The reason why is the Grouping field no longer working in iTunes
In October iTunes added some long overdue better support for classical releases in the form of new moment, movement no, total and work fields. This allows movements within a release to be shown together, and really helps for classical releases, especially w...

Updating iTunes Work and Movement fields easily with SongKong
iTunes now supports movements and works for Classical music but does not provide any way to automatically add data to these fields. So if you are using iTunes as an editor it becomes very time consuming to add this new data. Adding Only Works and Movements ...

ITunes add a new Grouping field but Ignores the Existing one !
In this previous post I explained the good news for Classical music fans that iTunes now has support for works and movements. But the bad news for Mp3 and Aif formats was that it was now using the TIT1 field to store the Work instead of the Grouping. This m...

Story
Tagline
Indie Developer creating really useful software for Macs,PC's and Linux
Introduction
JThink is the home of Indie Developer Paul Taylor and is based in Bridport, on the south west coast of the United Kingdom, this is the home of SongKong and Jaikoz Music taggers

My priority is to provide high quality, useful software at a fair price. JThink software is available at a fair price with free upgrades and support, so you only pay once. JThink is an indie development company, this means that unlike conventional development techniques used in larger commercial projects, there is no development team, and therefore no time spent in meetings and coordination, the designer is the implementor. So there are no messy compromises in the design and I am able to be highly responsive to the specific needs of customers, and adapt products to a customers specific requirements.
