TuneUp iTunes Library Cleaner Relaunches by Going Backwards. Good.

I’d been a fan of TuneUp, an iTunes add-on that helped tame my 370 GB music library by finding duplicates, repairing tags and finding lost album artwork.  I say “helped” because I haven’t used it in a while due to the fact that the latest iteration of the software, well, sucked.

Part of the issue had to do with the founder of the company bailing, leaving TuneUp to what appeared to have been a bunch of rookies.  The resulting iteration of TuneUp (v3.0, if you’re counting) was horrible, clunky, prone to crashing and loved to report false errors.  However, that guy–his name is Gabe Adiv–has repurchased the rights to TuneUp and has relaunched it–by dialing it back a version.

I think that’s good news–and I hope TuneUp makes some proper upgrades in the near future.

    I have never been able to get that software to work. The fact it’s made with adobe air sends off warning signs.
