iPod touch Updates

The iPod touch also has a software upgrade, adding five more mobile apps to it - Mail, Maps, Stocks, Weather and Notes. The touch upgrade also includes features like Web Clips, which allows users to customize their home screen and the ability to watch iTunes Movie Rentals.

While the new iPod touch products shipping from the factory will have the software upgrade for free, existing iPod touch customers will have to fork out US$19.99 to purchase and download it from iTunes. The iPod touch home screen can be customized, as users can reorder and add new icons, with support to have up to nine home screens which they can flick to and fro. If you're surfing, you can add custom icons on your home screen that leads to your fave websites via the Web Clips function. It is something like your Favorites pull-down menu, at the touch of your finger.
