Overview

The iPod touch is a unique device in many ways. The most significant example of this is its Multi-touch interface that enables users to easily control the device and type with their fingers. It also includes sensors that automatically re-orient the screen display to match the orientation of the iPod touch, such as switching to landscape view when the user rotates the phone 90 degrees when watching video. All iPod touch models include the applications Music, Videos, Photos, iTunes (providing access to the Wi-Fi Music Store), Safari, YouTube, Calendar, Contacts, Clock, Calculator, and Settings. Later models added Mail, Maps, Stocks, Notes, and Weather, which could also be added to the earlier models with the purchase of the iPhone 2.0 software upgrade for the iPod touch. My iPod touch, 3/e will include necessary coverage of iTunes to enable readers to manage the content on their iPod as well as purchase applications and customizing settings. In addition, readers will learn how to use every feature of their iPod touch and receive expert advice on topics like customizing, peer to peer connectivity, running apps, using peripheral devices and more. This book will be fully updated for the latest iPod touch release.

Every question you may have about iPod Touch is in this book. It is well organized and walks you through every step by number 1, 2, 3, etc. Easy to follow with appropriate pictures of what you should see. I use and enjoy manuals. Just reading this book in various chapters will cause you to pick up information you have't discovered. The red shaded areas tell you what you can't do. Make it your iPod Touch companion.

This book has it all. Color pictures with numbers that go with each step to point at what you need to do. Clear explanations and LOTS of things are covered. I haven't found anything yet that isn't answered by this book.

Wonderful step by step instructions walking you through set up and customization as well as real life visuals of what the iPod looks like as you go through the various steps. Combining both the step by step text and visuals is super user friendly. Also, in the book he says you can find extra help in various places like Apple Support, iPod community forums, and himself! He gives you an e-mail to contact him and he responds! Very helpful and awesome!
