Easily manage all of your Napster, Gnutella, Newsgroup downloads and CD Rips. Full VBR support, automatic file move and rename, and automatically shows you your album covers as you scroll your music list. File AutoMove and file AutoRename will automatically move and/or rename your mp3 files using the Artist, Album, Title, Category information available in the database.
What's new in this version: Version 0.683 fixes a minor problem with scanning a file that included full date in the filename.

"Outdated and flawed program"
Version: MP3 Boss 0.683
It has a promising feature list, to bad it doesn't live up to them.
- Bad designed and outdated interface
- Slow file scanning. Over 3 minutes for 276 songs.
- Did not recognize file deletions. Only fix was to clean the database and scan the directory again.
The first version of this program was released in 1999 and this is showing in every part. Basic user interface functions that you are used to in modern programs do not work, for example mousewheel does not work in all screens and sorting columns by clicking them is not supported.
The last release was v0.683 in May 2010, over one year ago. It looks like support for this program is fading.
The feature list is great, but some simple fixes won't rescue this program. To make it usable it would require a rewrite from scratch.
