This is a simple little hack but just another one of the many reasons I still jailbreak my iPhone and iPad. The low battery alerts are super annoying. The worst is when I’m at the end of my work day and my iPhone is low on power and I’m trying to voice text my wife that I’m heading home and while I’m using the voice to text feature the low battery alert pops up and stops my dictation. AHHHH!!! Annoying!!!! I know that I have low battery because I can see the percentage in the top right of my screen at all times. I don’t need an alert at 20% and again at 10%. Ok, rant over. So, just search Cydia for NoLowPowerAlert and install. That’s it! Alerts gone. This hack is free. [Read More...]
So one annoying thing about the iPhone is the popup alerts telling you that your iPhone is low on power. It always seems to interrupt me at the worst moments and so I shut the alerts off using NoLowPowerAlert in Cydia. When writing the article about NoLowPowerAlert I was doing some research and I stumbled upon PowerBanners. This seems like a great way to be notified without stopping my video I’m watching or other task I’m trying to complete. This uses the banner notification method already built into iOS. It looks great and it’s available for free in Cydia. [Read More...]
One of the most classic hacks is the ability to fit five icons on the dock of your iPhone. We’ve been writing about it since 2008! With each iOS firmware update different developers have released versions of Five Icon Dock and now we have one for iOS 7. Just install and then drag your fifth icon down to the dock. This app is free but you will need to add this source to Cydia to find this hack: Fr0st’s Beta Repository – http://gmoran.me/repo or http://repo.gmoran.me [Read More...]
For reasons we may never know, Apple likes to remove some of our favorite features from it’s iOS firmware when they release new versions. One of the most complained about features that has been removed recently is the ability to create a tweet quickly from Control Center. One of the biggest pieces of advice I try to give app developers when reviewing their apps is to never remove a feature. So, this is why we jailbreak! Compose is a very simple hack to add back this feature and give you even more options. Compose adds two buttons to the bottom of your Control Center that allows you to post from a multitude of services. They include Messages, Mail, Facebook Message or Post, Tweet and many more I will list below. Just pick which two services you’d like in the stock Settings app. This hack is just $0.99 in Cydia.

This application works great to capture your iPhone or iPad screen along with the iPhone’s microphone. Everything done on the screen is captured at an adjustable frame rate with the option for showing your finger taps. This app is really great for two reasons: it works really well and it has lots of features. Cost is $4.99. We’ll be using it more to demo apps for our reviews! [Read More...]
Ok, so this is going to be a very humbling article but I just gotta know from the iPhone community, What is so great about WhatsApp? I’m guessing it has to do with the fact I live in the US and most of my friends have iPhones so we use iMessage. I also use Facebook chat for some group messaging. So, when I open up WhatsApp, there are only about 20 of my friends that even show up out of my 1,200 total iPhone contacts. It feels a lot like Google+: If no one is on it, I’m not going to use it. And, if another app already has the feature, I’m not going to use it. I have lots of other apps like that, for example: Sceene, Skype, Voxer, Skype, HeyTell, Kik & Viber.
With most of the Flappy Bird drama behind us, many developers are attempting to become the next Flappy Bird. If you read the reviews of Splashy Fish, it may be the best alternative, possibly even better! At the time of writing this article, Splashy Fish is currently the top free app in the App Store. I only made it to about a 6 on the original Flappy Bird so I thought I’d see if this game is still as difficult or if it was easier. [Read More...]
Lots of people wonder if they should share an account in the App Store with people in their family. I highly recommend it and in this video I explain how it works and why you should. If you have anymore questions that I didn’t cover in the video just leave a comment below. [Read More...]
I took an entire week off of work recently for my 10 year anniversary and one of my son’s birthdays. During the beginning of the vacation I was somehow reminded that I needed to set an auto vacation response on my Gmail account. I remembered seeing it once in the settings of the Gmail app on the iPhone so I thought I’d check it out and see how well it works. [Read More...]
AccuWeather recently updated their iPhone app and I have to say that I do not like it. It had a nice clean design with iPhone style graphics. It functioned. I finally had it figured out since the last update changed so much. Now the new app is ugly, clunky and unorganized. You’ll see there are a lot of grab handles that require you to swipe to get to more data which takes more steps to get to the same info as before. Here’s a before and after of some of the screens and lots of unhappy tweets. What do you think of the new update? Do you have another weather app that you’d recommend to others wanting to switch?
