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 more than 2 million times.
Senuti is an application for transferring files, such as songs and videos, from an iPod or iPhone to a Macintosh computer. It is an exclusive application of Mac OS X; 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 student looking for a way to transfer music from her iPod to a Mac computer. Realizing that a good solution did not exist, Whitney wrote one. He exploited the developers of the open source community to help him write the code. Senuti is now sold by a software company called FadingRed, of which Young is co-founder and lead developer. Senuti was originally released as GNU GPL software. The code following version 0.50.2 was changed to payware in February 2009, although publications such as Wired still refer to the product as open source code in April 2009. The older GPL version of this software is still available online.
