Students Rethink iTunes
[… ] when one of your flagship software applications is assigned in schools as a case in feature bloat, it’s crossed some threshold for acceptability.
—Khoi Vinh on the rethinking of iTunes by the students of Fachhochschule Potsdam
The student redesigns can be seen here. It’s student work, so they’re not all winning designs but I agree with Khoi: Apple needs to fix iTunes.
As someone who has taught design at the college level, I love having students redesign existing websites/services. It’s a great exercise in problem solving.
