What this software does is more than just organizing your music files. You can think of it as a streamlined tool that you can use to discover, search, download, record, transfer, play, stream and share music regardless of the source or platform. If you’re using iTunes, it can be your ideal iTunes companion. If you’re not using iTunes, it can be your ideal music hub as it allows you to access music from different sources like YouTube, Spotify, SoundCloud, etc.
If you’re a new user, it may take a while for you to fully grasp how this software works. Nevertheless, all you need to keep in mind is that it has four main sections – Get Music, Music Library, Device and Toolbox.
For Get Music, it is where you discover, download and record new music from different sources like YouTube, Spotify, MTV, Vimeo, etc. The concept is simple. You go to “Discover” if you want to discover or explore its wide collection of music and playlists (which is apparently based on Spotify playlists). Each playlist can be downloaded to your Music Library and you can even select individual files to download. Now, if you want to download a particular song, you go to “Download”. You simply choose a song that you like then download it as MP3 or MP4. For “Record”, it’s an option where you can record any song or even podcasts from any music software or music station.
Now moving on, the Music Library is like any standard music library. It basically shows all of your music files. It’s where you play and listen to music and sort them out in different categories. You can also create custom playlists. What’s great about the Wondershare TunesGo Music Library is that it instantly identifies songs and updates their tags and covers in just one click.
For “Device”, it basically shows any device that you’ve connected to your PC/Mac via USB. This option is mostly meant for viewing, transferring and organizing the media files that you have on your device. Wondershare TunesGo supports a wide range of Android and iOS devices so compatibility won’t be a problem.
Lastly, there’s the “Toolbox”. The Toolbox is where you can access extra stuffs that allows you to do the following:
- Transfer iOS/Android music to iTunes or vice versa
- Fix music tags and covers
- Backup and restore iTunes Library
- Transfer playlists to USB drive (ideal for creating car playlists)
- Burn music to CD
All in all, Wondershare TunesGo flaunts features that any music lover will like. What’s great about it is it aims to provide a place for you to access, discover and manage your music without frequently shifting apps. In addition, users are still able to make the most out of it even without iTunes. It’s Music Library and built-in music player is also really nice. I like the fact that it has a quick scan feature for missing tags, missing covers, missing tracks and duplicate tracks.
