Im 44 and lived back in the age of walk mans with the cassette tape. Obviously I had to join the real world and get an Ipod where I would have to use Itunes servie. Songs are pretty easy to find but I have the hardest time , every time, loading them on to my ipod. I think the site could be more user friendlly.
I don't use Apple products precisely because of this nanny knows best software. It works very well but the job it does is not focused on providing the consumer with choice and a great player it is focused on providing the highest possible revenue to Apple. There ought to be a middle way.
Their selection is still a little wonky (though still huge). It's still not a convincing way to buy music for some people and it feels a little boxed in by weird contracts with artists. Still doesn't feel like a record store.
Almost impossible to actually raise an issue when something goes wrong with a purchase - I'm sure there are ways to contact them but they make it SO difficult. So many minor annoyances when using iTunes but the major one is feeling completely isolated with nowhere to turn when something wont download. Also worth mentioning the constant annoyance of having to update my billing details EVERY TIME I buy something! Yes, I purchased from another device! - isn't it obvious by now I have an iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch that I buy from?
First off, I do purchase my music, but the prices on itunes are just off-putting sometimes. I would go for the occasional album, but they just don't seem to be throwing a lot of offers out there nowadays.
It can also be frustrating to search for music on their site and find out that they don't have it.
What else can you say about a company and a service that single-handedly changed the game in terms of purchasing and listening to music. And, in doing so, helped artists to collect their well-deserved fees instead of music pirates who were infiltrating the music distribution business.
Music is my life and without it my life would be alot more dull. Thanks to itunes I enjoy my favorite music daily. I'm very grateful for this gift so thank you itunes. Easy, convenient, reliable, and informational. What more could you ask for
Too memory hungry under windows and the interface is just too complicated. won't do what you want it to do. just does what apple want it to do. It's My IPhone, I paid for it and I should be able to decide what I want on it!
Buying music used to be such a chore and would often lead to paying silly money for all kinds of import charges, and fees and all sorts of clap-trap. This incredible site though lets you browse and get hold of all kinds music that simply you just couldn't find anywhere else. Wonderful music and a great selection, so easy to use and really, compared to what we used to pay, so cheap too. If they only had a bigger Artie Shaw selection I'd be in heaven.
