The iTouch, coming in three different generations, can hold either 8 gigs or 32 gigs, depending on which you choose. Able to hold music, media, videos, photos, and applications, the storage space can fill up rapidly based on how much you intend to put on it.
The iTouch has a sleek build and easily slips from the hand as it is smooth to the touch and delicate looking. That is why it is important to get an iTouch case that can come in rubber, plastic, or candy shell covers that protect the delicate back from scratches and dents if it falls from your hand. The screen, as it is exposed frequently to much touching and finger oils, will benefit from a screen protector of sorts or at least will need to be wiped regularly with a soft cloth.
When you turn on the iTouch you will be able to connect it to your laptop with a USB port device and then charge it. Also, connect to your iTunes and create an account that will allow you to begin installing apps to your iTouch. The main screen is very easy to use for anyone, even if you have never used touch screen technologies before. All of the icons are easy to understand and have clearly marked labels so that you can navigate your way fairly easily. There are options for the Internet, for your persona mail box, the calendar, your contacts address book, YouTube, maps, the weather, notes, a clock, calculator, and general settings. At the bottom, there is a row of other icons, such as photos, music, videos, and the app store.
You can store all of your music and photos on the iTouch and they will be organized in a very easy to find manner. The music is categorized either by play list, or artist, or album, or genre and your iTouch has a home screen that you can use to search for any material on your iTouch to find it faster and easier. Going to the app store, you can add plenty of things to your iTouch. Many of the apps cost a few dollars, but so many more are free. Choose to add Facebook or Twitter to your iTouch for free and then log in and make posts right from your iTouch wherever you can connect to Internet. Or, check your mail easily from your iTouch and reply rapidly right from the easy to use touch screen keypad.
You can add games and text applications to your iTouch to further your ability to communicate with others and you can enjoy playing exciting games like Scrabble or Toss the Paper into the Basket or Clue for little or no costs. Watching your favorite videos is easy on the iTouch as well, though it doesn’t support all flash players and has somewhat of a limited capability of things you can view and do on the Internet.
You will get pop notifications each time that you get a new email message or text or Facebook alert and you can easily click on it to view whatever new notification that you received. It’s easy to store your files or to read up on the latest news with the iTouch, as it is a new way to listen to music and enjoy multimedia.
