    Yes, it is possible. At least the Dev Team have suggested that it is.

    if your ipod is pwned and running beta firmware you can transfer your app from xcode into your ipod....without paying 99$

    The $99 is for uploading your App to the AppStore through Apple. Simple as that.

    Its Apple's way of making the developer seem trust worthy. They will check your app for quality, malware, and malicious code. If it passes, it goes on to the AppStore.

    If it is an Epic fail, you'll just have to refine it.

    When you put the apps onto your iPod/iPhone you have to sign into your developer account.

    That's what I'm worry about, because using developer account,Xcode will know that I'm not allowed to deploy apps into device. I think there should a hack to Xcode?

    Legally, you have to pay $99 to run the apps on your own iPod/iPhone and to have Apple review them.

    Hello World

    I want to go buy a MacBook Pro + iPod Touch, and on day 1, install and play with my new app on the iPod Touch.

    Is this possible?

    I don't care if it has to go through the store, as long as I can upload/download it right away.

    Or do I have to wait until Apple "accepts" me into the developer program, before I can get an app onto my own iPod Touch?

    Thanks,
    Mike
