Top Five Things I Wish iPod Touch Had…

Posted by Justin Morley on February 3, 2008

5I was just sitting here, using the iPod touch, and things just kept coming up that I wish that it had. Here is my top five!

1. Flash – So many things use Flash, come on Apple, give it to us!

2. Copy and Paste – So, theres a URL I want to copy and paste from a webpage; can I do it? NO.

3. The Ability To Watch Videos from other places then YouTube – Yes, YouTube is nice, but there are so many other good video host’s that I would love to be able to watch from. Break, Metacafe, etc…

4. In Safari, when you go to another web page, the first one loses its cookies – I’m using Meebo, I go to another web page, and when I come back to it I have to re-login. This makes me SAD!

5. Video camera/Camera – I know this sounds REALLY far-fetched, but I really wish I could record video and take pictures on it. With the biggest screen out of all the iPods, recorded video would look really good, you could email pictures right through it from the Mail application, and you could immediately set it as the unlock screen background!

    If the iPod touch had these features, I’d scream my fangirl scream really, really loud. Not that I have a fangirl scream… *cough*

    [FIRMWARE] The Answers to ALL Your Questions in Regards to Firmware 1.1.3 (Jailbreaking, SDK, iTunes 7.6, ect.)

    Posted by Jody Mitoma on January 22, 2008

    all questions answeredHey all! Earlier this morning I was surfing the ipodtouchfans forums, and was getting fed up seeing the same questions being asked over, and over, and over again.

    So, knowing that this would just go on if nothing was done, I made a thread, which I named “[THE ANSWERS] to *ALL* your questions in regards to the iPod Touch Firmware 1.1.3“. By the name of the thread, you should already know what the initial thread post consists of…

    Anyway, I figured, I might as well share this with my Touch Podium readers as well, seeing as it is in fact a very in-depth, useful FAQ.

    So here it is!

    When was firmware 1.1.3 released to the public?
    Apple released the 1.1.3 firmware right after their MacWorld 2008 KeyNote, on January 15th, 2008.

    What exactly does the 1.1.3 firmware do?
    Actually, version 1.1.3 of Apple’s iPod Touch firmware doesn’t do a whole lot a good to the average user. The firmware fixes a few bugs here and there, and makes it harder to jailbreak. It also places the files and folders required to run the “App Pack” onto your iPod, but does not allow you to actually run them until you actually send Apple Inc. $20.00 through iTunes 7.6 for the pack itself. Oh, and it also gives you a less stylish dock image.

    [GAMES] Top 12 Games That Should Be Ported To The iPod Touch!

    Posted by Jody Mitoma on January 22, 2008

    LineRiderNow, there are a select few games (TTR, Labyrinth, iSolitaire, iPhysics…) available on the iPod Touch that can pass up the time, however, there is still much room for improvement. Here is a list of 12 games that should definitely be ported to the iPod Touch (and none of that ‘web app’ shit). Hopefully the SDK will bring some of these to the table within the next couple of months. Unfortunately, most (if not all) of the games listed below are flash based games, which the iPod Touch currently does not have support for. We can only hope that we eventually get Flash support in future firmware updates.

    So, without further ado…

    Here are the top 12 games that absolutely must be ported to the iPod Touch! (I’ve also provided a link to either the game itself or a screenshot of the game in action for each).

    Here’s to hoping that future firmware will have Adobe Flash support, making every game listed above, possible!
