windguru is now on iphone for anyone wanting weather forecasts (it actually has more information on it than the web version does for some reason).

I don't know if you follow any footy but the most used app on my phone is AFL footy live for all my live score updates and stats, I belive there is one for the league, soccer and the union also.
Footy stats - I use this when I get to watch my kids play footy on the weekends I can keep a record of their stats for the game and convert it to a spreadsheet.

There's a relatively new app now called "Send LatLong".

I have only just got it so haven't tried it but it allows you to save and/or send your lat long location. You can use the phone to navigate to saved locations and when you send them to someone else they can see your location on a map. They don't need a smart phone to view apparently, unless I got that part wrong.

Find iPhone is another one I find handy. I know where my mrs is and don't need to ring her every day to find out how her day went. I can just send here a text instead "shopping AGAIN?".

Seriously though, I'm going to put it on here phone so she knows where I am, saves the "where are you" phone call and might be very handy in the event I'm late getting home from fishing. The only downfall is that it only works while the phone you want to locate has 3G reception and some of the areas I fish don't. It does show you last known location though which is better than nothing. If you have reason to not be locatable you can just turn your phone to aircraft mode.

Also good when I don't know if my phone is in the middle of that paddock over there, the neighbour's shed, or near my house somewhere.....or mum and dad's, not that it happens often :oops:

Forgot to mention, you may need to be using icloud for this one to work I think.

Some apps you pay for and some are free. The free ones usually have advertising that you don't really want but not all. I had a free tide app which I used for a year but it only showed that particular day's tide, I decided to pay the money and get the full version which gives the full year's tides for almost anywhere in the world.

The good thing is that even the paid apps are relatively cheap, a few dollars usually and your done.

I found a game on my 11yo son's iPod call "Rack Stare", I told him it had to go but I thought it was pretty cool and true to life. Nothing to do with fishing though

quite amazed to see a workplace (make that several workplaces) become addicted to some app called "draw it" i think.

seems like an online pictionary type game. cant get the receptionists to put it down .
real estate agent and chemist next door got roped in, hungry jacks and the bowling alley staff as well.


on a more serious note, getting government interpreter services to translate over the phone is a pain in the arse. is there an app where someone can speak arabic into their phone and mine will ply it to me in english.

sort of a babel app.

There are some weather radar apps which show you the BOM radar output but it's just a one touch exercise compared to opening up your Internet browser and going to a bookmark. One I've got allows you to zoom with your fingers but you need to select the particular radar whenever youre in a different location. Another one won't allow zooming but automatically shows the radar nearest your current location, handy when travelling.

Don't remember the names, think one is BOM radar lite (free one) the other might be Rain?
