After coming up literally 50/50 on google and such I'm dying to know the answer to this question:

If I develop an iPhone application will it work on both the iPhone AND iPod touch?

I've been googling this question and I see both yes and no answers and when I look for books for iPod touch programming on amazon iPhone programming books pop up or "How to use your iPod touch" books. From my understanding they both purchase from the same app store. Can someone please tell me a definite answer to my above question?

YES. They run the same OS.

Some apps won't work with first gen Touches, that's probably where the discrepancy is.

Also, bear in mind that the iPod touch has no camera, so be sure to check that the user is using an iPhone (via the UIDevice class) before using the UIImagePicker camera APIs.

Ditto GPS, so CoreLocation won't be particularly accurate.
