AirPlay icon

It seems that the AirPlay icon and controls are only available in the mini player view.

Has anybody found a way to access AirPlay controls in the main view?

Album art in sidebar

I liked having the album art of the current song in the sidebar. It doesn't appear there is a way to show it. I know the art displays in the title/control window and in the MiniPlayer, but I liked the art in the sidebar.

Trying to add a video to my Home Movies section, its just a .mpg, iTunes freezes up and then the add fails. Very weird.

Anyone else having issues adding files to their library?

Yes, it'll be called 10.9.

I feel sorry for Apple having to create a Windows version. They must loathe that. The Mac version is wicked fast and feels native, not like web browser that I was half-expecting.

Looks like a hybrid of the old iTunes with Zune. Not a great mix, but I'll get used to it.

Is there finally dynamic updating of the music library, i.e. if there is new music in the folder?

My opinion this is a lousy update. You still can't do multiple genres or artists. Movies and Tv shows still have piss poor metadata options

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.

No Facebook integration?

I'm loving it, but I'm surprised there's no Facebook integration given Mountain Lion's new found Facebook support. Would be nice to see what your other friends are listening to on iTunes (similar to how Spotify works).

I LOVE it! It is WAY better. As for cover flow... good riddance, I think Jony Ive got rid of it.

I bet we still can't sort our apps by the Apple ID used to purchase them.

It's next to the volume control.

Somebody may have beat me to it, but go to VIEW>View Options and there is a slider for album size.

Indeed. I need to spend more time with this but I'm not sure if they can really change things much more than this without completely changing how people use iTunes.

One place Apple could learn something from is Microsoft's Zune software on Windows. It serves largely the same purpose as iTunes but it's actually surprisingly fast and relatively easy to use in a very clean UI (a bit too simplistic for my taste as with all other Metro-theme apps tend to be) However with 11 I think Apple made a pretty good progress without alienating too much of the existing user base.

I am always amazed that people say that iTunes is great on Macs and terrible on PCs. I use both platforms, and since about 6 years there is no noticeable difference. I think it is a rather poor program on either platform, but then again I did not like it even back when it was called SoundJam.

Good catch. Hadn't noticed it was gone in the main view, but I definitely can't find it. It's in the mini player view, though.

You can't. You'll be greeted with this (which I honestly can't believe is coming from Apple!):

Also, Airplay is in the main view, next to the volume slider.

iTunes 11 now has a porn filter. You need to let iCloud enjoy the video first, hence the freeze. Normal programming will resume shortly.
