For those who are annoyed of missing artist pictures, this tool adds pictures from last.fm, your picture hub or any link to pictures from the web.

Informations on using the app:
-The artist may not be associated with any picture. It's not possible because the hacked method doesn't give us access to existing pictures. The tool can just add - no replacement - sorry
-The created dummyfiles are grouped in one album called ...dummy. Even you edited hundreds of artists in a row you can just delete the ...dummy album.
-using a high resolution and compression quality can result in glitchen and lags skipping to another artist during playback. The default settings works well but maybe you guys want to search for the optimal quality

Sounds like a great app but I've got a problem: When I open it I can choose the name of an artist but when I tap on a name just the name is shown on the screen and there are no pictures to choose from.
Do you have an idea what problem it could be?

EDIT: The phone isn't connected to my PC and I've got an internet connection on my phone via WLAN.

Sometimes it takes some time to load the images. How long did you wait?
