I uninstalled iTunes from my computer because MY GAWD did Apple screw that latest update. That was the last straw for me. X_X

Since I use a different OS, iTunes is actually incompatible for me, but the Linux equivalent of that is Banshee and it works alright(like I said, it's somewhat identical to iTunes, only if you open a file on it, it has a special "File Que" list, where unspecified files go and you can remove them if you want to).

But I can see why you had enough, since if I remember correctly, they did screw iTunes up but good(first by changing the icon colour from blue to red, which I HATED!)!

Yeah, iTunes was getting worse and worse over time... there's just too many problems to count.

First, they changed the color of their logo (like WTF??), the app uses a lot of space when opened, the interface was constantly changed, even to the point of removing features and worst of all, all of the album covers shown on the side were replaced by the same multicolored microphone icon (because Apple now verifies that you bought music from the iTunes Store). Not to mention, you can't even access the music library on the iPhone, which we noticed when messing around with my mom's iPhone.

So basically, I switched to another software called "MusicBee" and I'm fairly satisfied. It's much simpler to manage and I can actually arrange the panels and customize the interface however I please. Heck, the software even has a sync lyrics feature (which is really cool! I've never seen that kind of feature before).

So yeah, in other words: iTunes sucks now... and so does Apple (never liked their brand anyways).

My mum's computer has an older version of iTunes(but she does not wish to update it, I think because of a certain setting), but I'll be sure to tell her not to update it(since she uses iTunes as well)!

Ooo, that's cool! :D

Apple's had a good set of reliable machines(by that I mean laptops and other PCs), but yeah.

Well it's just that Apple keeps updating iTunes every month or so (which is REALLY annoying) and this last update they did (12.5.1) is the worst one I've seen so far.
So I've switched to something much simpler like "MusicBee" and I like it so far.

Damn son! Sorry to hear that. Glad to hear you found something better and simpler. I always use Windows Media Player. Never understood iTunes.
