    Hello world

    Spaniard living in the south of Sweden. I have an iPad 2 WiFi 16 GB.

    I installed the iPF app and I registered easily but couldn't find New Member Introductions, so I turned to Safari. Anyway, I guess I need more practice.

    I hope to learn loads by using this forum.

    Welcome from Mississippi!

    You'll find lots of nice people here that can answer most any question you have.

    I don't use the app, so I'm no help I'm afraid.

    Be sure to check out the iPad manual (free), and the forum rules (also free!).

    When I saw the subject of your post, I thought about asking something about last Sunday's Hockey World Championship game, but then I saw you said you are a Spaniard, so you might not be that much into hockey...

    Welcome to the forum, nevertheless.

    Thanks a million, guys.

    I see many members from USA. Nice one! Have never been to USA (shame on me!) but it is on my 'wonderful-countries-to-visit' list.

    Jag bor i Malmö. Jobbar i Lund. Max, kan du svenska?
    I live in Malmo (the so-called Appicentrum). I work in Lund. Max, do you speak Swedish?

    Scotland!!! Fantástico! I spent two sunny months there in 1999. I love haggis, by the way. :)

    :D Not really. Don't have "so much" ice in the south of Spain.
    I'm into football (soccer) and tennis. Used to play basketball a lot when I was younger.

    Robertlc, SweetPoison and Hayles66,
    Once again, thanks for your welcome messages.

    Hola Swecodélico
    You made a mistake. I moved from the south of Sweden to Spain. That was a move from snow and ice to sun and vino tinto. Enjoy anyway!

    Saludos

    Hello and thanks to iManol, ANiceGuy and col.bris

    :D
    The thing is that I prefer the Swedish summer; it's too hot in Spain...
    ... and I like "Köttbullar med lingonsylt" and "kanelbullar"...
    ... and even though I will never get used to doing the washing in a "tvättstuga", I still have my iPad 2
    ;)

    By the way, I am tempted to open a thread regarding local apps comparison, because I have the feeling that, when it comes to country-specific apps for iPhone and iPad, Sweden is together with USA the "best country" to live in. What do you think? You may be more familiar with Spain-specific apps for iPhone/iPad than me.

    Examples
    1) Swedish banks have their iPhone apps. Can't say the same for the majority of banks in Spain.
    2) Skånetrafiken (the regional public transportation authority in the south of Sweden) developed a wonderful app for the iPhone. Can't say the same about its counterpart* in Málaga, one the biggest cities in Spain.
    * EMT Málaga, which by the way, they have a website that looks from the 90's.
    3) Apoteket (Swedish pharmacy retailer) released a free app about pollen forecast. In Spain there isn't any yet, if I'm not mistaken.
    4) Malmö has a great free app with info on location of parks, museums, bicycle pumps, public toilets, etc.

    ... and I suppose I could find a lot more examples.

    Swecodelico, you are absolute correct. My spanish bank (an internet bank) will soon release an app for iPhone. There are a few others. Next week I will go to Madrid. Metro Madrid is an excellent application. I pushed Nordstedts to make an application for their dictionaries, now "Nordstedts stora ordbok" is available in the spanish iTunes shop.

    I guess the problem with local applications is how to shop. I don´t have any swedish credit card, I can only download free applications.

    Maybe a list of free application when visiting a country...

    "Köttbullar med lingonsylt" we also have when visiting IKEA in Santa Cruz, followed by kaffe och dammsugare. Fresh baked kanelbullar are served in the Swedish Church i Los Cristianos.

    Hello from the south :)

    I don't really get how the local/global thing works.
    I found an option in settings where you can select the country for ratings, so I was expecting to have a country filter when searching for either free or paid apps in App Store, which would allow users to see local apps. Then it's just a matter of having a decent credit card for paid apps.
