iTunes 9.0.0

Sep 15, 2009 in , , , ,

I just downloaded it 5 mins ago, and I figured I'd do a review on it while I still remember what 8.9.9 is like.

First, here's how it looks like:

itunes,9.0.0,latest,version,new,music,songs,itunes dj

  • Most of the top bar has a different shade
  • The icons on the sidebar have more color, and they changed the playlist icon
  • Party Shuffle is now iTunes DJ
  • There is a new button called Home Sharing which let's you share your collection with other computers
  • Genius now has Genius Mixes
  • iTunes Store has been completely redone
I prefer the new version mostly because of the look of it, because I don't think I'll ever use Home Sharing. I love the new Genius because it seems much better. However, if you have Mac 10.5.6 like me, don't install it, because it requires Safari 4.0.3 to access the iTunes store. So now, I have to find iTunes 8.9.9 and install THAT because I don't have that version of Safari.

Edit: I finally got around to upgrading both, and the iTunes Store looks amazing now.
