    so, I have +/- 1800 albums with cover. I decided to test the coverstream 2.6.6 on two different configurations :

     

    1) Mac in 10.8 - itunes 10 : no problems. All my covers appears in CS

     

    2) Mac in 10.8 - itunes 11 : can only see less than 10 covers in CS. All the others have only a music note logo.

    Are you managing to run 10.7 and 11 on one Mac?  When I installed 11 it removed 10, I reverted asap, so haven't really tried 11, just looked for cover flow and didn't find it!  If we could have 10.7 and 11 running from 1 library at least could try and get to like 11 so when they issue 12, with cover flow, we'll be ready!

  • Shuyu Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    no, I tested this on 2 differents macs and a duplicated itunes library.

    Yes - unless you need to change playlist, or some other setting that isn't available in Cover Stream, you just run it from Cover Stream. iTunes sits in the background - you can minimise it or close the window - and supplies the music.

    Cover Stream is too much of a stand-alone deal. (And it seems to be end-of-life.) It doesn't integrate with iTunes' playlists and doessn't at all replace the loss of Cover Flow (although it does recognize all my artwork). Apple needs to work on the next generation of Cover Flow within iTunes. There are no functional third-party alternatives.

    I could live without cover flow IF the rest of iTunes 11 worked. It doesn't. If I am in a category - Jazz for example, I cannot listen to all of the albums one after the other. iTunes stops after the first album and I have to manually move to the next album. I can't uncheck songs I prefer not to have.

  • branfordman54 Level 1 Level 1 (90 points)

    You're right. Apple broke a lot of features that didn't need to be touched. iTunes 11 might as well have been developed for the PC. It's no longer elegant, is now counter-intuitive and just plain doesn't do what you try to make it do. This doesn't bode well for Apple's future if this is what they come up with for a supposedly major "upgrade".

    Thanks for upgrading to iTunes 10.7 

  • saharinvenezia Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Is there anyway of uninstalling iTunes 11?!!! I despise the new update! I WANT MY COVER FLOW BACK!!! I have never been so upset with an Apple product until now! I was about to break my mac because I lost my cover flow! I spent so much time adding album artwork to the cover flow because I love how it looked like a jukebox! Not only that, but full screen is gone! SERIOUSLY?! Are you trying to **** people off and lose faithful customer?? Because you sure did! Steve Jobs had it right, who messed with this?!!! BRING BACK THE COVER FLOW!!!!!!!!!!!

    It seems that iTunes 11 breaks the Pure Music memory play feature for live albums, and so I was suspecting the removal of Gapless Playback as the cause. Not sure, just guessing, but Pure Music uses the Gapless metadata tag to know when to load more than one track into RAM. I'll have to talk to the developer about whether it can be fixed.

    For the record, a new build of Pure Music is out now and it fixes the Gapless Playback problem.

    Add another that already downgraded to 10.7

     

    I thought it might take a few minutes being very Mac tech savvy, yet by the time Apple TV, iPhones, iPads and the like are all configured again to sync up, a solid four hours had passed.

     

    Over time it made sense to migrate friends and family to Apple products as there was less user frustration. But I can already anticipate the calls coming in for help, as well as the disblief, from my circle of users. I get just as much negative feedback as Apple does when something doesn't work well.

     

    It is pretty stupid to think that never upgrading is going to solve the all the gaps, though it does put off the reality that some day, probably in the next year or two, that after more than three decades of being a dedicated Apple fan, I'll eventually drift away to other devices or platforms that focus on how people use devices, in lieu of wanting to force users to a cloud model for the sake of controlling content - Apple and Google are starting to look a lot alike.

    I don't think you're alone in thinking like that. I'm getting really tired of having to modify, replace or upgrade my own stuff just because Apple deems I must.

  • Patrick Weisser Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Yeah I've bought into the whole Apple ecosystem with an Apple TV and all, and I was really loving everything they did until Apple messed up iTunes. Now that one hugely important application threatens everything because it is central to all my Apple devices (iPhone 4s, 2 iPads, many iPods, etc). I have gone back to iTunes 10.7 and have my Cover Flow back and I'm loving it everyday.  I figure I can hold out for a few years at most, blocking all upgrades to my other Apple devices to keep them compatible with iTunes 10.7.  I'll be buying a new iPhone next year, so worst case is I may have to sync that using the latest iTunes, but I'll get some cheap Windows machine for that very purpose, copying music and pictures to it from my Mac as needed.  iTunes 10.7 will remain at the heart of my Apple ecosystem until Cover Flow is back, or until I'm forced to move to a new platform, which would be really sad but something I would do if Apple does not make iTunes whole again.  When Apple treats us right it's a beautiful thing, but all this just reminds me how much we're all at their mercy.  At least I still have physical possession of my purchased music, and I can take that elsewhere if Apple really turns its back. No wonder they are so anxious to wipe out that last little bit of independence we have by trying to get us to just stream music from iCould, so that we no longer have physical possession of our music files, cover art, etc.
