Operating System: Mac OS X
starman was created to fulfill my personal need - I like listening to iTunes in party shuffle mode, "play higher rated songs more often." But switching into iTunes to check and set ratings is a hassle. starman has no playback controls or display. It works in conjunction with your existing iTunes controller. Tuck it behind your Apple iTunes controller for an exciting and whimsical way to interact with your music.
· Demo users can display ratings, but will see a reminder message if they try to set ratings.
What's New in This Release:
· Really, this is a bigger change in the code than 1.2 was from 1.1, but I didn't think it was worth a whole new version number.
· Calls to the system are now asynchronous. What this means to you is the display keeps updating as you move the mouse, even when starman is waiting for a response.
· Setting ratings is NOT asynchronous - I like feedback about the ratings set happening - so no change there.
