Any Ipad Iowners out there?

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I have acquired an Ipad. Are there any other users out there?

    If so, what apps can you all recommend? Any "must haves", also and "absolute shiite" apps too please.

    Free ones are all well and good, but I don't want to fork out for gash ones.

    Thanks in advance
  2. The only one I really bother with are the bbc, google maps and this tv guide.

    I don't really do apple products much tbh, but this was a gift so it sits around on my coffee table doing little but providing a quick reference for what's on the box. I'll keep an eye here, maybe I'm missing out on the point of this thing...
  3. iThoughtsHD is a great mind mapping piece of kit - if you do mindmapping that is.

    Don't forget you can save web pages as desktop icons and so basically have a 'webapp' - linkedin, C4 News and arrse all work well like this.

    Worth the six quid for 'pages' and 'numbers'

    UK Traffic HD is tempting but the live 'traffic flow' feed you get on the native maps app is missing - so stick with that.

    Wikihood and Discover both good if you are a wiki fan.

    Sketchbook is featured on the TV ads; great but complicated.

    IMDB is a good free movie app.
  4. I have the TV guide already, and the Sky+ app is great (if you have sky+) as you can set your box to recored TV from wherever you may be.

    IMDB is great for settling those pub arguments on who starred in what etc
  5. pocket pond is fun :D like having a koi pond, when you touch the water the fish scatter, and you can knock dragonflies in to feed 'em!!
  6. Tower Madness HD is a great "tower defence" game that has kept me interested for a long time. Can be challenging too.
  7. Just go on youtube and search "ipad top apps"
  8. If you have kids that are 4 or older, they'll love things like Talking Tom. Come to think of it, have not seen my iPad in weeks... It's amazing how kids cannot read or write but can use an iPad, clever bid of kit that is.
  9. The "Star Walk" app is top notch, worth the £2 or so it costs!

    Agreed, star walk is pretty impressive, you have to use it to appreciate how innovative it really is. Edited to add, you put the iPad up to the sky and as you move around it displays the night sky you should be seeing, very impressive.

    Air video is also good, it streams your media across your wifi home network so you can watch anything on your iPad that's on your pc, I think it was free too.

    Wikipanion is a wiki client that's worth having.

    Amazons kindle software, which is free, for reading digital books, well recommended.

    I think everyone must have heard of shazam, more usefull on the iPhone, but it can recognize any music I've tried it with so far.

    World clock if you need to know the time of day in multiple time zones/cities around the world.
  11. Will look into Air Video!
  12. Fragger has been good fun. Can't beat lobbing a grenade about at random.

    EDITED to add ; which TV guide ? There's loads of them !

  13. Air video........quality. Streamed porn to my iPad :)
  14. iswifter, allows flash movies/games to be played on ipad

    Filmon - UK and International TV

    eBay app, prefer it over windows based pc use

    Opera browser - like the look, fell and inprivate browsing
