"WILL DESTROY WMA WITHOUT WARNING !!!"

February 21, 2009  |  By brians6460

 |  Version: FixTunes 1.3

Pros

None for MWA users! The one star is only techincal due to no option for ZERO stars.

Cons

Absolutely no support at all. The product will take in WMA and treat as if MP3. These are different formats entirely. WOuld be like opening a Word doc file in Excel. Then will embed Mp3 unique characters into your WMA, rendering it unreadable.

"FixTunes Does Not Work!!!"

February 11, 2009  |  By Temptation!!

 |  Version: FixTunes 1.3

Pros

N/A For Every One Song It Does Fix It Will Mess Up Two.

Cons

It only intended to fixes MP3 Songs. It didn't skip my WMA songs, but instead rendered them unplayable.

Summary

The Software Does NOT Work!!!

Do Not Use FixTunes. This Software Will Mess Up Your Songs In A Big Way. All Of My MP3 Songs Are Now Mixed Up And Tag Wrong. All Of My WMA Songs Are Unplayable Now. All This Was Done With FixTunes. If Someone From The FixTunes Was Here Now I Would Kick There Ass. Its All About The Money.

My guess is that it tried to use MP3 tagging on a WMA file song rendering the file unreadable. I have emailed FixTunes but they will not respond. I lost over 4,000 songs and the ones that do work are missed tagged now. All my tags were correct before I just wanted the album art. More then 7 years of work lost.

The Software Does NOT Work!!!

"Don't buy this product"

December 20, 2008  |  By dougkeane

 |  Version: FixTunes 1.3

Pros

There is nothing good to say about it. It cannot identify song titles and artists, so it is really worthless.

Cons

THis product is not free!!!!! They get you to pay after dong a few lookups. But not enough to realize that it does not recgonise most songs. It will often attempt to overwrite corect information. It simply does not do what it claims.

Summary

Do not buy this piece of garbage!!

"Customer relations non-existent"

October 13, 2008  |  By rongale

 |  Version: FixTunes 1.3

Pros

Worked some of the time

Cons

My main objection is that they entered my computer and disabled the product I bought and paid for. They offer a free upgrade but the upgrade doesn't do what I want to do. They say everyone must upgrade whether they want to or not.

Summary

They have no regard for their customers.

"Nice idea, needs some additional work. (v5.32 Mac)"

September 28, 2008  |  By navywings

 |  Version: FixTunes 1.3

Pros

Good configurable options. Small, lightweight GUI.

Cons

Support, crashes, unable to resize window.

Summary

I recently purchased Fixtunes for iTunes and started processing my
library of about 5,000 songs. While Fixtunes does have some nice
features and configurable options, I don't believe it's ready for
"prime time" on OS X 10.5 at least. Here are some noted drawbacks:

1. Operation. Has been iffy at best. I've had quite a few crashes and
freezes. My system is relatively "clean" and my MBP is only a few
weeks old. It uses a proprietary server to compare the updates to and
operation is slower than I would have expected. It takes almost a
second per song and with 5000 songs, it's not just a quick process
even if it doesn't crash. I have fiber to my house and run sustained
D/L speeds of about 4MB/sec to my 2.4Ghz, 4GB ram MBP. I know the slowness is not an issue on my end.

2. Support. You'd think purchasing the program would give you access to a different level of support, not. It seems the "support" system is via a user forum. I tried to register in the forum and got repeated "database" errors. Those kinds of errors are a backend issue and not a client problem. So not being able to even register to post a question about my problem, I was left to use their "billing issue only" web contact to tell them my forum and product issues. They say there's a 24 hour turnaround time. The clock is ticking and I'll update tomorrow as to how true that claim is.

As it stands right now, it's not worth $25 without some bug fixes and
dedicated support for users who purchase the program. Another issue is the trial. The trial only works for 50 songs and unfortunately that's not long enough to see technical issues such as frequent crashes. In addition, the site shows version 5.32 for download for Mac. when you run it and click on "About" it shows version 5.31. Indicative of poor code quality assurance. For that to get out the door without being caught is very sloppy.
