Apple (finally) has games for the iPod – but not a SDK or developer program (yet). Usually I run iPod Linux if I’m jonezing for that type of action on a music player (also see Rockbox), but like always I like to poke around and see what’s inside things, like the new IPG files (iPod games), last night I guessed that it was likely a ZIP file with stuff in it, but didn’t have time to explore much – luckily Ben did, here’s what he found… – “The .IPG file is actually just a ZIP archive. The archive contains many files, including AAC and WAV audio, XML, executables, language files, and more. I just started looking things over, but here are some of the interesting things I’ve found so far.” – Link.
It would neat if the iPod supported the Flash player or Processing, but who knows – maybe if there’s demand for portable mini-apps, games, etc. Apple will get on that, they eerily smart and if it will sell more iPod, they’ll do it. Perhaps iPod “Widgets”….
