iTunes 8.2 Contains Strings for VoiceOver, Nike+, Radio Tagging

Poor iTunes 8.2, not even a week and its code has been sifted and (some of?) its secrets laid bare. Apple Insider reveals details including:

  • radio capabilities along with a corresponding ability to tag songs so that they can later be purchased from the iTunes store
  • additional string shows the ability to change VoiceOver settings to manage aspects of the Nike+ application

So, Nike+ like the iPod touch, VoiceOver like the iPod shuffle -- looks like Apple isn't only adding new features to the next gen iPhone, but leveraging features they've added to the rest of the line since the last gen iPhone. Good way for Apple to keep the iPhone "the best iPod we've ever made", isn't it?
