A very popular plugin for iTunes on Windows, TuneUp, has finally arrived for Mac. TunesUp is an extremely useful piece of software that does a superb job in fixing mislabeled song information, finding missing cover art for you, and even recommending events and Wikipedia reads on your favs.
Best of all, a free (limited) version good for managing 500 songs is available to download and use for as long as you wish.
The developer's official description of the software says that “TuneUp is your Music Collection's new best friend. It plugs right into iTunes to automatically clean your incorrectly labeled music. It finds your missing album cover art, it lets you know when your favorite bands are performing in concert, and provides you with the best music content on the Web. Do you have a lot of songs named things like: Track 07, Unknown Artist, The Beetles, LeD_zePPeliN, Notorious B.I.G. vs. BIG vs. Biggie Smalls? Not anymore. Super easy to use.”
TuneUp uses Gracenote’s Global Media Database of more than 90 million songs to fill in missing or mislabeled information. The software merely adds a sidebar designed to compliment iTunes, and is extremely unintrusive. As noted above, TuneUp also does a great job in providing contextual content in relation to your musical tastes and preferred artists. Concerts, YouTube videos, Google news, and Wikipedia biographies are just some of the things a Gold license of TuneUp can nab you.
The free version of the software offers 500 Song clean-ups, 50 album covers, unlimited content, and unlimited reminders. The purchasable TuneUp Gold costs $11.95 a year, or $19.95 to download and own forever. This version offers unlimited Song Clean-Ups and album covers, unlimited content, and unlimited reminders.
