Stretching app for iPhone/iPod

Could anyone please suggest a good post-ride stretch app for iPhone/iPod? I seem to recall one being recommended in Cycling Plus recently but I can't find the article. Thanks.

    From the bottom up
    Calves - gastroc/soleus
    Hamstrings
    Quads
    Hip flexors
    Glutes/piriformis

    Lower back
    Upper back
    Lesser importance:
    Chest
    Triceps
    Shoulders
    per stretch 20/30 second

    5/6 mins or so

    If you have deeper issues. then a hard foam roller for problem areas

    I dont think you need a phone to do them but you can use it to google stretch ideas and write them in a little black book.

    While we're on the subject of apps, can anyone suggest a post-ride meal app for Android?
