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.

"Navigating is Cumbersome and non-intuitive!"

November 14, 2014  |  By JesherSpelling

 |  Version: Apple iTunes 12.0.1.26

Pros

None I can think of.

Cons

Hard to just update your podcasts, the button in the top right with you iPod icon looks like a pull down - add to > wow....took me til' after 1AM to figure it out - HELP is awful on the pulldown. They're going for lean - but to a vetran user, it's JUST MEAN and ugly to work with. Please fire the developers responsible for this travesty.

Summary

Apple sure loves their updates, but hates they're loyal fans of iTunes. Never forgave them from ripping out the BURN DISC option. What else would I expect from a bunch of control freak liberals who hate America - they want TOTAL control and I'm sure have installed more ways to SPY on uses and their libraries, content, etc.

"Apple hates it's users"

November 05, 2014

 |  Version: Apple iTunes 12.0.1.26

Pros

It's fresh and new???

Cons

No auto-repeat on album play. Filtering which used to be a god-send, is now limited to 2 fields, usually genre and artist, then you must Scroll, scroll, scroll to find what you need. Or, use the search for everything, which will group together things you don't necessarily want to hear side-by-side.

Summary

I've always been a big fan of iTunes, until now. It's enough to make a grown man want to cry. Why does Apple hate us?

"New update sucks"

November 01, 2014  |  By sandy.cheairs

 |  Version: Apple iTunes 12.0.1.26

Pros

None, this new version is hard to navigate and makes it hard to update any apps.

Cons

It is impossible to update my pdf, bluefire reader and comic app now. I can't pull from my own computer to upload the files. I REFUSE to utilize the "cloud" crap and would like to have the accessibility back.

Summary

Change it back to what it was before this update.

"Great if you like extra steps to navigate your media"

October 28, 2014  |  By sduncan813

 |  Version: Apple iTunes 12.0.1.26

Pros

The new iTunes 12 window is rectangular, so at least it still fits on screen ok.

Cons

iTunes 12 is so bad that even the loyal apple users who buy every new product will begin to question Apple's direction. The biggest problem is the removal of sidebar. The sidebar contained a list of every category in your library, every playlist, and every device. Well it's gone. Now you have to work between 3 different locations, the top center menu, the top left munu, and a half ass sidebar that shows up depending on which of the of the other two menus you've selected. The song/movie info window is abysmal. just text floating around. and you can't copy paste album art anymore, you have to go through a menu to upload it.

Summary

Dear Cnet, please make iTunes 11 available for downgrading
