Tapping Links

You'd be surprised at the number of iPod Touch newbies who stare dumbly at the screen, awestruck at the beauty of full-blown Web pages—but utterly baffled as to how to click links.

The answer: Tap with your finger.

Just tap the links on the screen, much the way you'd click them if you had a mouse. As you know from desktop-computer browsing, not all links are blue and underlined. Sometimes, in fact, they're graphics.

Tip

If you hold your finger on a link for a moment—touching rather than tapping—a handy bubble sprouts from it, identifying the full Web address that will open. For example, the link might say, "For a good time, click here," but it might actually take you to a Web site like www.missingmanuals.com.
