In the official Reddit app for iOS, gray vertical lines of varying heights appear between comments underneath posts. They’re intended to help lead the eyes, making it easier to differentiate between responses, but the gray isn’t exactly easy for everyone to see.
A new free jailbreak tweak called ColorComments by Ben Giannis lets you add a splash of color to those lines, not only for improving the efficiency of how your eyes distinguish between each one, but also making the app look more unique in the process.
If you prefer the Antenna Reddit client over the default app from the service itself, then you’re probably familiar with the fact that it lacks a way to download animated GIF images when viewing them from the app.
A new free jailbreak tweak called AntennaGIFDL fixes that by building in a way to download animated GIF images from the Antenna app straight to your device’s Camera Roll.
Following suit with a similar event that took place last year, the 2016 Jailbreak Awards have just launched and the polls are now open.
This is essentially a jailbreak community-hosted event to recognize some of the best and the worst of the community for the year of 2016. The polls are open to everyone who takes part in the community, including jailbreak users, tweak developers, and even those who make the jailbreaks.
There are a lot of people who get away with using iOS’ text selection just fine, but there are others who hate the way it’s implemented and find using it to be a pain in the hind quarters.
A new free jailbreak tweak release called BetterTextSelection aims to make the text selection feature in iOS a little more precise, especially in the context of selecting large excerpts of text from blocky paragraphs on a web page.
Pangu launched the first iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak this past week, and it took everyone by surprise. The jailbreak currently supports all 64-bit iOS 9.3.3 devices, and while that’s great, people with 32-bit devices are left in the dark.
Pangu has confirmed this weekend with its new official Reddit account that 32-bit support for the iOS 9.3.3 probably isn’t going to see the light of day.
Pangu was recently subjected to trust issues after a thread made it to Reddit claiming that some users had unauthorized charges from Beijing on their PayPal account after jailbreaking, others had their Facebook account show login attempts from various Asian countries, but mostly from China.
Despite all of the confusion, Pangu has made an official statement, and we have the scoop.
Nearly a year and a half following its acquisition of Alien Blue, the popular iOS client for Reddit, the popular social news service today released its long-awaited official client for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.
Reddit: The Official App, as it’s called, is available at no charge in the App Store and if you download it during its launch weekend, they’ll treat you to three free months of Reddit Gold membership.
I’m not what I would consider a typical Reddit user. I don’t belong to any Subreddits, I don’t think I’ve ever posted anything, and I’ve only voted on a handful of articles. I really just use the site’s FrontPage as a source of news, cute puppy pictures and the occasional funny video.
As you can imagine, most iOS Reddit clients—like Alien Blue—are overkill for my needs, so a few months ago I set out to find an app with a specific focus on media and browsing. I believe I found that app in “Beam for reddit,” so I figured I’d take a few moments to share it with you.
Alien Blue is the official and most popular Reddit client on iOS, but it lacks one feature that I’ve always found annoying—the ability to easily copy and paste the text of posts.
A new jailbreak tweak called ABCopyTXT just recently appeared on Cydia, and it allows you to easily copy text in Alien Blue using the stock iOS share sheet. Have a look at our walkthrough to see how it works.
I’ve always wondered why popular Reddit clients such as Alien Blue and Narwhal don’t support push notifications for various alerts. Not being a heavy redditor myself, replies to my comments will often go unnoticed until the next time I open a Reddit client, and that might take a few days, which sometimes proves to be inconvenient. However, Notifications for Reddit is a recently-launched solution.
