"Slow and painfull death for your music files"

March 28, 2012  |  By thappychuk

 |  Version: Rinse 1.83

Pros

More people than you look stupid for trying this garbageware. You DO get to spend lots of quality time with your computer fixing the frozen app every 80 songs or so, rebooting, fixing corrupted files after system crashes etc.

Cons

Spyware laden bug riddled crapware... all at a premium price!

Summary

Only nuke and pave will remove from your systems and you'll be left with scrambled tags for your effort. The best part about my full system backup BEFORE installing this tagshredder was not the full restore of my untouched library but the full removal of any trace of this brutal app.

"Screw this piece of crap"

January 01, 2012  |  By mrcsg3

 |  Version: Rinse 1.83

Pros

There are no pros... to hell with this garbage

Cons

I tried to uninstall and couldn't uninstall it. The toolbar wouldn't leave itunes. I had to complete uninstall of itunes and clean up all registry traces to finally get rid of it.

Summary

Piece of crap. Burn in hell. If i could give it zero rating i would.
It's from realnetworks... why the hell was i surprised.

"Google Search results "ballot stuffing" look suspicious"

November 28, 2011  |  By Redux032

 |  Version: Rinse 1.83

Pros

None that I can see

Cons

No positive reviews that I trust or appear independent.

Summary

I initially considered downloading this, based on Google search results where I saw a large number of websites with positive reviews of the product. Digging a little further, all these referrer sites seem to consist of just a few pages each, and all have great reviews of the product, complete with screen shots, download links, sidebar ads for Rinse...suddenly it begins to look like a product with no substance, marketed in a very amateurish way. Shame on Real Audio, if they even have a conscience any more.

"What were they thinking?"

September 28, 2011  |  By chrisg61

 |  Version: Rinse 1.83

Pros

trialware? hmmm, I trust cnet with all my computers - I thought at least someone at cnet looked at what was being uploaded to the sight. This product allows the user to do what Itunes already does but has a clean warm fuzzy look.

Cons

Doesn't deserve one star! This software is redundant, possibly and hopefully not so inoccuos - errr, but why all the tracking cookies?

Summary

Trial Ware? PLEASE!! This product allows the user to do what ITunes already does, so why should I use it? The pros, it downloads fine, it's software, it uses code, has a very cool icon, looks like it would be a great to ITunes users. It only delivers a cool icon unless you pay $40 bucks to try it.

This software is redundant. Comes with lots of tracking cookies that AVG Spyware screams about while in use and during installation, one huge waste of hardware space, trial ware doesn't allow you to try it, costs $40 bucks, redundant, looks cool but please don't waste your time. I'm no expert here, but I feel this is a Real Player program to track what users are playing on ITunes! This is spyware packaged as a utility! Shameless scam by Real Player.

Nice Icon - That's it! Oh, the nice icon will cost you $40 bucks, complete waste of time, resources and who got paid to code this? Hmmmmmm! It's one thing for a company to go to war against another, but to track individuals computers and listening habits is the worst form of consumer abuse. Come on real player, get a grip! Do your own homework! I'm all for competition, but not this way! Please, don't try to fool me, thank you Real!

"Castrated Trial Version, pay $39.99 to see if it works?"

August 24, 2011  |  By jdog428

 |  Version: Rinse 1.83

Pros

Clever idea
Found 890 duplicates in my iTunes library
Small download
Might possibly be user friendly (Can't tell because this is a castrated trial version)

Cons

Castrated trial version
$39.99 for the full program and you can't even preview it???

Summary

What a colossal waste of time. Why even bother uploading software to this site if it's going to be so limited that you can't even try it to see if you'd be willing to pay $40 for the software. Sure, it'll find dupes, add artwork, etc. Fantastic, so does iTunes and it's a free download. Actually removing all the dupes from my library? That MIGHT be worth a few bucks to me, but $40 and I can't even try it first??? Sorry, for that kind of money I'll go ahead and do it myself, the long way.
