    I recently-ish converted to the Mac from Windows, and with it my MP3 collection migrated too. Unfortunately I cannot find a decent free MP3 ID3 (metadata tag) editor to replace MP3 Book Helper (mp3bookhelper.sourceforge.net) on Windows.

    Itunes is rather cumbersome as information needs to be entered in manually and individually.

    Does anybody know any good ID3 editors for the Mac?

    iTunes does suck for editing in general, but you can select multiple files using the shift or Apple keys while selecting and pressing "Get Info" (Command + I). You can apply batch changes in the info window.

    Tag.

    It's pretty good, not sure if it does MP3's though.

    Wow, Tagr is pretty awesome. Thanks for linking that, I've been searching for something like this for a long time.

    Glad everyone is finding Tagr useful. :) I also searched for months for a decent ID3 editor before finally finding this one.

    Finally a piece of software that does what I want it to, or as near as damn it to my PC version of MP3 Tag.

    Fantastic find. Thank you.

    I know this is a old bump, but I have been looking for a program like Tagr for AGES. Thank you so much.

    I realize this is an old thread but is Tagr still one of the better mp3 taggers out there?

    Im still using it and have found nothing better. Mind you in saying that, I have never looked at Tagr does everything I need to. :)

    I checked out TAG. Kind of surprising to find a software last updated in 2006 still works :) But unfortunately doesn't work with MP3 files.

    Tagr on the other hand… opens and seems to work. But my problem with MP3 files that have iD3 v2 and won't open in iTunes is still not resolved. If anyone knows an app that can remove ID3 v2 please share.
