Question: Because of the costs of the dataplans when buying an iPhone, I would like to use the cheaper iPod Touch instead for iPhone app development. What are limnitations for using an iPod Touch instead of an actual iPhone for app development?

Answer:
While the iPod Touch is without a carrier contract cheaper than an iPhone, there are some limitations for app development and what you can test:

  • telephone functionality (you cannot test calls, like from a clickable phone number in your app)
  • no 3G means also no geolocation
  • no testing of performance difference between WIFI, 3G and Edge
  • no testing of what happens to the status of your app, when you receive a call
  • iPhone 4: no availability of front facing camera
  • No labels
