    Downloading Photoswap now - it sounds awesome! I've been addicted to Cloudy since it came out, but this sounds much better.

    It is awesome fun! Just too much testosterone.. That makes the good pics inbetween all the more worth it though.

    Photoswap randomly send a pic with a tag, and get one randomly back. You can then reply to them. Also by clicking on info tab you get to see exactly where it was sent from using google earth. Mint as. Few to many male groins but did get some female ass action and for that alone my most used app.

    I've got load of apps.

    Couple already mentioned ...
    Moonlight Mahjong - nicely done and looks great.
    Aurora Feint - a lot like Puzzle Quest in many respects, puzzler meets RPG.
    iFooty - basically a link into BBC Sports page but nice slick interface

    Couple of ones not ...
    2 Across - Crossword engine. Download current ones from a big list including some UK sources. Really nicely done, allows you to check words / letters and reveal if you are really stuck.
    Dactyl - Very simple but addictive
    Sol Free - 5 varieties of solitaire

    Games by Demoniak ...
    Bridges, LightUp, Loopy + lots more. 59p each and all decent value. Essentially well structured logic type puzzles. Nice interfaces and a nice Web Challenge feature on all of them, where you download a puzzle of the day with a leaderboard.

    One final impressive app in terms of integration ...
    Movies - List current box office movies, ratings, story summary, director, actors etc, watch trailers, uses your location to show you times at your nearest cinema - link through to cinema info like phone numbers and location on a map. You can even book tickets through it.

    This. I've been really impressed by it, though I haven't worked out yet if it'll tell me what's showing over a number of days rather than just today...

    Photoswap = awesome. Although someone has already sent me a picture of his knob. I could've done without that.

    I also picked up SW: The Force Unleashed and X-Plane 9 today.

    SW is quite interesting: it's like the DS version of the Raw/Smackdown game. You don't control character movement, you just gesture to do Force-y powers. Not great, probably not worth 6, but I'm quite enjoying it - probably more than the 360 demo.

    X-Plane could do with a little more content, but I quite like swooping around. A little more pace would go a long way: I've had my plane up to around 450 of whatever units of speed are involved, and it was still quite sedentary, even 200 feet off the ground.

    Also got Line Rider recently, which is as awesome as the website was, and Newtonica, which is quite simple but rather compelling.

    Apple need to offer demo's like Live, so you have a rough idea what you're buying.

    Bought Real Football and X-Plane on a punt. Now RF has been money well spent, while X-Plane is good in a tech demo sort of way, bit lightweight and lifeless, a demo would have come in handy see.

    There are quite a lot of free 'Lite' versions of paid apps appearing, which seems to be the equivalent of offering demos. Not ideal though.

    so I got banned for life from photoswap. Gutted was a good time waster. Just couldn't resist sending sick pics to peeps asking for shots of females only. Glad to have shocked there perversed minds. Sadly now I'm not gonna see no more random sweet ass thongs. Doh

    Two recommendations here in GPStracker and TrailGuru. Both require online registration at their respective site to be useful and can then be told to start tracking your whereabouts. Trailguru is best for training sessions, it tracks your speed, whereabouts and some other whatnot and then allowd you to upload it to the internet for looking at later.

    GPStracker does the same thing but just saves everything as one long datastream, i.e. not as distinct sessions but links all your movements always into one long trail.
    On the plus side it uploads your position constantly allowing for someone to track you in real time on the web. I use this when I go out cycling late and I want the girlfriend to be able to find me in case something happens.

    Both apps are completely free and highly recommended.

    Ok, I've tried photoswap again and it's like crack (once you learn to look past the actual hairy but cracks). Sure, some photos are quite dull, but I enjoy keeping my eye out for something creative to send.

    I love getting into a reply competition with someone, that's damn addictive. Does anyone know if it's possible to save images/capture screens? I've been sent some damned weird stuff.

    You can take screengrabs on the iPhone - top button and home button together I think.

    Something about battery life or the fact that the iphone doesn't support MMS perhaps?! ;)

    I bought Quordy this morning and it's a great little version of Boggle. Just ignore the possible high score list after each game as the list is full of made up nonsense!

    Is the content ever any good though? I don't like old dusty 'classics' much.

    There's plenty of excellent Sci-Fi for instance, and books don't have to be 'that' old to be public domain.

    Just tried photoswap. I feel dirty.
  • Deleted user 29 September 2008 21:16:52
    I hope I get unbanned from Photoswap soon. I wrote them a very apologetic lie about how my "son" must have got me banned playing with "his dad's new toy" after I went to bed that night, so fingers crossed, eh?

    Snapture Premium pisses all over the default camera app.
    Enigmo is a great little game - similar to Lemmings in style.
    Texas Hold 'Em has been getting a few hours sunk into it too.
    Fizz Weather if you want something better than the default weather app

    This question doesn't compute on any level I am afraid. I don't like "dusty" "classics", either. But I love classics.

    Arrgh!

    I got a touch for my birthday (the day before you posted this) and like a hasty oaf, downloaded 4 classics (@ a whopping 59p each ;)) before noticing this. :)

    Of course all 4 were free on Stanza which seems like a great viewer too.
