Back for first rev.
I'm still not happy with it. It may seem simple but is not.
I tested one only album (Aloe Blacc - Lift Your Spirit) with this 1.1.0 rev. and nothing was really more accurate.

The drop folder doesn't work, i had to drop files instead (so why asking for folder drag and drop?).
4 songs of 11 had wrong covers, plus different mistakes on tags.
Still no possibility to select tags I want to apply, I do have to apply all or none. Isn't that a bit silly? And still no possibility to change tags…

A lot of tags are missing (compared to iTunes tags), and i cannot add any.

How could I describe this piece of software? As simple as a freebie.
At least, when you don't pay, you don't have to cry…

OK, the good part is the dev is consistent.
I still have the covers crap in my Application support folder: 18 covers for 11 songs (only 3 different covers with many different sizes). I love to waste my time not applying wrong tags and covers, quit, then find cover craps to trash!

I really don't get the purpose of this rev. but hey, if it takes that long to change minor bugs, how long for real improvements?

Still waiting for a serious revision…
- Let us choose the tags we want to apply (radio button?)
- Let us modify tags and covers (i.e. copy/paste from other songs)
- Add tags (the same iTunes has, since it works with it)
- Don't keep all those covers after a quit!
- Don't open your webpage at first launch - I don't want to buy the app, it's already bought! Damn.

It screwed up my iTunes Music Library - dumped covers that were accurate, invented covers where accurate ones existed and so on. A Total mess. I got back to the sad folks at Wondershare within in 12 hours of buying it to ask for a refund. Got this gibberish in reply.
For the mentioned situation, it mainly because the song may not be in the music library. We will contact GraceNote to check if there is anything else we can do for you. Currently, please edit the song information manually.

To make the inconvenience, if you want to exchange to other product,we will exchange it for you as well. Please refer to other products on our website: http://www.wondershare.com/#340

Please feel free to contact us if there is anything else we can do for you. We’ll be more than happy to help.

Have a nice day!

Best Regards

By not refunding the purchase price they are in breach of Australian Consumer Law.

Australian Consumer Law (ACL 2010)
18 Misleading or deceptive conduct

20 Unconscionable conduct within the meaning of the unwritten law
(1) A person must not, in trade or commerce, engage in conduct that is unconscionable, within the meaning of the unwritten law from time to time.

This is why I now have a policy oF buying only from the App store - they give you a refund without question for such disappointment with an app.

This is an expensive app for what it does and you have a right to expect it to work according to the advertising on the site. It doesn't - so the advertising is misleading.

In other words, don't deal with these clowns. they set out to mislead and deceive and will not refund your purchase price if the app does not meet your needs as you have been lead to believe it will on their site.

You have been warned. they are crooks.

Take it all back. Suddenly Wondershare decided to do the ethical thing and did. They have undertaken to refund the cost. So again, MacUpdate gets another big tick for letting customers relate their one-to-one experiences with apps they purchase. It lets an organisation know that they are exposed to the world when they sell apps and that they will not get too many chances to operate ethically and sell competent aaplications that do what they say they will do "on the box."

OK, this is the very first version, so it can't be perfect.

I just bought it today and tried it on some of my music out of iTunes, before messing up anything with a long-time stored music collection.

3 identified albums: Nina from Kellylee Evans; Arabia- The Essential Album (compilation); Big Blue Ball (a Real World compilation).
I do have right tags and covers for all of them.
You might tell me these albums aren't that easy but - hey - i don't need to pay for a piece of software that only identifies me the latest Miley Cyrus album!

Without any surprise, it goes to Gracenote DB, like many other music solutions. And i must say, authors and titles are pretty accurate. This is the good.

Very useful for a start.

The bad is…
- A folder "might" be an album.
The compilations are just ignored. The app finds references for each song, ignoring everything the whole stuff: the finders sorting, the existing tags…
For each song, it finds any album, even other compilations, but NEVER the actual compilation i do own. This makes different album tags, different dates, different covers… A real mess.
Infos may be accurate but these are not the infos i need.
- Different covers: now it's about anything that might seem to be a cover. Singer pictures, flyers, ads from the singer or someone who's supposed to be the singer, any format, any size. Let's say you always get an image, not a cover. Unusable.
- So you may want to change, and you can (please get that back to the good).
But… You can only change… Song per song: you just can't select multiple songs and change! Speaking of wasting time.

For your record, i just closed the software without changing anything. Tests sometimes saves your day.

- The baddest is still to come.
TidyMyMusic stores every cover into /Library/Application Support/TidyMyMusic/Artwork.
My little test got me exactly 169 covers! This means every single pictures and alternatives are permanently downloaded. Even for the Real World compilation - only one song was not tagged from the album - i got different pictures for each song, different pictures for the same album cover! Please dev, can you just download ONE picture when only one is needed?
Seriously, i got 111.5 MB of useless pictures permanently hidden on my Mac for 3 little albums (53 songs)…
Let me guess, if i try for all my iTunes songs (16,000+ songs): i'm gonna buy another storage disk for the pictures!

Sorry to be that sarcastic, but i can't use an application that is only accurate for authors and song titles.
- Folders sometimes indicates files are from one only action, let's say album. Why isn't it possible to tell the app?
- Existing tags might be a good start, too: let users tell the app!
- When getting a cover, please get a real cover not anything that covers.
- Please indicate the pictures sizes: i found pictures that were almost 2 MB. Not everybody want to get that size to store on their iDevices.
- When the job is done and everything is stored, please add a preference to DELETE all UNUSED downloaded pictures!

Now, i'm patiently waiting: i may change my mind on the next release if these things change. Hope to see it very soon!
