  • haysey84 Jason Haysey (@haysey84) reported from Islington, England

    I've not been on the apple train since... 2007 I think, when iTunes was slowing down my pc. I'm pretty happy I moved away 👍

  • soamaziing3 Money Mitch (@soamaziing3) reported

    @KodyTweeting You can’t even download music straight to your phone without a streaming service or purchasing from iTunes. Droids you can download torrents, unzip rar files, change the layout even of your home page for basics... list goes on

  • scrumpts_food scrumpts (@scrumpts_food) reported

    @IWomenMin @iTunes @imac It is working for me now (previously had problems)!

  • edreschka elianadrescher (@edreschka) reported

    @prettyboyshav @_indify my memories of senior year are just a montage of speeding down post road, scaring my friends, with the channel orange CD i burned off my itunes playing out of the '94 station wagon. good times

  • grilledcheas Left Blank (@grilledcheas) reported

    @79stanger @BigDogBo @Mindyloowho2 Yeah if I come across one of these I'm definitely down to try the project, especially if I'm already using iTunes. It's more convenient to have one device but I still miss having a dedicated music player

  • neewerofficial Neewer® (@neewerofficial) reported

    @CContortions @iTunes No problem! 😊

  • DanielJHall Daniel Hall (@DanielJHall) reported

    @davemark My partner had the same issue, it kept asking for my iTunes credentials. The usual sign out, restart, sign in didn’t work. Ended up being a full iPhone restore from backup. Nuke the site from orbit, it’s the only way to be sure

  • TSGates_ Tyler Gates (@TSGates_) reported

    @TheRickReddy @aaronbuley Dude! Thanks. Definitely going to look into that. The drive I put in my old gen 5 worked, but iTunes wouldn't format it. Just kept getting errors.

  • ShillyMingz mfumz (@ShillyMingz) reported

    One spelling error, iTunes won’t detect the track! Grow up

  • SawftFox The fennec with impressive ears (@SawftFox) reported

    I took my ambien years ago and got so upset that the movie wasn’t on any streaming service that I bought it on iTunes. :|

  • blm849 Bernie Michalik (@blm849) reported

    @tinapittaway @lizrenzetti @WIRED The other issue is ones that have subscription fees your guys don’t know about but download using your iTunes account.

  • twolouist noe (@twolouist) reported

    i dont know if i should pay for spotify or for itunes first world problems

  • shreya18495 Shreya (@shreya18495) reported

    Have subscribed for alt balaji and did payment for 3 months through itunes but when i try to play it shows that i need to take the subscription. I tried multiple times by logging in and out but the problem still persists. @altbalaji

  • JonnyRock80 Jonny (@JonnyRock80) reported

    @Leicester_Numan @businessinsider IPod supports WAV, Mp3, AAC and ALAC (which is now open source) depending on the model. And iTunes can convert WMA on Windows. I don't see the issue

  • lwtzwalls San (@lwtzwalls) reported

    They’re setting him for failure up as much as I want to hope that they are planning something it’s nothing but only fan service to same uk girlies that cant even stream or make his songs stay on iTunes.

  • ThumperComet Pete (@ThumperComet) reported

    @BryanUpfield iTunes on PC was terrible. It was great on a mac.

  • BryanUpfield bryan upfield (@BryanUpfield) reported

    Ipod great. iTunes was TERRIBLE

  • blast0rama Marty Day (@blast0rama) reported

    @slashfilmcast @davechensky @Devindra @jeffcannata HUSTLERS is down to $10 on iTunes this week. Picked it up based on your glowing recommendations during the End of Year episode. Looking forward to checking it out!

  • SirBenfro James Oswald (@SirBenfro) reported

    Now iTunes seems to have forgotten where it left all my music. Less of a problem, as it's all still there. I can't help thinking this might be the death throes of my Mac Mini though. One MacOS update too many for its poor little CPU.

  • pauldnuttall Paul Nuttall (@pauldnuttall) reported

    @AppleSupport just been told that the geniuses can’t reset my iPad Air 2 as the hardware is not supported by iTunes but I can replace it to fix the software issue with another iPad Air 2 for £250 pound. Like wtf.

