Poll – Do You Still Jailbreak?

We’re updating our website and wanted to know, do you still jailbreak your devices? It seems that jailbreaking has been behind lately and most people update for the new features from Apple before a jailbreak can be released. We are motivated to help people with their iPhones and other iDevices but want to know what the needs are. Please help us by answering a few questions in our polls. Thanks! Comments are welcome below! [Read more…]

Apple Watch App Store Up and Running

For a while now the Apple Watch app has had a non functioning tab labeled “Featured”. Now that Apple Watches have been delivered, the App Store styled page is up and running. There are a few categories of apps and you can now see thumbnails of screenshots just like you can with the full iPhone/iPad apps. Just to be clear, these are not apps you just install on your Apple Watch, these are apps you install on your iPhone and then have the option of accessing from your watch. There are definetly apps I will not have on my Apple Watch, such as games, but it’s great to have a section highlighting all the apps that have Apple Watch companions. [Read more…]

Apple Watch — Guided Tour: Apple Pay

Apple has release more “Guided Tour” videos on their YouTube channel and website. Apple is really trying to fight the haters by showing exactly why you should want this device. Personally I do not have a single bank/card that works with Apple Pay so this wouldn’t affect my decision. I’m sure it will be great once all banks and stores offer it. Do you have the new Apple Watch? If so, have you used it yet to pay with Apple Pay? I wonder how many people actually have banks that work with Apple Pay. Let’s find out! [Read more…]

Siri vs. Cortana – Happy Anniversary (Commercial)

I’ve recently been seeing this commercial from Microsoft about their Siri competitor, Cortana. Although I’m pretty sure I’ll never buy a phone from Microsoft (And I know no one that has one), this feature is really nice. Now I’m not sure how it works in real world scenarios but this seems impressive. Like Google Now, it adapts to your schedule, location, traffic and other information to make your life easier. Apple is behind on this one. There are location based tasks and Siri is really good at what it does but it doesn’t really seem to be getting much better lately. It needs to take a real leap to get ahead. What do you think? Also, according to the comments, the real Cortana voice doesn’t sound like that. [Read more…]

Poll – Have you upgraded to iOS 4.2.1?

Today’s poll is out of sheer curiosity. Neither Doug nor I have upgraded to iOS 4.2.1. We are waiting for an untethered jailbreak… there are just too many things we miss when we are not jailbroke. Anyway, I was curious to see if you have taken the plunge… jailbreak or not.

Have you upgraded to iOS 4.2.1?

New Poll – Have you paid for a theme?

I have always been curious about this… do people pay for themes? I personally have never paid for a theme in Cydia but honestly, that doesn’t mean that I wouldn’t if I found one I really liked. I think Doug has bought a theme or two. If you have purchased a theme… let us know in the comments which one and if you thought it was worth the $.

Side Note: Not gonna lie… Smoog is still my favorite theme… I’m rockin’ it right now!

Have you paid for a theme?

Skype Updated to 2.1, Runs in Background

SkypeIt’s taken a little over 4 years and 4 iPhone but it is finally here! Skype on your iPhone just like a phone call. You can sign in and then close the app and when a call comes in, it rings! You can also close the app while you’re on a call and stay connected! These are features we’ve all been waiting for! Now I know Skype has been out for the iPhone before, but this is the way it always should have worked.

Now I don’t use Skype that much so this is kinda kewl. I only really use it to talk to a friend in Brazil every couple months. I sure some of you use it on a daily basis. So, let’s find out! [Read more…]

Court Documents Prove 5 Year Contract Between Apple & AT&T

AT&TEngadget has finally found proof that the contract between Apple and AT&T for the iPhone was 5 years. That would mean no Verizon iPhone this year. But there are always renegotiations and all sorts of other ways Apple could have ended the agreement. Apple did develop the iPad to run on AT&T and not Verizon so this may also be a hint. I’m guessing that Apple will wait until LTE technology is released and all carriers use it so they can sell only one phone.

Here’s what I’d like to know. If you have an iPhone right now, would you switch to Verizon if they get the iPhone? If you’re reading this and don’t have an iPhone and are with Verizon already, would you buy an iPhone once it comes to Verizon? Answer below in the polls and let us know more by telling us why in the comments. [Read more…]

AppleWith today’s announcement of the new iPad, we’re wondering how many will buy the new iPad from Apple? Let us know in the comments why or why not and what model you’re planning on getting. I am planning on getting one. Depending on exactly how the 3G data service works, I will get the 64GB with 3G but not activate it for now. Gonna have to save up first…

Will you buy the new iPad (tablet) from Apple?

  • Yes (36%, 1,093 Votes)
  • No (64%, 1,929 Votes)

Apple Tablet Coverage

AppleIn my previous article I talk about the new tablet from Apple and the possibility of it running App Store apps. Hypothetically speaking, if they do release a tablet and it does run apps from the App Store (regardless of what OS or variation of OS it’s running) would you want us to write reviews and cover news stories about it? Right now I am considering it but I want to know what the readers think. Let me know by voting below. Also let me know in the comments what you think.

Would you like us to cover the upcoming Apple Tablet?

  • Yes. (79%, 833 Votes)
  • No. (8%, 83 Votes)
  • Don't care. (13%, 141 Votes)

New Poll – Do you think the launch of the DROID will negatively affect iPhone sales?

##ICON_NAME## It’s time for a new poll. The last poll was – What app do you use to get jailbroke applications onto your iPhone and/or iPod touch? Below are the results.

* Cydia (77.0%, 2,372 Votes)
* Icy (2.0%, 68 Votes)
* Rock Your iPhone RockApp (7.0%, 200 Votes)
* Installer (4.0%, 112 Votes)
* I’m not jailbroke. (10.0%, 309 Votes)
Total Voters: 3,061

Well, it seems that the majority of jailbroke iPhone and iPod touch users prefer Cydia which really doesn’t surprise me too much. What does surprise me is that 7% of the voters use Rock Your iPhone (RockApp). I didn’t expect it to be that many.

You can still vote on this Poll in our Poll Archive page. You can also vote/view all the past polls on the Poll Archive page as well.

The next poll was inspired by tomorrow’s launch of the Motorola DROID.

Do you think the launch of the DROID will negatively affect iPhone sales?

  • Yes (16%, 111 Votes)
  • No (55%, 392 Votes)
  • Either way, competition is a good thing! (29%, 209 Votes)

Total Voters: 712

New Poll – What app do you use to get jailbroke applications onto your iPhone and/or iPod touch?

AiS Time for a new poll. The last poll was – Do you use the passcode lock on your iPhone and/or iPod touch? Below are the results.

* Yes (46.0%, 485 Votes)
* No (54.0%, 559 Votes)
Total Voters: 1,044

I think it is interesting that this is almost a 50/50 vote. I still haven’t decided if I’m going to passcode lock my iPhone or not… at the moment it does not have a passcode lock on it. You can still vote on this Poll in our Poll Archive page. You can also vote/view all the past polls on the Poll Archive page as well.

The next poll I decided to do after some frustration about the fact that lately quite a few jailbroke applications automatically install the Rock Your iPhone RockApp when they are installed. I personally use Cydia and do not want to install RockApp. Then I got to thinking… maybe some people do use RockApp. Thus the poll.

What app do you use to get jailbroke applications onto your iPhone and/or iPod touch?
