About iPod Touch

The iPod Touch is closer to an iPhone than a garden-variety MP3 player and doesn't have the hassle and expense of a cellphone contract. The iPod Touch, after several generations, is now powered by iOS and runs myriad applications from the App Store. The iPod Touch is operated by the same swipe and tap actions that originated with the iPhone. The rotary wheel controls of the classic iPods are not a part of this sleek device. The iPod Touch features a reversible camera to capture any of life's moments or to take a great selfie. Video chat with friends and family with Apple's FaceTime, and use iMessage to text with people who have compatible Apple devices. Connectivity on the iPod Touch is through Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, so any apps that you would normally operate in a car, such as Apple Maps, will only work where those connections are available. The beautiful, sharp retina display of the screen is hard to resist, highlighting your photos, video and other media. Some apps that operate on the iPod Touch include Facebook, Twitter, Skype and iTunes. You have the world of entertainment at your tapping fingertips with iHeartRadio, YouTube, Netflix, and Vevo. The iPod Touch works with iCloud, which stores content such as apps, movies, and music in the cloud that you can access from other compatible devices such as iPhones, iPads, and Mac and PC computers. The features and capabilities depend on the generation of your iPod Touch. Because technology advances so quickly and frequently, it's a good idea to confirm which apps and functions are compatible with your device. The robust little iPod Touch is a great way to enjoy many of the features of an iPhone for a budget-friendly price. Capture a signal and dive right in.
