I'm bored... Recommend me some please...
is the shit
also civ revolutions
i dont have it myself , but people i know highly recommend it & ive heard some positive reviews. The only downside is the computer does not let you navigate through the Mars space station setting, instead moving you along a fixed path predetermined by the developers.
as mine arrived yesterday, so I would also like recommendations. So far I only have last.fm and Facebook.
It locates the nearest cash-points to your location.
can anyone please recommend a case that
1. covers the screen
2. is fit for a clumsy person that drops things (shock resistent)
3. doesn't make the damn thing three times the size
4. still lets you access pretty much everything without removing the case and;
5. won't make me shudder in disgust every time I look at it
Fieldrunners is OK
Might get Peggle today.
There's not too many I rate. The Special Edition of Monkey Island and Wolfenstein retro ports are superb, so if you like old school gaming they're worth a punt. The Real Football 09 and Need For Speed Underground titles are two of the better £5 ones, not fully fledged console fare but pretty damn decent.
Sway is an innovative little title too, as is Rolando. Both use the iPhone technology really well.
Of the puzzle games, I recommend Peggle too and also Scrabble (though annoyingly they seem to have removed the option to play it whilst keeping your iPod on) and a great little puzzle game called Drop7. Kind of a new fangled Connect 4 for our generation.
Otherwise I use Manifesto a lot to check RSS Feeds, iFooty to check up on the BBC Match Day Feeds and Shazam for checking song titles which I've forgotten.
Other oddities worth considering are RjDj's app which samples the sound the iPhone speaker can hear and allows you to create weird little compositions on the move, AroundMe which gives you some good pub recommendations in London, Darkslide for checkin your FlickR page and Trace, where you have to draw missing levels and platforms to get your little man to the end marker.
Be warned, for every half decent iPhone app there are 3,582 shite ones.
TV Plus (if you've got Sky+)
iDisk (if you've got a MobileMe account)
