      "Great Features - Unexpected Side-effects"

      November 13, 2012   |   By srogers4_dotmac

      Version: PowerTunes 1.2.3

      Pros

      Does exactly what it says in terms of taking control of your iTunes Library and allowing you to split up a large unwieldy library into multiple libraries.

      Cons

      Once upon a time, iTunes used to be just about music. Now it's the Grand Central Station of syncing all sorts of data across multiple devices. After a pass through PowerTunes, I found some dead tracks and moved some seldom-used tracks into a secondary library. Organization - yea! But then my top-level preferences for iPhone and iPad were lost (e.g. sync wirelessly with this device). Not a big deal - re-checked. Then I get a warning from my iPad that it thinks it was sync'd from a different account - not good. iTunes became completely confused about the sync state and I had to delete all music from the iPad and re-sync to get it straightened out.

      PowerTunes delivers on it's promises to get control of your iTunes library. Unfortunately, there's just so much more jammed into iTunes now that many things can go wrong.

      Summary

      Enjoy cleaning up your music tracks - watch out for subsequent sync horrors. Make sure your devices and your iTunes Library are backed up.
