    "iConsider it one of the best around"

    August 9, 2005  |   By cnetfan86

    Pros

    Extremeley easy to use from the very start! The free version offers a library, Podcasts, shuffle, equalizer, visualizer, artist's artwork, radio, iTunes music store, default playlists, make your own playlist, music import function, convert to AAC, quick browse through your media by genre, artist or album, and burn. Using each of the features is neat because it's not only easy, but fun to use. An external QuickTime to play videos and PictureViewer is also included part of the pack. Those who can afford to buy music & the full program can easily enjoy finding, downloading, customizing, & burning effortlesly, as well as not having to worry using any other software by doing so. The full version also includes joining songs together & little stuff like that. For free it's worth the try. (If you enjoy using iTunes, you will love OSX.)

    Cons

    However, iTunes limits the amount of features that are available on its competitors. There is only one color & one skin to chose from, limited choices to convert file types, can only play music & nothing else like DVDs (I guess that's why it's not called iMedia) and no cover designer. Even though QuickTime takes care of the movie problem, it should have an option to actually be part of iTunes. Also, lower end computers may not be fully compatible becuase it takes up more memory than its competitors. If you prefer features that iTunes doesnt have, then you probably wont like iTunes. RealPlayer and newer burning software like Nero excells at what iTunes cant accomplish.
