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.

Stressed out? jump on your bike

After a long work week, many folks hop on their bikes on a Saturday morning. Biking is not just exercise, but a chance to be outdoors on the open road.

Self sufficient. Going green. It's about as far from work as you can get in a matter of minutes - and, of course, the iPhone has an app for that. B.iCycle GPS, which costs £5.99, makes sure you don't get lost and tracks your distance, speed, hills climbed and even calories burned.

Smart snowboarders and ski bunnies

Most of us love the thrill of rippin flake and hitting a backside 180. Confused? Here's a snowboard jargon dictionary. But time off of work is rare, the ski lifts far away.

Ski & Snow Report, a free iPhone app, provides the latest ski reports of your favourite spots, showing base snow and new powder, weather forecasts and cams of runs.Sadly its only available in the US at the moment.
