iTunes is a free application for your Mac or PC, which organises and plays your digital music and video on your computer, as well as keeping all your content in sync. It’s also a store on your computer, iPod touch, iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV that has everything you need to be entertained – anywhere, anytime.

iTunes lets you enjoy all your music, films, video, and TV programmes on your Mac or PC. When you want to watch or listen to something, you no longer have to look through your CDs or flip through channels – just go to your computer and open iTunes. With your entire media collection in your iTunes library, you can browse everything faster, organise it all more easily and play anything whenever the mood strikes.

What makes the iTunes Store such a hit? More than 13 million high-quality, DRM-free songs priced at just 69¢, 99¢, or $1.29 each (in the US). Visit the iTunes Store on your computer, iPod touch, iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV. Browse around and have a listen. Preview a song before you buy it and get recommendations based on music you like.

Or discover new music by going social with iTunes Ping. Follow your favourite artists and friends, find out what they’re listening to and join the conversation with the world’s most passionate music fans.

Music is just the beginning. You can also rent or buy blockbuster films and HD episodes of your favorite TV programmes, shop for audiobooks and download apps for your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad. Subscribe to free podcasts about anything and everything.

iTunes 11.1 is a minor upgrade and adds new features such as iTunes Radio (US Only) which can be used ad-free once subscribing to iTunes Match.

Another handy feature is you can now create custom stations of your favorite podcasts that update automatically with new episodes. Your stations, subscriptions, and current play position sync over iCloud to the Podcasts app.

Finally, you can now use iTunes to sync your favorite music, movies, and more to devices with iOS 7.
