  • DAWN_TN DAWNTalkingNewspaper (@DAWN_TN) reported

    Our @tunein hosted podcast feed appears to be down at the moment which affects Amazon Echo users. We’re working to fix things. Apologies. iTunes is still ok.

  • PA2K94 PA2K (@PA2K94) reported

    @warnerbros hi I have a distribution issue with Unforgiven (1992) the film provided by iTunes is missing the director and screenwriter metadata, and i've been informed by iTunes support that its a distribution issue, not an iTunes/apple issue.

  • alexxethridge Alex Ethridge (@alexxethridge) reported

    About to break down and buy Rocketman on iTunes I really have a problem

  • mikailborg Resistance Is Vital Ω (@mikailborg) reported

    I can’t even watch this week’s Doctor Who until iTunes drops it tomorrow. I worry that I should shut down my social media until then…

  • nduranddd Nicole🥀 (@nduranddd) reported

    I miss watching Friends so much. I’m down to drop $140 on iTunes just to have the complete series with me.

  • Jasebechervaise Jason Bechervaise (@Jasebechervaise) reported

    PARASITE has now accumulated close to $31m in North America & is fourth on itunes feature film chart. Still two weeks left before oscars as the race enters its final stretch. Should have no issues hitting $35m, could well go further.

  • berkey11 Matt Berkey (@berkey11) reported

    @modernerahype @JohnnieVibes Hmm it's streaming fine for me from all platforms. I admittedly don't use iTunes, but I'll confirm w/my team and see if they are running into issues.

  • realK0k0Puffs 𝕹𝖔 𝖀𝖘𝖊𝖗𝖓𝖆𝖒𝖊 𝕱𝖔𝖚𝖓𝖉 (@realK0k0Puffs) reported

    Hey @Softorino I just used your #Waltr2 program to put music on my old iPod, because it doesn't know what to do with itself now that #iTunes is gone. My problem with it is that it's not exactly accessible for the blind. I had to really play around with it in order to figure

  • vegaslamb JERRY LAMBERT (@vegaslamb) reported

    @keepthatplump @espn It'd be a shame if people started going to iTunes and leaving terrible reviews of this album all because you wanted attention.

  • IamDeeskii Cardi B Fan Page 👑👠 (@IamDeeskii) reported

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER is predicted to move down 4 spots on BB100 🥴 , But it rising on SPOTIFY , ITUNES , APPLE MUSIC. So with that being said It should rise on BB100 Next Monday STREAM ALL THIS WEEK ON APPLE MUSIC AND SPOTIFY BARDIGANG. Let’s go TOP 50 🖤

  • jbsrecognition bria (@jbsrecognition) reported

    @allthxtmvtters @jdbiebersdeluxe if you have an iphone: go to itunes & app store > sign into your apple id > stroll down and click subscriptions. You should see it and be able to cancel it before it’s over and won’t get billed.

  • etapia98x Edith Tapia (@etapia98x) reported

    @cristalflores98 Call iTunes customer service billing and have them give you a refund. This happened to me once too and I called them and I didn’t take no for an answer.

  • M_PattersonII Mark Patterson (@M_PattersonII) reported

    @CandiceBenbow @egculbertson That seems like a software issue on the laptop imo 🤔 possibly an update is needed for either the os or the iTunes application

  • TheSlySoul TheSlySoul (@TheSlySoul) reported

    @BombosMedallion There seems to be a licensing issue. iTunes just recently got the 4K version.

  • rbcarlisle Bruce Carlisle (@rbcarlisle) reported

    @Si_G @AppleMusic @ricky_martin @Spotify has gotten awful in the last couple months. Slow, laggy, endless search. I left @itunes years ago and now running into same issues with Spotify. Massively frustrating and disappointing.

  • kleppy321 Brian K. (@kleppy321) reported

    @doublespeak152 @LPDonovan And I would say it might carry over but the #1 issue this article has is that the ratings didn't include data from the podcast app, only iTunes. Well, now the podcast app is the only thing to listen to podcasts on (obviously I mean for these ratings not in general) so this 1/

  • KaylaMatthews17 Kayla Matthews (@KaylaMatthews17) reported

    When is @Apple @AppleSupport going to fix their issue with their devices not updating unless you do it through iTunes.. making my job a living hell.

