Program your iTunes music when you want, the way you want.

Daypart is a simple yet full-featured Mac application that allows you to schedule iTunes playlists when to play, giving you an easy way to program varied musical content throughout the week in your home or workplace.

iTunes DJ, Smart Playlists, and Genius Playlists provide some degree of musical variety, but you still have to manually select, start, and stop each playlist one at a time whenever you want to switch from one to another. Daypart does all that for you and lets you program each day of the week with different playlists at different times. You can have Daypart play your iTunes DJ playlist in the morning, Most Recently Added around lunch, dance music in the afternoon, Classical for dinner, and audiobooks in the evening. And on the following day schedule something completely different. Plus, you can create more than one schedule to accommodate your many listening habits.

Daypart has been selected as a Macworld Mac Gem! "Daypart is an easy and effective way of playing the music you want when you want, all without too much hassle."
