Apple’s iPods continue to set the bar for media players, with bold new features like the Touch’s supersized screen and Siri voice control. But iPods still lack a guide to all their features. That’s where this full-color book comes in. It shows you how to play music, movies, and slideshows; shoot photos and videos; and navigate Apple's redesigned iTunes media-management program.

The important stuff you need to know:

Fill it up. Load your iPod with music, photos, movies, TV shows, games, ebooks, and podcasts. Manage your stuff. Download media and apps from the iTunes and App Stores, then organize your collection. Tackle the Touch. Send email and instant messages, make FaceTime calls, and shoot photos and HD video with the Touch's 5-megapixel camera. Go wireless. Use the Touch’s new iOS 6 software to sync content wirelessly. Relish the Nano. Enjoy video and photos on the Nano’s new big screen, and chart your workouts with the Nike+ pedometer. Master the Shuffle and Classic. Get mucho music on the little Shuffle, and use the Classic’s giant hard drive to tote around your audio and video collections. Pump it up. Blast iPod tunes through your home and car stereo.

Availability for iPod: The Missing Manual
  1. This book can be read on up to 6 mobile devices.
I got this book because I got a new Ipod Touch, and they don't come with a manual. It covers all the Ipods, and Itunes too. I would have preferred one that was just about the Touch, but this was all they had at the book store and I wanted something immediately. It is well written and organized, and was helpful. I have a Classic as well as the Touch - and it helped me figure out how to get all my covers on Itunes.There is a web site that is available for more help. I would have liked more coverage on file storage and reading/editing which has to be done with an App. Although the book was published not too long ago (7th Edition), it was not accurate with the Itunes interface. I don't know if that is because they were displaying the Mac version, and I have a PC or it it had changed.I also wish they had talked about Mobile.Me.Still it was helpful and worthwhile.more
I'm just a casual user of my 30gig video iPod, and had run across a few things that I couldn't intuitively figure out how to do. I ran across this at the library and gave it a shot. I found the parts dealing with my particular equipment to be well-written and fairly clear, although I still had to do some experimentation to get my iPod to do what the instructions said it should do. The sections dealing with other technology (such as the iPod Touch) were extraneous to me, and therefore something of a waste in this book.Overall, this book did what I needed it to...it gave me a clearer picture of how to do basic stuff with a video iPod. But I'm still glad I checked it out for free from the library instead of paying for it.more
