How to take iPod Touch to the Max

One thing that is attractive to the iPhone and iPod touch is the hardware. The robust and compact design is lightweight and easy to handle. There is little variation in design as they are all in color black with coal even the same black plain background. Apple, you can choose a custom image for the background, but that's about all the changes allowed. There are some things you can do to get out of your iPod touch.

1. Jailbreak the iPod touch. The jailbreak installs a program on your desktop called Cydia that access to third-party applications contains. The iPod must be connected to your computer through the USB cable during the jailbreak and usually only lasts a few minutes. The jailbreak tool you use must be compatible with the firmware version of your device.

2. Install a theme. Themes are available in Cydia and customize your iPod with a bottom, custom fonts and sounds. This is the most creative ways to your iPod touch the rest.

3. Create folders for your applications. If you have a lot of downloading, the screen quickly filled with applications that are hard to find. You can search for a specific application using the search screen, but it's annoying. Drag an icon on the top half icon to merge them into one folder. Enter a name for the folder in the box that will help you identify. Classify applications in any way, such as alphabetically or by categories.

4. Buy a box of rubber boot. There are many different styles available, and some additional features such as a belt clip or stand. The hard plastic cases are cheap but offer good protection against falling. A case of rubber is ideal because the iPod touch has a very smooth surface. In these cases provides a good grip and add thickness, making it easier to handle.

5. Download a VOIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol) app on the App Store. VOIP uses your WiFi to make calls just like a real phone. You need a headset with a microphone and an Internet connection high speed, high quality talks. Some applications are offering free VOIP: Voice Textree, iCall and Fring.

the icons and letters on my screen are too large to see the commands keys. how do I make it go back to a normal size font

You must have zoomed-in the screen accidentally. It's easy to zoom-out, just double-tap anywhere on the screen using 3 of your fingers (simultaneously) and everything will go back to normal.

And in case you want to zoom-in again, just do the same thing.
