Apple ends the season with a cleaner iTunes 11

By Staff writers | 12:53 pm 30/11/2012

Spring is just about the end, and almost as if to coincide with the new season, Apple is doing a cleanup of its iTunes music management application, introducing version 11 with a more minimalist design.

Forget the cluttered look of iTunes that we had yesterday, with its Finder and Explorer-like interface with categories and playlists on the right, because iTunes is sporting less of that and more of, well, less.

Less does appear to be more – at least more clear – with the new cleaner iTunes, released this week before the beginning of December.

The window view is now more compact, still keeping with a view that shows covers of albums, books, movies, and TV shows.

iTunes 11: the tiny media player for your desktop.

You can even make the whole iTunes interface into a smaller player, perfect for people who hate the clutter of big music playback software.

Overall, iTunes 11 looks like an update that’s worth checking out, especially if you’re a part of the iOS ecosystem, because while it might take some getting used to, it already looks a lot cleaner than what we had last week.
