    To All the iPhone owners - Post your favourite Apps here.

    After reading the lengthy discussions on the iPhone and the hot topic of unlocking and activating to all other networks, I thought I should start a thread for the lucky lucky iPhone owners to post their favourite iPhone apps.

    When posting an app, it would be nice if the poster included a short description of the app, why it's so good, a screenshot and a link.

    I'll get the ball rolling with the most obvious app of all.............

    What it does: Jailbreak (Allow 3rd Party software) and Unlock (to any network/sim) your iPhone with this easy to use app. (Works on the latest Apple firmware 1.1.4)

    I know, it's not strictly an app, but an iPhone essential nonetheless.

    Connect your iPhone, make sure it's recognised in iTunes and press Do it All! 4 minutes later your iPhone is jailbroken and unlocked. Happy Days.

    I'm no expert. I only got my phone yesterday, but haven't been off it since!

    I'm willing to be proven wrong, but I'm pretty sure your iPhone needs to be Jailbroken to run these apps.

    :pirate: CJ :pirate:

    I couldn't imagine the Iphone without a Contract to be honest

    Plus with the SDK is being released soon *availble now for developers
    all signs are looking good and the Iphone is a killer Gadget to have.

    Have a look at the presentation on the New 2.0 UPDATE which is not a newer version of the current iPhone

    What do I need to do to get an iphone on O2 contract to run apps. Do I just need to jailbreak, or does it need ot be unlocked as well? Does anybody know whether I lose visual voicemail (I'm guessing not)? Is it easy to revert to the locked phone? And if this is done, do I lose everything off the phone?

    Yes, just jailbreak.

    No, provided you stay with O2 you should keep visual voicemail.

    Yes, it's easy to revert.

    Yes, the phone will return to it's original condition, thus losing anything installed.

    cheers for posting stuff in this thread, a few apps here i havent got, downloading scribbler and live score now.

    customise is recommended by me too as its real cool.

    the ones i have that arent listed here are:

    iSwitcher: about 10-20 themes for your iphone, download the app and theme packs via installer, very nice themes as they change the icons too!

    mobilechat: MSN messenger etc client, very nicely made app, conversations appear like text messages in speach bubbles, can use in landscape mode too! available in installer by adding twenty08.com/ins…er/ and then refreshing sources and going into install and then into the twenty08 folder.

    iQuran: if your a muslim this app is reaallyyy neat, you can read the Quran on your iphone and also download the chapters to playback on the phone for free! available in installer

    Categories: if you have loads of apps on your springboard you can arrange them into folders so theres less clutter!

    Caterpillar: another recommended app. here are things it does: ripdev.com/cat…ar/
    and heres the instructions on how to crack it rapidshare.com/fil…tml

    real artist: choose a picture or image and smudge it using the touchscreen, you can create some funny pics with this and can also save them, very cool.

    mxtube: download any video from youtube and save it on your iphone! you can watch it later without having to connect to gprs or wifi too! really good.

    pocket guitar - turn your iphone into a guitar - cool

    pianist - formerly iano, very cool piano app for the iphone

    i radio - listen to internet radio on your phone

    showtime - record video on your iphone, i think theres a cracked version floating around but havent had the time to look for it.

    thats all for now

    BTW its a fantastic phone IMO, if it wasnt hacked and jailbroken it wouldnt have been good at all but because it has you can do some very very cool stuff on it! still use it as a second phone as my N95 also rocks!

    the iphone is a nice bit of kit once you get stuff on it though, first when it came out i thought it would be quite ***** when i looked at the feature list but its quite a good phone once you install stuff on it etc.

    got mine about 4-5 days ago and have been playing with it since, battery dies out quick though cos ive been doing so much on it lol.

    apparently v2.0 has been jailbroken and unlocked so we can enjoy the best of both worlds with SDK and installer :-D

    yus786

    edit: wow livescores quite neat! barca are loosing! lol thanks for that, will come in handy definately when im out of the house, just one click and there are all the footy scores :-D
