My review pertains to TunesArt 1.2.2- which can still be obtained here . It is free- affords the best Lyrics down loader (most accurate), ITunes control, Deskwork Album Art of all the apps I've tried- including the more popular. I've tried them all- CoverSutra, GimmeSomeTunes, TunesLyrics, GetLyrica, MenuTunes. However, according to the App Store- the newer versions have lost a lot of functionality. 1.2.2 still works fine on Lion. Incredibly stable. I would email the developer and offer to pay $5- a great bargain for this version!

Great app ! Looked for simular app a long time and tried many alternatives. This one' the best, has the most options and is the most stable of them all.
I'm always willing to pay for a good app, by the way. Think a developer has a right to get something fiot his effotrt, especially when it's good software !
For those who don't want to pay there are al lot free alternatives.

I just switched from Synergy as it's become clear that it will never again be a viable solution. Off topic, but, anyway.

I don't use lyrics, so I have not tested that feature. But everything else I've tried works very well. It has been a good switch for me and I'm quite happy.

In the next update I hope the developer will add the option of autoadd the lyrics from LyricWiki, instead of having to do it manually!

This is a review of version 1.2.1. I use Lion, and I find the free version (a link to download is provided further down this page)- is fantastic. I don't use it to pull album art. However, it is great for finding lyrics. Much better than my other apps- such as TuneLyrics and Lyrica. It also can be used to do a google search, or paste the lyrics into the track. Indispensable in this version for Lyrics. I also use it for putting album art on the desktop. From the reviews- the newer version may not have the same functionality. My two cents. My ratings are for V. 1.2.1.

Not only does it appear to no longer be free, but according to the App Store, the $4.99 price is only a discounted price until Aug 14! Wow, how utterly disappointing.

Thanks for your link. I’m highly interested in TunesArt but I’m also very sad, that so many developers refuse to offer a trial version of their software anymore. Buy or die seems to be the current way.

The developer kind of pulled the rug out from underneath PPC users. 1.2.1 was a UB. 1.2.2 retained Leopard support but went Intel only without any mention in the "What's New" section.

The nasty part though is as far as I can tell, the download for 1.2.1 has been pulled from their website.

I had accidently thrown away the old version, but was fortunate to find a 1.2.1 download on another site.

Like this app in combination with MenuTunes. IMO, it does not do a good job of keyboard integration. And, it does not do a good job of track display changes (I use MenuTunes for the above). However, I do like the LyricWiki and album cover integration. As well as the access to playlists.

Great great application!

If in future there will be 3 more shortcuts (like "search directly an artist", "track" and "album") it will be really perfect!

Actually, Last.fm got a few troubles on sunday, and maybe your problem is related to that fact ? (one of their servers was down). I got same problem, but now everything is OK. Could you confirm ?

The best way is to delete TunesArt preferences.
Close TunesArt. Then go to to your user's "library" folder, then "Preferences" folder and look for the file "com.jib.TunesArt.plist" and delete it. Restart TunesArt.

Just logged into Last.fm (in web browser) and I seem to be missing quite a bit of recently played music. TunesArt doesn't seem to be scrobbling correctly... Or should I say it's scrobbling sporadically.

I went to the Last.fm tab in preferences, disabled scrobbling and then re-enabled it and TunesArt couldn't seem to connect to Last.fm. Could the last iTunes update (9.1) have affected scrobbling? Will have to use the real Last.fm app for now until this gets resolved.

Still a great app, especially for free!

I love this tool! Thanks for writing this cool app and make it free!

One problem I found during the few days of trying this: "Automatically Save Downloaded Lyrics in Current Track" option doesn't seem to work.

The app did fetch the lyrics and found them (I had the lyrics window open). However, when I played the same same song next time, it would still try to fetch the lyrics again. I manually clicked on "Save into Track" didn't help. I selected "Get Info" from iTunes, and no content in the "Lyrics" tab.

I am using iTunes 9.0.2, SL (10.6.2).

Hi,

Ratting and its shortcut doesn't work for me on 10.6.2. TunesArt cannot actually change the rate of songs in iTunes 9.0.2. Any idea?

Hi. I've got 10.6.2 and iTunes 9.023 and it works fine.

Can you change rating with TunesArt menu or same problem ? In addition, can you change rating by clicking on the stars under the desktop corver art ? Did you try to change your keyboard shortcut for rating (for example, I use Alt+Cmd+Up_arrow-)

I would be most grateful if someone would explain to me how to get this application to work.
I downloaded and installed it in my Application folder, but double-clicking on its icon does nothing whatsoever. It does not open, or do anything at all. In iTunes I do not see any evidence of its existence anywhere. I have some other art-finding applications which all work fine, so I am mystified as to why TunesArt does not. Particularly as others are giving it great reviews. I am running Mac OSX 10.5.8 on a 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo iMac G5. Thanks for any suggestions.
