Browse your CD collection on screen

by Volker Weber

CoverFlow let's you browse your music collection on screen, as if it were a collection of CDs. This is an interesting concept, but I am much quicker in iTunes. Great coolness factor however.


In the previews of Windows Vista, they showed a way to navigate your music library via album art. It is a pretty way to do it, but I agree with Volker on its usefulness. Straight searching within iTunes or Spotlight is a more effective way to do it.

But it sure does look pretty:

Be careful with certain cover pics! This year's christmas father Klum will scan the blogosphere with Riya for pictures of his relatives, find his son-in-law and try sue you!

Whatever you think about that tool (slow, useless,...) it's a brilliant way to scroll through your albums... I like it (and yes, spotlight is much quicker, but no candy for your eyes!)

I think the comparison between CoverFlow and ie. iTunes is no a just one. The intention is clearly different: iTunes lets you do pretty straight and accurate searches, which are the right thing to do if you know what you are looking for. I imagine using CoverFlow to be more like looking through an old stack of CD's you didn't even remember you had in the first place without a real aim of finding something specific.

Similar (in concept at least) to Clutter?

Truly, you should be careful about these things.
