A macOS app which allows you to control iTunes, Rdio, and Spotify, so you can advance songs (using your Mac’s Menu Bar) faster.
Skip Tunes was a personal side project I worked on from 2012-2016. I was frustrated with some of the current solutions available that let you control iTunes, Spotify, and Rdio from your Mac’s menu bar, so I designed my own. I then worked with a few macOS developers to bring the app to life and released it as a paid app in the Mac App Store in 2012.
I really loved this app (and still do!), but I ended up selling it in 2016 because I couldn’t dedicate the time it needed for regular maintenance and bug fixes.
I was responsible for all the visual design, created the marketing website, got a bunch of press coverage (a few here: Macworld, Cult of Mac, and Lifehacker), created marketing assets, and did a bunch of other things to help make it a success.
The last verison I designed (v3.1) continued to iterat off of the original idea. Album artwork always provided a nice canvas, but I always also liked the idea of keeping the visual design feel native to macOS.
I was always proud to continue to evolve Skip Tunes. It was always meant to be just a simple helper app.
