    I hate the lack of cover flow!  Please bring it back, iTunes!  I feel like we just reverted back to when I first got iTunes to use with my 3rd generation ipod!

    I'm still on 10.7. I would really love for Apple to incorporate this feature back into the application or at least release a public statement on why the **** they took it out. Moronic move.

    Moronic, indeed. The official stance is that the feature was removed because few people used it. I'm curious as to how Apple would know whether or not the feature is being used. Does iTunes phone home with such information? If it does, that would make me less than happy.

    Why don't they make mac computers super thick, like they were in the 80's then. Noone officially uses the thinnness of an imac computer. What a completely pointless and moronic answer apple gave us. We used cover flow, for the same reason imacs, are white, and were the first computer to be super thin, wt a disc drive in the side.It is aesthetically pleasing, and frankly different. When a person who owned a mere pc, saw one, they were taken aback at first, but also extremely intrigued. Just taking away cover flow, wasn't terrible in itself, but don't do so until you have a replacement idea that is as unque as coverflow. You turned itunes into a bad version of windows media player.

    I agree, with all of my Appleheart. Please, bring it back.

    I would also appreciate if Cover Flow comes back. I'm not sure who would be "few", but I'm one of those "minorities"... I always used it since day zero, and I really want it back. Thanks

    I can feel my ***** shrinking due to the lack of coverflow. Whatever cialis's do removing coverflow from iTunes 11 does the opposite.



    ps: is apple THAT insecure that p e n i s, is considered a bad word?

  • greenmind Level 1 Level 1

    I don't know about that, but Apple's balls sure has shrunk, and I'm not talking trackballs

    Cover flow was really the only reason I even used iTunes. I never really liked apple products anyways. Always too much hassle with compatability issues. Just one more reason to stay away from Apple I guess.

    I miss the iTunes coverflow.

      Its simply just not the same without it. I thought I'd give the new iTunes a chance and get used to it, but it just isn't good enough. Its as if there is something missing. Its identity.

      I have heard many artists that have been interviewed, on radio and TV over the last few months, bemoaning the loss of the vinyl LP cover for starters and then being thoroughly bemused and frustrated by iTunes decision to make the visual experience even smaller.

      Originally, with popular music, there used to be an intimate experience with album sleeve artwork which was a respectable 10" (25cm) x 12" (30cm).

      Before computers came into popular experience, we had to go to the music outlet to buy an album, then the trip home was barely bearable because of the anticipation, the journey's reward was listening to the new music and to study the sleeve art and scrutinise the liner notes, plus anything that was written by the artist or whoever, not forgetting the lyrics in a legible size. I know many friends who went so far as to buy an LP album just for the cover art, or on the strength of the cover art. If you were a true 'muso', your albums were cherished and kept with loving care. Nick Hornby's book, "High Fidelity", pays testament to this.

      Then along came the CD, and the size of the art was downsized, but most of the artists, bands or groups realised that their fans still could get up, close and personal with the smaller artwork, but even better,…  they introduced the CD booklet so that more information could be printed.

      iTunes cleverly compensated for this by introducing various panels or windows to keep all this information contained in the "info" of each track, and eventually came the brilliant coverflow, and what is more you could set it up to have the size you preferred in normal mode, OR, you could just have coverflow alone which was at a large size. I know someone who bought a larger format iMac for the soul purpose of viewing the coverflow albums at the largest possible size.

              What the brilliant iTunes application designers seem to be missing is that the purchase of the album online does not have that same mystical experience between artist and fan anymore. The loyal fan didn't spent money to listen to the music alone they want to be entertained, enlightened and appreciated. They spent hard earned money. By purely clicking the mouse and downloading the album with some tiny cover and a little information doesn't give this experience any special excitement. If the designers made the experience a little more personal after the download. The digital booklet is great, the iTunes LP is even better. And yes, coverflow would really help.

              Another thing, I firmly believe that illegal downloading would be greatly reduced if the artwork was added at a larger resolution, (not some tiny bit of low res, badly scanned art as if it were an afterthought), and all the liner notes e.t.c. were added to the download package to create a better user experience. Again this would also be enhanced by the overflow.

      I know that there has to be progress and I have always believed that progress is the only constant thing in life today!

      BUT, as far as iTunes 11 is concerned, the loss of overflow is a huge step backwards. Yes you can click on the album icon in the toolbar and the sleeve will be enlarged to fullscreen size, but it is not enough. It just doesn't allow you to browse ahead in your overflow of the genre or artist/group for example while, you are listening to something. The new preview is a good addition, but not the same as the coverflow facility.

      All that album art budget is going to be a waste and I'm sure this will eventually influence artist and will manifest itself by the production of terribly poor album covers.

      Apple,…   iTunes,…   please bring back the coverflow?
