Default Is it possible to transfer apps to another ipod touch?

Hi, I was wondering if its possible to transfer game apps and their save data to a new ipod touch 2g? I have a 32gb ipod touch 2g and want to duplicate the game apps and saves to a new touch. I tried searching, but found no info on this. Is this possible? Is the save games tied into the unique id of each ipod? Thanks very much in advance.

I don't think you can transfer the saves, but you can transfer the games themselves. Sync your ipod touch to your computer to transfer all your apps onto the itunes library. then just sync your other ipod touch to the same computer and sync. I don't think the game saves will transfer, but I am not sure.

Not sure, but if it were possible, you'd likely have to SSH all the files over.
Just drag and drop anything associated to each app from your old iPod to your new one, but I dunno if there is a specific save file[s].

Try it out

Thanks for all the advice! Could you please walk me through the process of transfering all data over to a new ipod touch? Save game states would be preserved in the transfer too?

Can't you back up your iPod and then import that into your iPod?

Use the backup from the old device and restore the new device to it. It will keep everything on it, except app placement. Same page that you had open in Safari and everything.

1 Attach an iPod USB computer cable to the first iPod. Connect that iPod to the computer.

2 Open iTunes if it doesn't automatically open. If you don't have iTunes, you can download it for free on the Apple website. The first iPod should be listed under "Devices" on the left panel of the iTunes screen.

3 Connect the other iPod to the computer using the second iPod USB computer cable. It will also appear under "Devices" in iTunes.

4 Select everything except music files on the first iPod to copy and paste to the second iPod. Once everything has been completely transferred, there will be a pop-up message to let you know it is complete.

5 Open "My Computer" on a PC or "Finder" on a Mac and select the first iPod. Copy the iTunes Music folder. Then select the second iPod and paste the copied folder in its iTunes music folder. Wait for the completion message before disconnecting.

And here a similar step-by-step tutorial may help you transfer:

Hope it can do you a favor.
