    Tony Hawkes Pro Skater 2 - Pretty self explanitory its identical to how it was on the Psone i loved it then and still love it now

    Magic seaweed - Surfing hotspots app

    F1 2010 (green logo download from itunes

    BUMP - Bluetooth app that lets you send photos/contacts to another iphone when you bump them together

    Free Wifi - Does what oit says on the tin, lists all free hotspots near your location

    Streetlight - Iphone 4 only, torch app

    Dynolicious - great one for all us petrolheads! measures 0-60 times, G meter etc, very good actually.
    EyeTV - Stream live and recorded TV from your Mac
    TV Catchup - Not strictly an app as you access it through Safari, but allows you to watch live freeview channels, brilliant!
    ZumoCast - Allows you to stream your entire iTunes library to your iphone, again brilliant!
    MotionX GPS - I did a blog about this nifty app, allows you to track your journey, add way points and overlay it to a google map after, you can then select any point on your journey to give the posistion, speed, time etc at that exact place on the journey. A bit geeky but quite cool.
    Guitar Toolkit - Pretty useful if you play guitar, in built tuner, chord chart etc.
    Photoshop Express - A watered down version of Photoshop for iphone, pretty cool considering it's free.
    Fruit Ninja - A simple game that i'm very addicted to right now!

    My mate had a similar problem,

    Try clearing your cookies and cache, turn your block pop ups off...

    Provided you have a 3G sim card also you should be good

    You need to ensure that you go to the iphone version of the tv catchup website site rather than their normal desktop website, that might be your problem actually. Search in google for "tv catchup iphone" rather than just "tv catchup". Am I making sense or gibberish?

    Once you've got it working it'll be amazing I promise!

    If you add it as a shortcut to your desktop then it has it's own funky icon, so it's just like using an app to be honest. A TV guide would be a bonus actually.

    Not anymore you can't. The Spotify service was closed down (some rumour about them selling to Google??), but it was a great app before they vanished. Zumocast is a more than worthy replacement I find, does exactly the same thing.

    That 'SoundHound' is a wicked app !!

    I've just been testing it out for the last half hour with every song that's come on and it hasn't let me down yet...:)

    :happy: It's even more entertaining when you get a tone deaf mate to do it. My mate hummed Jay-Z's 'Hard Knock Life' and it suggested Frank Sinatra's 'My Way'!!
