These are a few of my favourite Apps ;-)


The iPhone has a number of applications "built-in" that you may find useful as part of the project. Ones to explore are:

However there are, at the time of writing, over 350,000 applications on the Apps store. There are many that are free and many that are for sale from £0.59 upwards. Below are a few that you might like to load onto your iPhone/iPad. Before you do this you will need to have loaded iTunes onto your main computer and set up an account at the Apps Store.

Spend some time looking around and searching on the Apps store for apps that you might want to try, many apps have a "Lite" version to try for free before you commit to the buy.

There are lots of ways to access the apps store, you can do it via your iPhone of course but also via iTunes on your desktop. Trying putting religion into the search and seeing what tunes, apps and podcasts come up - there are lots!

So, some free apps
