    To me the new iTunes isn't as easy to use and not as smooth as the old version. I will get used to it eventually but right now I strongly dislike the way it looks and feels.

    I am not a fan of it either. Seems even less intuitive than before and I did not think that was possible.

    Not a fan of the fonts. I've stayed away from the new interface as much as I can -- not because I dislike it, but trying to slowly ease into it.

    What problems are you having exactly? Little has changed in how it's actually used. The UI is a bit different, but "streamlined" is the word I would use there.

    I'm neutral to it. Doesn't really bother me one way or the other.

    I liked it. Lol
    Took some getting used to but I like the changes. Agree seems streamlined and seems to be smoother operating.

    It's different UI for sure, but I don't mind it. After learning how to navigate things, I'm sure I'll enjoy it more... It does seem much faster though, which I really like.

    I've never been bothered or annoyed by any iTunes version... until now. I STRONGLY DISLIKE this new version! (...and to comment on jmp316, it is NOT faster, it's actually slower now)!

    I did the same thing. The new features and the increase in speed makes it amazing.
    The new views and the add to current paying list is awesome also.
    I think they did a good job. Takes some people some time to get used to change.

    I really do miss the sidebar on the left of iTunes, I'm not sure if there's a way of bringing it back. I don't like been in the actual iTunes store all the time, sometimes I just like listening to the music and watching the shows that I have in my library. Is a little different and a little tougher to get to your library, at least for me.

    There are some minor things I don't care for, but overall I like it.

    Don't care much about iTunes overall but the changes seem to make it better.
