TuneUp, a popular iTunes plugin for Windows, arrives today for Apple users just in time for the holidays. Now any iTunes user can automatically fix their mislabeled song information and find missing cover art without having to leave the familiar iTunes interface. By providing correct song information and offering a complementary suite of features, TuneUp empowers users to get the most out of their music collections.

"TuneUp for Mac is a major step toward our goal of delivering the ultimate user experience for all music lovers," says Gabriel Adiv, CEO and founder of TuneUp. "Based on the overwhelmingly positive response we've received from the iTunes community, we're now working hard to expand the program to other major media players."

The product's foundation is a powerful cleaning function that takes an "audio fingerprint" of mislabeled tracks in a user's library, and automatically fills in the missing information using Gracenote(R)'s Global Media Database of more than 90 million songs. No more Track_01s, Unknown Artists or Beatles vs. TheBeatles vs. Beatles,The. Since launch, TuneUp has "cleaned" over 25 million such tracks.

In addition to correcting track information, TuneUp delivers missing cover art for a user's collection, vastly improving the iTunes/iPhone/iPod "cover flow" navigation experience. Additionally, the unique design as a "plug-in" makes all of its features possible within a sidebar that complements iTunes.

Once a user's library has been cleaned, TuneUp provides valuable contextual content. It knowingly displays upcoming local concerts for every artist in a collection, and fetches related YouTube videos, Google news and Wikipedia bios related to any playing track. Best of all, it's done by design, without asking users to fill out extra forms or create lists of favorite artists and albums from scratch.


Pricing and Availability:
For a limited time, a full-featured, free version of TuneUp is available with 500 "cleans" and 50 cover art "finds". "TuneUp Gold" provides unlimited cleans and cover art and can be purchased for a one-time fee of $19.95 (USD) or for an annual subscription of $11.95 (USD). The company plans to expand support to other major media players such as Windows Media Player and AOL's Winamp in 2009.

I have tried the software. It makes iTunes very sluggish and honestly, I do not know what they do with the data (TuneUp)... PROBLEM: every time you start iTunes, the TuneUp starts up as well... and that makes it a very, very long while until iTunes is there... PROBLEM 2: it is not easy to uninstall, you need a special program. VERY BAD!
