    Hey guys,

    I'm trying to start up a game for games and web apps that work on the IPod Touch and IPhone. Check out what I have so far:
    http://www.playthetouch.com/
    This is my first site and I was really hoping I could get some advice on how to improve it. Right now I'm looking for some more games to put on it, but besides that I'm running low on ideas. Also, I'm going to try to make it more IPod touch-friendly, but I'm not quite sure how to go about that. Any help would be awesome!!!

    Thanks,
    teubs

    Dude, you rock! I love the iseek app, it's cool to be able to look up an artist on the fly and listen to their full song. I haven't tried the games yet, but I like this site so far, you could optimize the main menu more for the touch though, I have to zoom in to click on the links.

    Optimization

    Hey guys,

    I could really use some help optimizing my site for the IPod Touch. I just finished making the buttons larger, on the menu, and in the games page. I'm planning on shrinking my header, but besides that I'm running low on ideas for how I can best change it. Check out what I've done so far http://www.playthetouch.com/. I would really appreciate some advice.

    thanks,
    teubs

    Is it intended to be a forum or a brochure site because it reads like a forum. Look at other sites that advertise the product, they dont address "hey guys, look what I found", they state the product and optionally a brief description of the app. Pick one, forum or brochure site.

    I can see what you're going for and I applaud you. If you're going for the web 2.0 look (which is a contentious issue as to what that defines) start by using complimentary colors, you have some conflicting colors there. There are plenty of sites that have color wheels and primary/composite color tools for free.
    The fonts are fine and I think it will flow better once you tidy up the menu bar.

    Otherwise, a good start. :)

    Are there any chess games that have decent UI? Everytime I play I roll the computers, they all get really boring. :(
