    You need an android then . I have gmail sync'd address book working with the junk call filter.

    Actually what you are saying makes sense, because I think the iphone version works by creating a new contact called "Junk Call" and then putting all the millions of junk numbers in this contact. Then when one of these junk numbers calls, you see "Junk Call" on the screen. But the android version works a different way. It doesnt create any contact to filter the junk calls.

    My iPhone is jail broken and has iblacklist installed. This filters all my calls, and ones I don't want I can put into groups whereby the call either go straight to voicemail, gets a busy tone, keeps on ringing, or doesn't get a tone at all.

    One that I like to use is called cooking-china. It works on the iPad and the iPhone and has hundreds of Chinese food recipes in both Chinese and English. It's great for using in the kitchen like a cookbook if you like to experiment with different foods like I do. Photos too.

    How about apps for blackberry? I have the CX Mobile one installed and it doesn't appear to work at all. The taxi app sounds great but does it work on a blackberry?
    Another PLEASE LET US LIKE for the Android version of geoclicks and the mobile site (which I use on the blackberry)

    Mostly, on my blackberry I just use the browser and the web version of these things (like the HK etransport site and the bus websites) - I still puzzle over the value of an "app" instead, can anyone enlighten me as to the value? (other than to fill up my memory with extra stuff).
