    @KayemPhoto @KeltyHeartsFC @cdoddzy @YouTube @SoundCloud @iTunes Cheers, Kev. All down to Doddzy though. Just done my research, he was honest and provided the decent chat.

    @nhikkyB I keep having the same issue, try all the available cards you have you might get lucky There's also a way u could use iTunes gift card instead

  • hufflepuff1986 Hannah (@hufflepuff1986) reported

    @keetfeet I will eventually have a similar problem. Everything is on iTunes at my work desktop... if its mine personally I've also put it on an external hard drive. But that's all over got. I tried to put 3 albums on my phone and it's...annoying. I must not have it right.

  • DjauntyFeller Ismail (@DjauntyFeller) reported

    Bruh, Wizkid has caused serious problems. If that song gets to number 1 on iTunes, it was me. I did that shit! What a jam!!

  • GeoValentine GeocosmicValentine™ (@GeoValentine) reported

    @theovandaele @WhitfordBradley Check iTunes, too. Maybe you can stream it on some streaming service now. Ok, going to sleep now. Talk later. So much to tell, I think I'll send an email.

  • yemeniz1 pissed off (@yemeniz1) reported

    @DisneyLifeUK you seriously need to fix your app interface. I just subscribed through iTunes but your app still ask my to login

  • 330toama Ama (@330toama) reported

    Songwriters—copy write your shit even if it’s just for fun! Because you don’t want to find out years down the line that someone on iTunes is selling the hell out of your lyrics— at that point it’s too late. Nothing you can do but be sour about it.

  • seema5180 Serena (@seema5180) reported

    The Click is now 74 on iTunes Alternative Album Chart, while Burn the House Down is 47, and 100 Bad Days is 57 on the iTunes Alternative Songs Chart.

  • kentbrew Kent Brewster (@kentbrew) reported

    Currently going through a long list of cargo-cult greatest-hits, like: "Make Sure You Have The Current Version of iTunes," "Wiggle the Cord," "Turn Everything Off And Turn It Back On Again," "Try A Different Computer," and "Find Your Error Message Below."

  • john_tyler646 DEJ (@john_tyler646) reported

    Who knows, I could be looking too deep into this, but there is a lot -- and I mean *a lot* -- to unpack here. As soon as this comes to iTunes, I will gladly take another trip down this depraved yet mesmerizing rabbit hole, and once more when it comes out on Blu-ray.

  • varunorcv CV (@varunorcv) reported

    @gruber @sulka @Apple @pschiller Yep, everyone I know who's got a Mac, iDevice, and iCloud sync has this exact issue. Plus, the equally uninformative "Other" category of storage usage shown in iTunes.

  • realmickyjean | micky jean | fka mtc | (@realmickyjean) reported

    @iTunes Quick! Before they all buy into that Disney streaming service!

  • kirt_abernathy Kirt Abernathy (@kirt_abernathy) reported

    @SullyCNBC I was going to let my iTunes service expire and Apple said I would lose all my music. BMG Music Club even let me keep what I didn't mail back, back in the day.

  • ashposton Ashley Poston | Buy THE PRINCESS AND THE FANGIRL! (@ashposton) reported

    @amakeshiftlib I think I bought the French version on iTunes, but the English dub isn’t terrible either!

  • Angry_Jax Jax (@Angry_Jax) reported

    @burning_last @NaNaGsFunkyJunk It’s cool bruh. I take iTunes. So let’s talk about how I’m a widower and have a 13 year old son and just want to meet a nice guy like to take care of me. Oh and I’m straight. Hope that’s not an issue. 😂😂🤣

  • pzr Pat Rice (@pzr) reported

    Mildly amused to see The Ten Commandments in the $4.99 bin on iTunes. It’s Easter weekend, after all. Thinking of the first VHS release, thirty or so years ago: two cassettes, $99. I knew if I waited long enough, the price would come down.

  • Arie67828892 Arie (@Arie67828892) reported

    @supercell Can I make purchases online instead of In game I wanna I am not able top pay on the app for some itunes problem.

  • EpicSteveOhTime Steve-Oh G Foundation Member (@EpicSteveOhTime) reported

    @marycarr5 @ADCsOfWrestling Me tooooo. I do have a iPhone for work and I hate it but it's a company login so I can't use it for itunes or anything unfortunately. Lol

    WARNING: If you've agreed to the latest iTunes Terms of Service, you've just unwittingly filed to adopt my neighbor's teenagers!

  • RashadDHawkins Rashad Hawkins (@RashadDHawkins) reported

    ITunes took it down but Spotify won't. Also a reason for the name change. @S_C_ help me 😭

  • ithebasedette Pikliz & Goku🇭🇹♐️ (@ithebasedette) reported

    I can’t believe it but for once since 2014 I’m considering going back to Samsung @AppleMusic @TIDAL @iTunes SOMEONE READ THIS AND FIX THIS ISSUE THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE AND UNPROFESSIONAL!!!!!

  • autumspice ☆💜TiSh💜☆💜Map of the Soul*Persona💜 (@autumspice) reported

    @GoldenOmelas @RafranzDavis I still can't buy on iTunes it keeps giving me a freaking error message

  • AlysianahNoire Alysianah Noire (@AlysianahNoire) reported

    @DarisanHurston Yes, it should be on my iTunes feed too. But I listened thru iPhone no issue. Hrm. The podcast is Casual Star Citizen. It’s kinda long - just under an hour. 😁

  • BrownMarialice Marialflag (@BrownMarialice) reported

    @plvanover88 @Frell_U One of the reasons I had to go to BluRay, of all the old DVDs to start skipping! Anyway, now, we have everything on the old set of DVDs, BluRays; ITunes and Amazon Prime. One way or another, this is going to be passed down in the family.

  • iozzoa5 Anthony Iozzo (@iozzoa5) reported

    Gonna try to download iCloud, iTunes to see if it still gonna give me problems. If it fills up or acting batshit crazy then I am getting my money back & never buying a Lenovo product ever again.

  • breethebrave fat mama targaryen ☄️ (@breethebrave) reported

    Just when i finally broke down and paid $18 for it on iTunes 😭

  • Roxy_Hart You’re doing amazing, sweetie (@Roxy_Hart) reported

    I’ve been battling an ‘unknown error’ when syncing with iTunes. Turns out my computer was 2 minutes slower than my phone.

  • simmnfierzig Simon Falk (@simmnfierzig) reported

    @givinmeIife Was released on Wednesday... So 2 days for this tracking week. Doesn't seem remotely close to the Hot 100 from that and at least on iTunes it's doing down hard already, so that's not a good sign for it's chances next week

  • Kaynator Mike (@Kaynator) reported

    @husseinkhalil55 @anghami @AnghamiCare @RotanaMousicaTV @rotana @elissakh @RotanaMusic @DeezerMENA There is no problem between Elissa and Anghami, the problem is all Rotana they signed a deal with Deezer giving the exclusivity of all their music to them being on their platform. And took off the music from Anghami, Spotify and iTunes .. Deezer is now their one stop shop

  • dizneywho rose (@dizneywho) reported

    @bradgallaway You can watch it via Disney Now app with a sign in for a cable or satellite. Might be on amazon to buy also though. Or iTunes.

  • IntheCalsZone Cal's Zone (@IntheCalsZone) reported

    @drybones_5 the iphone is a downgrade compared to anything with apple's terrible itunes/apple store ui that has essentially been left to rot since 2014

  • _PlisetskyYura ʏυɼɑ (@_PlisetskyYura) reported

    @katsuki1fan ||OH NO. I had to reset mine because I couldn't remember lmao I made a note to write down passwords when I change them from the previous one because I never remember them. I keep having to reset my iTunes one because someone keeps trying to get into my account -_-

  • vuyoxhamfu__ Gatsby 🕴🏻 (@vuyoxhamfu__) reported

    @midonoqayi Bro , apps jam , phone jams . It’s frustrating I hope backing my phone up on iTunes (laptop) and reseting the phone to factory will fix the issue

  • RandomReduX Ant-Man's Goin' Up The Butt (@RandomReduX) reported

    Why are iTunes and the Apple Software Update program so gods damned terrible

  • gilv Giovanni L Valentino (@gilv) reported

    @MrsKellyPierce It's actually doable pretty easily, at least as one of my coders said... The trick is the App would be shut down as to availability on Google Play or the iTunes store... U would just have to deploy an apk file & have folks install direct

  • JulzyaIsaidit Mile Hi Jewel (@JulzyaIsaidit) reported

    Hey @Honda I’m having trouble with my stereo starting my iTunes at song one every time I get back in the car. Apple said it’s your issue. Help. I don’t believe them. Makes no sense. It was happened after their update

  • Juanx4real Juan 🎸 (@Juanx4real) reported

    @HellRazorDlx IF I were an artist, I would not put out my music on streaming services not even apple or itunes.. You want my music, buy the album. It's not hard to do that. The problem is not coming only from the guy who created napster or spotify..

  • ClayBeez 🥴 (@ClayBeez) reported

    why the hell cant i find the customer service email for apple/itunes jfc.

  • BlueJaysDad Blue Jays Dad (@BlueJaysDad) reported

    Problems with my Apple ID and iTunes on my iMac. One of those “work from home” days that you get absolutely nothing done for hours. This is why I usually go to Starbucks.

