iTouch, is 8GB enough? - page 3

I might get an iTouch but I want to make sure 8GB is enough for me b/c I want to save money. This is what I will use it for: - a few essential nursing programs (drug guide, etc) - not many songs - barely any pictures, no... Read More

    Thanks, CraigB-RN...

    I really am getting hyped up! As a nursing student, do you think that I could survive with just the epocrates for now? or would I be better with unbound? I am thinking that with the epocrates, I would always need a wi-fi connection to access data.

    Nope Epocrates is a native application and its always on your touch.

    You need a nursing drug reference, one that has information on administration, mixing, etc. Davis Drug guide is the most common and you can get it from skyscape and unbound.

    So how is the new toy?

    I got an 8gb iPhone last week and love it. I don't use it for music (that's what car radio is for - lol), movies - thats what TV is for, etc.. However, I do have about 16 apps on it that I use a lot.

    The apps take up so little space that I can have many more and not feel the need to upgrade.

    So true, traumaRUs!

    I am quite happy & satisfied with my "new toy"! It has gotten a lot of curious looks and inquiries when I pulled it out in clinical. Some nurses didn't even know that this apps existed.

    Most people knew the iTouch but didn't know that it was capable of being used as a handy tool in clinical practice and of course all the other possibilities such as the university, medCalc, games, etc.

    Overall, I am so glad that I did decide to get myself one....happy slides to you!!!

    What is the battery life like?
  8. 1
    During my 7hr/12hr clinicals, it was fine. Fine - meaning, even as I used it to constantly input pt info, look up meds, disease & disorders, played a bit of music during breaks the battery level was still okay. I usually just turn off the screen to conserve battery if I don't need to use it. Just to be safe I also charge it at night so I don't have to worry about running out of juice the next day.

    I have the iphone and go thru 2100 min/months plus lots of online time. My iphone lasts all day if I keep it on the car charger while travelling.

The nursing program I'm going for reqires a PDA but it must have either Windows or Palm OS platform. iTouch doesn't allow me to download either. Has anyone had the same problem? please help
