I have had the IPT for a few months and wanted road test this product before I reviewed it. This is my first ipod, though I have another small/featureless mp3 player for running. I am not a big fan of Apple products in general - but this is another story. The IPT is amazing. I am surprised at how much I use it. I don't have a car adapter, so my use is typically not when I'm driving. I use it 75% of the time for music and 25% for the other applications. I would recommend looking at the app reviews before adding them on your IPT (I have found the apps with negative reviews really are not worth adding). I have not figured out how to delete apps, I'm sure it's possible, but I haven't gotten 'round to researching it!
Two things I would love to see added: bluetooth -it's just handy- (edited later: someone commented that blue tooth should be available this summer as a software upgrade - so keep that in mind) and a built in camera (like the iphones offer). This brings me to another point, I debated about an ipod vs iphone. I simply did not find the iphone as comfortable to talk with as my current cell phone - that's just me- though I think all of the capabilities of the iphone are amazing.
One funny problem that I have -- I am now so used to the touch screen- that my brain thinks everything ought to be a touch screen - like my Kindle, phone and sometimes I go to touch my computer screen for IPT style capabilities. Creature of habit!
I got the 32gig version because it was not that much more than the 16gig, and I had no idea how much room the apps or movies would take up. (as it turns out, I have not downloaded any movies- may do so for future travel, though). If you plan to keep your IPT for a long time (I don't upgrade with every new version), I would suggest the 32gig -- if you upgrade your tech with each new revision, the 16gig would most likely be fine.
The iPod Touch is clearly the iPhone's little brother. Like most Apple products, the Touch shows the love of loyal designers, hardware engineers, and usability experts. The iPod Touch measures a slim 4.3 inches by 2.4 inches by 0.31 inch, with an all-metal-and-glass design that feels as expensive as it looks. On the front all you see is a single button and that revolutionary touch screen interface surrounded by black trim. It is hands down the most uncluttered and simple … more
Leave it to Apple to come up with another beautiful, sleek ipod. This has to be the nicest one yet. My old ipod is a second or third generation classic type, so this is a big step forward. I can't believe how thin and light it is. It seems many generations ahead of my old one (Which is still in remarkable shape) The thing I like best about this ipod is the touch screen and how responsive it is. Being able to zoom in on web pages with just a tap is a great feature as is being able to rotate the screen … more
There are many reviews out on the web for the IPOD Touch but still I know there are people out there that are wondering if this darn thing is "for them". Let me give you My Mom POV. First off, the Ipod Touch is remarkably small so it's no problem to tote around. It fits in a small purse or belly-bag; even your jean's or sweatpant's pocket. The Touch came with everything I needed with two exceptions which I'm going … more
