Batch Import: Use custom mask for metadata
#5
One thing that's nice about XML (versus CSV) is that it lends itself to hierarchical data. CSV works best for 2 dimensional data (i.e. rows and columns). So for example, when MobileSheets is updated to allow multiple artists for a song, this might be messy to handle in a CSV file (i.e. a semicolon separated list?), but it would be easy in XML. (I am probably preaching to the choir [ha!] for our program author)

Oh, one more note: if you have a recent version of Excel, it can load and save XML data (after you create an XML map), so an existing CSV file can easily be converted to XML.
