When it launched, songs could only be shared from the iTunes Store — and who wants to dig around in the Store to find a song that is already in their local library just to share it on Ping? Not me, that’s for sure.
With the latest update to iTunes, however, Ping is actually integrated with iTunes. As you play songs or search through your library, you can now click and post to Ping. It’s much simpler, more logical, and the way Ping should have worked in iTunes from the beginning. There’s also a sidebar that displays relevant information from across Ping about the artist you’ve selected.
I’m still not going to use Ping, but I’m glad to see that Apple moved quickly to fix what was a fairly silly gap in functionality.
