iTunes Instant: Faster And Easier Way To Search iTunes And The App Store

iTunes Instant

If one of your biggest complaint about iTunes is that it is slow then you’re not the only one. iTunes 10 that was released earlier in the month is a little bit faster but just not fast enough.

So Stephen Ou, a 15-year-old developer (can you believe it) from the Bay Area created iTunes Instant, which makes it a lot faster and easier to search iTunes and the App Store.

Stephen OU apparently developed iTunes Instant in less than 3 hours using Apple’s own Search API.

iTunes Instant is exactly what I have been looking for, simple user interface with fast, real time search results (sorry I have been spoilt by Google Instant, the new search enhancement that shows results as you type).

iTunes Instant doesn't just give you suggestions or recommendations as you type in a search query, it actually gives you real-time search feedback (album and artwork in this case) as you enter a query, character by character.

I’ve bookmarked iTunes Instant so I no longer have to wait for the dreaded "Accessing iTunes Store.." progress bar to complete.

You’ve to give iTunes Instant a shot to be impressed and don’t forget to tell us know what you think in the comments.
