thoughts on the new version of itunes. [Feb. 21st, 2013|11:57 pm]
The new interface is very counter-intuitive.

Having to click in the upper right corner for the mini-player instead of the top left (like every other program in OS X) boggles the mind. We're suddenly trying to emulate a windows environment?

In the main music library.. the column browser. . . Well.. it's not really columns anymore. It's now a row of columns which are very wide and not aesthetically pleasing, clunky to use as well.

I haven't been able to get past the interface problems to even delve into trying out any new features that may have been introduced so I can't comment on them.

To sum up. New version is clunky, ugly, awkward and not user-friendly at all.

copied and pasted from what i submitted on their feedback site. it actually was detracting from me enjoying some podcasts earlier today. was too frustrated looking for controls in the mini-player/etc. that i just gave up.
