    Got this new 16 iPod Touch, and I need to get some cool apps into it.

    What do you have in your touch?

    -I'm a musician
    -I love games

    so if you can recommend something, it'd be great!

    Simplify Media, Pandora

    A couple of Games
    Fire Words
    Trism

    You can get them through the Itunes store and then click on App Store.

    Good luck

    MobileChat is your best bet.

    To avoid making a new thread I hope you don't mind if I jump on this one.

    I will be getting mine in a few days as well and something I'd like to have is some way to have a screen for notes and have it display on the front screen. like a todo list notepad. Is there anything for that on app store yet? I figured since it's touch screen i can take advantage of writing with my fingers.

    At this time, Apple doesn't let you do anything useful with the "locked" screen. This stinks, and I hope they'll add that feature. I've seen that jailbroken iPhones and iPod Touches do have this ability, if it's worth it to you.

    YouNote is a great free note-taking app. You can type notes, draw notes, record notes (if you had an iPhone :mad:), take photo notes (also with iPhone), and even take notes based on location. Quite a good little free app.

    wait, so when there is a locked screen, what do you see exactly?

    Just a pretty picture, and the slider to unlock. If you were playing music before you locked the phone/touch, you see info about the song that was playing.

    how about security?

    is there any app. or perhaps a built in way of setting up privicy with out just locking the Touch?

    sort of a way of hiding all those inspirational photos your girlfriend sends :D

    You can set a passcode, so that everytime you wake up/turn on the iPod you are required to enter a 4-digit passcode.

    That might help with the pics...:D

    Try Texas Hold'em

    Reallife like animation, and you can play in different venues.

    is there an App yet where you can set a home screen background? JB-ing is not an option

    not yet, as apple does not allow developers that much functionality with the SDK. perhaps in the future...

    as for the OP's question: check out instapaper free. it is pretty much an app that allows you to save webpages to your touch to read when offline. it's fantastic when you are in a place without wifi and need to catch up.
