Categories Updates – Internal Rewrite of App

Available In: Cydia       Price: Free  

##ICON_NAME## Yesterday, Categories, an application that allows you to organize the applications on your SpringBoard into folders, received a few updates. The update to version 2.27 was the major one which basically includes an internal rewrite of the app making the app perform much quicker. Updates 2.27.1 and 2.27.2 were basically bug fixes. See the complete change log below.

After updating, I definitely notice an improvement in the app’s functionality. It is MUCH quicker and just feels less bulky. So far, I have not had one crash… which is great! Normally, Categories will crash a few times on me. I also love that when adding an application to a folder, the apps are now in correct Alphabetical order! It makes adding applications so much faster and easier!

Overall, a great update… you will want to be sure to update to update this one. You can get Categories via the BigBoss source.

PhotoList Update – Facebook Integration

Available In: App Store       Price: $1.99  

PhotoList I opened iTunes this evening and what did I see? An update to an app that I had done a review on last week. It was the PhotoList app by Raisix Inc. (click here for the review) I was interested to see what they had updated and I was hoping it wasn’t just stability issues as most updates are. But to my surprise they had added a new feature to the app…Facebook integration!! Now that is cool.

The Facebook integration allows you to do two things: Upload and Download photos to and from your personal Facebook account.

To Download
Within PhotoList, create a new folder that you want to download pics from your Facebook account. Tap on your new created folder and tap the folder icon at the bottom right of the screen. Tap “Facebook” on the “Download photo from” title and after it requests authorization, sign into your Facebook account. Once you have done this tap “Done” and start downloading from any of your Facebook photo folders. Once you have selected your photo, name it or keep the default name and give it your 1 to 5 rating (if you want), and tap “Done”. Once you are done, tap the Facebook arrow and then cancel to take you back to the PhotoList app. [Read more…]

New Poll – How many pages do you use for organizing applications on your iPhone or iPod Touch?

AiS Time for a new poll. The last poll was – Do you use your iPhone or iPod Touch while driving (pick the answer that best applies)? Below are the results based on when we added the poll a week ago.

* No Way…that is totally dangerous! (18%, 182 Votes)
* Nope because it is illegal where I live. (10%, 106 Votes)
* Yes, but mostly to make/receive calls. (40%, 421 Votes)
* Yep, how else am I going to keep up on my text messages! (15%, 159 Votes)
* Totally…driving is the best time to get on the web! (6%, 64 Votes)
* Yes, when else would I use all my applications?? (10%, 108 Votes)
Total Voters: 1,040

I’m not sure I should admit this or not but, I totally use my iPhone on long trips!! Mostly to get on the web or check Twitter. Doug uses his iPhone basically anytime he is awake so, good thing it is not illegal to use a cell phone while driving where we live. I also just noticed that there were a few spelling errors in the last poll….sorry about that!! 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. Below is the new poll.

Categories 2.11

Available In: Cydia       Price: Free  

CategoriesCategories helps organize your icons on your iPhone or iPod Touch into categories. This is yet another huge reason to jailbreak your iPhone. Instead of scrolling through pages of apps you can have one icon for games and then all your games show under one menu. You can pick the icon that represents your category or you can SSH some of your own icons in if you want. Just add them to /private/var/stash/Applications/ Today, a package came out in Cydia that adds the older icons from categories for firmware 1.1.4. I’m sure there will be more packages in the future. You can also go to our website, and get some to manually SSH in, that’s what I did. Gives you even more customizing options. [Read more…]
