Includes external hooks
Norbert Doerner has released MP3-Info 2.0, a major upgrade to his plug-in for Finder and iTunes that organizes music collections. The new version turns the software into a stand alone application for Snow Leopard, and includes integration with Twitter, which allows users to display what song they are currently listening to. The app also displays its own track info.
Other features include file renaming based on tags, searches for similar songs within the CDFinder library, and support for three different tag-editing apps: ID3X, The Tagger and Media Rage. The update is also capable of displaying embedded cover art and lyrics, the latter in a separate window so they do not interfere with iTunes controls.
MP3-Info 2.0 runs on Mac OS X 10.5 or later; v1.5 still available for users running Mac OS X 10.3 or 10.4. The program is free to download, though the developer does accept donations.
