iTunes Folder Watch is a tiny and practical software tool that acts as a companion for iTunes. It's capable of synchronizing all files from a monitored directory with the iTunes library, and it comes in handy to all users who have experienced issues with this built-in feature of the media player.

Setting up the app is a fast and simple job that doesn't require special attention. It's wrapped in a user-friendly interface made from a standard window split into multiple panes, dedicated to the folders monitor, new tracks detection, exclusions, and program configuration.

You can include as many watch folders as you want, as well as include or exclude subdirectories. From this point on, iTunes Folder Watch automatically checks them for new songs and adds them to the iTunes library with minimum effort.

It's possible to manually check for new tracks anytime, and exclude any subfolders from the given directories. The tool can be asked to automatically add the new tracks without your intervention, begin background monitoring on each system startup, check for dead tracks as soon as it gets launched, as well as add folders to exclusions right after importing them to avoid detecting them as new again.

Plus, you can modify the checkup frequency, create a list with audio extensions to take into account, change the default iTunes XML location, resolve drive mappings, and so on.

No error dialogs were shown in our tests, and the application didn't freeze or crash. It left a small footprint on system resources, using low CPU and RAM. Help documentation is available.

Taking into account its advanced and straightforward options, iTunes Folder Watch delivers a convenient solution to all users looking to automatically add all new songs from a monitored directory to the iTunes library.
