    There are many apps on the ipod touch/iphone that drains the battery in less than 2 hours of constant use. Espcially 3rd party apps since their not optimized to conserve battery life.

    I find that the newest ver of gpsphone and NES drains the battery crazy, more than it did before

    Tap Tap Revolution will drain it decently.

    Obviously the biggest thing is having Wifi on though, but yes the NES and gpSphone do drain it quite a bit, I notice bigger drains with NES though.

    seriously though, i had around 80% battery life before playing the NES app and after using it for 20 min, i got the 20% battery warning, im worried that i got a defective battery, and this is my 3 rd ipod touch to get replaced..

    does these apps drain the battery life even when I don´t use them? Just because they are "there"?
    Or only if you use them?

    I have played iSolitaire for hours on end. The worst for me is YouTube. And also NES and gpsPhone. (or w/e it's called)

    gpsPhone, Safari, YouTube and Videos drain the most.
    Usually when i play pokemon on gpsphone my battery goes from 100% to 20% in 2/3 hours

    SSH. If it's on, your battery pretty much crashes and burns. Download services and turn it off when it's not in use.
