    Hello all, I have a couple quick questions about the ipod touch 3g.

    First is there anyway i can run two apps at once without jailbreaking it? I really want to run a chat programme and something else (internet or game). What bout using something online like ebuddy.com, would that work in safari with tabs?

    Second i have an airport express so i would use that for my wifi, can the itunes version on the touch stream music to the express too?

    Thanks for the advice, if i could do both i'd defiantly get one next time i'm in the states. Trouble is it's hard to wait till the spring.

    I think the only 2 apps you can run at the same time is playing music and then almost anything else.

    As for your second question, at the risk of sounding cliche, there's probably an app for that.

    I recently did an experiment: I started playing a song in the Music app, then started a timer in the Clock app, then started playing a game. I found that all 3 worked at the same time.

    I'm speculating that multiple app running may only be allowed by Apple created apps so they can keep a close eye on the management of memory and stuff.
