Simplify: Spotify Mini Player for Mac

I’ve become a big fan of Spotify ever since they launched in the U.S. a few weeks ago. Service reliability has improved and the social features are starting to become useful now that my friends are signing up. Granted, It’s a much better experience after you pony up a few bucks a month to become a premium member.

However, with that being said, there’s a lot to be desired from their dedicated Mac player. Sometimes I hate the distraction of working with the full app all the time. I wish Spotify would integrate a mini version of their player like iTunes. Hopefully we’ll see something from them eventually.

Until they get on board I found a third-party app called Simplify that takes care of my mini player desire while looking pretty doing it.

Features include:

  • Mini PLayer with access to player control and volume.
  • Simplify displays the currently playing track on your desktop with album artwork.
  • Control Spotify the way you want with customizable controls.
  • The developer(s) seem pretty active. They’ve released a screenshot of new features on their twitter account. Cheers!

Simplify will set you back $4.99 on the Mac app store.
