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 has added enhanced video capabilities, ringtone editing for the iPhone 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 bought 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, 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. Old popular features remain 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. The iTunes Store also offers DRM-free, higher sound quality songs, but they're more expensive than the standard $0.99, as are ringtones. Movie rentals start at $2.99, and can be purchased for $9.99.

Rounding out the feature set are parental controls, integrated podcasts, and a smart-shuffle option. iTunes is sometimes clunky on Windows, and can cause significant processor slowdowns. Still, it remains a top-notch player and iTunes 7 should find a home on any media junkie's computer.

"Reasonable media player"

March 02, 2008  |  By DaBlum

 |  Version: iTunes 7.6

Pros

It is fairly stable, plays and organizes music just as promised.

Cons

Plays a somewhat limited range of formats, advertisements.

Not easily customizable in terms of skinning and file organization.

Requires frequent and large updates, the program itself is something of a resource hog.

 |  Version: iTunes 7.6

Pros

I prefer media monkey and have switched. My favorite aspect of itunes was the search function.

Cons

-It doesn't play .wma and couldn't tell which files it wouldn't play

-I couldn't easily get album artwork

-I would end up with a music being referred to in my library and playlist several times, the program couldn't tell that I already had them in my library.

-itunes would take up a lot of memory

-syncing with ipod was very flexible

"LOVE IT!!"

February 07, 2008  |  By boogster2

 |  Version: iTunes 7.6

Pros

This is the best music player ever! I can even listen to LIVE radio! This kicks every other player's kid-friendly devices! Other players cripple your songs from your CD's.
