New Apps on iPod Touch

I’ve just downloaded and installed the extra applications for the iPod Touch, launched at the Apple Keynote on Tuesday this week.

I know there’s a load of rumblings about having to pay for them. The whole thing does smack a little of Apple biting the hand of their early adopters. You would have thought they’d learnt their lesson after the iPhone price reduction scandal.

Having just experienced the customisable home screen with the jiggling icons and the fact that I now have mail, however, all I can say is that it’s a triumph of elegant, intuitive interaction design and I’m just going to ignore the particular line item on my bank statement. Denial and one click purchasing on the iTunes store is the only way.

Apple should start to learn some lessons and tread a careful path in this area in the future though.
