MMISoftware has released version 1.3.5 of Tunes Menu the easy to use menu-based CD search program for Mac OS X. Tunes Menu adds a small icon to the system menubar which allows access to a drop-down menu. Using this menu data can be copied from iTunes to perform searches of local online sellers/distributors of CDs. The menu also displays the search results, that is, the company name and cost of the CD, and provides links to the online store.

Tunes Menu is an easy to use menu-based CD search program for Mac OS X. The program adds a menu to the system menubar which allows rapid on-line searching for the best prices on CDs at selected local, country-specific, stores. To use Tunes Menu you simply select a song in iTunes, go to Tunes Menu and click 'Copy and Find'. Tunes Menu will then search local suppliers for the best price and report any fndings via the menu. To purchase the CD you simply click on the store name in the menu and the store website will open in your default browser.

Tunes Menu works by taking a copy of the album and artist details from iTunes (either the playlist or the iTunes Music Store) and then searching a range of online stores specific for the region of the user. At present Tunes Menu will search stores in the United States (Amazon US, CDUniverse, CD WOW! and SecondSpin); United Kingdom (101cd, Amazon UK, CD WOW!, Kelkoo and WHSmiths); Australia (CD WOW!, dStore, ozcdshop and TopShop); Germany (Amazon and CD WOW!); Ireland (CD WOW!); Netherands (CD WOW!); Norway (CD WOW!), Sweden (CD WOW!); and Hong Kong (CD WOW!). For European countries not listed above Tunes Menu will default to Amazon (Germany) and CD WOW! (Europe), and if no local stores are available the program will default to Amazon (US).
