I’ve finally persuaded my boss that he needs an iphone so that he can communicate in ‘real time’ during his forthcoming work visit to Bangladesh (I don’t want to get into an arguement about whether it should have been Android or Blackberry. What’s important is that we are moving forward).

So I’ve been browsing the latest must have apps and can’t believe how wierd or how popular some of them are:

‘Geared’ is about creating working virtual gearboxes over 80 levels – it’s a regular top seller!

‘iSpy’ lets you watch other people via public webcams based across the world – that’s scary!

‘iVoodoo’ allows you to superimpose your enemy’s head on a doll and then poke it.

I don’t think I’ll be downloading any of those. However there are some very useful ones that my boss might like including; currency converters, maps and language translators. I wonder if he will be offended if I buy him the very latest app on the market, which is by Virgin, for those who hate flying:

The Flying Without Fear app features a video explanation of the flight process, frequently asked questions, relaxation exercises and a fear attack button for emergencies with breathing exercises. 

I can’t decide whether it’s a genius idea or just them jumping on the bandwagon. What do you think?
