I've been watching the debates about iTunes11 and thought I'd start a slightly more positive thread;
(that said, I have already downgraded back to 10.7 and will stay with that until iTunes 12 starts to catch up with iTunes 10.7)
So what should iTunes12 have?
obviously, there'll be a lot of people with CoverFlow at the top of their Christmas list.
bring back the album art preview, and the ability to click it and have it open full size.
being able to open a playlist in a separate window is also high on the list.
fix the search facility so it's not backwards.
bring back DJ view
find duplicates (i think they've put that back already, but I'm still in 10.7)
make the interface look more like a new Apple product, and less like a 1985 Apple product (or 2008 windows product)
get rid of Composer's View? ;-)
none of these 'up'grades fixes a fundamental problem that has been bugging me for ages. does no-one else have this problem?
but i need to explain;
i go out with my iPhone. i listen to some songs that i like and some songs that i don't like (which i promptly delete), and i hear a song that i like somewhere else , so i buy it on iTunes.
nothing unusual there then.
later, i'm on my iMac and listening to some music. again, i hear something i like and something i don't like.
i delete the one i don't like.
i plug my iPhone into my iMac. as soon as its connected, i get a message saying "iTunes has found purchased songs on your iPhone that are not on this Mac, do i want to transfer these items from this iPhone back to your iTunes Library?"
i don't know whether it means songs I've purchased on the phone, which should now be imported onto the mac, or whether its referring to the phone copy of songs i've recently deleted from the Mac!
please can it show me a list???!!!
