Track Timer


ATTENTION EXISTING USERS! The version of Track Timer originally distributed with Script Timer 2.6.4 does not work with iTunes 11 due to some change made by Apple. It is not clear whether this is a bug or deliberate. I am working on a way to get around this. In the meantime, I have created a modified version of Track Timer that seems to function in iTunes 11, albeit without the ability to shuffle tracks in a playlist. You can download it separately here. This modified version is now included in the distribution disk image as well as the original for new users.

Instructions for Use - only for existing users who download the modified version separately.
1. Navigate to your Items to Schedule folder. (If you need to access your Library folder, in Finder hold down the option/alt key and choose "Library" from the Go menu, then navigate to your Items to Schedule folder in Application Support/Script Timer.)

2. Rename the Track Timer script to something else (e.g. ‘Track Timer original’)

2. Unzip the ‘Track Timer modified’ script and rename it Track Timer.

4. Place the renamed script in your Items to Schedule folder.

5. If Script Timer is running, quit and restart.
