nClass Software has announced that version 0.5 of its popular album artwork gathering application, Corripio, has been released for download at its website http://nclasssoftware.com. Recently featured in the August 2006 issue of Macworld, Corripio is atool for gathering album artwork. By searching four sources: the iTunes Music Store, Coveralia, Best Buy, and Walmart, Corripio enables the user to get the best artwork available for their iTunes libraries with the click of a button.
With this new version, the user now has the ability to search for song lyrics. The lyrics will automatically be added to each songs’ ID3 tag. If wanted, Corripio will prompt the user and ask the user to either approve or edit the new lyrics before they are saved. This feature will allow for easy viewing of song lyrics on one’s iPod. In addition to the new lyric finding ability, Corripio sports a much more user-friendly tag collection feature. Now the user, when fixing tags, has the ability to set which words to keep lowercase, which symbols to remove, and whether or not they want tags corrected on podcasts.
In this version, Corripio will continue to allow the user to set search order priorities for artwork. Now, Corripio has a new option where the user can choose to search all four sources (the iTunes Music Store, Coveralia, Best Buy, and Walmart) at once. Like in the previous versions of this software, the user can search for artwork by artist and album, album, song, and artist. The user also has the ability to see the artwork size to guarantee that the highest quality image is selected. If the user desires to view their new found artwork in a separate window, it is now possible in the latest version.
Corripio is a universal application, available for Mac OS 10.4. It can be had as a free download at http://nclasssoftware.com/index.php/nClassSoftware/corripio/
