Use Corripio to grab album art from multiple sources Apps
For a while I was using the iTMS Album Art Finder to get my album art. I have never really been a fan of Amazon album art, because some of the images aren't really very good, so I have always relied on finding all my album art from iTunes Music Store directly.

When I learned of the freeware application Corripio, adding iTMS artwork became much easier. But Apple has seemingly blocked almost all of the album art to outside programs, so the app became rather useless. However, the developer has pointed out some alternative album art sources that I didn't know about (i.e. Coveralia, Buy.com, Walmart, Wikipedia). These sources have usually very quality images for any album you can think of, which I'm sure you could find if you looked though them all.

But what is even better, thanks to the Corripio 0.4 Release (download link) is that the new sources have been added to what the app searches through, making album art searches much easier and faster. No more spotty Amazon album art.

Same with me, it crashes upon trying to get album art for a track. Though sometimes it does work. Perhaps 0.5 will be more stable.

It works for me ... but it has not found any artwork that could not get via FetchArt (i.e. Amazon) or Google.

I think the idea is to get higher-quality art.
