TaiG jailbreak and website now available in English, team launches official Twitter account

By Sébastien Page on Dec 3, 2014

TaiG today launched an English version of its jailbreak tool and official website, making it easier for users to follow through the steps to download and use the utility to jailbreak their iOS devices running iOS 8 to iOS 8.1.1. In an effort to make communication with non-Chinese speakers better, the team has also launched a Twitter account, available in English as well.

The English version of the site can be found at TaiG.com/en. The download link, jailbreak tool UI, tutorial, and changelog pages have all been translated in English. Although the translation of the website and the jailbreak tool aren’t perfect, this move will definitely make it less intimidating for users who haven’t used TaiG yet to take the plunge.

If you weren’t able to watch the live stream of the event yesterday, Apple has made the whole video available for download from iTunes. Clocking at 2 hours and 3 minutes, the HD video goes over the announcement of the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, Apple Pay, and Apple Watch.

AppETA: an awesome way to check the progress of app downloads

By Jeff Benjamin on Feb 14, 2014

iOS 7 makes it difficult to gauge where you are with App Store downloads. With very large downloads, it’s a frustrating experience to watch the progress circle slowly inch around at a snail’s pace.

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could get a more informational view of your App Store download progress? What about bringing back the classing download status indicators? With AppETA, a new jailbreak tweak available on Cydia’s BigBoss repo, you can do all of that and more. Read More


Free OS X Mavericks update now available in the Mac App Store

By Cody Lee on Oct 22, 2013

Earlier today, Apple announced that this year’s OS X update would be free for the first time ever to current Mac users. That’s right, as long as you have a compatible Mac computer, you’re eligible to get OS X Mavericks for free.

The update is a big one, bringing about several UI changes, new applications like Maps and iBooks, and a number of new features like Finder tabs and tags and quick reply for messages. And it’s now available for download… Read More


Download the new iOS 7 wallpapers now

By Cody Lee on Sep 11, 2013

In addition to unveiling the new iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c yesterday, Apple also seeded the Golden Master of iOS 7. It should be the final beta we see of the big software update, before it gets released to the public on September 18.

As we’ve already pointed out, iOS 7 GM doesn’t include much in the way of changes. It does, however, feature several new wallpapers, which we went hands-on with yesterday. And since everyone seemed to like them so much, we thought we’d do something about it by posting all the new iOS 7 wallpapers for download… Read More

How to extract OS X download history via Terminal

By Jeff Benjamin on Jan 14, 2013

Have you ever wanted to go back and check your Mac’s entire download history in one fell swoop? With this handy Terminal command your download history is only a few steps away.

One of our readers tipped this to me via Twitter. It’s essentially an SQL command that you run via Terminal. It goes into the database and extracts the full contents of your download history logs as found in the LSQuarantineEvent. It doesn’t matter where, or how you downloaded these files, in most cases the download should be logged.

One exception that I’ve noted is with Mac App Store apps. Items downloaded from the Mac App Store are not logged here. Take a look at our video inside for a glance into how it works… Read More


‘Download To Newsstand’ makes it easier to identify pending downloads

By Jeff Benjamin on Dec 21, 2012

It’s always great to open up the App Store and find a dozen new app updates waiting for download, but downloading so many items at once presents a small issue. If you’re like me and you have a ton of apps scattered around four or five pages in multiple folders, then it can be tedious to locate each app to check its download progress.

Download To Newsstand is a recently released jailbreak tweak that attempts to address this. It moves all pending downloads into the Newsstand folder for an easy to see centralized location for all pending downloads. Read More


Transloader: download files remotely to your Mac via iOS

By Jeff Benjamin on Dec 7, 2012

Transloader is a new Mac app available on the Mac App Store, which allows you to remotely download files to your Mac via an iOS app. The two apps speak to each other via iCloud, with the iOS app acting as a means to forward a download URL for the listening client running on the Mac.

If you’re like me and always on the go, Transloader is a great way to save time by downloading files while away from the home or office. Take a look at our video walkthrough inside for a glance into how it works. Read More

By Sébastien Page on Oct 24, 2012

In case you were not able to watch the iPad mini keynote live as it was happening yesterday, Apple made the video available for streaming on its website shortly after. But for those of you who don’t want to be tied to a wifi network in order to watch the keynote, you’ll be happy to learn that the whole iPad mini event is now available as a podcast download from iTunes… Read More

There are several positions included with DownloadMove; they include: Middle, Top, Bottom, Up, and Down. Sure, it’s not the most impressive tweak from a functionality standpoint, but DownloadMove is a decent choice for those looking for this sort of change. Read More


Chrome Download Manager lets you download files with Google Chrome on iOS

By Jeff Benjamin on Jul 28, 2012

We all knew something better than Chrome Download Enabler was inevitable, and now it’s finally here. Chrome Download Manager is a jailbreak tweak that was released just a few minutes ago to allow downloads via the Google Chrome browser.

Considering it has a name that’s similar to the legendary Safari Download Manager, I’d say it has some pretty big shoes to fill. Does Chrome Download Manager live up to its expectations? Read More


Password requirement for free apps in iOS 6 seems to be erratic

By Cody Lee on Jul 24, 2012

Yesterday, we mentioned that several users were reporting that the latest version of iOS 6 beta was not requiring them to put in their passwords when downloading free apps.

The news spread quickly, but the assumption was premature. It appears that Apple has quickly reversed this behavior via a backend update, and the password requirement is back in place… Read More

iOS power-users rejoice, the popular jailbreak utility Safari Download Manager is finally compatible with iOS 5. The tweak, developed by Dustin Howett, gives you a large amount of control over your mobile downloads.

SDM has long-since been a favorite in the jailbreak community, but has recently been all-but-forgotten due to its lack of iOS 5 support. But now it’s back, and better than ever. Here’s our rundown of SDM part deux… Read More


Apple upgrades OTA download limit to 50MB

By Cody Lee on Mar 7, 2012

Although the App Store and all of its wonderful applications are accessible over a 3G network, there’s a bit of a caveat. Apple prevents you from downloading larger applications when using anything but a Wi-Fi connection.

That limitation used to be a measly 25MB, meaning anything over that would prompt a pop up that would tell you to connect to a Wi-Fi network to download. But it looks like today, Apple has bumped that limit up to 50MB… Read More

By Jeff Benjamin on Feb 16, 2012

Want to get your hands on the new iMessage beta — the iChat replacement that’s coming with OS X Mountain Lion this summer? If so, you can do so now, as Apple has posted a public beta download for all to enjoy.

iMessage was one of the prominent features of iOS 5, and it allows users to chat across multiple devices using the same interface that’s used for SMS messages.

The beauty about iMessage is that it’s basically just an IM client, which means you incur no SMS fees. Now with this latest update, you can start and/or finish conversations on your desktop or laptop… Read More
