I used to get excited about iTunes updates. Now it's just, what the hell it can't get any worse...

Is this the best we can do? I mean it is dysfunctional. In the store, I search for a song and it tries to sell me an app.

If I search my library, it is so keen to show me options, that it likes, I can't get to what I like. It is the biggest obstacle to my enjoyment of music, and I dread to open it.

Simplicity means turning off all the new gimmicks until you have a device that will work for you.

It is getting to the point where I dare not upgrade any Apple products for the fear that it will destroy my workflow. It never used to be like this. Apple was always making things better. Now they are dragging everything down to the IOS consumer level ballpark. If we want to do some iWork seriously, I guess we will have to use Microsoft Word.

I really never thought I would hear myself suggesting that, but this "upgrade" has destroyed my faith in Apple.

I am sure it is perfect for beginners, but all the work I have done over the years with pages, believing it would surpass Word has been dashed.

It is sad to see this, but a fact. Apple is saying bye bye to serious users and customers. With all that profit, it is embracing the new, more fashionable trend of greed.

If this could do batch normalization I would buy it!

I use this when I have a PDF with very small fonts. Just export it to Word, and adjust at will. Works very well, easy to use. I think the price is a bit steep though.

My first impression was good. The new large but very slim font looked great when putting in the pin. But when I tried to dial a number I could not see anything. Light gray font on a white background! No good at all in the sun.

The iPhone 4S is a small device. I played around with the settings, adjusted font size, contrasts and even tried accessibility which does help, but not so nice.

It probably looks great on the iPad, but really for a phone it is not very friendly.

As the phone key pad is the most important part of a phone I have to say it is a disappointing upgrade. I may have to go back to OS6.

On the battery front it is coping well with all, and maybe the other writer should think about putting in a new battery. $10 on ebay and 5 mins to install. Just buy good tools! It is so easy.

It's not very pro is it? I mean If you make vids for YouTube you expect the size and format to be there in the preferences so that you don't need to go researching. Pro means work flow! I thought...

A lot of Mac newbies giving 5 stars won't solve this problem. Basically this app is ugly in it's GUI, no coverflow, and it is very difficult to manage playlists with a very sticky search function.

Steve Jobs will be turning in his grave. All the things he fought for trashed, the future looks bleak.

Function form and beauty? I must be losing the faith.

Just an update. No you can't go back and restore in Time Machine. So just to reiterate. This is a very ugly, in your face piece of shite that you will have to live with if you are stupid enough to update.
