iTunes SDK

I’m a big fan of iTunes, and I’ve been waiting for the chance to play around with the SDK. My main goal was to see if I could talk to iTunes via CF, using the COM interface described in the SDK. So far, I’m not having any luck, but I haven’t given up. However, I found some simple c sharp code that I’ve modified (along with help from a much more knowledgeable friend). The application, which is currently a simple console application, runs at the same time as iTunes. Everytime I change a track, the application is notified. The application then sends a request to a URL on my blog (a hidden URL of course ;) that updates the track listing you see on the right.

If anyone wants the code, let me know. When I have more time I plan on turning the application into a tray app so it doesn’t take up space in my task bar.

I have to say - the more I look at c sharp, the more impressed I am. It is a very elegant language and for some reason it just “clicks” better in my mind than Java does.
