iTunes 8: ALL the love!

Filed under: Uncategorized — castlewriter @ 8:03 pm

You?ve probably seen the screenshots — here?s another one, ?cause I love to show off:


Okay, okay, quit starin? at my albums — and stare at my albums! That?s the new ?Grid? view. Notice that with the buttons top center, I can organize it by Albums, Artists, Genres or Composers. Honestly, I have no idea what Composers is for — maybe soundtracks.Notice too the ?Genius? sidebar on the right. Handy for those of us who like a certain ?sound? but aren?t picky about the artist. I found Celldweller, for example, as a Genius sidebar suggestion derived from the highlighted album ?2 Days or Die? by Atlas Plug (you can see that album highlighted in blue.

Everything Apple did right in iTunes 7.7 — and that was plenty — has been kept in iTunes 8, but one-upped by the new Grid view and Genius functionality. Is it any wonder iTunes dominates the digital media marketplace?
