I mean, there is nothing special about iTunes, right? In fact I find it clunky. I slapped a 32GB micro SD into my Android phone and have my music on there, and the stock music player is more user friendly than iTunes is.

Yeah I'm messing around with other apps. I was just pointing out that the stock Android app is better than iTunes.

:shake: Apple.

I felt like I was one of the few in the 90's that preferred Macs over Windows 95 / 98, and have pretty much always used Apple / Macs. iTunes has never really bothered me that much. It is a memory hog, and could have a better UX, but I guess I'm used to it.

I haven't tried Apple Music yet, and after reading that article, don't plan to. I suppose I'll continue with the Appleverse for now, but I've contemplated switching to Windows / Android. Seems like that could be a big effort though, I don't know if I'm up for it.

iTunes is clunky and I'd much rather be able to drag and drop, but I do prefer the Apple mobile music app on over Android.

(Prefacing this post with this is my last iPhone once my contract is up in November, so bear with me)

Anyone know why the fuck the Apple Music app in iOS is doing this?

When selecting an artist that have multiple albums on my phone, Music will display each album nicely so I can select one, like this (my preference):

Image

But randomly, it will choose artists with multiple albums, and instead of showing a nice screen with each album separated, it shows each album and each album's tracklisting in one huge sheet (if you keep scrolling this section, it goes through 3-4 albums and all their songs). Anyone know a fix so that each artist's section displays like the Radiohead one?

It's probably protesting all the improper title capitalization

It's perfect. The only thing awry is the lack of spaces around the backslash of the Supercollider single

Mine does it with artists with only 2 or less albums on my phone.

Strange, I have ~4 for PJ and it's doing that. I checked the metadata and tags and everything seems the same as RH :?:

iTunes handles metadata differently for MP3/AAC/WAV. Try converting the format of the offending album and see if that fixes it.

I know it effects album artwork. I think you won't see artwork changes to WAV files? Curious to see what happens here. Try changing your files to AAC, I think that might do it.

Are you using itunes for file management, or something else? I should just plunk the $60 down for TunesGo.

Including metadata? Not a similar option here.
