iTunes is a free app for Mac and PC. It is a combination of media player, media library and mobile device management. It is designed by Apple Inc. to download, play and organize audio and video sources on computers running OS X or Windows system.

Through the iTunes store, users can download various sources such as music, videos, movies, TV shows, etc. Users can also download apps for their iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.

As a media library, iTunes also allows users to sync local contents such as music and videos kept on Mac or PC to its media library. Before syncing local contents to iTunes, please make sure that your local contents are compatible with iTunes in format. Until now, iTunes supports the formats of MP3, AIFF, WAV, AAC, Apple Lossless and (.aa).
