Best Apps for iPod?
« on: October 27, 2010, 12:33:23 AM »
Finally got an iPod touch. I already have the BrewPal software (don't really care for it) what other apps out there are must haves? Doesn't have to be beer related.

I belive you can get Angry Birds for it.

Last.fm  - internet radio on your ipod touch
the book reader is cool - lot's of free books
redlaser - scan any UPC and it will find the cheapest price in your area (location aware program)

Well, if you jailbreak, installous is, by far, the best "app" - beeralchemy is way better than Beer Smith or ProMash IMO - I use it when I'm stuck away from a comp and I need some quick beer math.

I don't think I jailbreak... what's that? Besides the point, I tried beer alchemy and didn't like it much. If you could get it for an ipod I might give it a second chance.

Homebrew calculator is good for some quick beer math.  It would be really nice if they had a hydrometer adjustment calc though.  That might not be an ipod app.  I have a Droid.

Anyone editing video on the ipod?
There's a few programs out there, but everybody's is "the best" so it's hard to choose

I have Brewmath which is a great conversion and estimating tool. Of course Brewpal as you mentioned is pretty good.
I checked out beeralchemy but don't find it any better that beersmith that I use on my PC.

I also have beercloud but that is a brewery/brewpub finder which is pretty cool.

I'm sure there will be more apps popping up as time goes on.

I like this app but there's a bunch of functionality they need to add.  Supposedly there will be 2.0 version at some point.

Plants v. Zombies is best game I've played. Highborn is a fun RTS game and it's free.

Do you think anyone would advertise that they have "the third best video editing program for your iPod!"?

I have a Droid too... And I'm selling my iPhone today. Jailbreaking is rooting the phone or removing the restriction that allows one to install apps that apple and att don't want installed. So you thought you had a choice huh? Already did it to the droid phone.

Anyway, I'm seeing a lot of the same apps available for both types.
