No iOS fragmentation my arse
iPod touch 1st Gen has no mic. (and no facility to use the capsule one in an Apple headset), hence it can't run Voice Memos, Shazam, Guitar Tuner apps etc. So far, so reasonable.
What about a nice simple recipe app like "River Cottage Every Day", then? No particular hardware requirements there, yet it won't run on iPod touch 2nd Gen running iOS 4.2 - a pop-up window states that: "This App is Incompatible With This iPod touch. P2.requiredCapabilities.thisAppRequires"
What's that all about then, fanbois?
Oh, and my iPod touch 2nd Gen couldn't keep time for s*** up to OS 4.1 - constantly 10 minutes fast. Let's hope that is fixed in 4.2.
Off to watch to some embedded Flash video on my HTC Desire...
