  • Elucidatus 経験は最高の教師だ。卍 (@Elucidatus) reported

    @Trepe I haven’t had problems with albums being available on iTunes, as I rip it all myself. I only have trouble from time to time with Apple changing my album covers to US ones from my Aussie or Japanese releases.

  • Trepe Peter (@Trepe) reported

    @Elucidatus I just use it because iTunes can be a pain with albums that aren’t alrady on their service. Some albums just wouldn’t show up so I just play them through that app.

    se colocar o noah falando "break it down for me. it's now united. dance for me, c'mon" no itunes eu compro

  • toddheberlein Todd Heberlein (@toddheberlein) reported

    @mgsiegler If I have a choice of watching something from Apple iTunes vs other streaming service (Hulu, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, CBS), I go with Apple. For whatever reason, I find the video quality better. Don’t know if they have a better CDN, peering arrangements or what.

  • s_james_s sarah j. schendel (@s_james_s) reported

    I endeavor to one day be as dedicated to anything as iTunes is to constantly being open/never shutting down/always reopening.

  • tgmgrg tamara 🌻 (@tgmgrg) reported

    @lolajadebola @AppStore you probably have it set that way in your settings. go to settings, scroll down to iTunes & App Store and then unclick “updates” under automatic downloads

  • JamesLa17871210 James Larkin (@JamesLa17871210) reported

    They’ve made a dog’s dinner out of Tucker and Willow up on iTunes in Ireland, but the problems can be fixed with a push of a button. I know because Fox, Sony and Universal have all had the same errors.

  • nekov4ego Daniel Kirilov (@nekov4ego) reported

    If Apple wants to have competitive streaming service, then they shouldn't lock it to Apple TV or whatever. Make it a web app/player (do the same for iTunes PLEASE), and make it available on Windows browsers.

  • jbied Stable G (@jbied) reported

    This @mignano is serious. Your service, @anchor has completely messed up the launch of our podcast. Anchor has somehow submitted duplicate RSS feeds and now itunes has rejected the request. We have reached out to customer service and now this...

  • BrianCo26816237 Hottwheels (@BrianCo26816237) reported

    @THESUGARDAD1 No problem, one of them somehow even showed me the money in my paypal account. It wasn’t there, they wanted me to do the iTunes scam

  • mbayer1248 Michael Bayer (@mbayer1248) reported

    @MarkPiper I use it when I go to the gym... has my many years of music I imported into itunes off CDs, and it doesn't give me notifications about email! I love that it doesn't have wifi or cell service!

  • trintitty 🖤 𝓉𝓇𝒾𝓃 🖤 (@trintitty) reported

    @Marty_mcfly43 @caammrynnn i get a charge for Napster which i USE and a charge for itunes. call their customer service

  • voodavey yoncevevo (@voodavey) reported

    @vandercunts Same!!! I remember actually buying the album from the iTunes Store and literally putting my head down all of 6th period to listen 😫

  • Jake10477570 Beau.SGT. (@Jake10477570) reported

    yea.. the worst part is the poor bastards that fall for it ... "all i need is an itunes card, and a bit coin or two" ... Jason, i look at it as a public service... keep on the hook.. and i'm bored ..

  • pjkahle Paul (@pjkahle) reported

    @Alixsar Need an Actioncast reunion show. It not being on iTunes anymore is a problem

  • chip_cam ChipCamTiques (@chip_cam) reported

    @JuneEdith @SimonAmstell @iTunes Great.. I will only watch it when Simon gets rid of that terrible perm. He looks like Linda Bassett when she played Grandma in Grandma’s House! 😂😂😂 #sorrysimoniloveyoureally

    @Koreanmusicfan1 @BTS_twt Hello! Yes itunes is sales only, while apple music is a streaming service. 💜 @BTS_twt

  • thwlfu thwlfu📱🛠 (@thwlfu) reported

    I’m restore my iPad 2 with bootLoop iTunes logo (and unkown error 9 on iTunes )😂😂

  • GothamNY Randall GooglePE (@GothamNY) reported

    @ThePatK @GooglePlay @Google @GooglePlayMusic Ahh, ok, I’ve only used iTunes so my music has always been owned and on my hard drive. Never moved from one music service to another. I suppose I can see what I can find on that…maybe I’ll learn something. #gHelp

  • happypeep Ami Moregore (@happypeep) reported

    @HeelFaceShoot @MurphyWrestle @NYWCWRESTLING I hate to impose further but yes, anything that isn't itunes. That service has done bad things to my files in the past

  • mauriciord Mauricio R. Duarte (@mauriciord) reported

    @jsteinbrechr @AmarachiAmaechi Send a React Native app to iTunes Connect Server without Xcode or Application Loader, then i agree with you

  • EmuBands EmuBands (@EmuBands) reported

    iTunes Trends Data from 20th March is now available to EmuBands users via the trends menu item in your login area.

