Maximize your iPod/MP3

Music and a whole lot more. Movies, Wi-Fi capability, photos — select iPod models and other MP3 players come with extra functions and features.

Apps: How to download and manage

If you have an iPod touch, you can shop the iTunes App Store in a number of ways. Tap Featured to get a list of new apps and to see what's popular. Browse by category. Check out the Top 25 apps. Or, if you know exactly what you're looking for, use a quick search.

When you find an app you want, buy and download it wirelessly to your iPod touch from anywhere over a Wi-Fi network, and start using it right away. Plus, your iPod touch tells you whenever an app update is available, so you'll have the latest and greatest versions of your favorite apps.

Text with iPod touch

Two-way texting is possible on your iPod touch. There are a few text messaging apps which send and receive text messages over a Wi-Fi connection. Find and download the app you want and start texting.

Video Calling through Facetime

Video calling is in full effect on the latest iPod touch. You can show your friends what you're up to, when you're up to it.

To start a video call with your friend over Wi-Fi, just tap the FaceTime app and find your friend's entry to start the call. An invitation pops up on the screen asking if your friend wants to join you. When your friend accepts, FaceTime begins. It works in both portrait and landscape.

Internet Radio

Listen to music from stations across the country, and all over the world, with radio apps for your iPod touch. Choose from several different apps. Plus, the Pandora app allows you to create your own stations with the music you like.


With tens of thousands of games and other applications in almost every category just a tap away at the app store, iPod touch has games for every gamer.

Start Your Car

Lock, unlock, and even start your car from virtually anywhere with select apps for iPod touch. When you are connected to a Wi-Fi network, you can control some of your car's functions remotely with one of these apps.


The iTunes Store features a library of the best-selling audiobooks. Choose from thousands of titles. Download and listen on your iPod touch. Audiobooks remember where you left off listening, so you can start one on your couch and continue it on your commute.
