About iTunes
iTunes is the software application you use with iPod nano. iTunes can sync music, 
audiobooks, podcasts, and more with iPod nano. When you connect iPod nano to your 
computer, iTunes opens automatically. 

This guide explains how to use iTunes to download songs and other audio and video to 
your computer, create personal compilations of your favorite songs (called playlists), 
add them to iPod nano, and adjust iPod nano settings.

iTunes also has many other features. You can make your own CDs that play in standard 
CD players (if your computer has a CD-recordable drive); listen to streaming Internet 
radio; watch videos and TV shows; rate songs according to preference; and much more.
