Ipod Touch and it’s many uses

I cannot live without my Ipod Touch!

Listening to music is the greatest, but I use mine for much, much more!

I listen to audio books when I am getting ready for work in the morning, at lunch, in the evening between tv commercials, etc! I check my emails, weather, news, and of course my music! When traveling to my doctor appointment 1 1/2 hours away, whichever audio book I am listening to at the time makes the trip go by in a flash!

The note feature is my best friend. I jot down everything I need the next time I have to go to the store and I never forget what I need! I have all sorts of lists: questions to ask my doctor, books I want to read and everything else.

If I am at home sick, I can easily check email, the news or anything without having to get up, launch my laptop and wait for it to boot up. As I mentioned earlier, audio books are fantastic when you aren’t feeling well as you do not have to sit up, hold a book and it helps to distract you: I just lay down with it near me and listen! No more sore back or tired hands.

Stores like Walmart, Target and other similar stores sell little speakers for $10.00 that you just plug into if you don’t want to use the outside speaker or headphones. They are also quiet enough to use at work so you don’t disturb other people or when you are on the phone.

If I am in a store and see something that gives me an idea, I just take a quick snapshot of it. When we went looking at furniture, I took quick shots of the sofas we liked for later reference.

The games and apps are also fun for time while waiting for an appointment, when someone you are meeting are late, there is never a dull or boring moment while waiting.

The Ipod Touch has internet capabilities, so why spend more on a cell phone to get internet when you already have it on your Ipod? The only difference is that on the Ipod touch, you won’t have wireless internet everywhere, but more and more places are offering free wireless, so for me it isn’t a problem.

Do you have an Ipod Touch?  What is the feature you use most?
