This is an attempt to produce an easy to use binary package of EasyTAG for OSX.
"EasyTAG is a utility for viewing and editing tags for MP3, MP2, MP4/AAC, FLAC, Ogg Vorbis, MusePack, Monkey's Audio and WavPack files. Its simple and nice GTK+ interface makes tagging easier under GNU/Linux or Windows."
Unfortunately there is (as of January 2010) no official binary package of EasyTAG for Mac OS X. There is however the possibility to install it via Fink, darwinports or compile it completely from Source.
However most mac users are used to have a ready to use binary, which they just drag to their Application folder. I like this distribution form too.
» Provided in standard mac disc image format.
» All supported libraries are available and compiled in (except wavepack).
» Runs natively on your desktop without the need for the X-Server, using quartz-GTK.
» Uses the Mac OS X MenuBar natively
» Dressed in an OS X like GTK2 theme
» Employs a cocoa wrapper, which uses the Sparkle update framwork
A picture says more than a few words :
alpha 5 [01.08.2011, 10.5-10.8 (Intel)]

To comply with the GPL I provide here the GPL and LGPL Source Packages of the libraries I used to build EasyTAG.
