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 (10.7) installs fine on Windows 8. It creates a tile on the Start screen:
Opens on the desktop
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).
