CM 1980s Legends football manager game hits the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch

Footie

Remember we featured Championship Manager 70s Legends for the iPhone a while back? Well, a new version has just landed, taking things on a decade with CM 1980s Legends.

It's much the same, with a few key changes for the era, which means an authentic database of players from the 80s, loads of genuine news stores and images to give a flavour of the era, different start dates in the decade, an 80s retro interface, the option to tie in the game with Facebook and Twitter plus all the detail you crave - formations, commentary, match day build-up etc. If you start in 1986, there's no European football either, just like the real thing.

Sadly there's no 4th division, so no option to recreate Phil Neal's mighty Bolton team of that decade, although presumably John McGovern's crocks are there from earlier in the decade. if you can live with that (and I'm sure you can), £1.79 is the price at the Apple app store.

iSupr8 app - more Super 8 movie shooting for your iPhone

Isupr8

You might recall the 8mm Vintage Camera app we featured a few weeks back. Well, now there's another operating in similar territory - the iSupr8 app for the iPhone.

It's not a million miles away from the other app in theory- shoot video directly from the app, giving it a film-burn just like Super 8 home movies. Once shot, you can watch your video back, save the videos to your camera roll, email them or add to Facebook. There's also the option to use the iPhone's LED spotlight for shooting in the dark.

A video over the page gives you an idea of how it works. Read the reviews of both apps before you go for one, but if you opt for this, it sells for $1.99 or £1.19.

Championship Manager 70s Legends for the iPhone and iPod touch

Cm70s

In a way, I'm surprised it's taken so long - a football manager game with a retro twist. Which is what you get with Championship Manager 70s Legends.

The title says it all, the long-running football manager sim now lets you manage a team full of 1970s legends - so buying the likes of Billy Bremner, Kevin Keegan, Kenny Dalglish, Pele, Johan Cruyff, and Franz Beckenbauer is just a click away. Not just the players, the rules have changed back to the 70s too, which means the likes of 2 points for a win and 1 substitute only in England.

Choose from seasons 1970/10 through to 1979/80 and various countries, with each season complete with authentic, illustrated news stories from throughout the decade reflecting events as they happened. Available for the iPhone and iPod touch, it sells for £1.79.

8mm Vintage Camera app for the iPhone and iPod touch

8mm

Yesterday we reminded you about our vintage camera apps article, but today we've spotted something equally as good for moving pictures - the 8mm Vintage Camera app for the iPhone and iPod touch.

It's as it sounds, an app that allows you to turn the video camera on your Apple device into a vintage movie camera. By mixing and matching films and lenses, you can recreate the atmosphere of a bygone era with 25 timeless retro looks, complete with dust and scratches, retro colors, flickering, light leaks, frame jitters, whatever you want to add for 'authenticity'.

Five of the best: Vintage camera apps for Apple's iPhone

As retro as we all like to be, it's useful to have a modern handset and we're guessing many of you currently use Apple's iPhone. But the iPhone can be retro too, especially when it comes to photography. In fact, there are so many retro camera apps out there, we thought we would sort out the good from the bad.

Specifically, picking out what are, in our opinion, the five best vintage camera apps for the iPhone.

1. Hipstamatic

It's the star of the show, at least in terms of sales. It comes with three rolls of vintage-style film (simulated of course). plus a selection of lenses and flashes for the initial price. Once you're in, you can buy more, as well as share via the social networks and if you love your work lots, you can even order your analogue prints.

It's the market leader for good reason and is easy to use. But unless you start spending, you might get a little bored of the limited options fairly soon.

We like: Ease of use, finished and the options to share.
Not so sure about: Cost of add-ons and how quickly we got tired of the initial set up.

Price: £1.19
