Apple iPod touch review

CES report

Posted by: Dennis Hissink

Many current music players are capable of doing a lot more than just playing music. And the latest Apple iPod touch is not an exception. It is a full media player equipped with innovative functions such as Internet, WiFi and an option to play YouTube videos for example. The Apple iPod touch came in a surprisingly compact box; only inches larger than the iPod touch itself. The iPod touch comes with a fully loaded battery, so it is not necessary to charge the battery before using the iPod touch. Even the date and time were set correctly on the iPod touch we received. Enough reasons for our partners at LetsGoMobile to test the iPod touch and offer you an extensive review.

Apple iPod touch 16GB
The iPod touch has only one dedicated button at its disposal, just as the iPhone, with one function to return to the main menu or in case screen deactivation is on, to activate the screen of the Apple iPod in combination with a sliding movement on the touch screen. The touch screen works flawless and fast. The main menu shows eleven icons, four of which are displayed for playing music, videos, pictures and iTunes. The remaining seven icons are for the Safari web browser, YouTube videos, agenda, contacts, clock, calculator and general settings. Furthermore the battery indicator is shown on the screen in the main menu. The time is rendered in every menu, in other words, it is always visible.

iPod touch Pictures
Unfortunately the iPod touch has not been equipped with a digital camera. It is possible however to synchronize the photos from your computer with the iPod touch through iTunes. Once the pictures are on your iPod you can watch them by touching the Pictures icon in the main menu on the iPod screen. Clicking on a picture will make it appear in a medium size in the centre of the screen. And also here, just as is the case when playing music, the picture is automatically rotated when turning your iPod into a different direction. If you turn the iPod one quarter, the picture will be rendered on full screen. The icon that tells you the number of the picture and a second one that lets you go on to the next or previous picture are still visible and available.

When the touch screen is touched once again on a spot clear from icons, the photo will be rendered fully. Instead of having to use the icons to go to the next or previous picture you can slide your finger to the left or the right on the touch screen and the next or previous picture will appear. An additional amazing function on the iPod touch is zooming in on pictures. Not so much amazing that this function is offered but more so because of the way it is carried out. You have to place your fingers on the exact spot you want to zoom in on and then move them apart. After that you can move to the right or the left sliding on the screen. If you want to go back to full screen and undo the zooming, it is simple; just double-click on the touch screen. Continue to read the full iPod touch review at LetsGoMobile.
