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.
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.
