Almost everyone has an iPod these days. I have read an article on Associated Content stating that carrying a CD player is so 90’s. Therefore, adults and teenagers are more likely to use their iPod when listening to music. Other uses for these gadgets usually include maps, dictionary searches, dating services and games. However, the fun does not stop there. I have found more alternative uses for your iPod that can come in handy.
While books are still valued in our society, everyone does not read for leisure. Many people select audio versions instead of a standard paperback. This is where your iPod can be put to good use. If you are busy or would rather use books for decoration, this gadget can help in making positive life changes. Instead of letting your favorite personal developments books collect dust, purchase them in an electronic form for the iPod.
By getting audio books, you can convert the CDs to files that fit right on your iPod. This will allow you to listen to audio books while jogging, traveling or doing household chores. Personal development is one of the greatest alternative uses for your iPod. Using the gadget for this matter is like investing in yourself. That makes the price of these musical gadgets and audio books well worth their price.
This is one of the most fun alternative uses for your iPod. It can come in handy at parties with friends or family members. If there is not a stereo around, you can attach your iPod to a pair of speakers and play music directly from the playlists that were created. Doing so will add more life to the party. Using your iPod for party music is great, even if you did not intend on doing so.
It especially works during times when someone forgot to bring music. That happens a lot on various occasions. Luckily, anyone with an iPod will be able to provide music for dancing or mere enjoyment. Therefore, alternative uses for your iPod can save the day in some cases. The gadget will make you the designated music DJ for the evening.
Daily Shopping list
This is one of the most valuable alternative uses for your iPod. Many people forget important items while shopping. This can be at the grocery store or running other errands. I have shopped at various places and forgot some items at the end of the day. This particular alternative use for your iPod turns the gadget into a personal recorder. Using a microphone, you can record a shopping list and store it on the iPod for later use.
This beats having to make sure that you bring the paper with notes scribbled all over it. You can buy a voice recorder or mic adapter for the iPhone to utilize this idea. There are a few companies that produce a line of microphone related products for the iPod. Belkin is one of them. However, every item may not be compatible with all types of the iPod. This is true no matter what company or brand is chosen. Therefore, if you have one of the variations (Nano, Shuffle, etc.), it is best to read the fine print before making a purchase.
