Apple Releases iTunes 11
Thursday, November 29, 2012
Posted by: Staff

Apple has released iTunes 11 via their Software Update Utility and website for direct download. According to the company, this version of the software includes the following new features and improvements:

- Completely Redesigned. iTunes makes it more fun to explore and enjoy your music, movies, and TV shows. You'll love the beautiful edge-to-edge design, custom designs for each album, movie, or TV show in your library, and getting personal recommendations any time you click In the Store.

- A New Store. The iTunes Store has been completely redesigned and now features a clean look that makes it simpler than ever to see what's hot and discover new favorites.

- Play purchases from iCloud. Your music, movie, and TV show purchases in iCloud now appear inside your library. Just sign-in with your Apple ID to see them. Double-click to play them directly from iCloud or download a copy you can sync to a device or play while offline.

- Up Next. It's now simple to see which songs are playing next, all from a single place. Just click the Up Next icon in the center display and they'll instantly appear. You can even reorder, add, or skip songs whenever you like.

- New MiniPlayer. You can now do a whole lot more with a lot less space. In addition to showing what's playing, MiniPlayer now includes album art, adds Up Next, and makes it easy to search for something new to play—all from a smaller and more elegant design.

- Improved search. It's never been easier to find what you're looking for in iTunes. Just type in the search field and you'll instantly see results from across your entire library. Select any result and iTunes takes you right to it.

- Playback syncing. iCloud now remembers your place in a movie or TV show for you. Whenever you play the same movie or episode from your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Apple TV, it will continue right where you left off.

iTunes 11 weighs in at 191.08 MB and requires Mac OS X 10.6.8 or later.

Is there a list view without any photos? I think I may hold out awhile on this one.

Yes. Under "songs" you can order the list by song, name, album genre...

A big improvement over the last version. Even though some of the text is really small.

Sticking with 10. 11 looks gaudy. Some of the features look great though just not for me.

I like the new album and artist views. Especially the drop down menu in albums with the album art and matching colors. That's pretty slick. I also like the new iTMS. I don't shop there much anymore, but it's much cleaner looking. I also think the overall performance is much better.

It's definitely faster, cleaner and leaner. Too bad they don't have a subscription service though. So I guess it's back to Spotify for now.

I haven't looked around at everything, but I'm hoping there's a way to hide your iCloud music. I don't necessarily want all of my previous purchases in my library anymore. The rest look cool so far.

The extended view mode for albums is awesome. I would rather have it than Cover Flow any old day.

I kinda miss the old list view, but the album view is much improved to the point where I'll actually use it.

SWEET. Razz

If you mean the library list you can re-enable it via the View Menu item, select Show sidebar Smile

I'm glad they kept the old sidebar around. I kinda felt naked without it.
