I have the iCandy Apple Jogger. We got it to replace our previous travel system, which broke several times and was refunded.
I like the iCandy for several reasons. It is sturdy and easy to put up and down. I don't find any problems at all with trapped fingers (as an earlier reviewer suggested) as it's just knowing where to put your hands when lifting it. The seat unit is very comfortable and reclines nicely and my daughter is very happy in it - I love that the footrest can be altered. The footmuff is great, very snuggly.
Now for the downsides! It does, as someone else said, tip to the side when on a slope/hill - very scary when that happened, as I didn't realise it would do that. I don't find the hood particularly satisfactory as it isn't really big enough and doesn't really provide much shade. The most annoying and utterly stupid design fault though is with the raincover - it is too large for the seat unit really, and when the seat unit is facing you, the raincover can not be secured near the hood, meaning that when the wind blows it gets under the raincover and blows it off. Easily solved with a couple of eyelets and a piece of elastic, but really when you're spending hundreds of pounds it would be nice if the details had ALREADY been taken care of!
From the length of my complaints it sounds as if I don't like it, but actually I really do!
