    Iphone apps for work

    Morning all,

    Just bought a Iphone 3gs in White (looks amazing in my eyes)

    Just wondering if iphone lovers out there have any "geeky" apps they use for work that may be useful to me or anybody else......

    Have the RDP app nothing else that geeky

    Cheers

    I use an RDP app, as well as a couple of the VNC ones.

    Also, 1Password can be handy as a secure repository for noting down passwords etc - but this app makes a lot more sense if you have 1Password on the Mac to sync with.

    on my iphone:

    first of all setup with your exchange server email & calendar (share your calendar so people can see what your doing and add tasks)

    APPS:

    Vmanage (if you have VMWare Virtual servers)
    VNC (free) VNC App
    iRdesktop (free) RDP App
    iNet Network Scanner App
    SNMPmon (SNMP Monitor I use it with printers for toner levels/ and servers to monitor drive space)
    MTelnet (Telnet app, to access those non gui options)
    PlugPlayer (control UPNP Media clients and servers)
    WirelessHD (Wireless Hard Disk access files on your iphone through a webbrowser)
    Skype (works even through our filtering proxies)

    Previous poster mentioning AirMouse just reminded me. Logitech Touch Mouse is new(ish) and free.

    Works very well using a tiny little application installed on either a Mac or a PC. I use it as a wireless presenter now.

    If you want to make your music dept and music techs jealous, there are a plethora of remote MIDI control and OSC control apps out there too, to allow remote control of Cubase transport and mixer from iPod Touch & iPhone...

    TouchOSC
    iTM Pad
    iTM Matrix
    iXY
    MMM
    iTM MCU
    Cubase iC


    Mobile sequencing for music students...

    MelodicaFree
    TonePad
    PaklSound1


    Virtual instruments to allow kids to practice basic music theory (yr7/8) at home... or for experimentation in class room...

    Virtuoso
    NLogFree
    KalimbaFree


    Special needs dept...
    Bloom - autistic kids particularly fond of this


    And finally, I'm sure Science Dept would appreciate braking/accel/lateral-G meter for £7.50...

    Dynolicous
    Log Box


    For personal purposes...

    VLC Remote
    Reader (parses RSS & XML Feeds)
    Moodagent (gadg show the other night - s'rather good - makes playlists based on mood)
    Disc Space (iPhone disc space)
    Battery (more precise battery meter)
    eWifi (scans for wifi)
    Support Center - head to Downloads, grab the UK network PDF... upload to fone with discover. Can find out where you can get on net for free on TheCloud thru-out the UK without needing to be connected to any other service first (unlike most of the WiFi Hotspot Apps on iTunes - and it's also distinctly more up to date too)

    Unmentioned ICT apps...

    Touchterm - SSH Client
    Flashlight - handy for in back of cabs and racks


    Schools in USA are using trays of iPod Touches as teaching aids in classes... UK is behind on this. Understandable in some schools tho - they'd vanish far too frequently.
