Droplet/applet adds files, creates playlists based on artist-album or folder name

Drag-and-drop a single folder containing media files on this droplet (or double-click it to select a folder via an open dialog); it will add each file to iTunes and then distribute the tracks to playlists named using your choice of the tracks' "Artist - Album" tags or the name(s) of the folder(s) containing the file.

OS X 10.6 or later only. Previous universal version available at the link below in the "Info" section.
