This app is easy to install and completes tasks quickly . The focus of this app on finding and deleting duplicate files may give it a speed advantage when compared to competitors’ apps with multiple functions. This app also has a backup option to store and protect your library, and helps identify and delete links that are not connected to the primary media file. This in turn stops those annoying errors you would otherwise receive while operating your media device.

The Disadvantages of Tune Sweeper

This app also has several disadvantages that are worth noting. For example, the limitation of this app, when compared to its competitors, is that it lacks many of the functions that the typical iTunes enthusiast is looking for. Tune Sweeper does not find or download lyrics, nor find or download missing album art, nor find and replace missing songs from the iTunes Store .

tunesweeper_slider_citizen_1One reviewer notes that this app works great as a duplicate cleaner but does not replace other full service apps with more functions . The app’s search capabilities are similar to the iTunes app but provide very little functional assistance. The app’s purpose ” to identify, locate, and delete duplicate files ” is little served by this expanded search capability. Unless the duplicate file is named “Duplicate,” this search function has little purpose.

This app is occasionally advertised as free on the Internet, but it is not. This app is free to try, for a short period. The free trial version has limited functionality which makes it difficult to determine if it is the right app for you. After the trial period, the app costs $19.99. Unfortunately, the trial period ends after you have located your duplicate files and unattached links.

If you are looking for an app that replaces lost media, downloads lyrics and replaces lost album art, Tune Sweeper will cost you more in the long run, as you will have to buy additional apps to fill the gaps that Tune Sweeper does not address. Not only this, but the risk inherent in adding additional apps is that they may duplicate functions as well as conflict with one another when downloaded to the same media device.

Final Comments

Despite the app’s limitations, Tune Sweeper has been given great reviews for its ability to clean up and organize your media device. Your media device will run much more smoothly, as well as be easier to search for your favorite songs and albums. This easy-to-use app is worth considering to clean up your library and to help make your iTunes media device fun to use again.

The immediate benefit of Tune Sweeper is obvious, its low price. Beyond that this is a quality cleanup tool that doesn't have all the bells and whistles that other iTunes cleaners do.
