Get Smarts

Smarts is a simple to use app that stores the criteria of your Smart Playlists — the smarts of a Smart Playlist — as templates so that you can restore them later, export for back-up, or share with other iTunes users.

Having a lot of Smart Playlists can slow iTunes down, but by storing your unused Smart Playlists as templates in Smarts you can then remove your unused Smart Playlists from iTunes and only reload them when you need them again.

What I've been using it for is to store "starter" Smart Playlists templates that contain frequently used criteria. Instead of having to re-enter a complex set of criteria every time I create a new Smart Playlist, I just load a starter with my basic criteria already entered and then I only have to add a minimum of new criteria.

Smarts. It's now available at the Mac App Store as a free download.
