The worst program on my computer

about iTunes · · Helpful Not helpful 2 Helpful

So many annoyances, so little time. Slow, bulky, difficult to use/navigate, and works VERY poorly with my iPod and iPhone. It insists on keeping copies of everything, saves music to weird folders, and just has NO idea how to let me manually manage my devices, which invariably have FAR less space than my full music collection. Apple cut off all other managers years ago and basically made this garbage program the only gateway to their reasonably good hardware. If I never use this program again, it'll be a good day.

The worst piece of software in the history of mankind

I don't really know how Apple could release this. This is the sloppiest piece of software stuffed with unrelated features and insanely hungry for resources. Simply forget about running it if you're on a battery.

Terrible

about iTunes · · Helpful Not helpful 1 Helpful

So terrible, I have iPhone but i don't use it since i bought it and restored it and then uninstalled it. I install apps from appstore, I prefer to buy/download musics by third party apps instead of iTunes. iTunes is really slow, User Interface is not too bad. But syncing and copying files are really slow. I purchased a file manager and i import music to my iPhone without cable or iTunes. So easier than importing to library, Syncing then preventing to connect to other PCs because of music loss.

I uploaded video content to itunes. Some of it is in home videos, some in tv shows, and others just all over the place. Can't it all go to one place!?!?

iTunes alternative that supports multiple genre tagging?

about iTunes · · Helpful Not helpful 1 Helpful

I'm ready to ditch iTunes for a lighter, simpler music player - Ecoute, Vox, Tomahawk & Clementine all look good to me - but the one feature I REALLY want in my music player, aside from smart playlists, is the ability to tag songs with multiple genres.

Can anyone recommend a player - one of the ones I mentioned, or another one entirely - that has this feature? So sick of agonising over assigning genres and losing hours of my life! Thanks!

The UI is terrible

about iTunes and Zune Software · · Helpful Not helpful 1 Helpful

It feels like a file browser, it doesn't feel like a media player. It's also got some strange quirks, like, if you edit the metadata outside of iTunes, it won't recognize it immediately on its own. The Zune desktop software, on the other hand, always checks for changes. If you're on Windows and you want to try something else for browsing and listening to music, I strongly recommend that you try out the Zune software. Even though Groove Music has sort of taken over, the software is still available and works fine. Just note that you obviously can't sync to your iPhone with it.

  1. iPhone is still tied to computer. It is sad. Result of Apple services monopoly - is minor number of custom players in iTunes store. You are to listen via standart Music App. You are to buy Music in apple's store or to syncronize with computer
  2. Well, to all the above it is glitchy and sluggish

A grand media player (though broken for Windows)

about iTunes and PotPlayer · · Helpful Not helpful

I am a huge fan of all Apple products and software (they're just so meticulously designed, beautiful and purposeful). iTunes is a fantastic app for both managing media and enjoying it. The built-in Store is just a huge bonus.

Two problems with iTunes:

  1. Application opening performance in Windows- Opening iTunes in Windows is a big deal! Once you do, don't close it, just minimize it.
  2. Lack of codec support- If you have multimedia files in different formats and codecs, iTunes is just not the media player for you, especially with all the free open source media players hitting the web.

But those things aside, it is a stellar app, which makes even more sense on Mac OS X. I could try recommending other players, but they're nowhere near easy to use and beautifully designed. Though I would like to recommend Pot Player -- A player that reads even more formats than VLC (that's right), gets frequent updates, mind-bogglingly feature packed and amazingly customizable. It too has problems though - no library management and a horrible user interface.

Okay if it works for you

about iTunes and Clementine, Winamp, CopyTrans · · Helpful Not helpful

It doesnt do it for me, I dont see myself getting another iPod so I guess im done with iTunes and all the times since I first used it, it has given me problems. It is indeed slow, not sure about how slow it may be on Macs. Its heavy and just always gets in my way.

Hate itunes

about iTunes · · Helpful Not helpful

One of the reasons I hate apple products, itunes software. :/

I totally approve. it's slow, inconsistent, may be hazardous to your music collection, etc...
Its clear that the main purpose is to make you BUY at apple store, not to manage your collection eg noway to retrieve covers, words, etc..
And the player itself is crappy: you cant handle your collection while playing a playlist, it will be interrupted evry time you select a tune..
The only good thing is the AirPlay feature... when it works...

iTunes is a powerful media manager for Mac. It's slow on windows.

Obey.

It is a nice program, nice GUI, and layout. But it is just another way for apple to have control over everyone, you will do everything their way, how they want. And being most of us use Ipods, we don't even have a choice. Think about it.

about iTunes · · Helpful Not helpful

iTunes is one of the worst music apps I've ever used. Even the old real jukebox was better. People only like it because it's Apple.

It's very buggy and slow (on Windows and OSX). The interface is quite primitive compared to it's competitors. You give up you Personal info, and it's impossible to use Music you buy with it if you start using a new device (e.g. when your iPod stops working and you have to replace it)

Like other commenters here, I've also had it destroy all the meta data from my music library.
