Very fast. Very sleek. Very intuitive and well thought out. Love it!

Had a few bugs (for example, store content showed all messed up after search) but I'm sure all this will be ironed out soon. All in all absolutely satisfied and thrilled about this big update!

I read all of the posts here...PEOPLE!!!!!!

95% of the problems you are having is because you don't know how to work iTunes 11 yet. Most of the thing you say are missing and/or screwed up, are just hidden and still there or have a different way of doing the same thing. Don't give up so easy. Google your problems and find fixes

The other 5% is coverflow is missing. But as someone pointed out, Microsoft uses something that looks like coverflow now, and so does the Kindle fire, so it is kind of played out.

One MAJOR warning: Apple has completely changed the way you do media file management in iTunes 11.0 on your iPod. Good thing I have an old iPod nano (3G 8 GB) to "practice" on learning how to use it.

One thing I have picked up on in regards to search is to hit enter after you enter your search terms.

So we still have to watch movies in 4:3 aspect ratio? Is there a way to fix that without recoding?

I can now glance at the sidebar, not examine, and find what I'm looking for, not just from the item's position (or a uselessly, small gray icon), but from its color.

I am cautiously hopeful that Finder's interface will see such a return to sanity... and good interface design practices.

Paint me happy!
Am I missing something? There is a sidebar in iTunes 11 that works just like the one in iTunes 10.7 but with some additional features.

I'm having an small issue with the mini player. I thought that it was supposed to have the information displayed and when you hovered over it with mouse the controls would appear. Mine at the moment only ever has the controls, with the 'backtrack' highlighted in blue.

I do have a small pic to the left, but when the cursor is removed from the player it doesn't change. Bug? or me being dim?

EDIT: Yes I was dim. Press TAB and it cycles through to the search icon. Wait a second and info comes up.

Better read the license agreement guys...

"By clicking agree, you also acknowledge that Apple may sew your mouth to the butt-hole of another iTunes user. Apple and it's subsidiaries may also, if necessary, sew another persons mouth onto your butt-hole, making you a being that shares one gastral tract." - Wouldn't wan't another Kyle incident now would we?

It's amazing how they made the UI so much simpler while retaining most of the features. There's a lot of brilliant little UI touches, like how when I start dragging a song, my playlist slides into view. I also find it much more conducive to building a real time playlist than djay, which I seldom used. The more I use it, the more impressed I am by what Apple's accomplished with this upgrade. Kudos to the iTunes team.

Count me among those who misses Cover Flow. I mostly use iTunes for movies and TV shows, and whenever I was at a loss for what to watch, I would just scan through Cover Flow and see what caught my eye. I kept praying Apple would bring the feature to the Apple TV.

where is the podcast icloud subscription sync?

so let me get this straight it works iOS to iOS... but not from iOS to iTunes 11?

Huh?

WHY does Apple keep doing this stuff? So irresponsible to not do the simplest things on all devices... they so miss the entire point sometimes.. mind boggling.

There might be a theme for download that does this anyway. I don't know if ThemePark still works, but there are probably other theme programs for Mtn Lion if it doesn't.

I don't know about that. A theoretical Big Time Rush fan who uses Windows Vista, prefers a 90s Toyota Corolla over a new Mercedes E class, automatically hates anything made in the year 2004 for no reason, is terribly afraid of dogs, loves the Will.i.am iPhone accessory, supports Affirmative Action, and whose favorite show is something stupid like Jersey Shore would lose considerable respect from me.

Just downloaded the new Apple Remote on my Ipad. Plus updated my Apple TV.

The Apple TV update was way fast.

It's working perfect. The App, Remote - is really a BIG change. The music aspect ROCKS. My whole library is there, and the interface is like the new iTunes. The UP NEXT feature is perfect. Adds the album or the songs and the artwork is just like iTunes, colors etc.

I'm floored, so far the music side of remote is awesome. The icon is all new. Looks like Apple or Cue is sharpening the icons - real crisp.

You can click on the album artwork on the song playing up top and it will pop out full size, you can even resize it. It may not be as good for that reason as cover flow still because it does cover up the UI instead of being a part of it.

Click "view" "options" and you get a slider, although it may not make it as large as you might want...

Overall, I like the new design. Coverflow was pretty, but worked better on an iDevice. I much prefer the new arrangement for the Mac. And the iDevice interface is cleaner and faster.

I too couldn't see the Airplay button -- until my AppleTV was turned on. Then it automatically appeared. If the only Airplay option is your computer, it doesn't show (which makes sense).

One odd glitch: if I accidentally hit the X on the mini-player, iTunes remains open but with nothing there. The window will restore by clicking the iTunes icon in the dock. But why even have an X on the mini-player? It should simply be a restore button.

Missing Volume Control?

The only thing I miss so far is the volume control in the mini iTunes display as an upfront feature. Having to use the pull-down is an extra step for something that I think is one of the most common controls along with start/stop/pause.
