Andy,iPhone/tvcatchup is a must even if it's not technically an app. 20 odd tv stations over wifi and 3g for free.

If you have sky+ then the app of the same name allows you remotely set your sky+ box.

Tv guide is an excellent free tv listings service which has the above two services integrated into it

Cheers BE, will certainly be going for that as i do have Sky HD and often are away from the house for a few days. I'm always swearing and cursing when i realise that i have forgotten to record something.

I have to say, now owning my first iPhone in my lifetime what an unbelievable bit of kit it is. I cannot believe i have been missing out on so much in recent years. Certainly one of the best things i have ever purchased.

How do i get that if it as not an App on Itunes?

It's a website so put tvcatchup in Google in your phone and go to it that way, you need to register but after that all free to air tv is there on your phone and the quality is amazing. Tried it on my pc and the quality was no where near as good!

andyocpfc 08-09-2010 05:01 PM

Bloody hell, i've just done it. It's amazing. How do you control your Sky from it though?

Finbar 08-09-2010 05:03 PM

Sorry Andy, two very different things.

Mine was a slingbox which is very different, catchuptv can only do free to air. Slingbox requires a lot more investment to get it up and running (time and money!)

EagleSE24 08-09-2010 05:18 PM

Does slingbox totally mess up your monthly download totals?

Finbar 09-09-2010 07:18 AM

Having only had my iphone a month I'll tell you on Monday when I can see exactly how much I've used each day this week, have been watching it for about 5hrs I would guess and not gone over my fair use limit yet (1GB with 3 I think)

I've just downloaded the Sky App - free to download and can look up tv listings and set to record my Sky box once you have registered. Amazing! :lux:

got to get flick football as well - amazingly addictive. 59p, worth every penny.

andyocpfc 09-09-2010 04:32 PM

What is the best playable football game to download in peoples opinion?

BulletEagle 09-09-2010 10:21 PM

Flick Football, Andy.

FIFA 10 is appalling, I found FM poor in detail and realism and those are the main 3.

kettle 09-09-2010 10:45 PM

flick football is a great football free kick game. they update it fairly regularly too - so peoples ideas always get added. for 59p you cant go wrong!
If you want to play a full football game, try x2 football - 2009 or 2010. It is 2.99 / 3.99.

I have downloaded tvcatchup, however it says I need adobe, which apple doesn't support. Any ideas mates

Blind_Eagle 14-09-2010 08:19 AM

You need to download iPhone/tvcatchup, not the standard tvcatchup.

I should like to announce that I now have 3 stars on all levels of Angry Birds (up to and including 10-15). I need some new levels.

How did you get level 10 to open? I have downloaded the update but they're still locked.

You have to complete all the earlier levels first - have you done that?

Yup, I'm guessing I need to go back to my computer and check again as there doesn't seem to be an obvious reason why it wouldn;t work.
