Learn why images, videos and animated GIFs from WhatsApp chats with disappearing messages enabled are no longer automatically saved to your iPhone's Photos library, and how to manage this setting going forward.
It’s not very often that we bear witness of jailbreak add-ons made especially for Apple Pay, but that’s exactly what you can expect from an upcoming released dubbed Sydney by iOS developer bank5ia.
You can do all sorts of things with Apple Keynote presentations. From creating slideshows of photos for a family gathering to presentations for business meetings, Keynote offers the flexibility and features to do it all.
So once you create your presentation, you might want to pop it up on your website or share it on social media. With this in mind, you can turn your slideshow into an animated GIF. This lets you plan your presentation automatically.
Whether your slideshow is on your Mac, iPhone, or iPad, we’ll show you how to turn it into an animated GIF in Keynote.
Spotify has what I’ve come to appreciate as one of the nicest music players available for the iOS platform today, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t things I’d do to make it even better. In fact, when I learned about the release of a new jailbreak tweak called SpinThatRecord by iOS developer Menuskha, I was immediately intrigued.
Just as the name implies, SpinThatRecord modifies the Spotify Music app’s native music player such that the album artwork appears as a spinning record rather than a standstill square image. You’ll notice in the screenshot examples above that the album artwork is now shaped like a vinyl record, and below, you’ll find an animated GIF that showcases how the tweak looks as the album rotates:
Your iPhone supports three different types of wallpapers, including still images, Live Photos, and Dynamic Wallpapers. The latter is particularly interesting because it's the closest thing to video wallpapers that Apple has ever provided, but iOS’ native selection of Dynamic Wallpapers out of the box leaves a lot to be desired.
It was only a few weeks ago that we showed you a jailbreak tweak called Dynamic Apples by iOS developer JGeorge, which replaced the stock Dynamic Wallpaper with Apple-esque ones, but if that didn’t do it for you, then perhaps a new free release called Dynamic Rainbow Hearts.
Live Photos is one of iOS’ fun and quirky proprietary features that brings many of your photographs and wallpaper backgrounds to life. Unfortunately, Apple limits Live Photos functionality on many of its older handsets, such as the iPhone 6, 6 Plus, and SE, to name a few.
If you use any of the aforementioned handsets and you’re bummed about having a gimped Live Photos experience, then you might want to turn your attention to a newly-released jailbreak tweak called LivePhotoForNon3DTouch by iOS developer anima.
iOS comes with a native text replacement feature that lets users set shortcuts that will automatically expand to full words or phrases when typed. But wouldn’t it be neat if the same concept applied for images?
I’ve long wondered about this myself, and so I’m excited to share that a newly-released and free jailbreak tweak dubbed ImageCorrect by iOS developer Satvik Borra brings this feature to pwned handsets.
Animated GIFs seem to be one of the most popular things people share these days aside from photos. Whether on social media or in text messages, those short animations are everywhere. You can share something sweet, thoughtful, hilarious, sarcastic, or wacky, and the list goes on.
If you search Google, you’ll find tons of GIFs for the topic you need. But why bother when you can use a keyboard specifically for them? These are the best GIF keyboard apps for iPhone and iPad to bring fun to your messages.
The Status Bar is something that iPhone users see every day when using their handset, so it makes sense that it’s easily one of the most popular things to customize on a jailbroken handset. A classic jailbreak tweak called Zeppelin used to let users customize their carrier icon, but as they say, out with the old and in with the new.
For those onboard, iOS developer PeterDev just recently released a new jailbreak tweak called Xeon (Beta), which aims to be a full-fledged Zeppelin alternative and then some. In addition to working with standard Zeppelin themes right out of the box, Xeon (Beta) also brings a bevy of other proprietary features to the table.
There are GIFs everywhere. We see them, save them, and share them from Facebook, Twitter, and even those we receive in Messages or Mail. So, if you want to have some fun, make something memorable, or just get creative with your photos and videos, why not make a GIF of your own?
These are the best free apps for creating animated GIFs on iPhone.
Despite Apple’s attempts to step up its iOS wallpaper experience in recent years, with dynamic wallpapers, Live Photos, and motion, it still leaves a lot to be desired. Fortunately, a new jailbreak tweak called MotionPicture by iOS developer Dev4i can help with this.
As you may have already inferred from the tweak’s name, MotionPicture lets you have moving wallpapers on your handset's Home screen and Lock screen. Furthermore, MotionPicture works with various file types, giving you the flexibility you deserve for a personalized experience.
If you’re one to appreciate fun and quirky animations on your jailbroken iPhone or iPad, then a new free jailbreak tweak called Ants by iOS developer SparkDev might be of interest to you.
Once installed, Ants causes an army of animated virtual ants to spawn all over the iOS interface. They appear and crawl around whether you’re on your Home screen or inside of an app.
