Dupeaway icon 512x512 icon thumb Dupe Away Initial Release!!

When you spend a lot of time testing out iPod transfer software, or if you're trying to combine two music collections you can end up with with a pretty disorganized iTunes Library. When the clutter of music reaches hundreds, or thousands, of dupes, you need a program to help get rid of it - and that's what Dupe Away is. Dupe away is a small, single purpose program; it seeks and destroys duplicate tracks from iTunes. In the free download version of it users get a 100% free analysis of their library to see if they have any duplicates or tracks without locations. After the analysis, the instant delete feature can be unlocked for $7.99. Dupe away is available for Mac OSX 10.5 and 10.6. It requires iTunes.

If you take a look at the updated preference menu, you'll now see a new option that allows for transferred images to be displayed directly in the device's picture albums. All you have to do to add an image to a picture album on the device is to copy the file into one of the sub folders within the DCIM directory.
