iPad 2 untethered jailbreak

Finally some good news for iPhone 4S and iPad 2 users! Remember how there’s no untethered jailbreak out yet for the iPhone 4S and the iPad 2, all because they run on an A5 processor. Well, looks like pod2g, the same developer who released the untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1, has sent out a tweet saying that an iPhone 4S and iPad 2 untethered jailbreak may be released next week.

iPad 2 untethered jailbreak

Users who’ve been waiting to jailbreak their all new iPhone 4S and year old iPad 2 on iOS 5 can finally take a breather. iPad 2 last received the jailbreak love with the release of JailbreakMe 3.0, but that was only on iOS 4.3.3. Now, Apple has stopped signing all those iOS versions, including iOS 4.3.5 so people have been really looking forward to such news. iPhone 4S users on the other hand haven’t had access to any kind of jailbreak, because the A5 processor had issues with the latest untethered jailbreak that was released for iOS 5.0.1.

There have been so many Cydia tweaks released for iOS 5 and 5.0.1 that all the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 users are going to be really happy. Also, people working on the Siri to iPhone 4 port will get better things from a jailbroken iPhone 4S.

He has also just confirmed that users who aren’t running iOS 5.0.1 on their iPad 2 and iPhone 4S should upgrade right away. Looks like he just gave us the Go signal indirectly. This means that the iPhone dev team may already be working on a Redsn0w upgrade to support the untethered jailbreak.

Pod2g has gained a lot of respect in the jailbreak community now, as he has been helping the community in figuring out the untether. Now that he has given his word, it’s best that we keep our fingers crossed and hope that the jailbreak is released next week.

record iphone screen

If you remember well, we had done a complete review of this amazing Cydia app in question. Display Recorder is a Cydia application for jailbroken iOS devices that can record iPhone screen. This app is currently the only perfect solution to record the screen on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad. All others that are available are no more supported with the new iOS versions or don’t work at all.

record iphone screen

Ryan Petrich, the developer of this app just released an update that makes this app compatible with the latest iOS 5 and iOS 5.0.1. Display Recorder v1.2.5 can perform many functions such as record iPhone screen, upload video to YouTube, record in landscape or portrait and more. You can control the recording with your custom shortcuts, such as the use of the volume up key to start recording and the home button to stop. The update version also has some new features such as:

● Increased maximum and default frame rate
● Improved timing accuracy
● Full support for recording in h.264 on iPhone 4 and iPad
● Fix file permissions on installation (to work around long standing PkgBackup bug)
● Support orientation and grayscale for h.264 encoding

If you’ve already purchased Display Recorder, then you can just head over to Cydia and upgrade to the latest version. In case you haven’t and are looking for an app for recording iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad screen, this is the best bet. You can purchase Display Recorder from the Cydia store for $4.99 and believe us when we say it’s worth the money.

To record iPhone screen means that you can review an app better, showing all the features and functionality with ease. However, you will need to jailbreak your iOS device in order to install this as this is only available for jailbroken iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. Non-jailbroken devices will have to wait for such an awesome app.

DoubleTwist Airsync first began as an iTunes alternative for everyone, but now has transformed in to an Android app that currently brings Apple’s AirPlay extension to your favorite Android devices. Previously, when DoubleTwist was launched it did not have this new feature that enables AirPlay features to be used on your Android phone, but only had the ability to sync your iTunes playlist, videos, photos to your device. Recenlty, we also told you about Shairport4w, the AirPlay for Windows.

DoubleTwist Airsync for Android

Now though, with the updated DoubleTwist AirSync, you can also use your Android device to stream songs, videos to Macs, Apple TV’s and AirPlay supported devices. You can also use the updated version of DoubleTwist to stream music on to Windows Media Player 12, sync just one song or video, sync everything, checked items all with the tap of a button. The app interface is very simple and easy to understand.

AirSync contains two inbuilt features known as ‘Twist to’ and AirTwist that help DoubleTwist in performing some of the above mentioned tasks. Streaming music to an Apple TV, Mac, AirPlay enabled device or Windows PC requires ‘Twist to’ and streaming to an X-Box 360 or PlayStation 3 requires AirTwist. Those are the main features of the new and updated DoubleTwist AirSync.

Not only Open Source Applications cut the ties that bind you to a specific manufacturer, like Windows, they often compete with or exceed the features packed into commercial apps. Best of all, they are free. Here are seven apps anyone can and should use.

Open Source Applications

1. Firefox

When it comes to Internet browsers, one size doesn’t fit all, and Firefox understands that. Consider the following benefits of using Firefox:

  • Gain access to over 180,000 customized themes for your browser interface.
  • Customize your home page with the information you want, whether it’s sports, travel, research, or social information.
  • Take advantage of built-in security, such as anti-virus integration.

2. OpenOffice

OpenOffice packs all the power of Microsoft Office Suite, but it’s free. With OpenOffice, you actually get more features — it comes with a PDF creator and better tools for artists, such as Draw. One of the main benefits is that you don’t have to retype your documents. The program allows you to open your Word files and re-save them in OpenOffice format.

3. ClamWin

Anyone who spends time online has the potential of transferring a malicious virus or program onto a computer. Viruses can wipe out the registry, rendering the computer nothing more than an expensive paperweight. Or, they can snag your personal information and transfer your credit card or bank account information to cyber-thieves.The open source solution is ClamWin, a free anti-virus program. It offers the same features as Norton and already protects over 600,000 computers.

