Where iTunes for music differs from iTunes for movies is album art vs. movie poster art. Here’s an inexpensive and easy way to add movie poster art to your movie collection. It all starts with the MovieIcon app. Think of it as album art for movie posters.
Using the app is about as simple as simple can get. Drag a movie or TV show file onto MovieIcon and it will dig around on the internet to try to find a matching movie or TV show poster (and it can search in batches of multiple movies). It can add the poster art to iTunes and you can choose to tag a video as a movie, TV show, or personal video for iTunes organizing.
MovieIcon uses IMDb and TMDb databases to find poster art, but I have a few old TV shows we DVR’d a few years ago that never show up. The app is clean, neat, Mac-like in usability, and the only issue I’ve ever had came the first day. For whatever reason MovieIcon just didn’t work, even after multiple installs and tries. I restarted my iMac and it was good to go and has been ever since.
If you like movie and TV show poster art, this is a good one to get you there, and it’s priced right.
