9 iPhone apps that will suit your hobbies

Apps that improve what you do in your free time

Grilling. Bird watching. Shopping. Whatever you do in your free time, there's an app for that. Here's a look at nine intriguing options to help you recharge.

The elusive bird watcher

Bird watching is another popular hobby. My late uncle, a bird watcher, once travelled more than 300 miles for a chance at catching a glimpse of the rare California Condor.

He surely would have spent £17.99 for iBird Explorer Pro, an iPhone app field guide that includes searchable bird descriptions, pictures, maps, and even plays bird songs.

Master grillers

Whether you're grilling steaks or cremating chicken, barbecue is one of the great pastimes and has become a point of pride among self-proclaimed grill masters.

Yet when food ends up tasting like cardboard, an entire day of leisure can be ruined. Don't let it happen!

Weber's On the Grill helps you make the perfect rub and sauce, gives grilling times for a range of meats and vegetables, and provides pictures of a successful dish.

Best of all, the iPhone lets you sneak peeks at instructions without anyone seeing you. Sadly its currently only available to US iPhone users.