  • KwameOlajuwon Brooklyn Trill™ (@KwameOlajuwon) reported from Manhattan, New York

    @AcesOnSpades I gotta find them. Most were taken down over the years. I got them in my iTunes tho. Hold on...

  • SupercardPrince Pince Pretty BAYBAY (@SupercardPrince) reported

    @SUPERZOMGBBQ @SupercardEdward What if you put them down then and I don’t upload to YouTube 😔 JB hurts my feelings and I only spend average $500 a month but direct credits through Supercard on iTunes not through amazon or anywhere else, I feel hopeless

  • benjaminreid Benjamin Reid (@benjaminreid) reported

    @AndyPotts_ @Spotify @Apple I think I had a similar issue which was resolved by remove the “iTunes Helper” from my Login Items (it seems to just be there by default 🙄)

  • AndyPotts_ Andy Potts (@AndyPotts_) reported

    Updated to #Mojave yesterday. iTunes has managed to become more annoying. Now every time I open @spotify and press play on my keyboard, iTunes opens, tells me to sign in and automatically adds itself to my dock 😢 Seems like more unfair anti-competitive behaviour from @Apple

  • strandell Jonas Strandell (@strandell) reported

    Me: One ’Into the Spider-Verse’, please. Torrent: Sure! DVD: OK! Blu-Ray: No problem! iTunes: ...

  • LollyGags_stuff LollyGags (@LollyGags_stuff) reported

    @FirstFedSavings having issues with the mobile app since the recent changes can you sent me the link to the most update version for android i can only seem to find the iphone one via itunes.

  • Trcv_ebooks Trebooks (@Trcv_ebooks) reported

    Repo is throwing that iTunes 9 error in your sentence, I will not hesitate to correct it.

  • JamesLa17871210 James Larkin (@JamesLa17871210) reported

    @pschiller Mr Schiller I reaching out looking for help with the Irish iTunes Store. We are same distribution area as UK but a lot of movies (and iTunes extras) do not get uploaded to the Irish Store because of simple admin errors by distributors

  • GreyMatterrs Lord Grey Of The House Lannisters (@GreyMatterrs) reported

    Gives you Hulu with Commercials like ***** you can’t be that poor that you want streaming service with ******* COMMERCIALS, ***** your iPhone makes your ******* phone a whole remote, sign in iTunes and boom you can get music on your ******* laptop, Gosh poor ppl are so annoying

  • AnnaBella45MAG AnnaBellaMAG (@AnnaBella45MAG) reported

    @iTunes Terrible effects but such a stunning leading man 😉

  • Gaz_eBooks Gaz eBooks (@Gaz_eBooks) reported

    Girlfriend got a full server pretty much given up on iTunes.

  • spaceexile your fav soft queer (@spaceexile) reported

    @Ecscc2 if you can live with certain things just being broken or needing workarounds (like Bluetooth and wifi generally needing external dongles and not using the built-in antennas, or iTunes fundamentally not working) it might be worth it. but you need to do a lot of research beforehand

  • dorotensionmax Dornicorn 🎧🎶 (@dorotensionmax) reported

    Well I found out that part of the reason it's not working is 'cause my dad switched to the American iTunes store

  • ZelWms Rose (the digital curator) (@ZelWms) reported

    @VZWSupport apparently I can't live chat on your site without logging in, which I can't do because myverizon won't let me set up an account. I also can't login to @AppleSupport on iCloud/iTunes on my partner's laptop because it also demands MFA which it sends to my iPhone.

  • PassportRav Passport Rav (@PassportRav) reported

    @iTunes First time I've walked out of a movie...maybe ever. Terrible

  • sunshinesominny SOMINNY ⇝KARD🖤 (@sunshinesominny) reported

  • flickertape rebecca (@flickertape) reported

    Scrolling down iTunes "Recently Added" and I'm dissociating at 2015.

  • justjoe2me joe hodge 3rd (@justjoe2me) reported

    @iDavey Wait. iTunes not a streaming service. I’m so done.

