The new Apple iPod touch is already in the second generation and the second generation is even better then the first generation. What is so great about the iPod touch though and what makes it so different from the old iPod? There is plenty that makes this different than the iPod. I myself was not interested in an iPod touch at first because I thought all it did was allow you to use a touch screen which was nice but not worth the extra price, but I found out that it can do a lot more.
First lets look at one of the most important features the music. With iPod touch, the music is vibrant both with the audio and the visuals. You can touch your music and interact with it . Do you remember the time when you could walk your fingers on your CD or your records? Cover Flow lets you relive that feeling. Simply switch your iPod touch and browse your music to find the album you want to hear. Touch the cover for the back and view the track list. Touch the screen again to play. You can even display the lyrics of the song you’re listening to.
You hear a song you love and you want to listen to other songs in the same spirit. The new Genius feature finds in your list of songs others that go well together for you and creates a play list for you. You can listen immediately, save or even update your new list if you like it. Genius creates mixes that you never thought of before or if you are too lazy it saves you a lot of time this feature should be added to all iPods.
You can also play games. New games are added all the time. With the popularity of the Apple iPod touch there are going to be plenty of games that are sure to come out for the Apple iPod touch. Some of these games are almost worth buying the iPod touch just for the games like a Rockband clone if you bought the similar Rockband DS it would cost at least $50 so that game alone helps to take off $50 from the final price of your iPod touch.
The Internet is easy to use on the iPod touch. With wi-fi you can get online anywhere there is wi-fi and if you are in a big city that should be most places. This is a great feature of the Apple iPod touch. If you are lost you can look for directions, you can check your e-mail, get some songs, etc. The browser is also great. Many browsers for phones and similar small devices don’t have a good Internet browser but apple has been the leader in improving the technology to allow for better online browsing and you can see that in the Apple iPod touch.
This gives you just a small glimpse of what is available with the Apple iPod touch. Unlike many new technologies that are not quiet done and have some bugs the second generation Apple iPod touch seems to have the few bugs the first generation had fixed and even the first generation iPod touch had few problems. If this is something you want you will easily be able to find some excuse for spending the money, like you use it for a gps, you use it for work, etc. With so many things that it can do you will have no trouble finding a reason you should get it. The only bad thing is that you cannot upgrade a 8gb yourself; I think the 16gb are too much money and you realistically you could add in memory yourself but they make it so you can’t.
