Nice free tagging application. Its a little rough around the edges (crashes sometimes), but for the price it's the one I'll be using. Overall its a pretty simple editor. I like it because most of my podcasts never makes it to iTunes and this app affords me the opportunity to add proper tags along with custom artwork to my podcasts.

I love Tagr and have used it to tag thousands of songs. Recently when I drag numbered files into the program they aren't sorted numerically. Any idea what is happening?

Love this app. Simple, fast, does what I want it to do and nothing else. Gets me the artist, titles, cover and then does file naming, capitalization & numbering all at once. And then leaves me the option to override the data from discogs.

Tagr makes the arduous task of correctly tagging mp3 files a breeze. It uses discogs.com for both cover art as well filling in track names, which is ultra handy. Throw in a responsive, friendly and handy developer and it's a win. Cheers!

I've been using Tagr for years, and have found it to be the best and most user friendly mp3 tagger out there. The developer has been updating the app regularly, and it continues to get better with each teak. Would be a bargain at twice the price.

Very nice app! I use Tagr since a long time for editing of tags and filenames for audio files outside of my iTunes library - especially for audiobooks. I like the program: It does what it should and it is easy to use. I use the app for changes of tags, album covers and especially for the renaming of a big numbers of files in one step. The best feature of version 4 for me is creating own patterns (combinations of tags with customized text) when renaming files. Remarkable are the really quick responses on requests. Keep it up!

Been using this app since 2012 (v 3.1.2). Recently upgraded to v 4.0. Does exactly what title implies. Great app for creating/changing mp3/m4a tags. I have a very larger music library and this app saved me so much time.

Recommended for podcasters. Been using this app a multiple times a week for a year now. It works really well and does exactly what you need it to do with nothing to get in the way. It's one of those almost invisible apps that you don't even think about and that's exactly what makes it so great.

Information not well organised is information lost. This is especially true when you are dealing with things like a huge music library with files coming from different sources, and this is where Tagr comes in. Having already used Tagr 3.1.2 for some misnamed mp3s and finding it very useful and intuitive, I bought the new version because I wanted the best start with my new USB turntable - lots of my favourite LPs never have been reissued as CDs. The new version sports an "Add to iTunes" button, most other changes seem to be improvements to existing functionality or helping "under the hood". I highly recommend Tagr for its simplicity of use and effectivity. Wish there was something as well-made and Mac-like for FLAC files as well!

tagr is a nice and very handy app to quickly tag your entire mp3 collection. It may not have all the intricacies of a scriptable app like mp3tag on Windows but it is very easy to use and you can start editing immediately. Plus the developer is very responsive and appreciates feedback!

This is a very useful utility if you deal with a large number of music files. Makes it easy to control tags, album art, track numbers, file names and so forth. There are some nice updates in the latest release, including hooks to iTunes and control of disc numbers. Much better than using iTunes for the same functions.

As a lover of Tag & Rename in the Windows Space, Tagr is the best and most functional I have found for OSX. Has simple functions, drag & drop. However, not laden with features, and missing some basic core functions like Search & Replace and Get Tags from FileName, however, for effective MP3/Mp$ tag renaming of large libraries (I have over 200,000 songs) Tagr comes the closest over other OSX options.

Tagr 4.0 it's just what I needed to keep my music organized. I find it really useful and easy to use. And with its new fixed Discogs feature, you can even tag albums that have no ID3 tag at all, just by searching the artist and the album and selecting the one you want from the large data collection from Discogs. I've tried other file tagging apps on OSX for 2 years now, but I must say that Tagr 4.0 is just the best, so it's worth paying $9.99 for it. I encourage everyone to give it a try if you're looking for a great audio tagging app software.

well, tagr is back. I've been looking high and low in its absence (well, not absence, but the discogs data fetching stopped working a while back due to changes in their api). so now it's back, design is somewhat smoother but most of all discogs integration works like a charm again, and was improved. I love it. titles, artists, cover,... so handy! and the renaming and capitalization options make this my one-stop solution for tagging my mp3s. close to tag & rename, although that one has a lot more functionality, but it's functionality i don't use anyway + it's not available for osx. so i'll stick to this!

I'm curious about the change from freeware to payware. What makes version 4.0.0 worth $10 over continuing to use version 3.1.2 for free, or using another free tag editor such as Tagger or MusicBrainz Picard? (This is a serious question, not a snarky or cynical comment.)

well, for one, the discogs data-fetching stopped working in 3.1.2 as far as i know? which was the most used feature here.

pricetag probably due to the fact that it's distributed through the apple store now, which has developers pay a nice fee.

Also, if you look at the new features presented above, there is quite a lot of things that have been added, most notably the custom file naming patterns in addition to Discogs working now again (apparently Discogs changed their APIs). This was an important feature missing for a long time and has been implemented nicely.

Tagr has worked great for me for some time, but suddenly the Discogs query no longer works. I get a dialog: Tagr could not query Discogs. Make sure you are connected to the Internet. There's a Show Details button. When clicked, says: Line 1: Document is empty There's no support page or contact info for the developer, so I don't know what to do. May try uninstalling, but without support, I don't know what if any accessory files were originally installed. I'm running OS 10.6, and haven't made any recent system changes

Needs better external hard drive support, but I somehow got it to work by force quitting. Lion 10.7.1 EHD: Western Digital 500GB. I just added a music folder, selected some songs, changed the info and clicked "save to HD." It froze after that, but after 3-ish mins I quit, then hear the HD write something. I checked the songs with iTunes 10.5 and confirmed a change of ID tag. Request: option to view more info that is viewable in iTunes. Ability to submit a list of song names that will pick out those names to change tag. Use user-given databases to automatically fix tags. (in my case, vgmdb.net) Ability to organize track and disc numbers. (in the tags) Thanks for this wonderful software, I hope you will be successuful! Perhaps it will work with an EHD on snow leopard?

Correction: Only a few songs were changed. Organization of track names not very accurate. "file name" and "track name" are confusing to differentiate from. Track numbers should also be sorted by disc number, if possible.

I couldn't find the promised integration with discogs.com which allows the user to search for album information and artwork and apply it to the songs. I did find an option "search on Amazon" for finding cover art. If Tagr is or would be able in the future to extract data from Discogs then that would be really useful.
