    Album Art Grabber is a pretty self explanatory app. You've got albums with no album cover art? Album Art Grabber can fix that. Its fairly easy to use too. Hit menu --> Grab missing album art, and you're on your way. Album art grabber will automatically go through all your albums and fit the appropriate album cover for you. It takes a fair bit of time depending on how many albums you have, and accuracy is a mixed bag, but after the app was done with its business and I saw the end result, I really couldn't complain. Out of 500+ albums, it got album art for more than 90%. I did have to run the app about three times to eventually grab all of them, but I imagine this isn't as much of a problem if you dont have an excessive 500+ albums like me.


    For the remaining albums left with no cover art, there is an in app manual way to grab cover art, and it works very well. You've got the choice to find album art through the internet or with your own picture from your SD card. Best of all, no matter how underground or unknown the artist is, I always got accurate results. Even foreign artists.


    Not all is gum drops and rainbows here though, there are a few quirks; Like when this guy showed up on my MC Hammer album cover. Woah..MC Hammer sure got pale. I should give this app credit though, because in all fairness, most songs that Album Art Grabber failed to grab accurately all had one thing in common; their mp3 tags were wrong and labeled inaccurate, which is an error not on Album Art Grabbers fault. Manually going in and grabbing the art myself via the in app manual grab feature fixed this problem and I was able to reunite the real MC Hammer with his respective album and get rid of that impostor!

    Conclusion? Quirks aside, this app wins my above satisfactory rating. As long as your songs are labeled correctly, you should have no trouble grabbing 100% accurate album art. Its cheap and my music library looks colorful and complete. All is right with the world. Download it and try for yourself!

    Wondering why it won't work on the Incredible, though?

    Does anyone know if this actually embeds the album art in the tag? I'm not tag expert, but I know that when you don't have the picture in the tag itself, trouble ensues... especially if you switch music players or try to move your collection *flashes iTunes the middle finger*
