Is it possible to edit MP3 tags for songs in the library on a WP8 phone?

I currently have a WP 7.5 phone and it doesn't seem possible to do so on there, so alternatively: Is there an app which supports this? Ideally, the updated info would then sync back to the PC library via zune.

    Your question title mention WP8, your question mention WP7 too and you added both tags. Can you clarify your question? Looks like you really want solve a problem with WP7. The answer for both versions probably will be different since they sync different. May 30 '13 at 13:06

The name of this is ID3 tag.

You can edit ID3 tags of mp3 files with Windows Phone 8.

I found at least two options: Mu5ic Download5 and Download5

I can't find one for Windows Phone 7.5 but you can do this directly in Zune before send it to the phone.

I found an even better one called Music Import http://www.windowsphone.com/s?appid=195ebeaa-95ae-4876-81b9-a463098d42de it finds a load more songs than Mp3 Finder too!


If you have a computer or laptop and a USB cord you can go to file explorer and click windows phone then open the music file and start renaming this is one of the easiest way for me.
