    Wish Apple restore that option.

     

    Honestly I did not like the itune software so much before but I could handle it... I liked the way windows displays by folder and then you are free to put whatever in your folder, drag and drop in the player to create a one time playlist.

    Now I don't even see the point of using itunes except to manage my apple mobile device... How could they make such a mistake???

     

    Like the ibook apps. Wood background as if it was my grandmothers' shelf??? Seriously? Is Apple so low in creativity to have to create mimicks of existing things????

     

    More and more disappointed by the brand...

     

    Not to mention their lotery system for their new products... Imagine you have to hope/beg that they serve you. This word is a bit up side down...

     

    Sorry for this never ending message but it states many current issues I think Apple is getting into.

     

    Cheers (and please get the artist grid view back...)

    Agreed ! Please implement the grid view for artist as soon as possible.

    This mode was the thing why was iTunes best !

    http://snapplr.com/8ebtat least they left the sidebar in as an OPTION and added the colour back. i quite frankly hated it when they made everything void of colour

    I couldn't agree more! It seems that they should have the same viewing options, no matter if you're viewing Songs, Albums, or Artists.

     

    Apple, please please fix! I have to imagine they will, because this seems like an obvious oversight.

    I agree. Artist grid mode is why I liked iTunes so much! How on earth could this happen? Untill now my only gripe was that the EQ can't be "mounted" to the UI. Oh well, .... this is what I get for complaining.

    iTunes (a digital player) was a great way to listen to music. We already have the iTunes store (a digital record shop), so why did you get rid of artist grid mode? Oh, I see, you guys were more interested in integrating the store into the player! Now I understand ! So that's how Artist Grid Mode got destroyed. No wonder iTunes is only 44.1 kHz. I could live with the fact that the clock speed is a little sub par. I use a DAC so it's not that big of a deal. But you guys put the store before the player and ruined my 3rd favorite application. I am so angry about this. I've been begging you clowns to mount the EQ for 2 years, and this is the best you can do? A Bad apple.

    This is why Apple and Micro$oft have such awful reputations. If they both would do TWO SIMPLE THINGS as a corporation, they'd be even more on top.. but have you seen these two companies stock activity? They aren't sweating a word we say in here because they are both laughing to the bank.

     

    Here are the TWO THINGS APPLE/M$ COULD DO TO MAKE EVERYONE THINK THEY ARE AWESOME!!!

     

    1) Stop thinking you know what's best for me. LET ME THINK WHAT'S BEST FOR ME

    2) ALL THE THINGS YOU THINK I WILL LOVE, DON'T SHOVE THEM DOWN MY THROAT. Make them OPTIONS in any update, make these options DISABLED BY DEFAULT and yes, sorry you have to read this, GIVE ME A BACKOUT OPTION TO GET THE PREVIOUS VERSION I HAD, LOVED and was USED TO..

     

    If you ******** did those two simple things as a business methodology you'd be even more insanely successful than you already are... Clearly that largest most annoying generation is in office at the corporate buildings today...

    "Let's change **** weekly and be super impatiant and impulsive!! We'll annoy every other generation to death like we've done our whole lives"

     

    The annoyance generation!! Woot!!

    Check out this WiKi on these brats.. two of them (step kids) are leeching off my dad (okay I know this is WAYoff base) but if you're of these age groups and whining like me about the ******** interface changes....you're generation is responsible... thank yourself for this ANNOYANCE....

     

    "WIKI POST:" Go to Wikipedia and look up "Generation Y"  They have more titles, coddling and milk the teet longer than any other birth-age range...

    Peter Pan Generation

    Millennials are sometimes referred to as the Boomerang Generation or Peter Pan Generation, because of the members' perceived penchant for delaying some rites of passage into adulthood, longer periods than most generations before them. These labels were also a reference to a trend toward members living with their parents for longer periods than previous generations.[67]

     

    Okay, I rant. I am way off topic, but see apple, the result of your meandering unnecessary throat cramming "updates". Instead... Call them "frustration maintenance patches"  You need to maintain my frustration level with patches...

    I too miss the artist grid view - it was a great way of having an overview of all my artists. The list view is much less inituitive and a real disappointment. Album view is not even an option - the list goes endless. Really bad update.

    Interesting article on MacRumor, however...How does it pertain to the thread of restoring the Artists grid view feature?

    Personally, I am finding all of these recent Apple software upgrades to be a step backwards. 

    The lack of Artists Grid View is frustrating to say the least. I have a rather large music library; Manuvering the page feels entirely too tedious.

    I truly hope Apple will restore this simple oversight soon.

    Download itunes 10.7

    Quit iTunes

    Navigate to /Applications and locate iTunes app

    Select iTunes and hit Command+i to “Get Info” on the application

    Click on the Arrow next to “Sharing & Permissions” to reveal the access panel

    Click on the lock icon and authenticate with your A PW!Under “Privilege” set both instances of “everyone” to “Read & Write”

    Launch the Terminal (located in /Applications/Utilities/

    Type the following commands to kill iTunes

    :killall iTunes

    Now kill the Helper process

    :killall "iTunes Helper"

    Now to delete the actual application, use this command

    :sudo rm -rf /Applications/iTunes.app/

    Now go to itunes media folder a rename iTunes library.til to library.OLD

    I agree. the artist grid mode is one of the main reasons why i started using iTunes.

    scrolling through a big list of artists in your library is really annoying. and the auto hiding scroll bar is not making it any easier. its either you scroll way to much or try to catch a very slim scroll bar in 1 sec or so.

     

    good luck trying to listen to let's say van halen or U2.

    I got iTunes and immediately fell in love with it due to my enormous catalog of TV shows; being able to categorize seasons while keeping a single show icon is a huge plus! However, then I checked out the music end of things and about pooped myself, how the **** are you supposed to browse through 2,000ish artists in ******* list view. If they don't update this garbage soon I'm reverting.

    Just one more for the displeasure list. I really hate this iTunes version. So many missing features, but worst of all, the lack of Artist Grid. What a headache it's been to navigate, and the numbering of the songs in columns... horrible idea.

     

    There has also been times when I clicked on "Get Info" for one artist and info for another artist came up with no way to get to the one I wanted. What is that?

     

    Apple is usually on top of their game, but this looks like a big step backward and its inexplicable. =/
