Play Button iTunes Patch does not work on OS X Lion

2011-07-26 FA: Please see the latest post.

As you might have heard, Apple released OS Lion yesterday. I am not part of mac developer program so yesterday was the first time that I got to play around with Lion. One thing I noticed right away was that the upgrade broke my iTunes Play Button patch. I will look into fixing that as soon as I get some time.

Among other broken things were the VMWare Fusion bootcamp instance which I haven’t had the time to recreate. Plus Apple removed the four finger swipe app switch gesture, which I used quite a bit 😐 Time to find another utility to bring that functionality back.
