It never ceases to amaze us the kind of things developers can get up to when they have a jailbroken iPhone to play with. Granted there are the plethora of themes and notification replacements but every so often we get something that breaks the mold. Something comes along that reminds us of just how talented the iOS development community really is.
Apple's iPhone 4 has become one of the world's favorite cameras over the last year. A cursory look at the photo stats from Flickr shows just how popular the iPhone 4 is when it comes to taking snaps, with huge numbers of photographs uploaded daily.
We've all been there. Apple releases a new version of iOS, you wait for the jailbreak to become available and you update. The problem now though is you're left facing the long and tedious task of getting your iPhone back to just the way you like it. After a good while becoming intimately acquainted with Cydia and a lot of restarts later you're done. But chances are you've forgotten something and you'll be doing the Cydia shuffle again.
Part of the world's love of music is sharing new tracks and albums with friends, bringing new musical discoveries along with it. With our always-connected lives and always-on devices sharing musical tastes is easier than ever, and with a new jailbreak tweak you can let your Facebook friends in on your latest favorite track.
While Apple's iPhone 4 is now slouch in the speed stakes, we could all use a little speed boost now and again. With today's iOS apps and games becoming increasingly power-hungry, squeezing every last clock cycle out of our hardware is a must, and if you jailbreak it's entirely do-able too.
Since I'm a frequent Google Maps and Foursquare user, I keep my GPS set to on at all the times. We all know how sucky that can be towards the battery but I'd get really sick of turning GPS on and off manually each time I had to use either of the apps.
We have already reported about how the iPhone or iPad running on iOS 4.x has been secretly tracking all your moves. Security researchers have revealed that iPhone tracks user’s location and stores it in a secret hidden file which is replicated to the computer once it’s synchronized with the device.
Back when iOS 4.3 was in its beta days, all the fuss was about its fancy new multitouch gestures for switching between apps as well as returning to the home screen on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
Well that took longer than any of us really expected. Mark today in your calendars folks, for this is the day iOS saw its first key logger to be released onto Cydia.
