One of the things that can be really peeving about third-party keyboards in iOS is how you can only jump to the next keyboard instead of actually being able to pick a new keyboard to use immediately after.
It’s been another quiet week for the jailbreak community as the looming atmosphere of no recent jailbreak continues to surround this week’s tweak releases.
Now with iOS 9.3.2 available to the public, any team that has been testing a new jailbreak would have yet another software version to try and break into.
Nevertheless, there were still some good tweak releases this week, and we’ll start by showing you our favorites, followed by the rest of them in this roundup. Read More
It isn’t often that a single company creates an iPhone dock as well as an Apple Watch dock, and designs them in tandem. They often look entirely different, or the company that makes your favorite iPhone dock, doesn’t even make an Apple Watch dock. A company as design-focused as Apple would never let something like that happen, and neither does Native Union. They recently released their new line of docks for iPhone and Apple Watch, and they completely compliment one another. Read More

Ever since I was a kid I’ve been a closet edc/bag nerd. The more zippers and pockets, the better. There’s just always been something oh-so-satisfying to me about discovering new ways to pack and travel with things more efficiently. So naturally I jumped at the chance to try out STM’s Haven laptop bag.
The Haven is a backpack-style bag, equipped to fit most 15-inch laptops, that incorporates a minimal design constructed of great materials. It also offers features like pass-through holes for USB cables that help keep your stuff both organized and accessible while on the move. Read on for my full review. Read More
If you’re looking for a durable aluminum stand for your Apple notebook, then don’t count out iQunix.

Every week, we do a recap on all of the jailbreak tweaks we show you. This Sunday will be no different.

You’re probably familiar with Apple’s Remote app for iOS devices, which allows you to control your iTunes playback on your Mac from your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad so long as you’re on the same network.
On the other hand, when I think of the word “remote,” I think of much more than just controlling music.
It would seem that the makers of the popular Mobile Mouse Remote app for iOS thought the same, and in this piece, we’ll talk about how the app works to make your iOS device a superior remote for your Mac. Read More
PointOut for iPhone, an exciting image annotation app, is celebrating its first birthday with a feature-packed update that surfaced yesterday on the App Store.
As its name hints, this app lets you point out things on your photos and iOS screenshots with pointers such as arrows, dots, circles, lifelike loupes, precision glasses, different canvas layouts, focus areas and more.
These tolls make it super easy to highlight or enlarge specific details on your photos in a manner that’ll make an impact on your audience.
In its latest update, PointOut has gained some new pointers with draggable text labels for making even greater impact, a flat magnifying glass for those who couldn’t stand the skeuomorphic ones, full support for non-standard iOS keyboards and more.
Having been using this app for months, I’ve grown to like it quite a lot. This quick review should give you an idea why I deem PointOut a unique iOS annotation app. Read More
VPNs can afford a lot of benefits to users. They route your data through special servers that can help you access content that is only available in certain regions, bypass firewalls that block content like iDownloadBlog or music streaming services, and protect yourself on public networks. They grant these features, usually in exchange for a monthly fee. The new Opera VPN app brings all of this and more, for free. However, it isn’t without compromises.
Security has always been a top priority for Apple and its ecosystem, especially as of late. Tim Cook has made it clear that maintaining encryption and tight security protocols are here to stay. Users that are equally as concerned about protecting their personal information have had few options in actually monitoring their security however. A new app called System and Security Info from security firm SektionEins aims to help with that. Read More
Ukrainian developer MacPaw, the makers of the versatile and powerful CleanMyMac and CleanMyDrive apps, today pushed a major new update for Gemini as a brand new app. For those unfamiliar with it, Gemini is an intelligent duplicate file finder that can help recover tons of storage space on your Mac wasted to duplicate files.
Aside from identifying identical duplicates, Gemini 2 uses a proprietary algorithm to spot similar files that are not 100 percent identical, but can be considered redundant due to little difference between them.
It scans your iTunes and Photos libraries in search of retakes of the same picture or different formats of the same song, and becomes smarter and more precise in automatic selection of duplicates the more you use it. Read More

About a month ago, Facer, a smartwatch customization platform, landed on the Apple Watch via a free of charge App Store app. Unlike most other apps for customizing watch faces, Facer puts your style and individuality on full display with thousands of custom watch faces and the ability to design your own with an online creator tool.
The app can pull watch face images from a variety of sources, including your Instagram feed, and it even has neat flash card style faces for learning things like languages, constellations, Solar System’s planet names, the elements of the periodic table and so forth. Read More

Audicy is a great new jailbreak tweak that lets anyone running a jailbroken installation of iOS 7.0 to 9.1 import media from various sources to their stock media apps. These include the Music, Podcasts, and Videos apps that come pre-installed on your iOS device.
Your iOS devices have some of the best touch screens out there. As a matter of fact your iPhone screen makes for a great mouse, or trackpad.
The idea of using iOS devices as a trackpad for your computer isn’t new, but Mobile Mouse Remote is a great app that provides this kind of functionality with ease of use in mind. It even packs some useful bonus features.
If you’re interested in this kind of functionality for your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, then this is something you’re going to want to check out. Read More
