By Jeff Benjamin on Jul 5, 2015

Best apps for comic book fans

By Lory Gil on Jan 8, 2015

I’ve been a comic book collector for about 10 years. I have a closet filled with long boxes stuffed to the max with bagged-and-boarded titles that I’ve loved through the years.

Today, we’ve got a list of the best apps for comic book lovers. I did not include any readers by the majors because those are obvious. This list digs a bit deeper into comic fandom with DRM-free readers, manga finders, games, comic creation apps, and more. Read More

For a few months now, iOS users have been given a special treat in the form of third-party keyboards. We’ve been lucky enough to try out all of the best ones as they come out. Different keyboards are great for different reasons. Some of them have unique features that no others have.

The best iOS 8 jailbreak tweaks

By Jeff Benjamin on Dec 30, 2014

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls. It’s the end of 2014, and that can only mean one thing: it’s time to compile our list of the best iOS 8 jailbreak tweaks of 2014.

To be eligible to make this list, the jailbreak tweak or app must have been released in 2014, it can’t be an update or a sequel to another tweak released prior to 2014, it must work on the latest iOS 8 jailbreak, and it must be compatible with the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. That means that tweaks like Auxo 3, which would have otherwise made the list, are not included. I know those are some pretty tough regulations, but by doing it this way, we ensure that we have an original list full of fresh and new jailbreak apps and tweaks that you can use today.

Okay, enough talk. Let’s get into our list of the best jailbreak releases of 2014. Will your favorite tweak make the list? Read More
