Applet assists with swapping, copying, appending data between track tags

OS X 10.8 or later. This applet will assist with swapping, copying, and appending data between two user-chosen tags in selected tracks or tracks in the selected playlist:

Swap - swap data between tags, ex: ARTIST<->COMPOSER
Copy - copy data from one to another tag, ex: ARTIST->COMPOSER ARTIST
Append - append data from one tag to the end of another, ex: ARTIST->COMPOSER - ARTIST
Prepend - prepend data from one tag to the beginning of another, ex: ARTIST->ARTIST - COMPOSER


The latter three actions also provide an option to delete the info from the first tag after the copy. Read Me explains all.

This update is free for registered users of v4.x.

Action shot:
