The recent holidays have brought me a new gadget: an iPod touch. I’ve had iPod envy for awhile. Ideally I’d love a smartphone but with contracts and such it’s just not the right time for a new phone.
So an iPod touch was on my Christmas wish list. My dad likes to ‘spoil’ me now since he says he couldn’t when my brother and I were young.
I’ve had my new toy for about a week. I use it even when I don’t need to. Like now sitting on my living room futon. Though in a way it’s more comfortable to type on than my mac on my lap. So I’m just testing it out seeing what apps I like. One that I like is urbanspoon which is a fun way to choose a place to eat or just read restaurant reviews. As for games, I like TouchHockey. I found that one from one of the guys at the last Montreal tweetup in december when I played it. I also have the CBC and NFB apps that a coworker showed me.
As for library applications, I haven’t delved into them yet. I did hear that Question Point will soon be rolling out a qwidget app so that’ll be cool for our users, though obviously not so much for me. What library or book related apps do you like and recommend?
