What's New in Version 1.2.3
Fixes database error which kept some tools from not working properly on some systems
Genre feature useless, app description somewhat lacking
I bought this app to clean up my large iTunes database. In particular i was searching for a way to clean out a bloated Genre file which is storing a large number of orphan genre’s - genres without any songs associated with them. This app simply changes the genre field to one you specify, somethng you can easily do simply by sorting the genre field, “get information”, and changing the genre field there. It does nothing to clean out all the orphaned genre’s, something i’ve been trying to do for years.
The other features seem similarly simplistic. I suppose finding single artist songs and the two-fer’s and three-fers can provide some with some utility, but for me this program was a bit of a waste; okay, $2 is nothing to cry about but still. The reference page and description in the App Store also leave a little to be desired: how about simply listing the nine scripts for you.
My advice is to be sure you are looking for one of the features specifically noted in the app description before buying, and for Doug to be a little more specific with the feature descriptions. For me a wasted $2.
The little tool that I needed
Delete dead track … haaaaaaa I have been using a script created buy the same author for a long time. Some bugs on Maverick so I decide to look and then I found the app. 2$ for so much time earn … priceless and also to reward the author for his work.
Dude, you really need to review your design (icon and software) you could earn some visibility as people look design first now and then features. You got the feature so work on the design and you will be good.
Great, As Expected
Still can’t believe that some of these tools (like Deleting “Dead” Tracks) haven’t been built into iTunes yet. That said, I’ve used Doug’s Scripts to help keep our iTunes libraries organized over the years. The integration into a simple “App” is gret news to me, since the the scripts always required me to Copy/Paste into separate libraries for every user on my family’s iMac everytime an update occurred. Well worth $1.99.
