Ratings and Reviews
Not working since the most recent iTunes update
When trying the use this app, iTunes will crash after approximately 250 duplicates have been processed, causing Song Sergeant to quit working as well. I wrote to the developer so said they are awayre of the problem and are developing a “work around.” For now, the app cannot process more than about 250 duplicates at a time.
This app will get rid of orphaned files that may be hiding in your iTunes library. I haven’t found anything else that will do that.
Finding duplicates where you pick the bit rate and format you want!
There are very few apps, if any, that do what this app does for your Itunes music collection. You specify your favorite format and the bitrate you want in your collection. So if it searches and find "Eleanor Rigby" in 128Kbs, 256Kbs, and 320Kbs, you can say I prefer 256Kbs and all of the other "Eleanor Rigby" files are duplicates. Or you can just say keep the highest bitrate. Plus you can say, I favor .m4a over .mp3 and it will take that into account too. It's tough to find music software that searches for duplicates with diffeent bitrates and formats taken into account. It will also optionally consider song length, album title, etc. So if it finds "Eleanor Rigby" on two different albums and I tell it to only find duplicates within the same album, it will keep one copy of the song for each album.
The only thing I would change is to let it work directly against your files. It should't have to be in loaded into Itunes. I would also like to see Flac support if it goes directly against the files.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
