    I've updated my ipod to version 1.1.3 but for the life of me can't seem to install the new apps? Can someone guide me through the process please? :D

    Yeah. I couldn't find it either. Someone responded in my thread and gave me this link which worked: https://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZFinance.woa/wa/touchLandingPage

    NOTE: You have to sync multiple times following this purchase *and* you can't have manually manage files checked. This will delete all movies and music you have on your iPod. Teh suck.

    EDIT: beaten to it

    Hey sure.

    - Update to 1.1.3 (Free version)
    - Update to iTunes 7.6 (apple.com/itunes/download)
    - Plug iPod touch in
    - Goto the iTunes Music Store
    - On the hompage you should see a box with an ad on it for 'January Software Update'
    - Click it
    - Click 'Purchase Software' or 'Buy'
    - The applications will be downloaded to your account
    - Simply select your iPod from the left pane in iTunes (under devices)
    - and click 'Sync' on the summary tab in iTunes

    Hope this helps. Oh - and only click the buy button once .. even if the download fails, your charged everytime you press it (common sense really - but I was charged 3 times - now being refunded by iTunes, kindly)
