    "Mislabeled TONS (AKA Elton John ? Beastie Boys)"

    July 05, 2014   |   By oddtraveler

    Version: TuneUp 2.4.8

    Pros

    ummmm.... some of the mislabeling is so bad it's kinda funny?

    Cons

    - Mislabels music
    - changes the file names so once it's mislabeled you many never find it unless you go through all of your thousands of songs.
    - takes songs that came straight off the CD and wants to relabel them as parts of compilations.
    - tries to label different songs as the same track on a CD that you don't have the hard copy for, so BEWARE.
    - MISLABELS MUSIC

    Summary

    Truly, I should not have to use Shazam to find out what the song really is. Elton John's Benny and the Jets sounds nothing like Beastie Boys' No Sleep 'til Brooklyn. Ludacris does not sound like the chapter of a Danielle Steel novel. t.A.T.u's one major hit "All the Things She Said" is not obscure new age. Nate King Cole and Natalie Cole do not sound like Louis Armstrong. Bing Crosby never did any 40 minute hypnosis sessions to my knowledge. Neither did the Delfonics, Toby Keith, or David Cross. William Shatner does not sound like Andy Williams. Marvin Gaye does not sound like Roberta Flack. Cyne does not sound like Perry Como. The two songs on Trainspotting you wanted to tag as the same song have different artists, sounds, and about 6 minutes difference in length. And my brother wrote IDM music, it not sound classical Liszt, soft jazz for Andrew Oh, or Norwegian folk tales. Those are just the ones I'm aware of; I also deleted dozens of songs that I just gave up on after realizing they were wrong. Whatever runs this program, it runs it wrong. Given the fact that it was "correcting" it own clean up from previous versions - sometimes slightly in the more correct direction, others so far off that it's good I went through and found some favorite songs I'd "lost" because they were mislabeled back then, there's something inherently flawed in TuneUp. DON'T BUY IT, DON'T EVEN USE THE TRIAL - you will wind up looking for another program just to clean up the messes it made.

    "Tiffany From TuneUp Here"

    April 11, 2014   |   By tiffany_oliver

    Version: TuneUp 2.4.8

    Pros

    TuneUp is under new management!

    Cons

    Please do not download any 3.0 versions.

    Summary

    So sorry to hear that all of you have had so many issues. I wanted to hop in here to let all of you know that TuneUp is now under new ownership. The former owners (TuneUp Media) ceased operations back in February, but the product is now fully supported by the new owners. You can read more about this transition here: http://www.marketwired.com/press-release/industry-leading-tuneup-app-re-launched-under-new-ownership-1890785.htm

    For those of you that are still interested in using TuneUp, we strongly recommend that you revert back to version 2.4.8, which we believe to be TuneUp's strongest, most stable and most accurate version. For more information about how to do that, go here:
    http://support.tuneupmedia.com/hc/en-us/categories/200045018-Download-TuneUp-Version-2-4-8-

    For those of you interested in checking out TuneUp, please download the free trial here: http://www.tuneupmedia.com/download/

    Thanks for all of the support over the years. We plan on making TuneUp better and more reliable in the future. Please let us know if you have any questions or comments.

    "SOFTWARE HIJACKED? BEWARE of PIGGYBACKING OTHER APPS"

    March 14, 2014   |   By xazei

    Version: TuneUp Media 3.0.6

    Pros

    There are none.

    Cons

    Went to download printer driver software and TUNEUPMYMAC was the installation package that go loaded, not the Canon software clicked on.
    Installed to find GENIEO and TUNEUPMYMAC automatically scrounging through my computer.
    They have been out of business for 6 weeks ... suspicious that hackers have got ahold of defunct company's platform and are piggybacking onto other popular free downloads, like printer software.

    Summary

    JUST BE AWARE that TUNEUP, now defunct for 6 weeks, platform/software pirated and being piggybacked on free software downloads.

    "I bought it, yes. I'm a *******."

    February 15, 2014   |   By Dindilicious

    Version: TuneUp Media 3.0.6

    Pros

    It was ok before. Did what it said it would do. But veeeeerrrrry slowly.

    Cons

    Then they updated and restyled the thing. Made "Automagic" a default function. It became slower and less responsive. And now they shut down. After they got my money.

    Summary

    Had promise. It worked well at the start but slowly. Now they shut down. And my money is down the drain. I'll read ALL reviews before buying apps from now on.

    "They could not make this slower if they tried"

    February 02, 2014   |   By AgentBadgerUK

    Version: TuneUp Media 3.0.6

    Pros

    None so far as its taking hours to update track data on one album

    Cons

    Its just so slow, I got this as part of a package of software, if I had specifically bought this I would be fuming angry by now. Just take hours to update a fews track of information. I don't know what they have done but they need to fix if they plan to keep in business.

    Summary

    So slow, not worth the time of day, I got this software in a package deal so not so upset, still would have been nice if it worked. I would not pay money for this software on its own, would be very upset if I had.

    1/2 star as would have been nice if it worked.

    AVOID THIS SOFTWARE

    "Don't buy this software, it does not work at all."

    January 09, 2014   |   By sLimSumo

    Version: TuneUp Media 3.0.6

    Pros

    Can't think if any since it doesn't work.

    Cons

    Automatically starts "Automagic" and it' not possible to disable. Bought this app when 3.0 was released and have given them time to fix it but now, month later and nothing fixed I'm giving it up.

    Waste of money.

    Summary

    When i think about about it I get amazed how a simple app as this is so hard to accomplice. I think they made things a lot more complicated than necessary. Or maybe they just planned to take our money and never deliver any track data what so ever.

    Really disappointed in their lack of support and missing contact.

    "DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!!!"

    January 02, 2014   |   By john_bonham

    Version: TuneUp Media 3.0.6

    Pros

    um...
    well....
    uh...
    nadda

    Cons

    1) Terrible user experience
    2) Clicking on an album to see tracks will take 5-10 minutes
    3) Matching software is useless. You might as well do it manually
    4) It tales about 3-5 hours to process 5 albums
    5) If you play a song in iTunes, the product will flip out and show you things you do not care about
    6) CUSTOMER SERVICE AND TECH SUPPORt DO NOT EXIST!!!
    7) If you buy this product, you can kiss you $50 goodbye

    Summary

    Do not buy this product. It does not work. There is no one who can address your questions and if you ask for a refund, you will not get it. Try Rinse... IT works 100,000 faster than Tuneup and is has a 90% accuracy rate
