i-Phone apps - free or otherwise

I've just upgraded to an Apple i-phone, it seems pretty good.

Any thoughts on what apps to download? - preferably free, or cheap.

I've downloaded the free app called "nearest" as I'm off to France and Spain next week on the motorbike, and will need to find hotels / restaurants etc.

I like games, but prefer brain teaser types or arcade rather than shooting or killing games.

Col

Re: i-Phone apps - free or otherwise

Not sure if it exists for the Iphone, but Windows Mobile has a default Teeter game on HTC phones that takes advantage of the tilting g-sensor. It's basically a labyrinth type game where you steer a ball into a goal while avoiding holes and obstacles by tilting the phone in the direction you want the ball to go. It was highly addictive until I finally finished it. I'm sure there must be something similar for the Iphone since it has similar g-sensor hardware.

I think there is - I recall my nephew had something like it on his i-phone, when I saw him in March. I'll check it out.

Thanks

Re: i-Phone apps - free or otherwise

I think there's at least a couple of apps around that allow you to set your Sky+ recording remotely - great when you're on hol and you realise you've forgotten to record something. Having neither Sky+ or iPhone I can't comment on the quality of the app but I like the concept.

Re: i-Phone apps - free or otherwise

skobbler Lite is a free turn-by-turn GPS navigation tool. It downloads the journey map when you start each trip, so beware data download costs, especially abroad. The maps are taken from a user updated wiki style map that you are encouraged to update if you find errors (OpenStreetMap).

I have not used it very much as only had a short time, but it does seem to do the necessary and does re-route, although not as quick as the Tomtom by partner has.

Re: i-Phone apps - free or otherwise

A good game is Angry Birds. You fire them out of a catapult and destroy a structure to gain points. Good fun.

Col - what apps have you downloaded since you first posted this question?

But are you going for 3 stars on every level? I don't move on to the next one until I either have 3 stars or become too frustrated and just move on.

Dave
Just browsing the Forum and came across this and noticed Col has been banned, don't know when or why but that answers the question as to why he has not been on for a while, so Dave he is not going to answer your question.

Cols profile says his last activity was 9/11, his last post seems to have been 7/7

He must have said something explosive.

Re: i-Phone apps - free or otherwise

Yes, dropbox is a cool app, I also use it. Other things are good like iTeleport, Whatsupp or Viber. By the way I am also developing an app for iOS (sg. like the following one: ozeki-voip-sip-sdk/p_457). There are many great apps for iOS devices.

Wink Re: i-Phone apps - free or otherwise

I like Dropbox and Viber too! But, you might want to try these iOS apps as well:
1. ReMINEd - a visual wishlist reminder application
2. IDBuddy - a 24/7 ID manager application
3. CarCrazee - a car photo sharing application

-- Just trying to help! Feel free to ask me if you have questions...
