If you listen to music on your Mac using iTunes, CoverSutra is the perfect companion app that makes the experience just better.

CoverSutra gives users easy access to player controls without having to pull up iTunes itself. Launch iTunes, start playing your music, and minimize. You can do the rest from CoverSutra.

Since CoverSutra is a must-have app for music lovers, we’ve managed to get our hands on 20 CoverSutra licenses worth $400 to give away to our readers!


While songs are playing, you can access a heads-up display window with player controls and information on the currently-playing song, along with album artwork. This window can be easily pulled up using a customizable shortcut, or from your dock.

The dock icon changes to show the album artwork of the song that is playing.

With CoverSutra, you can also control iTunes directly from your menu bar. Using a search tool in the spirit of Spotlight, you can perform searches and play songs at the click of a button. It also gives you quick access to your playlists.

When a new song starts playing, CoverSutra will send out a Growl notification with the song title, artist, album name and artwork.

The app also allows you to customize shortcuts to control iTunes with keyboard shortcuts.

Keyboard shortcuts aren’t the only way that CoverSutra can be customized. You can change the way in which album artwork is displayed, choosing from three options.

Lastly, Last.fm integration enables members to automatically update their profiles by entering their credentials in the app.

CoverSutra is a powerful little app that is a must-have for any music loving Mac user. Are you head over heels yet?

    This ranks up there with one of the most useless paid apps I've personally seen. It would be mildly amusing if it was free. If you actually pay money for this, you've got a lot of throw away income and you could put it to better use helping people that don't have any. I don't understand these apps that supposedly make things easier by replacing the default app. But you're still clicking on something, just a different place. What's the point?
