New iTunes Finally Released
Apple has finally released a major update to its flagship media app iTunes last week, to positive reviews from the technology press. It was originally scheduled for an October release, but was delayed when Apple claimed it needed "a little extra time to get it right" and almost missed its second deadline of releasing it inside November. While the development rush has left it with some obvious bugs, tech reviewers has generally welcomed the improvements in design and speed. Notable features include a powerful new mini-player, instant search results and artwork analysis to customise the design to each album (see the image below). "The first thing you notice when you fire up iTunes 11 is that it's so much faster than its predecessor. So fast. We can't believe it's iTunes," said Gizmodo. Others made similar praise, but highlighted several bugs which will presumably be ironed out in a future update. Apple has been in discussions with major labels to prepare some sort of streaming on digital radio service, but details are scarce and some reports suggest Apple has found it hard to negotiate a deal that it is happy with. Have you tried the new iTunes update? Do you like the improvements, or have you already moved on to streaming services like Spotify or Rdio? Let us know how you listen to music on your computer in the comments.
