Tip - macOS - iTunes Views

Date: 21st March 2017

Duration: 04:27

Show ref: SCOM0614

This week's tip is all about using iTunes views to access your music.

The main views all look very pretty, but they aren't very information dense, at least, not enough for my liking.

In this tip, I cover the main views, but focus mainly on the Song view, and take a look at using the Column Browser. The Column Browser allows you to display more information on screen, and allows you to filter your music with a greater degree of control.

Using Genres is a bit of a blunt instrument to organise and categorise your music. What if you have a ton of Rock tracks but many many different "sub genres"? Well it's possible to create your own "sub genres" using the "Groupings" feature.

All is revealed in this week's tip show.

One of the problems of keeping on top of the latest developments in Mac and iOS is the sheer number of updates to apps over time. These can range from minor to major updates, and are designed to fix issues or introduce brand new functionality. So for this week, I’m going to take a look at a number apps that I’ve previously covered on ScreenCastsOnline, and bring you up to speed with the latest updates. 

The three apps are Hazel, Ulysses & Garageband Live Loops

The third and final Plex instalment. Following on from the previous Plex episodes, I take a further look at some of the benefits of a full Plex Pass subscription.

With the advent of the Plex Apple TV app, Plex has suddenly become hugely popular with the Mac community.

Use Plex to organise, play and share your local media library.

Apple Music has now been out for a couple of months, and it’s still the cause of much frustration for some people.

There seems to be a deep misunderstanding of some of the core concepts, as well as a feeling that Apple is perhaps expecting too much of iTunes, by shoehorning too many features into this very old application.

In this show I’m going to try and dispel some of the FUD - that’s Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt, that seems to be prevalent, and try and explain in detail what Apple Music is, and how the various components work together.
