I really can't stand the iTunes interface these days. So many sub-menus and sub-sub-navigation tools. They've added so much crap onto here! E.g. the distinction between "My Music" and "Playlists" makes no sense. Even when you're on "Playlists" (which at least looks kinda like the simpler iTunes of old) there are THREE different navigation tools on the top bar - switching between music, movies etc; my music, playlists, for you, radio...; and sorting items like artists/songs etc. Not clear which of these menu choices put you in different sections of the app. On top of that you have a weird THREE column view.

Gah, Steve would never allow this kind of UI crap.

Full ack. iTunes used to be so Finder-like, even Spotlight’s instant and powerful search originated there (it’s mostly gone now and replaced with a more static search). In the playlists sidebar they force this separation between ‘local’ playlists and pre-made Apple Music playlists upon you, the latter which you cannot put into folders, rename or sort manually. I now have a really long list of Apple Music playlists that completely crowds out my own playlists, which are put at the bottom.

What an absolute mess this is. Was super-excited about the possibility of this update fixing all the album artwork mess (and same for the iOS update)...but no....

Will not stay subscribed after the trial period is over.

I don't understand why they simply cannot allow me to add Apple Music "rented" music to my library (more important on the phone mind you) and be done with it. Why does it have to scour my music and change the artwork?! AAAARGGGHHH!!!!!

I posted this in another thread by mistake but I hope iOS 9 brings some huge changes for the Music app because since the last update at the end of June it has been one huge cluster $*&^!!!! I’ve lost songs, other songs have doubled, the album cover artwork is completely messed up with wrong covers for different albums!


iTunes and Music app are starting to look as “good” as Samsung’s Kies!


Get it right Apple! You canned the dude that messed up the Maps a few yrs ago – what gives with the crap with the Music…?!


I went through and renamed and juggled a lot of tracks, and all that work appears to have been tossed in that last update.

Part of it is my bitch with the CDDB content. I mean, do people really need to have [LIVE] stuck at the end of EVERY TRACK on a 'Live album'? Oh, and the name of all the contributors attached to every song on an album? And [DISC 1], [DISC2], etc? WTF!?!?

Oh, and hiding the 'Shuffle' button? I don't think I should have to work that hard to get random music to play on a player that made me a slave to the 'Shuffle' function...

COME ON APPLE! Ask your users how bad you are abusing them...

The good: I'm going to devote an iPod touch to Apple Music, and one iTunes library on a spare laptop.

This is exactly why I am sticking with Spotify. The one selling point of Apple Music for me would be flawless integration. Without changing metadata, deleting songs, changing artwork. But it doesn't do that. For me personally it's much easier to have Spotify and iTunes separately than have two iTunes libraries.

That crap started under Steve.

Of all the things Ive's team is cleaning up, you'd think iTunes would be high on the list.


Ive can't even get Apple app icons consistent, what makes you think he's bothering with iTunes?
