I don't know about firmware 2.0 but on all previous versions we had limited space available for 3-rd party apps and we had to use BossTools to move apps to the Media folder.

How it is now with 2.0? Any limitations of space available for apps?

In quickly looking at the App Store via iTunes this morning, it appears that many apps are only 1 MB or less. Yes, you read that correctly - less than 1 MegaByte. Super Monkey Ball was much larger, but still only 35 MB. A number of other graphic-heavy games seem to range from a few MB's to 50 some MB.

In other words - a 16 GB iPod touch or iPhone should be able to handle dozens or more games and apps with no issue. I suppose apps may get more bloated as more features get added, but that is pretty standard.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for reply, but you didn't read my question - all pre-2.0 firmware versions have a limit of total of ~300 MB for all applications.

Is there any limit for apps on 2.0?

Didn't Apple say the limit for Apps was 2GB?

Doesn't seem like there should be a limit, only limited by the total memory of your iPhone. It would be like Apple saying your music limit is 2GB, for example.

A single app may be no more than 2GB.
