    Being a part of a community means chipping in with help as well as asking for help when you need it and there's plenty of great members on iPod touch fans who do just this as they surf around the forums.


    However, it has been noted recently that we have a bunch of tutorials and stuck guides that are starting to look dated or, in the case of more recent developments, missing completely.


    We'd love to see more input from the community so we've set up a thread to discuss this issue where you can put in your tutorial requests and members interested in writing some guides have a pool of tutorial and guide topics.


    So, whether you're a seasoned iPtF member who's been with us since OS 1.1.1 or a newbie who got an iPod touch 3G for Christmas, if you've spent enough time messing around with your little bit of Apple tech heaven then you've got the prerequisite to help out and get your guide stuck and maybe even a front page feature.

    Guides That Need Updating or Adding To​

    Some of these are Kiks' guides that he is happy for others to update. Others are what we deem out of date and not being kept up to date by the original poster (OP). Feel free to strip these guides apart for your rewrite and use their contents as you wish. However please make sure you reference the original guide with a link in your update and give props to the OP.

    Note that any moderator written guide, apart from those mentioned below, should not be rewritten without the mods prior consent as many of them will be updated in the days ahead.
