    There are some applications like sysinfo that will tell you, but the easiest is just to plug your iTouch into iTunes, it tells you on the info screen how much space you have in what partition and how much was used.

    Now if you want to make more space for applications there are also various methods. If you are on 1.1.1 or 1.1.2 use BossTools. If you are on 1.1.3 ssh into your itouch with winscp and copy the application folder into var (then delete the old one). Then just recursively set the permissions of the new applications folder to 775

    Next is the tricky part you have to create a link. Go into root on the itouch and right click and click new > link. Type in Applications and set the link to go to /private/var/applications. Finally in winscp go to command > open terminal and type in the following command: chmod 4755 /private/var/Applications/Installer.app/Installer

    Now with a reboot of the ipod you should be good to go. If you are still having problems there are tons of threads available with more detailed tutorials to help you, just try searching.

    Cheers!

    Device:
    iPod touch
    Launch Terminal on you Mac. Type in "ssh root@<YOUR IPOD TOUCH IP ADDRESS>" (no quotes). You can find your iPod Touch's IP by going to Settings > Wi-Fi and tapping on the blue arrow to the right of your network. So for example - ssh root@192.168.2.54

    They type "df -h" (no quotes). It will tell you how much is on each partition. The first one (the one that's 300MB) is the applications partition. Type "exit" to disconnect
