If all your songs were bought from iTunes, your library is already in good shape. But if you’ve ever dabbled in downloads from other sources (remember the good old days of Napster?), you know what a mess digital files can be. Your best friend might be the master of mixtapes, but he somehow still hasn’t learned to give you properly tagged MP3 files. You can spend hours correcting stuff by hand, or let Tagalicious give it a go.
The app isn’t perfect—plenty of tags will still need some manual work. But for doing the majority of the heavy lifting, Tagalicious can be a huge help, letting you stop fiddling, and get back to listening to your iTunes treasures.
Tune up iTunes.
When you launch Tagalicious, it displays your iTunes library in an iTunes-like paned interface. On the left you can select from your existing playlists or a new one that Tagalicious creates called Untagged Music. Select some tracks in the middle pane, and Tagalicious will attempt to identify your music. Search results are on the right, with your existing tags displayed alongside the new data Tagalicious found. Click to highlight your desired tags, and the Send to iTunes button updates your iTunes library. In addition to Title, Artist, Album, and other data, Tagalicious can search out album art and lyrics for your songs.
The bottom line. Tagalicious can be slow on large libraries, but it can correct the bulk of metadata problems, plus find art and lyrics. Sounds good to us.
Mac OS 10.6.6 or later
Finds metadata and lyrics. Lets you pick and choose which tags to apply.
Like all automated metadata tools, it occasionally misses. Not much documentation.
