    Can anyone recommend a good alternative to iTunes?

     

    Now there's a thought. That way, I could at least browse my own music the way I want to. So I guess iTunes 11 is a reason to buy less stuff through the store.

     

    I guess this is a start: http://www.apartmenttherapy.com/10-mac-osx-music-player-altern-139519

    "Actually my problem isn't about new features. But features they took away. Mainly 3: Dj, Cover Flow and dark Grid View. I also liked the old way of searching. I have a 126GB size libaray. I also listen to classical a lot. The current search is almost useless for me.

     

    Now i can get around the new search by using a 3rd party app. But the other 3 are just gone. I'd like to know why."

     

     

    +1.  Amen

    Try to start typing a word beginning with "a" in the search box. Is it just me or does anyone else get a spinning ball that never goes away?

    My library is fine.

     

    My phone and iPad sync'd fine.

     

    All of my artwork is there.

     

    search works fine.

     

    No spinning balls.

     

    I seriously don't know what you guiys are doig wrong.

     

    And, no, there's no alternative that's remotely as good as iTunes.

    So tell me how to open a playlist in a new, independant window as version 10.7 and earlier supported?

     

    This is I something use all the time and is a definite regression in v11.

    Best thing to do, if you haven't upgraded to 11 don't and if you did downgrade back to 10.7

    Like I said it's what they took away. No DJ, no Cover Flow and no dark Grid View. And my conplaints about the search. But like I said, I already use a 3rd party app that does better searching for me.

     

    Add back; DJ, Cover Flow and a dark color scheme and I'll happily upgrade.

     

    What I don't understand is why take features away? What was so wrong with DJ? ****, Jobs introduced it (and Cover Flow) during a keynote.

     

    Same thing the the artwork in the lower left. I didn't use it much; but why remove it?

     

    And by the way, I did "downgrade". I rebuilt my system from a TM backup.

    I spent countless hours finding album covers for my music that iTunes did not have and now I cant see them anymore becuase someone thought it was a good idea to get rid of cover flow....WHAT???? Not cool at all. Bring it back!!

    iTunes 11 is just SO bad. I am distraught and so disappointed. There isn't ANYTHING that's better and a whole lot that's worse.

     

    I can't believe they dropped coverflow and the little artwork viewer (on the bottom-left)! I even hate the album cover view that you do get when you select something under 'Albums'---why did they have to use the album background color???  It makes the cover look all washed out!

     

    I guess the only choice I have is to revert my whole system from my backup (and lose 3 weeks worth of data!).

     

    This is just SO messed up . . . how could they do this to us?!

    Overall I don't have a big problem with it. I quite like the revamped way of getting around although I had no gripes with 10.

     

    But some of my albums have the first track split off as a sepate (but identical in every way) album. I've tried everything to solve this to no avail.

    Why you'd need to open a playlist in a new window is beyond me. Maybe they decided to omit totally useless redundant functions. Sorry about that.

     

    Here's a suggestion for all of you who don't like iTunes 11, despite that it's a clear improvement. Go back to the previous version. Then quit whining. Problem solved.

    Now that's a liilte more valid complaint, Bernard. I'll see if I can find the problem on my iTunes.

     

    Cheers, Jim

    Have the devs discovered this thread now?

     

    Because, you know...

     

    "Why would anyone wanna do that!? It's beyond me. Totally redundant feature! It's fine, I tell you. Fine! Now quit whining."

     

    Yeah, that seems to be the exact attitude that went into designing this so-called "upgrade." The sad thing is that I would have expected it from a Windows dev, and not from Apple.

    Just sent this to apple:

     

    1). After installing and having my library updated, itunes would not function at all, it gave spinning beach ball, and crashed whole computer.  I had to rebuild my library using the .xml file.

     

     

    2).  My apps disappeared from iTunes.  I had to re-import from finder.

     

     

    3).  Half my album art does not show up in album view.  The artwork is in the file! I n fact if I select "get info" and look at the artwork then it shows up in itunes.  Am I supposed to manually do this for 600 albums?

     

     

    4).  iPhones are NOT showing up in devices anymore.  I can sync with USB, but not wifi.

     

     

    Great update, Apple!  (not)

    Love it, works great here.  A couple small things I'm not happy about but hopefully they'll be addressed, and for me they're totally outweighed by the new functionality and improved performance.

     

    I guess I never used cover flow, it looked cool but I never found it useful.
