iPod Touch 4 Features Some Tips and Tricks

The iPod touch has revolutionized the world of hand held devices. With its ability to play music, stream video, take phenomenal pictures and HD video, games, and enjoy face time, there isn’t much the iPod Touch 4 can’t do. Here are some tips on how to get the most from your iPod Touch and some tricks we can’t even believe Apple thought of.

Let’s break it down and explore some of the amazing features of the iPod touch, and see what’s new. Face time – what is it, and why do we need it? Face time is just that, video calling where you can see each others face. We might not actually need it, but it sure is cool.

Air Play is there for you to wirelessly stream the content on your iPod Touch 4 to your tv, via Apple TV. Here’s a tip: you can also stream your music through your tv, for that big theatre sound. And speaking of music, the iPod Touch 4 is the first iPod that gives you direct access to ITunes, meaning you can download music and other content directly to your iPod wirelessly.

iOS steals the show. It’s the operating system that runs your iPod Touch 4 and lets you see and do everything on your screen with the touch of your finger. IOS 5 has loads of new features, 200 of them as a matter of fact. One fantastic new feature on the iPod Touch 4, with iOS 5, is the ease of access to your notification center. Easily pull down the center at any time no matter what you’re doing and see who’s called, mailed, or left you a message. There is a new reminders app as well, so you never forget those important items, and it has a locations feature as well that can remind you to do something based on where you are. Twitter is now built right in for all your tweeting needs. One of the neatest features is the split keyboard. With the touch of a finger, split your keyboard in two, to make it easier to type and text.

The iPod Touch 4 has loads of new features, more for you to love! It now comes in white as well as black, has a lower price point, and with the introduction of IOS 5, gives you more bang for your buck. There has never been a better time to buy the iPod Touch 4, and with the 8GB model starting at just $199, the news is all good.

3G for iPod Touch Review

Technology moved on and time came when iPod Touch can not only be music listening device and connect to “Wifi” but also have 3G! Introducing to you 3G for iPod Touch by Virgin Mobile!


At fist I was bit skeptical about whole 3G for iPod Touch and on top of that, why would I need 3G for iPod Touch when I have smartphone or iPad for that?

Nice thing about the 3G for iPod Touch is not only connection but also something you can take on the road and have wifi turned on all the time. While many carriers charge $30+ for data plan with Virgin Mobile I got it for $20 and what I like most about it? NO FREAKING CONTRACT! :)

Anyway, if you are in USA and want 3G for your iPod Touch you can either go to Virgin Mobile



What do you think about the 3G for iPod Touch? Do you see your self using it?

iPod Touch 4 Fans I got Cool App For Ya

Recently I started more and more connecting with iPhone iPad and iPod Touch developers and it kind of paid it self off because those developers do provide me with free redeem codes which means I get to try out apps that cost 99c and up for free. So today I wanted to share some of those codes with you.

Originally I wrote that article on one of the best Technology News blogs but here I go again.
PushMail app is cool, am not saying that because I got redeem codes, but because I use it constantly on my iPad 2 (Wifi) and on my iPod Touch 4 , and reason I use it on those devices is because I am not on Mac all the time.

What is PushMail?
Pushmail basically is a forwarding email service that notifies you of your emails INSTANTLY and when I say Instantly I mean blazing fast! I tested it on numerous occasions and I got email notification within 1 second upon arrival in my mailbox. Basically you forward your email to this address they give you, and once email arrives into that inbox you get notified instantly. Best part about it is that you can setup multiple email addresses and color them. Yes you are able to view and respond to that email right from the screen.

For more details how you can win this app for free, please visit MWD now where I originally wrote about this app , and let me know what you think. I think I have 7 codes left, which means 7 lucky winners!

iPod Touch Wi-Fi Grayed Out or No Wi-Fi

Just came along few same questions in my email regarding iPod touch Wi-Fi Grayed out bar or No Wi-Fi (Wireless) at all. Well I do feel your pain, because it happened to mine not too long ago. After 5 minutes of research I found this to be helpful, at least in my situation was

  1. Go To Settings
  2. Click on Safari
  3. Go bit down and click Clear Cache, Clear Cookies, Clear History
  4. Hold the Top (sleep/awake) button until you get red bar to swipe it
  5. Swipe the red bar to the left (iPod Touch should now turn off)
  6. Then Hold the Top (Sleep/Awake) button until you see Apple logo
  7. Wait until front screen displays
  8. See if that fixed it.

In most cases, this will do the trick. Another suggestion for you I have is to, reset the iPod Touch you can do it many ways, one way is to do it from the Settings and another one is via iTunes.

Hope this helps, do let me know in commenting section below.

How to get (Wi-Fi) Internet on iPod Touch Everywhere

Well I know some of you are mad because iPod Touch does not have 3G network. You can actually get internet on iPod Touch everywhere you go with small gizmo called MiFi. MiFi can be obtained at Verizon or Virgin Mobile, I would prefer Virgin Mobile because they are A LOT cheaper.

How do you get internet on iPod Touch?
Sign up with Virgin Mobile, wait until you get MiFi and all you really have to do is turn it on and viola you are on internet everywhere you go!

Plans are not that expensive:
$10  gets you 100MB and it's valid for 10 days
$40 is unlimited data for 1 month!

MiFi is basically a 3G network that gets converted to Wi-Fi. What I like about MiFi is that you can hook up 5 devices to it and its pretty fast too.

iPod Touch Gets iOS 4.2

Hey dear iPod Touch fans! Today is a big day for you! iOS 4.2 is now availiable for iPod Touch here is the Apple press release:

CUPERTINO, California—November 22, 2010—Apple® today announced that iOS 4.2, the latest version of the world’s most advanced mobile operating system, is available today for download for iPad™, iPhone® and iPod touch®. iOS 4.2 brings over 100 new features from iOS 4.0, 4.1 and 4.2 to iPad including Multitasking, Folders, Unified Inbox, Game Center, AirPlay® and AirPrint. 

