CoverSutra is a gorgeous little app to enjoy cover art from albums and play your iTunes library from your desktop.

I admit that I love using CoverFlow to browse and playback my music in iTunes, but this little app might just change my musical habits. First of all, it serves as a player for your iTunes library, with your list appearing in a sleek dark interface and playback buttons present in a floating dark window.

Secondly, CoverSutra knows how to put cover art forward like no other app. Every time you play a track from a new album, the cover will discreetly appear on your desktop, with its rating. You can also choose from three different CD case styles to display albums in.

Cover Sutra includes a full range of keyboard shortcuts by which you play back your songs and is fully set up to work with your Apple Remote. Users will also like having Growl support and Last.fm integration, so you can still scrobble what you're playing. Additionally, the latest version includes Spotlight search, which is much more powerful and faster than the search feature you originally have in iTunes.

Thanks to a gorgeous interface and intuitive tools like keyboard shorcuts, Growl and Last.fm support, Apple Remote and Spotlight search integration, CoverSutra is an excellent way to enjoy your music. Definitely recommended.
