  • Genius Recommendations Come To iTunes Mobile


    Genius recommendations were introduced back in iTunes 8 and now theyíre finally making their way onto the iPhone and iPod Touch versions as well. Apple now includes Genius recommendations with all mobile versions of the iTunes app. To use the Genius feature simply launch the iTunes app and go to the More tab. The Genius option is the last item listed. The nice thing about this new feature is the fact that you donít have to update the app to use it. Apple has already updated its servers so itís available to everyone now.

    Genius recommendations are generated by analyzing the songs and videos in your iTunes library. It then attempts to give you recommendations for new content that you might enjoy. It can give you song, movie or TV show suggestions and letís you preview song selections before buying. You can rate selections either thumbs up or thumbs down, by swiping on the title to the right, similarly to how you delete emails.



    iTunes mobile has always been a rather slimmed down version of the app. Now that Genius recommendations are finally available on mobile devices, the differences between the desktop version and the mobile versions are one step closer to offering the same conveniences. This may be a minor improvement to the iTunes mobile app, but it is a welcomed one.

      The reason the recommendations don't work is probably because there are people that have 300GB of iTunes content and download every type of song.

      Anyways to stay on subject, this would be nice but I stopped buying music from apple. Amazon is cheaper and mp3 format which I can do basically anything with.

      No I'm saying that because the system is based on what owners of the songs that you have have (you might have to read that twice). So if someone has Rihanna and the Beatles it's not going to turn out well for you if you only like a few types of music.

      It already has. There's a Genius tab in the Featured section. Just as a warning it sucks though.
