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!

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!

Yea its good but it would be even better if it was an app, also noticed theres no tv guide on the iphone versions, not that im complaining its still great.

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...:)

I gotta get myself a life, lol

: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'!!
