Just thought that you all should know, FIFA has just released an official app called, creatively, "FIFA Official App"  ;)

Apparently offers some kind of coverage on the WC draws tomorrow. It's more than just some app that they've thrown out for the draw tomorrow though, it apparently offers Football news, lives scores for many many clubs and all nations and access to FIFA rankings. It actually seems like a good little app, have it set to show scores for Germany, USA, England, Liverpool and the Sounders and got all that set up in under 5 minutes. Still will probably be sticking to Live Score Addicts (if you haven't already gotten it, I HIGHLY recommend it) for live scores, but this FIFA app is interesting at the least. Will be interesting to see if they just end up abandoning it after a few months or if they stick with it, because it certainly has potential.

Want a iPad to watch Sky Go, surf the net and play the odd app.

Would a mini suffice or is a normal one better for watching footie?

I also recommend Eurosport Live Score app. Recently updated it all and it's not brilliant and very easy to navigate.
We already have shit in the country, and the game of Liverpool fills life with joy. Thanks

Has anyone bought a replacement screen (digitizer) off one of the sellers on eBay? Is it worth it or is it money down the drain?

Buy the full digitizer/LCD assembly as it's as simple as undoing 2 screws, removing screen and attaching 3 connectors, otherwise a digitizer only replacement is a ball ache it costs a bit more, about 20 quid but worth it

The wife and I have just got our first piece of Apple kit and to be honest I don't really know where to start. Aside from the usual Facebook, Twitter etc what other apps should we get? Obviously we'll have some non iTunes content which we would to put on so an app for that would be great.

Nice one!

Download pages, keynote, iPhoto, and iMovie for free (if your device is new).
All good bits of software.

TV catchup is well worth it, and skygo if you have sky.

Thats shite now to be honest, was once good but hardly got any channels since it lost the court case.

If you have Sky then Sky Go and the Sky Remote app are great. Zeebox is a good TV Guide.

If you read a lot of blogs then Feedly is a great reader.

If you aren't a fan of the offy Twitter app (I'm not) then Hootsuite is a good alternative.

Whatapp is a good alternative to iMessage as lets you send texts/photos/vids free to each other and others using the app.

Shazam is great for identifying a clip of music.

BBC Weather app is better than the normal iPhone one I find.

Fucked it up in what way? Cant connect to it anymore?

Same happened to my girlfriends, she took it the Apple shop and said they couldn't fix it. It was just recently out of warranty but they said because of EU Consumer Law or something it has to be fit for purpose for 2 years. So they gave her a document to take to Phones4U basically saying it cannot be repaired and got it replaced free of charge

The Wi-Fi wont work. The button ( slider ) is always greyed out. Shop said it can be sent off as its passed its 12 month warranty and will cost £130 i think. She said she has encountered a few of these issues. We have shit network coverage at home so it would be good if she could connect to our home network.

Yeah that's what happened to my girlfriends, the grey slider was permanently greyed out. Apparently it's a pretty common problem with the 4. And when it comes to thing like upgrading the software it overheats and fries the wifi chip

This is a question on behalf of my missus and yes we're both technologically challenged.

She has an ipad 2, mainly uses it for facebook but anytime she tries to watch a video that someone has posted it wont let her play it, saying she needs to download adobe flash player, but when she tries to download this it says it isnt supported for this device. I've tried to download a couple of other video player type things but these dont seem to work.

So, what can i do to solve this little dilemna of hers?

Apple devices don't support Flash, so if the videos are encoded in flash then they can't be played.

If she is using the Facebook app then she shouldn't have an issue as think they encode the videos in a way that can be played on the iPad. Saying that I also thought they did it on the website too.

If she really wants to use the website and watch flash videos then can download Puffin Browser which allows Flash to be played.

Can anyone help me out with this problem I'm having with ITunes and my Ipod? I've tried googling but all the answers are poor and not working so far.

I've recently bought some songs off the store and I synced them to my Ipod then when I went onto my Ipod to listen to the songs there was duplicates of each song? How do I delete them even if there only showing as 1 song as normal on ITunes?

Any help would be appreciated.

Same with mine but close the app completely, re-open and it should work! I think with the amount of users who have jumped on the bandwagon over the last few days its going to be a bit laggy.
