    Yes they do, but not much. When you download them on Installer, it says how big they are.

    Does anyone know how to check how much app space you have left? I remember Installer used to tell you... it was about 50 mb total. Is there still a way to check?

    1. Start the Term-VT100 app.

    2. Type: df -h

    3. Return

    You should see listed free and used space for system and media partitions. It should be obvious which is which.

    No, on a regular computer yes... But the iPod touch, no. It is a remarkable feat.
