Even though it comes from the BigBoss Repo at $0.99 this wonderful jailbreak tweak will let you know by a colored bar highlighting the text of the open app. The color for this bar can be changed from the settings menu. So when you see in your Home screen an icon with this bar you will know that app is loaded into ram so to kill that app you just swipe up on its icon. By default you will get a warning message confirming the killing of that application, this message contains two buttons Cancel and Kill the ram usage of the particular app that you want to kill. You can also deactivate this feature from settings. Beside this you will also get the same gesture of kill apps in App Switcher, so by swiping app you kill the active app from your device. The settings menu is simple here you will find Confirmation alert toggle for switching on or off the confirmation message of closing an app, Choose color bar where you can set the color for the bar that will appear on the active application, you can also set the opacity for that bar, and last function Swipe to kill apps where this toggle is for the swiping gesture of killing apps from App Swithcer.

Soon after the emulator was last upgraded in May last year, ZodTTD posted on Twitter that there would be an update which would spruce up the entire UI, featuring the ROM manager and the rickety controls. Since then, there has actually been no new launch of n64iOS. That might be altering soon: According to a recent discussion along with Will Strafach, ZodTTD is once again handling n64iOS.

This suggests we won’t see n64ios launched into App Store, as we have actually lately seen with MAME4iOS Reloaded through Gridlee.

While I discovered CallTap to work as marketed, it appears like it’s attempting to load a void that wasn’t there. However if you want to attempt the tweak out for your own self, you can easily locate it in the BigBoss repo, in Cydia, for free.

Do you remember all of those complaints we heard a couple of months ago concerning iOS 5 battery life? Things have been (mainly) quiet on that front for a while. Apple’s iOS 5.0.1 update assisted some individuals’ handsets to last longer, however not everybody was pleased. Fast forward to last weekend break, when the iPhone 4S ultimately got its initial jailbreak.

News spread of a jailbreak tweak that was assuring a dramatic improvement in battery life for all who installed it. All that was inquired of you was a one-time repayment of $ 4.99 for “experimental access” to the insanelyi Cydia repo. If you assume this sounds sketchy, you aren’t the only one. Two relied on iOS programmers, Dustin Howett as well as Sam Bingner, took issues in to their very own hands to determine if the app had any sort of credibility. Their verdict? It’s absolutely nothing however useless code made to sell VIP members. They stated that all the app does is to replace some code in one record (if this were actually a repair, anybody with iFile or SSH gain access to could fix it without paying a penny). After doing some testing, the developers said that they could not locate any type of feasible consequence that altering this code might have on your battery life. Yet countless customers in the insanelyi forum were uploading messages pointing out that they were seeing enhanced electric battery life after putting in the tweak. Is it feasible that Howett and also Bingner were wrong? You never ever understand, since electric battery life is a tricky specification to attach down, yet it’s feasible the forum individuals could possibly have been experiencing a placebo effect. One more opportunity is that the online forum was being trolled with artificial articles to promote the application. We have not checked the application, so it’s basically the word of 2 programmers vs. the claims of an offer as well as some individuals in a third-party Cydia repo. Use your own discretion, yet we would not suggest you to leap into this one with open arms.
