Why doesn’t Apple fix the bugs?

I ‘upgraded’ to this version and now have no GarageBand. The additional content fails to download and every effort to re-download, re-install etc yields the same result. Searching through the forums, I find that this is a known problem that many people have been experiencing for months, and there seems to be an abhorrent lack of action by Apple to do something about it. Combined with numerous other bugs in Yosemite and other apps recently, it gives the appearance that something has changed for the worse at the core of the Apple….

Not Good

I have had GB since it was introduced and learnt it back to front produced some great songs using loops and real instruments and vocals , i just needed to write a simple score for a sound track
and found this now terrible and what was once a great programe is now rubbish , sorry guys !!! get some new IT techs from planet earth. best advice for anyone go back to the older versions
i was warned now i know why, this is like some sort of toy designed by 12 year olds , back to the drawing board with Garage Band .

So far

So far the new version of Garage band has been really good with only a few hickups. The full content is now free and downloads as fast as possible by cable internet in Aus. But Beware… The total download content will be approx. 16GB-18GB in size and could really screw you internet for the whole month, along with hoging all the networks bandwith for hours.
