Is Wintunes any good these days? It started off excellent and became pretty awful at some point.

Still pretty awful, but you need it in order to manage iDevices from a PC.

Right on. Never need that desktop client and the 300 other things it installs again. (Usually it wasn't too bad, but sometimes it was.)

Does it work fine for you? With me, it's not that case and I don't know why it's very slow.

I’m running it on three Windows 10 PCs. Performance is fine. What is your hardware?

"How-To Geek" sent out a notice to subscribers to their newsletter earlier this past week. I followed their guide Avoid iTunes Bloat w/the Windows Store Version and had no issues. Only works with Win 10 according to the article. I mostly use Foobar2000 now for music file management and EAC for converting to FLAC files.
