    Ok so we've all jailbreaked our ipod touch's and we are all installing some really great 3rd party apps.

    BUT... Are these really safe? How do we know that they are not tracking your ipod touch web surfing? recording your userid / passwords / recording your wifi itunes userid / password..

    What do we think? Safe to install 3rd party apps?

    Who's "they"? Also, the standard sources and "repo" so far are the most trusted, you can get by with just those.

    There has only been one report of a trojan and you have to manually add that source.

    Safe. Any bad sources (very few that exist) can be Googled or looked up on these forums. Basically, before you install something, look it up if youre worried.
