Main reason is because Mapzen POI Collector needs a network connection
to upload the POIs to OSM. There is no support for offline / caching.
I guess if you had a wifi network you could upload the POIs that way,
but there aren't many places with ubiquitous WiFi.
If you email me at nick at cloudmade.com I'll see if we can get a build
made for iPod touch and you can test it out.
