    Too many to mention.

    That's testimony to my membership in AA.

    Yes - but they don't know you mean Appaholics Anonymus....:D

    My biggest disappointment is the free app that you use as a '3' network customer - it doesn't even respect screen orientation, its touch 'sensitivity' is awful and it let's you play a game to get your network usage - really? What were they thinking. Bizarre....

    Pricewise Smartpad was the largest let-down so far. It's an organizer app, which is supposed to be smart, but somehow the developer forgot to include a weekly overview, not to mention that it shows events on the wrong date (always one day early) :mad:

    Regret

    Buying GarageBand now that I have Amplitube, apart from that none really, although Dead Space (due to my inablity to aim properly) will last until the Ipad3 is released :D

    Daily Notes didn't hit my spot :( I ended up with an app costng a fraction of the price giving me exactly what I wanted :)

    Since it looks like this thread is going to 'take off' it might be worth reminding Members that you can get a refund for any app that fails to satisfy. Just call the Apple Support line with the reference number of your puchase (on your iTunes invoice) and the refund will be credited to your iTunes account. Many members have done this and I've yet to hear of a case where a refund has been refused. (If you want to be cynical then it's because Apple keep their cut of the original purchase price and the developer refunds the full amount to the original purchaser).

    Thanks Tim, thanks for blurting out my shameful vice. I was hoping peeps would decipher 'AA' as my raving 2 bottles of scotch a day habit. Much more respectable. Thanks mate. Just hope nobody I know reads this thread. I'd be finished.

    Same here, way too many to mention.

    I do a bit more research now before purchasing an app.
