Apple Music concept design imagines an iTunes-free Mac app

Apple Music is still a work in progress. That’s especially true on Mac computers, where it comes baked into an increasingly clunky iTunes app. But what if it didn’t have to be so clunky? One designer published a concept, the images of which we’ve included above, that show a new take.

The best part of this concept design is that it’s not iTunes. That alone would be enough to win us over, but Andrew Ambrosino takes it a step further. There’s a simple navigation bar up top, which breaks Apple Music into current categories like My Music, New, For You, Connect and Radio. There’s also a new tab called “Friends,” where you’d be able to check out your friends’ playlists and share music directly.

Diving into specific tabs we see even more improvements. “New” gets a clean look with improved search features. “My Music” makes it easy to switch between different views and easily drag songs into your playlists. Finally, the Friends tab offers a stream of music suggestions from your contacts. You can even choose between everything you friends share and music sent directly to you.

Like we said, this concept design looks great. There’s even a beautiful new desktop miniplayer that matches Apple’s Yosemite style. Hit the source link below for Ambrosino’s full rundown.
