just wondering cause I think its fine, what supposedly works better on a mac?
I think in general, it's the stability and ease of use that is better on OS X than on Windows. To me, on Windows, it feels clunky and unrefined.
iTunes on Windows runs well, just like iTunes on Mac.
iTunes sucks for anything other than music on both Windows and Mac. That's just my opinion.
Honestly, Apple should have created a different app to sync your iDevice with, or at least made it less painful. Want to get a ringtone on to your device? Copy it off, then add it in to iTunes and then sync. Movies, photos, books? Same deal. Oh
want to do all of that with your iPhone 5, but you only own a PowerPC Mac? We're sorry, buy an Intel Mac and upgrade!
Thank God I'm jailbroken. It's a heck of a lot easier just dropping it on to my phone and then using one or two specific apps to import things correctly.
It's generally smoother, faster, and more stable on Mac than on Windows. It was always sluggish and clunky when I had a Windows machine even with high end specs.
It runs fine.. I think people just mean that Windows in general is bad.
Windows users are accustomed to using better alternatives.
iTunes on Windows runs as if it uses the most heavy resources possible, while any other program doesn't have as much issues. It's just plain slow. Apple could refine it more I'm sure, but I doubt they care.
This. It's not that it really runs that bad anymore. It's just not that it runs particularly well, either.
If you don't have an ssd, updating apps will almost freeze your system. But Steam has also had this issue when updating your games. Since I have an ssd all these issues are gone
I have been using Apple desktops and laptops running Windows for years and years and iTunes runs just as well on Windows as OSX.
I am no fan of iTunes or my forced use of it, but it runs the same on both OS.
I've never had problems with it, but I prefer iTunes on my Mac over the windows flavor. I do think there's some sluggishness going on and the UI is off just a bit. Not quite windows and not quite OSX. A little of both and that feels odd to me.
People don't say iTunes is bad on Windows. They say iTunes is bad everywhere. And getting worse it seems.
I think that is a very valid point.
No, that's not what people mean. It's bad on Mac too.
I found it ok on windows but better on a Mac. So comparatively speaking I feel it's bad on windows. It just feels clunky by comparison. That said I'm not a huge fan on iTunes at all. But it gets the job done.
Nothing wrong with it but its just a better experience on OS X.
because it requires just as much ram and cpu usage as Crysis maxed out with 3 mods installed running at enthusiast settings to function properly. there are many things and factors that can make the app suck, like microsoft, apple and the different OEM vendors, parts, variety of hardware, little effort with coding etc. It's actually good on a Mac.
I don't suffer from that problem anymore, i switched to mac
Don't own a Mac so I can't compare. But iTunes runs faster on my Windows 7 rig (16 gigs RAM) than it does on my iPad, so I have no complaints.
Plus, my desktop speakers are better.
Exactly, it's a way better experience. And sometimes even more reliable as well: I often had some error codes when downloading new iOS updates in iTunes on a Windows machine, but never experienced something like that on OS X.
It just doesn't feel as quick or responsive on Windows.
iTunes constantly freezes and constantly stops responding and lags and closes all the time for me on windows. It's simply better on the Mac.
Anything windows make me. puke.
It runs a lot of intensive background processes even when iTunes itself is not running and the requirement to have Apple Software Updater running too is a massive annoyance to many Windows users as it slows their already fragmented and unoptomised systems down even more.
Try running it under both OS's and see for yourself.
