Carol

There are several good accessible apps for listening to the radio on the iPod Touch using a WIFI connection. OoTunes and Tune In Radio.

I meant, listening to radio. I was mistaken in thinking that you couldn't browse using the Ipod Touch.

Got it now.

Hi Carol.

Use it on the net for listening?  Please explain.  You
can browse the internet just as you can with the IPhone,
access online services such as online radio, YouTube etc
in exactly the same way as the IPhone, it just doesn't
have a gps receiver or phone functions.
All the best, Ibrahim.

So, if I understand correctly, it doesn't have a phone
at all (which I didn't expect) and you can use it on the
net for listening but that's all. Maybe the last is not
quite correct so please correct me if my understanding
is not quite right.
Thanks.

Hi Carol.

The only things that don't work so well on the touch are
GPS applications as the touch doesn't have a built in
gps receiver or compass, nor do any applications that
rely on phone functions to work.  Everything else
should work fine though, though remember that you can
only use WiFi on the touch to get online.
All the best, Ibrahim.

Jackie,

I never realised you could do so much with the Ipod
Touch.  I hadn't thought about it going online, though
I should, knowing that Apples stuff works with ITunes,
and I certainly hadn't thought about it being able to run
these other apps.
Very interesting, for sure!

So, does anyone know if all apps work across the board
on their equipment? Just interested in how things
work. ... --

My Apple keyboard arrived yesterday, and pairing it
with my iPod Touch was extremely straightforward.  So I
decided to visit the App Store and, for 59p each, I
bought four applications that work with VoiceOver. They are the World Fact Book 2011, a dictionary and
thesaurus, Tune In Radio and, probably my favourite,
Birds of Britain.  The latter is an amazing little
program if you love bird sound and details.  Not only
can you play the song, but you can listen to VoiceOver
provide a description of their size, colour, family,
time of year etc.  There is also a favourites button
to use where you can add a library of your favourite
birds to it.
Tune In Radio is great.  Similarly, there is a
bookmark facility where you can make a list of the stations you
wish to add.  Because I love tennis, and the
Australian Open is on at the moment, I have great difficulty
getting it on DAB as we have such a diabolical signal
in these parts.  So when I tuned in using the Sonata
at 8.00 this morning, a message said that restricted
rights prevented coverage.  I find this often happens
at weekends when football matches are in progress
too. So I tuned my iPod to Sports Extra and, low and
behold, got the tennis on live.

All the above apps work with VoiceOver.  I don't use
my keyboard for everything, mainly when I get into tricky
areas that need a bit of typing. Mostly, I use my
fingers and have got used to doing so now.

Just thought I'd pass on the info.

Kind Regards,

Jackie Cairns
