Apple working on iTunes and App Store redesign

By , Feb 20, 2012

According to 9to5Mac‘s Mark Gurman, Apple is going to overhaul the iTunes Store and App Store designs later this year.

The new design of the iTunes Store and App Store is going to be easier to use and be simpler. The ways of finding new content such as songs, videos, and apps is apparently going to be faster and more efficient…

The new design is also going to be a full application versus the web browser interface that is currently available. The design overhauls are going to first be on the Mac & PC, and the iOS version will be coming a short time after.

A few months ago, we reported something very similar stating that the iTunes and the iTunes Store were getting a new design.

What are your thoughts? Are you excited?

    I don’t know about you guys but I can’t wait for a redesign. I also hope it’s a complete overhaul because iTunes has to be the shittiest piece of software on my Mac right now.

      Try running it on Windows 7 64 bit with a 300GB library. Its the opposite of fun.

      I have a Core i7 3.4Ghz with 8GB of ram and it still runs like a dog :(

        Agreed. I’ve got Win7 x64 on a 3 GHz Core i5 machine and keeping iTunes in the background just makes it lag all the time. Plus the annoying software updater always decides to download 32 bit updates…

    I hope that the new iTunes offers a very simple solution for two family members with TWO DIFFERENT iTunes accounts to use the SAME Computer!

    The stores are based on HTML pages so I guess Apple wants to update them to use newer features introduced since then.

    Also, typo in the last sentence: “the iTunes and iTunes store.”

    Excellent news, seeing as I use iTunes almost daily now, has all my movies, tvshows, music. The technology world has progressed heavily since then so its only normal that they are going to do a redesign.

    I’ve been hearing about the iTunes redesign for some time now.

    I’ll believe it when I see it!!!

    Apple should stop with the rubbish! They should make the option to insert songs like a USB drive.

      You need an Android device because I definitely don’t want that.

        Just because *you* don’t want it doesn’t mean there shouldn’t be an option for all the people who actually do want it.

    I hope they give us a way to sort out thousands of apps in itune, its a pain to use the itunes sorting method right now, coup with syncing problems.

    Lets face it, no matter what Apple do they couldn’t possibly dick up iTunes any further so Ihope this “redesign” does come to fruition.

    God, I HATE iTunes!
