    i am working on moving most of my music from iTunes over to my android. the bulk of the album art that shows up in iTunes does not show on the android. is there a way to fix this?

    my cover art is all embedded, a la iTunes style. any tips would be greatly appreciated.

    AFAIK, default setting in iTunes is not embedding the album art, rather it associates a picture file with a music file. Try to check again.

    I believe poweramp and google music both have options for downloading album art for your music.

    Correct, PowerAmp looks for embedded album art first. If it can't find any, it will look up the artist and album information then download the artwork. It doesn't always get the actual album cover, but sometimes it will grab publicity photos instead. The only time it won't get album art is if there are no id3 tags, then it has an odd habit of grabbing a random photo from your download directory.

    PowerAmp is literally the first app I ever paid for, and I've had no regrets.
