    The software was billed as an alternative interface for playing and running iPhoto, DVD Player, and iTunes (Internet radio stations could play by adding the station into a playlist in iTunes).

    Front Row was a program included with Macs that was used to access media files on the hard drive. Through Front Row, users could access their iTunes libraries, iPhoto libraries, DVDs inserted into the computer's DVD drive, and movies stored on the hard drive.

    Apple Front Row operated in conjunction with the Apple Remote control that ships with many Macs. Front Row was accessed and content was navigated using the remote.

    Front Row provided a simplified interface designed to easy use with remote controls with few buttons, like Apple's, and large screens. The interface used on the original Apple TV, designed to be seen on HDTVs and controlled with remotes, used Front Row. Instead of providing a traditional file system view like on a desktop computer, it instead offered a series of menus and lists that the user browsed through using simple directional buttons.

    Front Row was discontinued with the July 2011 release of Mac OS X Lion.
