Your music CDs on your desktop


Clutter is a small Mac OS X application that lets you put your music CD covers on your desktop.

You can drag them anywhere, as they're really windows.

Each one looks like the real CD's cover, and double-clicking it tells iTunes to play that CD.

The inventor says to think of Clutter as an alternate user interface for your music collection.

When deciding what to play next, instead of searching through your huge alphabetical list, you can let your eye roam over the covers of your favorite CDs.

The main window shows the CD currently playing (the cover picture is looked up automatically from amazon or from iTunes 4, or you can paste in your own [very cool!]).

To keep a CD around for easy access, just drag the picture out of the window onto your desktop, then double-click it whenever you want to play it.

It's open source, and it's free.

Maybe the best things in life are, after all....
