iTunes is Apple's jukebox software and a gateway to Apple's online media store and portable devices like iPods and iPhones. It's currently in its eighth release, and now features a built-in recommendation tool that can create playlists based on listening habits from your library, as well as other iTunes users.
The software started out as Mac-only, but became cross-platform with Windows shortly after Apple realized that it could make more money from music and movie sales than with iPods alone.
From finding song lyrics and managing playlists to starting a private listening session, these tips will make you a Spotify master.
