Does what it suppost to do and works good!

Using it for many years, because I think it is the best editor for file tags. Unfortunately, after a recent switch from Mate to Cinnamon, I found that keeping the "preserve modification time" was no longer persistent. I installed by (big) mistake Easytag-nautilus and after restoring my system with Timeshift, it seems to keep the preserve setting!

Automatically applies "corrections" to my music's metadata without letting me decide or even telling me what these supposed corrections are. Not recommended.

Funciona perfecto en Linux Mint 20.2 y solo ocupa 5MB. No es muy intuitivo pero sirve para renombrar archivos en función de sus etiquetas

j'utilise trés peu de fonction, mais pour ce que j'ai a faire, il fonctionne bien, dommage que le glissé/déposé ne fonctionne pas. je n'ai pas rencontré de probleme.

Very useful for adding metadata to ripped CD music, however it's difficult to select individual tracks and should honestly just implement a checkbox selecting system like most other programs do with these kind of lists.

goes off bottom of screen what's up with some files being hilited? not that easy appears to save entire file not just metadata really designed for audio files SUCKS!

Linux Mint 19.3: It's changing automatically the mp3-files (correcting them). That's the negativ point. But on the other hand it works good.

Damned near impossible to use. A fine example of bloatware. Avoid at all costs.

It has lots of nice functions and features including album art but comfortable ease of use is terrible. Easy to get lost with lots of sub directories and applying some of the lenses is cumbersome. Defaults do not change easily and colum sizes change causing irritation.It works, it is OK, but feels like a battle to use.

Coming from Windows and mp3TAG, this is even better and so much easier to use. The little things like leading zeros for tracks 1-9 is awesome. Well done for such a perfect applciation in every way :)
