Iphone Apps

For those who have an Iphone I found a great application called "Around Me" (read about it below).  The great thing about it is it works perfectly here in Australia unlike many other US based apps, and it's free :-)

Around Me:

If you have ever found yourself looking for a cafe, ATM or bookstore nearby, you might consider this app a godsend. AroundMe 1.0, a new iPhone app by TweakerSoft, makes it easy to figure what’s nearby.  By leveraging the iPhone’s unique abilities, AroundMe quickly acquires the users location and allows them to choose the nearest bank, bar, gas station, hospital, hotel, movie theatre, restaurant, supermarket, theatre and taxi.

Choose a category, then browse the listings, which includes the distance from where you are. Select a listing, and this hand app displays a map and plots the route for you. You caneven save the information in your  contact list or even email it to a friend.

Another application worth using is Facebook, it makes it easier to use on your iphone.
