For those of you that don't want to pay 5 for National Rail app, i can recommend Train Search. It's free of charge and has all the same options as far as i can see. Very easy to use and user friendly.

st albans 04-10-2009 09:41 PM

Fifa10 is quite good, not perfect but ok

NO1FAN 05-10-2009 08:23 PM

Bought Jaadu VNC today and so far it has been excellent and couldn't recommend it enough. Allows me to access my home computer remotely :) and was so easy to set up

Ridcully 05-10-2009 08:57 PM

The new version of yammer is great, push notifications for feeds, anyone know if theres a Twitter app with push yet?

I think x2 football is more polished, less teams but plays better.

t'other one is much better. I forget what it is called, touch cricket maybe

CPFC Cheerleader Observer 06-10-2009 06:51 PM

Have been using Flick Cricket and love it.

But i'll download Touch Cricket tomorrow and see which one i prefer!

Adlerhorst 06-10-2009 06:56 PM

Is very different.

Blinding suggestion, this :p

jimos_uk 06-10-2009 09:00 PM

I love Touch Cricket. Cracking little app for slow five minute smoke breaks!

Baloo 07-10-2009 10:28 AM

I have both Touch Cricket and FlickCricket and prefer the latter.

Touch Cricket looks better and the controls allow different types of shots, but I find it too random on whether I've hit a great shot for four or skied a catch.

FlickCricket is pretty basic and the bowling innings is tedious, but it takes more skill to do well and the challenge of outscoring your previous best keeps me going back to it.

I dont bother with bowling. I always chose "bat to a target" option.

Connect it to Facebook, and you have real people playing!

Flick cricket is the easiest game in the world.

I was playing at lunchtime, and in my auto-generated opposition (which the app picks XI from my FB friends), you were bowling "pace", and I hit you for 4, 6, 4 and then you bowled me out.

Scrumpy 09-10-2009 05:16 PM

"Idiot Test 3" is pretty cool and its free for a limited period.

Lizzy 12-10-2009 04:36 PM

Koi Pond is essentially utterly pointless but really quite relaxing.

Lizzy 12-10-2009 04:36 PM

And I've got a game called paper toss - which is quite fun.

montstar 12-10-2009 04:48 PM

3 cool apps

words free which is basically scrabble the get free one has ads but fully woirks

red laser is really cool about a quid but you can zap any bar code and it will search amazon and a couple other shops and see if you could get it cheaper!

Havent got this one as I dont use the tube that often and it costs but a friend has and it is pretty cool

TV on your iphone without jailbreaking and free. Works with both 3G or wifi.

Sky Mobile is now in the App Store, but Sky want 6/mnth for it. :veryangry And its only sports & news, no other channels.:grrr:

Anyone trying/tried it?

3 months free if you are an o2 customer and if you have jailbroken you can trick it to play over 3g and it works perfectly :lux:

RadioBox is decent (and free). It has a limited amount of UK stations but fine for what I listen to.

To be honest I stayed on 3.0 until fairly recently when I upgraded to the most recent version.

Dave 17-11-2009 02:59 PM

Even so, backgrounder stinks

montstar 17-11-2009 08:33 PM

I agree with dave on this certain apps like radio should be able to run in the background fingers X apple will either let the app makers do this or add some type of radio to ipod!?

wunder radio is haldf decent but you have to pay - iCarRadio lite is half decent and free too

Subscribed to Sky Mobile but like a fool forgot to enter the promo code :( Emailed them promo code to try to get the 3 months free, but I hold out little hope. My son enjoyed watching the whole of the Ireland v France match last night and it now might stop him nagging for the full blown Satellite Sky. Now I need to work out a cunning projection device so more than one person can comfortably watch it. Any ideas?

Just beat Ipswich 5-2 to go top of the league on GD, find it a bit too easy to get injuries though, I'm struggling to put out a 18 man squad and Hills has been at AML for my last 4 games due to injuries to Ambrose, Carle, Moses, Scannell, and unfitness of Sears, Smith and Djilali. lee is on fire though.

how do you quit? If i quit using the home button when i come back it always acts like it crashed, If my phone rings it crashes and it doesnt always seem to go back to the last save which is frustrating!

I found Cydia to be absolute toilet, un-installed it in the end. I only really wanted it for the D-Tunes app, but I could never get it to work. I noticed that there were quite a few people online saying the same thing.

Also, for this weekend only, QuickOffice is only 3.99 when I think it is usually about 10, good for editing and viewing Word and Excel documents.
