Why is iTunes such a horrible piece of ...

Dec 5, 2018 18 Comments

Every time I'm forced to use iTunes I want to switch over to the Android ecosystem.

Horrible bloated, slow performance, complicated non discoverable UI.

How can a company so renowned for design and UX manage to produce this junk?

    Why have you not switched to Android yet? It's just so much better and cheaper. Just get a pixel 3..

      Works better than mcafee software and handles user data better than OPs company.

      I agree with the McAfee part. But in terms of UX and design, it’s gotta be the single most vile piece of software on this planet.

      If there were a movie made out of it, it’d be called β€œThe Maze”

    The reason is just that it was first to market and it used to be less full of shit and very streamlined. It took 5 yrs to get the olds to even try iTunes also and nobody has the energy to teach that demographic how to use the competitors anymore.

    I don't understand why ppl complain about iTunes. For power users who like to edit metadata or create smart playlists etc there is no alternative than iTunes. It's the main reason I live in Apple ecosystem. Same applies to Photos app. Google photos isn't for power user you need native client. They had picasaa which is discontinued and for music doubletwist was horrible.
