Apps to Organize Your Life

Where do I start? First off, your iPod touch has no problem sending and receiving e-mail using the Mail application (as I describe in Chapter 11). It also offers the Contacts app to store contact info, the Calendar app to store events (see Chapter 13), the Notes app to take notes (see Chapter 2), and the Safari app to surf the Web with your bookmarks (see Chapter 10). With a little help from these apps, you'll soon have your schedule whipped into such shape that it will be humming along like a finely tuned German automobile.

Note
