When iTune (it’s iTune, not iTunes :p) first made it’s way into the BitTorrent scene, it created quite a stir in the community. iTune was/is another music torrent tracker based on Gazelle codebase. It rapidly added new members and torrents and quickly made a name for itself in the BT scene. Since the early days, iTune has continued to prosper – new member recruitment has somewhat slowed down due to closed for registrations but activity on new uploads and indexed torrents is still high. As you might see from the comments to this article, there’s been a lot of iTune invite requests by our readers. Just sign up during this open signup period and you won’t need to beg for invites again.

iTune Tracker

During the first few weeks since launch, iTune attracted members by the thousands – this was when the site was constantly open for signup. However it soon went invite only and as days progressed, lots of inactive members were pruned from the tracker. As of 21/11/2009 there are around 2600 active members registered on iTune. It’s torrent index has in the meantime continued to expand. iTune now tracks over 5800 torrents which includes 5500+ music albums by over 5000 artists. Around 30 new torrents are uploaded daily, which is a good number for a music tracker.

Content on iTune mostly comprises of MP3 music albums. Music related to a number of different genres is available, ranging from hiphop to dnb and funk. Gazelle’s tagging and search features should help you discover your favorite music very easily. There is also a seed bonus system present on the tracker – bonus points are called cookies. Every 15 minutes you are awarded 0.01 of a cookie for each completed torrent you're seeding.

iTune is a beautiful tracker – in fact, it has one of the best interfaces I’ve seen for a private tracker (running on default skin). Nice clean layout, organized toolbar, cool category icons, more themes to choose from – they’ve really got their visual aspects sorted out. Combine the visuals with optimizations and features of Gazelle codebase – you’ve got yourself a decent music torrent tracker.

Signup for iTune is currently open. Max user limit is set to 10k but it’s unlikely that open signups will continue for that long. In fact, registrations could close any time so register an account while you can.

    @SkyWolf, @Jeff,
    It usually goes to the spam folder of Gmail. May be the same with other networks.

  5. Herr // 11/21/2009 08:43:00 PM  

    I never received an email either, nor did it end up in spam box or trash. I'm thinking their registration system is broken.

  6. paul // 11/21/2009 08:49:00 PM  

    no email with rocketmail. nothing in spam either and that was 4 hours agp

  7. Lightning_Struck_Tower // 11/21/2009 08:54:00 PM  

    hmm that's strange. Got it within few mins when i tried few hours ago (Gmail).

  8. Lightning_Struck_Tower // 11/21/2009 08:56:00 PM  

    It was in spam by the way.

    First of all thank you FILEnetworks team for this beautiful review.Some strong and nice words about iTune.

    We also want to apologize to users that haven't received their confirmation email.Our invite system was overwhelmed by the number of registrations.We didn't knew we have so many admirers ^_^ . About the time I will finish to write this comment all users should receive their confirmation mail.

    Also I want to announce through this post that there will be some changes in the future ( regarding the bonus system and a new stylesheet ). We ask only for patience .

    Feel free to report such things.

  19. Lightning_Struck_Tower // 11/22/2009 09:30:00 AM  

    Only around 20 new signups duringthe past few hours mate. That cant be right compared to the number of views this article is getting. As you can see from user comments something is still wrong tht confirmation mail.


  20. Michael // 11/22/2009 12:03:00 PM  

    I also still have not got the mail is there still something wrong???

  21. Beldy // 11/22/2009 04:43:00 PM  

    still waiting, no email

  22. Alexander // 11/22/2009 10:41:00 PM  

    We are sorry for this inconvenience but we have been spammed with signup requests and the email server was blown away, so we had to stop the signups for a little time. Also a "resend validation email form" was created in order to resolve this issue.

    Thank you for your support

  23. paul // 11/27/2009 09:59:00 PM
