Does anyone know of any good fitness applications? Not something that just times how long you've jogged for, but something with some exercises to do in the comfort of your own home :)

I've downloaded loads and loads of apps. The majority last a couple of days and get deleted

How are people getting on with Championship Manager? I wouldn't play it on the desktop but could see myself having a game on the bog or ting.

BulletEagle 18-01-2010 09:55 PM

Agreed

Its a little buggy and can be infuriating but otherwise very good! I'm about to take Palace into the champions league this season! - so therefore maybe a little easy!

Bugs
It crashes a bit more than most games but it tries to do more than most games - if you get a phone call it wont return to the game itll quit you out
When you save games it doesnt always return to that point, and as there is no quit button this can be quite annoying as it normally returns to one of the autosaves it does

cons
Its very hard to move players on that are crap - so maybe realistic in that sense?:D
Can be a bit slow moving from section to section

EDIT:They've just brought out quite a big update which i havent gone into yet but theres loads of new screens and fingers X its more stable now-will report back when had a chance to muck around with it

I found my 9 year old listening to a kids technology podcast last night, all these 7-11 year olds emailing in about best apps etc for their ipods, made me feel old.

might have been mentioned but the "Moron Test" is well worth 59p of anyones money.

Playing with TouchMouse this morning which allows you to turn your iPhone into a remote control for your mac.

Works really well and as well as being able to control the mouse pointer, it has a keyboard layout so you can actually remotely type type on your computer!

I bet you one million pounds you will use it less than five times

CPFC Cheerleader Observer 29-01-2010 11:42 AM

I'll have the million pounds then as i used it last night whilst hooking my laptop to the tele to watch a film.

Plus used it this morning to click licensing and agreeing buttons on installations on a machine that was on the other side of the room!
Very useful to save getting off your arse! :)

If you need a remote control WHY ON EARTH would you use a mobile phone and NOT a remote control?

I can use my electric toolbrush to play ping pong, doesn't mean I should.

CPFC Cheerleader Observer 29-01-2010 12:05 PM

Oh you love a good discussion dont you! ;)

Its a funky FREE app and my phone is always next to me to use as a remote is all.

Mellors tried to convince me that using your phone to control XBMC was cool.

It's not.

CPFC Cheerleader Observer 29-01-2010 12:14 PM

All to your own then.

The thread is called 'recommendations'. So we can all post we we think, doesnt mean anyone else has to use them.

Whatsapp

Lets you instant message, including picture messaging, using your internet allowance so you dont pay for any text messages or picture messages again. Only works between Iphones but if oyu have a lot of mates with Iphones it is worth using

Remote to control iTunes is pretty useful during a party/gathering when you can hand the phone around to get people to add songs to a playlist.

I think they are arguing about airmouse rather than the remote control app (which is very very good).

KingsleY 03-02-2010 02:52 PM

I used airmouse to control my Mac when i want to actually use it as a PC, instead of a media center.

My wireless mouse is too jerky at that distance away.
I need a bluetooth one I think

Anyone has a look at Vouchercloud? Was in today's Sun and is quite good. Picks up your location and shows you any shops and food around your area with vouchers. U can then get the voucher on ur phone to use.
