Default How to Find Out the Generation of an Ipod Touch

Hey guys. I met this really cute chick and we have been talking a lot lately and she saw my iphone with all the themes and stuff cause its jailbroken and she told me if I could do the same for her ipod touch. She says she got it recently but Im not sure if its a 2nd Generation or 3rd Generation. On the back of the ipod it just says 32GB and I went on the settings - about page and I couldnt find anything. How can I find out which Gen her ipod is? Thanks for the help. I posted this here cause more people see it. Thanks!

EDIT: If she has the Voice Memos app on her ipod, does it mean that its the 3rd Generation iPod Touch?

"The iPod touch (Late 2009) can be distinguished from iPod touch (2nd generation) by looking at the back of the device. All iPod touch models introduced in Late 2009 have two or three lines of text below the capacity engraving. The prior iPod touch (2nd generation) had four lines of text or more."

The third generation 32GB model has voice control. The 2nd generation one doesn't.

Hold home button for two seconds, then if it brings you to the voice control screen it is 3rd gen.

Voice memos isn't 3rd gen touch only thing, and make sure you have a microphone headphone before trying voice control.

Oops......lol I had it the other way around, I didn't think it was, but edited it because I found an article saying that it was.

Try playing AC2. If it sucks, it's probably a 2nd.

I don't think this is the best way of impressing her
