I actually like the new UI. But there is one song in my entire 5000 song library that is for some reason 'greyed out'. It plays just fine.

Is apple leaving aqua-glass-bubble-style for window control elements....? (close and maximize button)

I hope not. Those traffic lights are such a cool concept! I don't mind them getting rid of the border around toolbar buttons though.

i cannot appreciate their design at all. i dont like the font, the always grey, the dominant apple logo, the sooo old style shadows under the covers, the tiny control elements.... i dont know. apple design starts to look a little old. but thats maybe just me.

Trackpads and mice don't require large control elements. I'm sure if Microsoft wasn't trying to make Windows 8 a one-stop shop for both touch and mice, it'd still have smaller control elements as well.

I believe that just means it's "unticked". You can check this in song view.

Hey, you're right. No idea why/how it was unticked though? Ah well!

Thanks Lamp0.

Here's a wild guess: You or someone else unchecked it.

:p

well thats for people like you and me - but i know tons of people, either unskilled with mice or little disadvanted in sight that appreciate the little bigger control elements. especially with the big screens and high resolution nowadays control elements have to increase in size.

i tried a macbook pro with that retina and my gf and I decided that such a high resolution with such tiny control elements are not comfortable at all. but yeh, in the end no big deal.

I have no idea why, but my MiniPlayer isn't showing the artist and song info, just the play/pause/rewind controls. Every review I've read said that the latter is only supposed to appear on a mouseover. It doesn't seem to be based on size, either, I've had the MiniPlayer both as small and as large as you can have it, and it's just not showing up.

It starts to work perfectly, once you get used to it.

The broken search works if you ignore the bubble thing that comes up while typing and press enter, where it works the same as it used to, annoying yes, but still better than living without a proper search,

Same here - it seems to be a bug when you have full keyboard access enabled for all controls under system preferences -> keyboard -> keyboard shortcuts. I hope they fix it sooner than later as osx is so much more keyboard friedly with this option turned on.

With zero iOS device, I still tried this on Windows because I'm interested in the UI :p (yeah, I know :D )

After removing as much stuff that will not be used as possible, I'm left with just iTunes itself and I like it. I'll probably use this as my main player for a while.

Well found another Bug they will want to address in the near future..

Now what I'd like to see is the option for a dark background to make a return.. I'm not a fan on the white bg..

Other than that, I'm quite happy with it.

Weird. :p Have you tried it again? It might have been a one-off bug since it's basically loading a web page there.

If you click the search icon arrow you can turn off "Search Entire Library". This will mean it searches within what ever view your using.

Is that what you mean?

Not at all, did you read my post?

1. Enter your search term in the search box, and after the last character press ENTER

2. The search appears in the same way it always used to

thus:

Note that changing your search term while in the view shown in screenshot 2 will break the display entirely until you change view. BUG

The new context menu style looks good. But I thought they made a perfectly usable UI messy and confusing.

Can't say it's messy nor confusing, just different. Apple just released it, give them some time to work out the kinks and incorporate user feedback.

^^ haha "Apple" and "Incorporate User feedback" should not be used together.

Yet Apple released quite a few updates in the past addressing interface complaints from its userbase. Hell, the entire Aqua interface saw multiple revisions largely based on feedback.

Guess they must be waiting for more people to complain about the Energy Saver Prefs in ML before they fix it. It's been out-of-shape since the DPs.
