    Do they work?

    Which are the best?

    Can I still surf the web and use other apps while the sound plays in background?

    Thanks

    Well, the title piqued my interest - tomorrow leaving for a 4-day trip to the NC mountains in the far southwest portion of the state (near the TN border) - will be doing some 'gentle' hiking (if the rain holds off) - usually use non-smelly bug spray, BUT a potential app - :D

    Now, we're not going to carry our iPads on these hikes but am curious about the comments from others - I understand the principle, however, not sure if it really works - :)

    I just loaded the app and can't hear a thing. Which proves I'm not a mosquito. See if it works.

    I don't have much mosquito around to test the app but according to BBC News Magazine it's not working, this was dated last year so maybe the new Mosquito buster app today get the right ultrasound signal frequency.

    Hi Andrew - thanks - our 43rd wedding anniversary; staying at the Snow Bird Lodge (our 2nd visit there - first 2011) - below a couple of pics from around the lodge on our first visit; room decks overlook these mountains (part of the Nantahala National Forest) and have a 'private' hot tub; plus, great food at their restaurant - taking extra books & some DVDs (along w/ our iPads; Wi-Fi in the lodge) in case the rains prevent our outdoor activities. Dave :)

    I would have been interested in that type of app too. My family is heading out next Saturday for 2 weeks of camping.

    I believe the mosquito app is on the same lines as my scratch and sniff app. I would like to know how many nose prints were left on iPad screens after I posted this:
