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.

"Horrible -"

February 16, 2013  |  By 007rjc

 |  Version: Apple iTunes 11.0.1

Pros

None I can think of.

Cons

It often freeezes. The layout is awful. Its bloated. I would have preferred not to have my files transferred to cloud storage.

Summary

The changes just do not improve the usability of itunes, quite the contrary. I tried to roll back to the earlier version but itunes wont allow that. I am trapped in this version against my will.

"Junk, junk , junk"

February 15, 2013  |  By rbsokol

 |  Version: Apple iTunes 11.0.1

Pros

can't think of any

Cons

The whole thing is one big Con. Terrible, not user friendly confusing interface. I can't even get it to open on my desktop, I have to try several times, and it is just going to do whatever it wants to. When I can get it to open it will not let me in to my ipod without a fight. I find it to be very invasive and trying to take over my music library. I would like to get rid of it.

Summary

Sorry I downloaded it.

"major glitches"

February 01, 2013  |  By AvidReaderCanada

 |  Version: Apple iTunes 11.0.1

Pros

pretty! I like the album view, but I hate that it pops up automatically on selection making it difficult to select more than one album without having to close the list first before selecting more. :(

Cons

95% of program starts end in crashes; if windows is maxed, it overflows the screen. Can anyone tell me where to get a 10.x version???

Summary

pretty, but a real pain

"I hope it grows on me!"

January 30, 2013  |  By T3chGooroo

 |  Version: Apple iTunes 11.0.1

Pros

Fresh Design

Cons

Not as easily navigating as previous version
slow on start sometimes
still don't know how to do everything I could before

Summary

Fairly disappointed so far with the new iTunes, like I said I'm still not up to speed with it so I'm sure it will grow on me once I've learnt how to use it properly!

"Have to agree it's AWFUL!"

January 29, 2013  |  By stevencee

 |  Version: Apple iTunes 11.0.1

Pros

Can't find any...

Cons

Totally a confusing, non-intuitive, huge waste of time, as I'm now going to have go through a whole process of "downgrading" (really upgrading) back to 10.7, so I can get back to my enjoyment of music! This was a major step backwards...

Summary

Pretty universally hated by Apple users, yet Cnet Editors rate it Five Stars/Spectacular. What is wrong with this picture, did the Cnet Editors actually use this? How will I ever put any faith in your reviews again?

"Horrible dont get"

January 29, 2013  |  By tdawggggg87

 |  Version: Apple iTunes 11.0.1

Pros

It looks kind of nice

Cons

So hard to navigate between downloads, movies, books.. it's hard to even work out how to play something, start playing a download early. Seems like a big FAIL.

"Convoluted Interface"

January 27, 2013  |  By Garwing

 |  Version: Apple iTunes 11.0.1

Pros

It's free!

Cons

It's not worth the price.

Summary

Whatever happened to making user interfaces intuitive??? This is one of the most convoluted interfaces I've ever used. It took over five minutes to figure out how to do a drag and drop of a playlist from the computer to an ipod (yes, it is still possible). Navigation within the application is confusing for the uninitiated and sometimes difficult even for the experienced.

"So what is the big deal?"

January 26, 2013  |  By bssop

 |  Version: Apple iTunes 11.0.1

Pros

Great for keeping up with Podcast.

Does a great job of hogging your resources and wasting space.

Cons

Download iTunes and get 4 new programs running at start up!!

Sound quality is average.

Did a poor job with Album Covers.

Summary

If this is what Apple has to offer, I'm glad I use Windows and Linux.

Bloatware at its finest.
