Apple 2GB iPod shuffle (fourth generation, late 2010) review
Conclusion OUR VERDICT With the redesign of the fourth-generation iPod shuffle, Apple has brought back a classic design that works well with any set of headphones. At £39 for 2GB of storage, it’s not only the perfect entry-level iPod, it’s also a solid second device for iPhone users who want to keep it simple while exercising. While the shuffle’s reduced size makes it a bit harder to clip on clothing than the second-generation model, it’s hard to quibble about small details without focusing on the big one: Apple has backed off its misguided design of a buttonless iPod shuffle and returned to the right path. Throw in the VoiceOver features and the longer battery life, and it’s easy to say that this is the best iPod shuffle Apple has ever made.

Conclusion The iPod shuffle is a simple and easy to use MP3 player that will require you to have some grasp of iTunes to get the most out of it, but if you've got that you'll love it. For runners, the ability to create playlists based on the Genius mixes is a great addition as is the ability to access individual playlists. At 12.5 grams it's incredibly light, comes in a range of "pretty" colours and won't get in the way of your running kit.That combined with a battery life of around 15 hours means you'll only be looking to charge this every so often rather than at the end of every day. But beyond running, your phone will probably offer a better experience.
