Real Networks:

>Rinse is the smartest way to seamlessly organize and repair your iTunes music library. We’re powered by an intelligent online database which finds what you need without searching or typing.

A lot of people having been giving Real crap for creating an Adobe Air application that does something many other people can do for free, all while charging $39 for the privilege. They are right, a lot of the “features” of this app are utter crap. Except one, finding and removing duplicate tracks. You can find them easily in iTunes, but I have over 1300 duplicates, which means I manually have to remove that many — I don’t have that much patience or time.

So I bought Rinse and let it go through my library to find the duplicates, guess what? It worked, and from what I can tell it did exactly what I have been trying to do for over a year now: get rid of a mass amount of duplicates with one push of the button. Good times.

As for the other features: they seem to be hit and miss. Worth the $39 dollars to me though. (I know you think I am crazy for saying that, but I had two libraries that I merged which have lots of duplicates on them.)
