iTunes offers tutorials to cover all services and task made available. Apple has provided a good solid solution to getting started with iTunes in a way that is easy to understand. There are some difficulties during signing in and startup that prove challenging when switching between accounts. iTunes also keeps adding additional features that begin to make the application cluttered and complex. However, cleaning up these issues are possible with some time and patience.


Be entertained in multiple ways


One of the things that make iTunes so popular is the app store that comes with it. Anything your tastes desire can be found in the iTunes store.

Their collections can be searched by popularity and genre with recommendations from them allowing you to choose easily. iTunes LP is fully interactive to provide a rich user experience.

iTunes now available in the cloud


iTunes has mov3ed to the cloud allowing full synchronization of all of your devices regardless of which device the file was purchased from. All fo your purchase now appear automatically with no effort needed from you. It is also possible to download all past purchases with purchasing history readily available whenever you need them.

The new iCloud uses Wi-Fi seamlessly to download all purchases to all devices owned by you. This allows you to purchase fro iTunes at work and conveniently find your selections waiting for you when you get home; no syncing is ever needed as its all done for you.


Easy downloading


Downloading music, videos, and movies has never been easier. All of your purchases can be accessed through iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Apple TV, and also a Mac or PC computer. Purchases can be tapped and added to all devices simultaneously. This is made possible by iTunes new iCloud capabilities. This is one of iTunes biggest and best features. iTunes 10.7 is a free downloaded that is provided in both Mac and PC versions; owning an iPhone is not needed and the iCloud feature comes with it.


Verdict


iTunes has become one of the most popular avenues for downloading quality entertainment and deservedly so. Its ease of use and accessibility to all your favorite songs, video, and movies make iTunes top of the line for streaming media. All purchases are affordable and the iCloud allows multiple devices to reflect your purchases with no syncing needed. iTunes has made it possible to enjoy your preferred entertainment anytime and anywhere; just the way you like it. With so many media possibilities at your finger tips at such an affordable price with easy to use software, there are few reasons to complain. But if you need to look for some, there is no subscription service a'la Spotify so you can have unlimited music for a small monthly fee, the software is huge and bloated and there is no way to copy DVD movies and shows onto itunes (although that is more a legal issue than an Apple one). Also annoying is the fact that if you want to share content onto a non-Apple mobile phone or tablet - it is not going to be easy.

Summary: Brilliant if you dont mind having your hands tied
Review: iTunes is n awesome piece of software that looks great, is slickly programmed, polished and great to use. But this is all depending on if you buy all your content from Apple\'s iTunes store. Try to import movies and MP3\'s and Apple make it difficult. It can be achieved but they seem to put obsticles in your way. Try and put MP3\'s and MP4\'s in the itune folder and you need good luck and a degree to find the folders as they are so well hidden.

So although a great experience, i prefer Android due to their easier and more user-friendly approach.
