    "Wow, this sounds like an app is supposed to do. Make a tedious job extremely painless. Endorsed by Time, New York Times and PC Magazine seems to be a great indicator of best in class. One calls it "stupid simple".Makes it perfect for me."

      "I have way too much music and no way to manage it. So, I started looking for resources for managing my music. I gave "Google Play Music" a shot and I was very disappointed. It didn't have as many sorting features as I'd like making it very hard to find the music I want when I want. I recommend looking elsewhere for something to manage music."

      "I have 1000s of songs in one playlist on my phone. I wanted to be able to sort my songs into different playlists and organize the music better by artist or genre. I downloaded iTunes and it has been a lifesaver in this area. It has sophisticated playlist management and lets me sort and filter my songs. Now they are highly organized!"

      "This made it so much easier to get all of my music on my new iPhone. I had music scattered all over my different devices and this manages all of them."

      "Clementine makes managing small or large music libraries a snap. I really like how easy it is to use, with a simple interface that can be customized to my liking. It can display all the information of my music, along with extras like album covers."

      "I still had a major collection of MP3s even after I switched to Spotify and had trouble managing all the music until I found MusicBee. It works with windows and not only does it help manage your collection, it is also a player app. It is one best I have ever used and I highly recommend that you try it out if you;re facing a similar problem."

      "JRiver is PC-only at present and is compatible with Windows 2000, XP, Vista, Windows 7 and Windows Home Server. I enabled the 30 day free trial and now know that the $50 license agreement covers all computers that are yours but only one at a time. If you have more than one person in the house with access then you need to pay an additional $50 to run two computers. Installing the JRiver software was easy and trouble-free. There is a lot to learn about JRiver so I recommend the trial to see if it is right for you."

      "I was tired of fooling with so many different apps to listen to and handle my music and podcasts. I wanted a one stop solution to manage all of my listening content. This is where the doubleTwist Music & Podcast Player with Sync app came in handy. It seamlessly allows me to manage all of my listening needs in one place instead of having to switch between countless apps."

      "I can't tell you how many times I have been frustrated trying to get music from my pc to my iphone. It's like....am I the only person in the world who uses a pc and an iphone. Plus, I find itunes so hard to use. This allows me to freely copy not only my music but my photos as well, which makes life so much easier!"

      "Dropbox is a pretty cool site, especially since a lot of similar sites have recently gone under. I like it for managing my music because it saves online, so I don't have to worry about my hard drive going out and losing my entire library or anything like that, which has been an issue for me in the past."

      "I wanted a way to store my music in one place. However I also wanted to have it stored on a cloud that I could listen to from my laptop, tablet, and smartphone. Microsoft OneDrive granted me enough space to store my music files, and I can access it when I am on the go."

      "I suppose that Google Drive could be used for music, but it seems silly when there are plenty of other ways you can store. What ever happened to iTunes? Is that still around ?"

      "AIMP is an audio player similar to the likes of Real Player or iTunes. It comes with plugins and custom functionality to tune it specifically to your needs. Best of all it's free! The only downside is that it's only available for Android and Windows devices."

      "I gave Audirvana Plus a try to manage the huge collection of music files that I have on my Mac. To be honest, the software does not provide anything other than what iTunes already provides. Not really worth the download in my opinion since iTunes is already available on my Mac and the interfaces are similar."

      "Resonic isn't my favorite choice for managing music. The big waveform view is cool, but I don't think it's attractive enough to pull me away from Spotify or Itunes as a user. The other problem is that if you're actually a music producer, you're going to be doing all of your file management in your DAW (Digital Audio Workstation). Nearly every producer has one of those already, rendering this a bit useless for them."

      "I have tons of music I have been collecting for almost 20 years. I have so many different file types it is crazy. I got an app called Elmedia Player. Elmedia Player plays in every format I have thrown at it. I like the options it has. I was able to finally organize my vast collection finally. I really like it."
