Talking The iPhone Collective

Since it seems a large amount of DIS Unplugged listeners & most of the DIS team have iPhones, I thought I'd start a thread for us to share our favorite apps, tips & tricks, accessories, etc.

So, what are some of your favorite Apps?

Mine are:
  • Facebook (although I wish it had more functionality)
  • Yahtzee
  • Bejeweled
  • Grocery IQ
  • Wurdle
  • Open Table
  • Urban Spoon
  • TWC
  • Shazam

I also have several apps on my phone just for my boys:
  • iShoot
  • Eye Tricks
  • Dots Free

I don't really have accessories - just an Incipio SiliCrylic case which I really like because it's a combination of soft silicone & hard case.

So, c'mon...share your iPhone love and join the collective.

Question for the Pete, have you tried to get DIS Radio listed on Fly Cast? Radio Disney is available but not DIS Radio.

Thanks, Jeff! I just installed Take Me To My Car - that's brilliant!

Do you find that Say Who works pretty well? I do miss voice dialing.

Say Who sometimes returns some pretty unusual matches. I find that the harder I try to pronounce a name distinctly, the worse it does. But its fun to play around with.
