New iTunes 4.5 and Features

april 28, 2004

Looks like on the eve of Steve Job's conference call on the first birthday of the iTunes Music Store they have released some cool features! First of all they are releasing iTunes 4.5, it isn't out yet but in the iTunes Music Store you can find out the details about it (there's a big button link on the front page). Apple has also added some cool new features like iMix (publish your mixes online), free weekly singles (nice!), movie trailers (done already on quicktime.com), and music videos (nice!). Also listed as new features to iTunes 4.5 are: Radio Charts, Lossless Encoder (all the sound, half the filesize), Wish Lists, WMA import (of unprotected files only), and a link builder. Pretty decent feature set for an update.
