Great Iphone apps

Okay, so yesterday I had a bit of a rant about the Iphone’s wooden syncing policies amongst other things. It’s not all bad though, far from it.

Here are some of the great apps I’ve come across so far:

Seadragon

This the Iphone version of Microsoft’s Seadreagon engine, a mechanism for navigating very large images, including nested images to an infinite (or at least unstated) depth. It’s ultimately pointless but geekily fun.

TubeStatus

This shows you the current status of the tube lines in London. Fatalists might suggest that this is pointless, but I’m an optimist, which means that I hope one day this will enable me to stay in the pub rather than waiting on a jammed platform on a line with severe delays.

MyRail Lite

This shows you the status of the overground train lines in the UK. It also hooks in to Google Maps to show you where stations are, find your closest ones, and give you directions to them.

Chess With Friends

Does as it says on the tin. Play by mail chess for the touch-screen generation.

TouchPhysics

The Iphone version of the lo-fi classic Crayon Physics. I’m still waiting for Crayon Physics Deluxe.

    Nice choice of apps here, i saw that you work with images, so i also would recomend an app called Storyz to you, it’s for sharing images and videos among a group of people.
    cheers
