You can now save Facebook posts for later

Recognizing a growing popularity of dedicated services that save articles for later reading, the social networking giant Facebook today quietly updated its backend to enhance its mobile and desktop apps with this functionality.

Aptly named ‘save it for later’, it does just that: you can now save other people’s posts for later reading through the new Saved option under the lefthand pane revealed when you tap the sidebar menu button…(…)

Disable double-height status bars with MonoBar

Filed under Apple iPhone

In the world of jailbreak tweaks, there are some that are really worth getting excited about. These would be tweaks like Dashboard X and Springtomize, that add significant functionality to iOS.

This, however, is not one of those tweaks. MonoBar is just a simple hack that disables the double-height status bar that appears when you’re recording a voice note, or in a phone call…(…)

Create custom actions for contacts with CallTap

The contact list in iOS pales in comparison to its counterpart on other mobile platforms. There’s no embedded photos, no integration with social networks profiles, and no quick way to send emails or texts.

Luckily, if you’re jailbroken, you can resolve most of these problems by installing tweaks. Copic or ChatPic can add photos to your contacts, and CallTap will give you a way to quickly message them…(…)

How to enable the Nitro Javascript engine for Google Chrome

Filed under Apple iPhone

“Chrome will never be as good as Safari,” many lamented upon Chrome’s iOS debut, “It doesn’t have access to Apple’s private Nitro Javascript Engine.” If your device isn’t jailbroken, that still rings true, but if it is, then not so much anymore.

That’s because Nitrous — a new jailbreak tweak available on Cydia — unlocks the Nitro Javascript engine for alternative browsers like Google Chrome. Does it make a difference? Yes. Check inside and see for yourself.(…)

FLASHr: a flash notifications case for your iPhone

July 31, 2012 by  
Filed under Apple iPhone

It seems like a gross oversight, on Apple’s part, that there’s no external indicator for notifications on the iPhone. This means that unless you happen to see a push notification come through, you have to unlock your handset to see if you have any missed calls or text messages.

Apple tried to remedy this issue with a new feature in iOS 5 called LED Flash for Alerts. It uses the iPhone’s camera flash to alert users that they have new notifications, but for a number of reasons, this solution is far from perfect. Enter the new FLASHr case by Phaze5…(…)

Poll: do you like the two-tone iPhone 5 design?

July 30, 2012 by  
Filed under Apple iPhone

A surprising amount of tidbits that have come out of the rumor-mill point to a two-tone design for a sixth-generation iPhone, be it home buttons, front and back plates, leaked schematics and engineering samples or even fan artwork.

The case for a two-tone iPhone has become much stronger earlier today when a repair shop put together all those parts floating around Asia, seemingly depicting what a fully-assembled iPhone 5 could look like. The thing ticks all the right boxes, like a relocated headphone jack on the bottom, a smaller 19-pin dock connector and a taller four-inch display (both confirmed by credible media outlets).

No matter from which angle you look at it, the assembly does look legit. It’s plausible design-wise with its high-quality milled aluminum feel, thinner appearance and a slightly beveled shiny edge. As always, some people will love the new look and others will loathe it simply because it doesn’t look new enough. Which side of the fence you’re on?

Several new iPhone and iPad prototype designs revealed

Filed under Apple iPhone

The highly-anticpiated patent trial between Apple and Samsung is set to kick off tomorrow in a US District court in northern California. And even if you’re not interested in all of the patent-talk, there are still several reasons to look forward to the litigation.

The court-ordered revelation of early iPhone and iPad prototype designs, for example, is particularly exciting. Apple has kept information regarding the development of its two most popular products extremely close to the vest over the past ten years. And this trial will force the company to finally reveal at least some of those secrets…(…)
