Introduction to iTunes

iTunes is a program, preinstalled on most newer Macs, for listening to music from a variety of sources and in a variety of formats.

Apple describes iTunes as a "digital jukebox" that, at the most basic level, allows you to listen to music.   Songs that have been downloaded onto your computer, traditional audio CDs, and files from external sources can be opened in iTunes using familiar stereo controls.   Files can then be saved on your hard drive or burned to CDs. iTunes 6.0 also allows you to listen to podcasts (free audio programs) and watch videos.

iTunes is a member of the iLife '05 software suite and can be used to gather music and other audio tracks for convenient access in iPhoto, iMovieHD, and iDVD.
