iTunes Cover Art Screen saver feature Apps
The iTunes Album cover screen saver just got a cool new feature.

Start up the iTunes screen saver and you'll see that you can now click on an album cover to start playing it. To exit there's now a button on the bottom right corner to exit.

An excellent way to spot an album you'd forgotten about and start playing it right away.

[crarko adds: Several people submitted variations of this hint, so I assume many of you have found this already. But if you haven't, here it is. I'm not sure, but this may also work in iTunes 10.4 in Snow Leopard. Let us know in the comments.]

I was talking with a co-worker yesterday who pointed this feature out. I too had thought it had been around a little while. So, like Craig, I am interested to hear some feedback about when this feature actually appeared.

I tried with iTunes 10.4 and 10.4.1 under OS X 10.6.8: no go. I copied the screen saver module from my Lion installation and tried to load it manually under Snow Leo: it made System Preferences crash. ;-\

Was introduced with Lion. It ties in with mouse movement no longer waking from sleep/dismissing a screensaver -- now you need to hit the keyboard to do that.
