Umlauts are those two nifty little dots (or accents) that appear above vowels in German and other languages. They are not default characters on the iPod touch keyboard, but you can make them appear.

If you still cannot picture out how they look like, some people use them to portray smilie that is smiling rather than a colon and a closing parenthesis.

To use an umlaut, do this: touch and hold down the letter on the keyboard. An array of accent marks will appear. From there, your beloved umlaut will be there.

This is a neat tip from Tom’s Guide. Probably not very useful to many people, but definitely in some cases.
