iTunes 7 and CoverFlow

September 14, 2006

I’ve talked briefly in the past with the original developer of CoverFlow, who recently sold the project to Apple where it’s now included in the new iTunes 7. I’m extremely happy for him. As an OSX developer, there’s always a worry in the back of your mind that Apple with pass you by with the next big set of technology changes, or otherwise step on your toes. Seeing an independent developer’s pet project go from a neat idea to being picked up by Apple itself is very gratifying, to say the least.
