    Jailbreaking lets you download third party apps and themes, The bad thing about jailbreaking is that you can brick your phone and apple can void you warrenty. But most jailbreak problems can be fixed with a restore.

    Third party apps are made by other companys you can find third party apps in the app store but he is talking about apps that apple hasn't approved, themes and the likes. It's mostly done for added functionality or unlock, you can get the third party apps from cydia, icy, and rock.

    if you jailbreak your ipod touch 3rd gen, you will have to do a tethered jailbreak, which will mean every time you reboot the device, you will need to jailbreak again.
