Some things are just better explained face-to-face. Even when you’re miles apart. On the front of iPod touch is a built-in camera perfect for making FaceTime video calls.1 Your smile, your laugh, your gasps, your “sad panda” face, even what’s in front of you. Your friend sees it all, live and in full effect. Video calling on iPod touch means your friends can see what you’re up to, when you’re up to it. With a tap, you can call someone on an iPhone, iPad 2, iPod touch, or Mac over Wi-Fi.* And come face-to-face with even more fun.
Trim a little off the ends. Or the middle.
No need to wait until you’re back at your computer to edit video. With basic editing built into iPod touch, you can get right down to business. Just drag to select start and end points on a filmstrip. Keep only the parts of the video you want, and turn it into something you and your friends will watch again and again.
Special guest star: iMovie.
You’re on an epic road trip, and you want to create a video postcard of everything you’ve seen and done. Just use the iMovie app — pick it up on the App Store for just $4.99. Built for Multi-Touch, iMovie lets you combine and edit video clips, give them that extra something with dynamic themes, add music and photos, and share your finished movies with the world.
Thanks to the Retina display, everything you see and do on iPod touch looks amazing. That’s because the Retina display’s pixel density is so high your eye is unable to distinguish individual pixels. Which means images in games, movies, and photos pop off the screen. Text in books, web pages, and email is crisp at any size. And everything is sharper. No wonder it’s called “cutting edge.”
You have great photos on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch and some friends on your couch. Or you’re in the middle of an epic action scene that could use a little more screen. Tap the AirPlay icon on your iOS 5 device from a specific app — Photos, Videos, or Safari, for example — and everything streams to your HDTV via your Apple TV.* Make sure both your device and Apple TV are connected to the same Wi-Fi network, and the AirPlay icon appears automatically.
When iPod came on the scene years ago, it was all about music. iPod touch is the evolution of that first iPod, but one thing remains the same: It’s still about music. With up to 64GB of storage capacity,3 iPod touch lets you keep thousands of songs with you all the time. And when your favorite artist drops an album, or you’re feeling like it’s time for some new music, the iTunes Store is just a tap away.
You know how to use iPod touch from the first time you pick it up. That’s because the revolutionary Multi-Touch interface in iOS was designed for your finger. And the simple, beautiful Home screen is the easiest place to start. From built-in apps to over 500,000 apps available from the App Store. From making a FaceTime call to editing a video with iMovie. Everything you touch is easy, intuitive, and fun.
