iTunes Plus

Looks like the DRM-free music is now available in the iTunes store.  An update to iTunes, 7.2, is available now from within iTunes (via the Help / Check for Updates… menu item), and within the View My Account page there’s a new setting that allows you to enable iTunes Plus.

There’s a setting that enables showing iTunes Plus content, when available.  The first thing you need to do is turn it on.

In the Find UI (Store / Search…), there’s a new checkbox to search for iTunes Plus music only:

iTunes Plus tracks are marked in search results with a big plus sign:

I thought the price for DRM-free was to be $1.29; maybe in Canada it’s $1.39. 

I’m very happy they included a way to search for the DRM-free music, instead of having to stumble around looking for it.  All in all it looks like a pretty good implementation.
