Apple’s iTunes 7 was met with mixed reactions when it was launched earlier this month. Though it had some nice features, such as free album art, seamless playback, eye candy Cover Flow, and new views, some users complained of poor sound quality, podcast playback problems, iPod synchronisation, and more.
Apple are usually pretty quick at getting out updates, and yesterday version 7.0.1 was released into the wild from the Apple website or via Software Update. A .01 version update means that not a huge amount has changed, but Apple are claiming that stability and performance issues with Cover Flow, CD importing, and iPod syncing have been improved.
I hadn’t noticed any particular problems with iTunes 7, but it’ll be interesting to hear if the previous issues have been resolved, or if we’ll have to wait for a 7.0.2.
