  • Apple's iTunes Match Service Released Along With iTunes 10.5.1

    The much anticipated iTunes Match Service has finally been released alongside a public roll out for iTunes 10.5.1. The updated version of iTunes should appear in Software Update and it is now also available for download from Apple’s site.

    Apple made the following announcement on their iTunes page, which confirmed the availability of iTunes Match (see below). For those of you who don’t already know, iTunes Match syncs your music that is already available on iTunes to iCloud as well as completing data for songs that are not fully optimized for iTunes for an annual fee of $24.99.

    The iTunes Match service has finally arrived after Apple missed their end of October deadline and wiped iTunes Match developer libraries several times. This past weekend, Apple wiped the libraries one last time and rolled out iTunes 10.5.1 beta 3. It looks like beta 3 and this past library wipe helped Apple finalize the release of the service.

      Already two big issues with it. 1. Cannot use genius at all on device with iTunes match enabled.2. Cannot sync music videos that were not purchased from iTunes.(also not a huge deal but enabling and then disabling iTunes match on iOS device doesn't work that well. sometimes it still stays on and a reboot is required to snap the device out of it.)

      thought I'd add that this has been fixed. Can now do playlists on the fly. Can also set a song to not play (offline mode). This way it stays in your library but doesn't get shuffled in when playing all songs.

      Not to concerned with Match, but atleast this fixed the "waiting for items to copy" problem I was having during sync.
