The iPod Nano I bought is a really stylish model which really doesn't mean all that much to me, as long as it plays music I am happy and wasn't really bothered about a particular type. It is a small thin gadget which is approximately 4 inches long so its definately not an intrusive size and can be carried easily. On the front of the iPod there is a rectangular screen which takes up around half of the front. Underneath the screen you will find the function button which is a circular button which is used to work the iPod. The outer circle of the button has the menu, skip and play/pause so it covers everything you need. The play/pause button is also the on/off switch. The middle of the circle is like an "enter" button which you can press when choosing options in the menu. The iPod is really lightweight and it almost feels as though you are carrying nothing!
When turning on the iPod you are taken straight to the menu which gives you various options:
Music: When clicking on the music option you will see a list of further options such as playlists, artists, songs and genres. This means you can easily scroll through the Ipod for a particular song or artist. I often search for certain artists and then I can just listen to their songs all together.
Videos: I have never personally used this function but you can download tv or movies to the Ipod and watch them when you are on the go. It doesn't interest me to do this as I think it would drive me batty watching something on such a tiny screen.
Photo's: Using Itunes you can put photo's onto your iPod if you so wish, I haven't done this either!
Podcasts: You can download or save podcasts with this function.
Extras: Under this function in the menu you can find an alarm clock, calendar, clock, contacts, games, notes, screen lock and stopwatch should you need to use any. I personally don't use any of them as I tend to use my mobile for all of them.
Settings: Shuffle, repeat, playback, date and time and language are all in this function for you to set up your Ipod.
Shuffle songs: Literally shuffles all the songs on the iPod. I use this function every time I use the Ipod as I like a real mix of songs
At the top of the iPod you will find a small button which locks it so when it isn't in use you can lock it to prevent it from being switched on when in your bag or pocket and draining the battery which has happened to me on numerous occasions - I now always lock it!
Using the iPod for the first time requires access to iTunes so you can download all the music from your computer.
I never really bothered with an MP3 player or iPod as I don't usually walk anywhere alone so didn't see much point in buying one but once my daughter started nursery I thought it would be nice to have something for the walk home. My brother gave me his old iPod but it was really on its last legs but I did like it so I was on the lookout for a new one. My friends told me that her sister was selling an iPod Nano for £30 so I snapped it up straightaway!
