When iTunes 7 was released, it brought not only a lot of new features and interface changes, but a lot of bugginess. Many users have complained loudly, even taking New York Times columnist David Pogue to task.

Apple today released iTunes 7.0.1, which is available via Software Update and Apple’s web site.

According to Apple, the 25.7MB download “addresses stability and performance issues with Cover Flow, CD importing, iPod syncing, and more.”

The cries of users have clearly been heard. Have their problems been solved?

  1. hey thats great apple has updated with some good features!!!

  3. It worries me that Apple seem to be getting more like Microsoft in their willingness to release bug filled products to the masses. My MBP, which replaced a faithful G4, was whining like a banshee until I found ShhMBP, amd Coverflow worked just fine as a standalone, then seemed to break when they got it for iTunes.

    I’m glad they get the fixes (at least for software) out there fast, but I’d prefer it if they held of release while longer to iron out these things.

    BTW, love your blog!

  4. Well, Apple is becoming more like Microsoft in the sense that more and more people are buying their products. With more customers comes more pressure to release new and updated products. It all comes with the territory but as long as they quickly fix it you can’t blame them for trying. At least we don’t have to deal with Windows… well, unless you want to, that is.

  5. It still does not fix my 2 biggest problems:

    • It does not remember the width of the artwork’s column in View #2, even though it remembers the resizing of any other column. Why give me the ability to change it when it won’t remember?

    • “Music Videos” needs its own section in the library. At least bring back the filtering options in the “Videos” section from iTunes 6.

  6. Coverflow still has hang-ups when scrolling from one end to another.

    The 3 layout switch buttons are reacting a bit faster, but, however, they seem not to react “just in time” when pressed..

    I have a Mac Mini with a 1.66 Core Duo (formerly the biggest Mini, before the 1.83 came) with 512MB of Ram.

    Maybe I should upgrade it?

  7. I didn’t notice a difference, all of my songs seems to work well, but I upgraded anyway.

    I have a question for you people.
    In Winamp (windows) I can add files and folders and it’s all sorted the way I want it.. by folders. Well atleast when I add them.

    In iTunes I can’t seem to find such an option as to sort songs by folder. Is this possible? If yes, then how?!
    If no, how do you people do who have 2 albums with same name, but one album has 4 more songs cause its a special edition?!
    I get songs like:
    01 artist – album – first song
    01 artist – album – first song
    02 artist – album – second song
    02 artist – album – second song

    This annoys me quite a lot, since I have 20-30 cd’s which I have 2 of because of special editions.

    So if anyone knows a fix, please help! =)

  8. Try labeling the first disc “1 of 1″ and the other “2 of 2″ – this should seperate them.

  9. *separate

  10. Sadly, my first-gen black Nano still isn’t recognized by iTunes after plugging it in, ejecting, and plugging it in again. Why do I have to reboot just to be able to sync my damn iPod?

    iTunes 7 is a damn great release, don’t get me wrong, but this is really starting to grate.
