Anyone know any RSS Feed apps that will send through a push notification for each new feed?

I concur with the WeatherPro recommendation, it's excellent.

Yeah obviously limited to the stores it searches, it's not going to beat a human search. What I love is that it immediately gives you an idea if the price quoted is reasonable plus it stores it for later reference. So its easy to look at the list of scanned items later and google yourself.

For example its perfect in airport stores where the markup is huge. I found a phone case there I'd been looking for ages, scanned and found it was half the price. I hadnt been able to find it anywhere but now I can stroll to the nearest store identified and get that.

Accuweather's more than good enough for me as its free - I wouldnt pay for weather forecasts off the TV so not going to on the phone :) I think Accuweather is the best free one.

Free Doctor Who : The End of Time Part I episode to download today!

Mirror's Edge is free at the moment.

No idea how long that will last, so best to download it now.

RIP to the VLC media player app which has been pulled.

Hope you guys managed to get it before it went as its a great app.

A couple of people have recommended "TimeWheel" but I get no results when I search for it in iTunes. I guess it's unlikely that two people have miss-spelled it so has it been pulled also?

Why did they pull it?

CineXPlayer did much the same thing. Not sure if it's still there though

Tunein Radio app, 59p, lets you record, pause and access old shows, works brilliantly

VLC lets you add movies directly to your iphone through the APP tab of iTunes.

The issue seems to be that Applidium who wrote the app claim they had approval from the VideoLAN association who created VLC to produce the iOS app but there are license issues which Apple cannot resolve.

Shame as its such an easy way to add and watch films on your iOS device.

One of the developers decided that Apple were evil for wrapping the product in their standard DRM (against the terms of the GPL license under which VLC was released) and so ordered them to pull it from the store.

I assume if you have VLC already, you're unaffected by this?

CPFC Cheerleader Observer 14-01-2011 11:30 AM

That's right Neil. If you got it before it was pulled then you can still use it! :p

disco mixx kidd 14-01-2011 02:50 PM

phew!

CPFC Cheerleader Observer 15-01-2011 09:22 AM
