iTunes for Mac

CNET 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 adds 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, 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.

    "Frustration and disappointment"

    October 20, 2006  |   By Zipdude

    Version: iTunes 7.0.1

    Pros

    It would be good, if it worked

    Cons

    It would be nice:

    - If iTunes started when I connected my iPod, like it is supposed to.

    - If iTunes always noticed when I connect my iPod.

    - If iTunes could sync podcasts every day instead of just some days.

    - If iTunes could sync podcasts downloaded *after* I connected my iPod.

    - If iTunes could always disconnect the iPod automatically instead of just sometimes.

    - If podcasts I've listened to didn't sometimes appear as "unlistened to" after syncing.

    - If podcasts could always appear under "podcasts" on my iPod instead of elsewhere.

    - If music tracks didn't appear in the video playlists.

    How to summarize the iTunes user experience? - how about "Frustration and Disappointment"?

    "deletes songs, playlists, crashes constantly (Mac version)"

    October 12, 2006  |   By gemmamom

    Version: iTunes 7.0.1

    Pros

    Nothing at all!

    Cons

    May get through two songs before it crashes and it has deleted all my playlists and who knows how many songs. It won't run if I have anything at all (even just mail) running in the background. Do not give up version 6.0 if you haven't already (and send it to me! Apple appears to have discontinued it since their download of 6 doesn't work)...

    "Great Redesign, But Some Serious Execution Problems"

    October 4, 2006  |   By dahlen

    Version: iTunes 7.0.1

    Pros

    The redesign is fantastic. It is easier to sort through the various types of files (videos vs. music vs. podcasts vs. whatever), and the better integration of album art is visually appealing and helpful. Another HUGE plus is the integration of the iPod updater into the iTunes software.

    Cons

    Great in concept, but execution is flawed. For reasons I can't figure out, it sometimes - not always - takes forever to import a CD or sync up an iPod. The software also seems to suck up major system resources, slowing down my entire computer. I was hoping 7.0.1 would fix the initial iTunes 7 problems, but not yet. Hoping for them in 7.0.2.

    "CDs take FOREVER to import music into iTunes"

    October 3, 2006  |   By CyberDiva

    Version: iTunes 7.0.1

    Pros

    The iPod functions on the screen are helpful.

    Cons

    Want to import music from a CD into iTunes? Version 7.0 makes it go s-l-o-w-l-y. How slowly? How about 2 hours for a 3 minute track! I finally used MS Media Player to convert the tracks to mp3 and then imported them into iTunes -- I was done in 15 minutes. Hey Apple -- please fix this problem!
