    Apple just started allowing legacy app downloads several weeks ago actually! I don't have a first gen iPod Touch, but now you should be able to get apps again if you have one. The way it works is when you go into the appstore and tap to download an app, it will allow you to download the last version of the app which supported your iOS version. So if the app never supported your iOS or lower version, then it's not one you will be able to download.

    unreliable

    I went to Europe hoping I could use it for email and receive email
    It failed me...my iCloud account was not getting any emails.
    Contacts were a year or more old.
    Internet would jump from one page to another. I would type Google.com
    and it would go to Google.fr
    It brought me to pages I had no intention of going to.

    I'm not sure it works back as far as 3.1.3....

    Well, not for my OG iPhone, anyway. :/

    I've got a 2nd gen also - 32GB - crammed full of music and sits permanently on my B&W Zeppelin, where it will stay until it dies.

    Legacy apps not applicable to anything less than 4.2.1

    Sadly.
    No benefit for the 1st generation iPod.

    Let me guess - you hadn't synced your content in about a year (hence old contacts)

    And Google.FR is GOOGLE FRANCE. Considering you're in Europe - that's normal behavior, Google redirects to local pages.

    I agree, if you've got an old spec iPod and it's nicely integrated with an accessory it's a shame to get rid of it. I've still got a 1st generation iPod Nano which fits perfectly into that chunky ruggedised IM9 speaker Altec Lansing used to make so if you can still use your early iPod Touch to keep doing what it did when you bought it then stick with it.

    Was there a Twitter app at the time that the iPod touch was released? Because I have the first generation, and I saw that the latest version of an app that was available for hat device can now be downloaded, but it won't let me. It tells me my software needs to be updated. It does this with every app that I've tried to download. Ones that I know we're available when the iPod touch first came out.

    I JUST pulled out and restored my 2nd Gen iPod Touch. Not sure how the battery life is but I'm planning on testing it out.

    As far as apps go I downloaded Facebook and Podcast apps. FB was terribly slow but I was pleased that Podcast App synched to the cloud and downloaded all my shows!

    I'm guessing you got the idea for this thread from the "do you still use your iPad 1" thread.

    I have 2 second gen iPod touches sitting in their boxes not being used. I am using an iPod touch 5 and an iPhone 5 right now:)

    Yes!

    About a year ago, I loaded whited00r onto my 1G iPod touch to try to upgrade its usability somewhat for my five year old daughter. Although I'm not sure the move to whited00r yielded any tangible results, I have been able to load it with a selection of movies and games that she likes.
