    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 :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! :thumbsup2

    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.

    Oh no, someone who has me beat - I only have six. My cousin's four year old likes to come to my house after pre-school on Friday afternoons and "shop" for new games. I keep telling him he needs to look for FREE !!!! He's making me go broke. I'll have to check some of these out.

    My current favorites are:
    eReader
    aSleep
    Showtimes
    Urbanspoon
    Moonlight Mahjong
    facebook
    Word Wrap - which I stink at
    Quadrum

    The four year olds' favorites:
    Monkey Diving
    Flick Bowling - this keeps him and his brother occupied in restaurants while we wait for the food
    Sleeps2Xmas - he checks it every time he sees me - by the way 302 sleeps to go - as Bennett would say - that's a loooong time
    Bubbles

    Looking forward to trying some of the one's I haven't seen.

    Oh and a friend recommended Free Memory and for those of you in London - The Tube

    Im really far Behind. I dont have an IPhone. I cant justify getting myself one. I use my computer for most my computing needs and only use my mobile as a phone and not all that often. I do think they are cool though.
