There was recently an article in a local newspaper about the most bizarre and ridiculous iphone applications. The one that sticks in my mind is the one that rates your licking ability by licking the screen. I think one needs to be really drunk, stoned or just have a low iq to think it might be a good idea.
Anyway, I couldn't find the article,but here's another one on bizarre applications.
And I am not suggesting you get any of them!

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Access to Insight has an iphone app that basically bundles all their content for offline browsing.

As I don't mind reading off the screen, I've found it quite useful.

I'm not aware of any other useful dhamma-related apps.

With metta,

Jason

ps: just occurred to me that your [email protected] ref was probably Access to Insight :)

I only have the Access to Insight app and a meditation timer.
Let it come. Let it be. Let it go.

Hi jc,

Besides the ATI app you can place links to any website, many of which are mobile friendly, right next to the apps on the screen…they're basically the same thing only requires being online…I've got DhammaWheel, Buddhism A to Z, Buddhanet, the ATI Uposatha calendar, and some others, Buddhist oriented (blogs, meditation, Nanavira, and more)…as you probably know there's a multitude out there now, and more everyday…check out the religion section of the App store too…plenty of free ones there as well... :coffee:

I like "Noble Paths", which is a standard goal setting app refurbished for setting goals related to the 8fold path. So maybe you set a goal to really focus on Right Speech for a week, and make daily progress reports about your efforts.

I use a PDF reader that has all of the dhamma material in PDF that I've collected.

Bhikkhu P. A. Payutto has a few books available in App format, which are handy references.
"As I am, so are others;
as others are, so am I."
Having thus identified self and others,
harm no one nor have them harmed.

Hi JC

There is F Max Muller's translation of the Dhammapada (with notes and annotations) and also Zen Timer, a highly customisable meditation timer.
