    Yeah, its the keeping it synced up that im particularly interested in. Especially given that the only Android unit i regularly use is the headunit in the car.

    Look up Rocketplayer, it had an iTunes Sync capability at one point. Haven't used it for a while.

    looking for a 'to do' list app that allows me to mark things as done, but not actually be deleted of the list, and then allow me to sort by done/not done

    recommendations?

    Google Keep does that if you tap the + and then tap 'tick boxes'

    +1 for Google Keep. Integrates with your google account, so you can access it on desktop/phone/etc. Share the notes with people. Works great.

    Eh, just means it's time to go hunt for better value elsewhere. I've signed up for the $59 Friends and Family deal - valuing the included S8 at about half the total cost (so say $720) means I'm paying $30 a month for 15GB data, and getting to pay off the phone interest free over 2 years. It's like the old days, when going on a plan was actually worthwhile!

    I haven't seen any plans worth doing as of late, I remember when the iPhone 4 came out I got on the 49 dollar business plan, unlimited calls/sms/mms and 1.5gb data, and this was in the iP4 days!

    Yeah, I referred a few people to that plan. Good times!

    I'm not surprised by the change - presumably Telstra haven't made a cent from me in years, since I've been using literally all my credit on Netflix and GPM subscriptions.

    Hey guys.

    Looking for an app that will track maps/trails for me while im riding my dirtbike, and shows things like time, avg speed etc. Hoping someone has had experience with them in the past and can point me in the right direction.

    Strava might work, I wonder how it handles dirtbike speeds considering it's for bicycling/running...

    Or you could google "strava for motorbikes"?

    Decent stopwatch app? Or are they basically all pretty good due to just being a simple thing....?

    I'm wondering if somebody could recommend a good video editing app, for basic social media use - I've been recommended Perfect Video on iOS but looking for something for Android.

    Free or Paid?

    VivaVideo is good but the free version adds a watermark to the video. Free/$4.29
    Magisto is the other one that gets good mentions but I installed it and all I get the Magisto start screen!!
    Timbre is an Editors Choice for 2017. Free/$1.99

    used to love google now but with the most recent update (a couple of days), I can't dismiss the suggestions or articles etc, which is pissing me off.

    Yeah, that update has been super staggered for some reason. Mine has been like that for months, and it's crap.
