biteSMS 1.19

Available In: Installer       Price: Free  

biteSMS The update to version 1.19 of bitSMS makes a few updates to the application. It adds Danish and Spanish to the list of compatible languages. It is also said to improve the performance when rendering screens and scrolling. You are also able to switch between biteSMS and the stock SMS application. However, I could not get this feature to work! Let me know in the comments if it worked for you. You can get biteSMS through the Ste Packaging source.

Installer 4.0 Running on Firmware 2.0 (Updated)

Installer Since we are on the topic of jailbreaking firmware 2.0, I thought I would also mention that we do not have to worry about Installer not being able to run in firmware 2.0 (which is good because if Installer didn’t run on firmware 2.0 there would be no point in jailbreaking)!! RiP Dev has been giving us quite a bit of information in the last few days on what the new Installer version 4.0 will entail. And, because none of the previous applications available through the Installer will run on firmware 2.0, they have made quite a few changes to the Installer application. The following information is directly from the RiP Dev blog and it is quite the read. So, you will want to sit back and take a deep breathe before you start this one.

This post has been updated to include Part 1, 2 and 3 from the RiP Dev blog.

Part #1
I am fairly sure you are all excited with the newly opened App Store (just like I am). I’ve already purchased a bunch of applications (and of course, downloaded a few for free), and I must say big “thank you” to both Apple for rolling out such a system and to the developers who put a tremendous effort into creating all these applications.

Installer Apps in App Store

AppStore After spending some time in the App Store and getting a feel for it, I realized that there are not a huge amount of applications avilable in the App Store…a lot of them are even in multiple categories. What I also noticed is that there were quite a few Installer applications in the App Store (or apps very similar). Below is a list of the applications that I saw in the App Store that are also available in the Installer. I also included how much the app costs via the App Store. Let me know if you notice any others that I may have missed.

Alarm (a self-defense/emergency alarm with a freefall detector) – Free
Band (collection of virtual instruments) – $9.99
Crosswords (puts crossword puzzles on your iPhone) – $9.99