“iOS 4.2 makes the iPad a completely new product, just in time for the holiday season,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “Once again, the iPad with iOS 4.2 will define the target that other tablets will aspire to, but very few, if any, will ever be able to hit.”

iPad users can now run their favorite apps and switch between them instantly, while preserving iPad’s legendary battery life. Users can organize their apps with drag-and-drop simplicity using Folders, and Mail now features a Unified Inbox, fast inbox switching and a threaded message view.

Game Center allows iPad, iPhone and iPod touch users to challenge and play friends or be matched automatically with new opponents, showcase their scores and achievements, and discover new games their friends are playing.

AirPlay is a new feature for streaming music, video and photos wirelessly from iPad, iPhone and iPod touch to Apple TV®, transforming Apple TV into a great accessory for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. iOS users also will be able to use AirPort Express® and AirPlay to stream wirelessly to any stereo or powered speakers, or directly to AirPlay-enabled speakers coming to market in the months ahead. 

AirPrint is a next-generation Wi-Fi print architecture that dramatically simplifies printing by completely eliminating printer drivers. A selection of AirPrint enabled printers including the HP Photosmart, HP LaserJet Pro and HP Officejet will be the first to support printing direct from iOS devices. iPad, iPhone and iPod touch users can simply tap to print their documents or photos wirelessly to any printer that supports AirPrint. 

The Find My iPhone (or iPad or iPod touch) feature is now free to use without a MobileMe℠ subscription and helps you locate your missing device.* The Find My iPhone app is a free download on the App Store℠ and lets users easily locate a missing device on a map and have it display a message or play a sound. Users can even remotely lock or wipe data from a lost device to protect privacy.

Other new features that iOS 4.2 brings to the iPad include: the ability to rent TV episodes directly to iPad using the iTunes® App with a 30 day viewing window and a 48 hour session window once playback is started; the ability to easily find and highlight specific words and phrases on web pages in Safari®; enhanced enterprise support so businesses can take advantage of stronger security features, new device management capabilities and improved enterprise integration; industry-leading accessibility enhancements; and support for 25 additional languages, including Korean, Portuguese and Traditional Chinese.

The revolutionary iPad allows users to connect with their apps and content in a more intimate, intuitive and fun way than ever before. You can browse the web, read and send email, enjoy and share photos, watch HD videos, listen to music, play games, read ebooks and much more, using the innovative Multi-Touch™ user interface. iPad weighs just 1.5 pounds, making it easy to carry and use anywhere.

Today, customers have downloaded more than seven billion apps from the groundbreaking App Store and more than 300,000 apps are available to consumers in 90 countries, with more than 40,000 native iPad apps. Over 125 million iOS users around the world can choose from an incredible range of apps in 20 categories, including games, business, news, sports, health, reference and travel.

Yo Apple Where is White iPod Touch?

There is a rumor going around that White iPod Touch might hit the market soon but still it's just a rumor. Thing is that iPhone 4 users have been waiting for White design for some time now. Few sources are reporting that Apple is still designing white iPhone 4 and the main problem seems to be the white color. Same sources are reporting that Apple did not release white iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4th Generation because color of the Home Button and Front Design white color did not match.

I still like the black design more than white if you ask me but then again there is many of you that would rather have White front design than black.

If you could order iPod Touch in any color which color would that be?

How To Use FaceTime on iPod Touch 4G (4th Generation)

Now that iPod Touch 4G is out many still have issues with FaceTime. Well I wanted to write how to use Facetime on iPod Touch 4G for those that still have troubles.

Make sure you have Wi-Fi connection. If you don't have apple account you probably want to register it first, but most of you already have that so I won't go to deep into explaining how to register apple account.

Open up your Facetime (Green looking button)

Once you have Facetime up it will ask you for your apple ID which I mentioned before that you will need one. So go through that step.
Now I hope you have lots of friends with either iPhone 4 or iPod Touch 4G because you will need at least one to start FaceTime.
In contacts find your friend and hit FaceTime button. Make sure that your friend has Facetime setup already otherwise you will not be able to connect with them.

Hope that small tutorial worked out for you, its pretty simple to be honest. If you have any other issues, please do let me know below in comments. I love to help people.

New iPod Touch (4G) 4th Generations Design

According to iLounge and their source as it looks like new iPod touch 4G (4th Generation) will be changing design this time. It should have camera but it is still unclear if it’s going to have microphone or LED flash light. If you ask me I would rather go with microphone because I am sure that “without motification” I could use iPod Touch 4G with Skype or even Facetime.

I think it would be really cool if iPod Touch would step up and be almost as iPhone but without calling features. Meaning that I could use Skype on Wi-Fi talking to my family etc..

via iLounge According to a source who would have reason to know, the fourth-generation iPod touch is changing back shapes—sorry, readers who have been posting with love for the dome-like curved iPod touch 2G/3G back, but that’s going away. And it’s not going to be glass like the iPhone 4, for all of you folks who were fearing accidental shatters like the ones we’ve heard Apple Stores are continuing to see on a daily basis. The new shape is…

Familiar. Think of the top of a MacBook Pro, only smaller, which is to say flat rather than curved at the center—closer to the look of the first-generation iPod touch’s back, only with modifications. The rear camera is there, but there is still some question as to whether what’s next to it will be a LED flash like the one in the iPhone 4, or a microphone like the one next to the video camera of the iPod nano. We’ve been told to expect a microphone rather than a flash, with a continuation of the bottom-mounted headphone port and Dock Connector port.


What would be your ideal iPod Touch 4G?
