If iTunes Is a Headache, Wondershare TunesGo Is Your Aspirin…

  • Save

The following comes from DMN strategic partner WonderShare, a company dedicated to solving iTunes headaches with its companion plug-in, TunesGo.

iTunes has always been one of the biggest music platforms in world, and it’s about to get bigger with streaming.  But if you’re one of the hundreds of million of users, you’ve endured your share of headaches.

Here are just some of the issues we constantly hear from users:

1. Android incompatibility.

If you have a Mac and use an Android, you’ve undoubtedly faced innumerable issues listening to your collection on mobile.  That’s because Apple has always wanted it that way, despite the presence of hundreds of millions of Android users worldwide.

2. It’s really hard for iPhone users to share music.

We also constantly hear from users hitting snags sharing between iPhones.  Which is really frustrating considering that you’re inside Apple’s ecosystem!

3. Incomplete song information.

Downloading stuff online?  This may not be Apple’s fault, but free, authorized music downloads often lack the necessary ID3 tags, making it really hard to search and sort the music you’re discovering.  But Apple makes it difficult to easily edit all of this information.

4. It unexpectedly quits.

Yeah, Apple crashes.  And it looks like this.

5. iTunes Match still needs work.

Match is far from perfect, and grayed-out is a recurring issue.

6. Duplicates are still a problem.

iTunes has duplicate finding capabilities, but they’re often poor and don’t properly match and eliminate doubles.

Overall, you could easily argue that iTunes is past its prime, and users are moving on towards far greater capabilities.  That’s where WonderShare has been innovating.  As a trusty companion, we do what iTunes can’t, and make your experience much richer as a result.

TunesGo: Your Perfect iTunes Companion

This is where our innovations come in.  We’ve been working on a number of features that we hope comprise a one-stop solution to iTunes woes.

1. Better management of music files

We’ve worked hard to make it easy to transfer your library from wherever to wherever, whether iOS back to iTunes on your Mac or between iPhones and Android devices.  And we’ve made it easy for the hundreds of millions of Android users to use iTunes, headache-free.

2. Vastly improved file management.

We’ve created better song ordering and arrangement across your entire collection.

3. Better YouTube access.

Forget about YouTube Music Key, which may not even launch this year.  We’re already offering the option of using YouTube as a real, personal music source.

4. More sophisticated metadata clean-up.

TunesGo offers the option of completely cleaning your music library though a complete analysis and cleaning of all files.

5. A restriction-free library.

Music management without any iTunes restrictions; TunesGo even automatically converts your file formats to those supported by your devices.

Basically, we’re trying to create an all-encompassing, all-purpose solution for the serious music fan.  Our latest version, TunesGo 6.4.0, will be released very soon and will be quickly followed by another portfolio of improvements.

A really important feature of Wondershare TunesGo 6.4.0 is that it allows you to totally back up your entire iTunes library, including not just the music files themselves but file paths, playlists, and all settings.  We place all of this neatly into external and internal drives.  And you can always port that to any other computer.

Some other features of the latest version that we’re exciting to discuss including multilingual support and the easy transferring of videos from PC to iPhone and iPad without any quality loss.  Apart from these, you can also efficiently manage your iPhone contacts and SMS messages without the need for iTunes, which includes merging duplicate contacts without any loss of critical data.

Anyway, we’ve had a lot of fun building this; we hope you’ll join in!

    Dude, your pirate spam belongs on TorrentFreak.

      Free Authorized music doesn’t mean pirated music… Lorde released her first album for free to almost 100,000 downloads.

    Oh, I get it: it’s not enough that there is so much pirated music already on YouTube. Now, you can also download it to your iTunes library. The perfect crime. Stealing from the thief.

      Am I missing something? It’s not just Youtube, right? It’s any song from anywhere the user got it, could be a pirated song from any site.

      It would be interesting to find out where the biggest sources of pirated music are though, I’m sure Youtube is near the top of the list.

  3. There is something...

    How funny it is to see DMN promote an app that allow you to make illegal downloads of copyrighted music !

    Guess the only difference between Grooveshark, Apple Music and Wondershare is how much they pay DMN for their nice infomercial…

    “In ONE step, you can now download or record music from YouTube and other music sites directly into your iTunes library.” Nice work Paul.

    • Paul Resnikoff

      If you think that’s bad, you won’t believe what companies are actively pitching us on YouTube downloads. Actually, I’ll post one of them…

    What the hell is this doing on DMN?
    This sounds like just another piracy-enabling platform.

    • Paul Resnikoff

      So… remember this is an iTunes add-on. Wouldn’t that be the far bigger piracy enabler, starting with every single P2P-downloaded track having a safe home starting in the early 2000s? Love how companies like Apple get a free pass, every time.

      • There is something...

        So… you blame Apple Music for wanting 3 months royalty free, but you promote this company that will pay 0 for the downloaded music ? Love how companies THAT PAY YOU get a free pass, every time.

        • Paul Resnikoff

          I’m having trouble understanding what you’re talking about. This is an add-on, they’re not in control of the broader ecosystem at all. They’re pointing to authorized downloads (see the text), not torrented illegal downloads, etc.

          Though, I will grant you, I think they are skirting things with the Youtube downloads. But… wait: why isn’t Google/YouTube getting a bulk of the blame on that? I’m not trying to exonerate anyone here, but YouTube only blocks some of the download apps, probably based on RIAA demands. Because the greater functionality users enjoy, including downloads of videos, the better it is for YouTube.

          That’s the real story here. And the only reason someone like the RIAA would go after someone like this is because they can, and aren’t afraid of taking on a tiny rival. It’s the big bully that lacks balls (and gets a huge salary).

            “the greater functionality users enjoy, including downloads of videos, the better it is for YouTube”

            Why is it better for YouTube to make less money?

          • There is something...

            That’s exactly the issue Paul. By allowing the user to download from YouTube, you’re bypassing the monetization system that allow the artist to make money every time the video is viewed.

            The fact that other app do the same thing, or that YouTube could put more effort into blocking those apps is irrelevant. You can’t blame Apple or Spotify for low pay-rates on their free tier then promote an App that completely bypass the monetization process.

        “companies like Apple get a free pass, every time”

        Not companies like Apple. Just Apple. And it’s always been a trade-off.

        But it’s over now.
