    sup guys. just gotta touch (2nd gen) yesterday, few things i need help with.

    1. what is the best app to strenghten wifi signal? i got one that was stupid, needed to be connected for it to even work - kind of defeats the purpose.

    2. is there an app that will remember all of my passwords? it gets annoying throwing my itunes pw in all the time.

    3. i would like to add my microsoft outlook email account to the touch, and it is not letting me, is this possible? or could maybe my network be blocking me from doing so/

    4. if i am on the net, or using pandora or something... can i navigate away from that app/site so that the music is still playing and go do another app?

    sorry if these are retarded questions, but i admit im a noob to the site

    1. Your not going to find an app to strengthen wifi, apps can't run in the background.

    2. There is nothing that will autofill your itunes password for you when purchasing applications, safari in 3.0 will offer to autofill passwords in the browser though.

    3. Outlook is just an e-mail client, what service are you using for e-mail? You just need to find the proper settings and it should work.

    4. You cannot, Apple feels they know whats best for you so you will need to jailbreak it to be able to run apps in the background.

    You said your using outlook for e-mail, but what service are you using? Yahoo mail, gmail, hotmail etc...

    on the touch? i was going to use microsoft exchange, because thats the only one i would think is compatible. outlook is my work email, and its the main email i would like to access on the touch. would i be able to get access to it? or should i try to set up a rule to have everything forwarded to my yahoo mail

    You should be able to access it if you have the correct settings and your work allows it.

    Strengthen Wi-Fi?

    I have never heard of an app to do how would that even work? Hope you didnt pay for the previous one.

    Wi Fi strength depends on the hardware, you're not going to be able to get any software that does it.
