So, apple still hasn’t fixed the problem with trying to download a bunch of app updates at once, but with today’s update, they also created a new bug. Now, when I click on “get update” for a single app, it starts downloading the update, but also sends me to a page that says, “XXX (firstname.lastname@example.org) has no updates currently available. To check for updates for another account, sign in with that account.”
You can tell this error was missed because they did their testing on a very fast network (or with very small apps), as the error screen goes away as soon as the update finishes downloading. So at least the updates are getting applied. One at a very f-ing slow time.
Minor Update: It’s funny, this morning, I was about to post about how iTunes had finally managed to fix it’s grabbing-focus issues, but of course this update started grabbing focus during the “updating itunes library” phase. d’ohwell.
UPDATE2: I could have sworn I had some audible books here at work, but there aren’t any here. We’ll see what happens at home when I update there. I’m also not a fan of the new “pause/stop” item at the top of the right click menu. Talk about solving a problem that didn’t exist, while creating a new one. There’s never a time where right clicking twice to stop a track is faster/easier than clicking the stop button once. If only stupid itunes didn’t lock up every 5 minutes to admire the size of my library or whatever the hell it’s doing. Putting “stop” on a right-click context menu doesn’t do much when the app doesn’t register any mouse clicks for a month.
UPDATE3: I must’ve been streaming audiobooks here at work, ’cause the ones in the library at home just migrated from audiobooks to books. The focus theft is still annoying.
