Firstly, I must point out I have not purchased an Apple iPod nor would I want one.
I bought the first Apple iPod nano several years ago....most of the time it lays idle, not much use for it.
The most irritating thing about iPod is having to use iTunes. iTunes itself is a shambles. It has no compatability with WMP and accordingly my favourite music or playlists are never transferred in their entirity to iTunes.
WMP does not recognize the iPod Nano as a device so it is impossible to drag and drop to the device.
Today for example I recharged the iPod....took very very long time....and Synced music and photos to the device.
I was unable to 'add' more music or photos...I had to delete the entire library of music and all photo albums and then replace with new ones!!Why??
It took several hours to achieve this.
Very slow device. Stupid system of downloading.
Maybe the 3rd generation is a more complete and user friendly device...not so if it is dependent on iTunes!!
Would I buy one....certainly not...I give it Poor Rating.
I hope this information is helpful to you.
broke after 3 weeks, screen stays almost blank. very upset, what a waste of money.
also the ipod is worse than most mp3 players for the amount of tags required for albums to play as albums as whole albums, i also have a creative 16gb which is a pleasure to use compared to the ipod and is far less fussy.
i did like the touch screen useabitiy.
DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON A FASHIONABLE IPOD, PAY FOR THE NAME, THE PRODUCT IS LAME.
if an mp3 player came out without the need for tags which worked on file name only and used drag n drop software it would be brilliant.
Bought one of these second hand. I have seen them in action before and was very impressed. The one I bought had a problem with the docking socket which was obviously faulty but described as good. To repair this part of the ipod is £54 or thereabouts, making it almost the price of a new one. Buyer beware!!!!!It still does not work correctly and does not charge unless you wiggle the connector (yes I did buy a new charger and usb lead) Again, be careful with these things.
The iPod touch is a nice looking product and packed with features, but that's as far as it goes. The sound quality is poor and doesn't compare to a lot of other players, the battery life is not that great, the fact that it is locked to iTunes is appalling. Basically this is just an over advertised product and is bought just because someone else has one, perfect example of style over substance.
the i pod touch is not the best product that i have bought dose not keep charge and dose not get games and apps the kids nowadays play would not recomend it to anyone the 4th gen altot better
Me and my friend saw theese and thought we should by one so we bought one we thought we were buying an ipod touch but it was a ticket u need to make it more clearrer on ur page but its really good that all the money goes to charity but its bad that we only bought tickets and not an actual ipod touch so sorry but this is why i gave u a low mark.
the seller didnt include that the ipod it very prone to stop working. the screen became non responsive at completely random times. the power if your lucky will last about 4-5 hours, thats if you not using it. it also didnt include the os4 so i had to download that myself and apply it
this item was not very good at all battery life was poor and everything else on the ipod was not good at all i would say if this item was not jailbreak this item would be ok but with a jailbreak you can not download anything at
i thought this would have been good. but i did not recieve it in the post. i am very sad. :( i wish this comes in the post as i was loookinf foward to getting it. if the person who was selling this would please email me and let me knew wat wen wrong. i would apprishate this very much. thanks
THIS GUY IS A FRAUD. i TRIED BUYING AN IPOD FROM HIM AND IT DIRECTS ME TO AMAZON AND WHEN I RECEIEVED IT TODAY IT WAS USED AND SCRATCHED AND IT DID NOT EVEN SWITCH ON!! LIAR AND A FRAUD! BEWARE!
