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.

    "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.
