    Myself, I've sent several feedback messages to http://www.apple.com/feedback/itunesapp.html and I have heard nothing from Apple concerning the loss of "Coverflow" that displays the album art in the application. I don't like iTunes 11, it doesn't work for me and consider it inferior to 10.7. It is a step-back. I have a lot of apps on my iPhone, iPod, iPad and now concerned there is no choice but to upgrade to 11 in order to keep in sync with my computer. Is there any way around this? Otherwise, I will ignore upgrading as long as possible and just live with the older apps on my devices to keep Coverflow. It is superior to the visual album treatment currently implemented in 11 in my opinion and works great for display on HD Tvs and screens.

     

    I have a lot of album art and playlists I don't want to lose. I've spent a lot of time putting it together over the years and frustrated there isn't a solution, nor Apple addressing my and other users feedback sent to them.

    Do try the screensaver I just mentioned, It's relieved my anxiety over iTunes 11 some for sure. Seems to work good in 10.8 Mountain Lion (some trouble in 10.7 Lion). If you come across any other options to try in leiu of Coverflow, please repond,

    Cheers,

    That's not really all that surprising. The feedback form is very up front about the fact that replies shall not be forthcoming.

    Don't upgrade to iOS 7 and you should be fine. If you upgrade any of your iDevices to iOS 7, your minimum iTunes requirement will be 11.1 and you'll have no choice but to upgrade beyond 10.7.

  • BerryCakesAndBoogers Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Yes, it's true.
    iTunes 11.+ no longer uses the Cover Flow Feature.
    Sorry to dissapoint.

    Were you expecting a response?

    The feedback page states, "please note that we cannot respond to the comments you submit."

    Eh... today was a sad day, lots of ppl are being forced to upgrade to 11.1 to keep their ipods up to date, and there is no signs of a change of plans to re-implement coverflow.

  • Shuyu Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Exactly

    Just updated to 11.1 because ios7.....

    No they aren't.

    If they want to keep up-to-date, yes they need to update.

    But it is not a "forced" update.

    My iPhone 5 will be staying on 6.1.4 possibly for as long as I own the phone. I think Apple has lost the plot here. Not a fan of flat or fruity.

  • Mark Block Level 2 Level 2 (270 points)

    The new iOS7 is sensationally good (with a few quibbles), and may be the best example yet of Apple NOT totally loosing the thread. If I had to choose between iOS7 and Cover Flow, I'd give up Cover Flow and "go with the flow" to iTunes 11.1. Luckily, I have two Macs, so my laptop has all the latest OS updates and has updated my iPhone to 7, while my music system has a Mac Mini that will stick with iTunes 10.7 and Cover Flow.

    Interesting, but not compelling for me. I'm a very, very light iPhone user, mostly using it as an MP3 player. I can't imagine iOS 6.1.4 + AlbumMixer being far enough behind iOS 7 that it would be worth losing iTunes 10.7.

  • affenpinscher Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    IOS7 being good, bad, indifferent... it isn't really relevant anyway. Why did Apple deem it necessary to remove cover flow? Seems like a rather random decision from someone who didn't have a clue and didn't bother to do his homework. For me, it's a deal-breaker. I need cover flow for what I do professionally. I'll always need to have at least one device dedicated to 10.7 until I find a suitable alternative. Speaking of which, I have put quite a bit of time into that and I'm still looking...

    They haven't mentioned why, however, there was a lawsuit brought against Apple for it (which Apple won on appeal in Sept 2012). Don't know if this had anything to do with it being removed.

    Adding CoverFlow back (if that was a plan) may have taken a back seat to iOS 7 development.

  • affenpinscher Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    The lawsuit theory has been brought up several times in this thread already. It was settled and Cover Flow remained in place for several years after that.

     

    I truly doubt that CoverFlow took a back seat to IOS7. The two projects are not even remotely the same size/scope, nor does the time frame fit particularly well.

    It couldn't have remained in place for several years because it has only been one year since it was settled.

    The lawsuit was settled in Sept 2012.

    Coverflow was removed in iTunes 11, released in Sept 2012.

    Regardless, it has been removed and Apple has not stated why.
