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 accommodates 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 performing the same actions with music, so seasoned users will have no trouble (with fast broadband, movies download in about a half hour). With iTunes version 7.2, the option to buy higher quality, more expensive songs with no DRM is a necessary nod towards where the industry is going, but we wonder how it will be received by users.

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.

"Horrible Issues"

July 17, 2007  |  By Clintmax

 |  Version: iTunes for Windows 7.3

Cons

iTunes 7.3 completely re-arranged my music folder. Instead of opening my mp3 folder and seeing all of the songs alphabetically listed, iTunes created hundreds of little folders labelled with the artist names. Inside THOSE folders were MORE folders labelled with the album name, and then inside the album folders were the actual song files! If I had wanted my music listed that way, I would have set it up in that manner! I don't like software deciding FOR me!

Also, the actual song file names were all changed as well! I used to have them named like this:

"Van Halen - Jump"

Now, that same file is simply named:

"Jump"

So far, I can find no way to re-insert the artist names in the file name, except to go in and manually re-type them all over again by hi-lighting the file, right clicking, selecting "Rename" and then typing in the artist name. This will take me a while since I have several thousand music files that need to be re-named.

iTunes is GONE from my computer now, and it will NEVER return.

"It should integrate a plugin system instead increasing the size of the app!!"

July 13, 2007  |  By Calberto_Zero

 |  Version: iTunes for Windows 7.3

Pros

iTunes 6.X is tons better!!

Cons

It's completely awful to install an application with features that we don't need. For instance, if I don't have an Iphone why the driver has to be installed along with iTunes even if a don't have that phone!!!

There should be a plugin system so we could decide if we need certain feature. iTunes spends a lot of resources of your computer adding useless characteristics for the most of the users. Sorry, but I will downgrade to version 6.X

"Overhyped Apple Marketing Again"

July 12, 2007  |  By mdeley

 |  Version: iTunes for Windows 7.3

Pros

Great Search Engine, Nice playlist management

Cons

Doesn't play nice with other software at least on Windows machines. Takes over your CD/DVD programming - clashes with other data only burning software and complains if you over-ride it's ownership. Limited data formats - Apple claims it's the record companies demands for DRM - BS it serves them just as well to limit downloads to iPOD only. (I have an iPOD, but my kids don't so one of us gets screwed). Licensing on iTunes store - basically they can take back ownership anytime they want and leave you with nothing - that's their DRM for you. I think my complains are less about the software and more about how the software manages their profits and limits your rights to music you've purchased and refusal to integrate to non-Apple i-devices. Gimme a break.
