Top Ten Most Annoying Things About iTunesITunes is a service I doubt I could be without, but it's annoying. Here's why.
The Top Ten
Yeah I hate on both itunes and google play when it is album only the price may be high, and if you only want one song you have to buy the full album - trains45
I understand that we all want free of cost download, but for a music artists it very sad. If you start downloading songs for free the music industry will shut down and one day their will be no music existing.
Why do people buy music from iTunes when they can download it free from thousands of other websites? - harry721
Damn, everything about apple is costly. As Microsoft says these are "apple tax". - Kiteretsunu
Another example is Canto 34 by Five Finger Death Punch. It's an instrumental song, but according to iTunes, it's explicit. - Frantic713
Every single song by Five Finger Death Punch is marked Explicit when they're not, only mark the bad ones explicit not the clean ones
About every Five Finger Death Punch song on iTunes is explicit even though all of em aren't.
This is bigger than it sounds. In what way, for instance, is Loscil explicit? - PositronWildhawk
Not so much of a genius when it hasn't even been updated for over three years. Songs from 2015 still don't work in genius. - DaWyteNight
Takes so long that I can't even be bothered using my subscription to icliid music. At least give users the option!
As Michael McIntyre once said, Apple should stop overestimating their employee's IQ scores, and should compare their workers instead with Curry's' "Fix-It Bob". The iTunes store "Genius" is no exception. Genius takes the music you recently bought, finds the most random thing that isn't even remotely related, and advertises it to you like Ol' Gil does in The Simpsons. So thank you, but no thank you. - PositronWildhawk
It's ridiculous! It's like joining a queue in HMV waiting for your turn. In the same way, if we cooked a chicken for the family the traditional way, by rubbing it and letting the heat from the friction of your hand against the meat cook the chicken, your family will have starved to death by the time that the chicken is ready. The long waits of yesteryear were impractical in that sense, and waits that we have today are no exception. So, iTunes, please, get a server that doesn't run from a solar panel on Sedna! - PositronWildhawk
I open iTunes, and it instantly tells me the top hits this month. A lot of the time, the picks are crap that I couldn't care less about. - PositronWildhawk
@PositronWildHawk of course it will put the top hits because it wants you to buy stuff and if you see a song you like and recognize then you will buy it. Whats the best way to know what songs you'll want? Look at top songs sold and just assume youll like it. don't be an idiot. - Phillycheesefag
Obviously the top ten hits will be pop -_-
Most of the top songs are indie and pop bull crap! - ArpstaAmy333
Or sometimes they do this with soundtracks. One time, (Don't judge me) I tried to buy 'Pure Imagination' sung by Gene Wilder. Why did I need the whole soundtrack? I don't know! - MontyPython
"Hey, iTunes, here's a brainwave! Suppose I wanted to get great songs like "Echoes" or "Strobe" WITHOUT everything else on the album? "
"Certainly, sir, we'll try and find albums without too many unwanted tracks for a price compromise, or maybe cut a few minutes off? "
"Oh, yeah, great idea! I can make do with 9 out of 23 minutes! So what about shorter songs? "
"No compromise needed, sir. Have it as it is."
"Great! I think I'll shorten them anyway, and why don't I just shorten everything I own, from all of my belts to all of my electrical cables? It'll cut back on bills and stomach capacity! " - PositronWildhawk
They are obsessed with these, and it's always from a source with so little taste that they might as well have no tongues. - PositronWildhawk
My family all share the iTunes library. If I were to attach my iPad to a computer, then, I'd get all the nonsense that my brother has bought onto it. No thanks for that. - PositronWildhawk
Personally, itunes is one of my absolute favourite apps, but this really annoys me :( - Neonwhitelion
It's too bad they don't have original definitely Leppard songs. - creed99
Still can't find Adele's Skyfall... - NicholasYellow
Put Fear Club and LØV on iTunes. Please! - PositronWildhawk
Putting the Beatles under the "Pop" genre is fine because the Beatles were considered pop artists, but I would prefer if it was under "Pop/Rock" because they were pop rock artists. But if it puts a Metallica album under "Pop", then you might want to raise some questions.
According to this, the first Hobbit movie was a romance film. Fixed now, but there are likely more of those mistakes out there. - PositronWildhawk
Apparently AC/DC is pop music.
Like if it pauses in between the two songs instead of flowing seamlessly like it should, I find it annoying. iTunes, please fix this!
Don't bother with these, iTunes, they get you nowhere. - PositronWildhawk
Why would I have to buy them as a ringtone anyway? Ideally, any song that's already on a smart device should be set as a tone for anything we please, and we can customise it to start at any point in the track. - PositronWildhawk
A popup told me to update iTunes 7 times...SEVEN TIMES!
This sucks for both google play and itunes, I wanted to buy 1 song not the album I didn't buy the album - trains45
