If you use an Apple device, then you’re probably very familiar with iTunes, one of the only ways to get songs on your device. It’s one of the most used media applications available.

A concert in your pocket

Play music the way you want when you use iTunes, one of the leading media players with multiple features available.

iTunes is the pre installed application on every Apple device that lets you buy music and video content. For the most part, this is the only way you’ll be able to download music and video content on your iPhone or Mac computer. It’s the place to go for music and other media downloads when you don’t want to use a third-party application.

iTunes has a familiar, user-friendly interface you can’t help but want to keep on using. The focus for iTunes, of course, is its music library, which is constantly expanding with new songs for you to download. Creating playlists from your albums is extremely simple, and the software will even organize your music into playlists based on each song’s type.

However, there are only a handful of file formats supported on iTunes, meaning not all the media you’re looking for is available to download. This, combined with the poor performance you’ll receive when using this application with any computer, will result in a low-performance level that may make the software hard to use.

Amongst the simple design offered by the iTunes user interface, is a myriad of features that you may never use. These features will cause the menu to become crowded when you’re using this application.

Where can you run this program?

iTunes is available for Mac, Windows, Android and IOS devices.

Is there a better alternative?

Yes, Spotify has a better system for managing your music while YouTube has many user-made videos that are downloadable if you’re using premium. If you’re looking for series and movies, then Netflix is a better option.

Our take

iTunes is a good option for buying individual media. However, this does become costly and so it’s best to use an alternative.

Should you download it?

No, if you can use another app it’s best to do so. You’ll get more out of using Spotify, YouTube, and Netflix than from iTunes.