  • Mrarielm Ariel (@Mrarielm) reported

    @maydayiv @mstudios16 @jadenonfirree @Antrunt @RajaMagDich @9to5mac @ChanceHMiller I tried set as new from iPhones settings. Same issue persists. New phone won’t sync with iTunes older version Mac

  • VishKreative Kreative Kontrol (@VishKreative) reported

    it's wild when you write to Apple support re: a podcast tech issue (i.e. latest episode avail everywhere but iTunes) and they fix the problem before responding to tell you there was never a problem in the first place but if there was, it's your fault

  • ShakiraVitium Shakira Vitium Charts (@ShakiraVitium) reported

    @shakira @Anuel_2bleA Down to No. 5 on Latin iTunes.

  • hungtwink97 HungTwink (@hungtwink97) reported

    @FerFrantaXXX @Grindr The problem is that they banned my iTunes account

  • rebsy Rebecca Schiffman (@rebsy) reported

    @danbedford @Apple @AppleMusic Dan! You once fixed my computer! This worked, thank you!! I still think @Apple should update the error message instructions to reflect the current version of iTunes.

  • StevenJBattelle Steven Battelle (@StevenJBattelle) reported

    @AppleMusic @AppleTV I miss iTunes. @AppleMusic won’t sync and @AppleTV has lost my wish list as well as being pretty much impossible to navigate between the new Apple TV shows and movies I might want to buy. Really hope these issue are going to be rectified.

  • MilitarPaco Fitzherbert (@MilitarPaco) reported

    @StevenMBooth This is true. This happens because of several issues with certain content. Might happen with apps also. However, if you contact AppleCare Support they will give you an iTunes Store credit. I was an iTunes Store advisor.

  • SciFiPainter SciFiPainter (@SciFiPainter) reported

    @SandraRankin_UK @StargateNow_EU Ohhhh no. We don’t own it if we buy it from Apple. Far from. If there’s even a tiny problem with the iTunes Store, like, you know, every day, you can watch it. They replaced nsfw music you already own with clean versions. And you can lose purchased items. I kinda hate 🍎

  • seanfar74732567 sean farrell 🔅 (@seanfar74732567) reported

    @markhopson1 @RevoSaintsPage @DeenTheDrummer @Douglas_Aldrich @JackBlades @FrontiersMusic1 Then I’m stuck buying the iPod copy from iTunes, record companies knew this problems back in the late 90s-00 they didn’t act on it. Now the artist who is the actual person who is the reason we have the music gets lower money

  • TimidTippy Dylan (@TimidTippy) reported

    @NiloJaticoII They just removed iTunes and split it into Apple Music and Apple TV. You can also use your iPad as a second monitor now. One problem I do encounter from time to time is sometimes it takes like 30 seconds to detect my keyboard when I wake my laptop from sleep.

  • MasterKhan_ Master Khan (@MasterKhan_) reported

    @SofusThrane @SalehhZak @oriikima @JmeBBK Nice. I'm just saying your Screenshot is Apple Music. Apple Music is a streaming service + a music player for itunes. It replaced the old music app like 4 years ago

  • iceyrish rish. (@iceyrish) reported

    @IraqiPrick Dropping music on a streaming service you don’t have to be signed to a label though. Jme is just choosing not to and I understand where he’s coming from but he can’t be ignorant about it. People wanna stream his music without having to go HMV or buy it on ITunes that’s all long.

  • MasterKhan_ Master Khan (@MasterKhan_) reported

    @SalehhZak @SofusThrane @oriikima @JmeBBK Apple Music is a music player for everything as well as a streaming service (since it replaced the old Music App) iTunes is a storefront to buy music, that's all.

  • AshlArMarketing Kristof Verheyden (@AshlArMarketing) reported

    @Triple3Health @johndotuk @tferriss @PeterAttiaMD It appears to be an iTunes Podcasts issue. Peter jumped in to explain.

  • derrida04 monk (@derrida04) reported

    @1691UK None of the above . I don’t stream. I buy my albums and save it on my server. Now I will stop buying from iTunes. It keeps trying to connect back to iTunes after I have already downloaded it so annoying ...

  • KindyDreaming Ashley 💜💫 (@KindyDreaming) reported from Edogawa Ku, Tokyo Prefecture

    Found the issue, partly the fact that iTunes settings didn’t transfer over to the new phone, partly my external drive wouldn’t wake up.

  • JayDanielsAU Jay Daniels (@JayDanielsAU) reported

    The whole point of being subscribed to a music service is days like today so I’m very annoyed. Also, iTunes and App Store has been having problems for months. Apple services are really struggling lately. Makes me wonder why I dropped all that money on an iPhone when nothing works

  • zippaty Zach (@zippaty) reported

    HEADS UP IF YOU SUBSCRIBE TO DISNEY+ THROUGH ITUNES! THEYVE BEEN HAVING PROBLEMS WITH ACCOUNTS HAVING DUPLICATE SUBSCRIPTIONS AND GETTING CHARGED TWICE. Check yo shit!

