Just bookmarking to read tomorrow.

Amazing list, rubberduck

IdrisTheDragon Wed 05-Aug-09 22:09:56

I like wikitunes

MollieO Wed 05-Aug-09 22:10:03

Out of those I like Waterslide. I tend to download boring stuff for me like ITN and Telegraph for news, tube maps (no interest to you!), Skype, Google Earth, Tunin.Fm - means you can use your Iphone as a radio, Facebook, Yahoo Messenger.

Forgot I also like Leaf Trombone.

IdrisTheDragon Wed 05-Aug-09 22:10:47

No, it's called tunewiki blush

Hassled Wed 05-Aug-09 22:12:35

OK, asterisks got buggered up because MN doesn't recognise return as a character, but I recommended all the word games (I LIKE word games, okay?)
and Futoshiki & Centipede as well as the others that are asterisked.
