CNET 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.

    "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 5, 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?
