The app known as iTunes can become a big “timesuck” — whether you’re using a Windows machine or a Mac. As it grows in size, so do the problems that can creep in. That means you end up with a ton of “Track 1″ songs, two or more instances of the exact same song and missing album cover art all over the place. Getting them out of iTunes manually is a real chore — and will take you away from the stuff you’re supposed to be doing while simply listening to your music. If only iTunes could have a little extra “magic” added to it. Then you could spend more time listening and less time fiddling.

Thanks to TuneUp, you can do just that.

Cleaning up your iTunes Library has never been more robust and yet still easy to use. TuneUp hooks up with iTunes to organize and categorize your music from top to bottom. And for a very limited time, Lifehack Deals has it all queued up…and for only $30!

Here’s what you’ll get as part of the TuneUp Bundle:

  • Clean: Accurately fixes mislabeled or missing song information (like “Track 01” or “Unknown Artist”) using cutting-edge waveform recognition.
  • Cover Art: Scans your entire music collection in seconds and automagically™ fills in missing album artwork.
  • DeDuper: Intelligently finds and removes duplicate music files from your music library using waveform recognition.
  • Tuniverse: Delivers music videos, artist bios, concert alerts, social network integration and more.

I’ve been using TuneUp since its early days, and not only did it replace other tools I had in place beforehand — it has those little bit of extras that save me time where I didn’t expect. For example, one of my favourite bands — Switchfoot — can be found throughout my iTunes Library. Thanks to having TuneUp installed, while i played one of the band’s tracks I was able to find out that they were going to be playing near my city in just a few short weeks. I’ve never had the chance to see them live before, so I was thrilled at knowing how close they were going to be. Because of TuneUp, the only time I had to enter my web browser was to buy my tickets. TuneUp made sure I didn’t miss out on an opportunity to see Switchfoot live. That’s pretty remarkable.

Tuneup has received rave reviews from a variety of media outlets, where it’s been called “quite possibly the most important piece of software any music lover can buy” (Uncrate), along with other testimonials from Wired, MTV and TechCrunch.

TuneUp works with both Mac OS X (10.5+) and the Windows (XP SP2 +), so both Mac and Windows users can get the benefit of a cleaner, leaner, and meaner iTunes experience.

This Lifehack Deals offer is for the TuneUp Bundle – which includes all four TuneUp products (including cleaning up incorrect song information, adding missing cover art, removing duplicate songs, and integrating real-time information like upcoming concerts, links to music videos, and artists bios). But this latest offer has a short shelf life.

you have until March 31 to pick up this Lifehack Deals offer, so get moving on that now so you can get grooving sooner. Hack your iTunes with the TuneUp Bundle and you’ll save yourself a ton of time — and headaches — in the future.
