, an application that allows the ability to connect and stream to your device from your Slingbox, is now available for the iPad. The iPad version of the application is $29.99 (which is the same as the iPhone version) and is available for download in the App Store. Check out the full app description and screenshots below.|
Infinifolders, one of my absolute “must-have” hacks that allows the ability to add unlimited apps into a folder, has been updated to version 1.3-1. There isn’t an official change log but I’m guessing it has to do with compatibility for iOS 4.2.1 or maybe it adds the much awaited iPad support (which I can’t test because Doug has taken the iPad hostage!)! If you haven’t checked out this app yet… it’s worth a look and worth the $1.99 price tag. You can get Infinifolders via the BigBoss source.
As I mentioned yesterday, the current redsn0w jailbreak for iOS 4.2.1 is currently still a tethered jailbreak for some devices. The Dev-Team has updated their recent post on jailbreaking iOS 4.2.1 with a definition of what a tethered jailbreak means. A great idea! Since most people are a little confused about what exactly a tethered jailbreak is. Below is the definition via the Dev-Team.
SBSettings, an application that allows you to quickly toggle settings on your device, has been updated to version 3.2.1. The update contains three bug fixes including a fix for the 4.2.1 firmware. Check out the full change log below. You can get SBSettings via the BigBoss source.
Lockinfo White Text is a mod that changes the font color and style for LockInfo (a feature-packed lock screen mod). Normally, on LockInfo, the title font is white and the rest of the text is gray. This mod changes all the text to white and italicizes the title font to help differentiate between the title and the rest of the text. This mod would come in handy if you have a lock screen background that makes it difficult to read the gray text. Overall the mod worked exactly how I expected it to. I was able to activate and deactivate it without a problem.
Apple has released a new ad for the iPhone 4. The commercial “Longer” boasts the iPhone 4′s lithium polymer battery which allows you to, “work longer, play longer, laugh longer, listen longer, shoot, edit, share, update, download, read, write and even FaceTime longer.”

No Badges is a simple hack that removes the badges from the icons on your device’s homescreen. The hack is super simple… once you install it via Cydia and respring your springboard… you will no longer have badges. There are no setting for the app and it will not put an icon on your springboard. It just does the mod automatically when the app is installed. To get your badges back, just go into Cydia and remove the app. No Badges worked perfectly when I tested both installing and removing it. A nice little hack if it is what you are looking for. Personally, I would love to see the app have a few options such as the ability to turn off badges for specific applications (like the Mail app!) and leave badges on other apps. You can get No Badges via the BigBoss source.
I found this really nice fall wallpaper online with a nice variety of colored leaves. Looks great on both the iPhone and iPad. I had to rotate it for the iPhone. I’ve included both versions for download below. Just tap the one you want below to open the full resolution. Then hold your finger on the image until a pop up comes up allowing you to save the image. You can then set your wallpaper from either the Settings app or from the Photos app.
Last week, in Episode 24 of i101 and in this article, we talked about Table Connect, where developers connected an iPhone to a multi-touch surface which then allowed them to control and display the iPhone on the multi-touch surface. They have now released a second demo video that shows them playing Labryinth 2 on the giant 58″ multi-touch screen! Check out the demo video below.
DirectControl is a mod that allows you to go directly to the iPod controls in the multitasking dock. Normally when you double-tap the home button to bring up the multitasking dock, it brings you to the first application in the dock and you have to scroll to the left to get to the iPod controls. Well, with this mod, you are brought directly to the iPod controls and then can scroll right to see the apps. I also like that you can choose to go directly to the iPod controls all the time or only when music is playing… a nice little feature. Overall, a simple but useful mod if you use your iPod a lot. You can get DirectControl via the BigBoss source. Check out the Application Description below for more info about the app.
Today, the Facebook iPhone application received an update. The update includes the addition of Groups and Deals as well as improvements to the Places feature (see full change log below). The new Groups feature has replaced the Requests option on the main page. I also noticed that the News Feed now displays three options at the top of the page; Photo, Status and Check In… allowing you to quickly do one of those three things without having to leave your News Feed.
In Episode 24 of i101… we talked about Table Connect. Table Connect is basically an application that allows you to connect your iPhone to a Multi-Touch surface which then allows you to control both the iPhone and the Multi-Touch surface. As we mentioned in i101, they had a countdown on their website until the release of a demo video. Well, the demo video has been released… a 58″ Multi-Touch iPhone table… pretty cool. Check out the demo video below.
Reset Safari for SBSettings is an SBSetting toggle that allows you to quickly clear Safari’s cache, history and remove all tabs. Once the app is installed, you will need to go into SBSettings and then the More option and turn the toggle on. Once it has been set as one of your toggles, it’s pretty simple to use… just tap the ResetSafari toggle and it clears everything. It does not actually toggle on or off… you just tap it and it instantly deletes everything. If you use the toggle while Safari is open, it will close the app in-order to reset it.
When I tested the app… it worked just as I expected. All my Safari history and tabs had been removed and my cache cleared. I didn’t catch any glitches with the app… let me know in the comments if you did. You can get Reset Safari for SBSettings via the BigBoss source.
