Apple iPod touch (6th Generation)

Apple iPod touch (6th Generation)

Quick Description

The iPod touch might have very little to offer to someone who already owns an iPhone. That said, it remains a very compelling option if all you're looking for is something to play mobile games on, try iOS if you already own an Android or Windows phone or if you usually spend time where there's a WiFi you can tap into. I've used an iPod Touch as my Personal Digital Assitant for years and I have to say; it can be a very potent companion for those of us trying to avoid paying for mobile service.

Programs, Apps and Games it will handle

Activity ratings are good but sometimes, you want to be absolutely sure your next purchase will be able to run a specific piece of software.

A 1 star rating means the program'll be usable (according to the developer's own definition; some are more demanding than others); 3 stars mean recommended specs are met with this device; 5 stars will means you will have plenty of overhead to handle uncommon uses of that program like mods, plug-ins and more.
