    Hello everyone!

    This question may be dumb but i couldn`t find any thread that could tell me what I needed to know. My question is:
    If I have a iPod touch 2g, can I just go to ur website (toucharcade.com) on my iPod and download the game / app I want. Or how does it work? Do I have to wait untill iPod touch 2g gets jailbreaked? or is it just to download.

    As I said these questions might be dumb but I have to know.

    Thanks // Kev

    I'm not real clear on the question, but if you want to download a game, you just click (tap) the link on the webpage and it takes you too the app store.

    If you're wanting to download cracked games for free, you're on your own.

    Rapture. It sucks.
    Yea if you click a link on this website it will take you to the app store where you can download it. If you want cracked apps then you will need to jailbreak.

    1. We have a whole forum for jailbreaking
    2. The links here take you to the appstore
    3. The vast majority of the people here are against stealing apps
    4. So are the devs that come here ;)
    5. IF you want free apps/game then yes you would need to jailbreak
    6. Jailbreaking is NOT possible on the 2nd gen iTouch

    And allow me to point out that only unapologetic douchebags crack apps. I can understand pirating an Xbox 360 game (not condoning it, don't get me wrong), but pirating games that cost 5-6 dollars?

    Give the devs wath they deserve. Support the independent dev scene. Buy your apps! :)

    people seemed quick to jump to conclusions, but it sounds like the original poster just wanted to know how getting app store games worked.

    You can download games directly from the App Store on your iPod Touch, or you can download them on your Mac or PC through iTunes and then sync them to your iPod Touch.

    I think your questions were answered by several people but I'm just gonna sum it up.

    Click the apps on the new games page or on the main page of TA to get a link to the app store.

    You don't need a jailbroken iPod to click on the links, but you will need to buy them if you want them.

    You can't go into detail about cracked apps on the forums because it causes lots of problems. :p

    Also, welcome to TouchArcade. :) No one else welcomed you so I thought I should :)

    The thing I get paid for
    CANADIA
    You understand stealing things that cost alot but not things that cost under $5. Is there some odd moral pricepoint that I do not understand?

    Funny thing though ----downloading movies, video games and music is still legal in canadia...just dont upload! :)

    or supply them on the same disk with an emulator


    we even had a company in canadia, the poutine part, that would sell you "XBOX backups" for $5 each!

    I'm pretty sure the most of the Installer apps from the old days, DEVELOPED BY THE COMMUNITY, were not illegal or pirated. Yes, they voided your warranty, and yes, Apple didn't like it, but it's not unlawful as far as I know. Get off your high horse.
