FixTunes Download Corrects MP3 Tags and Adds Missing Album Art

Download of the Day: FixTunes

I am totally anal when I rip a CD onto my computer — I input the song title, artist, and album name as accurately as I can because when typos and lowercase text come up on my iPod, it makes me insane. When I get files from someone else who is not quite as OCD as me, I painstakingly try to fix any misspellings. I hate a disorganized-looking iTunes!

FixTunes had me in mind — it corrects your mp3 file names so that you don't have to look at something ugly, AND with the correct spelling, FixTunes gets you the right album art!

After downloading (Macs and Windows both welcome), you'll notice several FixTunes playlists in iTunes — when you go into the "Not Looked Up" playlist, you can select any song, and the FixTunes window will display the probable match. Click "Fix" and voila!

Now what else can the internets help my neuroses with . . . ?

Oops! I was misled too because it bills itself as a "free download" in several places. Like graduatedsqueaks says, choose wisely, and I'll keep on the hunt for a totally free version.

Is this an advertisement or an actual blog post? Considering its not FREE software I'd like to know. Are there any open source software titles that will do the same thing?

oh, hmm...i thought it was a free application...whoops...only 50 free, and I didn't even selectively pick what songs I wanted fixed, since I didn't read the fine print for it

The ONLY thing I'm anal about is my iTunes. I have to have every track properly spelled and capitalized and all the right artwork.

We have like 80G of music on our pc from all our old CDs and such that didn't have artwork and it drove us crazy. We used a program called Media Monkey to fix it. Sounds like it's similar to this!
