Advantages: too many to list = see above
Disadvantages: none that i can think of
So last year, my husband who loves his gadets and gizmos suggested getting me an ipod for my birthday... at the time i thought why would i need one of these as i already had an mp3 player, but he was so excited and i couldnt think of anthing else i wanted so i went along with it... now i can see what all the craze was about.. i would not be without it!!!!
I got the 32gb ipod touch, which fits nicely into the palm of my hand, my particular item was black, with a silver back with the apple logo in the centre, i purchased an addittional cover to stop the product from getting scratched, which in itself was pricey at £20, after my husband spent £220 on the product itself, it would have been nice for this to have been included.
Anyway it comes with a two way camera, the quality isnt brilliant, being only 5mgpixels but it does the job, and facetime works perfectly well with it. You can video also, with a good picture quality. The camera is initself a handy feature as it means when im walking the dogs i can listen to my music and take pics of them without having to take the camera with me. You can purchse addittional applications for editting orvuploading photos to social networking sites. This make these laborious processes much easire and are well worth the small amount of money.
In general the apps themselves vary in price, but i have been more than contented with the ones at the bottom end, many are free and at special times of the year they do coutdown days with free apps (they have one now for valentines day). The app store is easy to navigate through and the process of installing is easy once you have set up your apple id . I wont go into each app separatly as they all deserve thier own reviews.
The screen is of high resolution, about 9.5cm by 4.5cm with lcd display which makes watching videos/ iplayer etc a good viewing pleasure, pictures are sharp and the sound is of good quality. The interface is very user friendly and you can arrange your faviroute apps so you can have them on your first screen.
The 32mgb is more than ample to store everything i need i currently have 1214 songs, a series of house and i still havent reached capacity... so plenty of room!!! You can of course connected to itunes and download directly from there, the ipod comes with a pair of white earphones, sleek in design and the sound quality is superb! I personally have experienced itunes crashing and have had to re-download some items but im a bit computer illiterate so am unsure if this was my fault or the site itself.
The ipod comes with wi-fi and bluetooth and you can therefore connect wherever you can access this. My husband has a stereo in his car with bluetooth which means that we can connect my music all 1214 songs of it on long journeys ( he is not always so impressed as it means i get to be DJ).
The charge i think lasts a good amount of time, I charge it every couple of days but im not a big gamer, and i would imagine that this would run it down somewhat if i was.
All in all an amazing piece of equipment that im glad to own - thanks hubby
Summary: you will not regret buying
