    Apps I'm using on my Desire...

    Places Directory - Pretty good but can have odd things in the wrong place like a local Indian restaurant in the cinema section, which had reviews for an Italian eatery in Cheetham Hill (which is about 20 miles away).

    AK Notepad
    Google Sky Maps
    Screen Mode Widget
    Pure Calender

    Juice Defender, does what it says on the tin, um, if the tin says "shut loads of things off when the phone is in standby mode to preserve battery life"

    Sounds like just the app for Glastonbury, cheers!

    I use Astro quite a bit, it's quite a handy file manager.

    you'll probably need one of them solar powered chargers as well for a long festival though

    Have you tried one? I'm wondering how practical it would be to leave the battery charging in one whilst at a festival. I'm probably gonna take another battery and turn the phone off as much as possible.

    no but I'm very tempted, I wonder if it could be attached to a backpack or back of a jacket so it would charge as you went around yer business...

    A material that could be used to make clothing with, which would then charge any device about your person would be good.

    No doubt it has already been invented but because the inventor has also designed the range of clothing it will never take off.

    actually it does seem to have been (well ok, an allweather coat with solar panels built into the arms). Plus you can get backpacks with solar panel chargers in them. Quite spendy though.

    It's quite impressive, but the lack of a separate cue output prevents you from doing anything serious with it. Good fun though, and a nice demonstration of the power that's available in the Desire.

    Can anyone point me in the direction of a bulletin board reader? There used to be touchbb but it seems to be unavailable for Android now.

    I use tapatalk. If you can't find an app on the market, it can usually be found by googling for the .apk. You'll have to allow install of non market apps mind.

    Does ChompSMS let you ignore/block sms from certain numbers/contacts? Or does anyone know a way/app to do so?

    edit: ah ha. You can blacklist contacts on chompsms.

    I got a prompt yesterday evening to do an 'over the air' upgrade to 1.21.405.2 (Firmware 2.1-update1)

    I'm on Orange (unbranded HTC Desire handset via Carphone Warehouse)

    On the games front - the Red Club Poker application is a pretty sweet free Poker client for those who like that sort of thing.
