      iTunes is a music application from Apple. It is embedded in your “dock” when you purchase Apple computers. It is also available for Windows computers. This application is free and if there is an important purpose aside from organizing your music, it is the direct link to iTunes store. It provides a direct access to iTunes giving all information you need when it comes to entertainment. iTunes store is complete with TV shows, music, movies and podcasts. It also has the ability to connect to radios if you want live streaming via the internet. You can purchase music on retail if your budget will only allow you a dollar or more than a dollar.

      iTunes though is a different software. It has a different purpose other than having iTunes Store. It is your gateway between downloading songs and transferring it to your iPod, iPod Touch and your music organizing partner

      in all your Apple computers. If you are an iPod enthusiast, iTunes is always your partner.

      One of the most notable change that was introduced with iTunes 10 is the new icon. It retained the original symbol but now the music notes is enclosed in a circle and the background is blue while the music notes is darker in shade. I did not like the new logo, it was not the usual Apple philosophy. I wanted the original since it speaks with simplicity and it captures the features of iTunes.

      As to features, iTunes 10 does not have something significant. Perhaps there are few features that were incorporated but it was not really a big deal for me. With this version, there is already a direct link to the music social media, “Ping”. There are added bonus features and this version is more up-to-date.

      My biggest dismay was on the interface.

      • My entire impression of this updated version is—it is very confusing and disorganized which is again it runs counter to Apple’s consistent take on simplicity and ease of use.

        The buttons to “minimize”, “close” and “resize” the iTunes window was arranged vertically. It too difficult to press each button with accuracy because of how closely arranged they are. I would have preferred the horizontal arrangement.

        There was no big deal with the pages on the left because everything is the same except of course for “Ping” which is located just below ” iTunes Store”. I did not like how they fattened the volume control. It was not beautiful to look at and this was not the style of Apple.

        The entire library was utterly disorganize too and I did not like it as well. First, the utilized the first column from the left for sorting out the songs by the name

        of the album. I really did not get what was the purpose for this. You do not check the song first by the name of the album. This portion is also colored differently and you can really spot the difference from the rest of the library. Now looking at the entire library is not effortless. You need to go through everything again to familiarize yourself and it was too tedious for me. I would have wanted the previous version because it was seamless, easy to familiarize and impressively organized.

        In an attempt to look new, the common and most use buttons are rearranged and it resulted in disgruntled interface. In my opinion, it was best if they retained a new format with more modern features because Apple always goes by the principle that their products and applications are easy to use. This was not and being the latest version, this was frustrating.
