Not Just for Kids
Posted by: JAGordon from: on
I have a prepay flip phone that costs me just $100 a year, so I don't need an expensive iPhone contract. With wi-fi I can get everything I need with this iPod: email, weather, stocks, maps, etc. plus camera, music, games. The bluetooth connection makes it nice for playing music in our new (Corolla) car on long trips. It was also easy to transfer everything from my old iPod to this one. Get the Otter Box to protect it.

great device thus far
Posted by: bliz12 from: on
I wasn't aware that I would have to install a new operating system on my MacBook in order to run the very latest versions of iTunes and Photos. Definitely look at the specs and factor this in when deciding whether to get the iPod touch 6 or an earlier generation. Apple gives has the latest OS, El Capitan, available as a free download. I'm finding it rather glitchy and don't like it as much, but I had to update in order to use the iPod with my computer. I
I got the iPod touch because I wanted the features of an iPhone, but want to keep my phone separate and simple. So far I'm very happy with the device. It runs fast and the layout is pretty intuitive, even for someone who doesn't have a smartphone.The camera is very nice. I don't love the Apple headphones that came with it because they don't cancel out noise; I can't use them on the train because I can't hear anything.

Great, if you can't find a new iPod Classic
Posted by: Upstater from: on
This is Apple's latest version of a device for playing music and podcasts, replacing the discontinued iPod Classic. It has everything offered by an iPhone except the ability to make phone calls. As such, it has way too much for the lovers of the simplicity offered by the old iPod, which was called "classic" for a reason — it was a wonderful invention for the purchase and playing of digital music. But taken on its own terms — with wifi, apps, etc. — the iPod Touch is a great device and offers some nice extras for music and podcasts (like the ability to mark the latter as "played" without connecting to iTunes). If you don't have an iPhone and are in the market for an MP3 player, I would recommend going with the Touch rather than a used Classic -- the extra cost is worth the reliability and functionality. One note: Battery life has never lived up to expectations for the Classic or Touch. If you just want the Touch for music and podcasts, you need to turn off several functions in settings to save battery life. Contact Apple for details. Also, you need to download an app for measuring the percentage of battery life remaining. The device itself only measures what is draining the battery.

IPOD Touch to replace other IPOD touch
Posted by: vbjb from: on
Although the overall functionality of the IPOD touch does a good job in providing music, podcasts, and Howl.fm app content, I can not give it a full 5 stars simply because historically, (as with many tech products), I have had to replace it over time. This purchase is our 4th Ipod touch in the last 8 years or so. Is it to be expected that technology is going to have to be replaced as newer versions come out? Sure it is. However, the frequency with which those replacements have been required for me makes the IPOD touch a good product, not a great one. Is this a fair way to review this current Ipod touch purchase? Perhaps not, but I have already seen some issues with battery usage being inconsistent and some minor Aux connection issues when hooking it up in my vehicle just as I have had in the past so I have to take the previous precedents into consideration. However, it is still a good product or I wouldn't continue to purchase new ones, but just know that it does have a limited potential shelf life.

Loaded with features
Posted by: Disco from: on
Learning curve somewhat extensive, inconvenient to locate information on specific actions desired. Far more features than I will ever use. I bought the unit as a replacement for a "Walkman" I have had for years and finally died. I use it almost exclusively to listen to audiobooks when walking, driving or exercising, thus most of the features are not important to me and will in all likelihood not be used. Once the somewhat complex method of moving audiobooks to the unit is understood (much simpler operation on the Walkman) and the multiple steps followed, the performance is good.

It is a music player
Posted by: twow from: Augusta, GA on
Bought this for my daughter so she can listen to her music on road trips. The only reason we got this is because I made a mistake and got a lot of music on itunes. Now we are pretty much stuck with using it. The player works great, has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. It might be because I avoid itunes and but finding downloaded music was difficult. If there was another option I would of purchased it. I had a zune before and was a better interface. If my daughter was old enough for a phone she would be using that and google music. I also have an ipod mini but no longer use it and use my phone only. I would not recommend this to new users that can use a phone instead

Great player for music lovers!
Posted by: Angela777 from: on
Me and my son use ours everyday! I bought him one for Christmas and my husband who picked it up at the store bought me one for Christmas as well. I love listening to music and with Ipod's free Pandora feature I have unlimited music available to me all day. We both love the camera and video features as well as the games it has to offer. It is a computer, game center, camera, and music player all in one. It is also surprisingly durable as I watch little kids who love to grab it and drop it :) I would recommend to anyone, I have an older Ipod but this one is great! And with the I Message feature I am able to chat with friends without the need of my cell phone which is great too :) As well as the Facetime feature which allows me to keep in touch with friends from out of state. If you are looking for an affordable go to this is your device :)
