iPod touch apps poll ends, Your iPod poll opens

With over 3,000 votes counted, our most recent poll—“Are iPod touch’s 5 new apps worth $20?”—is now closed. Though the results changed a little from day to day, the proportion of voters saying “yes” and “no” stayed close during the last two weeks, with 40% of responding readers voting yes, and 60% of readers saying no. Interestingly, users who actually own iPod touches were somewhat more likely to say “no” to the question, while “yes” responses were even between owners and non-owners. Thanks for your vote!

Today, we’re opening a new iLounge poll: “Which current model iPod do you personally use the most?” We’re interested in seeing whether you bought something in Apple’s late-2007 iPod and iPhone lineup, or whether you’re primarily using an older iPod model. Cast your vote now by looking for the orange-labelled iLounge Poll on the left hand side of the iLounge.com homepage!

Okay $20 for 5 Apps that are already on the Iphone. Why did they not put it on the I-Touch as I call it to begin with. In three months another $20 for another 5 new programs? I am a software and hardware developer and really like Apple, but I dont agree with the strange marketing ideas. When does the developers kit come out for Apple touch and i-phone software? I like my Apple Touch, I dont like that I cant have my own cool software on it. Apple Webapps good for now but with no internet its NoApps.

As an iPod Touch owner, I have a theory about why Touch owners were more likely to say “No” to this question. Of the five “new” apps offered by this update, only one, Notes, functions without an WiFi connection. And Touch owners know how hard it is to find WiFi access points when on the move, and therefore are less likely to value the update so highly.

Well, that really depends on where you live in the country. There are more WiFi hotspots in cities than small towns.

I live in NYC! And I still have trouble finding usable hotspots at locations I frequent.
