 +Apple's iTunes is the world's most popular computer program for playing, buying and managing music, movies and TV shows. The company estimates the number of copies in active use to be in the high hundreds of millions. Now, Apple has given iTunes its biggest overhaul since 2003, when the software-- originally just a jukebox for Macs-- was made available for Windows computers and the built-in iTunes store was added.<br /><br />I've been testing this major new version, called iTunes 11, and I consider it a significant improvement in the look, feel, speed and function of the program, which had become somewhat bloated, dense and sluggish over the years as new features were added.<br /><br />This new version won't please every iTunes user.

The music mode, for example, shows songs, albums, genres, playlists and artists.<br /><br />Opening the iTunes Store is now done using a button at the top. Once in the store, you return to the library using a similar button at the.<br /><br />Those who prefer the old sidebar can bring it back and banish the new main buttons.<br /><br /><br />Apple's iTunes is the world's most popular computer program for playing, managing and buying music, movies and TV shows.