  • mixesntapes Mixes 'n' Tapes (@mixesntapes) reported

    Premiering the truest of them all, Rap Game Tiny Tim, layin' down some bars on his new track, Don't Even Try Bruh. Get it now on iTunes.

  • mnasadoo mnasadoo (@mnasadoo) reported

    @jbdd1293 @fangirlJeanne I check at least once a month to see if this is steaming somewhere. It is not. Will break down and buy it on iTunes eventually.

  • CortTube Cort (@CortTube) reported

    @jourdayen I think it's an exclusive to Apple TV/iTunes but the additional scenes do not fix the problems it had if you want to save time and money

  • wsrphoto Scott Knowles (@wsrphoto) reported

    Just the Mac App Store. Everything else works, including IOS and iPad OS and both iTunes. It seems to be connection issue to download. It worked last week. I'm open to suggestions to test.

  • DhabitahPunk Dhabitah Kamarudin (@DhabitahPunk) reported

    @wehavehalflives I used to buy physical CDs when I had a Discman and there were CD shops here. And I do listen to the CDs. But now, I only buy music from iTunes cuz all the CD stores have closed down. 😭

  • DanielS80958647 Daniel Schröder (@DanielS80958647) reported

    e.g all the movies which exist stored in a database on on that big satellite, and a service like e.g. Itunes. and then loading down the customer.

  • e_kamsy ‘𝕐𝕆ℕℕ𝔸’ ❤️ (@e_kamsy) reported

    FBI/CIA probably took down that album from itunes. ****** was spitting hard bard.

  • ProfessorXXMS Professor XXMS (@ProfessorXXMS) reported

    After what feels like forever Routenote finally got back to me about the issues with pandora and #Splitpart2... it should be on there soon... as for #Splitpart3 not being on ITunes that should get resolved here soon to...

  • lBernardo__ venezuelan doll (@lBernardo__) reported

    Screaming cause everything I had was a hand me down from my siblings and when I got his ipod nano it was full of glee songs and I didnt know how to make itunes work so I would just sit there and listened to the glee songs😭

  • katibughouser KatiBug (@katibughouser) reported

    Epic fail removing #itunes capability from the @Sonos app. What a terrible decision.

  • MomosMnet Carl G. (@MomosMnet) reported

    @witchernetflix @SonyaBelousova I might get that iTunes version soon-ish, but I'd love either a CD or a vinyl release down the line.

  • ImJustCruisin Pedro | CEO of ADE, Inc. (@ImJustCruisin) reported

    @Tevin2Js @6Gaawd Illegal websites and stuff was getting shut down every day son. During that time they still wanted you to buy cds. When he popped on the scene, it wasn’t until that time where you started seeing iTunes start making the transition to start charging for music

  • NeilFazel Neil Fazel (@NeilFazel) reported

    @AppleSupport Of the 343 tracks in “J.S. Bach: Complete Edition, Vol. 2/10”, only 246 track were actually purchased. I spent an hour on the phone yesterday and was told there was an issue with iTunes Store even though Apple System Status didn’t indicate a problem.

  • JonSolberg3 Jon Solberg (@JonSolberg3) reported

    @GunthorTM There’s in issue within iTunes. It’s on their side. Unsubscribe and resubscribe and it should be there. I think Greg is going to talk about this issue in this weeks show. @BBQCentralShow

  • justasom1 Sema Şentürk (@justasom1) reported

    @musicislife2207 @bangban51911935 @spillaristea 7R is already slowing down while havana enter itunes every week and still has good streams also senorita came out 6 months after 7R still sold almost as much and got way more streams than 7R

  • wsrphoto Scott Knowles (@wsrphoto) reported

    ITunes store works fine. No Internet problems except one, HP ftp site for printers drivers (obsoleted one of 3 printers) quits at same point (unsure it's file or time). App store problem started last week with update for extension. Four waiting for update won't download. -->

  • TheAmazingRyGuy Ryan Huelsman / DC’s New 52 Apologist (@TheAmazingRyGuy) reported

    @roundsuperman It truly is a joke. I’ve had library/iTunes issues before last night but the worst would be when I’d download an album and it would be split in two. I’d have to go in and down their job by labeling files correctly. Now it’s like I have ghost music on my phone... a joke
