“Amazing help and peace of mind”

Written on: 11/03/2013

I have found the site very easy to use, my children both got ipod touches for Christmas and i wanted to ensure the best deal for insurance and Protect Your Bubble had the best deal and the most comprehensive cover and peace of mind for me. I completed the forms on my smart phone and found it great to use on the phone as sometimes sites are not very compatable with mobile devices with resolution and so on but this was great. I have recommended to my family and friends and also my teenage… Read Full Review

“IPOD Touch”

Written on: 27/09/2012

I bought this for my son as a birthday present. I have since bought 2 more. It is lightweight, easy to use and very user friendly. My children love them and are constantly using them to talk to friends, listen to music play games. The only negative thing I can say about it is that going into ITUNES and loading music for first time is very confusing and a user friendly guide to doing this would of great help. The first time I ever did this it took me all morning. Also it would be great to… Read Full Review

“Every0thing and iPhone can do, except to make a phone call”

Written on: 30/05/2012

All the apps you could ever want on the most popular media. Easy to use and understand. Basically an iPhone without the mobile phone function - however, when you're on WiFi you can use it with Skype (and it's free). Video capability is excellent, but no flash for still pictures and you can't zoom in when using video (zoom on stills is pretty bad too). Still excellent for a quick snap on the spur of the moment, but can't replace an actual camera. Only limitation is the memory size, I only… Read Full Review

“bad screen strength or design”

Written on: 04/04/2012 by markaylott (10 reviews written)

I purchased an 8GB for my son for xmas , and we have another three in our house. Unfortunately this was dropped from a height of no more than 18 inches onto our wooden flooring and the screen broke!! I have since visited my local apple store to see if there is a fault on this model and they have said that they will repair/replace it for a cost of £75 (half the cost of the actual Ipod !!!!) . I find this disgraceful that an item such as this would break as easily and would therefore NOT… Read Full Review

“These things fail and they fail often!”

Written on: 16/02/2012 by skytour (1 review written)

My girlfriend bought an IPod Touch. It lasted 8 months then failed - it stopped responding to the touch screen. Eventually it was replaced by the large retail chain it was bought from (Comet, UK). 8 months later, the replacement failed in exactly the same way. I contacted the store. No problem, they said. Products replaced under warranty carry 12 month guarantees, just like any other new product. Then I told them what the product is. Ohhhhhhhh....sorry, they said. We didn't know you bought an… Read Full Review

The iPod Touch was really one of those things that I have wanted from the beginning, but have never really been sure about actually getting around to buying. I'm now very glad that I did.
The iPod Touch 4th Gen is a device that has inspired many-a-gadget with its sleek applications; brilliant usability and massive amount of usages. Apple started the touch-screen craze, and I'm not surprised to see that they have pushed their product up yet another notch.

Written on: 12/03/2011 by Bennyboo (1 review written)

Its great, its easy to link up to a computer and its hold lots of apps. Its also great with music as its compatible with any set of headphones unlike some new mobile phones. I liked the fact it had a big battery but it took a long time to charge. Its not that bad if you get a charging docking station. Its double touch and only allows finger e.g you cant touch it with a pen or gloves. But you can get pens and glove for it… Read Full Review

“iPod Touch 4 Review ”

Written on: 10/03/2011 by keenkenneth (7 reviews written)

iPod Touch 4 Review


After a fortnight I have a few things to say about the iPod Touch 4.

The iPod Touch 4 does not show up in your Finder, which would enable you to place items EXACTLY where you want them. It seems that Apple prefer that you access your videos and photos via additional software which they will gladly sell you. This makes things of course more complicated. You have to turn on iTunes and still the photos are not to be seen. iPhoto has to be bought and installed.
You are then… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/12/2010 by keengreen (4 reviews written)

Of course the ipod touch looks great and sounds great - when it's working. The problem I've had is 3 units in 6months. 2 simply died after a few weeks use. Apple are a very aroogant company, we had to send the product off despite going into an Apple shop. They reconditioned the first one and sent us a new one for the second. I knew they were unreliable but Apple really should get their customer services improved… Read Full Review

IT'S BLOODY AWESSOOOMMMEEE. Except for the sucky still camera. But it is still the best mp3 player on the market! It is useful, fun, functional, good quality and everything! Everyone should have one of these! It's a sin to not like this thing, its absolutely, positively AMAZING. I've done much research on it, I have tried using it and everything. All I need is to get one. And as lucky as I am...I am getting one! For Christmas, as a present from my parents. Once I own one of these, I will spoil… Read Full Review
