The iTunes mini-player is back


We can like the mini-player of the Music app, which displays the cover of the song in large and all but hey, we must admit that Apple has done nothing better than the mini-player of iTunes! Music MiniPlayer is a replica developed by Mario Guzman who has a good taste for nostalgic, but also practical things: it takes up less space than today’s version OK, it is possible to remove the cover of the mini Music player so that it takes up even less space. But he’s not pretty, na.

Music MiniPlayer is a 100% native app, written with AppKit and Swift, whose interface has been created with Core Graphics and Core Animation. It is a universal binary to install on any Mac starting from macOS Big Sur. Mario Guzman is no stranger: we also owe him the excellent Music Widget, which is not used as a widget but as an independent app.
