You Software has upgraded its You Control: Tunes software to version 1.4.1.

The free Universal binary utility is fully compatibility with iTunes 7.1 and it lets users take complete control of iTunes from the Mac OS X menu bar.

Alongside standard playback controls, the software can display track information in the menu bar, as a desktop overlay or from within custom menus.

Users can also navigate their entire iTunes library through the menu bar without leaving their current application.

The developer is offering the software as a free stand-alone product to showcase its You Control family of 19 system utilities, which has also been updated to version 1.4.1.

Users of You Control: Tunes have the option of upgrading to the full You Control to take advantage of the endless menu-bar customisations. The update provides several user-requested fixes and enhancements.

The $29.95 software lets user create custom menus to offer instant access to Address Book contacts, iCal events, news, stocks, weather and any file or folder on a Mac.
