Apple Releases iTunes 11 with Simplified Player, Redesigned Store, and More




In line with yesterday's report, Apple has just released iTunes 11 to the public. The new software brings a number of enhancements including a redesigned store, simplified player, and new iCloud features.
Quote:
- Completely Redesigned. iTunes makes it more fun to explore and enjoy your music, movies, and TV shows. You'll love the beautiful edge-to-edge design, custom designs for each album, movie, or TV show in your library, and getting personal recommendations any time you click in the Store.

- A New Store. The iTunes Store has been completely redesigned and now features a clean look that makes it simpler than ever to see what's hot and discover new favorites.

- Play purchases from iCloud. Your music, movie, and TV show purchases in iCloud now appear inside your library. Just sign-in with your Apple ID to see them. Double-click to play them directly from iCloud or download a copy you can sync to a device or play while offline.

- Up Next. It's now simple to see which songs are playing next, all from a single place. Just click the Up Next icon in the center display and they'll instantly appear. You can even reorder, add, or skip songs whenever you like.

- New MiniPlayer. You can now do a whole lot more with a lot less space. In addition to showing what's playing, MiniPlayer now includes album art, adds Up Next, and makes it easy to search for something new to play - all from a smaller and more elegant design.

- Improved search. It's never been easier to find what you're looking for in iTunes. Just type in the search field and you'll instantly see results from across your entire library. Select any result and iTunes takes you right to it.

- Playback syncing. iCloud now remembers your place in a movie or TV show for you. Whenever you play the same movie or episode from your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Apple TV, it will continue right where you left off.
The software is currently available through Software Update in the Mac App Store, and Apple should be updating its iTunes pages shortly.

Awww! But Steve LOVED that other icon! [friendly sarcasm]

Oh, I get it. Same but inverted notes color. Matches the Mac App Store icon better!

I am wondering the same thing. Looks like music, movies, and tv shows are but podcasts aren't. Kinda makes the iOS app useless if it doesn't sync with iCloud too.

The guys at Apple need to talk to each other with these apps. It drives me crazy! Even the Apple TV app doesn't show whats on my phone but iPad and iPhone talk to each other. What gives!!!

I think it'd be smart to wait a few days. It was obviously too buggy to release in October, so they said november and waited until the very last possible second (Almost)... That says to me it might not be quite perfect yet?

I like it - has a retro feel look to it. Now if there was a way to make iTunes UI darker...

iTunes used to have other visualizers that were different then the current (and "classic") visualizers that are included now. It was around iTunes 7 or 8 I think. Why did Apple take them away?? I thought they were pretty good.

I've only played around with it for 10 minutes, but I love it so far. I like the new view, and Iove that we can keep the classic sidebar view if we want. The classic sidebar has the colors back again, instead of all grey (maybe os x 10.9 will have the colors back too). I like that we can switch back and forth between views of old and new. It's a little bit faster too. I love having the option to view all my iTunes purchases movies and shows in the view that are in the cloud, and can hide the cloud purchases too. I haven't checked out the iTunes store yet

I have an old school ipod, and 80GB one, the type directly before the classic. Anyway, it seems that contacts and calendars can no longer be synced to this type of iPod. I have the message that no contacts are on my computer and that the ipod doesn't support icloud sync. So it seems icloud is going to become an essential element for apple devices.

Any way to apply color labels?
Thanx

Still waiting for more iCloud

I have 102,000 songs in my library. iTunes in the Cloud still limits you to 25,000. Amazon Cloud Player has a limit of 250,000 songs.

When will iTunes move to 250,000?

It not depends on Apple. It depends on music labels magnaminity. Hope new round of negotiations when their contract is due Apple convinces them to up the number of songs in iTunes in the Cloud to par with competition.
