Apple, please rework iTunes on Windows…
The iTunes client on Windows is terrible to the say the least… everything is incredibly slow and barely works, one of the most irritating things is the Apple Music integration… it’s a fucking joke, I mean for 2 straight days I just wasn’t able to listen to any song in my Library because it was “Loading my shit from iCloud.” And when I was able listen to my music, it just took damn forever to skip between my songs… where as on my iPhone its instant. I just don’t understand whats taking so long, I mean my internet speed is 200+ MB/s so it can’t possibly be that.
This isn’t the only issue, the entire UI just feels forced… I mean they tried their hardest to force the Apple design philosophy on Windows, and they just did a terrible job at it. The consequences of their design really shows in the overall performance of iTunes… I mean each tab takes upwards of 3-5 secs to load, and every action just takes forever to execute. You also have things like the UI elements glitching out after I minimize the application as you can see [here.](https://i.imgur.com/YUhfn4s.png) iTunes on Windows feels like those video game ports from Console to PC, it wasn’t designed for Windows but they just went with it regardless.
I don’t know if Apple is intentionally neglecting iTunes on Windows because its a competitor to the Mac or something, I don’t really think they are but who knows. Regardless of the reasoning, Apple needs to re-build iTunes for Windows from the ground up… iTunes on Windows is simply outdated software and trying to fix it will be a waste of time.
Just to put it out there, yes I am a paying customer for Apple Music. And please don’t tell me to just buy a Mac, they’re overpriced as hell and not worth the money IMO.
