Is there any way to make iTunes tell me how many songs and apps I have in total anymore? And yeah, everything is so damn big. Looks nice though.

The "Up Next" selection on iTunes 11 is probably the best improvement. About freaking time iTunes got the feature.

The iCloud streaming is great! I'm considering getting iTunes Match now. I hope they bring iCloud streaming to iOS next. So far I like iTunes 11 quite a bit. Good stuff.

If you do want to hide iCloud songs, you can turn them off by going into Preferences -> Store -> Show iTunes in the Cloud Purchases. Turn that off and the iCloud songs won't show up.

sweet. the truth, i always found iTunes to be extremely bloated. It's way too slow on my laptop pc and it shouldn't be - it's not a rendered, complex calculation software. it's just iTunes. I wish Apple would come up with some simpler iTunes, that will focus more on speed and functionality and less on design.

I stopped updating iTunes when Apple stopped updating my iPod the way I see it is it only ever kept getting worse anyway.

I think iTunes is one of the main things that pushed me away from Apple honestly apart from the buggyness of the windows version it's also a total space hog.

I agree, I can't stand iTunes for the most part.

Thanks, I must have missed that while going through the settings.

So is the Windows version any better now? I am running it on a Mac and it works well there, but it always worked pretty well on Macs. It's hard to say yet if it performs better or not. A friend of mine download it for Windows and seems to like it, but I'm not sure if he had any problems with it before or not.

I don't like itunes, and hate syncing to a computer cause I don't own one anymore. They gotta get some icloud solution to backing up our game saves and music in the cloud. More and more people are getting away from computers and going tablets, so something has to be done soon I hope.

Its pretty good actually. The new mini player is by far the best feature. Everything about itunes feels way snappier now. I missed the sidebar at first, but I decided to try using it without the sidebar for a while as I think I will like it better after a while. The only thing that bothers me is the icon sizes for apps, movies, and tv shows. They are huge. I cannot seem to find a slider or setting to adjust this anywhere either. Overall though, a much needed overhaul for itunes.
