Better controls for iTunes
This week's roundup of new Mac apps includes Denied, a tool to help you make the best music playlists possible. Plus, another music app called Finely Tuned for media playback. Read on!
DaisyDisk automatically identifies large files that you no longer need and can safely delete them to regain disk space. It even supports scanning multiple volumes in parallel to help you save time.
Denied - Skip Terrible Music 1.3.0
Compatible with iTunes and Spotify, Denied can set up filters based on song attributes like titles, albums, artists, and explicit language—and you can also add songs to your blacklist when they are playing.
The app encrypts your data to keep it protected from prying eyes, includes a random password generator to create unique logins, and can synchronize its data across multiple devices using either Dropbox or iCloud.

Finely Tuned allows you to control media playback through a set of custom keyboard shortcuts, shows information about your songs right on your menu or Dock, and can even automatically display lyrics alongside your favorite music.
GIF Brewery 3 - Video to GIF Creator 3.0
The app lets you add filters, captions, and overlays to your clips, as well as resize or crop them as needed. You can also generate GIFs through screen captures, importing files from your iOS device, or recording from your iSight camera.
The app displays CPU and disk usage, uptime, battery cycles, and network activity—and even features a detailed report on memory allocation to help you diagnose application performance problems.
