  • Instant Search
    Have your music library at your fingertips and find your songs right from the menu bar. Start playing a song or album is as easy as typing few letters in the search bar available at all times under the menu bar icon. No needs to switching to iTunes and back, no more distractions, smooth workflow only.

  • Instant Controls
    Play, pause, stop, rewind, fast forward, back and skip, all these basic controls are available right after clicking on the menu bar icon along with shuffle controls and the ability to directly jump into particular spot in the song. Or simply use multimedia keys on you keyboard. Volume slider included as well.

  • Instant Ratings
    Want to rate your favorite songs? Just hover over the song name and click the stars. Want to give some stars to concrete album? Move your cursor over the album artwork and choose the stars.

  • Artworks Dock Icon
    See the album artwork of the currently playing song right at your dock and have perfect notion of what you are listening to. The feature can be disabled or you can remove the dock icon completely.

  • Menu Bar Song Info
    Have the song name, album, artist and song length displayed right at your menu bar, or customize it via preferences and choose just some of these information to be visible. You can completely turn off this feature as well.

  • Growl Integration
    Let the Growl inform you of every new song being played. Information about song name, album name and artist performing is provided. Growl notifications can be disabled in app preferences as well (Growl 1.2 no longer supported on Mac OS X 10.7 Lion).

  • Show/Hide Shortcut
    Use predefined or define your very own keyboard shortcut to bring the Instant Player up in no time, without touching the mouse.

  • Snow Leopard & Lion System Compatibility
    Instant Player runs smoothly on both the Snow Leopard and the Lion OS X operating systems.


    If you want to hide the Dock icon, you'll have to do it manually (simply drag it from the Dock and drop elsewhere). After that, the native app icon will behave the right way, including proper response to "show/hide icon" settings in preferences.

  • What's New
    – Growl compatibility improved (Growl 1.2 no longer supported on Mac OS X 10.7 Lion).
    – Dock icon hiding fixed.
