    many of you guys probably know the splended app, album art thingy; it automaticley puts cover art and lyrics to the song you're listening to in itunes. well , I was wondering; is there an app around that does the same thing or that is even better. or an app that is available for free or cheaper than the 15 $ that album art thingy costs?

    thanks for your reply.

    yeah, but I don't own a credit card and I believe you need one to open up an account?

    Interesting! :confused:

    Of course, I created my account in aught three, so it might have changed since then. Sorry.

    You can delete the information after you put it in. Then you can work off of gift cards.

    I use Harmonic (free widget) for automatically adding lyrics to any song being played. It won't scan your whole library, but it adds the lyrics in the first 1-2 seconds of a song being played, so you can just keep skipping through the songs every second or two.

    I used iTunes to populate a lot of the cover art, but I wasn't happy with the quality of the images. Many were very grainy. I wanted higher quality, so I have added all the artwork manually, mostly from these sources:
