    Hey there

    I'm starting to get so annoyed with iTunes. It's becoming slower, more inflexible, and more useless by the day, as my music collection grows. :sad: Does anyone use an alternative to iTunes (syncing my iPhone isn't a problem)?

    Cheers.

    I'm not really sure if you can but maybe you could back all of your itunes collection into a folder on your computer? It would give you the flexibility to do what you want with it so you can make it the best for you.

    but there are plenty of other site's that host free music files "the majority illegally" that you could use if you want.

    Yeah, I've got it all in one big folder (load of subfolders, mind; it's organised by iTunes). I was thinking of trying Media Monkey or something like that.

    I had the same thought, and went for songbird. Mainly because of the name! But I like it

    I haven't tried syncing yet... the layout is similar to iTunes, no Genius (only downside for me since I quite like that) and no cover flow.

    What I like is that there's an inbuilt web browser. Kind of weird but good!

    Why use a program to organise your music? Just use subfolders then you can use whichever media program you wish (here Foobar beats the competition into a crooked hat, obviously).
