Release Notes

Toastify 1.8.3 = 10/3/2016

  1. BUG: Toastify was no longer minimizing Spotify on startup (when the setting was set) - thanks darrenshare!
  2. Exception handling cleanup

Toastify 1.8.2 - 8/3/2016

  1. Fixed crash when clicking on toast (that should show Spotify)

Toastify 1.8.0 - 8/3/2016

  1. Toastify now loads album art again
  2. Toastify no longer causes Spotify to consume copious amounts of system resources (Spotify readded the current playing song to the title).
    1. We lose full control of Spotify, such as thumbs up / down :(
  3. Added setting to allow you to keep your computer awake while Spotify is playing music
  4. We have started collecting anonymous usage stats - opt out in Settings.

Toastify 1.7.8 - 26/8/2015

  1. Fixed toast stealing focus (thanks to everyone who reported this)
  2. Fixed version constantly bugging to update

Toastify 1.7.7 - 12/8/2015

  1. Fixed incorrect binaries pushed in 1.7.6 which caused the toasts to disappear on some devices

Toastify 1.7.6 - 10/8/2015

  1. Support for extracting Artist / Song from the latest version of Spotify (thanks arosner3 and emptythecache!)
  2. Fixed empty toast during launch
  3. Fixed fps drop (in at least one case) as per https://toastify.codeplex.com/discussions/641430

Toastify 1.7.5 - 23/3/2015

  1. Experimental hotkeys for thumbs up and thumbs down (fixes a long standing request, #11693)
  2. 13363 - use regular - instead of Unicode dash for "artist - title" to help with some older bits of ASCII only software

Toastify 1.7.4 - 22/3/2015

  1. Added a setting to minimize Spotify on launch
  2. Feature Request 13516: Save current track to file (useful for scenarios such as piping the current playing track to Open Broadcaster Software etc.)
  3. Installer will now terminate any lingering ChromeDriver processes

Toastify 1.7.3 - 20/3/2015

  1. Remove warning that hotkeys without a modifier are invalid (since they were, in fact, valid). Tracked under issue #13510
  2. More robust killing of Spotify (cleanly and eventually forcefully) when exiting Toastify
  3. Avoid potential for duplicate hotkey entries in the Settings list

Toastify 1.7.2

  1. Corrected version (bug #13508)
  2. Added support for Win key in hotkeys (thanks bwp11!)

Toastify 1.7.1

  1. Support for Spotify v1
    1. This support is much more invasive than previous versions due to changes made by Spotify (primarily the removal of the Artist / Track from the title bar). It has some benefits, but also comes with some down sides (we must restart Spotify when launching Toastify). There will also be bugs.
  2. Support for Toast positioning on high-DPI screens, you may need to re-position your Toasts

Toastify 1.7.0

  1. The big 1.7!
  2. Added Fast Forward and Rewind hotkeys. These aren't the most repeatable since Spotify doesn't have direct support for this, but you should be able to scrub around slightly. - Thanks MexicanR!

Toastify 1.6.9

We're on a roll of a releases!
  1. WI 13235 - thanks to some undocumented API goodness we now have high quality album art, sans little Spotify icon! Thanks Eater!
  2. Bug 13208 - Added some extra code to try to force the Toast window to stay on top, looking for feedback to see if this works otherwise we'll have to look into more drastic measures.
  3. WI 13228 - Tweaks to the paste code to increase reliability of the "paste current song" hotkey

Toastify 1.6.8

  1. WI 13228: Add a "Paste Current Track" hotkey (similar to the existing "copy" hotkey but Toastify will attempt to paste the text into the current application as well
    1. Made the clipboard template in Settings more resilient to empty templates and templates without the {0} replacement marker
  2. WI 13229: The installer will now kill Toastify before starting to avoid the cryptic file write error when upgrading Toastify without exiting first

Toastify 1.6.7

  1. The toast is now draggable! Hold down the Control key and drag the toast around to permanently reposition it. Note that the toast will default to the lower corner above the system time if it is positioned off screen (or on the boundary between screens)
  2. Clicking once on the tray icon will show the toast (double clicking as well, though this also brings up settings)

Toastify 1.6.6

  1. WI 13151 - add option to suppress the "launch Spotify?" dialog
  2. recompile so that hopefully Toastify is no longer marked as a generic trojan by Kasperspky

Toastify 1.6.5

  1. Handled a bunch of edge cases in the Spotify album art retriever so you should be seeing more album art!
  2. 2027 & 13139: There is now an option to control only Spotify's volume through the hotkeys. This doesn't change the volume in the client (Spotify doesn't support that) but it will change the Windows Audio Mixer volume for Spotify, achieving a similar result. By default this is off to avoid potential confusion from users who are adjusting the volume of Spotify through Toastify and the client/system and don't know about the mixer.

