TuneUp seeks Mac beta testers for iTunes plugin

updated 09:10 pm EDT, Thu October 23, 2008

TuneUp coming to Mac

TuneUp Media is bringing its Windows-based iTunes plugin to the Mac, and MacNN users are invited to try the beta. TuneUp works within iTunes to find missing album art, clean-up mislabeled tracks and inconsistent metadata and more. TuneUP claims its plugin is the most popular iTunes add-on for Windows with more than 60-thousand downloads in the past three months

In addition to its cleanup functions, the plug-in also searches the internet for music videos, recommendations and concert information based on a user's music library. TuneUp uses Gracenote's MusicID technology to "electronically listen" to tracks in order to locate missing titles or song information.

The company has reserved 100 beta copies for MacNN readers. The Beta requires an Intel Mac with OS X 10.5 or above and iTunes 7 or 8. Those interested should put their name in the first line in the body of an email and send it to macnn@tuneupmedia.com. The plug-in is currently available in two versions for Windows. The free version allows for 500 cleans, and 50 cover art lookups, before users must upgrade. The "Gold" version removes those limits and is available for a one-time charge of $20, or by annual subscription at $12. The Mac version will be similarly priced.
