It's no help to you, I know, but I am so glad I grabbed myrail lite when it was still available. It's still working - it was invaluable a couple of days ago when I needed to be in London for a meeting, and was running late. I thought I had missed the 9:00am train - but myrail showed that it had been delayed by 10 minutes, so I dashed to the platform and just caught it. I wouldn't have bothered without this information and would have had to wait 45 minutes for the next train.

I hope that myrail comes back in some form for those who haven't got it.

A few more for you - spent last last day and a half running over a few apps

Scratch Plus for the DJ's amongst is us pretty cool. I could imagine using this alongside decks at a club to add an extra dimension.

Just been hooked on Fieldrunners for the last 2 hours! Tower defence clone but great - controls work just fine.

Real Soccer 09 is a pretty good Fifa clone.

iWik - a wikipedia thing

Newsstand - nice looking RSS aggregator with funky reader.

well, there was a good on on the Palm a few years back that supported offline support - thought it was called avantgo. But seeing as I'll mostly get *some* sort of signal on this phone I should imaginge, it's no biggy.

It must be my cold, I don't understand. You could just go to the real website if you have an internet connection.

I've just discovered an App for my windows mobile phone called comic book reader. I know this is the iPhone thread, but am enjoying reading sandman/batman on my phone so thought I'd suggest it to those that hadn't considered using their iPhones to do this! Sorry if it's already been mentioned.

Anyway, this appears to be the iPhone app that does the same

just been reading about Apple iPhone Killswitch. Apparently there is a line of code that can use to delete apps from your iPhone. This may affect those of you in the future who are using the MyRail application if they chose to delete it.

If you have a jailbroken phone you can disable this killswitch using an app called Bossprefs, that also does other stuff too.

It's easier on the eye and less hassle. No sodding about turning your phone on the side, stretching the screen in and out to get the right link. If you just want the latest headlines at a glance, it's cool.

You could say the same about the iFooty app. All the info is available elsewhere on the web, but if you just want a snap shot of the latest Palace news, in match text commentary and previous results, it's just easier.

I wish beerintheevening would do an app that tells you the nearest pub and details of it. That would be fab.

Have I recommended FriendSync yet? syncs your phone contacts with your facebook friends and adds all the pics from their profiles. Their pictures then pop up when they call you - very cool, and at £0.59, a bargain.

SOme do, some don't. A lot of the good ones are free and a lot of the paid ones are not that good. Best bet is to read threads like this one or similar on other forums.

If you just can't wait til tomorrow why not download the latest iTunes now - you can browse the iTunes store and look at the different apps and the reviews on there

Me too. Let's keep in touch and share our experiences.

Have you thought of a name for yours yet?

it also means that this forum will no longer be a Mal Free Zone.
