"STOP SLOWING DOWN MY PC"

July 02, 2015  |  By ckellermusic

 |  Version: Apple iTunes 12.2

Pros

Music organization. Only way (thanks Apple) to load music on my $50 iPod Shuffle.

Cons

Runs like it's built for Windows 95. Automatically sets itself to open on startup with every update. Updates come about once a week. It only updates after a restart. PC restart can take up to 10 minutes. And then you have to go in MSCONFIG to turn iTunes back off. Every, single, time.

Summary

Apple obviously wants you to buy Apple everything. It puts me in awe to see so many falling for it. iTunes works just fine on Apple products, surprise surprise. How this isn't illegal, I have no idea.

"i hate itunes 12"

May 22, 2015

 |  Version: Apple iTunes 12.1.2

Pros

downloading podcasts okay but still less function than v.11

Cons

Useless for my needs w/o the sidebar. I've used iTunes for years for music, podcasts and videos. With the clunky new interface in v.12 I am forced to take 12 steps to switch from one to the other. I am currently looking for an alternative. Sigh.

Summary

I've gone back to using v.11 and will use it until it no longer functions, I find an alternative to iTunes or Apple give me back the sidebar or sidebar like function.

"Sorry, New Version ITunes 12 is terrible."

January 31, 2015  |  By zzzzk

 |  Version: Apple iTunes 12.0.1.26

Pros

A little bit pretty.

Cons

Apple is supposed to be known for ease of use. VERY difficult to navigate, find things, not easy playlists, panel gone, can't see old podcasts easily, can't search radio by key words, then they try to "fix" it by including directions after the install? Please redo the interface.

Summary

Please completely redo the interface.

"iTunes Music an Excellent"

December 26, 2014  |  By 4SaleUSA_iTunes

 |  Version: Apple iTunes 12.0.1.26

Pros

The new iTunes 12 display is rectangle-shaped, so at least it still suits on display OK.

Cons

iTunes 12 is so bad that even the faithful the apple company customers who buy every new item will start to query Apple's route. The greatest issue is the elimination of sidebar. The sidebar included a record of every classification in your collection, every playlist, and every system. Well it's gone. Now you have to perform between 3 different places, the top middle selection, the top remaining menu, and a 50 percent ass sidebar that reveals up based on which of the of the other two choices you've chosen. The song/movie details display is bad. just written text sailing around. and you can't duplicate insert record art any longer, you have to go through a selection to publish it. You can try also 4SaleUSA.com for getting more apple iTunes.

Summary

Dear Cnet, please create iTunes 11 available for downgrading

"I just want to add music to my devices"

December 12, 2014  |  By fuji.apple.7

 |  Version: Apple iTunes 12.0.1.26

Pros

The darned program can look good I think

Cons

*Too hard and tedious to use
*Steep learning curve for nothing
*iDevices may only be able to connect to one iTunes library
*EVERY other free programs available can perform the same job better than iTunes without the frustration

Summary

I just want to add some music to my iphone 5S, is that too much to ask?

To begin with, your iTunes may or may not sync with your iDevices, depending on your luck. If you are in doubt, go visit Apple's official forums and you will realize how many people cannot sync their iTunes to their iDevices and there's not anything that you can do about it.

If you are able to sync your devices, your nightmare probably starts here. First, many iDevices can only sync with *only one* iTunes library. So if you format your computer, have multiple computers, or took your device to your friend's house, chances are you are very unlikely to be able to receive any music, pictures, or videos from them.

Then there is the thing that backup is almost completed mandatory. If you are in a hurry and just want to grab a few songs before you leave. Sorry, it isn't happening because iTunes must grab all the information from your iDevices before they add anything to it.

If adding musics to your iDevices is difficult enough, there is that ridiculously difficult user unfriendly interface just there to either show off how sophisticated mind the Apple software engineers are, or just to **** you off. I was not able to perform ANYTHING literally without checking for instructions online. I never had this problem before with ALL OTHER free media player programs.

To say the least, if you have iDevices, you don't really have a choice but to let them screw you. If you do not have iDevices, you have absolutely no reasons to obtain this 100mb oversized useless piece of crap unless you are a software masochist.

"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
