This new version disables the ability to drag and drop images into the cover art section when editing multiple song info. So iTunes is getting worse and worse in terms of its UI for anyone beyond novice level. It is a shame Apple continues to neuter its products.

Cannot confirm this. Drag and drop for images for multiple songs works as always here. So must be something on your machine.

Still doesn't support local syncing with your iPhone.

So your only option is to pay for Apple's iCloud to inevitably loose your private data to the general public one day. This will include your boss, identity thieves, enemies and other people who you would rather not have access to your contacts, calendar, movement history, password database, to do list, browsing history, bookmarks, notes, etc.

You can also sync with a local ical free server running on your machine. Someone only needs to package this into an app to easily set up the service and this sync problem would be solved.

I really think Apple should bring back local sync. How can I sync via the iCloud servers if I'm out traveling without internet connection? Extremely stupid and not Appleworthy behavior.

Come on Apple, it's time for a revamp of this once great application and make it user-friendly for new features.

• Allow connections to more than one AppleID at a time, if you can't find a way to merge them.

• There should be one App store that functions in any country, not separate ones. Amazon and others can do it, but Apple can't?

• Searching for something while in the app store or music store should return results of that category, not all. If you want to search for apps, returning music or vice versa is just plain lame.

• Add a way to burn playlists to a USB thumb drive. We don't all need CDs anymore and many (most) new cars have USB ports, not just CD drives.

• Bring back a way to sync contacts and calendars locally. iCloud is fine, but some of us don't like having our data in your cloud in the age of mega snooping, security breaches and no privacy.

• And please, don't use the same programmers who did iWork 13. They'll just strip everything bare to add features back at a trickle.

Can't add songs. Can't download more than 1 iTunes U. Podcasts have been more difficult to subscribe and movie folder is hard to manage and all the covers apply to movies without cover. Why they have to screw things that didn't need to be touch and not working in the things needed to be added or improved? I really want to look at itunes programmers in the face... Oh yeah, restyling icons is their number one priority. Apple let me down since 2007, since they claim "Something great is coming" and then what. I don't need an iphone to play games or consume virtual things that don't exist, or biatchchatting.

It sounds like you are having a permissions problem on your Mac. I don't have any of those issues. Check the permissions on your iTunes media folder using Get Info and set it to read/write and apply to contents.

Podcasts work as they always did, unless you are manually subscribing to a Podcast that requires a user name and password, which you have to include it in the URL.

Otherwise I'm not sure why you are having problems. I subscribe to about 50 Podcasts, and have 26,576 songs, and 121 movies in iTunes. I had no problems with any of those.

You can't use iCloud to synch calendars and contacts? That works great, and it's seamless and instantaneous.

I never plug my phone in unless I'm doing a backup to my Mac (besides the wireless iCloud backup).

Syncing of calendars and contacts is not possible anymore with older iphones that can't talk to iCloud. That is not a sweeing "older iPhones". The minimum is IOS 5.

You can see the IOS compatibility feature by feature here:
http://support.apple.com/kb/ht4759#features

I do think it was very idiotic by Apple to remove local contacts and calendars sync. There are no valid reasons doing that. Drop active support, but removing a central working feature?

That said, iTunes 11 is pretty good. At least once I learnt to turn on the look I want and route around the inconsistencies of the interface.

@Mikael B, thanks for the clarification. I have an iPhone 5 and haven't had anything older.

I agree it was dumb to remove local sync. I can't imagine what they were thinking of.

One REALLY annoying thing they changed in the last iTunes update is the Podcast list is no longer in alphabetical order. When you have 50 Podcasts in your list, that makes it hard to find them. Now the stupid part is you would think they are in order of last updated, but they aren't. I can't tell what the heck is going on.

I reported that as a bug, but I have a feeling it's a "feature."

@Mikael B, that doesn't work when you are in the "My Podcast" view, which is the one I use, and that doesn't have any view options. It has a side bar wight he list of Podcasts, and they are now out of order.

If I use List view with artwork it's almost as usable.

Mikael B replied on 24 Jan 2014
That's true. My suggestion only applies to "unplayed" and "list". You can drag and drop the podcasts in "my podcasts" to any order you want. Even so, a little sorting help would be welcome.

I think we'll have to use different views for different tasks. Using Tunes really should be no-brainer. It beats me why it isn't.

And bug still not fixed: Go to album view, select an album (to view tracks). Go to playlist view and back to album view. Focus lost, album view gone. Why? Why Apple? This is ridiculous.

But hey, 11.1.4 offers more ways to spend more money so from a stockholder point of view I guess this is a great update. :S

With each new iteration it gets slower and more sluggish. I've lost count of the number of times it fails to synch over WiFi, fails to mount devices over WiFi, fails to update apps or does something else annoying. Nowadays I really have to do a cost-benefit analysis before I think about booting it ... put simply, will it be worth the inevitable aggravation?
Apple really needs to totally rewrite this puppy, optimise the code and render it useable again. More and more nowadays I find myself seeking out non-apple alternatives for their freebie applications (iTunes, iBooks etc) on all Apple platforms ... because they are truly showing their age and lack of scalability.

On my extremely old Macbook Pro from 2007 iTunes 11.1.3 uses about 4-10% CPU (2.2ghz Core2Duo) playing back with the equalizer on. I remember older iTunes using 10-20%.

Moving between lists takes an instant, scrolling is instant. Sluggish? I think not.
All this on Mavericks 10.9.1 and a 64bit processor (though old). 4.500 tracks using 76gb.


Are you using a 32bit version of iTunes? 64bit is actually faster these days. It's NOT just about the total amount of memory. Go 64bit if you have that type of processor.

Frank-O'Connor replied on 24 Jan 2014
Well, my mileage definitely varies ....

I'm using iTunes 64 bit on a late 2012 iMac, with the quick CPU and higher end graphics card, 16 GB of RAM, and about 10 terabytes of disk space. I also have a internal drive (3Tb conventional disk, 128 GB SSD) that boots wicked quick, and every other program boots quickly, performs to spec and is a nippy performer.

I've had the latest version of MacOS installed updated and installed from the day I got rhe puppy. Currently on 10.9.1.

iTunes performs like a spavined camel, is uniformly annoying when booted, takes an age to establish WiFi and other connections between devices, and is better treated as a standalone program than as the content management system it is supposed to be nowadays. As a content management system it screams to a halt about 8 times out of 10, and fails to update books, apps, music and other content because of this.

Perhaps I should invest in a 2007 macBook Pro to get acceptable performance from it.

Mikael B replied on 25 Jan 2014
That's odd performance to say the least, considering you have 4 cores. Is this performance issue in iTunes only for you? I wonder why such different experiences can be, if everything else is being equal..

I see that there are many other reports of slow iMacs. I've refrained from getting one because of a feeling I wouldn't like it. That said a friend of mine has one and it's great. I'm looking at the Mac Pro now for myself.

Earlier I used to update the artwork by selecting the songs of an album together, and on the bottom left, I just used to drag and drop the artwork!

That option seems to have gone now, and now I have to select the songs, Get Info, and then drag the artwork there!

Is there another way to do it? I enjoyed being able to see the artwork over there, and it was much more convenient!
