Launched to celebrate Jimi's birthday, Sony has left no Hendrix stone unturned for the "Complete Experience" on iPhone.

Weathermob £Free

Although we sometimes shudder at apps that try to socialise everything about our lives, we quite like the sound of Weathermob. Take photos or video of the weather near you, choose from a selection of quirky icons and descriptions from within the iPhone app and post them to Facebook and Twitter. Less mob-like, more friendly community sharing.
