Album Art on Your Desktop


The latest update to Swinsian (1.3.3) includes a new feature that many people have been asking for: the ability to display album art for the currently playing track on the desktop. Enable ‘Show current track on desktop’ in the general panel of the preferences to turn it on. A couple of basic themes come built in that let you pick from a variety of different transition effects: fade, flip or slide.

The themes are written in html/css/javascript, and in the future you will be able to write your own themes or install ones created by other users.
