There are a couple of things that annoy me...The tiny capacity bar for IOS devices requires a magnifying glass to read...The old larger one was far more visible...But so far wifi connectivity with both my iphone and ipad is proving 100% reliable. This wasn't the case before.

Overall, it HAD to be an improvement over what we put up with for years though...So far, so good.

It's probably been asked before here but how do I get artwork to display as it did in all previous versions of iTunes on the left of each album?

Thanks

At the top click "Artists". You can resize the iTunes page so the album songs are in one, two, or three columns. You can also choose to put the albums in alphabetical order or chronological order (if you have the years).

Got it, thanks! I knew I had to just be missing something simple.

I've been using iTunes 11 for about 5 days and it's thumbs up. A few observations: some complained that you can't resize the artwork, but you certainly can. There are like 6 sizes. They complain about Coverflow going away, but Album view with big size covers is very similar. For me Coverflow was just a visual. It was impossible to scroll through the albums one by one using a mouse or trackpad. You can list albums chronologically. I prefer that with 15 Beatles albums. They complain that album's songs are in 3 columns but you fix that by resizing the page to be narrower. They complain that bitrate, rating, number times played isn't with the songs, but it is in Songs view. You can put in notes, anything. The complain the iTunes DJ is gone but the same song queing feature is easier to use now. They complain that your newly ripped Movies are in Home Movies, but you can change that easily. As I suspected most of the early complaints were just user error, as is usually the case with new stuff. It's pretty good software, and the Store is way better too. It used to be horrible to find a video of an artist you searched for. Now it's right there. Good job Apple.

Up at the top. Look at the choices: File, etc. Under one of the is View. I don't have it in front of me but it's all up there under one of the tabs. Or use the Help menu.

Yeah, it's under View - View Options in the Artists view, but it's not there under Albums. That's why I ask.

If only there was a way to resize album art in all the sections

I would like to know how to shuffle my playlists and get it to play my higher rated songs more, like iTunes DJ did

I am sure these are user error and I will find these features soon

I am having the same problem. I have removed and reinstalled iTunes, removed iTunes from the firewall, tried numerous things. The only thing that prevents the message from popping up is to disable the firewall completely, which is what I did since it's a desktop and is behind my Airport Extreme.

Song previews finally continue to play when you change pages in the iTunes store.

Is anyone able to sort podcasts on remote shared iTunes library by date added or date modifies? I cant seem to get the small triangle to show . Not sure if this was possible in earlier versions, although it seems like a obvious feature!



edit (1 min later): Success! With the view options ( + j) you get it.

I only really use iTunes to add music to my iPod and browse the iTunes Store. I'm sure I'll have a few frustrating moments the next time I sync my iPod but I'll figure out the changes.

What bothers me is how an app's product page in the iTunes Store now matches the design of the App Store on my iPod - separating the screenshots/description, reviews, and related apps into separate tabs. This design works well on a small screen but my laptop screen is significantly bigger than 4 inches and Apple wastes that space advantage by requiring me to scroll and click more than previously to get the same information. How is this user-friendly?

Podcast streaming is broken. Can't fast forward when I begin playing a podcast that hasn't been downloaded previously.

All in all I'm liking the new iTunes, sure at first there were annoyances (such as search full library which gave ever ending beachballs) but the only two issues I now face are genius giving the 4002 error code (i think) where it won't update and the biggie, movie metadata is completely random, I can search for an artist/director and it may or may not show up, even though the file when expanded has the name there, I've updated my metadata, updated spotlight but to no avail, any ideas??

Why can't I open more than one window at once? This boosts my time for editing my library or matching reimported CDs to existing lists. Looks very Windoze to me.

Why is editing ID3 tags such a hassle now compared to iTunes 10? Seems very Windoze to me.

Why is there no more preference for gap-less playback?

Why can't I get rid of the existance of iTunes Match all together? They won't let me use it because I have more than 25k songs, but I can't get it out of my sight.

Why is snap-back gone and replaced with a complicated system? All I want is to go back to the song I'm listening to after browsing, not click, scroll through a list, then hope it brings me back to the song not a picture of the album and a useless list with no information.

Why do buttons keep getting smaller and more crammed together as screen resolutions expand?

Some things are good with this update, but most suck. Apple is no longer catering to the power user or the audiophile. I'm very nervous to see what they have in store for Logic.

I think think people who saw Coverflow as pointless are confusing navigation with display.

Sure, as a form of navigation, Coverplay was hopeless, but that wasn't how most of us used it. Stick a playlist on, select Coverflow and full-screen and you had an absolutely gorgeous visual experience to accompany the music.

For me, that's why the jury's still out on iTunes 11. Overall, it's a much slicker UI, but I still miss Coverflow and may yet downgrade for that reason.

Won't miss Cover Flow

While I appreciated how nice "Cover Flow" looked, I never found it useful. With large libraries (I have over 12,000 songs), it often took too long to update album cover artwork. So, unless you were willing to wait, all you saw while "flipping through the albums" was the generic gray album cover. In addition (and this is still a problem), if you didn't have your library set up perfectly, you were often shown the same album art several times in a row.

Yes, the programming to do that was awesome and it produced a great visual effect, but it won't be missed.

Eh? I have 15,558 songs and I've never had to wait for album art to be displayed. Admittedly I have a fairly high-spec machine, but that was also true of the C2D one before it.

3 Finger Swipe missing?

I just installed iTunes 11 on my Macbook Pro and while in the Apple Store browsing movies, etc., when I use the 3 finger swipe to go back 1 page, nothing happens so I now have to click on the back button on the upper left of the window. Anyone else experiencing this?
