    no you don't need wifi to run most apps. maybe you didn't allow it to download fully yet. Or look on the second page by dragging the screen to the left. If not, try using itunes to download whatever apps you want, then sync it to your ipod touch

    btw, we discourage text speak here. please type normally.

    I think reading its manual will not be a waste of time!
    Anyway, iPod manuals are too easy to understand.

    @kingcleo:
    1) In itunes, in applications, is the game there?
    2) In iTunes, under your iPod Touch, click the Applications Tab. Is the game/app listed there with a check mark?
    3) In order to load the app/game onto your Touch, you need to synch it with the synch cable in order to load it onto the Touch.

    1. What game/app did you download in the first place?
    2. Was the download successful?
    3. Did you sync your iPod Touch with your iTunes?
    4. Is the app/game compatible with your iPod Touch?
    5. How many screen pages does your iPod Touch have at the moment? Maybe it's in the other page.
    6. Some free apps/games are ad-supported. As such, some of them require an internet connection to work. They're ad-supported, which is why they're free. The internet connection is for the app to be able to access and display the ads.

    If you don't see an app that you know you've tried to download and you have a ton of apps already installed, you might be running into the maximum limit of apps that can be installed on the iPod (ie, 9 pages of apps, or around 129 third party apps give or take). Try deleting an app you don't need - this will immediately start the installation of the app you just tried to install.

    It depends on the Apps and not on App Store actually... Just read the requirements of the apps you want to buy/download in the iTunes Store. Most games don't require wireless connection by the way.

    what i meant bout web apps is the apps you can access trough apple.com..web apps can only be used with the use of the web.. hence the name..you can put the web app on your iphone like a bookmark..
