  • I've been a fan of iTunes for a LONG time and have received a few free song deals.. including lollapalooza songs...and indies spotlight hits too...
  • I just joined as a few last week, but haven't taken advantage of the free songs yet!
    Kick Butt Apps
  • So... no free songs for long time iTunes users in other countries.
    Thanks Apple :)
  • Of the subject. But where's the iPhone version of TiPb?
  • So you CAN buy friends.... after all?
  • Yeah this fan page has been around for quite some time, especially the free song packs like "spring break", "indie", etc. However, I wish all the sharing was done inside iTunes not taking you out of iTunes to facebook.com. You would think with Apples tight FB integration in iPhoto it would be a little more seamless. Maybe we'll see that in the future.
    OH! also, The sharing feature isn't on apps yet. I share a lot of apps with friends on FB and would like to see that come to the app store soon as well.
  • This is nearly a year old LOL the site AND bloggers are broken today!
  • The page is old, the free deal is not.
    And TiPB often disables mobile mode around big events - for some bizarre reason, it DECREASES server load. (They did this around WWDC when they were experiencing heavy traffic)
  • Ron likes to get the free tunes for kicking it with the hoodrats on set.
  • iTunes has taken over Facebook and even Twitter. With it’s latest Last.fm integration and reviews shared to social networking profiles. I would like to see iTunes become a social network but I doubt that will materialise!
