CDpedia For Mac Publisher's description
Even though this is the age of digital music, it doesn't mean CDs have gone the way of the betamax
Even though this is the age of digital music, it doesn't mean CDs have gone the way of the betamax. But how are you to organize and keep track of your CD collection? Let CDpedia give you a hand: it retrieves information about your CDs automatically from the Internet, lets you organize the entries into collections and integrates with iTunes to let you know which CDs or single songs you have imported already.
Let's get it started
Getting your CD collection into CDpedia is easy: insert a CD into your computer and CDpedia will automatically start a search on freedb.org or Gracenote CDDB. Then add to that information by searching any of the other 8 search sites found in CDpedia. Or if you prefer, do a keyword search for the album or use an iSight or a scanner to scan the bar code into the search window and let CDpedia take care of the rest.
CDpedia helps you organize your physical CD collection but that doesn't mean iTunes should be left out of the loop. It's all about sharing. If you already have a CD or songs from that CD in iTunes, CDpedia will mark them with a little blue note. That way you can see at a glance what songs or albums you have already imported into iTunes. And no need to switch applications when you want to listen to a song either - hit the play button in CDpedia and the song will start playing in iTunes automatically.
Now that you have all your CDs in CDpedia, how are you supposed to get them organized? The magic words are 'smart collections'. Set as many criteria as you like for each smart collection and CDpedia will sort your CDs accordingly. Then every time you add a new CD to the program, the smart collections will automatically update themselves. Do your friends like borrowing your CDs? Then CDpedia helps you there too. It keeps track of who borrowed which CD at what date and when they are supposed to return it.
