    No cover art download, no manual save of new discovered tag, you cannot manually give a tag to a file. Complelely useless.

    It doesn't have an album artwork loader (you need to download the cover over a webbrowser, you couldn't do that with the software alone, (that sound that I am very lazy, but it takes much time, if you edit many Songfiles), and it is not so easy to use like MP3Tag and only use one souce only.
