Boy am I regretting installing iTunes 8 on my Vista machine. I also updated it on my MacBook Pro and I really hope that the Mac version isn’t such a mess.
How does it suck? Let me count (briefly) the ways:
- It appears slower in general than iTunes 7
- UI updating is just awful. very slow.
- Connecting my iPhone results in a “never-ending” sync. I say never ending because the sync icon next to the phone on the left side of the UI never goes away but the rest of the UI indicates the sync is complete. If I hit the eject icon for the phone iTunes complains a sync is still in progress.
- Oh, and it deleted some applications it was supposed to update.
I really, really hope they have a fast update to this because its a complete flop. Doesn’t make me too hot to install OS 2.1 on the iPhone either 😦
