Softonic review

A comprehensive music tag editor

Big digital music collections often mean lots of badly named files. If you want to change the tags for an audio file- a music files meta data - doing it one by one can be a bind. TagScanner Portable is a free application that is designed to get your files quickly and correctly tagged with minimal effort.

If you only use MP3 files and iTunes, the tag editor in that program is absolutely fine. However, if you use lossless formats, or any not supported by iTunes, TagScanner Portable will be really useful.

There are a few ways to edit your tags. You can choose the type of tag for a start, and retrieve data from four online sources. There are Amazon, Discogs, Tracktype.org and FreeDB, meaning TagScanner Portable will find info for pretty much any musical release you want. You can use these to auto tag your files, or you can group edit files, adding album titles, year of release, album covers and even lyrics.

TagScanner Portable can also export your files lists in many formats, from suitable for Excel to m3u playlist files you can use in audio players. It really is a very comprehensive application, and it suffers a bit from complication. TagScanner Portable has an intimidatingly complex interface!

TagScanner Portable will satisfy all your tag-related needs as it's packed full of useful feature, but it's not the most intuitive application you'll find

- New: Ability to shuffle list of files- Updated sorting logic for some columns of filelist- Fixed behaviour of some file dialogs on WinXP- Fixed problems with false error indication while saving ID3v1 tags- Updated playback engine
