    Is that a question or a statement?

    Looks like a question to me, with the question mark and all.

    If I had iOS 5 on my iPad I'd tell you.

    Yes I saw the question mark but reading it didn't sound like a question.

    To The OP I have not seen Cover-flow on the iPad 1 with iOS 5.

    To tell you the truth the music app seems very unpolished and simple at the moment.
    I'm not a big fan of it.

    As "Cover Flow" was quite an amazing thing on the iPhone and Touch, also iTunes, and was one of the show off fancy features so you could zoom through your album artwork in an almost 3D way.

    It's strange how they have stripped all this nice eye candy effect away from the iPad version, if only as an option.

    It may be a bit gimmicky, but it does look nice and a good way to just browse for something.

    There's no coverflow; I've just checked. But, I think they need some sort of cool way to browse your music - like Honeycomb, which has a lot of eye candy in its music app - which I like.

    I agree, whilst "eye candy" is not needed, esp when you know exactly what you are looking for. when you are just browsing, it's nice to have something visually appealing/impressive to look at.

    Like the YouTube curved wall in Honeycomb also.
    It's just nice to think, ohh, that looks nice, even if it's not really necessary.

    I never used coverflow. Was always a ballache actually getting the music you wanted.

    Yes, but I don't think that's what it's for.

    It's like in a shop, if you know exactly what you want you ask, or you just look it up on the list and pick it.

    If you don't really know, but just fancy scanning the range and seeing if anything pops out at you, then you may just randomly browse and see if anything takes your fancy.

    This is what coverflow is about.
    You may just have a browse through the album sleeves and go, OMG, I forgot all about this one, and play it.
    Just a relaxing was to browse your collection.

    Nothing's wrong with the direct list approach, but it's nice to have a more relaxed view also.

    May very well be implemented later but just now artwork is well dodgy in the beta as always. wait for a later release to see.

    Not so strange if you follow the torturous happenings in the US legal system:

    I'm pretty sure Apple doesn't believe it violated anyone's patents. But by removing that sort of functionality (which doesn't actually do much of anything) - they at least reduce the amount they would have to pay should the case ultimately be decided against them.

    I cant stand the Music App either....

    I want to be able to click the iPod icon, push play, listen and rate a song from there....not have to double click the album art every time. Then over and over every time I close and open the iPod.

    Sometimes, i don't understand Apple's decision.

    I know that coverflow can be see like a "gadget", but when we plug our iPad on TV in a party for example, cover flow is so cool for everyone.


    Sorry for my bad english, i'm french

    The Music app is a giant improvement over the iPod app, imo.

    What's weird is that Apple bought the Mac app Coverflow and added that to iTunes. I bet they figured they were free from patent infringement.

    I'd rather have some simple visualisations, than coverflow, to be honest.
