What to do with that new iPhone/iPod you just got

So you got a new iPhone or iPod for the holidays! Great! By now you should have had time to play around with it and you want to know what you should do next! Well here is what you should do in terms of apps,music,photos and more. So let’s get started.

Apps

Here are some of the Apps you should get for your iPhone or iPod Touch.

1. Facebook –

The king of the social networks. As horrible as this app is to some people I don’t find it that bad. Sometimes it will annoy me though. It is better than using the mobile site as you can’t upload all your holiday photos using the web page. [iTunes Link]

2. Twitter –

Twitter is built into iOS 5. You can tweet out website links and photos from inside our native safari or photos app on the device. To do all of this though you need to get the official twitter app. It is a little hurtful on the eyes but the app itself is good and hey it’s free! [iTunes Link]

3. Tiny Wings –

This is one of my favorite iOS games of all times. Tiny wings. You are a bird who has always dreamed of flying. Unfortunately you have tiny wings. Good thing is the world is full of hills. You try and make it through islands by getting air of the hills. It is extremely addicting and I love it and I hope you will to. [$1 – iTunes Link]

Music

One of the great thing about having an iPhone and an iPod is you have music wherever you go. If you don’t have any though then well you are going to be missing out. One of the things every iPhone and iPod can do is download music,tv,and movies straight from the iTunes store along with previous purchases of TV and music. All you need to do is launch the iTunes store, go into the purchases, music, then hit the download all. This will take a while and unless you have iTunes match your mp3’s will NOT download. So to save time you might just want to plug your iPhone/iPod into iTunes and then have all your music.

Photos

The iPhone and the iPod are great way’s to show off your photos. All you need to do is hit the Photo tab when you connect your iDevice to iTunes and check the “Sync Photo’s” checkbox and you are done! Congrats!

iCloud

iCloud iOS 5’s biggest possibly best feature. It is amazing. It alows you to keep Photo’s, Calanders, Contacts, and more synced accross all your devices. Mac or PC. All you need to do is have an Apple ID. Once you do then you can navigate to Settings>iCloud. If you are not signed in go ahead and then select the services you want! Photo Stream stores 30 days or 1,000 new photos. You can clear ALL of them from iCloud.com and soon individually with iOS 5.1.

Play Around!

There are many great amazing things that the iPhone and the iPod touch have to offer and this is just a quick little guide to get you started. I will be posting some fun tips and tricks for all you new iPhone users and some good ones for older iPhone users. If you have a tip or a trick feel free to comment or send me a message on twitter (@matthewjagiela). Enjoy your night and I hope all of you had a wonderful day.
