Apple introduced a completely redesigned iTunes on Thursday, featuring a simpler full-window interface and a new library view that makes it easier to view music and movies.

The new iTunes Store and App Store showcases featured content right at the top and easy-to-browse shelves serving up popular music and movie choices. Users also have a preview history that shows all of the music and movies that has been sampled.

A new search feature has been implemented to allow searches across the entire iTunes library, including music and movies. The new MiniPlayer makes it easy to control music with a small tool bar.

Another new feature, Up Next, allows users to see what songs are coming up and queue songs or albums. It also features seamless integration with iCloud, which when associated with your devices allows you to automatically download all of your purchases into your library on your Mac or PC.

The new iTunes will be available in October as a free download at
