What's New in Version 1.5.7
* Fixed a possible issue when performing certain album artwork searches.
Best app I have purchased
This is without a doubt, the best app I have ever purchased using the app store or for any of my Macs. I have a 1TB+ flac server of every CD I own and loads of legally downloaded and shared music (Dead, WSP, Phish, etc. etc.) No app I have tried has been as powerful and accurate for fixing meta data as this one. I’m pretty careful when I rip now, but when I did the bulk of my library (all with XLD, and some back in 2001 on a Wintel machine with EAC) there were problems all over the place. I was able to clean up everything and re-sync my LMS server, Twonky server and Plex server in only 3 sessions. I would give this app 10 stars if I could. I just hope it stays this good.
Don’t use this on video files
I’ve used this app for about a year and a half and have been very happy with it until this week. Google changed something in Chrome with the latest update which makes any video file you put on your website not play the video if you put in an artwork image. I also load my videos in a podcast so I need the artwork image in the video file and while the file plays fine in other browsers it will not play the video in Chrome.
So if you create mp4 video files for your website and need to use the artwork image in the mp4 do not use this app.
I emailed the developer with no response so far. **UPDATE**: The developer seems to have checked out and doesn’t reply to emails and no update so far. Now I have to find a replacement app that works.
I’ll update this review if it is ever fixed.
Now if you don’t need to use this with video files it’s great and will work just fine for you. MP3 files, no problem.
The BEST tagger for Macs
I’ve been hunting for a tagging application to tweak my 1.5TB collection of music for ages and my search is over now that I’ve found Metadatics! I am very particular about how I tag my music (especially my large collection of live shows). With this app I can quickly and powerfully tag things so I can find them fast and efficiently in iTunes. I’ve you’re looking for a great tagger on the mac, look no further!
