    This is called "Dumbing Down the Software" for all of us who can't think anymore.

     

    There are so many inconsistencies in this applications that it would take me all day to write them down.

     

    I already sent screenshots and comments to an Apple iTunes engineer but no reply yet.

     

    I can't believe I am actually thinking of using Amazon or something else because it frustrates me every time I open it and NO the sidebar does not fix it. The whole thing is screwed up now!

    Apple is doing what they want and feeding us crap. what happend to apple engenuity ? I thought they were mart. how stupid a team can be to come up with this crap. I have tried to no upgrade since my friends warned me about it , but my computer one day did it on its own, looking for a way to downgrade back. Apple treats us like idiots and we just take it because they thing we have no other hoice and we eventually get used to it. What a crap of Itune team. plain stupid.

    I bought Enqueue from the App Store and it will use your iTunes music library. It provides a much better experience organizing your music and playing it. The playlists are weak but overall the program is pretty good. There are other alternatives. I wouldn't uninstall it because you will probably run into issues later.

    Hi!

    You're ever so right! And Apple doesn't seem to care a bit although, so I presume, a great lot of people have sent their negative comments to Apple. With the help of some people here I have managed to downgrade to iTunes 10.7. I don't exactly remember how, but if you look through the comments, you will surely find the right one. You have to download iTunes 10.7 and change the name of the iTunes library. A programme called pacifist will help to reinstall 10.7. Sorry for not being of more help.

    The problem I have now are the updates to iTunes that are constantly coming in, usually combined with updates to other programmes. So I delete the tick from the box for iTunes. Then my computer tells me that I must connect the plug to the electricity ... and the tick is there again and starts loading iTunes 11.2.  This is really harassing.

    I just get frustrated everytime I use iTunes to just play music because they made it more difficult to find albums and it loses it's place all the time so you have to re-search for what you were on before.

     

    So far the Enqueue App I bought last night from the App Store is working good (not frustrating ;-)

     

    It's probably better to just leave iTunes 11 and get alternatives to do what you want with it. That way all the syncing, iCloud, Store are still working.

     

    If you get another program like Enqueue you will have to download all your music from the iCloud though.

    I uninstalled iTunes 11 and would recommend everyone to do so. Everything is working well now that I've got 10.7. again. iTunes 11 destroyed all my playlists, jumbled up the tracks of my audio books, deleted the covers etc., and was devastating. It made a mess of my whole system.

  • magali mistral Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Well I don't see why I should buy anything more from the iTunes store if it doesn't work with 10.7. I can get my music and audio books from a lot of other places. And I really refuse to buy some other programme just in order to cope with useless iTunes 11.

    I have no problems with iTunes 10.7 and the iTunes store.

    iTunes 10.7 and the Store work fine for me, as well.

    Man I hate this new iTunes. I've already posted more complaints in this or another thread, but here's one more:

     

    When you type an artist into the search box -- say, "Bowie," -- all his tracks come up. I am used to being able to hit play, turn shuffle on, and have a random Bowie mix. Now, when I do this and go into another area of iTunes (importing a CD, for example) it loses my search terms, so the next track that comes up is not Bowie.

     

    How can anyone have thought this was what we wanted?

     

    Or is this a real mistake?

     

    My lord, please get this program fixed, back to the way it was (under Mr. Jobs).

    There are so many legitimate gripes here. In order for Apple to really hear them though, please take the time and give Apple feedback at the link below. Apple doesn't monitor these discussions, so be nice and explain how important it is to restore this app to it's prior greatness. Don't just gripe, be constructive, tell them the feature(s) you want to enhance iTunes. Write it up as an enhancement to iTunes 11. It's OK to tell them to make it like the feature was in iTunes 10.7.

    Had been hoping that Apple would fix annoyannces and still waiting, unfortunately.

     

    I just left the following feedback:

     

    1. When shuffle by album is on, adding an album to up next with "play next" should add it after the currently playing ALBUM not the currently playing song.

     

     

    2. when shuffle by album is on, and viewing a playlist in grid view, double clicking an album should play that album AND populate random albums in the up next queue, not repeat that album.

     

    3. The up next queue list itself could be more album-centric. There could be an option to view grouped by albums, or collapsed into albums, or track #/count / disk # count info at least.

     

    4. There should be a context menu in the up next queue to remove the entire album.  at least opt-click the X should do that.

    Just download Songbird. It synchs your itunes library and playlists and it's completely customisable, so you can get an add on or skin that works much like the Itunes of old. Also, Songbird is just a much better, more modernized experience and has all kinds of really cool features, like downloading entire playlists from music blogs with one click instead of manually downloading each mp3 individually. Itunes is old balls, if they want to get all Microsoft on us, I say find something new.

  • pgoodwin Level 1 Level 1 (120 points)

    Songbird got decent editors reviews but terrible user reviews on CNET, but the most recent reviews I saw were a year old. How is it now?

     

    I went back to iTunes 10.7 and am very happy with it.

  • Gregg Green1 Level 1 Level 1 (65 points)

    Not bad after you get used to it. It's free and automatically imports song lists from iTunes without duplicating media. Not as pretty as iTunes but it uses plugins that can change the look. The search is better than iTunes,
