"It has gone beyond a music player"4.0 starson by GSOgymrat
Pros: LOTS of features, good sound, responsive screen, intuitive interface, Wifi works well, 64 GB is decent storage size, apps from the useful to the absurd
Cons: ITunes, can get cluttered with apps, expensive
Summary: My 64 GB iPod Touch is my first Apple product. I considered the iPod Classic because of the 160 GB but thought a hard drive might not last as long, especially when riding a bike off pavement. The Touch is large for a music player but not cumbersome. The screen is responsive, detailed and generally well organized. The sound quality on the player is good, the included earphones are average and I upgraded to the Klipsch S4i which have the remote. The voice control feature is a great idea but I find it only works correctly about 50% of the time. Built in microphone is useful. I love the Genius feature. The screen is great for photos and short videos, although I wouldn't choose to watch a movie on a screen this size. The Wifi works well and it is useful for checking email, weather, headlines, etc but I find the keys on the internet browser tedious and the screen too small for reading long articles or a lot of surfing. Of course the major distinction of the Touch are the apps. I don't play games or use apps very often but it is nice to know if I want to I can. I bought the sensor for the Nike Fit and I'm looking forward to trying it out. The biggest problem I have with the Touch isn't the device it is iTunes. The program is slow and the proprietary format makes it difficult to play songs with my other equipment. The iTunes store is cluttered and frankly just ugly compared with other Apple applications I have seen. iTunes doesn't always recognize when I have added new music that I didn't buy on iTunes, it changes my genre categories and doesn't always display album artwork. Everything considered my Touch is a very good, though not my favorite music player (mainly because of iTunes), but as a multifunction device it is in a class of its own.
