    For iTunes 12 I wish Apple would:

     

    1. Acquire a solid understanding of what their customers want, including  experienced users.

    2. Fully test iTunes prior to releasing it.

     

    Boy, would that be a refreshing change from the current way they do biznaz.

    I'd like to have in iTunes 12 the "sound bars", which showed the highs and lows. This feature was deleted in iTunes 11, and I really liked it. I'd also like to have the option of having in Mac the vertical window buttons, as in iTunes 10 early versions. I'd also like Cover Flow to come back.

    This vertical window buttons.

    I thought I'd be positive and think about possible improvements.

    Then post feedback as opposed to only posting them in a user-to-user help forum since we (users) cannot fix iTunes.

     

    If you just want to say iTunes11 cannot be improved, I'm sorry, but I can't suggest where you should go. There doesn't seem to be an appropriate discussion.

    If you just want to say Apple is great, tell your boss.

    I never stated it couldn't or shouldn't be improved or even that you should not discuss it here.

    My boss doesn't care about Apple. Don't know why you would suggest this. Perhaps you should complain to your boss about iTunes.

    I was refering to both the red, yellow and green buttons to close, minimize and maximize buttons on Mac, which in those iTunes verions were vertical, and to the bars that appeared a top, in the player.

    I finally caved in to itunes 11 because I was sick and tired of daily prompts to upgrade and now I cannot minimize my playlist and am so mad at myself! Pls tell me how to get back 10.7! I tried a link thru PC World which was supposed to be reputable but it had a malicious virus attached to it. I spent 2 days wasted and am so mad at myself. It is obvious apple does not want you to create your own playlists from different albums say of sinatra. I am so angry. Please advise. I have a new Windows 7 pc and the only other way would be to get out my old Windows XP which still has iTunes 10 on it. Thank you.

    Hi guys!

    I have been thinking... yes.

     

    Was not iTunes dedicated for music only from the beginning? Now its streaming radio, TV, video, Store, iCloud, synking iphone, Podcast etc. etc.

     

    Would it not be easier to split them up?

    .

    1. iTunes Only handling music and video.No store.

    2. iStore Unite iTunes Store and AppStore, musik and video + Hardware. Buy in one place.

    3. iCom A new iPhoneApp where you setup and synk your iPhone/iPad.

    4. iCloud Separate it to a stand alone app.

     

    Onwards

    Thanks for your thoughtful response. However, I already had the show sidebar and still, you CANNOT minimize the music, no way.

     

    I tried putting back 10.7 and you can't unless you want a virus from an unreputable source, even thru PC World Magazine links and suggested websites. My computer man said go google it (useless). The only alternative is turning on my old Windows XP which I have hooked up to a trendnet splitter box. And that does not include the music I have added in the last year. So I am sunk.

     

    I thought of finding it on my backups (Seagate, Click-free). Apple is just like dealing with ebay and paypal as far as I'm concerned, they just want your money and want you to keep upgrading new products. The workers at Apple get $9 an hour to work from home and are all there less than one year working with no benefits. They are all very top-drawer and never condescending. But for people like them and most people (I did my walk-the-dog survey) nobody seems to care about playlists and editing. Any other suggestions?

    Here are a few iTunes 12 suggestions. (the rest of the debate over the validity of this is post is a waste of air, people.)

     

    1. Do not have iTunes sort movies into "Home Movies" versus "Movies."

     

    2. Allow a common music folder to be shared among all users of a computer instead of sharing a library on a local network, etc. This would prevent multiple folders containing the same music. (this relates to the iTunes Media Folder location)

     

    3. Improve "Find Duplicates" functionality to look not only at track name but also album name. This would prevent tracks on "best of" albums from being included as duplicates.

    I'd like to be able to filter songs from the date i set them a star.Most of my songs have a star. Since I have a lot of songs, when i "discover" one in my database but had it for a while already, it's not easy to remember which "new" songs i just found. I put them in the on the go play list but it woul be nice to have some automatic way where I could make an intelligent playlist that finds songs i recently gave a 3 star rating for example. that's all itunes is missing to me. this way i wouldnt have 10 on the go playlist because it makes a new playlist everytime i sync. that too could be arranged. one on the go playlist where the songs can stay.
