Welcome to Apple discussions.
Ensure you have the latest version of iTunes, this will help.
Then, check your Touch's software version
Settings > general > version.
This needs to be 2.0 or higher. It should be 2.0+ if the Touch is the latest (2G) model.
If it is 1.1x etc. the Touch a refurbished model. If so you will need to update the software [HERE|http://www.apple.com/ipodtouch/softwareupdate.html].
Then check Settings > general > restrictions. Make sure these are off.
With these steps completed you should have an App Store icon on your Touch and see an "Applications" tab on the summary page when you connect your Touch to your PC.
You will need an iTunes/Apple account set up and method of payment activated (even for free Apps). Once this is done and you have synched your Touch you should be able to download Apps into iTunes or directly to the Touch via WiFi. Synching Apps via iTunes is relatively straight forward, choosing rules with check boxes and selecting the Apps you wish to install.
I, too, just purchased an itouch and do not have the application icon. I have followed every step you suggested, but nothing. I am able to download the apps to my itunes on my computer but it won't transfer over when i sync my itouch. when i attempt to access the apps store from WiFi on the itouch, nothing happens and it just gives me a blank screen.
Please help. Half of the fun of buying an itouch was to be able to have all these applications!!!
your software is definitely all up to date? (ipod AND itunes)
if you have just bought one, is there a particular reason why you bought a first gen and not a second gen? (wouldn't have thought that first gens were still available generally(
have you got the restriction settings on? (on the ipod - settings, general, restrictions)
