ITunes 11 (It Stinks!)

Just "Upgraded" to iTunes 11, one big strep backwards (in my opinion); search for music by artist, go to the albums page, I get about a dozen relevant albums with the rest of the page (hundreds of albums) filled with irrelevant Cr@p (self hypnoses for ESP, self hypnoses for sex addiction, self hypnoses for astral travel ... :o ); if this is the direction iTunes is going they can stick it!

  1. Some parts are okay and the rest I agree with you. You cannot download the trailers any longer in the i tunes movie section.Not good at all and the podcasts are no longer available either to download.
  2. Been trying to use it, but the more I try the more I hate it, there is so much that has has stopped working!

    Had a look through the iTunes support thread on Apples Forum, several pages of threads complaining about features that no longer work; Apple really seem to have dropped a(nother) big one.
  3. The last iTunes was OK, but with version 11.0, I bought an album from the Store and two tracks did not download. Went through the online help motions. Got a reply, followed directions, still no joy so gave the feedback. They replied with extra info, tried it all, several times, overnight, following day etc. Still did not work. Gave feedback and no reply at all after a week. Went back to original faulty downloads to report problems, quoting prior history of unresolved problems. Got standard online reply, it will be attended to within 24 hours. That was 4 days ago, and nix, nada, zilch since then. As a simultaneous issue, bought Mountain Lion a few months back. Purchase paid for. Never got the download. Have contacted iTunes online support re this issue about 3 separate times in last two weeks. No reply. Tried ringing Apple Support, queue was hopelessly long, I wonder why? Two weeks have passed, and my original problems remain.

    This is beyond a BIG STINK...I was quite happy with Apple for last 10 years, but this iTunes 11 is hopeless. Plus I have found certain parts of the new version, either don't open properly, or don't work, or boot me out.

    APPLE has blown it badly with this one.

    No apparent way to fix problems, report problems, nor complain properly.

    My next step is to go the local Apple Store and make a real nuisance of myself, and make it loud and clear to other customers to not bother buying any more Apple Products until they get their act together. Come on everybody, hit Apple where it hurts, make them lose sales.

    Enough is enough. The new technology is really giving me the shits. As consumers we don't tolerate buying a new car with such inherent problems, faults and service. Government consumer protection sorts that out, but apparently no deal with Apple Sales and Support?

    What to do?

  5. Did you people ever notice how STABLE iTunes 10 was? It was amazing! It never crashed or froze even once while I used it since 2010.
  6. I'm not upgrading to iTunes 11. Not now, not ever.

    This is Apple iOS 6 maps all over again.

    Don't mess with the product that works fine.

    100% I agree with you.I am sorry I upgraded.
  8. ******* Apple. Some of their products are built well and their OSes can be good once they've worked the bugs out of a particular release, but most of their non-OS software sucks from an IT perspective.
  9. If you're having difficulties completely removing iTunes 11 and reverting back to iTunes 10.7, then check this out...

  10. One word to all...Spotify. After I had multiple problems with iTunes 11.whatever, they can keep it. The sound quality on Spotify is even better. I'm lov'in Spotify even more as I listen to it. Do yourself a favor and uninstall iTunes and Apple completely and check out Spotify. I think you'll be glad you did. There is an alternative.

    It is free after registration and it is quite popular in Sweden. I think it still comes with 20 hours of free music streaming every month with some ads in between.

    If I'm not wrong you can still play mp3 files stored locally on your computer and obviously they have a very large selection of music to choose from.

    I currently have a premium subscription which only costs 10 bucks a month which gives me unlimited streaming and the ability to have offline playlists (Make a playlist and you can still play the entire playlist on your computer or smart phone when there is no internet connection) which I think is pretty sweet compared to buying tracks or albums one by one.
