The program works similarly to the way a karaoke machine does, with the lyrics of the song shown on a little screen next to the music player. They scroll down as the music plays. This will happen automatically and you won't have to search for anything. Additionally, the size of the window that's shown on the desktop can be adjusted as well as its appearance. It comes with various skins that you can use to customize its design.
You only have to push play to start listening to music on iTunes and, automatically, you'll see the lyrics of the entire song on the MiniLyrics screen. Currently, the tool is much more effective with songs in English, although its database does have millions of songs available thanks to the users across the globe who have contributed.
The program allows you to enjoy the lyrics of each song in a very minimalist fashion, showing you only the text scrolling down on your screen. It doesn't need to display any other options. So, you can see the text at any time, even if you're doing something else on your Mac.
