10.3 is finally live (at least for me in NYC). Just finished downloading it.

iTunes 10.3 Available Now. Go to App Store. Click purchases. It'll direct you to a page to Download iTunes 10.3

Unless it's by design, which would be lame, you can't see any of the free songs you've purchased from iTunes weekly free songs in the Purchased section.

You also can't see any of the in-apps purchases.

Come on Apple get it together.

That's how Home Sharing works.

You sir, may have just reinvented my whole iOS ecosystem!
Thank you.

I signed up simply to write that...


oh - and for clarification to others:
straight from the iTunes T&C's Usage section: "(iii) You shall be able to store iTunes Products from up to five different Accounts at a time on compatible devices".

The unknown is how iCloud behaves during Restores & Backups I guess.

At first with iTunes on PC and Mac I was wondering where I could see the history of my purchases. You have to go to iTunes Store, and then there's a new "Purchased" link on the right hand side.

It's not on the left hand side of iTunes items.

In case anyone's been trying to find it.

I have apps from two or sometimes three different AppleIDs on my devices. You have to re-authenticate with the AppleID associated with an app when you want to update it but other than that you can use the app freely.

For DRM music and videos I think it works as well, you just have to Authorize in iTunes that AppleID - if you can play back that DRM music and video in iTunes you can dump it onto your iDevice.

Now iCloud will be interesting because it looks like it's only going to be for ONE AppleID at a time.

^^^^^^^^^ THIS ... Wait for iTunes Match. You didn't think Apple would upgrade you to 256kbps AAC DRM-free for FREE did you?

On a separate note I'm not seeing any music videos showing up as "purchased". Ah well. But seeing my App, Music and Book purchase history available on any iDevice and Mac and PC is pretty cool.

Why not? I would think for apple it would be much easier to just have one copy of the song on their servers. Instead they have two (one of which they haven't sold in years) and they're keeping track of which version people had? Seems pretty insane, much easier to just send out the 256 and be done with it. And when people start signing up for iTunes match, are they going to send out all those songs again at the higher rate? Definitely seems like a head scratcher to me.

For me a big question about iTunes match is stuff like lyrics. I've added them to a bunch of my songs, if iTunes isn't going to copy them over automatically that sure makes using the cloud version less appealing. How are they going to handle "upgrades" in general? Getting all new versions is cool but it will take a ton more hard drive space - is it safe to delete the old versions because the new ones are kept forever, or do they somehow expire if you cancel the service.

Also, while 10.3 is still 32 bit, looks like 10.5 will finally be 64. About freaking time.

I was able to update iTunes this morning and selected to have purchased songs download automatically. Now, midday, when I usually have 85% battery life left I have 38% and it's dropping quickly. I've also noticed that my phone is much warmer than normal. Anyone else? 37% now : (

Let me start by saying this is not a complaint, this service is sweel as heck!

That said I thought everything was to be 256k - Im getting my old tracks bought before the 256 k transition in 128 - is the new bitrate only for the $25/Yr plan?

BTW This service makes me regret getting all moral a few years ago and trashing my collection from Kazza/napster/bittorrent because now all that will be legit with this. (im sure the eula speaks against that but come on - I have one word Cent-iPad.)

And in conjunction with iCloud's announcement, Apple files a long string of 11 separate trademark applications.
