  • iTunes 11 Finally Available for Download


    After a month of being delayed due to the hopes of making the release as bug-free and great as possible, and acting in agreement with yesterday’s rumor of an iTunes 11 release today, iTunes 11 is now finally available for the public to download and enjoy for both Windows and Mac OS X.

    iTunes 11 gets a new application icon with the same color scheme as the Mac App Store icon. The whole application receives a facelift, as well, making the whole iTunes store look much cleaner. iTunes 11 now also allows you to play your music, movies, and other purchases from iCloud without the need to have it downloaded to your iTunes library, however you can still download the files to your computer to play while offline.

    More interesting features include an “Up Next” feature, which gives you the ability to see what is going to be playing next by clicking on a new button. There is also a redesigned mini player for listening to music, a new playback syncing feature, and an improved search too. The playback syncing means you can start a movie on one device, and iCloud will remember where you left off so you can continue it on another device.

    The iTunes 11 update requires an Intel Mac running OS X 10.6.8 or later, with at least 400MB of free storage space. You can download the new iTunes 11 from this link, or you can launch Software Update on your Mac from the  menu, or via Apple Software Update on a Windows machine. Download times will vary depending on your Internet performance.

      What's with the new iCloud icon? I was interested and clicked on it and saw a quick download occur. I purchased a song on accident. Are these just recommendations because I have never downloaded these songs before and I am the only one that uses my account.

      TERRIBLE!! Can't stand the new view, wording vs. check box, for installing apps, like the check box much better, easier to see installed at a glance. Also, what the hell were they thinking by removing the file allocation data at the bottom of the screen, pain in the a@@ having to move your cursor over the colored bar to see how much space is left on your device. Needless to say it was uninstalled 3 minutes after the update.

      Can't arrange files alphabetically in the grid view. Can't double-click on the playlist name to open it in a new window. Can't change the size of the art or the color of the grid background. I really need to be able to arrange my files in the grid view. There are settings to do that but they don't arrange the files alphabetically. I'm going to give it a day before I downgrade. I'm not impressed by this version. I read the comments about the speed improvement, but haven't noticed anything one way or the other. Steve is dead. Gen Z has finally taken over. Low standards, Cultural nosedive and all that

      I guess it's OK, but I had my library with the albums on the left and the songs on the right arranged by date added. Now it's impossible. Either just the songs or the albums but cannot arrange them by date added... Crapola!

      I like it! "Up next" is brilliant and the mini player stays above every other program which is perfect for changing tracks without having to go back into iTunes (which is what I had to do before). I have no speed issues despite the fact I only have 4gb of RAM. I am running Windows 8 if that makes a difference though. I'll hold judgement for now until I've tried searching for music properly. So far though first impressions are great 10/10 for me and way better than windows media player. Time to try out the new remote app now and see if anything significant has changed in it...

      You didn't purchase a song, that's a song that's in the cloud and when you clicked it, it downloaded a copy to be able to play it offline, hope this helped
