Our Favorite Add-ons for iTunes

We received some questions on the Minimal Pantone Wallpaper post about what programs were being used to display iTunes track info, so here it is: Bowtie and ByteController.

Bowtie is an application for your Mac that gives you an attractive widget on your desktop to display iTunes track information. There are also an iPhone and Windows remote applications, which work together to control your iTunes wirelessly.

Bowtie will scrobble your Last.fm tracks, create customizable shortcuts for controlling your music, and make listening to iTunes a more visually pleasing experience. It even has Growl support!

    ByteController is a tiny user interface utility designed to control iTunes from your menubar. ByteController gives you three buttons: Previous, Play/Pause, Forward. You can fast-forward or rewind by holding down on the Previous/Forward buttons, and like Bowtie, has Growl support.
