    Guys about to sell my ipod touch and have bought loads of apps for it. Is it possible to wipe my old ipod touch and sell it and then when I buy the new one sync all my apps or would I have to buy them all again?

    Thats what I'm worried about that my apps will have to be bought again. Not bothered about my music as I only buy CD's then rip them to my ipod. Think I would cry if I had to buy them again.

    I'm not 100% sure, as I'm not an iPod expert.
    I think it may depend if you downloaded them on iTunes and then sync'd to the iPod, or if you downloaded then directly on to the pod.
    I've got a bit of both. But if I try to sync my apps it tries to remove any from the pod that aren't on iTunes.

    I know that apps are sync'd on the iPhone/iTunes but not sure about the iPod.

    Your apps are saved locally, so you can just drag them onto your new Ipod via the apps tab in the "XYZ's Ipod" menu

    firstly, make sure itunes has ALL your apps
    right click the ipod icon and click transfer purchases, this will make sure any apps purchased on the itouch are also in itunes

    you can then safely sync any new itouch with your apps


    I've had 3 iPhones and now an iPad and they all synced just fine :)

    Cheers guys for confirming it was a tad worried that I would end up having to buy all my apps and games again.

    It's just like a PC to be honest, what app would you buy for one of those? You can get almost anything on there really. Games are very popular and some of the better ones do cost, but there are plenty of freebies also. There is also a huge variety of non game apps and some make very clever use of some of the phone features (being able to locate where you are, motion sensitivity etc...)

    I really like my iPhone, but wouldn't have bought one for myself (it's a work phone). As good as it is though, I can't stand Apple as a company I think some of their business practices are particularly ropey. Especially some of the recent moves to limit developers with the new T&C's desgined to kill off code which has been translated from other platforms. And obviouslsy designed to kill off anything remotely flash based, since Apple or rather Steve Jobs now has it in for Adobe.

    As for iTunes, don't get me started. It's the one major disadvantage to owning an iPhone / iPod in my opinion. I like to think of it as the worst peice of software I have ever had the displeasure of using (and yes I'm including Windows ME in group also :) )

    I have heard a lot of good things about some of the new smartphones (andriod & win7 mobile based). I think one of those might be good as my next work phone.
