Editors' Review

+
Although iTunes has always been one of the best pieces of jukebox software available, the company continues to improve upon a great thing with version 5.0. The first major change that experienced iTunes users will notice is the revamped interface; the famous, brushed-metal look is gone, but the new look is even snazzier than before. That said, all the features we've loved from past versions are still intact, including seamless iPod integration, smart playlists, CD burning, label printing, the ability to rip files in multiple formats (except WMA), network sharing, and of course, the enormously successful iTunes Music Store. Integrated Podcasts, iTunes's last major innovation, are still in the house, as are a few new and notable features. Parents will appreciate the control tools that allow them to disable access to podcasts and the Music Store, as well as prevent kids from purchasing explicit songs. And all users will benefit from the new Smart Shuffle feature, which gives greater control over random play. Whether you're already among the converted or have yet to try this top-notch player, iTunes 5 should find a home on any music lover's computer.

Junk, non-intuitive, Only way to load shuffle. Supposed to be a Windows program, but prevented win2K from booting. Hate it in strongest terms, Someone please produce an alternative.

"The best Windows program. Period!"

October 09, 2005  |  By island_dude

 |  Version: iTunes for Windows 5.0.1

Pros

Everything!! Seemless integration with my iPod. I no longer buy CD's. I just buy songs from iTunes and they're there in iTunes with album art and they're there on my iPod as well.

Cons

The "look" of the newest version isn't as refined as previous versions.

"Not compatible with Windows"

October 07, 2005  |  By jayhawk123

 |  Version: iTunes for Windows 5.0.1

Pros

Internet streaming sound quality is good, attractive interface.

Cons

The required Quicktime installation takes over your computer like a virus. There is no way to make it work and play well with other applications. People gripe about Windows software that is overbearing but this is even worse. Quicktime forces everything to load in a browser window and is relatively poor quality. I've experienced this on a couple of machines. Windows users AVOID!!!

"Installs extra TSRs in this new version"

October 07, 2005  |  By hunter-killer

 |  Version: iTunes for Windows 5.0.1

Pros

Additional filtering on the searches.

Time remaining displayed simultaneously with time elapsed.

Slightly tidier looking skin.

Cons

Installs Bonjour service regardless if you want it or not and there is no option to remove this service. You need to be running with sufficient administrative privileges to install Bonjour. I found that it was constantly trying to access the net even when I disabled the network card. I would not have noticed it except it kept displaying some error message every few minutes. To get rid of this freebee from loading when you run iTunes replace the C:\Program Files\Bonjour\dns-sd.exe and the C:\Program Files\Bonjour\mDNSResponder.exe files with blank files. Deleting these files only causes iTunes to complain when you start it. If you don't need the iPod service you can replace the C:\Program Files\iPod\bin\iPodService.exe in the same way. These features should be allowed to be disabled from the iTunes menus or upon installation at the user's request.
