Will Firefox/Thunderbird install on an iPod?

Posted

I have Firefox/Thunderbird on Windows, and I'm considering buying an iPod. Can I also install on an iPod?

Chosen solution

Sorry, Firefox Home was discontinued (over a year ago) for the iPhone, and I'm not sure it was ever compatible with iPod, or not.

Apple's iOS platform is a "closed garden". They control software and App installation very tightly. If an App isn't compatible with WebKit, Apple won't let it into their "garden".

IMO, you would be better off getting an Android phone.

You can use Firefox Home on iPod. There's no Thunderbird available.

OK -- I'll just go with Apple, I guess.. I do have a reason for getting an iPod.
