"If it works for me, it'll work for you."
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I'll be upfront; I have 149,648 music tracks in iTunes at the moment. (I'm one of *those* people.) I don't have the time or energy to go through one track at a time, or even an album at a time, and manage my music. Finding a program I can load my collection into is even a bit epic. So I use Jaikoz to do it for me. I can think of features that I would like, and the interface isn't the best, but it is the best program I've found for managing my music.
With one click, it is set up to label unlabeled tracks, delete any duplicates, add missing information, hunt down lyrics & album art, and generally make my collection shine. I use the log files to root out any corrupted music files for me to delete.
With so many music files from so many sources, you can guess it's like a minefield for a program to process. I'm pleased to report that Jaikoz handles most of my files fine, and when it chokes I've worked with the developer to fix the bug. And Paul makes new releases regularly.
So, in summary, Jaikoz isn't a perfect program, but it's best-in-class.
