Just a few months after the release of the first iPhone, Apple launched the iPod touch. Essentially, an iPod touch is an iPhone without phone capabilities that targets the gaming and music user segments. As AlpVision’s Cryptoglyph and Fingerprint technologies are compatible with iPhones 3 and up, we are frequently asked if we also support iPods. The short answer is “yes, it works”, starting with the 3rd generation of the iPod touch. As the iPod requires neither SIM card nor mobile subscription, it is a perfect solution for customers who wish to use the mobile device as a portable authentication tool. It should be noted that functionalities such as reporting and data mining are still possible via the wireless interface of the iPod touch. The fact that iPods are significantly less expensive than iPhones makes this solution even more attractive.
