^^ Pandora's not available in the app store, try TuneIn radio though, I use it purely to stream AH.FM

Also which carrier are you with?

So you received my telepathic thoughts Angus?? haha I was wondering about the sleepcycle app you had ages ago. I used it last night and it was pretty inaccurate (said I was awake for the last 2 hours). Did you find it was ever really accurate?

I'm with blowdafone and it's awful, internet is slow, calls not getting through. Really detracts from having a shiny new toy

I'll give TuneIn a try. Does lastfm play music?

I can't remember (been a while since I've used it) but I think the first few nights you use Sleep Cycle it has to calibrate itself to your mattress or something? It wasn't 100% accurate, but I did find it's analyses accurate as to how I felt the next day (IE restless night's sleep = crap etc etc), and generally I found myself feeling less sluggish when I woke after using it.

Yeah having a smart phone on Vodafail makes about as much sense as having a sports car with square wheels, it frustrates the hell out of me, my bus stop is a real dead spot (outside Rockafellas) and there I spend more time trying to troubleshoot and taking screenshots of time outs with full 3G coverage than I do actually browsing or doing anything (complete and utter fail)

I just got out of my contract so looking at changing to Helstra in the not too distant future.

Not sure about the app (again it's not in the Aus app store, it's easy enough to save a shortcut to the mobile last.fm site to your homescreen though (the icon for it looks good too)

The background audio service is friggin cool as well, try out the TuneIn, Beatport or iTunes Music Store app (I think it works with the YouTube app as well). Play audio through said app, and click home to go to your home screen, the audio should keep playing as though the app is still open. Double click the home button and swipe the multi tasking toolbar to the right. The iPod icon's been replaced by said app and the playback controls now control that app.

Ok, new fav app... I'm currently listening to a Colombian hip hop station

EDIT: How does this work exactly, does it chew into my data? If I listened to it for a couple of hours a day would it get close to hitting my cap (I'm only on 3gig)? I downloaded iiQuota but I don't know how to set it up

It'll go through your data eventually depending on the quality of the stream, (two hours at 128kbps is just over 100mb). Can you log into My Vodafone at all? I use Consume to monitor data on my iPhone and from memory the username is your phone number (with no spaces or dashes) and your password is your My Vodafone password, I think there's a link to change your password on there as well.

Ask away.

I work for Telstra. Happy to explain whatever.....

P.S. Angus i would just go with Telstra prepaid if you already have a recent handset...same value as postpaid plans and less headache.

I might hit up Telstra prepaid as soon as I can get away from Vodafail, then sit and wait for some epic 4G phones to come out.

I love the game but even with touch it's super fucking frustrating! Just doesn't have the precision needed IMO, might have to try the pc version.

It's a **** of a game. It's always out to try and trick you, or scare you into doing something you shouldn't.

Like when they all line up in a row, and then shoot out. It's like they're soldiers or something forming an attack.

It's pretty satisfying getting all the wavey ones is a row though (I think they are the purple ones?)

When you upgrade your phone do a backup in iTunes of your old phone first, it'll restore data and settings back onto your new one.

Yeah, and that's why I just cant play it on the touchscreen. It just feels shit to control; I always find it jerks the paddle when I'm trying to move slowly...shit like that.

Anyhoo, I came here to say this:

I generally don't go for chains unless they're totally obvious, I'm not that good at seeing them past a couple of drops anyway Fluked a 9 in that game!

If one happens, awesome...but I never really plan them. I try and think ahead with the number placements mostly...like, putting a 6 in the 6th column, stuff like that. It's so easy to get shafted by the greys because you have NFI what number they are. Had quite a few games where I've ended up with a massive block of all 1s which, obviously, you can't fucking get rid of as they'll never be alone on a line!

Just keep playing, man; the strategies pretty much just started forming in my head the more time I put into it

It was alright for a bit, but I think it got to the point where it was too repetitive without buying a few in app purchases

You get points for the amount of coins you collect, and you unlock the characters by spending the points. Maybe you can spend money to buy points for quicker unlocks but, if so, it's not shoved in your face.

It's a great little freebie imo

Was really keen deadset on trying it, until they made it you could buy gold with an in app purchase, Now I don't think I'm gonna bother

(I'm not against in app purchases either, but I am if it's a case if it gives you an advantage over other players or if you can 'buy' your way through the game.)
