    As a former windows user I used iArt as a program to easily find lyrics and album artwork for itunes tracks.

    Is there a program similar to this for mac?

    I've searched and only found programs that display artwork and lyrics for currently playing music. This is not what I want.

    I'm looking for a program that will go through my entire itunes library and update album art and lyrics.

    Is there a program that can do this for mac?

    Fetch Art does it, however I'm yet to find one that manages to get non-mainstream artists covers 100% correct

    GimmeSomeTune will do it all for you! If you have a huge library to do i suggest using this script Needledrop to setup itunes to play the first few seconds of each song, during which GimmeSomeTune will update the albumart and lyrics for you!

    just for a laugh the other day while in iTunes I chose "select all" then "get album artwork" and forgot that I even did it. Two days later when I was shutting down my PC iTunes was still looking for artwork.

    Thanks a ton!!!
    I'm using Gimmiesometune and needledrop. I set the songs to play for 10 seconds each on needledrop, and gimmiesometune is doing the rest.

    Gimmiesometune is a neat program!

    Thanks again!
