One of the best things
about iTunes is that, for your 99 cents a song, you also get album art, and properly (if not always completely)
attributed songs. When I first started using the service, I'd already, uh, seen
people using Napster. All
those songs were great off p2p, but the ID3 info was often wrong, missing, or janked up. Worse, no pretty pictures of
the album. Now Artie - The Strongest App... In the World!
the rescue. How? Artie finds the appropriate album covers in your iTunes library, fetches them, and neatly associates
them with your songs. Other apps do this, but Artie automatically resizes them to the proper dimensions, saving you
drive space... Artie doesn't stop there though (why just look at the full title, it wouldn't just pull pictures would
it?). It'll also remove the lame track numbers that often prefix music from those alternative sources. There are other
features, but my favorite is the "Make album art playlists." Artie analyzes the cover art, and groups songs
based on similarity of their covers, thus forming a playlist. Odd, isn't it? But strangely fun and interesting.
