Josh’s post yesterday, Five Slick Menu Bar Apps for Controlling iTunes, reminded me how much love there is for menu bar apps. Particularly those with the purpose of controlling (taming) iTunes (the beast).
Today we’ll be looking at which iTunes controller came out as AppStorm favourite, the new Mac apps released this week, and why you should buy Apple stock, amongst a host of other exciting things (NOTE: I’m in no way qualified to give financial advice, that was a joke). In the inimitable words of Dave Dameshek, let it begin!
Sometimes the smallest things ignite the most heated arguments, this week we were all asking the question; how do you pronounce “Mac OS X”?
This is the second episode in feature series called ‘What’s Hot’ that will look to give you something interesting to chew on at the end of the week. We’ll look at any great new Mac apps (including editor and reader favourites), interesting pieces of news, and other miscellaneous artifacts…

What is it that grabs you about your favorite Mac app? Is it the extensive feature list, or the attractive user interface, perhaps? Our favorite Mac applications make use of a variety of things that make them great, but relatively little can impact the usability of an app more than the inclusion of seemingly insignificant integration features.
I’m talking about those little features that you almost never notice, until you use an app that doesn’t have them—features like an automatic move-to-applications-folder on download, or in-app updating.
These features can make or break the integration of an app into your daily workflow, so it’s important for developers to understand the necessity for them.
