Songbird-An Open-Source Music Player

Songbird is an open-source music player that is powered by Mozilla. Don’t worry downloading this music player won’t get rid of your iTunes files, you can actually import all of your song files from your iTunes library. You can also get last.fm artist biographies right on songbird. Depending on the song your listening to an app on Songbird called Mash Tape accesses Flickr photos and Youtube videos on the artist that you are listening to at that moment. You can also download add-ons for Songbird; for example my personal favorite Lyrics Master. Lyrics Master brings up the lyrics for the song that you are listening to. You also have the option to save those lyrics and send them to a friend. You can add your own album covers to any of the songs, which is different from iTunes where the Album Cover comes with the songs that you download.

Another feature that Songbird boasts is Shoutcast, an internet radio. You can also look at upcoming concerts in your area by going to the concerts tab. One of the coolest features of Songbird has to be its integrated web browser, complete with tabs and bookmarks. While you are surfing the web on Songbird it will still run your selected app in the sidebar (such as Lyrics Master). Songbird is also compatible with the iPod collection. The only problem with Songbird is that it doesn’t play music videos or movies. It would be great if an update for Songbird allowed video files to be played. To sum it up Songbird is definitely something to check out and download, but whether it is a replacement for iTunes or any other desktop music player is up to you. I give Songbird a 9/10

Candybar-Icon Changing App for Macs

Candybar is an application that allows the user to change the usual, widely used application icons to anything their heart desires. When you open up Candybar it may seem a little confusing. There are a lot of icons that clog up the window and many tabs that lead to other utilities that the app offers. But after a little getting used too Candybar becomes a breeze to use. On the top window it shows your current application icon, and in the bottom window it shows icons that you can swap for your current ones. Candybar comes with pre-made icons that you can use but you can also use your own pictures as icons;you can even go online and download icons that other people have made. A good example of third-party icons that you can download would be Kaijubees(if you want to look at kaijubees just search it in google). So take a look at Candybar if you are bored with you app icons, the only problem is that it costs money. But don’t worry there is a trial edition! I give Candybar a 9/10.
