coverflow works wonders in Finder. I have a folder full of icons that I want to select from and coverflow is the best way to find what I want.

but yeah in iTunes, it's not that great.

I had a custom icon (a Led Zeppelin vinyl version of the old blue CD iTunes logo), and it stayed. That's convenient.

I like that feature. I just think Apple needs something in there to prevent colors from clashing like that. Black with a White shadow on Neon Green is painful to look at.

Some of the albums look pretty cool with the color choices chosen. It reminds me of what ebay does on the iPad app where it pixelates the page and uses it as the background so every page never looks the same.

So in these days when no one buys CDs any more, they introduce an interface that mimcs CDs??

And where are my playlists? I'm supposed to treat 35K songs like one big library?

It's hard for me to believe that people actually miss cover flow. Cover flow was a terrible interface for browsing through music.

Don't worry. Even though I have V.G. Varun music, I never listen to it.
I agree. The ones that take advantage of all of the colors of the album properly look great.


I can see a thread posted to see what albums look the best.

When you don't know what you want to listen to, you can flip through it. The album artwork is nice, in general. And it will prompt you with some stuff you might not have thought of.

It seemed like a nice enough thing to use for browsing your collection.

It was great for showcasing album art on a tv connected to a Stereo .

Great for parties

If that's what you want, why not browse in Artist mode?

Generally I like it but miss some of the old features. Searching seems to suck a bit now and I miss being able to have a list view and view my album artwork.

I agree, and now when you shuffle music, it doesn't go to the song location. The menu just sits there like a dummy

It's no great mystery unless I'm misunderstanding your situation.
Explain to me how you right click on the phone. Read more carefully.

The fact that cover flow is no longer in 11 is no big deal to me. I'm enjoying the fact that 11 is fluid and doesn't hang anymore

WIfI Syncing!

I don't believe this was possible before but without having your iPhone plugging into a wall outlet, iTunes 11 now allows you to sync over wifi. Finally no cables required!

No NFC, im not updating

If there is no NFC, larger screen or user replaceable battery included in this update, I'm not updating. Seriously apple, Samsung have these things, Steve Jobs would have never allowed Samsung to get so far ahead.

How much RAM does iTunes use for everyone? Mine hangs around 1GB.

Well it's a pretty cool find lol. Interesting to see if anything actually useful comes from retina UI design like that . Nice attention to detail design anyway ... like the old days.

I have mixed feelings. Overall I like the snappiness, and it just looks cleaner and nicer. On the other hand, it seems pretty buggy, and iTunes Store searching is severely compromised for me - no sorting of any kind. I hope 11.1 will bring some serious updates...

Color Sidebar Icons! Does this mean...

Does this mean than the style-over-functionists have been, oh-so-rightly, run out of Apple!

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!
