Editors' Review

Download.com staff

TagScanner allows you to perform individual and batch changes to ID3 tags on your music files with a few clicks. The application comes free of charge and offers advanced functionality at the expense of instant familiarity and usability.

Pros

Batch ID3 editing: With TagScanner you can edit the ID3 tag information of individual and multiple audio files, including the song name, artist, album, and genre. The software also offers the ability to rename the files based on ID3 information that you specify.

Cover art finder: TagScanner enables you to apply cover art to an entire album with a single click. You can import the album art yourself, or you can let the software find it for you from databases like Amazon, FreeDB, and MusicBrainz.

Playlist creator: When we tested the playlist creation feature, we were delighted to find that the playlist file is automatically given an appropriate name consisting of the artist's name, album, and release year. In addition to creating playlists for media players, you can also create ordinary lists of songs that you can save in formats like plain text, Excel, and HTML.

Cons

Unintuitive workflow: Don't be surprised if it takes you a couple of minutes to get a handle on this app. Since all options are fairly advanced in their scope, they require a bit more input than you would expect.

Bottom Line

TagScanner proves to be an ideal app for those who want complete control over their music collection. And when you consider how seamless it is to make changes to multiple songs at the same time, the software becomes even more useful if you own a lot of music.
