So Apple have brought a new player to the game of technological advancement. But does it do its job? Yes, is the simple answer. It has transformed and improved the game at any rate.
Before acquiring my Ipod touch I had a standard MP3 player, with boring old buttons and limited memory. Then Apple introduced me to the wonderful Ipod touch. I received it for my birthday a while ago and have been pleased with it since, as it allows me to listen to music and rent videos and whatnot.
The Touch only has two real buttons on the outside; one to lock it and the other is a type of 'back' button I guess. The whole point of the Touch is to, well, touch. The screen is very sensitive to your touches, so there's no need for using a lot of force to work it. Its very simple to navigate in this way, and fun, with simple swipes and prods allowing you to select your music in style. Its also easy to use, so even people not use to technology will find it easy to use. The headphones provided with the Ipod are also fairly good, and lasted me a while, so no complaints there.
The amount of things the Touch can do is fantastic. Obviously, you could only use it as a music player, but then you would be depriving yourself of a whole lot of enjoyment. The Touch can play music, videos and can even be your alarm if needed. There's a whole range of uses for the Ipod, which come in the form of Apps. Apps are downloaded off the Itunes, either on your computer or even on the Ipod, and there are thousands of them. They provide an easy way to download and play games, using the touch interface(new and innovative ways to play), or you can download apps to help you learn, like Spanish Language learning ones. There's a whole world of apps out there, but they're waiting for you to find them. However, you do have to pay for some apps, but they don't cost much. Each app is also reviewed my customers on Itunes, so you can read through them before buying a certain app.
If you're considering buying it, then go for it. If you don't feel like splashing out for a 32gb one then get a cheaper one which has less memory. However, if you have a large music library, and may be interested in watching films on your Ipod then go for this one.
The Ipod touch has changed the face of listening to music throughout the world. It has made listening to music on the go fun and enjoyable, but you're also able to carry around your whole music library in your pocket. Fascinating.
