Jelle did it again! He wrote Funes as an Objective-C learning app: a one-purpose application to rate your iTunes songs from the menu bar. It’s Mac OS X Leopard only for now, but he is working on a Tiger compatible version as well.
I was quite skeptical when he submitted his application on the Apple website. There surely must be a few 100 applications like this out there… no? Well, it seems there aren’t and Funes was an Apple staff pick right away. The next day Lifehacker and Simple Help featured his application, impressive.
Lifehacker reader dpseal notes that you can rate songs with a right click on the iTunes icon in the dock as well. This tip is even easier than the little Funes application. Quicksilver or GrowlTunes can be used to rate songs as well.
