    Does anyone know how to edit the metadata of a track in Google Play Music from within the N5?

    I've been using Airdroid to drag & drop music from my PC to my music folder and then creating my playlists on my N5 from the Google Play Music app. However a lot of my songs don't display the title or artwork and I'd love to edit that if I could. Thanks for any tips.

    Thanks Rukbat! That looks like a helpful app.

    When I look up a track in iTag, it's actually showing the correct image but in Google Play Music, it's showing that artwork from a different track. Have you ever run into this problem before?

    Google Play isn't the greatest at reading artwork and some tags. Every time I get a new album I put the artwork in the mp3 and fix the tags, yet I still get some artwork that doesn't show up. It's obnoxious.
