    XBMC

    I am building up a test bed for my XBMC and wanted to know if others are doing it for the RasPi, and what apps they are having

    So far I have

    TV Catchup (basically freeview catchup)
    google mail
    facebook
    webbrowser
    youtube

    anybody got anything decent I could add?

    @JJonas no other functionality, just the ability to connect it to my HDTV and free up my laptop.

    Same here, though I am adding a bluray drive to mine and mounting it to my tv (I've modded a VESA mount to do the job)
