I was complaining on Twitter yesterday about the sad state of iTunes, lamenting the fact that it’s current state is confusing and makes me feel like I’m inept. TFIB reader Keorattana Luangrath in response sent a link to a well-done redesign by Brye Kobayashi, a Honolulu based designer. His efforts focus on more intuitive navigation, an expansive, editorial iTunes Store, and a simplified library view.
I think what he nails is the proper hierarchy of information. A left navigation bar is a web standard but as you can see it’s so much more intuitive to browse. You click the nav on the left which adjusts the nav at the top in the right pane. Simple. I also enjoy that he’s applied the iOS styling overall, feels fresh and new.
