Discogs integration? This sounds like a great idea considering the quality of the Discogs database. But The Tagger doesn't even use any of the available data of selections as search strings, like artist name for instance. You have to type that in. It's faster using the web browser you normally use. In practice it doesn't even find data after several minutes that I can find in my web browser in no time. The Tagger failed to export album art that I added. After "export to iTunes" The Tagger may lose track of the path if the file is moved by iTunes, like that was unsolvable. Quick Look is nice, but iTunes integration would be better. The app seems stable and it has a few useful commands for editing tags. There's nothing you can't get for free or as donationware at dougs applescript site. I had all those functions and the scripts are more versatile too. The free app Tag is just as good as this and does'nt oversell its features that I truly think The Tagger does.

I don't see i, what it is better than others and where it can edit many more tags … tags are really limited and it is impossible to add new ones. Plus it cannot edit FLAC files.

One of the best on osx. Maybe a little more features could be welcome (like id3 version infos).

Works ok but too expensive. There are tons of free alternatives doing the same.

Finally, a simple, efficient and easy to use mp3 tagger which allows to rename files and guess tags from filenames. It's a shame it's not compatible with m4a lossless ! hope it'll do it one day...

As others point out, The Tagger is going to have to be good to justify paying anything for it, given that iTunes and now Songbird have the same facility for free. Certainly filling in tags is much slicker than either of these, and some of the facilities to copy between tags are very useful. (I particularly like the ability to set filenames from tags, which is an easy fix to some horrible messes). Unfortunately, the user interface needs a lot of improvement; I work with classical music, which tends to expose problems with such packages, and here is no exception; the user interface offers two panes, display on the left and edit on the right, and the sheer length of some tags in the display pane means that the edit pane on the right is pushed partly off the screen. Why not put edit below display or even merge them, allowing edit in place? In addition, some of the fields (particularly Title) in the edit box are far too short and, for some reason, the edit box is fixed width but the display box is variable width, which I feel is the opposite of what is needed. That is the big issue; the only other major problem is that auto=numbering (e.g. of filenames) doesn't support a leading zero (01,02,...09,10...), which means that the files don't sort properly in Finder and I have to use Name Mangler to rename them again (!) A decent first try, but I regret to say that there are better freeware packages for other platforms (MP3Tag for Windows, for one).

Why show my acc files up as 127 kbps instead of 128 kbps after deleting the personal tags?

Wow, it's like MediaRage with less features and costs the same. Lower the price please!

WAAAAAAY overpriced. This is something I would really use and enjoy, but call me back when it's under (WELL under) $20.
