Editors' Review


TuneUp scans your music library in seconds, but its free version is limited and doesn't seem fully operational. If you don't want to put in the work, yourself, to get all of your track information, then it's probably worth the fee, if the program actually worked. There are some pesky browser toolbars and add-ons hiding in the installation, as well. That's pretty annoying for a program that asks you to pay for it.

This program scans your music library and then fills in the gaps of information in your files. It's supposed to cross-reference track information with its large server of files to fill in the artist, album, genre, and other information your file might not already have. The program scanned 2,000 tracks in about six minutes for us, which is a decent speed by most standards. After scanning, TuneUp grades your library by listing how many files require no work and how many need to be updated. It also lets you drop files you want to update by using its Drag n' Drop tab. However, the drag and drop feature didn't work for us. We managed to drag one of our files in and the program started analyzing it, but it failed to display anything useful. It only displayed the info. about how to drag and drop files. In addition, the trial version of the program limits you to fixing 50 files before asking you to pay up; for us this also didn't work, as we couldn't really fix anything. Even if you don't pay, the program still hounds you to register every time you open it.

TuneUp could save you plenty of time fixing the metadata of all of your downloaded tracks, but it doesn't seem to let you do much without subscribing. So we can't really recommend this program, as its trial version only identifies files that need fixing, and nothing else. This looks like a problem developers should really address in this version.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of TuneUp

Not sure there are any.


A horrible algorithm that will hopelessly hose your iTunes library. Not straightforward and recovery is not straightforward.


I rarely every leave a one-star rating, but it is appropriate in this case. I purchased the Mac version of TuneUp via Two-Dollar Tuesday so I was not able to leave a review in the Apple Appstore. I expect this was intentional as this app is terrible. It has so hopelessly hosed my iTunes that I still have to find missing files and correct bad metadata nearly every time I play music. How do I know TuneUp created the mess? Because each hosed file is tagged with "Cleaned up by TuneUp". For example, it will take your "various artists" discs and break them up into individual album files, possible creating a duplicate that will be removed. It has a strong tendency to mistag these files. That is just one example of TuneUps systemic stupidity. I strongly suggest you avoid this program.