Toastify 1.6.3

  1. Better usage of the Spotify search API for album art loading resulting in much faster album loading and fixes Bug #13081 (Incorrect album art) - thanks ericrice!

Toastify 1.6.2

  1. Long Song / Artist names now cutoff with ... (Issue 13056, thanks epicmiro!)
  2. Fixed update checking + added automatic update notifications
  3. Slight updates to the default Toast visuals (larger artist name, longer duration)

Toastify 1.6.1

Refinements based on user requests / bugs from the forums - thanks everyone!
  1. Toast staying "top most" should now be fixed - thanks tmcdouga!
  2. Album art now downloads directly from Spotify (thanks epicmiro!)
  3. Settings window is now single instance and can be opened by double clicking the Toastify icon
  4. default toast template has now changed to match the Spotify redesign. You won't see this if you have an existing config though.
  5. Support the F10 (and other System) key as a shortcut key

Toastify 1.6

Major update to toastify with a slew of new settings, UI and reliability updates.

Changelog (1.6)

  1. Toasts should now appear above all other Windows, even on Windows 8!
  2. Fixed crash in Settings dialog when setting values to invalid settings

Changelog (1.5)

  1. declared 1.5 release - woo!
  2. Added Start Menu icon to installer
  3. Added support for Windows 8

Changelog (1.5 Beta)

For a full list see the checkin history
  1. New Settings page (right click on the tray icon) for convenient access to all of Toastify's settings - no more editing XML files!
  2. More reliable hotkey handling (even when using applications that normally capture keyboard input)
  3. New and improved toast including album art (where possible)!
    • hover over the toast to keep it sticky
    • click the toast to bring up Spotify
  4. No multiple instances of Toastify
  5. New Settings:
    • Launch Toastify with Windows
    • Launch Spotify with Toastify
    • Close Spotify with Toastify
    • Option to only show toast on "Show Toast" hotkey
    • Hotkeys are now set through the settings window and include a message about invalid hotkeys (including the reason)
  6. Miscellaneous cleanups, tweaks, performance improvements and spelling corrections

This version has no settings dialog. Any settings must be changed be manually editing the xml file.

Reviews for this release

     
Edit: Just got Windows 10 today and can confirm that it works perfectly with shortcuts as well as toasts! Thanks creator! Love this little nifty program :) For anyone who uses Spotify - get this! You'll see what a mean. Can't understand how I could have survived without this. En elogé to you dear developer for offering us all this little application for free. 5 out out 5. Without a doubt.

Absolutely amazing, it stopped working after about 10 minutes but I just restarted my computer and it has been working since. Totally recommended!

Very helpful

Great! Totally recomended, expecially the Hotkeys feature, now I can code and manage Spotify without maximize/minimize. Thanks guys!

Thanks for the update! Now it is working on windows 10 ...

Works great with the most recent Spotify version. Thank you!!
by graoweiz on Mar 22, 2016 at 3:26 PM
     
Works like a charm on Windows 10 Pro 64-bit with the latest version of Spotify (1.0.24.104.g92a22684)! :D Thank you dev for keeping this awesome program both free and up to date! :)

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR MAKING THIS APP! PLEASE HAVE MY BABIES! Seriously though, I really appreciate it.. great app, and couldn't live without it!
by chromosomekeep on Sep 28, 2015 at 11:10 AM
     
I'm on Windows 10. Shortcuts only work if I don't have Spotify minimized. Kind of defeats the purpose.
by sirEgghead on Sep 27, 2015 at 5:16 AM
     
I like it, but it's a bit glitchy. It doesn't always show toasts after tracks switching. And when I manually show toast with hotkey or with clicking to the Toastify icon in the taskbar, it always says "Nothing's playing", even though music is actually playing.
by goodtime_vs on Sep 22, 2015 at 7:16 AM
     
Its a gr8 add for spotify all that spotify misses in general ! But i got one problem, know that it aint a part of the rewiev but would help a bunch if any one could anser why when i hit a hotkey for say "Next track" it skips several tracks or when i press "Pause/Play" it pauses, plays and puases..... any 1 know what thats about ?
by Mins0r on May 12, 2015 at 12:24 AM
     
This application is just what spotify needs. Especially since you can set your own keyboard hotkeys. Keep up the great work!
by Mr_Noah on Mar 22, 2015 at 3:59 PM
     
After updating I was expecting it to work like it has for everyone else; however it still thinks it's at version 1.7.0 rather than 1.7.1 and constantly asks me to update. Also I can't change the offsets/position of the toast. Just stays at what it was set to before update. At least it works though.

