Finally, iTunes 11

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.

Currently Playing: Pocket RPG, Tentacle Wars, Oh My Heroes, Minigore 2, Mini Motor Racing, Eufloria, Swordigo

Bigger piece 'o crap than the last one, so far. Or make that DTHMXSoftwarePage.WhatIsNew and SFReleaseDate.postedDate pieces of crap. The Windows version, at least, has raw code bits peeking out everywhere and really lousy formatting, with menus overwriting other menus and stuff like that.

Is there any way to prevent the iCloud music files from appearing?

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.

Noise brings so many things, make my tingling skin freeze.

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 don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out

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

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