    I have an 8gb IpodTouch 4g and the memory is way to small so im going to get more memory but im not sure if 32gb will be enough or will 64 be too much.Ill only really be jail breaking and getting apps some big ones:apple:.

    I know a lot of people ask this question sorry.

    But please tell me what i should do.

    PS: I wont be getting any movies on it or music

    buy a 32gb android device. If you then need more memory, stick in a £20 SD card. Easy

    Get a calculator and add together the size of all the Apps plus data plus whatever else you want to keep on the phone. That will tell you which model to get.

    I would go with 32 GB. If you're not going to be putting any movies, music, or other media on it, and just a few large apps, then 32 GB should be sufficient. I just moved from 64 GB to 32 GB when I bought my new iPad as I don't watch movies either and I've been fine.

    If you buy a 32GB iPod Touch and decide it's not enough, you can return it within 14 days and get the 64 GB model.

    How can you expect us to know what you'll need when you don't know what you'll be running?

    I own a 64GB 3rd generation iPod Touch. I have about 50 movies, 90 audiobooks, quite a bit of music, a lot of ebooks, about 50 apps, and it still has 23.5GB free.

    I have gone on vacation and added more but never come close to filling it.

    Do I need 64GB, no. But it's great never contemplating how I'll manage my data. I never have to think about what I'll remove so I can add something else. I just drop and drag.

    If you have the extra cash, I highly recommend buying the 64GB.

    32GB, unless you'll be using high quality bit rate and a lot of music, and even then it's not guaranteed you'll need more than that.

    It really comes down to if you're willing to spend the extra cash.

    Since you're so worried about it, get a 64GB iPod Touch.

    Seriously, you're asking a question that only you can answer. You know what apps you're likely to download. You should be able to figure out how much space each one needs with its data. And since you said you have an 8GB unit, you can get an idea of how big some apps are from that.

    Since you're only going to put apps on there and no movies, i'd say 32 Gb is more than enough.
    I have a 32 gb ipod touch, with 4 movies and 120 episodes of the simpsons, and that's only 14 Gb.
    and if you have 32 Gb of apps, you're not going to use all of them, because that's a lot of apps! haha

    But like Bear already said: only you can answer this question.

    Since you seem incapable of figuring it out for yourself, why don't you just stick with the 8gb & make the most of it?

    32GB should be good enough (well I always get 32GB for iphone, ipod touch, ipad) and I tend to have a lot of apps, couple movies, 100 songs, some pics, etc. and I still have at least 6-8 GB left.

    Any storage above 8GB is a rip-off.

    over 140 apps and I still have space on my 8GB.

    Different people have different needs, so the extra storage is not a ripoff for those that need it.

    And to the original poster. That's why we can't help you size your iPod for you. Only you know what apps you're running.

    Maybe app-wise, but a lot of people store movies, tv episodes, podcasts, and music on their iPod. It eventually adds up, and if you have high bit-rate music, it adds up quickly.

    Also, apps do not use that much data.
