Thanks for getting in touch.


I am working on TuneSpan 1.3 which will be fully compatible with iTunes 12.2 and will have some nice new features.


The Mobile Apps are showing up in TuneSpan because of changes to the XML in iTunes 12.2, I've simply had to hide them in the TuneSpan UI because they still can't be spanned because they don't respond to the necessary "set location" AppleScript command.


About the deleted podcasts showing up in TuneSpan. That's a different issue. If you email me directly, I can send you an AppleScript that can fully remove the deleted podcasts from iTunes so that they won't show up in TuneSpan. But, I'm not comfortable posting the script publicly because it could be dangerous if someone uses it without understanding what they are doing.

TuneSpan 1.3 is now available on the Mac App Store http://mas.tunespan.com


TuneSpan 1.3 will no longer show these files (such as Mobile Apps) that can't be spanned :-)

I am using Tunespan 1.3 and have the Podcasts problem. A previously deleted video podcast has been picked up as a movie by Tunespan and is showing under the genre Podcasts in Movies.


Also, when I tested using Locate Missing Files TS told me there were 88 files it could not find. Again, all previously deleted and trashed iTunes podcasts??

I can send you the script to delete old "ghost" Podcasts if you email me directly. When you do so, would you mind sending over your iTunes Library XML as well so I can look into this Podcast showing up in Movies. Wanna make sure I've fixed that in the next update.

Hi There,


I downloaded the latest version of TuneSpan (1.3.1) and have the same issue with deleted podcasts. do I also need to run the mentioned script?

@Kai Sounds like you need the script as well. Please email me through the app or through https://contact.tunespan.com and I can send it your way.
