Editors' Review

+

Apple iTunes is the world's best-known MP3 software purveyor, certainly because of the millions of music-playing Apple devices it syncs, but also because it works just as well in non-Apple systems like Windows. Version 12 adds more emphasis on streaming, apps, and other media.

Pros

Apple polish: The clean, stylish Apple look not only makes iTunes 12 a standout on the Windows desktop but also keeps a big program (and big libraries) manageable.

Music: AAC, iTunes' standard encoding, sounds better than MP3, though iTunes plays most other formats. It finds and downloads album cover art, liner notes, lyrics, and more. You can rip your CDs to your iTunes library with a few clicks, too.

More than music: While music is still king, iTunes 12 deftly handles all kinds of media: movies, TV shows, Net radio, e-books, apps, podcasts, images, and more.

Cons

Intrusive extras: iTunes 12 installs extra software like Bonjour as well as drivers you may not need or want, such as Apple Mobile Device and iPod services. At least they're not added to Windows startup anymore, though iTunes still is.

Bottom Line

"New and improved" gets overused, especially in software, but iTunes 12 fits the bill. It's an evolution, not a revolution: It's still iTunes, and many will love or hate it. But Windows users who haven't bitten the Apple in a while should check out iTunes 12.

"Hate itunes 12.4"

May 18, 2016  |  By ealtynova

2016-05-18 08:43:34  |  By ealtynova

 |  Version: Apple iTunes 12.4.0.119

Pros

the parts that didn't change from 12.3

Cons

1) Please RESTORE THE OLD MEDIA TYPE TOOLBAR, all this new one has done is made more clicking and scrolling necessary. I prefer to have all media types that i use visible and easy to access (media types as well as devices, not just when in "music").
2) REALLY DISLKE the new sidebar, if apple won't restore the older version, at least allow us to customize the order of the lists in the side bar. I don't want "recently added" to be first and my full library is only number 4 in line. Yes, I know I can edit what's visible, but I shouldn't have to sacrifice having "artists" and "albums" visible in the sidebar, to be able to easily access my full library right away.