4. PDFCreator

If you just can’t bring yourself to make the switch from Microsoft Office to OpenOffice, at least save some money by using PDFCreator instead of Adobe’s expensive commercial product. PDFCreator installs on your computer like a printer. To create the PDF, you hit the “Print” option on the document and select PDFCreator as the printer. Instead of printing the document, a new screen will open with the PDF of the document. It’s that simple.

5. 7Zip

Most free and open source software (FOSS) programs use a welcome wizard to help you install the program onto your computer, but some use zipped files. To unzip the information, you need a zip utility, like 7Zip. Not only is 7Zip an open source program, it also offers you the ability to take advantage of every other FOSS that uses a zipped delivery.

6. FileZilla

As more people and businesses host websites, they have realized the need for a file transfer protocol (FTP) program. An FTP program is what transfers the web pages you have created to your server.

  • FileZilla is free.
  • It has a user-friendly interface.
  • The FTP makes uploading and downloading files easy to do.

7. TrueCrypt

Whether you want to protect your family photos, your financial information, or the trade secrets that make your business the sure-win over your competition, you can use an encryption program to increase your security. With TrueCrypt, you get the ability to encrypt USB flash drives, hard drives, or files.

These seven Open Source Applications offer you the tools you need to manage any job, whether you run a home or a corporation. Why are you paying for something you could get free?

SpeedUpTV, from mix1009, is likely to be the video player and multimedia file manager on every iPhone very soon. This full-featured video player does everything iOS users wish the native app did and so very much more.

SpeedUpTV gives users complete control over their multimedia experience on iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.  Its video player features are its strongest draw, but the developers of this application went above and beyond to offer users many more value-added features.  The app allows users to watch videos at a variety of speeds, from .05x to 2.0X original speed.  In addition, it functions as a viewer for multiple file types, supporting most image files, and has a built-in folder management system which includes security features like password protection.

SpeedUpTV

 

SpeedUpTV App review:

The controls are simple, intuitive, and elegantly designed for a great user experience.  The video player controls are similar to those of the native app, giving users a feeling of immediate familiarity despite the many added features and increased functionality.

SpeedUpTV completely replaces the need to use the native app, and makes organizing and viewing other file types a breeze.  One of the multitude of awesome add-ons is the ability to transfer files using the USB cord.  I would like to see this app support some sort of wireless sync, though I would use the USB transfer more—it would just be the icing on the cake for this already fantastic application.  After having the application and using it for a while, I found that the number of features included in the video player alone were even more practical than I’d first imagined.  Scene browsing and slo-mo were perfect for educational videos; the fast forward modes were great for speeding through parts of recorded lectures I wanted to quickly review.  It’s an excellent app for students, and the entertainment functionality should be obvious for anyone who uses their iOS device for watching vids for fun.

 

 

The graphics are perfect for a utility like this—non-intrusive and serving the function of the app while providing an aesthetically appealing format.  Playback is excellent, and there’s an added bonus built in with the mult-speed option—the tone of the audio doesn’t get distorted at faster and slower speeds.  This may not seem like much, but when you don’t have to listen to the dull roar of slo-mo audio or the Chipmunks-like squeak of sped up voices, you realize what a great addition this really is.

SpeedUpTV is a new app and if it does well (and it will, offering all this for only $2.99) it’s only going to get better.  It requires iOS 4.0 or later, so if you’re rocking the right device, check out SpeedUpTV app.

Android marketplace is no doubt booming but you will be surprised to see that you won’t be able to find quality Android Apps reviewing websites if compared with iOS ones. This lack of Android app reviewing portals is mainly because of the fact that most of the apps on Android marketplace are free, meaning that users can try out for themselves instead of reading the reviews. But if you happen to stumble upon a feature-rich Android app with a certain price tag then you will prefer to read some reviews before spending your dough. So today I am highlighting 3 pretty useful online resources for reviews of Android Apps:

Useful Android App Review Sites

Android AppStorm

Reviews Android.AppStorm

Part of AppStorm network, Android AppStorm is a very useful blog that give users with some quality contents that include stuff like general information about Android and How To’s.

You can access the android App reviews by browsing through categories, but the volume is limited in terms of amount of apps. The thing that I liked about it is that the reviews of all these apps are detailed having loads of photo illustrating in detail the working. The website is having user friendly interface and it also rounds-up best apps from categories.

Android Tapp

Android Tapp. Android App Reviews  Android Apps  News  App Recommendations   Interviews

If you enter a query of Android Apps review in Google search then the most likely result you will see is Android Tapp. Site also has news and reviews alongwith blog posts that are strongly related to Android. As many as 2-3 reviews are uploaded daily offering quite a deep insight of the app. Apart from that some of the reviews also have video footings that show how the apps work. Android Tapp also offers browsing through the categories.

Life of Android

Android app reviews   Life of Android

This page is all about Android’s blogs and app reviews with a slight touch of news related to Android. The front page of the website contains big names from Android marketplace and it also provides a best-of apps list. The rating system is quite good, the review of each app is displayed in a miniature format alongwith a list of pros and cons. Life of Android provide users with the screenshots and on the average 1 review is uploaded daily.

All the Android App Review Sites I have mentioned are pretty good with some potential to them, if you are searching for some cool Android apps and want to read their reviews then do try out these Reviewing web platforms.
