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.
There is so much stuff on reddit that it’s sometimes hard to find new subreddits worth your interest. This is where Subdit comes in! The app allows you to browse a continuous stream of random subreddits, offering a good way to discover and maybe subscribe to subreddits you might not have found out about otherwise.
SnooScreens is a jailbreak tweak that allows you to change your iPhone’s wallpaper based on images appearing on a subreddit of your choice. Once the tweak is installed, all you need to do is configure a subreddit, adjust some of the tweak’s options, and assign an Activator gesture.
Upon invoking the Activator gesture that you assign, SnooScreens will cause the Home screen and/or Lock screen wallpaper to reflect the top image post on a subreddit or an image at random from the front page. Have a look at our video walkthrough after the break for a look into how this tweak works.
Alien Blue is one of the most popular Reddit client apps for iOS and was recently acquired by Reddit. Although the app has most of the features that a user needs, it’s still a long way from being a perfect app. This is why a new jailbreak tweak known as AlienBlue++ comes in to fill the gap.
Developed by UnlimApps, AlienBlue++ adds four new features to the popular Alien Blue app to improve your experience browsing Reddit. The tweak comes with a built-in photo editing feature that allows you to edit photos and give them a new touch before posting them on Reddit. For instance, you’ll have the ability to add emoticons and texts, choose from a variety of effects and filters, crop the image, draw on it and much more.
Reddit is a virtual gold mine of information on countless topics, all organized into subreddits and multireddits, with options to get a customized feed of only what you want to see. /r/jailbreak is a great place to find tweak concepts and help with jailbreaking issues, and there is an infinite amount of other topics of interest on Reddit.
Of course, no social network is complete without an iPhone app, and there are quite a few third party iOS apps for Reddit – so many that it’s hard to find a clear winner in every category. Naturally, hardcore Reddit users each have their own favorite app like Alien Blue, but occasionally a newer app, such as Reddme, will come out and gain its own fan base. The hard part is deciding which one to use daily. Hence, an article on the best Reddit apps for iOS.
