Words with friends. (scrabble)Posted 6 years ago
Drop 7 (puzzle)
What’s app (enables free texts/pic messages real time)
eBay (bike bits)
iTorch 4 (self defence(has capability to blind))
Flickr (photo uploads)
Sky+ (control the box whilst you’re out)
Skype (talk for free ish)
Angry birds (the power of the app)
Millions of others you’ll download and never use!
Happy app storing
Cut the rope is my best friend at the moment, I don’t really want to buy the full version or the full version of Angry Birds. I’ll try out iTorch 4 now as I’ve got Flashlight+ at the moment and it’s too fiddly.
I need a whole bunch of free apps although I’m so tempted to purchase Final Fantasy III for like a fiver.
Post any tricks or tips, I feel like an old man at the moment not being up to date with technology. I can’t even organise all the apps I’ve downloaded.

Of the ones I use most:
Highways Agency – Boring but very good for traffic reportsPosted 6 years ago
Angry Birds and Backbreaker 2 – Both very good games that can and will kill a few hours
Facebook/Twitter – Good if you use them, useless if you don’t
Met Office – About as good as weather apps get and it is free
The Trainline – Train times
Flixter – Cinema times and reviews
Photosynth – Quite a cool tool for making photos
Convert Units – Another to file under boring but useful
Amazon and eBay – for buying stuff. The former has a very dangerous “1-click buy” function.stilltortoiseSubscriber
Loads of good ones but these are the ones I actually use:
Facebook – never “got” Facebook until I had it on a Smart Phone
iMovie – not free but an easy way to get quick edits done
You Tube – if I need to explain why then you don’t need it
NavFree – free Sat Nav for UK and Europe that works (but the map eats up at least 1Gb of your storage).
MapMyRun – great for logging runs/rides (Motion X Lite is good too, with more features, but doesn’t automatically upload routes to a web-accessed account)
TV Guide – I’m still on terrestrial TV and this is better than looking on Teletext or buying the Radio Times
Amazon – makes it VERY easy to buy stuff on-the-go
Met Office – for checking the weather forecast
Picasa Web Albums – this syncs your web albums to your phone and allows easy uploads, if you use Picasa
PS Express – good for basic picture editing, although the new iOS due out “soon” has better editing built in
Loads of other great fun apps too (check out Color Effects for example) but the novelty of them soon wears off.Posted 6 years ago
Tv catchup ( watch telly on the phone where you’ve got 3G or wifi)
Instagram (quirky photo altering software)
TipsPosted 6 years ago
1/If reading in bed lock the screen orientation, it stops it flicking from portrait to landscape view, do this by double clicking home button then slide to the right.
2/Hold the screen with one finger till it shakes you can then move apps, bundle them up etc
3/Press on/off button and home button (one bottom middle of phone) at the same time, it will take a snap shot of whatevers on the screen at the time. You can then email mms etc that shot, ie web page of new bike.
4/close apps it saves a bit of Battery, double click home then hold on to app, it will shake, them press the red cross.
5/it’s raining at work and I’m bored did anyone guess?
Hey all, I just bought an iphone 4 and I’m a complete nooblet with smart phones and saw that android app thread the other day so thought I’d ask what’s your favourite iPhone apps so I can try them out. I hear the apps are pretty much the same though?
Are there any tidy apps out there to do with cycling? Mountain Biking preferably.
Is there a cheeky way to get paid apps for free, like bluetoothing from a mate?
Spill your favourites! Cheers.Posted 6 years agoDrJMember
Jailbreaking sounds interesting after a quick google search
You risk bricking your phone, but hey, you’ll save several pounds in free applications, so go for it!! (*)
