I'll second the recommendation for Affinity Photo. I'm ditching my Creative Cloud subscription. I was never happy with their raw processing, and increasingly fed up with their business model.

I've just bought Affinity Designer as well.

Another vote for Giffgaff

Buy a secondhand phone. Use Giffgaff - 250 minutes calls, unlimited texts and truly unlimited internet with a £10 a month "Goodybag", no contract so can be changed anytime.

Works for me!

I took a chance on this. Installed Ok on my Nexus One and I did a quick test within 15 minutes so I bought it.

The speech recognition seems to be done locally and is awesomely accurate. Just don't pause for too long as it will process and exit - I will probably keep this switched off and use manual exit. The keyboard swiping also looks good.

The point about installing to the SD card is a good one, hopefully this will be addressed at some stage.

Another reason...

... why many developers won't touch iPhones. I'm concentrating on Android, then Windows Phone 7 if it takes off.

Apple's control freakery will do them serious damage in the long term.
