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.

The worst program on my computer

about iTunes · · Helpful Not helpful 6 Helpful Report as spam

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.

I had to format my iPod 2 times because it just won't connect to iTunes. Using google play music is way too convenient and try using saavn too

Terrible

about iTunes · · Helpful Not helpful 3 Helpful Report as spam

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.

Overall, I find iTunes to be a functional hub for my iOS devices on Windows. However, as a standalone media library and player, its sluggishness and antiquated design often leave much to be desired. It's not explicitly bad, but there are much more feature rich and better performing music library apps out there for Windows. These include the likes of Small foobar2000 iconfoobar2000 and Small Clementine iconClementine.

Also, though I don't have personal experience with it, many AlternativeTo users also recommend Small MusicBee iconMusicBee for its minimal user interface and rapid synchronization times.

iTunes seems to be working per normal. Why are people saying its been discontinued? It works the way it always has!

iTunes works great if you own other Apple products- iPhones, iPods, iPads. If not, I suppose Spotify would be a better bet.

I hate it. I have my iphone but the process of taking is not easy nor fast. If you are not purchasing the music from there, then is really difficult to set up. I don't like, takes time and it is simply not worth it. Worst part of apple is this software.

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 Report as spam

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 Report as spam

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.

Hate itunes

about iTunes · · Helpful Not helpful Report as spam

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.
