Shtaggle is a little app I wrote, after a few conversations with James and others about how cool it would be to be able to tag your music in iTunes from last.fm’s tags. It started off as a Django standalone project on my Mac, but after encouragement from various peeps it has progressed to an App (via py-cocoa).
So Shtaggle has reached a point where I have let it loose in the world…
It is now on versiontracker and the hoards of other sites that read versiontracker’s RSS feeds.
Shtaggle gets music tags from last.fm, and then allows you to tag the tracks in iTunes using either the tags from last.fm or your own.
You can choose tags by record label, mood and instrument too.
Shtaggle will then send any tags back to your last.fm profile (if you have one) that you haven’t already added to it for a given track.
Shtaggle will also let you auto-tag your music, using the top tags from last.fm, if you don’t have time to do it manually.
I’ve had some good feedback from it, and will be making it even slicker soon I hope… (the windowing is pretty odd).
Anyway, if you are using OS X 10.5 then please do check it out, and blog about it as you like (yeah I need some advertising to beat off Moody and QuickTag, both of which look a lot slicker, but do less :-P)
