Editors' Review

+

Although iTunes has always been one of the best pieces of jukebox software available, the company improved upon a great thing with version 7, which added enhanced video capabilities and new ways to view your music library. A cleaned-up left sidebar makes finding your music and videos a snap and the new Album and Cover-Flow view options let you flip through CDs in style. The built-in video player accomodates both your own files and ones you buy at the iTunes Store; right-clicking a clip lets you render it iPod-compatible. With the addition of full-length movies at the iTunes Store (Music is no longer part of the name), you can now view near-DVD quality movies at a resolution of 640x480. The experience of both purchasing and playing movies and videos is almost identical to perfoming the same actions with music, so seasoned users will have no trouble (with fast broadband, movies download in about a half hour).

All the features we love 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 Store. Rounding out the feature set are parental controls, integrated podcasts, and a smart-shuffle option. Whether you're already among the converted or have yet to try this top-notch player, iTunes 7 should find a home on any media junkie's computer.

"You Really Have No Choice"

April 19, 2007  |  By Brian_Watters

 |  Version: iTunes for Windows 7.1

Pros

For use with my iPod, this program works very well, never had any problems. If you have an iPod, you had better download a version of iTunes.

Great equalizer (10-band).

But there is just so much room for improvement.

Cons

Media LIBRARY? Pain in the rear. I already know what songs I have, and where they are on my computer. No thank you.

Playlists? I don't like them, I prefer to sort my songs into different folders on my desktop (a much more stable way to sort your songs). This forces you to use playlists on your iPod, you can't make folders. It is sooo backwards.

Furthermore, songs are NOT saved onto the iPod as mp3s or wmas, they are saved as junk files (which play just fine) but can't be copied directly onto a computer without going through some stupid program, like iTunes.

Plus the program LOOKS like Mac, not Windows. But I can live with that.

This IS a good program (plus you basically have to use it), but they could do so much better. Still prefer Winamp for audio and GOM player for video.

"Without question the very worse software on the planet"

April 15, 2007  |  By mikeb5984

 |  Version: iTunes for Windows 7.1

Pros

Not a chance. Itunes has NO redeeming features. There is not one good thing about it - oh, hold on a sec, it has an UNinstaller. THAT's a GOOD thing!

Cons

Free at last, Free at last, Thank Anapod Explorer, I'm FREE at LAST!

No more itoons and no more quicktime. They're uninstalled.

First, one star selected because we do not have minus star options. I've tolerated itoons for the very last day. When version 7.1.1 installed a quicktime object in IE 7 to play ALL media files in IE and did not ASK me if this was OK, I lost it. And then they did not give us an option to disable quicktime and re-enable WMP. MICROSOFT gave us an option in IE to disable the quicktime object, but media files just choked looking for qt. And THEN they laughed at me on the phone when I called Apple's quicktime support line, at my expense, and asked them how to remove the qt object and reinstall WMP in IE. What arrogance!

Itunes is slow to load, (V_E_R_Y S_L_O_W), not at all easy to use, not intuitive, does not do 30% of the things a good media manager program should do and....it's WORSE hindrance is it's dependance on Quicktime, the single worse media player available anywhere for any price. Really Apple people (users) you've elevated mediocrity to a new height with all the high praise you've given Quicktime. As I think back on the time when I had itoons installed I cannot think of one thing I thought had merit about the software. It's a lot more trouble than it is worth. My ipod was going on the shelf until Anapod saved it.

"Great for Music...not so good on video."

April 11, 2007  |  By robert.allen

 |  Version: iTunes for Windows 7.1

Pros

The interface is clean, simple, easy to understand. The way it organizes your MP3's once you import them into your music library is perfect. Excellent communication with iPod and Apple TV.

Cons

Watching videos and video podcasts is almost impossible to do without making you want to pull your hair out. The video freezes up and skips. I'm guessing it doesn't fully utilize QuickTime's video engine correctly...if not at all. Through every version iTunes releases, it still seems to get better...but I'm still finding myself opening a video in QuickTime or Media Player to watch without any interruptions.

"Only if you own an iPod or buy music from iTunes store"

April 11, 2007  |  By setonfire

 |  Version: iTunes for Windows 7.1

Pros

The Cover flow feature of iTunes 7 is a new and beautiful way to browse through your music collection. Album art can be downloaded from the iTunes store(you must have an iTunes account for that though)

Cons

I must say I was seriously disappointed with this software. The Editor called it one of the best jukeboxes around. However it has nothing great in it. Just plays your audio. No great features. Secondly, this software consumes a lot of memory. It took up 43mb of my ram. Winamp uses just 8mb. You can get cover art from the iTunes store but then again you need to have an account for that.

"still not am itunes fan, however......."

April 08, 2007  |  By wileyjan

 |  Version: iTunes for Windows 7.1

Pros

i'm not exactly reviewing this newest version. just stating the obvious with all apps of it's kind. as zunes has been out a while now, we see that the zune software suffers the same problems as itunes. so instead of taking sides on which app is better. let me state the obvious. since the riaa knew that itunes and zune would be the kings of online music programs, they've made the drm so invasive it's impossible (or at last near) for apple or microsoft to deal with. i've noticed napster, and urge suffering the same problems. and the truth is the blame lies more with the riaa than the software vendors. they want to and seem to, at least so far, to be able to force these apps to conform to what they (riaa) demand.

so now kaspersky has confirmed the first malware aimed directly at ipods. being no fan of ipods, i think i speak objectively when i say it's despicable to aim malware at people trying to listen to music or watch a video. and don't think for a minute that sony/bmg doesn't stil have cd's with rootkits floating around. no problem, i am armed to the max against any malware. i am now on a buying binge of sony/bmg cd's. should i find one with a rootkit. i will take the appropriate action needed to once again force sony to suffer huge losses again. notice the big price drops on several sony products related to it's game systems. no choice people are fed up with sky high prices, and unreasonable eula's.

Cons

well......... i ranted, but the riaa has been alowed too much power for too long. now it's crippling our software!
