    "Confusing interface, Album info lookup doesn't work"

    March 27, 2005  |   By sbsyncro

    Version: TagScanner 4.9 build 496

    Pros

    Program seems very fast, flexble, and full-featured. Interesting GUI. Power-user capabilities. I tested it for about 20 minutes, downloaded the latest patch, and then decided it was more complex that what I was looking for.

    Cons

    Looks like a very steep learning curve, little or no on-screen help to explain the various buttons and options, and the album lookup feature does not seem to work properly. Even with perfectly clean ID3 tags it returned bizarre results like suggesting an Elton John album for a classic Animals song "CC Rider" (which to my knowledge, Elton never even covered.) ;-)

    If you have time to spare, and want maximum geek factor, this may be worth tinkering with (for example, if you like LINUX). IF you are looking for something you can get up and running with quickly to start cleansing your large library of MP3s you might want to look elsewhere.

    "Does exactly what it says on the tin."

    March 23, 2005  |   By fergusmacdonald

    Version: TagScanner 4.9 build 496

    Pros

    A no frills tag scanner, lets you edit multiple tags at once, or one by one. Great program for sorting your music collection - can handle thousands of mp3's at once!

    Lots of features - too many too list.

    Quite nice skin.

    Mulitple tag formats supported.

    Lots of info - can even put pictures with tags.

    This product does exactly what it says on the tin - has never crashed on me, and generally experienced very few problems with it.

    Cons

    A little hard to use at first - the different screens all appear similar but infact have very different functions.

    Some standard windows functions don't work on it - double clicking header doesn't maximise window. Can't access auto-hide start bar when on full screen - you have to minimise first or click start button.

    "Just what I needed!"

    February 25, 2005  |   By Tigerlizzan

    Version: TagScanner 4.9 build 496

    Pros

    This application is the only one I've tried that was easy to use and could do everything I wanted it to do. I wanted an application that would easily let me edit tags for music files, rename the files according to the new tag information, and create a list of the files, with any info I wanted. This application can do it all, and it's good looking and very easy and fast to use as well.

    Cons

    The only thing that I miss about this program is that I can't use every field when renaming files or creating a list. I had put some extra info about the music files under composer and I'm not able to use this to sort my files or put it in an excel spreadsheet. Having gone through 200+ files before noticing this, I have to go through them again and move this information.

    "Did What I Needed, Easy & Fast"

    January 28, 2005  |   By SkaFreak

    Version: TagScanner 4.9 build 496

    Pros

    I was looking for a program to mass edit mp3 id3 tags and TagScanner did it with no problems and fast. I havent used any of the other features but this program is easy to use, and has a great setup.

    Cons

    At first sight the program is a little confusing. After about 5 minutes of looking around though I found it very very easy to use.
