6th generation ipod hits, taps, and swips

With the multi-touch screen on the 6th generation ipod it responds to your finger gestures like a dream.

It is pretty simple to navigate once you get the hang of it, just a few touches and swipes are all it takes for you to realize how "second nature" this becomes.

It makes you wonder what could they possibly be next in such a small package?

Here are a few basic operation features for all you newbies out there, but don't worry I am here to walk you threw!

First things first,

Tap an icon to activate it, or to select an item in a menu or list.

Tap a photo 2x for a zoom, then double-tap again to max out.

Touch and hold anywhere on the screen (except on an icon or control obviously) to return to the home(main) screen.

Touch and hold an icon to rearrange them on your home screen - when the icons begin to jiggle, drag them into a new order, then press the Sleep/Wake button(large top-right) to save your settings.

Swipe sideways to move to the next or following screen.

Flick your finger quickly up or down to scroll rapidly(like I said no more scroll button) .

You can wait for scrolling to stop, or touch anywhere on the screen to stop it instantly.

Don't worry by touching the screen will not choose or activate anything.

One thing I almost forgot you can rotate the screen so it's easier to see when you clip your nano to something.

Put your two fingers on the screen lightly and turn in the direction you want the screen to move, until the screen faces the way you want.

Simple as that.

Didn't I tell you that was easy.

Don't worry we are not done yet.

Most memorable times in our life have a soundtrack, and that's where iPod nano comes to play.

The Multi-Touch screen has you experience your media in a wonderful new way.

Touch to play whatever you would like to hear.

Tap onto the Home screen to browse your music collection by genres, play-lists, composers, artists, albums, and songs.

What I really think is cool is that you can even rearrange the apps on how you want them to be organized on the various pages of the ipod. Just Like it's big brother's iPhone and iTouch!

There is a rechargeable lithium-ion battery which lasts when fully charged a jaw dropping 24 hours of continuous music.

When you are on your way to work, exercising, or just plain relaxing this ipod nano comes with a massive eight or sixteen gigs of storage so you will never run out of something to listen too.

Yahtzee Anyone?

Tired of trying to make play-lists and too lazy to hit the shuffle function?

Well give your nano a good shake and have it do all the shuffling for you!

This is perfect when you are unsure of what you want to listen to.

So give it shake and be amazed on what you might hear. Let the 6th generation ipod nano be the DJ.

Can You Say Genius

Not many of us could say that about ourselves unless you are a 6th generation ipod nano.

Reason being Apple has created a technology that groups your songs together in the best way it knows how in a way they call "Genius" .

For example lets say you're listening to a particular song you love and you want to hear similar ones like it.

Simply touch the app that is clearly marked Genius.

It will locate other songs within your iPod which would go perfectly together and creates a Genius for your listening pleasure.

In addition to other song combinations you would not have thought of yourself, turn Genius on in iTunes and sync the ones you like to your 6th generation ipod nano.

Then touch the Genius Mix app and explore songs you haven't heard in ages,or realize you have music that you never knew you had.

Keep Your Music Close with 6th generation ipod

Remember the ipod shuffle?

The small handy clip that seemed to clasp to everything like a close-pin.

Well Apple has made the 6th generation ipod nano come with the same built-in clasping mechanism so you are able to attach it anywhere.

Now you can go anywhere or do anything while listening to anything in your media library.

Plus, the display is large enough to showcase the art work of your favorite artists, which is always a great feature to have.

Stay In Step

The 6th generation ipod nano could also be used as a pedometer, which makes it perfect for the walking enthusiast.

It is able to record your journey step-by-step tomeet all your fitness goals.

Just clip and walk.

iTunes Is The Best Way To Keep Anyone Entertained

iTunes is one of the easiest cost-efficient ways to populate your 6th generation ipod nano with the latest music, audiobooks, prodcasts, and more.

Best of all what better way to organize your music collection of CD's on your computer with the ever-expanding iTunes store.

Everything you purchase threw iTunes appears in your library just waiting for you to make your next new playlist yourself, or threw good old Genius.

Best of all iTunes is yes you guessed it...FREE

First thanks for stopping by.

Second yes you can transfer music from a PC library and transfer it into iTunes by changing the format. You can do this with a program called "All2Mp3" its a free download.. you just drop the music files into there and hit convert.

Now the syncing part, is the nano originally formatted with that mac?

It is possible you might be bumping the screen somehow?

Or you might have it on automatic shuffle..

I just thought of something.

R all of your songs that you synced to your nano in "AAC" format?

I know that is the problem I had come to think of it.

iTunes seems to have a problem installing on my computer. Ive tried everything and the components just don't work. Any way to put my music on there without itunes?

Thanks for stopping by. Hmmm does your computer have the minimum requirements (Memory/Ram/Processor) to install iTunes? I would check that first.. If not I would call Apple Care and see what they can do to assist you further. Here is the number (800-275-2273).

My ipod is hanged.Not responding.What should I do?

christopher9882 4 years ago from Chicago, IL Author

Try shutting it down...

If you can't do that they sync it to iTunes and have it reset.

I am assuming you have all your music backed-up.
