    The trick is to search for a known application like AIM then click on it. Click the app store sub section, and you'll see everything, pre download all the free things you want. Though you still can't use it on your iPhone or iPod touch YET.

    Or just click on the link below to start the fun :D

    Or go to Power Search. Then, select Applications, check the "Search for free applications" box, then click Search. :)

    Will these apps work even on 1.1.4? or will this just work on 2.0?

    Sadly, it still requires 2.0. So you'll need to wait for the unlockers to get into the scene.

    I have this one question pala that I can't find yet with a quick search. Anybody knows if applications you buy in iTunes is playable on an iPhone and an iPod Touch at the same time? Does it follow the same scheme for music where you can authorize another device?

    Yeah I figured it out while browsing for the free apps. I guess will just have to wait for our free 2.0 update + ZiPhone or Pwnage to announce that they have unlocked it :)

    I Think the free one is for sure, but the paid ones, I don't know yet... iPod games can be synced with 1 or more iPods though.