Perfect! The hotkeys works excellent.
by Stakker on Jun 13, 2014 at 12:43 PM
     
JUST WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR!! I needed hotkeys for Spotify on Windows 8.1 and that's exactly what I got with this release. Great job dev!!! VERY NIFTY!
by hyperloke on Jun 10, 2014 at 6:57 AM
     
Great release and very handy. This tool works perfectly with the latest version of Windows 8 and also the latest version of Spotify. Good job!

Is 'nifitiest' a word? Because this is the niftiest thing I've seen all day. Works great!
by 2nihon on Dec 9, 2013 at 2:41 PM
     
Works great! Just missing a hotkey for thumbs up/down. Thanks!

Awsome! Simple and clean.

Thank you so much. This is fantastic.

Great idea, super useful, thank you!

Excellent! Just too handy! It's an amazing app!
by WolfLambert on May 25, 2013 at 3:33 PM
     
This app is AMAZING!! It took me over 18 months of putting up with Spotify's lack of global hotkeys to find this app, but I'm so glad I did. I'm pretty dang pumped that I can use all of my old Winamp global hotkeys now. Thanks so much for your hard work! Hotkeys might not seem like much, but when you work at a computer and listen to music as much as I do, they really do make things so much easier.
by Veevos on May 10, 2013 at 7:30 PM
     
Wow thanks for this very useful application! Works like a charm!
by mogipogi on May 9, 2013 at 11:49 AM
     
Very nice hotkey stuff - if only the volume up/down changed spotify volume, and not system volume!! Please add that!! :)
by abeJAY on Apr 4, 2013 at 5:53 PM
     
Must agree with rwilson513 and Gameguy75 in that the only flaw i can really find with this is the ability to not set the toast to always appear on top of all the other windows - if that change were made this would without a doubt get a 5 star from me! Great work! Updated 3/6/13 - With the "always on top" fixed in 1.6, updated to 5 star as promised!
by Vader1809 on Mar 6, 2013 at 1:29 PM
     
I have to agree with Gameguy75--my only gripe is also that you can't see the Toast popup in front of other windows. This problem makes Toastify (for me) unusable :( Would you be open to making the source code available for others to modify? Or making a change for the Toast to stay on top of all windows? If that was fixed, it's totally a 5-star app! Great idea!
by rwilson513 on Feb 15, 2013 at 2:00 PM
     
My only gripe is that you can't see the toast in front of windows you can only see it on the desktop someone tell me if this can be changed
by Gameguy75 on Nov 17, 2012 at 7:22 PM
     
really nice.

Absolutely required. I cannot believe a plugin is required for these functions. GREAT WORK!
by daltonparsons on Dec 28, 2011 at 3:11 PM
     
Just what spotifiy needs... Why don't they implement this in the main client :/
by inversechi on Nov 18, 2011 at 8:23 AM
     
I love this!!! It makes it so much easier to change music etc. But when you change the volume, it changes the computer volume, and not spotifys :(
by andym7 on Feb 9, 2010 at 10:25 AM
     
Great app! Shame that you have to have a premium account to get an API key otherwise there would be more apps for Spotify around. Just one quick note - "nothings playing" should be "nothing's playing" or even just "nothing playing." Thanks again - sorry to complain about such a minor thing.

Wonderful!!! I'm surprised this havn't been implemented by default in Spotify which otherwise is one of the best implementations I've used. I'd love the shortcut Ctrl+Alt+O to open a small search dialog to search, queue and select tunes. The search reult could be displayed in spotify or in a small simple list that could be navigated directly with the keyboard (arrows and enter).
by matsnas on Mar 9, 2009 at 8:28 AM
     
WOW!!! This is exactly what I want. However, an option to turn of the shortcut key would be nice, seeing that some of the applications I'm using also have those keys registered.
by pcm2 on Mar 5, 2009 at 5:41 PM
     
Using Windows 10 Build 10162 and Toastify does not work. Will not toast on track change, play/pause etc. When using hotkey to show toast, an empty toast pops up (no track information whatsoever).

1.6.5 is detected as Trojan.MSIL.Crypt.aqpr by kaspersky anti virus, 1.6.3 works ok though. Update: 1.6.6 no longer detected as trojan, works ok :)
