    There's an iPad version out too.




  • Soundhound - Not free but far better than Shazam
    X-Plane - Great flying game
    Penultimate - Simple note-taking app
    SketchBook Pro - Better than any other drawing app - very deep with unlimited brush options




  • Have had mine a while too (got it launch weekend in US). Glad to see more apps coming available. Would still like to see more of the Ireland/UK publications launch versions. Love Time & Wired's apps.

    Flipboard looks good, and is now live with Facebook & Twitter content!

    Anyone know when actual chart content will come onto the iBooks store, rather than just the Guttenberg stuff?

    Teamviewer is not too bad for remote access to your Mac/PC, just trying it out now




  • DocstoGo Premium
    Air Video
    ABC
    IPlayer
    FlipBoard (See Clip Below)
    a few more but can not remember

    I made the below as a test from my new camera today but i wanted to show how good flipboard is

    How did you get the iPlayer app? Is that the BBC iPlayer? I've looked in iTunes and I can't seem to find it. I have a UK account and I couldn't find it there either.

    There's no official app. Just go to the website and then when on the iplayer page save it to your home screen.

    Ah I see. It doesn't work outside the UK for me though :( Any workaround?

    Sorry, of course the iPlayer is not full app, i have it on my media page with ABC and Hulu+ but its just a link back to their iPad compatible site.

    Also i am using PureVPN with USA and UK connections set up and working like a charm.

    My apps include
    Pages
    Numbers
    Keynote
    Racer HD
    HD Snooker
    HD Scrabble
    Airplane HD (lander game)

    You need to sign up for a VPN for the UK which when you switch it on, will give you a UK IP address. There's loads of codes posted for BlackVPN on here which will give you 3 months sub for €5. It's usually €5 a month.

    See my sig for Black VPN referral code if you are interested




  • How long does it take to get codes once paid?




  • its immediate :)




  • Thanks, they messed up on me- sent support query 24hrs later and got codes!

    God this iPad stuff is so cool!




  • Art Studio is really good if you're into drawing




  • Anybody having a problem using both a US and a Uk account with BlackVpn?

    My Us account works no problem but the Uk account won't logon at all. Just disconnects straight away.

    Their support has been no help




  • I like the bit on the website that says why you should use BlackVpn and then lists my IP adress and tells me I'm in Longford for some reason.

    I certainly would hate for people to think I lived in Longford.




  • I certainly would hate for people to think I lived in Longford.
    People from Longford would even hate for people to think they lived in Longford! :pac:
