National Trust: iPhone app review

The National Trust has just released an iPhone app which pinpoints properties and places of interest near the user's location, something which could be a good way for the Trust to attract more casual visitors to its sites. 

I've been trying out the app...


Stuck: iPhone app review

Stuck is a new social networking app that asks users around the world to describe when, why and where they are stuck. 

The Stuck app is the product of Swiftcover.com's innovation labs, and has so far been promoted organically, via Facebook (where it has 50,000 fans) and Twitter. I've been trying the app out...

Virgin Trains releases a poor iPhone app

Virgin Trains released an iPhone app recently, which is a bit of a disappointment and, judging by the low ratings it has received so far, the users seem to think so too. 

The app gives information on Virgin Trains services, and that's about it. The opportunity was there to create a useful app for customers, as thetrainline and Cross Country trains have done, but Virgin has missed this chance.

Pizza Hut iPhone app generates an extra $1m sales

Another example of the potential of mobile commerce comes from Pizza Hut, with its iPhone app generating $1m in sales in the three months since launch.

The app, which allows customers to order food on the move, is approaching the figure of 1m downloads. It is only available in the US at the moment.


App review: thetrainline for iPhone

Rail ticket retailer thetrainline has just released a new free iPhone app, which allows users to check UK train timetables and plan journeys.

With the only competition being the Rail Enquiries iPhone app, which retails at £4.99, then it could be a popular app. I've been taking a closer look...


Mobile app review: ShopStyle for iPhone

Shopping aggregator site ShopStyle has launched a iPhone app which allows users to buy fashion items from a range of retailers, including John Lewis, Net-A-Porter and others.

The ShopStyle app, launched this week, lets you browse through 4,000 brands, and then either email links to purchase later, or buy straight from the phone.

Qype improves its iPhone app

Qype, which claims to be the UK's largest local search and recommendation website, has just released an updated version of its mobile app, Radar, for iPhone users.

Like rival Yelp, Qype Radar provides local listings and reviews for mobile users, very useful when you're out and looking for somewhere local to eat, or for other local services.
