iTunes 9, Facebook Integration?
A new playlist can be created in the iTunes 9 and shared with a Facebook account.
Almost a week back, buzz about upcoming iTunes 9 integrating Blu Ray Discs, Social media and App organization support had surfaced. Now, screenshots of purported iTunes 9 beta build software depicts Facebook playlist integration and third party device support. The images showed that a new playlist can be created in the iTunes 9 and shared with a Facebook account. Also, the third party media player support evidence and chapter wise viewing of video files from VCD or DVDs existed.
From the leaked images grabbed by Boy Genius Report, it appears that a beta build of iTunes 9 has been screen captured. As mentioned earlier about Facebook integration, the new screenshots show that iTunes Playlist can be directly shared from the software. The shared playlist appears in the user’s Facebook wall along with the iTunes link. So, either Facebook integration would be built in or Apple will offer Facebook Connect support.
The images also show third party device support as the in the image Samsung YH-J70 HDD MP3 player is shown connected to iTunes. This might just get Palm Pre owners wondering if Apple is going to disable support for Palm Pre Media Sync, especially after palm released webOS 1.1.0 update.
Movies on DVD can be played Chapter/Title wise. Once the DVD info shows up, users can select the sequences they want to view. Also, in the full screen mode, one can jump between Chapters of the movie.
It should be noted that these screenshots might not be real and Apple may pull the support plug for these features. However, our eyes are set on the September event which Apple is expected to make slew of music related offerings announcements.
