Το ScreenRecorder είναι απλό λίγο app που συλλαμβάνει το βίντεο της οθόνης σας. Just load the app and hit record, then load the app you want to record. ScreenRecorder runs in the background. Once you’re done recording, you have to go back into the ScreenRecorder app to stop the recording. The developer warns of not recording over about 45 seconds due to memory issues and then crashing. You can view the videos from the app but not in your camera roll. This means you have to SSH off the videos to then upload them to a online service. From my tests, it’s not a very high frame rate but better than nothing. There is also no audio.
I’ve been looking for a replacement to an app I used to use called iDimLight. It basically mirrored the feature of the Mac laptops that dims the screen to save battery when you’re not using them. I tend to never use the autolock feature and just manually lock my iPhone. Now I can have my screen dim after being on for 45 seconds or whatever I set it to by a new app that works with 3.0 to 3.1.2 called ScreenDimmer.
The app installs into your Settings app and not an icon on our SpringBoard. From Settings you can:
I love this feature and it’s one of those hacks I say is worth jailbreaking for.
Element is a lock screen mod that began as a concept and has turned into the real thing. Since it began as a concept back in September, there hasn’t been much to tell, but it seems that that one and only Jay Freeman (better known as saurik) is helping to make this thing happen. So, it’s time to get the information rolling. According to a recent tweet (see below), a beta of the lock screen mod will hit Cydia next week.

I don’t know about you guys but, I would love to have the perfect lock screen mod! I’m currently using LockInfo and like it. I can’t wait to check out Element… it looks like it is going to be pretty sweet.
Clock Plugin for LockInfo adds the current Date, Time and Calendar into the LockInfo lock screen mod.
Once installed, the option is added into the stock Settings application under the LockInfo option. In the LockInfo option you have the ability to turn on/off the Clock plugin itself and the Collapse by Default option. Once you have turned on the Clock plugin the current day of the week, month, date and time will display on your lock screen. If you tap on the Clock bar on the lock screen, it will display the current month calendar.
This isn’t about music this time (iBand), it’s an accessory that protects your iPhone. We’ll see what we can do about getting one for testing. Of course if you drop it directly on the screen, it’s still gonna break. Brooke’s wishing she had it when she dropped her iPhone
You can even buy it online at Apple.com.
Lockscreen Dim Delay is an application that allows you to choose the amount of time before your lock screen turns off. Once Lockscreen Dim Delay is installed, it is added into your stock Settings application. Here you can choose a dim delay anywhere from 1 second to 60 seconds. If you set the dim delay for 1 second, your iPhone or iPod touch’s lockscreen will only stay on for one second before turning off. If you set the dim delay for 60 seconds, your iPhone or iPod touch’s lockscreen will only stay on for sixty seconds before turning off… etc. Read more
60 Second Lock Screen is a mod that keeps your lockscreen on for 60 seconds before it automatically turns off. Normally, the lockscreen will stay on for 5 seconds before turning off. This mod is great for those of you who have lockscreen mods that display email or weather or text messages… etc. It just gives you more time to view your lock screen. Read more
Vibration Battery is a lock screen battery mod…the battery that is displayed with your device is plugged into a computer. The mod is a cool 3D style “battery.” It contains 17 frames that change as the amount of battery life changes. You can check out the Download page on ModMyi HERE. You can get Vibration Battery via the modmyi source in Cydia. The mod is enabled/disabled in WinterBoard Read more
Advanced Lock is a lock screen mod. It looks like a log in screen in which you have to “scan” your finger to enter. You actually have to swipe your finger for it to work…you cannot just hold your finger on the spot. When you swipe your finger, a blue finger print will show up. This mod can be activated/deactivate via WinterBoard and is available for both the iPhone and iPod Touch. You can get Advanced Lock through the iSpazio source. Read more
Lock Calendar has been updated to version 0.3. This version fixes a few bugs (see screenshots below) but, also adds some cool new features. You now have the ability to add Date Separators, Header Transparencies and Entry Transparencies. If you go into the app settings (which is accessible through the stock Settings app) you are able to turn on/off the Date Separators (which puts a line between the dates) and adjust both the Header and Entry Transparencies to your choosing. This makes the app much more customizable! A very nice update. Oh, the update also adds a Spanish translation! See screenshots below. Read more
Last week, I wrote about a theme called Blue-Island. The theme itself did not work unless you had a French iPhone or iPod Touch however, you were able to use the lock screen from the theme if you listed things correctly in WinterBoard. Well, it seems the developer has made it easy on us and released just the lock screen part of the theme! It is called BlueIslandLock in Cydia and is available through the same source as the Blue-Island theme, the Apple-News.fr source. Read more
Lock Calendar is a simple application that allows you to display your upcoming calendar events on your lock screen. I know there are a few other applications that also allow for this functionality on firmware 2.x (IntelliScreen, RemindYou) however, both are paid applications. Lock Calendar is free. When you install Lock Calendar, your events will automatically start to display on your lock screen…you do not turn the app on via WinterBoard. It will display your next ten upcoming events. The events are categorized by date and also display the time and title of the event. The app has a decent design and showed up nicely on all the wallpapers that I tested. Read more
It seems that Apple has put out a patent on a new display technology. The patent shows a sort of two-layer backlight system that would allow for an “always-on” display for the iPhone while at the same time using very little battery power. This would allow for a sort of status notification without having to turn the iPhone on essentially giving you the ability to see if you have a missed call, text message, voicemail or a new email. This would be very similar to some of the lock screen status notification applications available on jailbroke iPhones but, without even having to turn your iPhone on! AppleInsider has a very nice article about the patent that include a few images. Below is a quote from the article and one of the patent images.
LockDockBar is an application that allows you to launch your Phone, Mail, SMS and Calendar apps from your lock screen. When you install LockDockBar, it will automatically add the icons to your lock screen (it does not add an icon for the app to your SpringBoard). You can then launch and use any of the four application right from your lock screen. Once you are finished using any of the apps, you will be brought back to your lock screen. If you select the Home button at any point while using the apps, you will also be brought back to your lock screen. It also displays a badge on the icons (on the lock screen) indicating if you have any missed calls, texts and/or any new email.
