If it's slow for you, there's something wrong with your Mac. I've never had an iTunes lock-up, and I've been using it since day one on several different machines. iTunes is one of the sleekest, most efficient apps that exists for OS X.
It's fully-functional aspect is its greatest strength. I don't need a bunch of different apps that do all kind of things, everything is right there. That's my biggest beef with the iOS implementation of it, I have to keep going back and forth between different apps to do things that are integrated on the desktop version. I have to use two different apps to use different episodes of the same podcast feed!
There are plenty of bad apps out there, OS X's iTunes is not one of them. It's one of the very best apps that exists for any purpose.
Syncing? OF COURSE that should be in iTunes. That's where the library that I'm syncing from is! It allows me to control what I want and how I want it. If anything, iCloud
is the problem. It should have just been a feature of iTunes. If you are logged to your iTunes account, you could just check off cloud sync, and it's done. The way it is now, there are all kinds of people who can't even figure out how to sign up
for iCloud, never mind use it.
