I ‘grew up’ with itunes. I’ve used it since the very early days and prefer the player over everything else. You do get to a point where you’ve used something for so long, it would be an absolute headache to change to something else!
In the old days, which are not so far away – couple of months at best? Anyway, I used to have the huge Songs list up. This is the screen I’ve always worked with, even doing radio broadcasts from it. But fings ain’t wot they use ta be on dear ole iTunes this morning. After the latest Update, it seems the Up Next feature is working waaayyyy too well.
I completely ignored it in the old days, never even having to look into how it worked. Now, it’s a Major Incident trying to get an album to play! And, it seems, Up Next will no longer be ignored. So, for those of us in Frustration Land (again!), here’s what I’ve found so far:
Up Next has stored everything you’ve ever played in its listings. Even if you check the History, and you get back that ‘You haven’t played any songs’, it’s lying to you! There will always be some sort of list on the go, in Up Next whenever you play a new track. You can never clear Up Next, even though it looks as if you have.
So, if all you wanna do is play an album, the best solution around this is to stick that album in the Up Next tool, coz it really WILL NOT be ignored, no more!
Well, until the next iTunes Update, let’s hope.
