    Well I emailed them last week and they said they were updating the app soon and that would include an 'unbanning' mechanism, but I think that's bullshit.

    Plus if any of their mods actually has a record of what I sent, they ain't unbanning me no matter what excuse I give them.

    ;)

    Ha ha same here. Will try emailing them too with a plee.

    If you jailbreak you can hack this so that VoIP works too ;)
    Nobody i know uses VOIP stuff, plus this does actually do that anyway as far as I know, over WiFi, with no jailbreaking required.

    Could be wrong, of course, but like I say I'd never use it anyway.

    I should have been clearer - you can hack it so that VoIP works over 3G. It will work over WiFi as you say.

    Ah haaaaa.

    Would use it, but like I say, most of my friends and family haven't got a techy brain between them, except my brother but I don't think he could be arsed with Skype.

    Pumpkin is worth a look if you want a cheesy halloween themed app. It basically turns your iphone into a pumpkin lantern, you can select from a range of eyes, noses and mouths and it plays halloween style sound effects. Keeps the little 'un amused anyway.

    Catch the egg is a nice original game. You hold the phone vertically and try and catch an egg as it falls from the sky. A nice idea, but not one you'll be playing in public.

    Aquaforest Lovely looking game. Slightly lacking in gameplay (about 6/10) but looks stunning (10/10). A great 'show off' game.

    TVersity

    Ok, so not really an app you install on your iphone, but by installing it on your PC your iPhone automatically has access to all of your videos/music/photos etc. What's great is this can work both over wifi and over 3g (egde is even ok for music and photos). It's absolutely astounding and it means I no longer have to mess about copying over videos using iTunes anymore! Loving it.

    How? I've got a Touch. How do I access my network?

    Go to 'settings'. The wifi option should be at the top. Selecting it will set your ipod to search for all local wifi networks. Just select your own one and enter you WPA/WEP password.

    PuzzleManiak €3.99 - includes a lot of Nikoli puzzle games (in fact most of the ones from here are in there), all are randomly generated with different difficulty levels and includes a daily Web Challenge where you compete against other's times. Worth it alone for Slitherlink.
    You can also buy individual puzzles for €0.79.

    Vexed €0.79 - Good port of the Palm OS game including all level-packs.

    I'm still looking for a version of Sherlock (Windows) or Hercule (Palm OS)...

    Oo, just tried Topple after seeing a video on digg (it's Tetris meets Jengu) and it seems rather good - definitely worth 59p.

    what is the best dictaphone application. I think that would be really handy for recording my kids promises/assertions and playing back to them at a later date.

    The Oxford Concise English Dictionary is available from the app store now - it's £14.99 but I've wanted something like this since I was a nipper.

    There's an app called 'Record' on the app store. It's free at the moment to celebrate the devs (polar bear farm) birthday or summin'.
    Just installing now so haven't tried it - but sounds like it'll do what you need.

    my favourite apps

    PicVault - Lets me hide all the pictures of my ex girlfriends from my current one with a password, cant get much better.

    Topple - Great game, mix between jenga and tetris, aim is to stack blocks up to a certain height, cant get past level 7 though. Only 59p.

    BeejiveIM - the best IM on the iphone, my favourite used to be palringo but this is so much better. Lets you have a display picture and lets you see others, supports landscape mode and unlike palringo it actually lets you change your screen name!! Also unlike palringo it don’t let you send pictures but hopefully that will come with an update. Can block and unblock contacts, delete and add contacts. Supports loads of messengers but iv only used it for MSN. Never crashed on me once. Only downfall is I paid something like £11 for it, I think its gone down to under a tenner now.

    Answers - ask a question and let a random teenage American answer it, or answer a American teens question about “is 4inches too small”!! free app and kept me entertained for a couple of minutes. Theres a app like this for yahoo answers now aswell for free, might try it later.

    mBoxMail - first app that lets you checks hotmail on the iphone without going through safari. Works like the normal mail app but only lets you add one account. isn’t as fast at downloading emails as the normal app. Also it don’t let you save pictures or any other attachments, and doesn’t let you send pictures. Best feature is that it supports landscape mode for typing. Pretty handy to have if hotmail is your main email account and you need it on the go, not worth £5.99 just yet, needs some updates.

    BeatMaker - expensive but insanely clever mini-sequencer. Missing things a pro would likely bemoan but getting better with each minor update and a fantastic example of what can be done with the current iPhone.
  • Deleted user 26 October 2008 14:27:48
    What it really needs is a call-recording app, but I expect that pisses all over Apple's privacy rules for the App Store.
