    @JackPosobiec I'm suprised iTunes hasn't taken it down in this biden Era of no freedom. All they r doing is destroying America within, just like ancient Rome, very sad. We r a laughing stock to the world now, nd look so weak. Sad 3 more years of this 😢🙏

    @AppleSupport I only have an iTunes Match subscription. Never signed up to Apple Music. Downloading matched songs never been an issue before. These songs have been matched since many years ago. clearly an issue on apple’s side here. It doesn’t matter on the device, same on all of them, this

  • jadyata 🌻jayde (@jadyata) reported

    @MFWitches Not since I was a teenager. We lived remotely so my only access was iTunes and I couldn’t afford $1.29 per song or to buy DVDs. At the time I didn’t really understand the problem with it.

  • CarlG724 Carl Grunewald (@CarlG724) reported

    @Spotify when I’m listening the app shuts down after about a minute on my app. In about to switch to @iTunes if you don’t get this fixed.

  • Foxxynivek Kevin Duffy (@Foxxynivek) reported

    @TheCW The 4400 Season Pass on iTunes is not working. It says “This item is temporarily unavailable.” @iTunes told me that it is a problem with The CW not releasing the Season Pass. When do you anticipate this being fixed?

    @JackPosobiec Wait for it....ITunes down

    @EmyTaliana @DominiqueP_C @WynonnaEarpPod I followed the link from Emy's IG profile to preorder, but had problems. It sends U to ITunes. Wants U to sign in so I had to create a new ID/password. Did that. It said terms were accepted by clicking Continue. Did that. It said I had to accept the terms again. So no new ID.

    @benUNC I make a thing (song, movie, image, etc). You like that thing. I press Cmd-C and Cmd-V and send you the copy. I embed in its code "Copy #1, Owned by BenUNC" and write down that you own that copy. This is what happens whether you buy a song or movie from iTunes, or an NFT image.

    I want to bu music on itunes- doesn't work I bought a lamp- can't use it/broken Cause I could never hold a perfect thing And not demolish it

  • stylez_jake Jake_stylez (@stylez_jake) reported

    @HECKSCAPER I seem to remember Apple shuting itunes down a couple years ago….

  • NicknamedDoug Plethora Papi (@NicknamedDoug) reported

    @scorpioseason_ Used to buy on Google play music. Since they shut that down i gotta find a better option. Itunes still allows albums to be purchased

  • nick_lively Nick Lively (@nick_lively) reported

    @47Been My only issue is Seal Team isn’t available on paramount + here in Canada. I was hoping for a season pass on iTunes but looks like I’ll have to wait and see if it gets added and the watch it all.

  • sustainably99 🌿 (@sustainably99) reported

    wasn’t apple supposed to shut itunes down?

  • KaaSerpent SCARY Henderson (he/him) (@KaaSerpent) reported

    @ServingWorlds Well...it's like this... :) I used iTunes until they hobbled it, and I HATED the replacement, so I 'rolled my own.' So I'm basically accessing the RSS directly from my own C# code and parsing it. That's how I noticed. I started getting "This is not a date" errors. :)

  • CraigGrannell Craig Grannell (@CraigGrannell) reported

    @egorka So iTunes would match, say, track one of a Björk album. But that was it. The service would then laboriously upload the rest of the album, which was nuts.

  • Fusion_Sid Siddhesh Zantye (@Fusion_Sid) reported

    Like when I download a youtube video, it downloads it then says error after. Or when i download a song for iTunes, iTunes spits it out but when I go to some random other YT converter the iTunes accepts it. I thought it was just me but i've tried on 4 devices now.

  • BigDoggFlexx 7-4 til tha world blow (@BigDoggFlexx) reported

    @SeanyMac_32 @meet_cleo Same! Yall have charged fraudulently charged me $30. When I go to download the app isn't on Google Play Store nor iTunes. I go online and it's saying there's no account under my ONLY email. So how was I charged then? So yall take my money and shut down?! I'm definitely disputing

    i can bring my ipod classic to work which is slightly cumbersome bc of my bluetooth adapter but still this is incredibly annoying idk why they left pc itunes in such a broken state before they pawned it off to microsoft which is a joke in and of itself

  • PerfectStormo Tim Norman's Sky (@PerfectStormo) reported

    Is it just me or is the "classic visualiser" in the Apple Music app for Mac completely broken now? It looks nothing like what the classic iTunes visualiser looks like and seems like it might be really glitchy?

  • hungryjoe8 Clegg (@hungryjoe8) reported

    Question: a while ago itunes did this weird thing where the stuff I added on my laptop (vinyl uploads, purchases, CD uploads) all duplicated, but other stuff hadn’t. Duplicates go away when I sign out, come back when sign in. Any clues how to fix this?

  • LoriJoanneQ Lori 🌻 Quick (she/her) (@LoriJoanneQ) reported

    @GraceBaldridge yep i'm an old person now, going back into iTunes to buy this because I love it. (have to download the store app I guess?) {i stopped using it because of digital storage capacity issues. womp womp. has anyone solved those? 😜 }

  • _justinshaw Justin Shaw (@_justinshaw) reported

    @ednmnl @RealBrysonGray Apple Music is a different service than iTunes.. Music is a monthly streaming service and has its own rankings based on songs played not purchased.. iTunes ranks are based on individual purchases of songs
