Chapter 1. Touring the iPod > What You Can Do with an iPod

What You Can Do with an iPod

The iPod is definitely a great music player, but it is much more than that, as you will learn throughout this part of the book. For now, here are just some of the great things you can do with an iPod:

  • Take your entire music collection, or at least part of it, with you wherever you go.

  • Play your music in many different ways, such as by album, artist, genre, song, playlist, and so on.

  • Eliminate the need to carry CDs with you anywhere; using an adapter or an FM transmitter, your iPod can provide music in your home, car, or any other place you happen to be.

    note

    Additional accessories are required to perform some of the tasks on this list. And not all models (most notably the shuffle) can do all of them. The shuffle is limited to only playing music (which is, of course, the primary reason to have an iPod in the first place).


  • View your calendar.

  • Access contact information for your favorite people and companies for quick and easy reference.

  • Keep track of the time and date and have a portable alarm clock.

  • Listen to your favorite audio book.

  • Listen to podcasts.

  • Transfer information between computers or back up your important files.

  • Record sound.

  • Store pictures from a digital camera.

  • View pictures and slideshows and play the same on a TV (iPod or iPod U2 Special Edition).
