iTunes 11 – SUCKS! Bye-bye iTunes DJ
But the problem with iTunes 11 is what it lacks, and that is iTunes DJ, the best feature of iTunes EVER, I’m not kidding. You could make yourself a fake iTunes DJ using a smart playlist and using the mini player to see what’s next in a mini list but it’s not the same because the list is updated every time you play a new song, so even if you liked a few songs from the list by the time the next song is played you’ll get a new list, it’s like scratching you ear with your toes.
Another way iTunes 11 SUCKS big time is that if you’re trying to get back to the latest iTunes 10 you’re library won’t work anymore, so you’re STUCK in iTunes 11 FOREVER. Luckily I had my iTunes library backed up recently and only I had to add a few songs in two minutes, but if you didn’t you’re out of luck because it warns you that the “iTunes Library.itl” file has been modified by a newer version of iTunes and it doesn’t even opens.
I’m sure there are a lot of heavy iTunes users are extremely pissed at Apple for this decision to kill iTunes DJ, and I beg them to bring it back.
Another thing iTunes 11 is missing is Cover Flow; you get a second window with the Album Cover which makes things complicated.
They’ve designed iTunes 11 to make us buy stuff from them more easy, have improved functionality as a music / video player.
Don’t upgrade. If you’re still on iTunes 10 disable automatic updates and backup your database right now. I’m not kidding, RIGHT NOW. I’ll wait…
If you love iTunes DJ as much as I do, I encourage you to sign this petition. Who knows maybe it’s someone at Apple that’s not a complete moron and will listen to our complaints.
