iTunes is a free media manager software from Apple. It comes with all iPod/iPhone/iPad products, and is the most common media manager.

First released in January, 2001, iTunes has expanded to include an advanced shuffle feature (Genius) a music social networking feature (Ping) along with management of music, movies, TV shows, podcasts, Internet radio and Apps.

For ripping CDs, iTunes has a wide variety of options for the more advanced user. Multiple bit-rate options exist for MP3, AAC formats, as well as WAV, AIFF, and Apple Lossless formats.
