    Ipod Touch apps question

    Can i get any app for my ipod touch that is available for the iphone or are there 2 different types of apps if that made sense ?

    So for eg : there is a weather app one version for iphone other version for ipod touch

    then there might be an app available for the iphone that isnt available for the ipod touch ?

    I assumed you could get all apps and it depends on the device you have, whether the app works or not..

    yes, might be some difference in some apps, the iphone has a phone, so bound to be apps to do with phoning specifically, and iphone can get data via phone network, so again some apps are relevant to that

    im sure either apps store detects when you use the device to browse and buy, or itunes will guide, or they will make it very clear to you on the app details

    there are apps that only work on the iphone. they focus on the phone features. there are even apps that do not work on the different versions of the iphone.

    Not quite. There are those apps that only work on the iPhone, as others have said. In addition to the ones that work with the phone features, there are also others that only work with the compass.

    I wouldnt worry that you might buy an app that wont work, there are already many different versions of iphones/touch and they have to make it pretty idiot proof (i am saying nothing about apple owners:whistling: )
