    Command + l (small L) works for me about 80% of the time now. In the beginning it did not work at all. I have a fairly large library, so perhaps there was an indexing issue...?

     

    The more I use 11, the less I hate it. I miss cover flow but I can live without it. I still think they've made a mess of album art. I'm kind of OCD about it and I try to make it perfect when I'm importing CDs. It's still doable, but there's no way to see cover art in list view, which is stupid. I've gone to using artists view, which uses a lot of real estate when you have a lot of singles. No more than cover flow, I suppose, but not as attractive. Plus I still can't keep the iCloud column off the list view. It reappears a few seconds after I've unclicked it in view options.

     

    But once I unchecked the "search entire library" I think 11 is a little faster than the last few versions, which I'm very happy with. I also likene iTunes to MS Word in that it has become the bloated junk drawer in the kitchen. It's nice to see it go a little faster.

    Dude, I would be happy to pay a few bucks if they produced a professional music-player system. And I have about 20,000 songs to choose from and don't just randomly click on one like you seem to...

    Who cares that it is a few milliseconds faster when you spend a huge amount of time now to find your music in this mess (mainly created by not having cover art in List view)...

    Apple usability has been taking a nosedive in recent years.  Regardless of that, why remove such coveted features from an app?  I'm looking for the iTunes alternative for the first time now.

    I think there iAds bugs in the iTunes 11. As It deleted all my music after I updated to iTunes 11. After I replace it, my iphone 5 will not sync. Am not iTunes dumbs and all the setting was pretty similar to any other older iTunes. But it will just not sync! Spent 30 minute placing music how I like. 30 minute resetting up the setting. 2 hour of trying to get it to sync. To you your probably thinking" this guy an idiot" but trust me... It did not work. Sync it air and USB. Switch back to iTunes 10.7. It great!!!!! I would not update until they fix iTunes 11 bugs. Just my 2 cent on how I think about it. Please don't kill me :)

     

    I am very unplease with apple. My iphone 5 arrive with scratches on it... Maps don't function right at all Where I live.. Just those two are my problem with iPhone 5. Now iTunes 11 not working properly.... This *****... iTunes 11 does not seem like it hard to use at all.. I think I like how everything is.. Just only if it had work it be great.

     

    Have a good day/night.

    I have a feeling that the people who designed and built iTunes 11, are the same people who designed and built the Maps application on the iPhone 5!  I suspect yet another apology coming from Apple?!

    Not impressed for sure seems to be a big step backwards . Miss coverflow and seems to be much less intuitive to navigate music library. Also - noticed that many net radio stations that I previously enjoyed are mislabelled.Recommend to go back to the drawing board Apple - this one is a failure,

    iTunes 11 is crap.  Apple, do you ever consider surveying your user base before making huge changes to your user interface.  I have never before seen an update to anything where this many capabilities were either removed, obfuscated, or changed.  No reason for this.

    What we sorely need right now is an iTunes 11 uninstaller that will efficiently and properly take us back to iTunes 10.7.  If you try it on your own, you are in for a heap-o-trouble.  If Apple tries to force us to live with iTunes 11 and not apologize and revert, they are going to find more users bailing out for Windows, or just sticking with their current software for as long as they can.

    Love iTunes 11!!

     

    iTunes 10 was CLUNKY, CLUTTERED, CONFUSING & UNUSABLE mess of a software with needless features and options like coverflow and iTunesDJ. Thank goodness it's gone.

     

    I have used iTunes 11 more in the last 3 days than I used iTunes 10 since it was released.

    There is nothing wrong with the maps app.