  • ASVPAAB AB (@ASVPAAB) reported

    @Apple hello apple I have a problem I changed my iPhone and I forget my iTunes backup password what should I do I have the Apple ID and everything u need it please I need any one for apple support to help me for this problem thank you :)

  • factzmanifest Facts (@factzmanifest) reported

    Using iTunes to build nuclear weapons is against their terms of service.

  • KarlLyktberg Han (@KarlLyktberg) reported

    @Jorginslabiin @OuterWorlds @EpicGames Music had the same problem, then came iTunes and Spotify and now most people don’t bother downloading stuff. Outstandingly short sighted move.

  • mattolson97 olson (@mattolson97) reported

    One of my biggest regrets in life is not remembering my iTunes login from 5th grade

  • Procreate Procreate (@Procreate) reported

    @darcydubose @ElPocho It’s highly unlikely to be a Procreate issue, but Support will look into it. In the meantime, we found a strange workaround that might work - plug your iPad into a computer and let it sync to iTunes for a few minutes. This may reorganise your storage.

  • IAmJonnyApollo Jonathan Apollo (@IAmJonnyApollo) reported

    @SpiceForce_5 Streaming makes it easier nowadays for certain records to be broken, but they'll NEVER accomplish what the Spice Girls did without the help of iTunes, Spotify, etc.

  • sjaeint ⚜️ (@sjaeint) reported

    spotify is terrible lmaoo you can’t even add your iTunes library to it.

  • scottmeup_ Scotty (@scottmeup_) reported

    @s0uthwes Yeah I'm not totally sure why but it stops at that step. The ATV4 has the Apple logo on screen. After the failure iTunes picks it up as in recovery mode but when I tried to restore tvOS 10.2.2 it gave an unknown error 21. Kicked it out with reiboot and it loaded 11.3 as before FR

  • josieisrad (@josieisrad) reported

    @Lisathesucubrat @d1rtyhooves Yeah I made a tutorial awhile back! The only problem is that it’s really specific. It’s for Mac and itunes. And it’s honestly kind of shotty. It stopped working for me after awhile and was kind of more trouble than it was worth. (Lisa mentioned Spotify but I only used iTunes)

  • EricaLuttmann Erica L (@EricaLuttmann) reported

    @SpotifyStatus help! My iTunes charged my acct and I see the receipt BUT it’s still not working

  • BrysonBlt Bryson (@BrysonBlt) reported

    @iTunes actually won't let me download any of @Sportsnet's podcasts. Stupid error codes 😭

  • exclesium Anthony Davanzo (@exclesium) reported

    @rotimi_opeke Hm I think that’s an interesting take— it feels like they’ve just tried to recreate 2007 iTunes as a cloud streaming service instead of trying to push new features that are made possible with the new services/APIs/capabilities of 2019.

  • GoodManspodcast Goodmans' Podcast (@GoodManspodcast) reported

    Bad news, our Spotify account was taken down. We hope to get it back up but in the meantime you can find us on Google play and Itunes.

  • SheriKh70569096 Sheri Khan (@SheriKh70569096) reported

    @TweakBoxApp When ever I download instagaram++ from your site n open it it asks for iTunes password m mail n after that it crashes so first of all fix the problems

  • stopthtoldwoman h.h. carlan🌙 (@stopthtoldwoman) reported

    @HeavyMetalJesus @SoMattyGameZ I was into buying digital until I read that you don’t “own” the content. If iTunes doesn’t continue contract service with the license holder, then the title will just disappear from your list. I am not willing to spend money on something that I could lose so easily.

  • r_oryd Rory (@r_oryd) reported

    @HouseOfRugby @andrew_trimble @patmccarry @BarryMurphyHG Was trying on iTunes, if no one else has had issues must just be me!

  • tehevilcannon 𝖆𝖑𝖊𝖝 𝖈𝖆𝖓𝖓𝖔𝖓 (@tehevilcannon) reported

    I'm getting Photoshop scratch disk errors because I have no ******* hard drive room because iTunes thinks its ******* 2007 and that I'd want to have every goddamn episode of a podcast LOCALLY STORED on my machine. ******* hell.

  • Actizity Thib (@Actizity) reported

    @AppleSupport I followed few tips found on the Internet. Also bring it to a repairer and he concluded that it was probably the motherboard. Wasn't the battery or screen problem. Also tried to reset it with iTunes. Didn't work.

  • john_keim John Keim (@john_keim) reported

    This link is working. For some reason was an issue with the one I sent out... But really good insight by Mike and Jordan...Can subscribe on iTunes, Spotify, Google. Etc. Etc. Enjoy
