    Is there a way to install Iphone only apps? I Itunes or the app is looking for the iPhone firmware...this making it not compatible. I didn't know if there was a way to work around that. I would love to have PhotoSwap on my Touch...

    You can install the ipa file. Unfortunately, that's all I can say about that because it's a legal grey area.

    no. according to the programmer of the app, he/she/they must have placed a mandatory <key> line in the app telling the app what hardware is compatible. eg, Shazam is capable of working on all devices but iPod Touch 1G, according to a certain <key> line. so, no you cannot install iPhone Only apps on iPod Touch.
