The App Store is one of the coolest things about the iPod touch. It’s your gateway to hundreds or thousands of apps that constantly turn your device into an amazing new machine. Here are some tips to take away with you:
  • You can download apps through the App Store on the iPod touch as well as through the iTunes Store on your desktop or laptop.

  • Most apps on the App Store are free or very cheap.

  • Use the App Store to check for updates to your apps. All updates will always be free.

  • Any item purchased on the App Store app will automatically sync back to your iTunes app library on your computer.

  • App Store categories like Top 25 frequently change. Check back often for new apps!

  • Use the Genius feature to find new apps you might like based on your current app downloads.

  • Game Center brings social media to gaming. If you’re a big gamer, it’s worth a try. If you’re the kind of person who just likes to play Tetris while waiting for the train to work, Game Center is a pass.
