I am considering purchasing beaTunes, however, I cannot find out whether it can automatically identify songs that have Explicit language. Please advise.

    Hey David,

    I'm sorry, but beaTunes has no such feature.

    Hi Henrik,

    Any feature request possible regarding this feature please? IF songs are downloaded from iTunes, the ID tag "explicit" should be readable. For songs downloaded from Amazon, i do not know. And otherwise both iTunes and Spotify APIs offer the "explicit" boolean as a search result.

    Many thanks

    Hey Mikael,

    as far as I can tell Apple has given up on "explicit" markings in
    That said, such a feature will not be added in the foreseeable future. Perhaps at some point in v6, whenever that comes out.
