    I just bought a Ipod touch for my elderly Chinese mom who is totally not a techie thinking MAYBE she will be able to listen to music and play a few games. Anyone aware of any chinese/cantonese app sites I can search, like chinese language games/utilities, etc. I tried searching Google but they mainly come up with how to learn Chinese. Thanks

    App Store. As far as I've seen, there are no repos or a lot of JB software of any type for Chinese speakers. Japanese, yes. Chinese, no.

    Just as an FYI, piracy is not allowed (which is what you're bordering).

    Like Jarlath said, the App Store. Jailbreaking doesn't provide many Chinese apps, so I'd stick to the App Store. Yes, they cost money.

    hey guys I was definitely NOT thinking piracy! I was thinking that it is often hard to search in the app store in Chinese so I thought there might be some websites where a collection of apps would be more easily found. thanks for the advice

    your other bet is also do the same with hk itune store in addition to searching in the usa itune store.

    there are songs of various hk and taiwan artist but they cost $.
    found...george lam, sally, paula tsui, danny chan, alan tam etc.... just search with their english or type in/or copy in their chinese name into the search bar.

    there is a free apps that let you get hk songs 1950-2010.

    how to write chinese into the internet screen. go to yahoo.com.hk click on the pencil, write in the word and click the selection to get it appear on the box, when finish highlight it and do a copy and paste to the place you want it to appear here the itune search bar. its that easy.
