So keeps working when iTunes is updated? Currently I run iTunes 11.2.2. This is working for you users?

Yep, TuneSpan is fully compatible with iTunes 11.2.2 and continues to work with iTunes updates. It is possible that an iTunes update could break some part of TuneSpan, but that hasn't happened in a long time. But if it does, I will try my best to release a timely fix, and I would post about the issue on Twitter (@RandomApps, @TuneSpan) if you want to follow me there.

In one word: Excellent !
This is the way software should be ! The app relocated my complete music library (almost 450 gigs of music) to an external harddisk without a single problem.
It just works, cleans up after and the developer is very responsive !
Worth every penny !

That's very easy to do though. I moved mine to a 2TB external drive, and then in iTunes changed the location of the music library. I've moved it around several times over the years.

Great app that does what it says easily and transparently. Just gave me a seamless way to offload movies to an external disk that I don't need to have sucking up all my precious disk space. Love it!

Thanks so much for purchasing TuneSpan. I'm sorry that TuneSpan is not intuitive for you.

I agree that a video tutorial would be very helpful. I don't have a great excuse for not having one other than this is a personal project, and I am much more passionate about the programming side of things and don't have any expertise in creating a decent tutorial video. I know my help information is lacking in some areas as well. I need to get some other people on board to help me create some worthy video tutorials and better help information for TuneSpan.

Please feel free to get in touch with me directly with any specific questions or just to discuss TuneSpan.

To the developer --

Does v 1.0.3 work with the new iTunes that just was released (which shows in Software Update as iTunes v 10.7)?

I love this wonderful program, it is awesome. I hope v 1.0.3 works with the new iTunes 10.7, since I just installed it already without thinking to ask this first. Guess I'll find out when I finish typing this posting, and if v 1.0.3 I'm hoping the developer will come out with an update fix if needed real soon, since this seems to be a well-supported, labor of love application.

Thank you for the feedback, from my testing TuneSpan works fine with iTunes 10.7. I downloaded iTunes 10.7 right when it came out and I had no issue with using TuneSpan.

I would like to hear exactly how TuneSpan is not working for you so that we can resolve this issue promptly.

Please get in touch with me directly so we can try to figure this out more quickly: http://contact.tunespan.com

So sorry, I misread part of your post, I thought you were saying that you had already experienced an issue with iTunes 10.7. But, you were just checking to make sure it does work. It does! :-)

Please don't hesitate to get in touch with me directly if you do happen to have any issue or have any other questions.

Well done Tunespan developer! This app worked flawlessly when I needed to move a very large iTunes library to an external drive. Yes I know that I could have read up on the multi-step procedures and done this migration manually, but it was definitely worth the $14.99 to have it go correctly the first time while I was out enjoying the holiday weekend with my family. The process took almost 9 hours and iTunes booted up and acted like normal the first time I tried it with the new library location.

Until Apple makes iTunes housekeeping procedures more intuitive, I'll with specialized apps like Tunespan.

Hey! This one cool iTunes manager!
Great UI with some nice twists.

Certainly a app to watch for.

The question of the day: will it be free on v1 release?

Thanks!

...About the price, I am not totally positive what will happen when TuneSpan gets to 1.0 yet, but I can talk about what I have been thinking.

I have been thinking it would be nice to get TuneSpan on the Mac App Store, and sell it for no more than $9.99. But also, I have been taking donations, I would not want to rip those people off, so I hope to be able to give donors free licenses. But, I know I will run into some hurdles there since Apple limits the amount of promo codes that a developer can give out per version. Anyway, that all is on my mind.

About getting TuneSpan on the Mac App Store, there are a lot of barriers with Apples new Sandboxing policy, I believe I should be able to get TuneSpan approved for the Mac App Store, but it will need a few temporary sandboxing entitlements to make it function at all. I am just not sure how wise it would be to sell it through the Mac App Store, knowing that Apple could pull the rug out from under it at any time, leaving the customers in the worst position. But, for me, the Mac App Store would be the most convenient way to distribute TuneSpan, so it is something that I am going to be continually looking into.

Honestly, in the beginning of working on this project, I loved the idea of it being free forever. But, as I get a bit older, it would be really nice to be able to make some money off of this app that I've put some much love and time into. I still wouldn't want to charge more than $10 for it, but I think it would be in my best interest, and TuneSpan's best interest, to try to figure out how to get some income from it.

TuneSpan 1.0 is now available on the Mac App Store!

It is currently on sale at an introductory price, but I've decided on $14.99 as the final price.

Beta versions of TuneSpan can continue to be used as a trial/demo and will always be available for 10.5 users.

I've just released TuneSpan 1.0.3 on the Mac App Store.

And, in regards to was I wrote in my long post above... I wanted to say that this version is Sandboxed, and at this point I feel confident about the future of TuneSpan on the Mac App Store!

I've tried practically all the library managers for iTunes out there, but this one is unique. It doesn't do anything you couldn't do yourself. However the fact that you simply select a folder, select files you would like to move to it and click "Span..." to execute your choices saves a great deal of time.

As you probably know iTunes is very inflexible as far as being able to split your media collection and put them in more than one huge directory or even move them from one drive to another without breaking all the links. iTunes is also not smart enough to relink files from the same album after you've located the first one. TuneSpan saves you from this grief and trouble. I wish this application existed years ago, as it would have saved me tens of man hours reorganizing my collection.

Add to that, TuneSpan is donation-ware and you've got something truly worthy of your donation. You have nothing to lose, just read the manual to understand what it does before you click "Sapn..." the first time. (But there is a handy undo ability too.)

There is room for improvement though, thus the 4 stars. I sent an email to the developer suggesting features that i'd would like to see this past weekend, but have yet to get a reply. A few are very simple and one is very complicated and might be out of scope of the goal of this program. Considering that this app isn't even at 1.0 status, I think it has a lot of great potential to really allow power users to control their media and organize it they way they want it to.

This app is just what I needed. With a large music, podcast, movie, and tv show library it's difficult to fit it all on my mac. With TuneSpan I am able to keep everything neat and tidy on different folders on my NAS + external drive. This solution works great with my AppleTV, and it's a perfect solution to a problem that keeps getting bigger.
