A great way to organize all your songs in iTunes is by rating them with stars. However once you're library becomes filled with songs, rating them one by one can really be a nightmare. AutoRate is there to solve this.
This free little application goes through your library, automatically rating songs according to the parameters you set. You can choose to rate your whole library or sections of it and choose to only have full stars of half stars. Thanks to a slider you adjust the rating bias, choosing to give more weight to either play count or play frequency. The existing rating memory slider is essentially to give weight to previous ratings. The more you get closer to 'Full' the more it takes it into account. Setting cache analysis also ensures that the program reviews all of your songs.
AuoRate is a great program to finally rate all of your songs. However don't expect it to be as precise as if you'd actually set the stars yourself. Consider it as an overall rating, which will give you a rough idea of the quality of songs.
Although not very precise, AutoRate is a good way to quickly add star ratings to all your songs in iTunes.
Sporting a brand new rating algorithm and shiny new interface, this new version features more intelligent, more adjustable rating.
Saves you the hassle of rating
Can adjust your own settings
Not very precise
This application automatically sets the rating for all tracks in your iTunes library according to how often each track is played, and how often each track is skipped.
Tracks that are frequently skipped are penalised, while often-played tracks are given a higher rating. This is particularly useful when using the 'Play higher rated songs more often' option with Party Shuffle, or using smart playlists.
