    If you are into taking pics with your iPhone...there is a great photo editing app called 'Snapseed.' I love it! I also have an app for tracking my sleep patterns. It's called ''Sleep Cycle.'' What iPhone apps do you frequently use? Any favorites?

    Private Eye had a good cartoon recently, of a walking man texting a friend about "this great new app that enables me to see where the fuck I'm going, as I walk down the street texting".

    I find by far the most useful function is having the same copy of the same diary (calendar, in US-speak) available both at home on my Mac and when I'm out and about. All the rest is peripheral fluff, especially the notably crap weather forecasting by Yahoo - seems as if the London weather is being brought to me by some clown in California who's always 24hrs out of date.

    I like flashlight, too babe. There is also an app for youtube, and it makes it easier to access it on your phone...than if you were to access it through the net. Kinda nifty.

    Well, I wouldn't call it a favourite, but I do use the Splashtop 2 Remote Desktop app on my iPad rather frequently. There is a phone version of this app as well, but I prefer using the larger screen on the iPad, since my home and office desktop's default resolution are rather large.

    So is this comparable to 'dropbox?'

    Well, the Splashtop 2 app functions quite differently from the Dropbox app. It in short is a remote desktop app (as the name implies), and it allows you to access a compatible and connected desktop computer from your mobile device. What you see on your device's screen is what you would normally see on your desktop computer, so it does allow you to bypass some of the usual limitations a mobile device may have when compared to a real desktop (such as Flash videos, script based functions, and possibly even games - although I do not play any, etc).



    I do use both Dropbox and Splashtop 2 when I'm out and about. Dropbox is useful by allowing you upload files you anticipate you may want to use when out of the home or office environment, but the Splashtop 2 allows you to upload files from your home/office desktop computer into Dropbox that you may not have uploaded before you go outside, and has the functionality of having either desktop with you even when you don't; by connecting to them using a remote desktop app like Splashtop 2 or any other similar app.

    I read this earlier and it just dawned on me as to how splashtop works--what??! This sounds like a very useful app! My desktop from my laptop will "appear" on my phone using this app? I can see the smaller screen being an issue with the phone though.

    It is, if you find yourself somewhat hampered by the limitations of a mobile phone when compared to an actual desktop computer. I use this app rather frequently due to the nature of my work and me having brought it (my work) home with me from time to time.

    It is an issue actually. That is why I've resorted to using a tablet to facilitate and accommodate the desire to work on a larger screen without having to lug around a laptop that requires me powering it up and any additional spare batteries.

    Hoping to find something in here remotely attractive when the part of of the US I live in, and only 15 miles from a supposedly progressive State capital, finally gets cell phone signal.

    You do not have cellular coverage where you're at?

    I didn't either up on the Ranch when I lived here. It was spotty at best.

    Unless you have an older iPhone, iOS7 now has a flashlight native to the O/S, so pretty much all flashlight apps are now redundant, unless you want to dim it or flash it.
    It is by will alone I set my mind in motion.

    I have a 4S. I do not think the 5 or 5S is worth upgrading to if you have 4 or 4S. I, too, am waiting for the 6. Although if Apple does not make it more water resistant, I might go for an Android. I have lost/ damaged several iPhones to water/ moisture. Sometimes I don't even know how it happened, although once I definitely put it through the washing machine. It was horrible. I took it out as soon as I could but by then it was all dead and it was heating up due to short circuit. *shudders at memory*
    It is by will alone I set my mind in motion.
