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...

Listening to music is probably one of the most classic uses of our iPhones, as the iPod/Music app has been present on the iPhone since it was released back in 2007.

QR Mode: QR Code Reader for Your iOS Camera App

QR code is one of the easiest ways to share links, actions and other content visually. Users can simply scan the code and perform the action. Retailers and service providers are using QR codes to share discounts, promotional information and even lead users to a landing page where they can make a purchase.

Remove iPhone Camera Modes with CameraModes

Better Lock screen Touch ID display thanks to the LockGlyph Upate

I’m personally a great fan of all lock screen tweaks available over on the iOS 8 jailbreak, which was also one of the main reasons why I decided to try out LockGlyph, which advertised itself as a great Cydia tweak, capable of improving the way that Touch ID looks. Howevr, LockGlyph was not very well-received when it was first released. The goal of the app is to animate and provide sound to the Apple Pay authentication. At first it was clunky and show and couldn’t be customised enough. Fortunately, it has now been updated and is hence considerably better. Read More...
