Editors' review

An all-new Apple iTunes? No need to tempt us: We'll bite! The look is pure Apple, but the new iTunes 11 is also lighter, sleeker, and faster than the old app. It also comes with many new features and refinements, such as improved iCloud integration that lets you play your iTunes purchases right away on all your devices or pause play on one device and pick it right up on another. New Library Views clean up media collection clutter. Expanded views display album notes in place so you don't have to click back and forth. The new MiniPlayer is elegant. Best of all, iTunes is still free, even for Windows.

The redesigned iTunes layout stresses simplicity. It's classic Cupertino; crisp, clean, and timeless. A simple media player/search panel sits above a toolbar offering ultraquick access to everything you need: Library, Songs, Albums, Artists, Genres, Playlists, Radio, Match, and iTunes Store. If you're upgrading iTunes, you can go straight from the installer to the iTunes store. Since our setup was new, we pressed Scan for Music. The app quickly displayed all our tunes in the Music Library View, sorted by Song, Album, Genre, and so on. As before, playback quality is top-notch.

Current iTunes users have probably already upgraded to iTunes 11. But those of you out there who either haven't used iTunes before or gave up on previous versions, try the all-new Apple iTunes 11. It addresses many of the issues that drove users toward media players with smaller footprints. It's lighter and faster than any iTunes you've seen before, yet it does more than ever. Some familiar yet missing features (like the sidebar) are still available as options, too; only now you have a choice. We didn't try the Match service, but it seems like cheap insurance for large libraries, and it includes instant access anywhere with all your devices. If you're looking for a single app to handle your music and media libraries, your digital downloads, and your devices, we suggest taking a bite of the all-new Apple iTunes.

    "Quite terrible"

    July 22, 2014   |   By Bradbullitt

    Version: Apple iTunes 11.3.0.54

    Pros

    The UI... that's all.

    Cons

    How can you give 5 stars to this? Please, tone down your Apple maniac's speech, this is ridiculous.
    The program is just awfully instable and the tons of updates haven't fixed that.

    "Cannot scroll album view alphabetically"

    May 21, 2014   |   By gp_toth

    Version: Apple iTunes 11.2.0.115

    Pros

    Have not found anything that would recommend installing this update.

    Cons

    Previous version allowed you to move through albums by typing letter of first name of artist, e.g., "F" for Frank Sinatra. Current version does not have this feature. With large library, absence of this feature is very inconvenient.

    "Hijacked My Ipad and assigned someone else"

    May 14, 2014   |   By mswillowglen

    Version: Apple iTunes 11.1.5

    Pros

    Pro? Are you kidding?

    Cons

    Overnight my iPad that I use for business was given my husband's ID, email and phone number as Default. "Genius Bar" spent and hour and claimed the verified backup email is "a different person" i.e. not me. They, and before Genius Bar, two hours with telephone "support" emailed a password reset. Four emails to reset password and none of them arrived. (Of course I checked bulk) Genius Bar said iTunes could not accept that I am myself, despite standing in front of them with drivers license, credit cards and business cards with the email in question. They advised me to "open a new iTunes ID" so I could use the iPad messaging. I set up a new one and learned that "all email I send from the iPad will have that BOGUS email address INSTEAD OF THE ONE MY BUSINESS HAS USED FOR THE LAST 20 YEARS.

    Summary

    Apple iTunes has ripped me off for movies, and TV shows in the past. Complaints were useless. I haven't used iTunes for anything but buying apps in the last year. Now iTunes has hijacked my business and my iPad.

    "Steve Jobs is Rolling Over"

    May 07, 2014   |   By makesoftwareeasier

    Version: Apple iTunes 11.1.5

    Pros

    There are none. Zero. Zip. Nada. Amazon is looking better and better and I hate Amazon. Is that enough Pros?

