I have a PC app written in C++ if/how can I port it to work on the iPoT. Would it be easy?
Impossible piece of cake !
I have compiled c++ apps over to iPod and they were only hard when they depended on extra libraries.
If you don't have much experience with compilers, though, it could be tough. Having a solid background with gnu 'configure' concepts, and the know-how to edit a makefile and knowing how to fix hardcoded includes and libraries is often necessary.
If the application you are porting is graphical you most certainly will have your hands full. I would not attempt porting a GUI app unless I had a macintosh and applications experience along with it.
Its not GUI, it requires keyboard input though - can that be implemented or will it be too tough?
you should tak to a ipod touch dev and ask them how thay use keyboard input
Download the App-a-Day source Code. Contains a lot of useful functions and concepts of doing different things with the touch.
