    iPhone Apps "Games Etc"

    On November 9th I'll be checking in to the hospital for the second operation on my back to remove more flesh from the area my Malignant Melanoma was, this is an operation to "make sure they got it all" if that makes sense. As the Melanoma was large, they are taking a fairly large dollop of flesh this time, I'm told it will be about the size of a Hockey puck, well just a bit smaller than that, or, for those of you who did not grow up playing on frozen ponds, slightly bigger than a Skoal can.

    The docs are not being very forthcoming about recovery time, I've been able to nail them down to a window of one week to three weeks (or more) of hospital stay I know there are a lot of variables, but man, that is quite the discrepancy

    I figured out how to convert movies from DVDs to upload them onto my iPhone, but I can't do that many, but I wanted to add some good time killers too, you might call them games I have solitaire and Othello, but was looking for something a bit more interesting, I honestly do not know how much I'll be able to use them or how bad off I'll be, but if they are on the iPhone there to use, they could relieve the boredom. I'm really bad at just sitting around doing nothing, it drives me nuts!

    Thus, I'm asking for your suggestions for the iPhone 3Gs I have, I don't mind paying a buck or two for a good game either.

    Thanks!

    The two on my phone that get the most use are Midnight Pool and Need for Speed Underground.

    Others that are currently on my phone:

    Need For Speed Shift
    Yahtzee Adventure
    MX Mayhem
    Real Racing
    Blackjack Free

    Others I've had that were decent, but recently removed to free up some space:

    Asphalt 5
    Daredevil Dave: Motorcycle Stuntman (funny game, but takes almost 100 MB of space)

    The ONLY game on my iPhone, and it can be very addictive, is Unblock Me (Free).

    Stu,
    I haven't had my iTouch long enough to get a decent collection on it, And so far the only app I've paid for is ForumRunner, which lets me browse here (you guys really must rate, huh?). That being said. check out iClassics which is a free ebook reader with tons of free 'good' literature (three musketeers, 10,000 leagues under the sea... War & Peace (always good if you can't get to sleep...), but I pretty much bought my Touch for audiobooks and contacts/planning purposes. Both of which I've been using it for... plus facebook and basic web browsing when I can't get to the iMac (there's a line occasionally..)

    I won't have WiFi nor will I be able to use the 3G function except while in special designated areas, and they are super strict on that. At least with the iPhone I can put it on "Airplane" mode so I can use it for games, music etc, most cell phones here you cannot do that, so they must stay turned off while in the hospital.

    I'll check out the games you all mentioned.

    Ned, I have some books on there, but they are e-books, I had not thought of audio books I'll have to go and see what I can get, so much stuff I can't get through the Apple store here, just not offered. I wonder if I can download other books with other readers?

    Cheers!

    Stu,
    I'm not sure if you have access to it over yonder, but audible.com rocks... monthly fee, but you get a new audio book every month, for less than 'street' price. I can send you an invite if you would like.

    Skee Ball is one of my favs. Hope the recovery goes quick and as painless as possible.

    If you might get tired of the iphone, I'd be happy to email you some good puzzles that you can print off and take with you....how about pencil and paper? PM me your email address and send you some fun stuff.

    Also, I hate to be a bore, but I'm not convinced you can even have your iphone turned on in the hospital. In the hospital in Calgary I couldn't have it turned on. FWIW
