First off, NOT intending to start a flame war. I'm curious as to why there's alot of "hate" for Itunes, I'd figure an Android forum is an excellent place to ask such a question (sure as hell ain't gonna be on an Apple hardware/softare forum). I still use an Ipod Touch for games, and an Ipod Classic for my music on the road. I use Itunes to sync my music, but I've found the IpT really doesn't need Itunes. I can buy apps and junk via the AppStore on the device. Since most of my music is on the Ipod with scroll wheel, that's really the only interraction I need with Itunes for PC. Overall, I find Itunes for music management decent, but I am annoyed about a few things. Specifically.... 1) When I search for music, it shows me whether or not it's there, but it doesn't tell me where it was. This is why I also keep duplicate playlists on WinAmp. When I search via WinAmp, it tells me which playlist the song was in, and where in the playlist it was (e.g. #87 in a list of 279 tracks) 2) I had to figure out that you can't drag and drop WinAmp PL into the connected Ipod directly. It's gotta go into some Itunes library first, THEN you move those over from the Itunes library to an Ipod. 3) There doesn't appear to be a sure way to backup your setup and playlists, although if I ever get around to resintalling Itunes on my new PC, I'll find out shortly.
