Reset Your Home Screen Layout with SetBack

We all have our favourite home screen layouts. We’re used to icons being in their correct places; it’s almost muscle memory once you have used iOS for some time. I understand how annoying it is to have the home screen changed for whatever reason. You can have a niece playing with your phone and messing up your home screen. You may be trying new themes or changing home screen configurations.

No matter how badly the home screen is messed up, you can always return to your favourite layout in just a couple of taps. Read More...

App Store Redirects Disrupting Cydia User Experience

Cydia is a wonderful platform where developers and iOS users can exchange new tweaks – or even sell them – and do wonders with iOS. However, Cydia is not without its own faults. The repositories that host iOS and jailbreak tweaks are now flooded with app store redirects. Recently, it has been more and more annoying.

App store redirects aren’t really annoying if they happen once every now and then (or at least once every time we want to install a new tweak or jailbreak app.). The problem is, the current state of Cydia forces users to deal with five – sometimes more – app store redirect popups. Read More...
