iPhone apps on iPod touch?
I have some questions regarding the new iPod touch, and while I know that this is the iPhone forum, the underlying software seems very similar, so I thought it would be alright.
If the iPod touch and iPhone run the same OS X, and has the same underlying hardware, how difficult would it be to run some of the iPhone apps on the iPod touch? I am primarily thinking of maps and mail.
One problem would undoubtedly be that the apps written for the iphone may try to access the non-existent phone parts of the iPod, which would probably crash them. Another thing is that I've read that much of the software on the phone is signed, but if the hardware is similar enough it might run anyway.
How about homebrew iPhone apps, like NES? Does anyone actually know anything about the hardware in the iPod?
What do you think? Does the iPod touch hav any potential, cause I'm planning on buying one ^_^.
