History and Features of iTunes By: Seth Comerford
The Start – SoundJam MP The first and earliest edition of the now popular iTunes started out as something like this, know as the SoundJam MP. SoundJam MP was created by Robin Casady and Michael Greene to talk about their latest music player. After a few short negotiations, Casady and Greene sold the rights for SoundJam to Apple. Immediately Apple set to work on the music app that would forever change the digital landscape of music.
The 1 st edition of iTunes Roughly 10 months later, Apple debuted iTunes alongside iDVD. By offering this program for free Apple had 275,000 downloads in the first week. The iTunes application on the Macintosh computers quickly became the best and well known jukebox.
iTunes 9 Just 8 years after the first release of iTunes, much has been accomplished. They made the iPod which was meant to be your own personal handheld iTunes, but turned into so much more, they created different layouts to fit the current vibe, added a shop, and then features that you can use to share and trade music with friends and family.
iTunes Decade This past April iTunes experienced its first decade. In excitement for this special event, they created a page called “ A Decade Of iTunes” and went back through the years of popular hits, albums, and music videos. They also revisited their years as an early music application that soon built its way to fame. They included their history from 2003 –2013, and the accomplishments that went with each year.
