Ping finally gets proper iTunes integration

Filed under: ,

Call me crazy, but if you’re going to integrate a new social network into your desktop media library app, it might be a good idea for users to be able to share the items in their library from the get-go. That wasn’t the case with Ping, however.

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.
