In addition to dropping welcomed upgrades to the iPod Nano hardware, Apple introduced the latest evolution of its music sharing, selling and organization software, iTunes. The latest update, iTunes 9, isn't a revolution, but it does introduce some welcomed tweaks. You can download iTunes 9 for yourself right now, but here are the biggest changes:
- iTunes LP -- Essentially, bringing the album experience to a digital format with downloadable photos, behind-the-scenes videos, liner notes, etc.
- Improved Home Sharing -- Share music and videos via iTunes among the select authorized computers on your home network
- Re-Designed iTunes Store -- Enough said
- iTunes Extras -- It's the iTunes equivalent of DVD extras
- Genius Mixes -- The previously introduced Genius feature is now on the iPhone App Organization -- You can now reorganize your iPhone home screens from your computer (finally!)
- Facebook/Twitter Integration -- It's basic right now, but it's there
