iTunes has come a long way since it was first released. It is one of the most complete multimedia players in the market and is indispensable for iPod and iPhone owners. With iTunes, users can play almost all the formats available nowadays and the graphical user interface is very simple. Indeed, iTunes can be easily setup to serve as the main hub for all your multimedia needs.
As one would expect from any player today, iTunes provides support for both audio and video. Users will be familiar with the way iTunes plays video, since its exactly the same as having a Quicktime player built in.
However, audio is this application's key player. Users can play any kind of audio file and, what is even better, they can buy their favorite songs online via the iTunes store.
Songs can be sorted in a lot of ways and this makes it particularly easy to find the tune that has been stuck in your head. A mini player allows users to go on with their business without worrying about a bulky screen in the background. All in all, a great user interface, superb playing quality and ease of use make this program a strong competitor in the race for the multimedia player crown.
Now, with version 7.5, users can activate their iPhones and there is a new music game available, which was designed for iPod nano (third generation), iPod classic, and iPod (fifth generation).
