    Hey guys, just wondering what your perspective is on this:
    http://simplestation.com/locomotion/itunes-9-0-and-a-lack-of-polish/

    The more I look at iTunes 9 the more I see it really is a lot less polished than iTunes 8. What is Apple doing? It's definitely faster I can appreciate that, but the icon work, buttons, and style in general is definitely seriously lacking polish.

    Thoughts?

    I've never been too picky on the design until now. Now they're screwing with my navigation and that's ********.

    I actually really like iTunes 9's new design myself.

    I'm with you. I like iTunes 9. This clown that wrote that article seriously needs to get a life. He is freaking out because of something like drop shadows ? :eek:

    It may look less polished now, but I'm sure it'll get better. And who knows, this may be a peek at the Marble interface we've been hearing about, iTunes seems to be Apple's favorite place to try out UI changes.

    He mentions that the ability to change the size of the icons is gone. It's still there. Over all, I don't mind the changes, there are some bugs that need fixing but some of the new features (Home Sharing) are very welcome.

    As they say, you can't please everybody.


    It's alright, it takes time to get use to the changes.
