Well, at least they have good taste in music. I love Something Corporate.

Are you thinking of Dieter Rams' work for Braun? If so, yeah... you're absolutely right. I like it. Very uncluttered and clean.


Yes, Braun! Thank you. I was trying to find it on Google looking for "Brohnson" lol.

Check out these pictures:





Music.app has the wood on the sides with the light metal in the middle. And when playing the music app also has that little orange needle (on the record player it indicates what station you are tuned to) that tracks your position within the song.

It's just a completely different look. Initially I didn't like it, but I played with it and realized what it was and I really like it now. I agree that it'd be nice to have a list mode for Artist, but I do like it. The old music app (iPod) just looked like iTunes on the computer. Why not change it up a bit?


Are there any other shots of this? I assume turning it sideways has the same effect it has in other Apple apps with lists (full text list down the left)? What's under New and Other? Settings? :confused:

Such much uproar over so little info... so early. I don't get it.


No. In landscape view you get the same view - just wider. The only "list mode" is seen when you touch "Songs". Touching "Songs" gives you an alphabetical list of every song on your device with an "A ... Z" shortcut on the right hand side. Not the most useful view.

Touching "More" lets you select view by audiobooks, composers, or genres. The "New" button in Playlist view lets you create a new playlist (which is pretty dang neat.)

I really like this new look. It's a completely different feel. To me, it looks and feels like a piece of retro stereo equipment. I'm using this on my iPad. The screenshot posted here does not show the "now playing" info in the top-middle of the screen. That's where it shows artist, song name, etc. It also has the shuffle and repeat buttons, and the genius mix button (which seems to not be functional at the moment.)

If you google image search "crosley iphone" there's a company with some stuff out that has the look and feel of the new Music app. Also, what was the name of the electronics company that apple's taken a lot of their design from? This Music app has the feel of that too.

This new interface reminds me of an old Beogram record player. I like the looks, but it seems they have sacrificed function.

I like the additions, but why is it so ... Ugly?

The App now is at least in line with iTunes and iPod in iPhones, but now it's quite distasteful. It goes to say, that maybe iTunes 11 will feature this new look.
