Synergy for Mac OS X

Synergy is a tiny Cocoa application for Mac OS X 10.2 (and later) that puts three buttons to control iTunes in your menubar: previous track, next track, and play/pause. It also provides you with visual feedback about the currently playing tune and allows you to control iTunes via system-wide hot key combinations. These features provide a very fast way of skipping between songs when using the keyboard or the mouse, without having to switch to iTunes or access its Dock menu.

    Release Notes: "Xidius' Transparent Bar" replaces "Safari" as the default button set. This button set is especially designed for Leopard but also looks great on Tiger. The default button-set spacing was reduced to zero pixels, since the vast majority of button sets are designed with this in mind. Final compatibility changes were made for Leopard: this version of Synergy has been tested against the latest preview release seeded to developers.
