My longest standing annoyance with iTunes is that you have to manually intervene every single time a 30 second sound clip ends. Continuous preview sure would be nice, wouldn’t it? Since iTunes 5 still didn’t offer a preferences option to take care of this, I’ve decided to take matters into my own hands.
Below you’ll find a simple AppleScript that takes care of business through some UI scripting. (I’ve always felt that UI scripts are sloppy, but this was about all I could think of — and it was easy.) The only disclaimer that’s due is that if you switch out of iTunes while previewing an album, iTunes will pop back up every time a new song starts. That’s not so helpful if you’re working, but you won’t even notice if you’re just sitting back and taking in the tunes.
Oh, and before I go, let me put in a plug for Coldplay’s new iTunes-exclusive Fix You EP that you can find on the front page of the music store. If for some unfathomable reason you don’t like Coldplay, you can still feel good about paying $3 for it because 100% of the proceeds go to hurricane relief. How cool is that?
Without further adieu, here’s the goods.
Feel free to modify and post it back up as you please.
Anyone else have any good UI hacks lying around?
