Useful and usable application, search are very good. On the other hand the interface is buggy and it's slow, e.g. during the saving of picture it's almost not possible to continue, no progress indicators and sometimes tasks (like deleting covers from an entire album) aren't completed.

Great start! After getting frustrated with iTunes 7's anemic cover fetching ability I tried a couple of different 3rd-party apps and this one is the best by far. One major issue, though, is that it doesn't seem to deal well at all with multi-volume (i.e., double) albums - it just can't seem to find artwork for any that I've tried. And I wish it would give you the ability to just forcibly choose a cover from the artist of an album that it can't place, which would make the aforementioned problem not such a big deal. Outside of that, a job very well-done.

Good start, but doesn't seem to handle compilations as a single unit.

I also dragged a cover to an album that already has one, and it now has two pieces of art with no apparent way of deleting the old one!

The Help menu produces a dialog saying "Help isn't available for Art Collector" - this program needs a help file, especially if it isn't obvious how to do something as simple as removing art from a file!

Easy to use, has an nice interface, got album art for all that I wanted. I only wish it had a way to show only albums that don't already have album art. And you can't beat a macZOT price of $3.95!

It would be great if you had a button that would fetch the artwork for EVERYTHING. That way, you wouldn't have to go one album at a time ;)

Could be a great software. But it messes all my actual covers...

There's an issue with setting album art for AAC...
it will delete the other covers (no multi-cover support).

This is a bug in iTunes and it's not our fault.

We'll put a warning in the next revision of the app.

Thanks!

Awesome, awesome, awesome. The first artwork grabbing app that actually works. Lovely interface, totally intuitive, and the fact that it gives you many different covers to choose from is great. 10 points!

This seems to have trouble in 10.6.4. I opened it and it crashed.
