    grab tunewiki from the market, it will do it automagically, works pretty good from my experiance.

    If you don't like that app, I also found that there is some free software out there called mediamonkey that works pretty on the pc, then use that to sync the music over and it should put the album art in there, might have to search around though, I think there were a couple ways to do it but hope this points you in the right direction.

    I've heard doubletwist mentioned alot for itunes people but I never really used itunes and neither have I even looked at doubletwist so I can't offer an opinion....just a random synapse firing that may help your search.

    Hmmm that is a good question? I would have to throw a few songs on the internal memory to test, can't do it right now. If I have time I'll try or if ya figure it out let us know!!

    Mediamonkey rocks though I have had problems with some album art not showing up in the stock player. Oddly the album shows up in every other 3rd party music app so I'm guessing there's a problem with the stock app not properly reading/updating album art.

    With mediamonkey you can setup your phone to sync to a specific playlist or directory on your PC and tell it to either embed the art or add it as a separate file.

    Album art does show up when songs are on the internal memory. However, it is a PITA to get art to show up correctly/at all. When I first put songs on my Incredible, every song had the same exact album art. I deleted the contents of the albumthumbs and it got rid of the album art. I haven't been able to get it back on since even after deleting every song and resyncing them.

    I've never used MediaMonkey but I love "album art graber" I think it was $.99 but well worth it and you just go in click add art and it automaticlly adds all your artwork and very fast as well. The first time I did it was over 1000 without art and it took about 20minutes to find all of it

    Definetly worth the buck

    You don't need any app for adding artwork to your music in your cellphone. Once you uploaded your music to google cloud, all you got to do is go to settings, hit apps, then tap google music play app, hit clear data. Then open the play music app and there! your app is syncing the artwork!
