ITunes And Its Updates
ITunes is an Apple Inc. app that has been used on multiple devices that use the iOS operating system, and it has been one of the most used programs in history. The program can perform various functions and as such is one of the most useful apps that you can own on your Apple products. Even if you don’t own an Apple product, you can use this app to listen to music and perform other things.
The application supports many audio files that include MP3, AAC, AIFF, WAV, MPEG-4, and Apple Lossless. The app can also play the files of the popular app named QuickTime and can auto play CD’s that you insert into your computer.
The app supports local file sharing with its users over the closed Digital Audio Access Protocol (DAAP) that was created by Apple for this very reason. It has an excellent sound processing feature and video viewing capabilities.
To view a video, you just need to drag and drop any file that is supported by the ITunes app, and it will play it automatically. In late 2005 the app allowed for full-length movies to be streamed alongside many shows. Since then thousands of movies have been viewed and bought on the ITunes app, and the numbers continue to rise as the app gets updated with new features and an increasing movie database.
The app also allows for the purchase and reading of books. In 2010 Apple revealed the iBook’s feature that allowed for users to purchase and store books. Later it implemented the bookmarks ability and many new ease-of-use features.
Another feature that ITunes app had was podcasting. The user could create or subscribe to any podcast as long as they entered the RSS and Url feeds. By doing this Apple was a pioneer when it came to introducing the podcast scene to the mainstream culture.
Why we love this app
The most useful part of this app comes from its synchronization ability. If you owned any Apple product and you wanted to update it, transfer music or any other files all you had to do was connect it to your computer and the product would synchronize. Once synchronized the ITunes software would automatically check if there are any updates for your product like the iPhone, iPad or iPod and would prompt the user to upgrade the software on those devices.
All in all, the app is a fantastic feature to the Apple family and we welcome all new versions of it and the new features it will introduce with each update.
