IPod touch 4th gen error on some apps

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I have downloaded some apps for my iPod, but when I open them, nothing happens and it just goes back to the home screen. Is there some bug in the iPod or is it with the download?

Hi Silas,

There are some applications which you can't run on some iPods. The cause is this, every iPod have not same or an updated firmware. To resolve this problem you have to check your iPods firmware software. If that is old that the application is unable to run on that, then you have to update your iPod firmware. 

You can update or download your iPod's firmware directly from the site and then install through the iTunes.

Update iOS on iPhone

Open Your updated firmware here and you can install that from here. 

Best Wishes.

Hello Silas,
It seems that the apps kept on crashing on your iPod and this could be caused by low memory on your device. Here are some things that you can do to take care of the problem:
1) Shut down all the apps running in the background (Including the app you are trying to use):
  • Double press the Home button.
  • Then a list of icons should appear at the bottom of your screen.
  • Hold down one of the icons until the icon shakes.
  • A minus symbol (-) should appear on each of the icons. Tap on the symbol to close the app.
  • Try your app again.
2) Reinstall the app you are having trouble with.
  • Delete the app.
  • Redownload it from appstore.
3) Restart your iPod
  • Hold down the power button.
  • Swipe to turn off should appear from your screen.
  • Then, Swipe it to shut off your iPod.
  • Switch it ON.
  • Finally, Try your app again.
4) If all of the above doesn't work then try syncing your device to iTunes.

It seems you are not checking if the app you install is compatible with your device. Installing apps on Android and iOS devices are just the same as with a regular computer. Before installing, you need to check if the application is compatible with your device. There are times apps don’t check the devices where they are getting installed to for compatibility.

That’s why you end up installing a useless program because it doesn’t work. You only wasted energy, time, and storage space. Since you are using an iPod, before downloading an app from the App Store, check the app’s supported devices and required operating system. You can find the specifications of the app on the left side of the page indicated by “Compatibility”.

Specifications of iOS app

Before downloading the app, check the required iOS version and make sure it matches the iOS version running on your iPod.
