Good news for itunes lovers: iTunes 9 Launched Today!!
With due fanfare, Apple finally unveiled iTunes 9 at the Rock and Roll event yesterday. Its media management software is now available for download on PC and Mac. Apparently, the leaked pictures showing the social network integration feature finally saw daylight. The all new iTunes 9 comes with a cleaner polished look, navigational improvement, tweaked icons and a redesigned iTunes Store.
Packing a number of new features, the iTunes 9 is touted to improve the music and movies experience. Apple CEO Steve Jobs heartily boasted about the new Genius Mixes feature that is like having a personal DJ which automatically generates 12 endless song mixes from the iTunes library. Genius Mixes feature also categorizes movies and the apps installed on the iPhone or the iPod Touch.
New Home Sharing feature now allows copying music, movies and TV shows across from up to five authorized home computers. Possession of iTunes Music Store account is must for the Home Sharing. By sharing the iTunes libraries to the authorized computers, users can drag-n-drop content from one library to other or stream the content.
Application Management feature comes quite handy for managing and organizing the applications in the iTunes itself! The new iTunes interface appears after hooking iPhone or iPod Touch with the Home Screen of the device and rearrange location of the applications on the iPhone or iPod Touch devices. Note that using Application Management requires the device to run iPhone OS 3.1 software on it.
Apple has given the iTunes Store a make-over and the experience has been improved with new artist, movie, TV pages and better navigation. In the redesigned iTunes Store, Apple introduces iTunes LP that will bring expanded media content which will be similar on purchase of an LP record. Music and Movies will feature rich content (audio, video, images, liner notes, and more) only on full-album purchase or movies purchases.
iTunes LP debut albums include Bob Dylan's "Highway 61 Revisited," Norah Jones' "Come Away With Me," The Grateful Dead's "American Beauty" and Dave Matthews Band's "Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King: iTunes Pass."
Just like the iTunes LP, movies get iTunes Extras which is similar to the DVD's special section featuring additional content related to the movie. The iTunes Extras will have deleted scenes, documentaries, interviews and interactive galleries starting with movies Twilight, Batman Begins, Wall-E, Iron Man and The Da Vinci Code.
Apart from that, the much touted integration for social media has been added to the iTunes 9 software but it is only applicable to the albums, songs, and downloads available in the iTunes store. As for the third party media player support, Apple once again axed Palm Pre Media Sync support.
