Organise your iTunes library and build better playlists

BeaTunes is a useful companion to iTunes that can detect and resolve many common library problems, create well-matched playlists, import lyrics, and more.

Launch the program and it will immediately import your iTunes library, and go hunting for issues. These might include multiple spellings for the same artist (REM or R.E.M., say), duplicate files, misspelled album names, rarely used genres, mismatched release dates (songs belonging to the same album with different release years), and more. The trial version will only display these errors, but purchase a licence and you'll be able to fix them in a click or two.

If you have files with ambiguous names, like 01-track.mp3, then beaTunes can use its MusicIP fingerprinting technology to retrieve the track name, artist, album and more (as long as they're not DRM-protected). It'll then give your files more meaningful names, and set their tags, too.

The program is also able to analyse the beats per minute and tonal key of your songs, using this and other information to create playlists of songs that work well together. Or, if you have plenty of playlists already, then beaTunes will sort them so that, wherever possible, the best-matched songs always follow each other.

And beaTunes delivers plenty of other useful features, including options to import song lyrics from Lyricsfly, organise your library with del.icio.us-like tags, or create blog entries at blogger.com with your favourite songs or playlists.

What's new in 5.0.6? See the release news for more info:

- Improved memory environment variable manipulation (Windows).
- Improved misspelled album inspector.
- Improved robustness of folder-based synchronization.
- Fixed Open in Chordify.
- Fixed small errors in German translation.
- Fixed range coercion for downloaded BPM values.
- Fixed re-import of embedded ReplayGain tags.
- Fixed embedding of true ReplayGain peaks.
- Fixed issues with Canadian Amazon integration.
- Added missing Wikipedia icon.
- Added pre-generated icons.
- Updated JAudioTagger library.
- Only embed analysis date if something actually got changed.

Verdict:

beaTunes is an interesting iTunes accessory. The matching playlists worked well in our tests, and the library inspection options will be a major plus point for anyone with a huge and unwieldy iTunes library

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.82

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.
