Change The Background Color On An Ipod Touch With Apps

Customize the look of your iPod touch with a new background color.

If you’ve been using your iPod touch for a while, you might be weary of looking at the free background images that come already installed on the device. Instead, you might prefer to change the background color with an app. The iPod touch, a portable music player made by Apple, has a touch-sensitive display, a built-in microphone and two cameras, and it connects to the Internet via Wi-Fi so you can access Apple’s App Store and download free apps to change the device’s background color. For example, you could download “Menu Color,” “Retina Wallpapers HD with Glow Effects” or “Vivid Wallpaper Lite.”
