Senuti (iTunes spelled backward) is a Mac OS X computer application written by Whitney Young. It was released on April 19, 2006, for copying songs from an iPod to a Macintosh computer running Mac OS X 10.5 or later. According to FadingRed, the company that sells and distributes Senuti, it has been downloaded over 2 million times.[1]


Senuti is an application for transferring files, such as songs and videos, from an iPod or iPhone back to a Macintosh computer. It is a Mac OS X-exclusive application; no version of Senuti has been released for Microsoft Windows. It can be downloaded as a free demo, which allows the user to transfer 1,000 songs from an iPod. The unlimited version is available for around US$20.


Senuti was developed by Whitney Young, who started as a high school senior searching for a way to transfer music from his iPod onto a Mac computer. Upon realizing that a good solution did not exist, Whitney wrote one. He leveraged the developers in the open-source community to help him write the code.[2] Senuti is now sold by a software company called FadingRed, of which Young is co-founder and lead developer.[3]

Senuti was originally released as GNU GPL software. The code following the 0.50.2 release was changed to payware in February 2009,[4] although publications such as Wired still referred to the product as Open Source code as late as April 2009.[5] The older, GPL version of this software is still available online.
