Short Note: iTunes 9.1 Update Renames “Applications” Tab “Apps”

| News

The iTunes 9.1 update released Tuesday included a small change we just noticed: The Applications tab when managing your iPhone or iPod touch is now called simply “Apps.” The change brings iTunes in sync with its own nomenclature as used in the App Store.

(It was our own Dave Hamilton that noticed the change, but he was kind enough to let this reporter look like a superstar and write the story.)

Update: Apple also changed the listing under Library in the left-hand column to “Apps,” as well (and yes, yours truly has both many podcasts to listen to and apps to update, thank yo very much.)

the podcast section was changed, contextual menu on podcasts start with play now instead of update (a change i don’t like) but mark unwatched, mark watched has been renamed and moved up the contextual menu (a change I like )
Apparently no ability to mark a whole podcast as “played”

and I miss “Update all” in the update apps section. it won’t update all if you use 2 iTunes account as it will bug you to “buy” again.

“Audiobooks” is now “books” :p