    Cons

    Scrolling: doesn't work
    Finding TV shows I own: doesn't work
    Serious steps backward in quality: totally
    I can't believe this is what counts as the new iTunes. Several days ago, I downloaded most of a TV season. I can't get to the shows because the scroll bar doesn't work. I can't fast forward through shows because it kicks me out of the list. Basically, I now own a bunch of TV shows that I can't watch. Oh and if I pause the show, it freezes and I can't resume. Pause is not stop, people. If there was a less-than-one-star rating possible, I'd give it. This sucks stupendously. Apple should be embarrassed.

    "Incomprehensible"

    April 27, 2014   |   By Chrisp9au

    Version: Apple iTunes 11.1.5

    Pros

    None that I can find (the last 4 words were added to comply with CNET requirements, 4 letters is not enough!)

    Cons

    Everything (10 letters minimum!)

    Summary

    Bought an Ipod Nano, installed Itunes, attempted to delete the one and only song on the Ipod, but Itunes offered no way to delete the song, the interface is totally non-intuitive.
    Solution: Itunes uninstalled, CopytTans Suite installed, problem solved!

    "Worst consumer experience since dentistry"

    April 10, 2014   |   By catsbreath

    Version: Apple iTunes 11.1.5

    Pros

    It lets me download current TV shows, music, movies to my computers and i-devices.

    Cons

    • It has a convoluted and weird interface;
    • It doesn't remember my purchases automatically and often prompts me to buy stuff I've already paid for;
    • It posts TV episodes days after they are posted elsewhere;
    • Customer support is via email only, it takes days, and the first few emails are boilerplate, showing they haven't read my initial query;
    • It's buggy, and when a bug results in a charge to my account, they usually will not refund it no matter what;
    • There's very little documentation and what there is doesn't address major issues.

    These are only a few of the 'cons'. The iTunes store, especially, is a miserable experience.

    Amazon.com offers amazing service for streaming content. But their content only downloads to their software, which is clunky & buggy, so if I want to watch offline I'm stuck with iTunes. I hope Amazon gets their act together for downloadable content on the Mac/iOS. If and when they do, iTunes is toast.

    Summary

    Did Apple hire Microsoft and Dell employees to design this piece of junk?

    "Not the best but it works"

    March 15, 2014   |   By alexmonte

    Version: Apple iTunes 11.1.5

    Pros

    It manages songs and videos and it plays them properly. You can sync different devices but it's hard to manage multiple devices or multiple computers. I use it fairly often.

    Cons

    It's not the best. After each new update there are bugs and often they don't fix bugs from the last update. It's pretty glitchy but it works.

    Summary

    It's okay but it could be a *lot* better.

    "Apple is the new Microsoft"

    March 05, 2014   |   By vtkarl

    Version: Apple iTunes 11.1.5

    Pros

    I didn't have to rebuild my library. I used iTunes once in 2004 and now I'm to lazy to find something better.

    Cons

    Very difficult to impossible to purchase a physical DVD and put it on your iDevice. Very difficult to manage multiple devices with different content. Does not integrate with Audible.

    Summary

    My favorite comment: Apple is the new Microsoft.

    Once my old iPod classic dies, I'm out.

    Also, what the heck, CNET editors? Did Apple pay you or are you just afraid of them?

    "Excellent software."

    February 22, 2014   |   By weegee2899

    Version: Apple iTunes 11.1.4

    Pros

    Individual songs are not that expensive.
    Easy to use.
    Has a wide selection on the store.

    Cons

    Froze up my computer one time.
    Can take a long time to load up.

    Summary

    What's with all the bad reviews around here?

    "One word - Terrible!"

    February 06, 2014   |   By kitty1949

    Version: Apple iTunes 11.1.4

    Pros

    There are none that I can use.

    Cons

    It's like a blank sheet of paper. Nothing there that would give me satisfaction in using it. Gives you a feeling of having no control.

    Summary

    Don't waste your time with it. This "style" of software is infuriating at best. And I fear this is all we're going to see in the future. If so, I'm dropping out. Newer is not always better.
