Now you command a mighty Pony Unicorn that braves the space only with his magical powers and his Astronaut Helmet with WiFi antenna. You won't something crazy like this on App Store!

Unmissable.

FStream is useful because unlike most of the internet radio apps available this allows you to get BBC radio. See BBC Radio iPhone Streams for details.

Thank you!

Does anyone know if there's a version of this app for ios 6.1.3?
Or another app which'll let me stream BBC6 music?

Tunein radio is my app of choice for such things.
Right! What's next?

Ooooh. That sounds like a daft idea.  I am in!

There is an official BBC Iplayer app that lets you stream radio.

I also use Tunein Radio. I find it often works better than the official BBC iPlayer app, which occasionally hangs (probably due to my crap internet connection at home - Tunein gives you a choice of streaming quality and I usually choose the lowest quality available).

Coming up to 4 years of iPhone ownership and I still haven't bought a single app. All installed apps have been the free ones.

At a guess, I've probably spent something like £100 on apps over a similar period. It's far too easy to do at 69p a time - though I've paid considerably more than that for some apps, if I thought they were really worth it.

£25 a year isn't too much of a hardship. It's a tiny sum compared to what I spend on the contract.

I look to you as my role model. ;)

If you need to read a lot of PDFs then PDF Expert is very good (paid app) but I recommend an iPad not an iPhone.

AmpLitube is a brilliant if you have an electric guitar. It emulates loads of amps, cabinets and stomp boxes plus you can get an 8 track recorder. There is a free version with a single amp and the a paid for version with more. Loads of tempting in app purchases though so be warned (such as a licensed Fender pack with a Supersonic, Blues Junior etc). You need an iPad or iPhone to guitar interface (I use an iRig stomp).

I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

Otter is excellent for speech-to-text transcription - amazing if, like me, you're the kind of person who'd like to use a dictaphone but can't be arsed to listen back through your recordings.
Google Translate really comes into its own when you point the camera at text...
Garmin Connect and Strava, obviously.
Tesco Clubcard because you need it to get Clubcard Plus benefits (yes, I've sold my soul to the Church of Tesco).
Night Sky is a neat stargazing app.
