Meet vShare: The Official Unofficial App Store

The title of this article may be confusing, but bear with me; I had a difficult time coming to terms with this bit of news myself, but the whole thing is almost too good to miss. We all know who app pirates are. They are a group of people that let you download paid iOS apps for free.

Until very recently, installing pirated paid iOS apps is not an easy task to complete. You need to jailbreak your iOS device, find a good source of clean (not modified) pirated apps, download them before finally able to install them on your iPhone or iPad. Read More...

Seng 1.2 Now Available on Cydia

There is no shortage of App Switcher tweaks on Cydia, but only a few of them actually offer improvements and features that are worth trying. This next, Auxo-inspired tweak is a perfectly good example.

Meet Seng 1.2, the latest iteration to the well-known App Switcher tweak. Seng has been garnering attention for all the right reasons. It offers a lot of features that the standard App Switcher doesn’t, plus it offers them through a very sleek user interface.

Support for iOS 9

If you are one of the people who didn’t like Auxo 3’s update for iOS 9, then Seng is the perfect jailbreak tweak for you. Read More...

Springtomize 3 Latest Update

I think it is safe to say that Springtomize 3 is one of the most popular jailbreak tweaks out there today. The tweak offers a lot of functionalities that will allow you to customize almost every part of the iOS user interface. Today, a new update has been introduced. The update added several new useful features you will certainly love.

Springtomize 3 v1.4

The latest update of Springtomize 3 does not offer a lot of changes, but it does add a lot of useful features that make customizing iOS even easier to do. For starters, you can now hide the number that appears on badges. Read More...

Auki 2 Is Coming Soon!

When Surenix and Bensge introduced Auki back in 2014, the jailbreak scene was set ablaze. Everyone was so excited about the tweak. Auki offers a wide range of features that focus on the ability to quickly reply and compose from the iOS home screen or other parts of the user interface. It does so by adding a quick-reply or quick-compose interface to the Notifications panel.

Since then, Apple has integrated most of the features that Auki offers to the stock iOS experience. You can now quickly reply to messages natively. However, I still find Auki’s overall user experience to be much more pleasant and intuitive. Read More...

Finder’s Path Bar and How to Use It

Mac OS X’s Finder is one of the most underrated pieces of software on the market today.

One of the most neglected features that Finder offers is the Path Bar. In this part, we are going to take a closer look at how this particular feature can help you save a lot of time when navigating through files and folders.

How to Show Your Finder’s Path Bar

First, let’s take a look at how the Path Bar can be enabled. Read More...

Mockingbird: A Nice App Switcher Tweak

There are several jailbreak tweaks that aim at improving the way we multitask on iOS. I personally like the idea behind this next one: Mockingbird. The experience Mockingbird can potentially bring to iOS is simply too good to miss. I say potentially, because Mockingbird is not quite as good as it can actually be.

A New Way to Switch Between Apps

For those of you who are curious, Mockingbird is available on Cydia for $1.99. It does app switching in a completely different way, offering new user experience that you wouldn’t otherwise be able to enjoy. Read More...

Swift, Apple’s Programming Language, Is Now Officially Open Source

 

The programmers of the world can rejoice – Apple, the world’s largest tech giant, has officially opened its treasuries, making its official programming language open sourced. This day is nothing short of historical.

Apple has uncovered Swift in 2014, which has caused quite a stir in the IT crowd. The reason is that it facilitated the creation of apps for Apple devices. However, in making Swift open source (a promise Apple made way, way back) means that now we can expect to see Swift on many other machines and devices – even those belonging to its bitter competitors.

Rumors on Apple iOS 9.1, 9.2 Jailbreak; Available Soon?

There persist certain rumors that jailbroken versions of the Apple iOS 9.1 and iOS 9.2 will soon be available to the wider public, even before the end of 2015. According to  certain tech experts, Apple’s security features are most probably considerably enhanced in the new software, especially if we take into consideration how the expected jailbreak models are late.

You might be asking yourself: “What in the world is jailbreaking?” Jailbreaking is defined as the method of eliminating restrictions imposed by iOS on hardware by running the device on software exploits. Users are expecting hacking groups such as Team Pangu to offer jailbroken versions of the iOS 9.1 and 9.2.   Read More...

Ever Wanted to Have Safari View Controller in Twitter, Gmail, WhatsApp and Alien Blue? Well, Now You Can!

Safari View Controller is a brand new feature in recently released iOS 9 that allows the developers to enable an in-app browser, itself based on Safari, that uses many of the features which make using standalone Safari so great. Some (but not all!) of the benefits are the possibility to use current logins, access the keychain and use autofill. And of course, there’s more – please continue reading below.

Earlier, developers had to make due with browsers of their own making for their apps, which actually meant that users couldn’t make use of ongoing logins, the keychain, or use autofill when viewing the web through said browsers. Read More...

Have a Knack for Jailbreaking? Better Get iOS 9.0.2 Fast or You’ll Be Sorry

If wanted to jailbreak your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch, it may be prudent to hurry it up. As we have mentioned earlier, iOS 9.1 destroys the Pangu jailbreak, and as such, only a little time remains before Apple shuts the door on the iOS 9.0.2 signing window.

What does it all come down to? It means that once the signing window is finally closed, you will no longer have the option to upgrade or downgrade to iOS 9.0.2, which is, as you probably know, the last available firmware that happens to fall within the scope of Pangu jailbreak for iOS 9.

Simple – the icon gives you an approximation of battery life. The icon is a shortcut as well,, linked directly to the Battery Usage section of the Settings app.

 

Similar to the the stock Clock app, BatteryIcon is a live icon; what it means is that it updates all the time in order to show current battery levels by means of a battery glyph and color (low battery shows a red color, for example) of the icon itself. Read More...

Seng: A Completely New Auxo Substitute Now Available on Cydia (Finally)

This day should enter into the jailbreak releases history books, as a huge advancement has been made. First things first, the highly sought after and requested Multiplexer finally landed on Cydia, and now, there’s Seng, another highly expected tweak, although not as anticipated as Multiplexer; however, we’re rather glad to have it with us.

Seng, as it was discussed way back in August this year, is a jailbreak tweak whose function is inspired by and based on Auxo. To be more precise, simply calling it “inspired” would be a bit of a misnomer; actually, Seng is heavily influenced by Auxo. Read More...

Amazing New Tweak: Bring Live Photos to the Older iPhones That Utilize iOS 8

Live Photos is a brand new and iPhone 6s-only app that gives a new life into boring old static photography. It lives up to expectations by shoehorning the photograph in the middle of video that was taken right before and soon after the photograph itself is taken. The subsequent impact is a “live” photograph that takes a life on its own on your screen, giving some context to the current photograph.

This new 3D Touch feature is utilized to enact Live Photos in the Photos application, and without a doubt the iPhone 6s and Live Photos were created to work hand in hand together. Read More...
