    Can anyone give me some advice on some good Ipod Touch apps? DW had me pick one up on Black Friday at Target and is my Xmas gift. Just trying to do some planning ahead and researching to find some good apps for it.

    What kinds of things do you want to do with it? There are so many apps out there, it's hard to figure out where to start. A few standards (for me, at least):

    TouringPlans.com Lines app
    WDW Maps (though this one is admittedly better on the iPad)
    Kindle and Nook e-book readers (allows you to purchase e-books from Amazon and Barnes & Noble)
    Google (folds in the mobile versions of gmail, google calendar, etc.)
    Facebook
    Foursquare (location check-in app)
    Facebook Messenger (Facebook IM client)
    Southwest Airlines (you can check-in to flights via your Touch)
    Trip Advisor
    Words with Friends
    Skype (will allow you to use your Touch as a phone with a WiFi connection)
    Netflix
    IMDb
    Flixster
    WeatherHD
    Yelp
    UrbanSpoon
    PayPal

    (I have a bunch of kids' games/activities on my iPhone, to use to keep my kids distracted in lines, waiting at restaurants, etc. Not sure if you want that kind of stuff on your Christmas Present Touch).

    Meanwhile, those should get you started. :)

    Thanks guys. I'm looking for a good combination of games, Disney apps and any other good useful apps. This is my first introduction to the apple brand and am looking for some guidance. I did recently upgrade DW to an apple iphone, but I haven't used it very often to see what it can do.

    PenguinLite

    Does the Subsonic app work for anyone else? I tried several times last night and this morning to get it to work and it just cycled between playing and reconnecting, no matter which station I selected.

    I get the same problem. It looks like they are having issues with their servers or something.

    One other thing. I only purchased the 8GB touch. Am I going to regret this at all, or will I have enough room for apps and music?

    Any good apps for a 2 year old girl? She loved the Santa app I had this year and I have an app called PaintSparkles which she loves. It literally is just fingerpainting on the screen.

    Other apps I like are:
    Flickhomerun - give it a chance, it becomes an addicting home run baseball game.
    Slotomania - This is actually a facebook app that they made into an Iphone app and connects to your facebook account. In case you couldn't tell it is slots.
    DisneyStore - As you might guess, it is the Disneystore shopping app. This was invaluable at christmas time for me.
    Instagram - love it for pictures!
    Angry Birds and Angry Birds Seasons - I am not a fan of Rio, but I have 3 stars on every level of Angry birds and Seasons (excuse the bragging).
    HorseFrenzy - My wife's favorite. You know that game at the carnivals where you roll the golf ball into a hole and your horse moves that many spots...yeah, that is this in an app.
    Pandora - Great music app. Has very limited Disney related music on it though.
    Subsonic - found the Disney music!
    Rogue Vertex Online - My friend's game he developed where I play with others to take over the universe. I might have gotten addicted.
    Disney Undercover Tourist - I like this app a lot. I store my ressies, get line times, view restaurant menus, etc.
    Countdown - It is a Disney countown app. Not sure that is the official name, but it does its job.
