    i tried to upgrade an app and when it started loading on the home page it just stopped. now i cant delete the uprgade or get access to the app it ws upgrading. also whenever i try to open another app that i downloaded it freezes it and i have to restart.

    the apps that came with the ipod still work, except i cant get anything to load when i open the App store or Itunes on my ipod.

    ive tried everything and nothing has worked and i am really starting to get pissed off

    That is not right at all..... This kind of sillyness shouldn't be happening when you pay all this money! Thanks for ya help tho, downloaded another app and everything was fine!

    I've had this happen a few times, What I find helpful is restarting the iPod. Holding down the 'hold' and 'home' button for at least 10 seconds until the screen goes black and the silver apple icon appears, that usually helps, and then I can work them again.

I dont know if this will work for you guys but i had the same problem but when i download a new app the problem goes away. It works for me whenever this happens and hopefully it will work for you too, so just get some crappy free app then delete it later.

Apps won't sync to Ipod Touch


Not always automatic. You do need to go into the apps tab while in iTunes (looking at the highlighted iPod) and select the apps to sync. As long as the box is checked next to it and you legitimately own the app and it is iPod Touch compatible, it should work without a hitch.

Apps dont work!!!


I think it is that you might have to restore your ipod to its original firmware and reinstall the apps. If this doesn't help, call apple and let them fix your itouch. Also these days, anyone that jailbreaks their itouch gets their itouch screwed because apple does not allow jailbreaking.

New downloaded apps wont work


Try removing that app from your iPod, then download it again from the App Store (free re-downloads) or if it is on your computer, simply connect your iPod and upload it back onto your iPod. That always works for me.

New itouch 32 gig. All downloaded apps stop


Try turning off your ipod after installing a new app. Hold down the sleep/wake button on the top for 6 seconds, then slide accross to power off when prompted.

Otherwise, if that doesn't work, try restoring the update. Make sure you have the latest version of itunes, which you can get at www.apple.com/itunes.

Then make sure you have the latest firmware version for the ipod.

If all that doesn't fix your problem, try to restore your ipod via DFU mode. Here is a great step by step guide to do that. http://iphonefreakz.com/beginners-guide/howto-dfu-mode/

I hope this helps,

Nathan.


ps. keep in mind, that it could be bad programing if it is only happening on one application.

Some apps that used to work, don't anymore


There is a problem with the iTouch itself. Go to the nearest Apple store and tell them what's wrong, and hopefully the can fix it.

Hope it helps~

Trying to download the aim APP on my itouch?


I'm pretty sure it was asking for your iTunes password. Have you created an iTunes account yet? You need that account to download pretty much everything from the iTunes store, including free apps like AIM. Signing up for the account is pretty easy. Follow this link:

Hope this works. Good luck!

Downloading applications to ipod touch


Hi,   The easiest way to download to your iTouch is directly to your iTouch via the Apple Store. The Apple Store icon is already on your iTouch. Just make sure you are near an internet connection via Airport or Wi Fi. Click on "Download" on the selected app, and then wait a couple of seconds. Your iTouch will indicate when the download is done and the app is installed. You will see the new icon on your your screen page.
  If you install from your computer, you will have to plug your iTouch into the computer and use the  iTunes app to control what you download. 
  I hope that helps.   Shari Dyer
