Some of these paid and free apps for ipod touch will even allow you to essentially convert your iTouch into an internet and phone-ready device.

Bump

This app allows two people to trade contact info simply by using Bluetooth. Literally, all you have to do is bump the other person’s iTouch with yours (preferably a fist bump without the devices actually touching), and contact info is instantly traded. No more time consuming and awkward info exchange necessary.

Skype

Skype is a free app for phone, text, or video chat. If your iTouch is a model that has a microphone and camera, then you can do video chat from your iTouch. This app also allows you to make super cheap international or local calls to landlines. It works by combining internet and phone into a VoIP service. While Skype does have some issues- mainly with call quality- you can’t argue with free, and the face-to-face video chat is fairly awesome in itself. It is a great tool for staying in touch with long distance friends or family, and a favorite of military families as well. There are other companies that offer nearly the same service, but Skype seems to be the favorite, hands down.

Mobile Google

This is the quick, one-touch access to your Google calendar, email, and maps. It is even voice activation capable (for mic-enabled devices). Just tell your iTouch what you’re looking for, and Google fetches it and displays it on your screen, pronto.

The Weather Channel

The free Weather Channel app service is literally just like the weather channel, only mobile on your iTouch. It shows you the current weather and the forecast for your immediate area at any time of the day. Never get caught out in a storm again!

Shazam

One of the most amazing apps available, Shazam can instantly recognize any music. Hear a song at a club or when out and about that you want the info on? Simply hold up your iTouch, and Shazam will recognize the song, and provide you with artist, title, and even album information. A genius invention!

Thetrainline
