    "There are a a lot of such idealised apps but Star Music is the best one because it is simple to use and has everything you need. The only problem I think is to simplify the modification process because it gets a bit weird understanding while modifying. Other than that the best part is that it processes almost every format file I have."

WHAT’S THE MEANING?

MP3 tags are metadata about the MP3 file that conveys information about the artist, track number, album, album cover, year, and genre. This data is encoded in a “container” called ID3, which stores the information in a standard format. “ID3” stands for “IDentify an MP3,” and it was developed in 1996 by Eric Kemp. The ID3 can be found within the MP3 file itself and takes up 128 bytes of space.

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that MP3 stands for MPEG-1 (or MPEG-2) Audio Layer III? MPEG stands for Moving Picture Experts Group, the team that designed the MP3 format in 1993. MP3 files are basically compressed audio files. It uses lossy compression to discard some parts of the data, resulting in a significant reduction in file size. In lossy compression, the partial deletion of data is based on psychoacoustics. The human ear is not capable of hearing all audio frequencies, they can generally only hear sound from 20Hz to 20kHz. So, lossy compression aims to delete the frequencies that the people can’t hear anyway. 

However, because lossy compression reconstructs only an approximation of the original data, the sound quality of the file may degrade. The more the file is compressed, the lesser the sound quality. The opposite of lossy compression is lossless compression, where data is compressed using algorithms that can perfectly reconstruct the original data using the compressed data.

    "Great app if you are a kind of person who likes to keep their music library well organized. Pluses: allows batch operations (change specific tag fields for several files at the same time), allows to get an album cover from a local file. Minuses: getting an album cover automatically from Amazon is no longer available, ads can be annoying, there are some bugs with non-Latin fonts. Overall, very good app! "

    "I have hundreds of music videos and songs on my phone that have the name tag wrong. With ID3Fixer I was able to edit my songs name and artist and correct it. It is super easy to change a song name, artists, year and add other tags. I have used ID3Fixer to have a nice clean songs collection on my phone that I can easily find and search for. "

    "As someone who is a big music enthusiast and has a very large music library, this sort of app strikes me as being very useful. Having the ability to tag songs in order to better organize and sort my substantial collection of songs would be very helpful. I would really like to be able to personalize my own tags in a way that is meaningful to me, particularly if I wanted to create specialized playlists. The fact that this music tag editor is also available in several different languages will make it accessible to a greater range of people."
