Bloody Virgin have still not delivered our new cable modem, hence i've been offline at home for almost a month.

However, I'm now using PDANet to connect by tethering via USB. Works really well. Did have a few teething problems initially as something on Winterboard had b0rked, but deleting and reinstalling Winterboard fixed it and I'm steaming along at a whopping 30KB/s now :)

iMapmyrun is smashing for runners. Uses the iPhone's GPS system to record the distance you run, average speed and time and all that and enables you to upload it to your account online so you can manage your training.

And it's free. Lovely.

(Takes up a bit of battery when using it mind)

Been using Runkeeper, and its very good.
Reviews suggest it is slighty better, but will give iMapmyrun a try

KingsleY 02-07-2009 12:08 AM

Not even needed to have a run with imapmyrun, not as nice as runkeeper in my opinion.
Website far too clunky, runkeeper gives you exactly what you need and nothing else.

Example of runkeeper: http://bit.ly/P8f4w

Baloo 02-07-2009 08:13 AM

I agree about Runkeeper - after trying a few of the running apps out (though not imapmyrun), it is definitely the best one of those I tried.

dee eff 02-07-2009 08:19 AM

I've used both and I've found Runkeeper to be more reliable and easier to use.

SpikeyMatt 02-07-2009 06:50 PM

Tried Runkeeper this evening for the first time and found it much better than iMapmyrun.

Cheers for the heads up on that one chaps.

Became available later, 'modified' to 2.99 :(

Comic Reader Mobi (not Mobile, just Mobi)

First class comic book reader. You need to install a sync tool from their website too, but reads .cbr files fine (bizarrely some iPhone comic book readers don't) and is a fantastic smooth app. Got the whole sandman and watchmen on my phone now :)

Costs 8.99 though iTunes mind.

Seems hard to find good new apps. My favourite at the moment are bejewelled 2 and 2 Across. Stanza is good for reading books, comic reader mobile for comics. National Rail is used daily. Touch Physics and Fieldrunners are fun.

your best off looking through this thread rather than the app one as several have had this problem but from wahat i remember
you can either transfer all your numbers to your sim and put it in your new phone - sometimes works or if you have a mac sync your old phone with your mac and then copy the address book to your iphone when plugged in to your computer

Works a treat :) Slightly annoying in that the app itself shows how many new messages you have, whereas you still go into mail to read them. But then the messages pop up like sms alerts on your screen anyway, so you know you've got them.

Very happy! Just need to get google calendar to sync with the iPhone calendar now, as haven't got round to doing that yet.

Bad news is gpush just doesn't work. Did at first, but now I rarely get pop up notifications, and often don't even have the number of mail messages show up. They are working on it, so hopefully it will all be ok!

Has anyone tried any of the navigation software? I know TomTom finally came out yesterday, but is 60. Co-pilot is 25 and seems to get fairly good reviews, and then there is Navigon

James 20-08-2009 08:50 AM

I have discovered the best reason yet to Jailbreak the iPhone. At last - Flashplayer on the iPhone 3g!

Now I can watch TV on the BBC IPlayer in brilliant quality. Why on earth Apple are so opposed to allowing adobe to enable flash on Safari is a mystery, as the technology has been available for some time. However, unless and until Apple changes its collective mind, Jailbreaking is the way to go.

You need to install imobile cinema from the Cydia store (free) - following which flash video on the iPlayer becomes available (as does a whole host of other video applications).

Have a look HERE for a few more details and some screen shots.

I've used both tomtom and navigon on the iphone (not extensively but for a few journeys) and honestly wouldn't recommend them. The applications are fine but the GPS on the iphone is to slow and they typically run about 4 seconds behindwhere you are actually travelling which is a pain in the ass.

I suspected as much. Will be interesting to see what TomTom's GPS boosting cradle is like. Seems to be priced at 113 though, so you'd hope that includes the bloody software. Otherwise might as well just buy a separate device.

James 20-08-2009 09:48 AM

I like Navigon (although it is grossly overpriced) and have found the included maps to be very useful where there is no 3g connection available.

Like all Navigation Applications it really draws on the battery (even when charging from the car's power supply, the battery runs down), but I have found it to be responsive and accurate.

The player is far better - and you haven't been able to play flash video on your iphone before. Have a look at Google Video for example.

BulletEagle 20-08-2009 09:58 AM

Sky Sports Live Football is good. Basically SSN's Soccer Saturday but on an iPod or iPhone, it gives you current tables, scores, vidiprinter, line-ups, photos. All live of course.

Out of interest, does it then allow you to use Chennel 4 Ondemand ( the Ch4 version of iPlayer), which I think is flash based?

I never think I can be bothered to jailbreak if I need to go trhough it each time there is an update to the OS. IS it really that worthwhile, and hassle free? If I'm really honest, although it'd be noce to have some of the extra stuff, is it really that much of a difference?


As for the Sky football score app - agreed, its exceptionally good if you have bets on a few matches, as you can see them all in one go. Goes well in tandem with the iPhone optimised betfair site......

richdeniro 20-08-2009 10:39 AM

Goooal - Push updates for goals as they go in, you choose the teams you want to receive them for and Palace are listed.

No, though it says you need to upgrade the flash player and gives the option to download from the adobe page for Mac OS X operating system.

Any idea if this is safe to do James?

Two strong recommendations. The first is GEARED - 80 levels of challenging gameplay. Try the FREE VERSION first if you are not sure.

Unlikely as it seems, is there a decent Football/Championship Manager type game available?

Heb 7:4 05-09-2009 02:25 PM

Gamewise Bejeweled 2 is by far and away the most used on my phone. Touch Physics, Gangstar, and definitely HoldEm (poker) are all well worth it. Oh, and Spider the Secret of something or other, but it's good anyway. Rope and Fly and mini-gore aren't bad either. And Trivial Pursuit and Monopoly are good for long train journeys if you're with someone else. Either Flight Control or Harbour Master too.
