It’s really easy to delete applications on the iPhone. Just put the apps into the jiggle mode by holding them for a few seconds and then hitting the cross button. But what if you wanted to delete a folder. A new Cydia tweak for iPhone called UnFolder has been created by Filippo Bigarella to let you do exactly that. Video demo included after the break.
Recently at a Mobile Connections Conference, Mr. Jay Freeman, famously known as Saurik, the man who gave us Cydia and the world of free apps and iOS customization, spoke about Jailbreaking iPhone, iTouch and iPad and why it’s useful.
Jailbreaking is the art of cracking your iOS device and giving it access to the App Store alternative Cydia and a huge collection of apps, themes, wallpapers and much more. It’s not done by most people, and if you believe it or not, only 8.5% of iOS owners go ahead and actually get their iPhones, iPod Touch and iPad jailbroken. For geeks like us, it is of great importance, because a gadget to us is more than what it is to normal people. The first thing that I did when I received my iPhone 4, well the first thing was unbox it, and then connect it to the PC and jailbroke it.
Jailbreaking iPhone, iPod Touch and the iPad according to some people will stop you from using the App Store for downloads….that is not true. I use the App Store every now and then, I update my apps using the App Store, and so on. Jay Freeman a.k.a Saurik also explains in the video below why Jailbreaking is important and useful according to him. The video is very informative and you can also see how the creator of Cydia has customized his iPhone 4.
You may have incurred from the video about all the cool and useful things that can be done once you jailbreak iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. Saurik recommends the best tool for jailbreaking is RedSnow!
Some people also believe that once you jailbreak iPhone or other iOS devices, it effects the warranty and violates the agreement with Apple. That again is not true, because once you buy an iPhone, it is your decision what you do with it. Also, do read Apple’s agreements carefully, because if you don’t you might just end up in some strange Apple experiment.

I have been asked by a lot of people as to what the LocalSharing feature in Installous 4 does. This tutorial talks about Installous 4’s LocalSharing engine which will allow you to share the downloaded IPA files on your iPhone with any other iOS device over wifi. No need to redownload on your second device or if sharing an app with a friend.
Obviously, both the devices need to have Installous 4 installed. In case you haven’t installed Installous yet or you are running an older version of Installous 4, first get Installous 4 on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad.
Other Interesting Reads for Installous Users:
Now talking about LocalSharing, this new feature will help you save some time and bandwidth when installing the same cracked application on another device. You need a wifi network for this feature to work. It uses Bonjour to find and identify devices on the same network.
By default LocalSharing is disabled in Installous 4. To enable go to Installous Settings and Turn it On.
Now tap on any downloaded IPA and select Send IPA. You will see a list of available devices which can receive the file. Select the device you want to send the file to and Installous 4 will take care of the rest.
The other device should get a notification like the one shown below.
The app will now be transferred in no time to the second device. Enjoy!

Isn’t it too bad that devices running on the Android OS can enjoy voice based commands on the entire operating system? The voice search tool for the Android OS can literally search anything on the web, your phone, call contacts, give commands and complete a lot of other operations. The Apple iOS lacked this feature, although there is a voice command feature for the iPhone and the iPod Touch, these can’t be used for a complete OS search or carrying out other functions such as starting applications and speak to enter text.
The wait is over, thanks to the developer chpwn, the app that can bring Android like voice enabled functions to the iOS has finally arrived. It’s known as the VoiceActivator and can be downloaded from the BigBoss repository via Cydia for $4.99. And yeah, this is an app for the jailbroken iPhone and iPod Touch, so you’ll have to Jailbreak your iPhone or iPod Touch to make use of this app. There’s a video after the break demonstrating how this app works.
