    I am pretty new to the mac scene and just picked up a touch. I am trying to find all the cool features by searching ALL the threads but the time is killing me. I am hoping we can use this one thread to post up your favorite feature and apps you have found for the touch. Any and all info will be greatly appreciated....

    I really like Google Maps on the Touch and have found it really handy.;)

    Coolest feature = touch screen (specifically when zooming)

    coolest app = probably maps

    The obvious

    Touch's coolest feature is obviously the ability to touch, and to navigate applications in a new, innovative way.

    Favorite app would be safari, hands down. They really knew how to do it when they put the beautiful web browser in there.

    My favorite features are:
    • Ipod music player
    • Safari web
    • E-mail access (new feature)
    • Calendar
    • Contacts
    • Video

    I am not a big fan of the new map feature as I don't see what value it provides. It certainly doesn't replace my portable Garmin GPS as wifi isn't typically available when traveling. Overall I love my Touch....I've only had it for two weeks, but it's with me all the time.

    I have found that you can use maps 'on the go' on the iPod Touch. I programmed in the route, went through it direction by direction and then turned my wifi off. In the car I could follow the directions and it even showed the previously loaded satellite pictures complete with zooming. You can use if without wifi, but only if you have already programmed a route.

    If only Safari had a flash player then I would be able to use the all sites I wanted.

    I do hope this comes soon.

    Don't count on it. OS X doesn't play too nice with flash.
