iTunes lets you create your own personal digital music library, allowing you to manage and play your music collection with drag-and-drop simplicity. iTunes, the software part of the equation that lets you pack 7,500 songs in your pocket, automatically synchronizes with the sensational new iPod at high speeds over FireWire. iTunes gives you the ability to generate dynamic Smart Playlists that reflect your preferences and listening habits. With iTunes it's easy to create CDs that play back on in your car, your home stereo, Macs and on Windows-based PCs. iTunes 4 adds the ability to share music among your Macs, play and encode AAC files, and view album art.

From my point of view it's some part of an evil plan to slow down & disable windows PC's so their hapless owners turn to the jolly land of Apple in desperation to get a working computer - Adds over twenty seven billion registry entries in an attempt to stop your PC ever working again. (Remember once iTunes is on your PC it's on for good)

Installed on Windows 10, Program bombs when running due to missing files. I uninstalled until Apple corrects the install. I have always had problems with Apple software running on my Hp Laptop..Something is always missing when installing.products...wonder if anyone checks these apps before they are released to the public?

What’s new in iTunes 12.2

iTunes 12.2 brings support for listening to Beats 1 live Internet radio programming, as well as for streaming songs through Apple Music.

You will notice a brand new For You section which lets you browse songs Apple thinks you’ll love, based on your taste and past listening history. In addition to For You, another section labeled New provides a curated selection of new song and album releases.

Lastly, there’s a Connect section where you can check out additional materials artists may post for music lovers to enjoy, such as lyrics, photo galleries, behind-the-scene videos, additional recordings and more.

The three new sections are also available on iOS 8.4’s revamped Music app.

This version of itunes is severely dammaged. Once installed it works correctly for only the first intstall, then immediately throws an error "The Program
can't start because GNSDK_MANAGER.DLL is missing from the computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.

If you are having playback problems (choppy, garble, jumps) with iTunes 12.1 for Windows, then download and install the version 'for old video cards'.
Installing that resolved my issue with the above.
Otherwise same old.
If you have iTunes in your Windows taskbar and open it, you will have two icons. When you upgrade it will remove the taskbar icon and leave a 'blank file' icon instead. Little annoyances but if you bought into the Apple eco system, this is the most convenient way to deal with your devices and purchases.

Ok Installed Apple Itunes 12.0.1; visual not an amazing change, but the new get info box where you enter corrections or amendments to the song titles or tag songs that have no information is to put it is a big bunch of dodo. You enter Peter and then use the space bar, and it auto fills the area with the first artist on your list that matches the words, you cannot functionally use the space bar, so each and every entry you have to either highlight the second incorrect word, or say sod it and leave your entry as Peter Bardens for all the songs with the first name Peter.
Being a musician who creates music, and my name being Robert, I don't want all the music I created attributed to a Mr Fripp.... So a big thumbs down from me.

Installed the Mac version, and got problems right away (something to do with a USB controller kext (kernel extension) not having installed as it should, and basically, my iPhone is recognized, but the content show as "Other" for all of the occupied space, so I'm going to forego install on my PC.

I think a 11.4.1 is already in the works at Cupertino...

Pros: v12.7.0.166

Control of playlists, can't think for much else

Cons: What NO more apps, the whole app control interface has been removed, leaves behind Gigabytes of ipa files, so the average user wouldn't know what to do with them, no 'would you like to delete them' prompt.

Also as a person who likes to install their Windows programs into custom locations, the installation program has a major issue that's return from 2006, having reported it on release day, no feedback from Apple, once installed the program will complain about the 'CD Configuration' folder being missing, simple move it from their hardcoded location folder to your new location, fancy a large corporation not testing custom locations

Bottom Line: Cutting edge or bleeding edge that is the question

Slick. Not sleek. Not at all. Slow as hell, every move is cumbersome. Would anyone use it if it was not Apple-designed?

In its quest to achieve mass appreciation, Apple has truly screwed this one up. The most unintuitive program I've ever come across, truly pathetic. Try iTools instead (it still requires this garbage to be installed tho):

11.3.1 stops responding and crashes shortly after launch on my Win7 x64. Even an uninstall/reinstall didn't solve the problem. Had to revert to 11.3.0 to fix.