  • ablaze Jon Mitchell (@ablaze) reported

    @imfunny_haha Well that’s not even it for me, though. The fact that Apple had the wherewithal to preserve the concept of *your library* from iTunes and merge it completely into the service is what makes it no contest to me. Syncing was rough going at first, but it’s perfect for me now.

  • Mr__JJ ✈Jamie✈ (@Mr__JJ) reported

    Football Manager 2020 is £5.99 on iTunes think it’s went down in price gonna give it a go went off that game the last few seasons

  • JohnIsaBadMan . (@JohnIsaBadMan) reported

    @TrelloDeLaGetto crazy thing is that i don’t even sync. when i download my music it just appears in my itunes with no problems. i wouldn’t even have the space to sync all my shit

  • greytfriend Cathy (@greytfriend) reported

    @Mariah2you I get why they wanted to split iTunes into the different apps but I kinda hate it still. We’ve definitely lost functionality. And there are just more errors & problems at every level with every update. Not Windows bad, but not what it used to be

  • kevbryan Kevin Bryan (@kevbryan) reported

    Experienced an issue today with a MacBook playing videos but having intermittent issues playing the audio from these videos. Just mp4 files. Same MacBook played music from iTunes with no issues. Quicktime is at most current version. Confused.

  • RebeccaMIRELES9 Rebecca MIRELES (@RebeccaMIRELES9) reported from Dallas, Texas

    @RepAndyBiggsAZ Well we have an iTunes Amazon problem w/pushers on the web so yeah kinda like ohhguess what well push suit so we can make bank with books till oh yeah it gets noticed yet again @TomFitton wasn't about actually a cure but the cause election&publicity doctrizing cures malpractice

  • lockedonbengals Locked On Bengals (@lockedonbengals) reported

    Should be fixed everywher except Megaphone (which looks to be lagging behind with caching issues) - but you should be good on Spotify, iTunes, Google Podcasts, etc.

  • jhamby Jake Hamby (@jhamby) reported from Los Angeles, California

    And the beauty is that it’s essentially a gift card, not a full-service debit card, because customers can’t ever cash it out except by buying things from Starbucks. So that money is gone forever. Steve Jobs did the same with the iTunes Store, Microsoft has Xbox Live gift cards.

  • ShaneJeffery boot scootin’ bob (@ShaneJeffery) reported

    @paigebent I used to think the line “and how does it feel staring down on your idols grave” from Dethroned was “how does it feel staring down on your iTunes playlist”

  • stumacgee stumgee (@stumacgee) reported

    @height8 I fixed my issue. It was down to Touch ID hiding a setting for iTunes & App Store. Ultimately requiring a password for Free Downloads. FIX: Settings > iTunes & App Store settings state Touch ID is enabled for all purchases Settings > Touch ID & Passcode....

  • joonsdeadleaves サミー ⁷ {Album OTY out Feb 21st} (@joonsdeadleaves) reported

    I can finally play the songs I bought from iTunes again 😭😭 Black Swan along with the entirety of Persona and CNS disappeared and wouldn’t redownload, but the problem is fixed 🥳

  • bikehugger byron@bikehugger (@bikehugger) reported

    @mcwm I should add, the NAS server whatever should have iTunes server on it, which is often bundled or easy to get.

  • bikehugger byron@bikehugger (@bikehugger) reported

    @mcwm That's what I did. Also if you have a NAS or server an old MacBook whatever, put library there and select it in iTunes. Just bypass their demands.

  • KyosukeHyoubu Cassidy 💕 (@KyosukeHyoubu) reported

    @devoted_ninja Fffffffff I was about to login to my JP iTunes

  • BobScot48804242 Bob Scott (@BobScot48804242) reported

    @CycleVolt @businessinsider @Apple Only issue I have with mine is that it isn't big enough to hold ALL my music, 160gb and I have to edit my iTunes collection now and again to get new stuff on it 😕

  • ryanlips Ryan Lips (@ryanlips) reported

    the new iTunes service agreement is pushy.

