I normally listen to music when I workout, makes the time go by faster and I enjoy working out more when I have music to listen. I was given the Microsoft apple iPod as a gift not knowing much about it. Of all the mp3 players and iPods I have had in the past this one is by far the best one. I misplaced the direction booklet, for my iPod, but I didn't need it because it was so easy to use.
The screen doesn't freeze up like some of the other models and brands of iPods and it moves so smoothly without having to constantly tap on the screen to get it moving; it has a lot of storage space on it, as well. You can down load a whole library of music from A-Z and still have room to download pictures and movies if you like. My little iPod gets passed around quite a bit in my family, but I don't mind. I'm sure this will be on my kids Christmas list this year.
The only thing that I wish it had on it is a camera; since I'm always snapping pictures, but that is by no means a compliant on my part about this nifty little gadget that has so much on it already. I absolutely love my apple iPod.
