Apple As I was casually browsing around today, I came across this blog post. It's about the recently released VLC media player for the iPad, which you can use to play just about any video under the sun on your iPad. The blog post is a complaint about a bit of help text that's not properly rendered inside the application - annoying, but no dealbreaker. Until I actually read the text - this is how you're supposed to get content on your iPad?

I can't count how many people I've helped with iTunes problems. That is one serious piece of broken software.


If iTunes is broken then Amarok is DOA. That is a POS piece of Software and it covers only a fraction of the functionality of iTunes.

I used Amarok once, saw vertical tabs, and I died a little.

Also, this is relevant how?

Because when someone points out that something that Apple has done is a very long way from being perfect he then picks out something he thinks is worse, or just as bad, and that gives him warm fuzzies.

In reality, Amarok is miles better than iTunes because it can actually organise your music the way that you want and in a way that's relevant - not Apple. The functionality it has is also miles ahead of iTunes so I don't know where that came out of the blue from either, but it probably means he knows it's true. Oh, and the vertical tabs are gone.

Amarok doesn't have vertical tabs since ages.

I have no information on how well Amarok works recently in conjunction with libimobiledevice, but since Amarok works just fine with ordinary USB devices with VFAT (generic MP3 players) support, I don't see why any iDevice should present a problem any longer.

I used to agree with you. I thought amarok was terrible( as were all the other linuxy media players) but I recently gave it another try. Verdict: its pretty awesome. iTunes always seemed to be the windows media player of the Mac. You can count on it being installed and better than real player, but still so absurdly wrong.
