With a lot more people having access to apps thought it migh be a nice place to just write down what apps you have on yout iTouch, iPhone, Ipad witha very brief description inclding cost so otehrs can try them

As the app store grows to huge proportions I am finding it hard to find stuff unless someone tells me about it or it is featured on the first page or 2

I was reading a science book to Tomas the other day and was trying to explain about soundwaves - he wasn't getting it so I searched for an app and within 20 seconds I had my own oscilloscope and could demonstrate 1st hand - how awesome is that!

So far on my iPhone my favs are

Angry Birds -59p game
Goals! - free soccer game
Bad Apples - free puzzle game
Hot Dog Down the Hallway - Naughty but nice free game
Chess Free
Knights - 59p arcade game
Sneezies -59p Arcade game

Sky+ - amazing app to programme your sky + box from anywhere on the planet!!

Torch - which I use more than I thought

eBay

Toiletfinder

Moonmaplite - free and great

and Planets - Free

on the ipad

Angry Birds
Labyrinth2
Godfinger
Need For Speed
Scrabble
Sudoku
Harbour Master
Modern Combat

Pages
iBooks
Marvel Comics ( they eep adding free ones)
Epicurious

I'm sure there are a ton more , but they seem to be getting lost on th eother thread

Good idea or no?

You have a username that you can give out to your friends and they can send you little instant messages. You can also send files in the newer version, too :yes: It's a really good way and often quicker than texting. It uses push notifications so you get a little alert the same as you would a text whenever you get a 'ping'.

I prefer whatsapp because a lot of my friends have blackerrys so I can speak to them also. It's also done by your phone number so it automatically adds anyone from your address book that's got whatsapp. It's something like 1.59 to buy. :yes:

Farm frenzy HD 2, love it!

Skywatcher
25-06-2010, 07:11 AM
Ooo ooo ooo

Lisa paid the 5.99 to upgrade 'Gravity' - which is as frustrating and addictive as Angry birds - now the way you upgrade this is to click the upgrade button in the app and it uploads more levels to the app - rather than have a lite version and a full version.

So I hesitated as we have doubled up on all her apps by simply syching with iTunes and only having to pay once.

Anyway as we have stopped talking since she bought the game I thought - aw heck I'll upgrade it as well and clicked upgrade

it then connected to iTunes in the background and popped up with the message ' you have already upgraded this game would you like to download again?'

So... again BOGOF - for anyone with a 2 iPad family I would strongly recommend only using 1 iTunes account - whene we sync to the mac you can check or uncheck any of the apps on there you don't want so we each have a very different selection of apps on ours, but it does mean we only have to pay once - and for things like 'Things' and 'Pages' that is no small saving

Kindle. Does anyone know how much extra approx it is to download books from this site in 's instead of $'s? I know it is more expensive which is a pain.

I have only downloaded 1 free book as either I can't find them on iBooks, or think I could get 3 for 2 at WH Smiths etc!!! I thought we would have a good few books on the iPad for our long trip in September, but it doesn't look like it!!

When you're looking for free titles for your iBook shelf, don't forget to take a look at The Gutenberg Project (http://www.gutenberg.org/wiki/Main_Page)!

Their titles are mostly classics that have passed into the public domain, but there's still some good stuff there.

Just choose any eBook you'd like, download it to your computer, import it into iTunes, and sync your iPad! :thumbsup:

Sadly no. On both counts. They're still not in the US iBook store. And there's no way I can see to gift something from one countries iTunes store to another if the product isn't in both stores.

No worries however. I've got the Guide in the Kindle version. Not iBooks but good enough for now.

I'll keep checking the store. Sooner or later I'm sure they'll show up.

DONT get rub a dub - great little game on PS3 - useless rubbish game on ipad and so bad I even wrote a review which I havent done before :lol:

Sory total apple geek point but the screen is just so aqwesome on theiPhone 4 that all the apps look grainy now - angry birds ( thank G*d I backed up the old iphone) is even very grainy so I suppose they willhave to start producing HD apps for the i4

Now, I'm a bit dim so forgive me, but when others play the games, how do you get it back to the beginning so they don't carry on your game? Probably a very simple answer, but it is flummoxing me.

Chris, I'm never ever ever listening to your app suggestions again :snooty: I have spent the best part of my day destroying the Russian Military :rotfl:Everything you suggest is so addictive!

What is your ping! Keith? Keithop?

Depends on the game Poohtle but there is usually a new game option or an option to clear the data under 'options'

for things like angry birds though I think the only way t completely clear it is to deleyte it and load it again - iTunes being as clever as it is will recognise that you hae bought it before and won't charge you again - this is how we get around Lisa and I having the same paid apps on both our devices for only shelling out one as we share an itunes account

Thanks for that. It is a bit of a pain as the grandchildren want to have a go when they come, and that messes up the ongoing game someone else is having. You would think something as simple as that would have sorted. I can't be the only person with friends and relatives wanting to have a go. Also of course John and I often would want to play the same games and not just carry on from each other's past effort!!!

And, did you happen to see that they've got Talking Larry the Bird (http://outfit7.com/apps/talking-larry-bird/) coming soon! That's another one I'll have to have.

Wonder what happens when you strike him with lightning? :unsure:

BTW - I picked up a copy of Osmos based on your recommendation Chris. So glad I did. That thing's wonderful!

is there an app for recording holidays on ipad?

I currently keep a spreadsheet in excel with the days throughout the year that me and hubby have off, so I know when, how many we've taken and how many we have left of our yearly allowance.

It would be great to have this kind of information to hand when i want to check if we have days left of our allowance. Is there any such ipad App that anyone can suggest?

I don't want a full on calendar as i think thats a little too much for what i want it for.

Actually, the "Numbers" application from Apple on the iPad will read Excel spreadsheets quite nicely. It's Apple's version of a spreadsheet application and it's quite specatacular! :yes:

Tom (:macwave:... the iWork programs are quite nice!)

Talking tom is now Niamh's best :yes: Everytime she sees my iPad she wants me to put it on.. She touches the milk, rolls around in hysterics and then says HI-YA! And rolls around in hysterics when it repeats it. I will have to record it!