  • AesirNSFW Aesir (@AesirNSFW) reported

    Okay I'm gonna eat some cereal and then do a late, emergency instagrat thanks to the dumb itunes error. $40 per char, same as last time. Sorry it's so late. We'll try to run a while. I need to go food shopping tomorrow lol

  • TommyDog123 Tom (@TommyDog123) reported

    @danbarker You contact Apple. You have to restore the device with itunes or something, it's a nightmare. Phone Apple cust service / tech support.

  • TaylorStan11 RARE ⭐️ (@TaylorStan11) reported

    @bradyryanwise @RapCentury_ His album was submitted by his label as a rap album. It is categorized on every streaming service & iTunes as a rap album. Why do y’all complain every year about the Grammys lmao

  • JamesBrigtest james brigtest (@JamesBrigtest) reported

    @WWEPPorn @CarmellaWWE Shane Pamela Bailey down I want I want to rip me off money asking for money for iTunes cards take care I sure went down the other day and she never got back up to the same again pounded to the ground scamming person

  • RFeelsberg Riley Feelsberg (@RFeelsberg) reported

    @businessinsider Getting rid of the iPod and iTunes was the worst decision ever. I still use my iPod religiously!!! It's like being a film lover and being told that all movie theater will be shut down. @apple @AppleMusic PLEASE BRING BACK THE IPOD AND ITUNES!!! - everyone

  • jameslparis James L. Paris (@jameslparis) reported

    @blogtalkradio just checking in to see if there might be a feed issue. My shows have not appeared over at iTunes after 5 hours. Normally in 1 to 2 hours. Ticket already submitted. Thanks much.

  • CycleVolt RJB2000 🚴⚽⚡🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🇬🇧 (@CycleVolt) reported

    @EleanorRudd iTunes still works for my iPod with no issues.

  • SpPandaaa SOFT(HOT)™ (@SpPandaaa) reported

    @LittleStarCos Aaaaah. I'm so excited to throw money down on itunes to buy these sick tunes.

  • demetriagames_ 𝐨𝐬𝐤𝐚𝐫 ANYONE (@demetriagames_) reported

    @breathinlovatic @crybabymnds Its not the same thing... iTunes sales are pure copies and Apple Music is a streaming service like Spotify

  • DigiDNA iMazing (@DigiDNA) reported

    @mphomakitla The problem will come when you update iTunes on Windows, or update macOS!

  • rama_ebooks Rama EBooks (@rama_ebooks) reported

    When you realize that running a filter on my email...and it's nearly making my computer to shut down by accident after upgrading iTunes.

  • PrincesaAyesha Princesa (@PrincesaAyesha) reported

    @dakid_online Apple ID issue. Won’t allow me to log in to use iCloud or iTunes

  • thupka1982 T-Hup - Super Bowl Fever! (@thupka1982) reported from Leduc, Alberta

    @mikeFAIL @DKingBH This piqued my interest, gents. I'm surprised how few "radio play" singles there are on a couple of the albums here, and now I'm tempted to go down the rabbit hole and download a few of these. I'm appreciating this thread. (Yeah, I'm still using iTunes and a 160GB iPod classic.)

  • fabiawen asude (@fabiawen) reported

    @QueenSelenaRare @rarerevivaI @taha_Xx100 @PopCrave @ddlovato thats the problem. you're talking about the pic but im talking about what i see on itunes

  • JayDanielsAU Jay Daniels (@JayDanielsAU) reported

    @AppleSupport I restarted my phone it fixed the issue. iTunes and App Store in general has been very problematic if late though. I hope you guys are working on it!

  • carryontae pooja⁷ 🦢 (@carryontae) reported

    they have all the songs . but i hate their ui so much why is this like everything that’s terrible about itunes 😭

  • LukeEMiaPI Luke E Mia (@LukeEMiaPI) reported

    Try requesting a refund for a mistaken purchase on iTunes. Those robots have the worst customer service I've ever encountered.
