I frequently transfer music to my Apple iPod.

  • Is there any compatible version of iTunes player for Windows 8?
  • Will it launch from the Desktop or as a Windows App on the Start Screen?

The current version of iTunes supports Windows 8 – Ramhound Nov 5 '12 at 11:41
Is it desktop based or needs to be installed from Windows Store? – Sant14 Nov 5 '12 at 11:43
@Saint14 - iTunes is only a desktop application at this time. Its very unlikely iTunes will be found on the Windows Store. – Ramhound Nov 5 '12 at 12:53

The current version (10.7) installs fine on Windows 8. It creates a tile on the Start screen:

Sadly, it is not able to detect my correct language.

Any application that runs on Windows 7 should run fine on Windows 8. It won't run on Windows RT, which can't run desktop apps (apart from special versions of Office, pre-installed with Windows RT).
