    as the title says: Do you like the new Music app interface?

    To me, the old interface and color scheme felt much much better. The new one feels cheapo. Wonder why did Apple decided to it when no one was asking for it.

    I hate it.

    Seems like an android feel to it, unrefined.

    I'm fine with the interface.... But how do you change the color scheme? Why would they have black for iTunes and grey for another app? Wtf

    It kind of bugs me that the scrub bar is always there now. It makes the screen seem a little cluttered. Although it is useful to always have it showing. I just need to get used to it.

    It's alright. I liked having the cover art in the middle and not having to see the shuffle / loop controls.

    I'm not a fan of it. The white looks to plain. I hate the phone app too it reminds me of the google voice app

    Hate it. The older version was better. Easier on the eyes.

    That's just on the iP5, to take advantage of the larger screen rather than letter boxing the album art. The 4S and previous still tap to show it.

    I actually enjoy it. Feels sleeker, less tacky without the colors. And I find the new icon that shows up when there's no album art available looks much better than the old one.

    Personally, I liked the interface on my 4S..

    The minute I saw it on my 5, I was bummed. I don't like looking at the controls when I don't need them. I can see how it's beneficial for some, though.

    It seems like a regression. If I showed someone unfamiliar with iOS a screenshot of the iOS 6's music app, then the iOS 5's, I bet they would think iOS 6's was the "old version".

    I was shocked when I opened the music app for the first time... AND the keypad in the phone app looks horrible. I also thought they looked Android-like.

    i wouldnt mind it if there was any sense of consistency in the whole OS, the UI is all over the place!

    dial pad, app store, music etc look like android 2.4

    either change everything at once or nothing at all, the worst is the dated "slide to unlock" which looks out of place next to the new music control on the lockscreen

    I love it! I was sick of the old interface, I generally prefer the new one a lot better. :)

    I like it much better than the old one. I'm glad to see the gloss go and be replaced with matte finishes, it's much more current.

    the old school greyed arrow part needs to be replaced by a polished glossy sliver lined thinner arrow imo
