The new iTunes became available this morning in anticipation of the the new ios 6 mobile operating system and the iPhone 5. I just downloaded it and I'm pleasantly stunned.
First of all the download took a mere seconds instead of the typical minutes. It didn't even ask me to reboot to finish the install.
I opened the new iTunes and, man, is it fast. It used to be that clicking from, say, apps to the store was sluggish but now you can move from one area of the program to another quite quickly.
iTunes has been griped about for years due to it's bloated size and tortoise-like speed. It looks like Apple finally got around to turning it into the hare.
