New Release: iTunes 8

Did you know a new version of iTunes was just recently released? Yep, iTunes 8 is now out and it is available for download. So, if you’ve bought an iPod lately or you’re planning to, this tip is a must read for you!

First of all, you can download iTunes 8 by going to Just click on the box that says iTunes 8 Free Download and follow the instructions. It’s a fairly quick process and it’s very easy. Now, let’s take a look at some of the new features offered in iTunes 8. Here we go!

1.) Genius

This is the biggest and most interesting update by far. Plus, it will affect any iPod you buy from here on out. So, how does the Genius feature work? Well, if you select a song (let’s use a Christmas carol as an example), the Genius sidebar will suggest some other songs for you, based on what you’ve already selected. Here are some of the recommendations Genius gave me when I performed a search:

Once Genius has suggested some songs for you, you can choose to play whichever one you’d like. Or, you can bypass their selections all together and continue to play your own. It’s just a neat way to create a more well rounded playlist for your iPod!

2.) Browsing Changes

When you first open iTunes 8, one of the first things you’ll notice is the new navigation system for your songs. Take a look at this:

The new navigation system makes it so much easier to keep all your iTunes material straight. Plus, depending on where you live (I know it’s available in the U.S.), you can get HD TV shows and updated movies any time you want. How cool is that? Now, go on and enjoy the new iTunes 8, my friends!
