When it comes to iTunes and transferring music, the first program that comes to mind is iTunes. iTunes, the original data management program developed by Apple, is the default option for most Apple device users. While iTunes contains most of the basic tools and features which are necessary to maintain an iPhone, the program itself is somewhat fully of bugs, errors, and is generally an unstable option.
