itunes 12.7

Computer Active (UK) - - Best Free Software - What you need: Win­dows 7, 8/8.1 or 10

We usu­ally rec­om­mend pro­grams on the grounds that they have added fea­tures, not taken some away. But Ap­ple’s itunes is dif­fer­ent. Over the years, the once-slick mu­sic and movie player has be­come bloated – to the point where even most die-hard iphone and ipad users find it im­pos­si­ble to use. But, with ver­sion 12.7, Ap­ple has fi­nally started to cut some of the fat. Specif­i­cally, the App Store has been com­pletely re­moved (which makes sense, given that IOS apps don’t even run in Win­dows) and the point­less abil­ity to sync your apps and ring­tones with your PC has been axed. itunes U ed­u­ca­tional con­tent has been moved to the Pod­casts li­brary, too. We still have a num­ber of gripes with itunes – the way it han­dles album cover art, for in­stance, is still as frus­trat­ing as ever – but re­fo­cus­ing it on mu­sic and movie play­back is a step in the right di­rec­tion.
