MiniPlayer adds to your notification center a powerful widget that permits you to control iTunes everywhere without open it!
ADVANTAGES OVER THE ITUNES WIDGET:
+ Same functionalities in less space
+ Start playing even if iTunes is closed
+ Completely integrated with iTunes
+ Display current track info (title, artist, album, artwork, duration)
+ Play/Pause toggle
+ Go to the next song or come back to the previously played track
+ Check the current playback time and drag the slider to fast forward or rewind
** If you have seen a movie the last time you have used iTunes, start a song from iTunes before using MiniPlayer.
** If player doesn't start, try to click next track button.
Ratings and Reviews
This is a nice alternative to the iTunes widget. As it says “on the box”, it uses much less space to display the controls than it’s offical counterpart, which is greatly appreciated on my 13” MacBook Pro. In that veign though, they could go a little further: when iTunes is not running, I’d suggest hiding the artwork and track name placeholders and collapsing the height as much as possible. Otherwise, it works swell. Thanks to the developers!
Very useful widget
Clean and small. Using much less space in NC.
Please add ability to love/dislike songs.
Usually I’m listening for radio stations provided by Apple and this like functionality will be very useful.
A flawless miniplayer for iTunes. Recently switched to Spotify so can’t use it anymore, rip. Adding Spotify support would be nice. Also the anonymous usage stats option and installation is nice, but it would be cool if there were preferences to show that, so they don’t get in the way after setup. Wouldn’t dare to drop a star for it, but certainly would be nice updates. :)
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
