You don't need a computer to download apps on an iPad, you just need an iPad and wifi. I've never connected my iPad to my computer.

I don't use wi-fi, I don't like the idea of bringing hundreds of pounds worth of equipment into town just to use the free wi-fi there, again there should be no reason I can't download using the... uh... not broadband... i'm on a contract with three-mobile...... lets just say broadband for now.
Well, you know what they say. The past is a foreign country - - With an outdated military and huge oil reserves!

It's £9.99!!! :shock:

Think I'll pass - I've got maps, and there doesn't seem to be anything new.

If the promotional video is accurate, it shows people moving around on the map. I suppose it might even be possible that there would be a professional mugging somewhere, but as I don't do apps, I'll never know.

I thought apps were supposed to be helpful in some way.

What exactly does this one do?

Lets you walk around and find characters from the books I think, someone with an Ipad may tell us when they have played it.

It's not for all iPads though... :( only for those capable of running iOS6 - which by chance mine is not! I believe the phrase rhymes with "Clucking Bell"
