Suggestion: Getting track information

Just started to use Toastify in a project I'm building (a usb plug-in media controller for spotify). I have already been able to have the device work with toastify's global hotkeys in order to control spotify, but I'd like to be able to get information back to the device, such as current song, artist etc.

With your hotkeys for copying and pasting the track name, I believe I should be able to do this (watch this space), but I was hoping that you might consider for future releases allowing to get information such as the artist, album name etc and copy those to clipboard as with the song name?

Things that would possibly be nice to have (I've no idea how many if any are feasible or possible):
-> Artist name
-> Album Name
-> Length of track, current position in track.
-> Playlist name

On a side note, again, I've no idea how possible this is, but it would be nice to modify the sensitivity of the volume controls?

Thanks for a great bit of software by the way.

Missed this post, sorry for the delay.
  1. You can definitely get Artist + Album (that's there now). Length of the song is probably somewhere in the Album art metadata, I'd have to take a look.
  2. I can't get current position or playlist, since Spotify doesn't expose that in a friendly way
  3. What do you mean by the sensitivity of the volume controls? Try changing the 5th checkbox (the rather awkwardly named "change volume only for Spotify") to see if that gets you better granularity
