  1. Open the Mac App Store
  2. Press Option Key (alt/⌥) and keep it pressed for some seconds
  3. While clicking on Purchased

Analyze your music (listening habits) in iTunes

I stumble upon a great tool to analyze your iTunes library. It’s called SuperAnalyzer by the guys of nosleep.net. It’s written in Java and therefore platform independent (Mac OS X & Windows) and even open source under a GPL license, so you can add your own statistics there. Go get it! Here are some if its features:

  1. show the growth rate of your library
  2. how much songs are rated
  3. # of songs per genre/year
  4. listening times
  5. quality
  6. most played artists/genres/albums/songs
  7. all sorts of play counts
  8. most frequent song title names
  9. export statistics to pdf or html
  10. many more!!
