how to download games


When you are using an Apple system, you can download apps from the iTunes Appstore. This works for all systems, from iPod to MAC.
You only need an account on the app store.
Most of my downloads will work via Wifi, direct into the device. Later when I connect my device to a computer with iTunes installed, the App will be downloaded to the computer to, so I can restore it, even without connection to the net.

i am not able to download vlc media player for ipod touch . please provide me a valid link for it.


The VLC media player is no longer in the Apple Appstore. It was taken down by apple due to the app violating the GNU public license (GPL) because App Store purchases have Digital Rights Management (DRM) applied to them.

You need to create an iTunes account and then activate it to be able to download, you'll need that even if the apps are free. Activating your iTunes account means you will need to provide them your credit card information, so you have to have a credit card, without that, sorry...
Here's how to create an iTunes account:
1. From your computer, open iTunes and go to iTunes Store.
2. Once it opens, look at the top-right corner of the iTunes Store window and you will see there "Sign In". Click on it.
3. A pop-up window will then appear asking you to "Sign In" or to "Create New Account", of course, you must click "Create New Account".
4. Once you click "Create New Account", you'll be taken back to iTunes where there's already a welcome sign for you. Just click continue.
5. You'll be presented the iTunes Store Terms and Conditions. Click on the checkbox to put a check on it, then click "Continue".
6. After that you'll be ask to provide some basic information that'll be used to create you iTunes Store Account. Just fill-in all the info needed. You'll also gonna see some emailing options at the bottom, you can check or uncheck them, it doesn't matter. Once you've finished filling up all the necessary information, click "Continue".
7. Then, you'll need to provide some credit card information. Don't worry, this thing is safe, I've been using my account for 6 months already and there's no hidden charges, and if Apple said the app is free, it's really free. There's absolutely no surprises. So, provide them all the info that they need and click "Done".
After you click done, you'll be presented your Apple Account Information which you can modify anytime. Verify that all info are correct and click "Done", again.

I'll be providing some screen shots for this a little later.
