    There seems to be an occasional problem downloading through iTunes. Our apologies. Closing apple podcast and reopening seems to help.

    iTunes sure is terrible, but I think the Finder is terribly underrated as one of the most annoying MacOS applications

    The customer service is shit now. Once upon a time, you could return a book or two every six months. Now you can return anything anytime for any reason. Apparantly, you can even listen to the books first...I try not to do this...helps if you have itunes and shit doesn't delete.

    @AppleSupport I am unable to submit my podcast to iTunes - endless loop of login screen, clicking on "Podcasts Connect" then getting kicked back to login. I created a new Apple ID for this podcast, does that have something to do with it? It's not connected to any devices.

    iTunes on shuffle just decided I wasn't hormonal enough being 8 mos pregnant. Just dropped off my 14 year old to head to DC... First it hits @nicholenordeman's Slow Down... then rolls right into Cat Stevens' Father and son. I'm not crying- you're crying.

    @sonicandcnfan @nickandmore iTunes releases? Maybe (pass this news along) Addition to the streaming service is very possible, since all generations of Disney content will be there (aside from the Saban library, idk if it's even possible, he's pretty tight lipped).

    @greedyyMendes no problem love, I think that it will charge it off the credit card that’s connected to your iTunes account so if it’s connect to your’s then it won’t change

    @maddoxrules Did iTunes ask if you were sure you wanted to "discard" the Biggest Problem feed?

  • vamputee
    Jeannie Stewart (@vamputee) reported

    @aggieloveseggs Apparently if you have Apple Music you can’t do it. iTunes flat out says you can’t with Apple Music on. So I shut it off losing hundreds of songs in the process. Still not working. @AppleMusic

  • _JustDenver
    Denver (@_JustDenver) reported

    @akaMARTIAN That’s not what I mean. Ex: if I buy a song and put it in the cloud. When I stream it down to my device, is it counting as an additional stream of my already purchased song or is it simply playing the song I purchased? Does iTunes/Apple Music know the difference?

    @janewells When Facebook is monitoring my iTunes app store searches, that cross-platform spying is a bit much imo. I know I gave away certain privacy issues but not that much.

    @NosTheTwit I’m nowhere near that clever. iTunes is once again terrible when it comes to sharing anything. It has hi-res album art so why does it share a thumbnail?

    @AppleSupport There seems to be a problem with the ITunes update 12.7 as I keep getting a flashing screen on my laptop and the programme freezes. I’m hoping this is being looked into? Can you confirm when the next update will be available?

    @iTunes wtf Apple! I paid for some tv eps. and I cant even watch them due to some unknown error. Dealing with your tech support takes way too long. Shame on you for taking our hard earned money and not coming through. Typical bait and switch. I’m sure you don’t care though
