Part of iPod touch For Dummies Cheat Sheet

If you’re looking for some fun on your iPod touch, head to the Apple Store. You’ll find tons of downloadable apps for your iPod touch. Whether you’re looking for free apps or are willing to pay for your fun, here’s a list to get you going:

  • Labyrinth LE: (Free) In Labyrinth, you tilt your iPod touch to roll a ball through a wooden maze to reach the goal without falling through the wrong holes. It’s addictive!

  • SlotZ Racer: (Not free) If speed is the issue, try SlotZ Racer, which lets up to four people race slot cars on a single iPod touch.

  • Virtual Zippo Lighter: (Free) It opens with a flick of your wrist or a swipe, and lights with a swipe of your finger or thumb — it’s the free Virtual Zippo Lighter app! The flame even sways as you move your iPod touch. It’s perfect for requesting an encore at concerts. You can pick several lighter designs and even customize a design with text.

  • ShoZu: (Free) ShoZu keeps you connected to more than 50 of your favorite sites, including Flickr, Facebook, and Twitter. You can upload images from your iPod touch to many of these sites and also send them to any e-mail address.

  • Pocket God: (Not free) You play god on a remote island, ruling over primitive islanders, striking them with lightning or feeding them coconuts as you prefer. Hey, it could happen, so be prepared.
