Get your game face on.

The App Store features over 1 million apps, many of which are free. That includes over 260,000 games and entertainment apps.* So you can go head‑to‑head with millions of other gamers in Game Center. No wonder iPod touch is the world’s most popular portable game player. You’ll wish you had more fingers.

Great updates. Even to updates.

Now you can easily find apps that are relevant to your current location. Browse categories of apps based on your child’s age. And let the App Store update all your apps for you.

Apps Near Me

Wherever you find yourself — the Louvre, for instance — tap Near Me and you’ll see a list of apps you might find useful, including everything from the museum’s app to travel guides and more.

Apps for Kids

The new Kids category helps teachers and parents find age‑appropriate apps for children. It’s curated by our editors, who search the App Store for the best apps in each age group — up to 11 years old.

Auto Updates

Updates have always been easy and free through the App Store. And now they automatically download in the background. So you’ll always have the latest versions of all your apps.

Not just a million apps. A million great apps.

Shopping the App Store is a great experience because it’s easy to find the apps you want — and to discover new apps you didn’t even know you wanted. Browse freely by category. Or shop collections of apps and games handpicked by experts. Apple reviews everything on the App Store to guard against malware, so you’re buying and downloading from a trusted source.

Built for iPod touch

Apps in the App Store are designed to take full advantage of the advanced technologies in iPod touch — like the A5 chip, Retina display, gyroscope, and accelerometer.

Categories and Collections

Discover new apps by browsing categories such as Business, Social Networking, and Travel. Within a category — say, Travel — you’ll see sections like Best New Apps and Essentials, as well as collections like Road Trip, Apps for the Weekend, and Apps for the Great Outdoors. So it’s easy to find apps you might enjoy.

One Trusted Source

The App Store has more than 1 million apps and counting.* Many of them appear on the App Store first, before they’re available anywhere else. And you’re buying and downloading from one trusted source — not multiple stores.

Apps for whatever you’re up for.

A new game or a new photo collage maker. Something to help you track down your favorite food truck or help you keep track of your soccer training. For all the incredible things your iPod touch already does, there are thousands more waiting for you at the App Store.
