Clan up your music collection tags with Mp3tag

One of the great benefits of working with digital music files is that metadata makes it possible to perform advanced searches, as well as benefiting from high quality audio. But being able to do this is dependent on having the correct information attached to files so that it can be successfully searched. The tracks you purchase online should be correctly tagged, but this is not necessary the case for those that you rip yourself.

Of course, it is possible to manually go through your music collection and add missing tags or edit those that are incorrect. But this is likely to be a very lengthy process for many people due to the size of the average music collection, so you may find it helpful to turn to MP3tag to make things a little easier.

Despite the name, the program is capable of adjusting the tags for not only MP3 files, but also WMA, MP4, OGG and many more. You can quickly apply the same tags – such as the artist name – to a folder filled with MP3s so they do not need to be edited manually, but you can also pull in information from online databases such as Amazon or Freedb to avoid the need to type anything out my hand.

In addition to making it easy to edit your music tags, MP3tag can also be used to create playlists that can be exported and used in a huge range of different music players. You can also export select information from your music collection so you can create lists of various kinds whenever you need to.

Version 2.97 adds these new features (see full changelog for more):

[2019-07-06]  FIX: some global placeholders at export (e.g., %_total_files%) were not evaluated on a
                   per-loop basis anymore (since v2.91b). (#45818)
[2019-07-05]  FIX: error message was empty if export file was opened and locked by another
                   application.
[2019-07-04]  FIX: invisible _SEPARATOR fields on the Tag Panel were part of the tab sequence.
[2019-07-01]  CHG: copying cover art from Firefox via clipboard uses original image data if
                   available.
[2019-07-01]  FIX: copying cover art from Firefox via clipboard was no longer possible (since
                   v2.95a). (#45776)

Verdict:

An invaluable tool that makes it quick and easy to edit your MP3 tags.

Reactive community, frequent updates. Customizable interface. Tags are retrievable from Discogs (among others) which I'm a frenetic user and contributor too. A perfect tool that I use in association with Winamp.
If like me you need to organize every bit of data associated to your FLAC/MP3 tags, this tool is for you.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.61

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.
