Wait until the app is done installing, then press the home button to go back to the springboard. Your new app has been downloaded.

If the app does not open/crashes, try a different link from the link selection. 

Updating Apps
Go to the "Update" section. Tap on the app you want to update. It will be at the same download screen as before. Click the green download button, and this time choose the new updated version and choose a link from that. Then continue downloading the app.

Continue through the procedure above and your app will be updated. 

Syncing With iTunes
If you sync your jailbroken iPod touch and it has apps downloaded from Installous, make sure you download AppSync in Cydia.  That way your cracked apps won't be deleted when syncing. Remember to transfer purchases (which you really didn't do) to transfer your cracked apps.
