iTunes alternatives on Mac OS X

The truth must be told: iTunes is an average music player. Though the UI is simple and good like most apple products, it has lagged in features compared to music players available on linux and windows.A feature as basic as monitoring a folder and adding the latest music files to library is unavailable in iTunes. There are no plugins or themes. Despite the many faults many of us continued to use iTunes because of the lack of options available. But today the wait is finally over. Not one, but two music players have become credible contenders.

Hopefully these players will gain traction among OS X users which will finally force Apple to either step up in terms of features or open up iTunes for extensions.
