What’s heart got to do with it?
I signed up for the free Apple Music trial on my iMac and so far I quite like it. However, I don’t understand the ‘heart’ button. If I click it, I expect to be able to see a list of songs I have previously ‘hearted’, so I can find the stuff I like. There isn’t even a recently played list! Adam Beeston That button tells Apple Music what you like, so that it can refine its suggestions in the ‘For You’ tab. But I agree, it’s ridiculous. I’d much rather have a tab called Favourites than Connect, which I never use. However, there is a history function. clicking the icon in the status area that looks like a bullet-point list shows the Up Next list. Clicking the clock icon there changes the list to Previously Played. There are lots of things I still don’t like about this. Up Next and Previously Played are, confusingly, sorted in reverse order from one another, and neither shows the current track to help orientate you. But iTunes has always played fast and loose with the rules of good design.
To show a complete list of all your favourited tracks, create a Smart Playlist by chooisng File > New > Smart Playlist, then set a single rule that matches tracks where ‘Loved’ is set to true.
The history icon in iTunes is hard to find and doesn’t work the same way as in iOS’s Music app.
