# Senuti

Senuti (iTunes spelled backward) is a Mac OS X computer application written by Whitney Young. Instead of transferring music and other content from an iTunes library to an iPod, it transfers the content on those devices back to a desktop iTunes library. This program can transfer songs, videos, and podcasts from iPod/iPhone to Mac. The trial version of this program is good for 30 days, but it has the additional limitations of a maximum of 1,000 songs transferred, and it will also pause for 30 seconds after every 10 songs.
