iTouch, is 8GB enough?Register Today!
This is a discussion on iTouch, is 8GB enough? in Mobile Apps For Nurses, part of General Nursing ... I might get an iTouch but I want to make sure 8GB is enough for me b/c I want to save money. This...by xiongmao Jan 2, '09I 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 movies
- a few fun apps for when i'm bored
- whatever apps i need for organizing my life (calendar, tasks, planner, etc)
Can someone tell me what the the average size of an installed nursing program/app? I dunno how many of these I can fit onto this thing.
So is 8GB enough? Thanks for ur help guys!

- Jan 3, '09 by MBARNWhere do you purchase the nursing applications for I-touch?
- Jan 3, '09 by CraigB-RN8 gigs should be more than enough. As I posted in another thread, My 2 gig Ipod is only half full of music and My palm t5 and the 2gig card are less than half full, I've got a few games, some books to read and my reference material.
If you can swing it, go with the 16 gig but if not, don't worry about it. At worst it might mean that in the future you have to syn more frequently to change out the music.

You can't put a price on future proofing yourself.

- Jan 3, '09 by MBARNThanks Craig! What I wanted to know was should I invest in the I-touch or Palm? I have a nano and I-MAC and I am trying to switch over to MAC technology and was wondering whether the nursing applications that I would need as a new nurse are MAC compatible b/f I spend the big bucks on an I-touch? Thanks
- Jan 4, '09 by Jen2002I would definitely go with the 32gb. I just got the 8gb and I already used up most of the memory. I wish I would have gone bigger.
- Jan 4, '09 by xiongmaoQuote from Jen2002but what do you use it for? is it because u have a lot of songs or movies or something? because i definitely will be using it for some nursing programs and the internet mainly. won't have much songs/multimedia stuff. maybe a few small apps like games.I would definitely go with the 32gb. I just got the 8gb and I already used up most of the memory. I wish I would have gone bigger.
- Jan 4, '09 by HM2VikingRNI bought the 16 gig when it was on sale at best buy. More is usually better simply because memory demands for applications tend to only grow as they become more powerful. Best of luck.
