The main purpose of TheMacBox was as a means of hosting our iPhone WebApps. Although we have decided to implement a blog into the site as well, WebApps will remain to be the focus of our attention and time.
Time is something that, as students, we are fairly short of. Similarly, money is something we could always use a little more of so, if you have enjoyed the site or use one or more of the WebApps, please consider donating. We don’t believe in charging for software (we’d rather everyone was able to use it) but it does cost money to run this site, and uses a lot of our time. If you’d like to help us out, there’s a donate button in the bar at the right side of the page.
This is an app for UK train travellers that let’s you quickly and easily check the time of a train on your iPhone. It’ll
show you your journey options and let you see more details of each, as well as letting you save journey details for future
access without internet (great for iPod Touch users!).
This is an app we made that lets you view the UK Top 40 chart on your iPhone or iPod, and touch any item to view it on the
iTunes WiFi Music Store, where you can listen to a 30 second preview of the song and buy it. It shows the singles and
album charts and shows album art for the top 10 items. See below for a US version.
This app let’s you quickly and easily check if an original XBOX game is compatible with the XBOX 360. So say you’re out at
a games shop and you see a game you fancy but don’t know if it’ll work on your 360 or not, you can check on your iPhone.
Peg Solitaire is our first game for the iPhone. It is a version of the classic Peg Solitaire game, where the aim is to jump
pegs on the board over other pegs until there is only one peg left. A classic game that’s great fun on your iPhone.
iPipes is a game where the aim is to build a pipe long enough to meet the levels goal, but each level the water flowing into
the pipe gets faster, and your goal length gets longer! It saves your longest pipe too, so you’ll know your personal best!
This is a US version of our UK music chart above, based on the Billboard music charts, with all the same great features like
the ability to touch any item to view it on the iTunes WiFi Music Store, where you can listen to a 30 second preview of the song
and buy it. Just like our UK version, it has the singles and album charts and shows album art for the top 10 items.
This app let’s you easily find lyrics for songs by searching by artist, title or both. If we think
we know what you’re looking for, the app will take you straight to the lyrics, otherwise, it’ll show
you a list of results.
iFindPictures is a WebApp for the iPhone & iPod Touch that lets you easily search for pictures on your device, for quickly remembering what someone or something looked like or maybe for showing a friend.
