What are 3rd Party Applications?3rd Party Applications are essentially software programs for your ipod. They are generally (but not always) programs written by independent developers for none profit. Unfortunately apple “locked out” the iPod touch therefore its not as easy as just downloading the app or game you want and adding it to the iPod. However recently some very talented and dedicated programmers came up with a hack to add the 3rd applications.
More than just 3rd party apps and games also apples Iphone Programs.
Apart from lods of brilliant games and independent applications there are great apple application that apple put on the earlier released Iphone but decided not to put on the iPod touch, the reasons for this is widely debated, but in my opinion I would say it is because apple wants to distinguish the ipod touch from the iphone(the one apples see as its premium product). The apple apps that could be add include a fully editable calendar, notes, weather program, maps, and a few other programs.
