If you're using OS X Mountain Lion iTunes is available for syncing. Learn about that and other OS X Mountain Lion entertainment features here.
There are so many ways to view and interact with media on your Mac. This includes everything from music and videos to podcasts and academic lectures—even games that you can play online with your friends.
OS X Mountain Lion makes all of these things fun and accessible with iTunes and other built-in tools. You can even access your media on other Apple devices using the corresponding apps for iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch.
There are many benefits to using iTunes and other entertainment apps if you have more than one Apple device. They're designed specifically so you can access your media anywhere (on your Mac, iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch), no matter which device you used to purchase it.
We'll be using the Mac for most of the demonstrations in this lesson, but if you have another device, don't worry. The corresponding apps for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch are easy to use. The important thing is that you get to know some of the basic tools and features and come away with a solid understanding of what each app can do. Then you can explore the apps some more on your own.
