Oh man, about ***** time. It amazingly took them over a month and a half to fix this crippling bug somehow introduced in the last point release:

Apple has so perfected design, manufacture, and distribution logistics of gadgets, all while letting its software divisions turn into a total joke. Sure, why get bothered responding to needs of (locked-in) users when there's all those NEW CONSUMERS with their new consumer MONEY wanting to buy gadgets gadgets gadgets?

That's welcome news! I do hope it now shows composers more clearly, because previously, album covers and titles usually showed interpreters only, making it hard to find out who you were listening to. I am glad they implemented something that I provided feedback for, for once!

When iTunes got its most recent UI (and then I tweaked a few options) I started to really like it (again).

My complaint is that iOS sync is quirky and unreliable. But the UI is excellent in my view.

It's an app that does a lot, and for many people I know that's a bad thing. But I use SO much of what it does, that I can't see myself hoping for a fresh start a la Photo.
