I got an iPod Touch about 14 months ago and my experiences with the Touch and iTunes has been bad enough that I'm never buying another new Apple product again. The iPod Touch is one thing, but how clunky and confusing the iTunes interface is just blows my mind because I was expecting a lot more from Apple of all companies. So I'm wondering if I'm just completely missing some obvious options somewhere or if iTunes really is as terrible as I think it is.
The lack of simple drag-and-drop functionality to send apps, music, or videos to and from my Touch blew my mind. I should be able to right-click on any app, song, or video that is in library and have an option to transfer it straight to the device, but I instead have to go to "My iPod" under "This Device" to check or un-check various items to do a massive sync. I'd rather have the minute control to remove an item or two here or there and do a quick transfer, but that doesn't seem to be possible. I also notice a large chunk of my data on my Touch is in the Other category that might be where videos (no videos on it right now) and app updates are stored, but I'm not sure if I can even get rid of that stuff without deleting everything first. If you can simplify or offer help on any of this, that would be great.
I don't follow the third-party scene for iTunes replacements, so I'm hoping somebody here might know of a good program that lets me manage my apps more easily. It may not be the best program ever, but Sony's Media Go program for the PSP offers the kind of drag-and-drop functionality so that I can manage my PSP games, saves, and podcasts really easily that I'm looking for my iPod Touch. Thanks.
