Tip & How-To about Apple iPhone Smartphone

Arrange Application icons on the iPhone or iPod touch

The iPhone and iPod touch have a lot in common: both come with pre-installed Applications, and you can add more Applications from the iTunes Store.
When you add an Application it appears in the last position on the Applications screen, starting a new page as the previous page fills up. Before long you find yourself flipping through several pages of Applications to find the one you want

The iPod Touch gives users the ability to enjoy videos and music while on the go. Users can also surf the Internet on the iPod Touch. Before you can start using the iPod Touch, though, the device will need to be activated. When you activate the iPod Touch, you will register the device and sync the player with your iTunes account. Completing this process will allow you to purchase content from the pre-installed App Store and iTunes applications found on the iPod Touch.

1. Connect the Apple iPod Touch to the computer using the iPod Touch USB cord.

2. Open iTunes on the computer.

3. Click the word "iPod" underneath the "Devices" menu, located on the left part of iTunes.

4. Click the "Continue" button in the middle iTunes window. Then, click the "License Agreement" box. Click the "Continue" button once more.

5. Enter your iTunes Store account information inside the middle iTunes window. Then, click "Continue." Then, type in the requested personal information (such as name, address, etc.) to register the iPod Touch with Apple.

6. Click the "Not Now" button on the "Mobile Me" page to skip this step. Signing up for Mobile Me isn't necessary for activating the iPod Touch.

7. Select the "Set up as new iPod" option inside the middle of iTunes. Enter a name for your iPod Touch inside the text box that's in the iTunes window. Then, click "Continue."

8. Choose one of the sync settings listed in the center iTunes window. Whether you decide to manually or automatically sync your iPod Touch with iTunes is up to you--you can change this setting at any time. After you've selected a sync setting, click "Done." The iPod Touch will be activated. From here, you can add music to your iPod Touch or disconnect the player. Only disconnect the iPod Touch after you see the "OK to Disconnect" message appear at the top of iTunes.

I hope you find it very helpful. Best regards.

wont down load itune on new ipod that i had already purchased.


What do you mean you can't download iTunes? Did you purchase an iPod Touch? If yes, it comes pre installed with iTunes on the homescreen. Also, you have to go to iTunes.com and download the program on your pc so you can sync your iPod and download music, movies and applications for your new iPod

it says can not sync ipod(-53) What does this mean..how to fix


Hi, message saying "can not sync" means that the connection from the ipod to the computer was not successful..
If you sync your iPod with a different/empty library iTunes will only give you the option to copy your iTunes Store purchases directly from the iPod to the computer and everything else on it will be erased. You'll find details on transferring purchases in this article: iTunes Store: Transferring purchases from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod to a computer

Purchased applications can be downloaded over again, see this article for details: How to redownload purchased applications from the App Store

If you want to recover the music from CDs etc that is on the iPod and transfer it to your new computer there are a few things you can do. music from CDs etc.) there are a number of third party utilities that you can use to retrieve the music files and playlists from your iPod Touch or iPhone. You'll find that they have varying degrees of functionality and some will transfer data (such as playcounts and ratings), movies, videos, photos, podcasts and games as well.

A selection of iPod/iPhone to iTunes utilities:
Senuti Mac Only (iPod Touch & iPhone compatible)
SharePod Windows Only (iPhone and iPod Touch compatible)
TuneJack Windows Only (iPhone and iPod Touch compatible)
iPodRip Mac & Windows (iPhone and iPod Touch compatible)
Music Rescue Mac & Windows (iPhone and iPod Touch compatible)
iPod Music Liberator Mac & Windows (iPhone and iPod Touch compatible)
iGadget Mac & Windows (iPhone and iPod Touch compatible)
iRepo Mac & Windows (iPhone and iPod Touch compatible)
iPod Access Mac & Windows (iPhone and iPod Touch compatible)
TouchCopy Mac & Windows (iPhone and iPod Touch compatible)

I would also advise that you get yourself an external hard drive and back your stuff up, relying on an iPod as your sole backup is not a good idea and external drives are comparatively inexpensive these days, you can get loads of storage for a reasonable outlay: Back up your iTunes library by copying to an external hard drive

One last thing, you need to take care connecting to an empty iTunes. Open iTunes first and go to Edit>Preferences>Devices and check the box "Prevent iPods and iPhones from syncing automatically" and choose Ok before connecting your device.

Once you have recovered everything from the iPod and your iTunes library has been rebuilt it will be safe to sync again.

how to dolad games


  1. Update your iPod Software to at least 3.xx version
    This is important as lower version of the software would not allow you to download any applications. You can do so from iTunes. Once you connect your iPod Touch or iPhone to the computer and start iTunes, it will tell you if there is a newer version of the software to upgrade. Just follow the instructions.
  2. Step 2 ** Restart your iPod/iPhone
    This step is just to reboot your iPod system to make sure the new software is in effect.
  3. Step 3 ** Download applications aka games
    Make sure your iPhone/iPod Touch is connected to the internet. On your iPod touch/iPhone home page, there will now be a link labeled: 'Apps store'. Select that link. Now, you are free to browse the many applications and games that iTunes has to offer. Some games are free while others may require you to pay. .
  4. Step 4 **Install the application aka game
    Once you have selected a game to install, tap the box that says, "free" in the right hand corner. It will then read, "Install". Tap the box again. Now, wait for the application to install on your home page.
