Editors' Review

+

Leawo's Tunes Cleaner searches your iTunes library for duplicates, missing album art and song tags, and other issues, and automatically fixes it all without requiring an iTunes Store account. With a few clicks, it can tidy up the largest iTunes library, but it also works with folders outside of iTunes, though it doesn't work as a general music library cleaner: you must have iTunes 10 or better installed. Leawo Tunes Cleaner does work with Windows 8, though, as well as XP, Vista, and Windows 7; both 32-bit and 64-bit versions. It's not free, but the unregistered version is free to try.

Leawo Tunes Cleaner's plain, dialog-style start screen offers three choices: Start to Clean iTunes, Open Music File, and Load Saved Results. This tool can resume interrupted cleaning jobs, and you can save and resume unfinished jobs, too. But we were starting with a raw and untidy iTunes library of some 700 songs--small by iTunes standards, though large enough to contain plenty of duplicates. Better yet, we'd never signed in to the Apple Store, so our library had no album art or metadata. Leawo Tunes Cleaner's initial scan identified and tallied all our files lacking Album Art, Album, or Artist. We pressed "Start" to Clean iTunes, and immediately the main window started filling with album art, but not from the Apple Store. The menu also opens the Preferences for setting how missing data and duplicates are handled. After Leawo Tunes Cleaner had fixed our metadata, it scored our library and recommended we clean it more thoroughly. The program listed some files we'd dubbed from LP records as Unknown Artist and Album, but it got pretty much everything else. When our library was spiffy enough, Leawo Tunes Cleaner had fixed 679 problems.

Love it or hate it, Apple's iTunes is hard to get away from. If you've given up trying to keep basic order to your iTunes library, it certainly doesn't cost anything to see if Leawo Tunes Cleaner can do it for you!

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Leawo Tunes Cleaner 1.0.

"Didn't remove a single duplicate. Support is in CHINA!!"

December 01, 2014  |  By sgcannon

 |  Version: Leawo Tunes Cleaner 2.1.1.1

Pros

interface looks nice

Cons

Didn't remove a single duplicate.

Tech support options: 1. Call China 2. Hope they respond to email 3. Contact via Skype. Unfortunately, they have to accept your contact request which they haven't done.

Waste of my time and $30. Go with a company that provides tech support!

"Worked fine for me."

February 24, 2014  |  By landonqsing2013

 |  Version: Leawo Tunes Cleaner 2.1

Pros

Eliminated a couple of duplicates and added in lots of missing artwork.

Cons

1) why it finds and incorporates missing artwork for some songs/album tracks that already have it as far as I can see, but I'd guess that's somehow related to how itunes tags tracks rather than anything else?

2) why it doesn't find missing artwork for rather well known bands/artists, but here I'd guess that's just a function of a growing database?

Thanks

"works to my itunes and MP4 music libraries"

February 09, 2014  |  By Ivy0403

 |  Version: Leawo Tunes Cleaner 2.1

Pros

i tried to use this cleaner to clean my iTunes library and music collections on my MP4 player, and found:
1. really easy to use, no difficulty for even novices,
2. the program works fast,
3. duplicates removed, album and artwork fixed,

Cons

but there are also some shortcomings, including:
1. the program seems not to be that stable. in my first cleaning of my itunes library, it got stuck, cause so many music files? i've no idea.
2. there're still some music files unfixed, especially artwork, and some music files are reported to be unkown. so i think they need to improve its backgroud database.
3. the price is a little bit expensive for 1-year code.

Summary

in all, i do think this program helps me a lot in cleaning up my messy music libraries, but needs more work to be perfect. the company needs do more work to take care of users' experience in both program and price.

"RUns but never finishes"

January 08, 2014  |  By s0ckd0l8g3r

 |  Version: Leawo Tunes Cleaner 2.1

Pros

All the features one would want in maintaining iTunes library.
-Duplicates detection/removal
-Art work fixes
-Album fixes

Cons

Deep scan runs but never completes. Support is either non-responsive or non-existent. One run was over 60 hours before it stopped. Has restart mode but unable to get it to restart.

Summary

Purchased current version (2.1.1.0) on Dec 30 and have been trying to get one complete scan ever since. Program runs for hours and terminates. On restart, it saying it was interrupted and asks if you would like to continue. A "yes" answer never does anything and I end up restarting from beginning. Repeated emails to the support email provided on the website with attached documentation of the problem are NEVER answered.

My current recommendation is to not buy this product. I will update this review if things change.

Updated on Jan 31, 2014

It has been a month now and I still have not received a response from Leawo to the technical issues I sent to them after using this program. Since then I have discovered that many of the files removed from my iTunes library that were identified as duplicates were not. I've had to spend a lot of time sorting out the mess created by Tunes Cleaner.

Like me, you may elect to go ahead and purchase this product after reading that should give you cause for concern. If you then you cannot say you didn't know. I ignored the warnings and the consequences are on me. Caveat emptor!!!

"powerful than iTunes, nice tool"

January 06, 2014  |  By ivanman999

 |  Version: Leawo Tunes Cleaner 2.1

Pros

1. Very quick and easy to use.
2. Finds artworks for most of my songs.
3. Combined the duplicates removing and song info completing into one.
4. Manual editing is quite good. I can fix those songs that couldn't be fixed by the program.

Cons

Needs perfection in recognizing songs and perfecting song tags. Some songs couldn't be fixed.

Summary

Fixed 5452 Songs,4268 problems, still 449 problems to fix (including some artwork problems). Got rid of the duplicates. Exactly what i'm looking for.

"Does not work! Support is non-existent!@"

January 05, 2014  |  By s0ckd0l8g3r

 |  Version: Leawo Tunes Cleaner 2.0

Pros

Lots of favorable reviews on previous version(s). Advertised to do everything I need done in my iTunes library (remove dups, get atrwork, get album, etc.)

Cons

Program to date as not run to completion on any function. It appears to scan but terminates after several hours every time. Repeated attempts to contact Leawo Support has produced zero response.

Summary

I am not a newbie to computers and software. I am an experienced tech/programmer (+30 yrs--have my own small business in this field) with a deep background in desktop/network/server support.

After reading the reviews re Tune Cleaner and ignoring the bad ones I purchased this software. I have attempted to run it numerous times. It comes up fine and appears to be scanning my iTunes library. However, it runs for hours (over 60 at one point) and terminates with "...interrupted unexpectedly. Would you like to continue...?" It never finishes any scan (dups, clean-up, etc.) I have sent Leawo support several emails with attached documentation. Their message says that response should be expected within 48 hours. It has been more that 168 hrs (a week) and their response to this point has been ... crickets. No acknowledgement, follow-up, nothing.

My recommendation at this point is DO NOT PURCHASE this product. If the problem is resolved I will update this review.