  • HannahNewhouse Hannah Newhouse (@HannahNewhouse) reported from Charlotte, North Carolina

    Unfortunately Spotify & ITunes are giving us some issues so we took to SoundCloud to bring you all the details with @StephenNasse.

  • genadyo Genady Okrain (@genadyo) reported

    @parrots @mhp not unexpected but itunes connect is so broken so it takes so much time!

  • _mukovhe moo-ko-bear (@_mukovhe) reported

    @lelowhatsgood Please!!! Cause I sometimes forget my iTunes login details when I lose my phones

  • vmlemon Tyson Key (@vmlemon) reported

    @voltagex Yup, they implemented it as a native, signed kernel-mode IFS driver. Still quite a few bugs, and issues (iTunes can't write downloads/ripped tracks, and you can get BSODs, using ZVols), but it's surprisingly robust, for some usecases (running VMs, and working with VHD images)

  • XanBeans Xhanos (@XanBeans) reported

    Y’all. Go on iTunes (or your respective music service) and look at the reviews for Beyoncé’s album. They are mad baby. 😂😂😂😂😂

  • mrsdawsonstar Sister Amanda 🐷🧜🏻‍♂️💄💍 (@mrsdawsonstar) reported

    @sluttybey I have the Apple Music subscription so as long as I have service I can listen to it since it’s at least on iTunes. Would be awesome if it was for purchase though.

  • BlazerTagPDX BlazerTag Podcast (@BlazerTagPDX) reported

    Also find us on Google Play and iTunes! Apologies for the sketchy audio, we were yelling at each other down a hallway 🤣

  • prettyjuls julie cothren (@prettyjuls) reported

    @AppleSupport Whenever I try to get a new app says I need to login but it won’t let me and I went to settings to iTunes and signed out trying to sign back in but it does nothing but show like it’s running

  • kathfyt k. (@kathfyt) reported

    @0n_My_Own_ You have to buy it on iTunes not down load it off Apple Music. If you download off Apple Music the streams won’t count.

  • glocktan shannon with luv (@glocktan) reported

    1.7m daily radio updates, bwl constantly returning to top 10 on us itunes pushing down newer releases.... we have a hit laid ease

  • DanielSchn61 Daniel Schneider (@DanielSchn61) reported

    @TiVo I used to use it as a server for music on my home network, which was a nice, easy connection to whole house audio. But the "app" wasn't very good, and never improved. Meanwhile others got better, so I switched. Now use iTunes/Airplay.

  • Julian__West Three upturned pewter thimbles (@Julian__West) reported

    @Readitdaddy @OisinMcGann If your house was run by iTunes, you'd come home to find it had burned down because you said you'd be in by 6 and it's 6.25. And the Apple fans would say that that's an important security feature.

  • donnell_jams Jams O’Donnell (@donnell_jams) reported

    @SkullduggeryPod @NSAGov @AprilFDoss @Isikoff @dklaidman @YahooNews @PodcastVillage @iTunes @ApplePodcasts I’ve listened to every episode of this podcast over the past 18 months, and enjoyed them all. But this episode was terrible. Full of bad takes and softball questions. Very disappointing from the usually great Isikoff. Unsubscribed

  • roshni_dhami Roshni dhami (@roshni_dhami) reported

    @AppleMusic @iTunes @AppleSupport @Apple : Apples customer services sucks. Apple stole my money and they promised me to return my money in a month. its been more then a month no response. this is how the apple customer service support works.

  • ashdgee ash4d (@ashdgee) reported

    @PayPal My HULU streaming service account and iTunes subscriptions got affected because my PayPal account has been limited .Terrible customer service

  • Saphire_Blue_ Madrigal (@Saphire_Blue_) reported

    @Cocagne_sweet Yes but they got it from the Japan iTunes and posted it as news. That’s what fan news accounts do. The Spurs accounts I follow post every bit of news they can find. Yes, they should have taken it down but Japan iTunes did the damage.

  • Chr0nicT Chr0nic  (@Chr0nicT) reported

    @mboipat @ItsRedPrimeArmy restore via iTunes, or restore rootfs. When Tw3lve gets released switching from u0 won’t be a problem. This repo is just Tw3lve ony

  • airfire Robert Neagu (@airfire) reported

    @peterzarand @AppleSupport @Apple @iTunes And it does work if you are operating on different accounts. Please understand the errors that situation is is generating.

  • AlfieJapanorama Alfie Goodrich (@AlfieJapanorama) reported

    @coreactivation8 @AppleMusic Have never connected Apple Music to my iTunes library on the hard-drive. For fears of it being messed up. I’ve got a family sub to iMusic which works most of the time. Just that I’ve had this problem twice now and it’s shit. Might swap the whole family out to Spotify.
