Short answer is no.

It also depends on which iPod you are talking about.  I would assume you are talking about the iPod Touch.

Most apps which work on the iPhone will also work on the Touch, but not all.  After all, the iPhone has more capabilities than the touch.  The main ones which will not work would be related to calling/SMS messaging and GPS.

The same is true for the iPad.  Not everything for the iPhone will work for the iPad.  Different hardware and capabilities.

ipod has no internet connection except wifi. so maybe you can install the program , but is useless.

Some programms really don't work on ipod.

the programm you want needs the compass function. so you need to find out what ipod you have and if it has a compass.

The application mentioned, Jerusalem Compass, requires GPS to function correctly.  Therefore, it will not work with any iPod or the WiFi only iPad.

I think this has mostly been covered but I would like to add that yes, iOS apps are meant to work across all iOS devices (some will only work on certain versions of iOS), however functionality may not be full or it may not work at all if the device is missing hardware needed to run the app.

For that app in particular, as awaggoner said it may not work because of the ipod not having built in GPS. That said, it can get location from wifi and that may work.

I think if you are wanting to use geo-enabled apps, something like a GPS cradle would be a nice investment. *see link below
