[access-uk] Re: Four apps for iPod Touch/iPhone to recommend

Jackie,

I'm getting more and more hooked. Just can't quite decide whether to go for phone or the Ipod Touch. Strangely enough, we are also looking at Bose systems right now and I'm thinking of Bose speakers for my computer system which is away from the main stereo.

Anyway, I now fully understand the difference between these two so shall be looking, though am disappointed as we don't have an Apple store very near at all.

Hi Carol

With the iPod Touch, as long as you put your broadband
security key in, you will be able to treat it like a PC
online, where you can download material and browse the
Internet.  What you can't obviously do is make calls etc,
because the phone part is not included.  But, as I've
said several times, the phone isn't the bit I want as I
am happy with the handsets and Talks I use.  I just love
the iPod Touch for the applications it can work with.  At
the moment, for example, I have put my device through a
set of Bose speakers, and am listening to Five Live
Sports Extra so I can hear the tennis.  Quality is very
good and no drop-out or stuttering.


Kind Regards,

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.
