I'd love to give this software a whirl, but it can't access any files not on the main system drive. I have 2 drives in my iMac, and all my media is on my larger "media" drive. Tagger will only show my main SSD that I boot off of.

I'm still looking for the "auto-tagging" part. To me that would be using the content from an existing tag or user input and conducting a search in order to get complete tag data including art.

This doesn't seem to be the aim of Tagger. It does have great functions for affecting tags, but these aren't more powerful than my handful of Applescripts I've collected since a long time.

I tried the 1.7beta too.

The developer is responsive and genuine, but I think the presentation of the features must be more to the point to not set the wrong expectations.

I t would seem the main fault lies with the VGmdb service that tagger uses, which looks promising but maybe isn't there yet.

After 10 minutes with Musicbrainz Picard I've identified and saved hundreds of my mislabeled files (A little accident when I was on the hurry). Easy pick.

Well duh, I got results with Musicbrainz, but they were all mostly wrong. ditched it and am now using MPFreaker that actually works automatically for about 30% of my files. When you have hundreds of empty album titles that's very helpful indeed. It's $10 and worth every dollar.

Once again, things go awry. MPFreaker breaks the usage rules for Discogs! I was temporarily blocked by Discogs, until I blocked MPFreaker from using it (with LIttle Snitch). I'm at a loss what to use.

Any chance of incorporating an "Identified Developer" ID from Apple? It's possible to get one without offering the app in the App Store…

Tagger starts on OS X 10.6.8 but when I go to my iTunes folder nothing is shown. If I drop a smaller folder with music files on the Tagger window it crashes with "Exception Type: EXC_BAD_ACCESS (SIGSEGV)
Exception Codes: KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS at 0x0000000000000000
Crashed Thread: 0 Dispatch queue: com.apple.main-thread"

Tagger looks promising but I can't use it.

Now tracks are shown at least. More than 10-20 tracks seem to cause crashes. No search results are coming though.

A great piece of software. Really deserves a "6" for ease of use; everything is displayed in one window, and all the functionality is quite obvious; in addition the package comes with documentation, in case that is necessary for some. I was editing tags within a minute of installing the program. Seems to edit all the pertinent information I can think of. Good stuff, good stuff.

Hi, great software, any chance that it can check subfolders as an option (or default) so that I may see all files in all subfolders in a directory? Thanks!

The MU write-up says OS 10.7+ for version 1.6.2, while the developer's readme page says 1.6.2 is for 10.6+.

Which is it, and is there a version for 10.6? It was not clear from the change-log page.

A little clarity would a long way, Mr. Developer.

Hi bbw7, it should work on 10.6; that was an error on our end. I've updated the listing to accurately reflect the minimum requirements.

Thanks for the prompt reply Ryan/MU, and for fixing the description.

... "an application that (auto) tags audio files"? for sure it doesn't even see FLACs and AIFFs that, as far as I know :-p , are audio files!

could the author, please, write somewhere which file formats his app supports? thanks ;-)

... what about specifying it in the app description, instead of just in a personal reply here? ;-)

Bilal Syed Hussain, I second that you please Specify what formats you support.

I only test it on 10.7. It might work on 10.6, I will update the readme

So far - awesome! i've wanted an app for this for quite a while. I love "renumber files" (renumber tracks) - that is so useful for what I do with batch bounces from logic using XLD. iTunes can di the same with a applescript, but this is much less clunky. Bravo! I wish it would set the total tracks too when you choose renumber, but its easy to do that separately and I can imagine scenarios where you would NOT want both to happen at once.
