Everything you need to know about Apple's iTunes, including iTunes desktop software on Windows and Mac, iTunes Store on iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, and iTunes in the Cloud on iCloud

iTunes started off as Apple's desktop music player for Mac but has since become so much — perhaps too much! — more. iTunes on the desktop now runs on Mac and Windows, and in addition to playing your music, TV shows, Movies, podcasts, and more, also manages and syncs all of that, as well as apps and games, to your iOS devices via USB. The iTunes Store, which on the desktop includes the App Store and the iBookstore, is where you buy all your content. And if you're using iCloud, it's where you re-download iTunes in the Cloud, and manage iTunes Match.

Veronica Mars movie now live on iTunes!

It's not normal that a movie goes live on iTunes the same day it hits movie theaters but then Rob Thomas' Veronica Mars isn't exactly your normal movie. Not only does it reunite the cast of the original TV show, including Kristen Bell (House of Lies) but it received its backing on Kickstarter, the popular crowd-funding platform. Veronica Mars, if you're not familiar with it, was delightful — Buffy sans slayers. It lasted two and half seasons before it was cancelled and the movie's been a longtime coming. I backed the Kickstarter, bought tickets to the premier last night, and am download the digital version now. If you've been waiting for it as well, it's time to bring it on!

App Store search is horribly broken. We all know that. So it came as no surprise when a reader asked me how we — the people who write about them all day — find anything on the App Store. The short answer is a little creativity and a lot of tenacity. The long answer is best given in the form of a recent example. Here it is!

How to use Home Sharing to access your iTunes library on your Apple TV

Home Sharing is a great way to stream content from your Mac right to your Apple TV. It lets you quickly and easily get anything from the iTunes library on your desktop to the HDTV without it having to be on Apple's servers, like iTunes in the Cloud, or you having to be at your computer, like AirPlay. It's an older feature, more pull than push, but for home movies, personal video collections, ripped CDs, and more, it still works great. Here's how!

Researchers claim iOS multitasking exploit could allow taps, clicks to be monitored on iPhone, iPad

An exploit in the way iOS handles multitasking may allow the touch-equivalent of keylogger-type attacks — where your input is recorded in order to discover your passwords and other data — to work not only on jailbroken iPhones and iPads, but on any device. It would require a malicious app to be created, to get past App Store review, and to get installed onto your device, which is a complex chain and not one anyone has claimed to have actually seen happen yet. But according to Min Zheng, Hui Xue, and Tao Wei of FireEye, it is possible:

App Store now rejecting Flappy Bird copy-cats

Flappy Bird became number one on the App Store before the developer pulled it, but that just left a huge sucking vacuum for a ton of copy-cat apps to try and make some money in its stead. Thankfully, Apple — and apparently Google as well — is now rejecting apps with Flappy in their title.
