It’s bloated and notoriously slow. It’s incredibly non-intuitive.”
Silverman reports, “On Windows, iTunes is prone to lockups and crashing. On the Mac, it’s more stable but still balky… Apple kicks hardware designs to the curb every few years, but it doesn’t seem inclined to redo software. Still, iTunes is long overdue for a do-over. Please fix it, Apple.”
