Macworld: Matias offers iTunes-friendly Key Maestro

Matias Corporation, maker of iLounge favorite iPod Armor, has introduced Key Maestro ($19.95), a software package for Macintosh users that eases use of iTunes in the background while you work in other applications.

“Lots of people like listening to iTunes in the background while they work, but it’s a pain to have to go into it just to skip a song or pause it or whatever else.  With Key Maestro, you can keep working in the application you’re in, and control iTunes in the background using a keyboard shortcut. It’s really handy,” said Matias’ Vesna Vojnic. A free trial is available at Matias’ website.

I love the mini player that floats on top of other programs all the time. This seems superfluous.

I have a logitech mediaplay wireless mouse, which I bought for 50 CND and I am very satisfied. it controls play/pause/forward/backward like the ipod remote and can operate 10 feet away from the computer. i think its a better investment than buying a piece of software to do this job.

I think this is really useful. I hardly ever use the mouse on my computer. Keyboard shortcuts are much more efficient. 

Although.. I use Synapse. Which is just as good.

What I want to know is.. when are they gonna make one for windows! One that lets you rate your songs too!
