Now, just to make this clear, i know there are threads already like this. im looking into buying the ipod touch and have been since the 1.1.1 jailbreaking days. but now that the app store and having to buy the apps, is purchasing the ipod touch really worth it? i mean, like now that all the developers are most likely make people pay for their big apps and take it of repo's, is it still worth buying? im not going to lie but i dont buy ALL of my music, im not saying im a music pirate but i dont buy all my music so i dont normally get itunes cards or buy from apple, so, i still dont know if it is worth buying the touch if you have to pay for i think it was 90% of the apps... someone want to help out? im not looking for flame wars about pirating a couple of songs i just want to know if you think it is still worth buying... another thing im interested in is, how is the jailbreaking community going now that the app store is released? like how many devs have taken their apps off repo's and put them in the app store? i know this has gone in many thread before me but i just really want to know what will happen. and i also would like to comment on the paying thing. it seems like steve knew all along that paying for apps in the app store would deminish the jailbreaking comunity. just look at it from his point, "what can i do to stop the hacking?" well people love making money and seeing as there are already so many people making apps for the touch then why not make a store where you can buy those apps. its almost funny to see how money drives people to do things people sometimes may not particularly enjoy. like iPhysics, SSOO many people like that game and if they saw it on the app store for $10.00 theyd be dissapointed. even though they have no say in what goes into the store people will still be upset. im not trying to make the devs not put their stuff on the app store, we all know that each and every one of us wouldnt pass up an oppurtunity for money hahaha... wow that was longer than i expected... anyway, im just curious to see if devs will put all their stuff on the app store even for a fee. cause if you want to make money but dont want to pay for apps, make your own to sell... and i know this can be argued two ways as anything can but i dont want to start a flame war, a debate is fine, no flame wars please!!
