All help great appreciated...........


Yep that will work. I have skype on my iphone, my son on his touch and my mate has an android phone all works really well.

I have whatsapp but don't really use it so I cant help there.

First Touch Soccer is a great little game (if although unofficial). For those of you already with it, here are the files you need to import Palace's real kits, but the shorts and socks are incorrect on the away kit.

ESPN Goals

Match highlights and the goals from all Premier League games just after 5pm (Saturdays anyway - not sure what the deal is with Sunday/Monday games).

Best to avoid if you're in and want to watch MOTD, but great if you're out for the night and want to see the goals quickly.

The above is free, I should add.

Not on the twitter site but Football Banter app gives you all of the league players updates, you can of course choose to follow teams so get to see all of the palace players tweets together.

Helsing's Fire is a fab little game. There's a lite version if you want to try before you buy

Just pimping a friend's first game for iPhone. Please give Call Connect a try.

Quote:

Description

Ever dreamed of being a 1950s telephone switchboard operator? The glitz! The glamour! The hairstyles! The never ending stress of handling communication for an entire city!

Dream no longer, for Call Connect is here! Call Connect is a unique, fast-paced switchboard simulation and the first release from Melbourne-based indie developer Walk Through The Clock.

You'll be faced with a daunting wall of sockets and jacks with colour coded rows that represent region codes. Flashing white lights indicate incoming calls; touch and drag a red jack to the incoming call socket and the region light will flash, indicating which colour region to connect the black jack to. Drag the black jack to any free socket in that region to connect the call. When the call is over, both lights flash; tap both to disconnect. That’s Call Connect!

Sound simple? Things get more than a little hectic when you're juggling six or more calls at once! The faster you complete calls, the higher your Efficiency meter and score multiplier will go. Leave callers waiting or connect to the wrong socket and watch your Efficiency needle drop. When the needle hits the bottom of the meter, it’s game over.

Luckily there's also a match-pair bonus mode you can activate when things get tricky. Keep an eye out for the multi-coloured special calls needed to activate the bonus "Test" mode button; once activated, match coloured sockets to boost score and Efficiency.

Call Connect offers frenetic, high scoring gameplay and will challenge your co-ordination skills as you try to keep your board from overloading.

FEATURES:

- Unique, addictive gameplay

- Graphics hand-crafted by a small order of game developing monks

- Music by Melbourne band Star Express

- Local leaderboards

- Hit the Feedback button and email your hopes, dreams (and opinions) directly to us, the developers. We'll be replying to every email we get and your feedback will influence future updates. Don’t hold back, we can take it.

************************************************** ********
What’s new for Version 1.1 update (out soon):
- Game Center support (Leaderboards! Achievements! Bears!* Oh my…)
- Easy Mode: Is CallConnect just a little too much to handle? Fear not budding switchboard operators, there is an Easy Mode incoming. Fewer sockets, gentler difficulty and anything else we can think of to ease you into becoming a Call Connexpert.

*Bears may not be included in update.

Just downloading myself now, but looks like a lot of fun and word of mouth so far has been positive.

Neil 22-09-2011 09:54 AM

It's very good fun actually. Doesn't take long before things start to get fast and frantic though :D

Heb 7:4 22-09-2011 10:04 AM

I am loving Outdoors GB. You have to buy the OS maps on top, but as someone who does a lot of walking it has been brilliant.

If anyone is in to iPad golf, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12 for iPad 1.0.2 is now free "for a limited period". Worth a download, I think.

Any one used office to go or pages/numbers/keynote on an ipad or iphone? I want to be able to read and edit word docs, excel spread sheets ( V simple stuff) import powerpoint presentations and then display using a vga cable. Trouble with these apps is if you buy them you are stuck. If they are crap/dont work, you've just thrown money away.

Blind_Eagle 06-10-2011 09:07 PM

Surely the purchase of apps is covered by the distance selling regulations which give you seven days to change your mind?

Apple might ignore them in their T&C's but I very much doubt a court would.

There is an exemption in the DSR's in relation to video and audio recordings and downloads and computer software.

Heb 7:4 08-10-2011 02:27 PM

Although Taiwan does indeed allow for people to get their money back

Go Taiwan! Lack of a trial period really does suck. When I could be arsed to jailbreak, that was one of the good points. Try something out, then buy it from the app store if it was worth it.

Im fully aware of the exemption you are referring to but I don't see how can it apply to downloaded apps?

(d)for the supply of audio or video recordings or computer software if they are unsealed by the consumer;

Since when have apps been sealed? ;)

Unsealed = used.

HTH.

Not entirely relevant to the thread but here goes.

My iphone 4 screen has cracked and I am about to get Orange to send me a new phone. To make sure I don't lose any photo's/apps etc when I get my new phone, what do i need to do?
Do i just need to plug my current phone into my laptop and let it update/sync or this there anything else i should do?

It doesn't really help at all though. Can you point me towards any source where unsealed is defined as used as I cannot find one.

Ta.

No, but I found this from a research report prepared for the UK Department for Business, Innovation and Skills:

Quote:

The regulations contain the only provision in domestic law specifically aimed at digital products. They give the consumer a "cooling off" period in distance contracts during which goods supplied under a distance contract can be returned. However, recognizing that digital products can be perfectly copied without harming the original, the consumer's right to return the product is excluded in the case of digital products.
