The History of iTunes
SoundJam MP, released by Casady & Greene in 1998, was renamed “iTunes” when Apple purchased it in 2000.The primary developers of the software moved to Apple as part of the acquisition, and simplified SoundJam’s user interface, added the ability to burn CDs, and removed its recording feature and skin support.The first version of iTunes, promotionally dubbed “World’s Best and Easiest To Use Jukebox Software,” was announced on January 9, 2001.Subsequent releases of iTunes often coincided with new hardware devices, and gradually included support for new features, including “smart playlists”, the iTunes Store, and new audio formats.
iTunes features a music library. Each track has attributes, called metadata, that can be edited by the user, including changing the name of the artist, album, and genre, year of release, artwork, among other additional settings.
Selected tracks to play randomly from the library, though users could press a button to skip a song and go to the next in the list
iTunes includes sound processing features, such as equalization, "sound enhancement" and crossfade
