    Worst program Ever.


    Now it is perfectly customized for brain-dead youngsters who will only listen to one genre (Rap probably).


    But don't worry, other programs are catching up quickly. Like, in Preview you have sidebar on left but in Quick Look it is on the right. Almost any action you could do with one click, now requires two; if possible at all.


    Due to forum rules, I cannot say who they are, but they are at work!

    I want artwork back in list view. I want search to maintain view rather than switch to the view for what you searched (stay in list view even when searching for an artist rather than switching from list/song to artist view because I searched for an artist). I want column browser to return to a vertical orientation. I want the minimize bug fixed. I want the season artwork to change when I view TV shows by season. I want coverflow back (though I didn't use it often, there were occasions where this feature in full screen was just what I needed)!


    I know, wah, wah, wah, but I seriously want my functionality returned to me!

    If this is the future direction for Apple's software design, then one day not too far from now we'll have nothing over those PC-fanatics who like to mock us. Let's hope that with Steve gone, we're not on a downward train back to the Amelio era...

    It looked great in the keynote and I was excited to try it. But now I don't know. Some of the stuff from the old one, they should not have killed. Like cover flow, resizable album art, old style grouping of albums by genres...

    Horrible.  As far as I can tell, you can't even open multiple windows.  So how do you keep listening to one play list while looking at the iTunes store and checking to see if what you "found" is something you already have, if you can only have one window open at a time?  I agree with the comment that it seems to be designed for the braindead with limited interests.  For those of us with large collections in multiple genres, Apple seems to want to show us the door. How do I go back to v10?  The only good change I've noticed so far is that the "genius" line is not in the sidebar.

    Cover Flow loss is disappointing, but I was also surprised with the change in the syncing choices that removed the checkboxes for adding / removing apps and replacing them with a box that says install or remove. No real way to easily see what is syncing and what isn't. Also, why bring back the colored sidebar icons after removing them from the system?

    Hate it for lost proper DJ functionality and usability. Try deleting a song from the up next play list, try deleting 4 in a row halfway down the list... get used to the down arrow key. Wasn't like that in V10. Very poor beta testing is responsible. How could they miss so many things. Amature hour at Apple again?

    I rolled back to V10 and will live with the can't authorise account error. Basically I won't be able to purchase songs from the itunes store. Whatever, I'm sure there is another way to get the music I WANT to buy.

    I was playing a song and tried quitting iTunes… and couldn't.


    I had to Force Quit it.

    I really like the EXPANDED VIEW feature, but am I missing something or do I have to manually get this view for each new song (in shuffle mode)? How come the expanded view doesn't follow the song I listen to?

    I don't think beta testing is at fault. All the concept is wrong.


    Normally it should be like this:

    A. Decide what exactly we want to do with the software,

    B. Make the software to achieve A as easy as possible.


    But now, A is completely missing! They simply copied iPhone version because it works so beautifully. Forgot to think about that what you do on computer may be different.


    For example, what if you create AAC version of your library for use on iPhone? Before, at least you could create separate playlists for Lossless and AAC versions, and browse them same way as you do with whole library - grid, album list or song list. Now, only song list is available for playlist, how do you browse anything?


    They even have lost a concept of Album Art! It is still present in the grid view, but what gets displayed in large format is in fact a Song Art!

    What a fail to design software where you need to embed album art in EACH SONG. If you were a student and made a project like this, you would fail for sure.

    Because, professor would not forget to ask you the most important question - "What is that you wanted to do?"
