    i know this has already been posted somewhere i just can seem to find it, i just got a touch and i want to know how to delete an app completely. not just from my homepage but so that it isnt taking up space any more.
    thanks.

    When you delete them off the home screen they're completely gone.

    Connect the iPod to iTunes. When the screen showing your iPod's details appears, select the tab at the top of the screen that says "Applications" and you can select the apps that you want to be synced to your iPod. If you don't check an app, it won't be copied to your iPod and therefore won't take up any space on it.

    I think it's something with the 2.2 update, it's been happening to myself and many others too. The Facebook app especially has become horrible to use.

    The most that can be done is to try a restore of the iPod (which downloads the software and reinstalls it)...I really hope Apple gives us a fix soon, because it's incredibly annoying.

    just wait for the apps to be compatible with 2.2, a lot of apps i have have been updated to 2.2 and now they work fine and some still don't
