ShowTime iPhone App

September 22, 2008

Ok for those of you who use an iPhone and also love going to the movies (most of us I guess) I thought I would scribble down a small review of the iPhone App Showtime.

ItÕs essentially a movie time application so you can see what movies are on and what time. However this app takes things to the next level. It retrieves your location via GPS, brings up a list off all your local CinemaÕs, gives you access to maps if your not sure how to get there and also a scoring system for the movies that are showing.

I found it useful straight off the bat as I wanted to watch ÒStep BrothersÓ I opened the app, it brought up my local movie house and told me what was on, awesome. One problem was that the movie was not on at a convenient time, so I clicked on the movie title and then it brought up a list of the cinemaÕs showing in and at what time.

It also has the ability to pull down trailers off the movies, although I donÕt think that works in Australia just the US. Add this to the list of popular titles showing and rated titles and you have all the info to make a great choice of what to watch at the movies without the hassle


RunKeeper App update

September 22, 2008

Also there has been an update to Runkeeper, which I use to track my runs, there is a review of the app on the blog in a previous post.

This time you have more control over your workouts, plus the ability to upload manually rather than whilst your exercising, this means that you can now wait till you go home and upload the route via wi-fi rather than using your data allowance.
Also improved GPS fix and a signal meter so you know how strong the signal is. Not a massive upgrade but non the less a worth while one.

Missing my Blog

September 15, 2008

Well its been ages since my last post, this is due in no uncertain terms to the fact I have NO internet access. Staying with my girlfriends parents who are not into Technology what so ever (they dont have mobiles, for real) means that I am limited to little or no internet use, apart from the iPhone and the occasional trip to the library.

I have been upto lots of cool stuff as well since getting back to Perth and I really wanted to share it all with you. However I have now set up the blog to allow posts via email, so hopefully I will start getting some things through before to long.
