Amazon is great but easy to buy stuff!

You cannot beat angry birds for a free and highly adductive game smile

Ooh, and doodle jump is another good game for free!

I like the kindle app.
I have a kindle but if I'm somewhere without my kindle and fancy a read I can pick up on my iphone from where I left off on my kindle (an vice versa)

My current favourites are:

My fitness pal - tracks calories in and out, plus nutrients which is really useful

Shopstyle - search hundreds of shops for a particular item
Beachfinder
Dog friendly places
National Trust app to find places near you

And Bump is quite good for sharing apps and photos etc with other iPhones (need to be able to physically bump phones)

sfxmum Sun 07-Aug-11 21:34:42

please forgive me for hijacking but since iphone users are about, has anyone had their ipod on iphone showing 'no content' but while checking it on itunes it is all still there? <frustrated>

I managed to fix it once but when it happened again the same fix did not work
TIA
will link to other thread, sorry for abuse of topic

ditto - well I uninstalled itunes in a hissy fit blush
then reinstalled with update - all worked.

mrswoodentop Tue 09-Aug-11 07:36:17

Does anyone know whether the problems with the latest mumsnet app update,on another thread people were saying not to update ,so I haven'thmm

sfxmum Tue 09-Aug-11 08:14:16

I don't quite know how to un install iTunes on iPhone it came pre loaded. Very annoying problem cant update software as keeps telling me it is update

About MN update the thing I noticed was when I want to add a message I get these huge letters and it us hard to see where to tap to get to sensible screen. Not aware of other problems although that is annoying enough
