Many PC users seem to always have the some sort of problems with iTunes and sometimes even owners of Macs will encounter these same difficulties. One of the biggest problems with iTunes is it doesn’t allow users to easily find iTunes album artwork that is missing from their music libraries. This can be extremely frustrating when you see iPod commercials displaying iPods all the time full of album artwork and yours is full of blanks. I think iTunes purposely makes it difficult to find album artwork so people will buy more songs from the iTunes store instead of downloading them. Fortunately there is a way to find iTunes album artwork for music that you have not purchased from the iTunes store album artwork for itunes.
There is a program called Tidysongs that can actually find missing iTunes album artwork for you with a click of a button, and that’s not all. If you have songs in your library that are missing names all together or are just mislabeled, or even duplicates, Tidy can automatically fix all of the information without any hassle. In the past most people would just manually rename their songs and albums by clicking edit on each individual song and typing in the correct information. This can be an extremely tedious and time consuming task, especially for people with rather large music collections. But the one thing that people can’t do manually is find album artwork and fully complete their iTunes collection. Luckily Tidysongs has the capability of matching all of your songs with the appropriate album art almost instantly.
If you are wondering how the Tidysongs software actually does this, it’s really not that hard to understand. Basically the Tidysongs companion scans the first couple seconds of each song you select and than matches it with it’s corresponding album artwork. The only requirement for the user is having a decent computer and an internet connection. I picked up Tidysongs about 3 months ago and now I just love flipping through all of my album covers on my iPod touch without having to look at any annoying blank ones anymore.
