More information at: MacFormat, 7/2009 Skype Skype for the iPhone is mostly limited by the iPhone itself. While taking full advantage of voice calls and and IM chats, it requires Wi-Fi for this and VoIP isn't yet supported. Then there is the lack of a front-mounted camera on the iPhone, limiting video calls to one-way. Other issues hopefully will be addressed in iPhone OS 3.0. … to review

It's a system that provides plenty of benefits - it's free, relatively quick, and works if you don't have GPS in your phone.

Product information and further reviews for Mobile phone software

Sky Mobile TV News & Sports MacFormat 2/2010 - Let's face it, Sky Sports is pretty expensive. ... With Mobile TV News and Sport for iPhone, Sky has made all of Sky's Sports channels (Sky Sports1, 2, 3, Xtra and News) plus ESPN, At the Races and Sky News, available to watch on Apple's device. ...

Business Card Reader MacFormat 2/2010 - ... The basic idea is that you snap a picture of someone's business card ... and the app converts the picture to text and detects which part of the image is the name, which part the phone number and so on. ...

Vlingo Voice Control for Mobile Phones TrustedReviews 12/2009 - For a number of years now, many phones have had some form of voice command system, letting you call someone on your contacts list, dial a number, play music, or check phone status just by speaking to your phone. However, the choice of functions you can perform has always been a bit limited. Well, Vlingo is here to change all that. With its sophisticated voice recognition system it adds a host of extra voice controlled features to a variety of different phones. So let's see if it's software worth shouting about. Review details: Two versions of a smarphone app were reviewed and tested. Scores of 7 points and 8 points out of 10 were awarded.

Brushes Viewer 1.1 MacFormat 12/2009 - It's common for Mac OS X apps to have associated equivalents on iPhone and iPod touch, extending their use for users of Apple's mobile platform. Unusually, Brushes Viewer heads in the opposite direction, adding value to owners of Brushes for iPhone. ...

Pocket Piano Plus for iPhone MacWorld 11/2009 - As you might guess, Pocket Piano turns an iPhone or iPod touch into a mini piano. The app comes in two versions: the 59p version has just a standard piano sound while the £1.79 version, Pocket Piano Plus, provides eight additional sounds: electric guitar, sitar, violin, flute, acoustic guitar, harmonica, dog and bagpipes. Other than the additional sounds in the Plus version, both apps function the same.

Wunder Radio MacUser 8/2009 - For some the lack of an FM tuner is a major oversight in the iPhone. Weather Underground, home of the substantial online weather reports goes one better with Wunder Radio, giving access to over 30,000 internet radio stations via a huge array of formats.

Groceries MacFormat 8/2009 - A nicely organised alternative to scribbling on a bit of paper, the “Groceries” program allows you to make a shopping list as you think of it, but cleverly organises products in groups to mirror the aisles you'd expect to find them in, in an average supermarket.

ENO Opera Guide for iPhone MacWorld 1/2010 - The ENO Opera Guide for iPhone or iPod touch offers users a chance to find out a little more about the English National Opera's forthcoming season. Based near London's Covent Garden, ENO is Britain's only full-time repertory opera company and enjoys a worldwide reputation for striking and adventurous productions.

Quickoffice Files for iPhone MacWorld 7/2009 - A simple app for iPhone that does four things: file transfer to and from your Mac via browser or mounting your device as an external drive, file viewing, file emailing and transfer to iDisk. For much of this Quickoffice Files does well, but in some areas it shows weaknesses.

Birdhouse MacFormat Summer 2009 - Taking the immediacy out of Twitter, Birdhouse for iPhone lets you draft and edit multiple notes and compose tweets for later posting. Few might need such a utility, but for those who do, this is a well-crafted app.

1Shoot MacFormat 1/2010 - The iPhone's Camera app is limited to firing the shutter when you press a button on screen. 1Shoot, however, has three modes. In its most basic it lets you tap the whole screen to trigger the shutter, and another mode lets you set a five- or 10-second timer. ...

Skype MacUser 4/2009 - A long wait has been had while Skype comes to the iPhone App Store. Its arrival has been met with much acclaim, as the market dominance of the VoIP provider and call quality increases. The only sour note is calls must be made over WiFi.

myPantone for iPhone MacWorld 11/2009 - myPantone for iPhone is a cross-referencing system for Pantone’s major colour libraries in your pocket. It lets you identify colours and experiment with colours groups while on the go. Since it’s targeted at designers who probably know their way around a colour wheel, the decision of whether to fork out £5.99 for the app may depend on how often you get out from behind your desk.

Documents 2 for iPhone MacWorld 11/2009 - Yes, of course, you can use your iPhone like a Palm or BlackBerry. You can create and share documents, too, including spreadsheets. An app such as Documents To Go will even let you work with Microsoft Word and will support Excel eventually. Savy Soda’s Documents2 enters the arena of office apps. But the all-in-one offering is rather less than the sum of its parts.

GPS on your mobile Smartphone & PDA Essentials 56/2006 - Is a dedicated GPS gadget more indispensable than a mobile phone? Well, that depends. Lost o a vacation island and running low on fuel, you'll pick a dedicated GPS receiver such as the Garmin Rhino 530 every time over a phone-home-only device. Review details: Four navigation software packages for mobile phones were reviewed and rated baed on interface, mapping, prompts and price. Scores ranged from 4 to 9 points out of 10.
