Add half stars to your iTunes ratings

iTunes ratingsMy wife is an iTunes freak. She has everything categorized, cataloged, and rated. I don’t quite understand her obsession, but that’s another story. One thing she wished she could do was rate a song with half-stars rather than full. So many songs, she claimed, were nearly perfect, but not 100% worthy of a full five stars. Fortunately for her, there is a simple way to do this in iTunes that doesn’t require the use of any third-party applications. To enable the half-star feature in iTunes, fire-up the Terminal application and paste the following text, then hit return: defaults write com.apple.iTunes allow-half-stars -bool TRUE You can now launch iTunes and start rating. To assign a half star rating, simply click in the tiny space between stars.
