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.

"UN-INSTALLED because OVER-CONTROLLING !!"

September 23, 2014  |  By rocminister

 |  Version: Apple iTunes 11.4.0.18

Pros

> Simple and Clean Interface.

Cons

> When I Installed and started searching for Music it started Loading all kinds of Music that wasnt on my Computer??
> So I stopped the Search and tried to manually Load MY MUSIC !! But alas there was no way to do that. They have removed "Add Folder to Library" option. They have removed "Consolidate Folders" from advanced menu. So I changed the address of the Itunes Music Folder to the Folder that holds all my music. But New Itunes would not recognize or LOAD ANY OF MY MUSIC !! ;(
> SO ITUNES IS TRYING TO CONTROL MY COMPUTER AND MUSIC FOLDERS. I t gives me no option to CHOOSE what music I want on Itunes and even tries to Force Unwanted Music on me ;(
> That is why I am UNINSTALLING and going back to a Previous Version :(

Summary

> Simple and Clean but OVER CONTROLLING !! No way to choose what Music I want on my Itunes !!
> Needs to put "Add Folder to Library" option back in menu so we can CHOOSE what music and files we want included in our Itunes.

"A bloated and outdated piece of software"

September 20, 2014  |  By pixelriffic

 |  Version: Apple iTunes 11.4.0.18

Pros

It's free.

Cons

Bloated, slow and unintuitive. An outdated and awkward interface. No FLAC support.

Summary

While I am a PC user on the desktop, I own both an iPhone and an iPad, and am huge fans of these devices. They have yet to be equaled in my opinion. iTunes shares the same distinction, but in the other direction. It was a good day when it became possible to manage IOS devices without using iTunes. I dislike it so much, I was anxious to avoid it completely.

As for a music manager, there are several free tools to load music and media on the phone from your computer. Several are free, and all are easier to use, and have a superior interface.

Clearly, the same attention to design that went into the iPhone, was not spent on 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.
