Apple just released the first update to iTunes 10 with this version 10.0.1. This is a just a minor update that fixes the usual bugs but also brings Ping to the sidebar. The Ping Sidebar basically gives you a quick glance at your Ping activity. Nothing earth shattering here.

It’s worth noting that iTunes 10.0.1 is safe for jailbroken iPhones. More info about the update below…

This is what’s included in the iTunes 10.0.1 update:

iTunes 10.0.1 makes it easier to share your favorite music with your friends on Ping. You can now Like or Post about music right from your iTunes library. You can also easily see the recent activity of a selected artist in your library, or of all artists and friends you follow on Ping using the new Ping Sidebar.

    Anyone else wish they would put the album title, artist, and rating UNDER the album art in the hybrid view instead of NEXT to it? I’m hurting more for horizontal space than vertical space. 

    Is ITunes 10 compatible with ios 4.0.1? Or will I have to upgrade my os?

  • Danny

    Just making sure.

  • Apple needs to get rid of iTunes, not add more useless garbage like Ping. It’s already as bloated and buggy as something Microsoft would produce. They really need to work on their cloud strategy
