    I have friends that have iphones and I was wondering if there are any other apps that are compatible with eachother, only one I know of is "bump". I'm not talking about apps that are both available for each, but apps where you can play games with eachother, GPS locators ect.

    I know the real popular chess app, I think it's called chess with friends, or something like that, is being worked on for a port to android.

    OurGroceries is compatible with both, so if husband has Android and wife has iPhone they can still share the grocery list on both phones.

    Bump, I think it's called, works between models. Also, a GPS based game out there called Parallel Kingdoms. And of course Papaya Free.

    I'd also love to know what other apps work between platforms. My girl is an iPhone fanatic.

    Hoccer is great. Way better than Bump.

    Both Hoccer and Bump are based on sharing data over the internet though.

    Not to get too shameless in self promotion (sorry) but Listables (my app, in sig) lets you share data over bluetooth, no internet required, and there's no chance of it ending up in the wrong person's hands-- no need for the app to guess who you are trying to send data to.

    Unfortunately I have no iPhone client as of yet but may develop one next year if it catches on enough.

    Bump for Android also doesnt let you share music and requires all kinds of signing up (I think?).

    Hoccer only lets you share one item at a time too.

    Anyways, sorry to derail the thread a bit. But I recently read all this stuff about how people are waiting for bump to implment music sharing when I already have in my app heh.

    (You may now return to your regularly scheduled programming ;) )

    Android name iPhone name

    word fued / Words with friends
    cafe story / Cafe story
    restaurant Story / Restaurand story
    farm Story / farm Story
    Real Estate Tycoon 2 / Build a lot

    cafe, restaurant and farm story you will need to choose a used id... If you use the same id for all these games your friends can easily find you and add you to their neighbours lists. These games are completely compatible with each type of phone and run off internet. These are all FREE to download.

    Hope these help... (id: kellogan - story games!)
