Get Movies Easy With The RedBox Application

Renting Movies Is As Easy As 123

Redbox has been a growing movie rental hotspot. It is very easy to go ahead and grab a movie that interests you. Now the App Store has this application available for the three mobile devices (iPod Touch, iPhone, and iPad). You can browse through a whole entire collection of movies easily (just like if you were at a Redbox machine).

When you open the application, you have all these featured/newest movies show up first. You can go through all of them and scroll down or you can just search a specific movie you want to find. If you are looking for something new but in a specific genre, then just tap where it says all movies on the upper left hand corner and it will show you all the different genres it has.

When you have found the movie you are looking for, you can tap on “Find This Movie” and it will find a location near you. Finding the closest available place with your movie has never been this easier. Once you’ve found the destination, you can reserve it by tapping on select and logging in. Now all you have to do is go pick it up. That’s how simple this application is.

Viber – Free Phone Calling For iPod Touch

Very Easy To Use!

Have you ever wished there was a way an iPod Touch can call and text all in one app? The Viber application is the perfect app for calling and texting especially for the iPod Touch. It is known to have the best sound quality, NO ADS, and very simple to use. On top of all that, it is completely free.

After you download Viber, it will ask you to punch in your cell phone number. A code will be sent to you after you’ve typed it in. This application is just like Skype and will only allow you to call/text Viber users. If they aren’t a Viber user, then get them to sign up. The Viber application is also not that great for the iPod Touch and iPad yet but they are working on it. It still works, but you may experience problems than when you use an iPhone because it works best with it for now. It’s an okay application but since it’s free, why not try it out?

Discover New Applications On Your iPhone And iPod Touch

This Application Is Very Easy To Use!

Looking for new applications? Downloading Discovr Apps by Jammbox lets you see all kinds of different applications that are similar to the one you are searching. For example, when you start the app, it asks you to type in a name (of an application) or tap one of the recommended apps below. I searched Discovr Music (also created by Jammbox) and it gave me tons of other applications that were similar to that one app.

I love this application because it really helps if you’re trying to find new applications similar to another app. After I typed the application name in the search box, it had a small little group of 6 applications surrounding it. They are all similar applications to what I searched for. If you tap on one of them, it will show you more applications that are similar to the application you tapped on. On the bottom of the application’s icon, you can see the rating of the app, if it’s for iPhone or iPad, and if the application costs or not. Double tapping on the application will lead you to the description page and a link to download it.

I found so many new applications by using this Discovr Apps. It’s only $2.99 in the App Store, but sometimes it does go on sale. If you’re someone who likes to download new things from the App Store, then I would recommend getting this app. It’s very entertaining and interesting on what you can find. Who knows? Maybe you can find something even better than what you were originally looking for.

The Best Classical Music Applications

Listen To Live Classical Music

I love to listen to Classical Music whenever I can. The way the music goes just sounds so beautiful and it’s amazing how all those instruments go together perfectly. I found three applications that I think you’ll enjoy a lot. The names of these apps are: Classical KDFC, Classical Music I: Master’s Collection Vol. 1, and Classical Music II: Master’s Collection Vol. 2. The Master’s Collection apps don’t need Wi-Fi in order to listen to the music, but the KDFC one needs to have internet in order to listen to it.

Classical KDFC is a free application and it’s one of my favorites. It’s an actual radio station form San Francisco California and they play live music (like radio). You can listen to it, set it for your alarm clock (so you wake up to the classical music playing), let it play in the background, buy the song (that’s playing), Facebook, and check out their events. It seems like there’s a lot of stuff in this app, but really it’s just really nice and easy to use. On the top right hand corner is a little “i” button. If you tap on that, you can visit KDFC’s Website, call them, and send feedback.

Listen To Classical Anywhere

The next application is the Classical Music I: Master’s Collections Vol. 1 and Classical Music II: Master’s Collections Vol. 2. You can download the volume 1 for free, but it only gives you 30 seconds of the song to listen to. If you want to listen to the full song, then you have to upgrade (in app purchasing) for only $4.99. The volume 2 app costs $4.99 but they give you the full length songs to begin with. This may seem expensive, but it is really worth it because you get 120 songs and more (as they upgrade). It’s all kinds of Classical Masterpieces from all kinds of famous composers.  All the music in these apps is just wonderful to listen to.

It’s free in the App Store and one of the best scanner applications you can get.

Music Problem With New iOS 5 Apple Update For The iPod Touch

Just Delete The Music Option When It Shows Up In The Multitask Bar And Go Back To It

I have updated my iPod Touch with the new Apple update that has recently came out. I was excited and wanted to explore the new features as soon as it was done. After I waited awhile, it was finished and I was excited to check it out. I played some music as I was on my iPod. Something puzzled me once I didn’t hear anything. I went to my music and after the first song played, it just stopped and wouldn’t play the next song. In fact sometimes it would skip songs or randomly play a song and have a different title name showing in the front. I am not sure if iPhone users are having this same problem but if they are, then this can help.

This really bothered me because I found out that there was a new bug in this update. I couldn’t enjoy my music like I used to. While I was walking one night, I found a way to “listen” to your music until Apple gets the bug problem solved. Once it freezes on you, just exit out of the music and then stop it from running in the background (by double clicking the home button and then deleting the music in the multitasking bar). Then you can go back to it and when you press play, it usually works again.

Another possible way of solving this problem is to restore your iPod Touch. If you need to restore it from the last upgrade (if that’s even possible), then go ahead and then download the new upgrade again. Sometimes when you try and upgrade your Apple device, it can upgrade wrong so a defect in one specific area can occur. So go ahead and restore the iPod and hopefully this solves the problem too. These two ideas are the best possible ways that I’ve found for now but other than that, we will just have to wait until Apple gets this problem solved.
