Cool OS X toys!

I have been playing lately with a couple of really slick mac apps. The first one is called Coverflow (see screenshot below). Coverflow allows you to browse through your iTunes library using the albums artwork. Although it needs extra polish, it looks very promising. When you open Coverflow for the first time, it will take a couple of minutes to index your library. After that you can navigate through the albums either with your right and left arrows, using the horizontal scroll bar in the app itself or even using your mighty mouse horizontal scroll wheel.

Another app I have been really impressed with is called Quicksilver. Quicksilver is geared toward keyboard-savvy users. You can launch about everything from Quicksilver; websites, system preferences, applications, and even navigate through your iTunes library, all with a few keyboard strokes. Trust me on this one, Quicksilver will let you gain wizard-like speeds when working with your machine. BTW it is orders of magnitude faster than Spotlight. Aaaaand it is FREE!!
