Along the top of the iTunes music store screen are three buttons: Featured, Top Charts, and Genius. By default, you are shown the Featured selections when you start iTunes.

1. Top Charts –the Popular Stuff

If you like to see what is popular in a particular category, you will want to browse the Top Charts category. Tap Top Charts at the top, and then tap a category or genre to see what is popular for that category.



These songs or videos are selling well, but that doesn't mean that they will appeal to you. Always give the item a preview and check out the reviews before you pay for it.


Tap the Genre button in the upper left corner to select a particular genre. For example, if you touch Singer Songwriter, you will see the top ten songs or albums in that category only.

The initial view shows you the Top Songs on the left and Top Albums on the right.

You simply scroll as you would in any other program on the iPad.



2. Genres – Types of Music

Touch the Genres button to browse music based on a genre. This is particularly helpful if you have a favorite type of music and would like to browse just that category.

There is quite an extensive list of genres to browse; just scroll down the list as you would in any other iPad program.



Go ahead and browse through the music until you see something that you would like to preview or buy.

3. Browsing for Videos (Movies)

Touch the Movies or TV Shows buttons on the bottom to browse all the video-related items (see Figure 1).

Figure 1. Browsing the Movie category in iTunes on your iPad.

You can also use your finger to scroll all the way to the bottom of the page to check out the links there, including these links in particular:

  • New to Own

  • New to Rent

  • All HD Movies



Tap on any movie or video to see more details or preview the selection. You have the option to rent or buy some movies and TV shows.

Rentals – Some movies are available for rent for a set number of days.

NOTE

Rental period in the US is 24 hours and rental period in Canada is 48 hours. Other countries may vary slightly.

Buy – This allows you to purchase and own the movie or TV show forever.



4. Finding TV Shows

When you're done checking out the movies, tap the TV Shows button at the top to see what is available from your favorite shows (see Figure 2).





When you tap on a TV series, you will see the individual episodes available. Tap any episode to check out the 30-second preview.

Figure 2. Buying and watching a TV show

When you are ready to buy, you can choose to buy an individual episode or the entire TV series. Many, but not all TV Series, allow you to purchase individual episodes.

Maybe you want to get your fix of Modern Family and see the pilot episode that you missed. You can do this quickly and easily on your iPad.

NOTE

There is also a Free TV Episode category, where you can get samples and bonus content.

5. Audiobooks in iTunes

Audiobooks are a great way to enjoy books without having to read them. Some of the narrators are so fun to listen to, it is almost like watching a movie. For example, the narrator of the Harry Potter series can do dozens of truly amazing voices. We recommend that you try out an audiobook on your iPad; audiobooks are especially great when you are on an airplane and want to escape from the rest of the passengers, but don't want to have the light on.


If you are an audiobook aficionado, be sure to check out the audiobooks in iTunes.



You can use the top three buttons to browse the audiobooks in iTunes:

  • Featured

  • Top Charts

  • Categories
