Discussion in 'iPod touch' started by carve, Sep 9, 2007.
For the iPeople that love the touch. Discuss, rant, tell us your opinion.
It won't be released until later this month.
how about....where the hell is the voume control on this thing?
I do know that by clicking the home button twice while the Touch is asleep, it'll bring up controls and you can quickly adjust the volume/track without unlocking the device.
It's honestly not that much bigger of a deal than having to blindly adjust volume on the iPod.
One thing I would love to know, but we won't for a while, is how Apple is going to go about providing apps for it. I would love a few things like a PDF viewer or mail app or some of the other stuff the iPhone has (can't get one in Canada yet, plus im trapped in a 2yr contract anyway )
Hax, I'm guessing. The community is thriving.
I want one 4 my bday so bad!!! That and a new iMac lol
I have seen other people have done it with other ipods, the touch didn't have one.
I like iPod. I like touch. I like music. I like movies. I like internet.
well i figured hacks would be big but how Apple is going to support things,I would much prefer official stuff.
I sort of see what you're shooting at, but at the same time, where would we be without our Mac shareware? I consider it the same on the iPhone/iPod. Apple provides some capability, but there's plenty of potential that they don't capitalize on, but that others are willing to fulfill. Their excuse with the iPhone was that they (ostensibly) didn't want third-party software screwing up AT&T's cell network. No such excuse with the iPod. Either they'll open up software development, or people will turn to hacking the devices to do what Apple won't allow.
^ are the apps 'supported' though? Like are they gonna brick it when the new firmware comes out? I have no beef with third party stuff but the last thing I want is Apple bringing down the brickhammer on my $300 iPod
No reason they should. You're not modifying the system files or anything, just placing more folders in the 'Applications' directory, as it were.
I mean, I think that the programs themselves will stop working after firmware updates, but it doesn't harm the core system of the iPhone at all.
i really want some sort of MS Word app so i can write my essays on it then export it to my computer. that be would the cooliest!
Google Docs, bro.
dude, thx, thats awesome!
Thats exactly what I'm going to use to take notes in class. Freakin 20 days can't come soon enough!
Only problem is you have to have WiFi to use that.. (Not a problem when i am at school)
How about when I am in the car though. A Notes app would be nice.
On a side note, Who the heck is going to write an essay on an iPod.. You must be crazy!
Yeah, a Notes app is going to be the first thing I'm going to hack onto my iPod once I get it. Invaluable.
The iphone has a note application i almost bet you that if someone here has a iphone they could just pull it from its file system and put it on the touch
why cant apple make the ipod touch a little bigger and add a radio??? I WANT IT w/o the attatchment
Well, you're lucky then. The iPod touch doesn't work with the radio remote currently. Hopefully Radio 1 will offer a quicktime stream soon so that I can listen to it over Wi-Fi.
Hopefully it will be compatible with Safari by the time iPod Touch is released.
is it not compatible? i use it w/safari. or are you referring to "mobile" safari?
what i'm curios about is if apple will cripple the touch by not allowing input in certain text fields such as when composing web mail, or adding events to google/yahoo calendar, or taking notes with yahoo's notepad, or (as mentioned) google docs.
call me paranoid, but they've already pulled a bait and switch with the ical app.
writing an essay on the itouch? hello arthritis
Does this Official thread have any purpose whatsoever?
