    One thing I was shocked at was the apparent free Sky sports app (the one that lets you watch the footie) adds 5 a month to your subscription - the sneaky gits

    The Sky Player app was free up until December and then cost 5 a month. I subscribed when I had an i-phone, but haven't cancelled it, so I assume I'm still been charged for it.

    As I understand it yes, they want an extra 5 a month for you to watch sports on your mobile, bit of a piss take that one

    I have an I-Pad and share the same problem except they want 10 a month for the privilege. No thank you.

    I have managed to successfully avoid charges by having an ancient phone.

    the App i really want is kindle. PPB sings it's praises and with the difficulty in getting English language books where i am, it's the APP i'm looking into when the finances will run to it.

    Check the apps store for the top paid/top free apps of the moment. The ones on 'sale' normally rank near the top.

    But I paid for the following from my list (no more than 59p):

    Speedball 2: Evolution
    Streetfighter 4
    FOTTV - tells you what games are on telly, and which channels etc
    FIFA 11
    Jaws
    Angry Birds (+ associated special editions)
    Cut the Rope
    Who Wants to Be A Football Millionaire?

    They all rule. Some will now be more expensive as I got them in a sale, so like I say - check every so often.

    The one let down of my current phone is available apps, or the lack of them, as it was the only phone made using that OS hardly anyone made the effort to produce anything for it.

    Thought I'd bump this - got an app today called Photosynth. It allows you to take panoramic photos and stitch them together. Done correctly, the results are absolutely superb.

    And it's free.

    Fruit Ninja. Amazing.

    Obviously, you have to get Sky Go, the Sky Sports Soccer Saturday Score Centre, Angry Birds, Cut the Rope etc etc.
