We live in the era of streaming services, but many users still keep a small collection of offline music. Hence, to manage this music definitely, there will be a requirement for music applications not only limited to playing all those files but also organizing the music collections.

However, we all know that iTunes is efficient when it comes to recognizing Apple devices, as it simply helps us to connect Apple devices to the computer, but it is a media player.

But, the problem with iTunes is not that it does not look good, as it features a much cleaner and easier user-friendly interface. However, there are still few programs available that have better features than those brought by the tech giant Apple’s iTunes, and not only that even they are much more reliable than iTunes when managing your media library, in addition to offering you a better listening experience.
