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 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.

Purchasing and playing videos is almost identical to performing the same actions with music, so seasoned users will have no trouble. The workflow is equally similar for purchasing and installing iPhone applications from the App Store. 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.

    "iTunes"

    July 26, 2008  |   By Tingly Jon

    Version: iTunes 7.7

    Pros

    What I like about the software? That it puts the stuff on my iPod that I want on it.

    Cons

    Despite doing what it recommends in help section any videos I have are always converted to mi iPod without sound. True I could convert them but I shouldn't have to. It is also SLOW, very slow infact and I have to spend a good amount of time scrolling through my 100+ Cradle of Filth songs. I know it's not my laptops performance becuase it works fine with everything else I have on here. It is also bland and uninteresting, I think personally. Get iTunes only if you have an iPod or similar.

    "Horrific"

    July 25, 2008  |  

    Version: iTunes 7.7

    Cons

    Do NOT upgrade to 7.7. Wait until a new version. I spent days trying to make it work, finally having to restore my Ipod 4 separate times after all songs were grayed out and useless (when ITunes finally saw my Ipod). ITunes freezes, corrupts playlists, makes your Ipod a useless piece of junk. See the ITunes Forum at Apple.com for further information.

    "Bloated Crap"

    July 25, 2008  |   By crevelingm

    Version: iTunes 7.7

    Pros

    Good for converting files and playing most types of audio.

    Cons

    Extremely bloated, memory hog. Installs multiple startup tasks without asking. Takes forever to load. Use WINAMP!

    "A great piece of MP3 genius!"

    July 23, 2008  |   By -Death Phoenix-

    Version: iTunes 7.7

    Pros

    iTunes is simply the best MP3 freeware out and barely anyone appreciates it for all it't worth. iTunes has a very user-friendly interface and you are able to make different playlists in folders will be easily located on the actual iPod itself. I cannot find any fault with sound or graphics if you like playing movies but if you do, GET SOME NEW SPEAKERS!

    Cons

    The only con which I valiantly protest against is that iTunes is sort of a resource hog but heres the twist. WHOEVER HAS THIS PROBLEM, GET MORE RAM AND THEN YOU WON'T BE ARGUING!

    "Best Media Player Period"

    July 22, 2008  |   By Clockpuppet

    Version: iTunes 7.7

    Pros

    It may not play all the formats, which is a bummer, but I use MP3 anyway. Simple efficient and elegant sums up iTunes.

    Cons

    No support for non-apple non-mp3 formats

    Protected AAC enabled by default

    Downloads from the store still mostly protected AAC

    "All My Songs on ITunes are Limited to DRM but 3rd Part Software Can Remove DRM"

    July 22, 2008  |   By osxxp

    Version: iTunes 7.7

    Pros

    iTunes free software for iTunes is widely used by most Mac users but now Apple's music is also available for Windows Media. iTunes software was hard to grasp until I figured out it is so simple. All the music sits in one place, the library and you can make playlists of any songs in the library. Enjoy your playlist on the computer or the playlists can be burned to CD/DVD used in iPods or any MP3 player etc.,

    Cons

    As it says in the review, "The iTunes Store also offers DRM-free, higher sound quality songs, but they're more expensive than the standard $0.99" It seems the only music I want is the 99 cent kind and that means the music will have Digital Rights Management (DRM). I'd be happy to pay the higher price to get my music free of DRM. Since Apple does not offer all its music without DRM some people feel justified in using any of the many home grown programs which can be used to convert the DRM songs to plain old simple unfettered MP3s.
