Download iTunes 8.1
ITunes is a store. A player. Your iPod or iPhone’s best friend. ITunes changes the way you enjoy music and video. ITunes is a free application for Mac and PC. It plays all your digital music and video. It syncs content to your iPod, iPhone, and Apple TV. And it’s an entertainment superstore that stays open 24/7.
ITunes 8.1 upgrade is essential for those who have purchased the new 3rd generation iPod Shuffle as syncing new iPod with iTunes without this new upgrade would not be possible.
New iTunes Features
Play a song, click the Genius button, and iTunes creates a playlist of other songs from your library that go great together. Genius playlists help you discover songs in your library you never knew you had, and rediscover forgotten favorites.
Let Genius introduce you to new music you’ll love. As you select songs in your library, the Genius sidebar displays songs from the iTunes Store that go great with it. It won’t recommend songs already in your library, and you can preview and buy recommended songs directly from the sidebar.
High-quality, DRM-free music.
iTunes Plus is the new standard on iTunes. You can choose from millions of iTunes Plus songs from all four major music labels and thousands of independents. With iTunes Plus, you get high-quality, 256-Kbps AAC encoding. All free of burn limits and digital rights management (DRM). So iTunes Plus music will play on iPod, Apple TV, all Mac and Windows computers, and many other digital music players.
HD TV Shows
Purchase select episodes of your favorite TV shows in high definition. Or get the whole season in HD with a Season Pass.
iTunes 8 is now screen reader friendly on both Mac and PC. Manage your iTunes library using VoiceOver in Mac OS X Leopard or Window-Eyes for Windows XP and Windows Vista.
Turn on the new Visualizer and lose yourself in a 3D-scape of spheres, ribbons, and lights that pulsate to the beat and tempo of the song you’re playing.
iTunes gets a speed boost. Now when it comes to loading large libraries, browsing the iTunes Store, and syncing your devices, iTunes responds faster than before.
