"Very good at what it does"

February 16, 2014  |  By mpias

 |  Version: MPFreaker 1.9.4

Pros

Gets the Artwork and Lyrics and never damages my library.
The demo version is good enough to give you a good idea of how well it will work for you.

Cons

Occasionally misses some of the more obscure stuff.

Summary

Overall MPFreaker is a reliable and safe program. I've used some others that have really done bizarre things like wrong lyrics, unrelated album art, etc. MPFreaker may leave some items blank, but it errs on side of caution and never leaves me wondering "How the heck did that happen?"

I've been using it for years without incident and am comfortable recommending it to anyone. I know how important music libraries are.

Well worth the $10.

"Great product for album tracks"

October 27, 2009  |  By thebeefs

 |  Version: MPFreaker 1.8.4

Pros

I have purchased iTunes artwork/organization software before that have seriously screwed up many tracks. This one is highly customizable and the user-interface is easy to use.

Cons

I have a lot of rare tracks and live recordings which it does not have in the database and therefore cannot identify. It just leaves these tracks alone and you can do it manually if you choose.

Summary

Download the trial to make sure it works with your system. If it does, it's well worth the $20 to have an organized, complete iTunes library.

"Of marginal utility"

December 08, 2008  |  By italtrav

 |  Version: MPFreaker 1.8

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
The trial version lets you modify 3 tracks. It took 15 tries to find 3 tracks that it could modify. In only one case did it find album artwork (all tracks I tried lacked artwork, my primary interest). In another case it added lyrics (to Jingle Bells, no less!) and in another it found some incidental album info. But it couldn't find info on a bunch of commercial CDs, including issues by Diana Krall, Dave Brubeck or Alfred Brendel, all on major labels. So, for the moment, I'll keep my money.

"Long-time user"

January 26, 2008  |  By sohateme

 |  Version: MPFreaker 1.7.3

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I've tried most of the rest. This is the best. 1.7.3 is stable and every update has improved performance. Features are added judiciously. Lyric finding has been added.

It was worth $20 when I first bought. Now, with all the improvements, it's even more of a value.

"Astoundingly Good"

September 25, 2007  |  By wscody_dotmac

 |  Version: MPFreaker 1.7.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Compared to other alternatives, I believe this is best available.

It has an excellent, intuitive UI, fast operation without hogging the CPU and is pretty thorough and accurate. I would give it about a 90% hit rate in grabbing information.

The proof is in the putting. I plunked down the $20 shareware fee with no regrets.

"iTunes keeps crashing"

August 21, 2007  |  By chronicfathead

 |  Version: MPFreaker 1.7.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Ever since letting the software loose on my entire album, iTunes crashes every time I plug in my G3 ipod.

Using 7.3.2 iTunes with 3600 tracks. Worked fine on the select few I ran it through. I bought the software and selected a playlist or two. They all seemed OK, so I left it churning through my album while I went out. When it had finished, everything looked fine. I have just tried plugging my ipod in and iTunes crashed every time after 5-10 secs.

I have wiped my library files out and am currently importing a chunk at a time to see where the corruption has occurred.

I understand that if you xml file or mp3 tags become corrupted the same thing can happen.

"Not very useful"

July 16, 2006  |  By Central Scrutinizer--2008

 |  Version: MPFreaker 1.5

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I tried out 50 random tracks from my iTunes library. It ran, downloaded something as indicated by internet activity, and then just sat there. No visible way to preview the new info it downloaded. There is no way I'm going to trust an unknown app to overwrite my mp3 tags if I can't preview the info.

I'm a regular user of iEatBrainz, a freeware app that fetches mp3 tag data. It shows previews, lets me select from a variety of matches, and after I review the downloaded info, I can write it to iTunes tracks. Much more sensible than MPFreaker's faith-based method. iEatBrainz doesn't fetch as much data as 'Freaker purportedly does, which is why I tried Freaker. With a preview function and a search engine that worked, 'Freaker could be a viable alternative to iEatBrainz.

"Doesn't work properly"

September 29, 2005  |  By Warren McCormack

 |  Version: MPFreaker 1.3

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
This latest version doesn't work correctly. I have a lot of incorrect artwork now. The previous version seemed to function much better than this one. Shame...
