Playlist Assist

I'm happy to announce the release of Playlist Assist. Do you miss the old playlist window feature?

Playlist Assist provides a floating window to which tracks from iTunes can be dragged and then sorted, arranged, auditioned, edited, exported as text, and saved back to iTunes as a new playlist. Keeps playlist construction in focus while still being able to conveniently navigate around iTunes for tracks and playlists.

Playlist Assist features:

  • Recognizes audio and video tracks
  • Sort, search, shuffle, and drag-and-drop Play Order arranging
  • QuickLook playback
  • Get Info
  • Save as new playlist to iTunes, directly to Playlist Folders if you like
  • Save and play in Up Next immediately
  • Touch-up basic tag editing
  • Export playlist data as tab-delimited text, XML, M3U
  • Export files of tracks to Finder
  • Compatible with iTunes Match tracks (however, some features only apply to local files)
  • Familiar iTunes-like interface, ample shortcuts, update checking, in-app Help

Playlist Assist is for OS X 10.7 or later, iTunes 10 or later. Download the full-featured demo from here.
