    Yoohoo! Just signed up to this forum/app via iPhone today! Ooh well excited with lots of advice, ideas and support about!

    I get a number (say 1) showing on my iPhone app icon but when I go into the minimins app, it doesn't tell me where that updated thread is? So you have to remember where you've posted and look in there? (unlike the Facebook app which tells you through Notifications where the post update is).

    I'm sure there's an easier way??!

    Loving the site! Soooo much info!

    I may soon be joining the minimins app community..
    I'm borrowing my nephews Ipod to see if I like the various apps I want to try, and will then either be getting an Iphone4 so I can use the 3g, or an Ippod touch and just use it in wifi spots..

    Hi ColJack, I use the I-pod touch (am now)
    and I'm quite happy with it.
    The functions, apps and ease of use are great,
    I'm looking to upgrade, but wanted a better camera than the I-phone offers, I like the Internet on this, and I need to check out the usability of the phones Internet function, I like Nokia, not keen on Samsung, but that was 3 or 4 years ago, maybe an HTC, oh....decisions, decisions -I don't know :-(

    the Iphone 4 has a 5MP camera, and an app to raise that to 7MP..
    anything better than that and you're into a proper camera really..

    Ah, thanks, didn't know the camera could be upgraded....the Nokia N8 has a 12MP, and the other thing with the iPhone is the non removable storage - need a think and a demo of some of the others before deciding

    bah, my nephew can't lend me his Ipod, his witch of a mum won't let him.. ( she dislikes our side of the family for some reason.. no idea what, we've been nothing but nice to her.. )..

    so now I have to decide to either bite the bullet and get the Iphone on a 2 year contract ( or 12 months if I pay £350 for the phone ), or pay £170 for the Ipod touch...

    Ouch - that's bad news..... do you have an apple store you can visit? I spent about 2 hours in one just fiddling about and checking with the staff if I had any questions before buying - handy if you can get to one

    You aren't restricted to the iphone, I've just upgraded my phone from an iPhone 3g to an HTC phone, Android phones also benefit from the Minimins app, and having used both, I actually prefer the Android one, it looks cleaner and sharper somehow. And, you know, you don't have to sell a limb to be able to afford one. Which is a bonus.

    I use my HTC wildfire MM app all the time, I hardly ever use the laptop now... Which pleases Kev as he gets more time on there now...

    HTC was one I was thinking about, I like the idea of SD card storage & microsoft office functions, but not sure on how the internet browser operates (the ipod touch is like a desk/laptop) and the camera size is only 5MP I think

    I use my iPod all the time hardly ever use my laptop now. It does take some getting used to the tiny little keyboard & even now after months I still hit the wring buttons and make stupid spelling mistakes lol. Oh and be careful if you have auto correct turned on cos that can make some really funny mistakes, there's even a website devoted to that :)
