During the WWDC Keynote on June 11, 2007, Steve Jobs announced that Cover Flow would be added as a view option in Leopard’s Finder.

Well, was it? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 194.50.118.230 (talk) 16:43, 11 February 2009 (UTC)



How about adding a link to this page from the iTunes article, it would make sense. Thanks. Brad. Nzv8fan 03:11, 21 September 2006 (UTC)

I have added a screenshot of the new full screen mode Cover Flow included in iTunes 7.1, but the screen is from Windows. If somebody has an iMac with the latest version, could they replace my screenshot? Thanks :) -- Ampersand2006 ( talk · user page design ) 18:54, 12 March 2007 (UTC)

I have replaced the one that I had up with the one featured on the iTunes article. --Ampersand2006 ( talk · user page design ) 18:02, 16 March 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Itunes7coverflow.png[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Itunes7coverflow.png is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 10:14, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

Cover Flow Usability[edit]

Something should be said here about the usability of cover flow and well as any criticisms - I'm sure there's plenty being said out there. Scott 110 15:17, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

Where is source code of this program?[edit]

Where is source code of this program? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 218.50.84.71 (talk) 06:35, 22 January 2008 (UTC)

You can always grab a similar script to the coverflow's behavior from compiz-fusion's Flip Switcher plugin dealie. 66.168.19.135 (talk) 21:01, 20 June 2008 (UTC)

New coverflow image for the ipod touch[edit]

The old image looked like it was taken from a camera, and was a bad quality picture. Therefore, I have updated the image with a better quality image. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Thegoldbar (talkcontribs) 02:19, 7 June 2008 (UTC)

patent?[edit]

Is Cover Flow patented? – Kaihsu (talk) 19:28, 21 April 2009 (UTC)

vertical Cover Flow?[edit]

Is there an instance of a vertical Cover Flow implemented? – Kaihsu (talk) 19:30, 21 April 2009 (UTC)

Windows Media Player 12 + Coverflow?[edit]

Is it true? There's no link confirming this, only a blog. Microsoft not anounced that. Also, IT IS ONLY AN IMPLEMENTATION, like the KDE version. It's not official. (I don't speak English sorry) --Nicolunacba (talk) 21:58, 5 June 2009 (UTC)

"NN"?[edit]

The license is listed as "NN" - what does that stand for? It is *not* obvious! 81.153.106.38 (talk) 23:02, 21 June 2010 (UTC)

I have no idea what "NN" means. I replaced it with "Proprietary". --Hroðulf (or Hrothulf) (Talk) 16:51, 13 May 2011 (UTC)

Reference ^ "Apple Purchased CoverFlow For iTunes 7": Page was moved[edit]

Reference ^ "Apple Purchased CoverFlow For iTunes 7". (Currently Reference Number 3) points to a page which was removed or moved.

I was unable to retrieve the proper site.

I've replaced the link with the archived version, and added a direct link to the source (the original reference was a blog post anyway).Diego Moya (talk) 09:24, 12 May 2011 (UTC)

iOS 7 and cover flow[edit]

Hello,

I don't think its fair to say that Cover flow is dead in iOS 7. Instead it has been redesigned. iLounge says: Cover Flow has been redesigned as a flat, scrolling mosaic of 12-15 album covers at a time, depending on the iPod/iPhone model you’re using. Any entries without artwork are represented by a black box, with white text running diagonally across it. See [1] for details. I have also fixed the first ref. - Thanks, Hoshie 02:29, 10 October 2013 (UTC)

I am not aware of any documentation that specifies that this is actually CF. One source refers to it as such, but it seems to be more of a CF replacement, similar to the iTunes screensaver in OS X. If you can find evidence that supports the source's claim, feel free to add it. However, it seems to me to be simply a replacement that fills a gap left by the removal of CF.  drewmunn  talk  07:18, 10 October 2013 (UTC)
UPDATE: the feature is called Album Wall, so it's not CF. See page 61 of the iPhone/iOS 7 manual for confirmation.  drewmunn  talk  07:34, 10 October 2013 (UTC)
