iCleanerPro: Maximizing Your Phone's Memory


One question everybody with an iPhone asks is: "How can I get more memory?"

Unless you've paid the extra for the larger GB handset, or are a religious user of Cloud based storage systems, you've almost certainly run into problems finding enough space for your latest app or download.

This isn't just a Cydia-related problem either, though Cydia users most certainly suffer from space limits more than most. 16GBs just aren't enough for every app, video, song or picture that you want to keep on your phone.

One great way to get on top of your memory problem is to use iCleaner Pro. This recently updated app for jailbroken phones helps rid your device of useless garbage that may be stored on it. No, we don't mean PSY's song, Gangnam Style, we mean unnecessary files, cookies and temp files.

iCleanerPro - Maximizing your phone's memory


The Advantages

The advantage of having the app is that it saves more than your device's memory space; it saves your time, too. Going through your iPhone or iPad to find unused files is such an inconvenience and waste of an hour or too. Yet, to get the most out of your memory, it's something that needs to be done.

Thankfully, you can just automate the process. The iCleaner Pro app, which has recently undergone some changes to make it more integration friendly, makes the process effortless, and is like adding extra memory to your beloved gadget.

Other Benefits

The iCleaner Pro app is compatible with all of the latest IOS upgrades. That includes all 8.0x editions of the software.

Its intuitive nature means it's not going to touch any files you use regularly. Your precious family photos are safe, as is your music collection. The high scores you've accumulated on your gaming apps are protected, as well as your videos.

iCleaner Pro only removes stuff you don't need, and stuff you won't miss. Think accidental screenshots. Think iPhone pictures you don't care about. Think fonts, languages, unread messages and cracked files. The app will also remove out of date firmware on your device, which can give you up to 20 GBs worth of extra space.

How Does it Work with Cydia? 

The iCleaner Pro app can be configured to whichever setting you prefer. You can toggle on/off items as you please. Most people have the settings on to clean Cydia, Safari and Google Chrome (or their regular browser). However, the choice is yours.

Usability

If you're the forgetful type, or just like sticking to your routines, you can set the app to a schedule. This means it will run without you manually prompting it to. You'll get to enjoy a nice clean device without having to remember to clean it up.

Tips 

When first downloading iCleaner Pro, it will be set to clean log and temp files only. This means, if you want a deeper clean, you will have to change from the default setting. This is easily done, but most don't realize the limited nature of the initial app.

Conclusion 


Don't settle for a less than optimum jailbroken phone. Make use of one of the many effective cleaners currently around. We like iCleanerPro because of the reasons above, and because of its ever growing popularity. If you use iCleanerPro, of think you have a better device cleaner we should know about, mention it in our comments section below.

Important Features in iOS 8

Best Features In iOS 8:

Apple revealed what to expect from iOS 8 at WWDC and once Beta testing opens for developers; we will have reviews coming in for the new iOS features. Apple already previewed the features earlier last week. And as any iDevice would love to know; there prevails curiosity for these new features. Here is a list of most important features which will come into existence with new iOS 8 update.

Important Features in iOS 8

1) Battery Usage Indicator:

The annoying bit of iPhone/iPad is now taken care of. Compared to android Apple has better battery life; still it is good to know who is making dent on the battery. iOS 8 will come with a setting which will give you info on what app is eating what proportion of the battery. And this can be really handy if you need to save the battery. You can precisely pinpoint that unwanted game on the train and save that much percentage of the battery.
As far as developers are concerned; they can also use this tool to amend the necessary changes in the apps. So overall positive outcome will be:
a) You will know what is eating what % of battery.
b) Developers will work on to make apps and features which eat the least battery.

2) Predicting Keyboard:

In iOS 8; you will have taste of predictive typing in the keyboard. ( To be frank, I never liked the idea of predictive typing. Being an Indian I mostly type in Hinglish than English. But I know it is a great tool for native English speakers who would save a lot in typing.) It will give you several word suggestion based upon the characters you typed in. For example if you typed CA; it might suggest you CAB, CAT, CAR, CARE.

Apart from this; Apple has announced that they will allow developers to offer their own keyboards. Like Swype for Android; which lets you swipe on keys and not tap. This company has already shown interest in making a keyboard for iOS devices.

3) Continuity:

This is what I call taking Cloud to new heights. Apple has announced that they will increase the connectivity among iDevices to a level that you may start work in iPhone and finish it off in iMac. As these devices recognise each other (due to same Apple id) you just need to press one button to keep continuity. 

4) Camera Features in iOS 8: 

Smartphone companies know that 50% plus people still decide the fate of a smartphone by checking its camera. And this is why we have seen multi megapixel cameras within a span of decade and it all started with blurry VGAs.
Apple keeps simple interface for its cameras. But for iOS 8 camera they have decided to add two more features and they are: 3 Second Timer and Time-Lapse-Capture for videos. Apart from these there might be focus and interface features too; in new iOS 8.

5) iCloud Photo Storage:

Apple has added storage upgrade feature in iCloud library (cost is 0.99$ a month for 20 GB). For iOS 7; iCloud will save last 1000 photos automatically for free. For iOS 8, 5GB storage will be free and images and videos will be instantly uploaded to iCloud. The new storage upgrade will be possible as high as 1TB. 

6) Family Sharing:

Apple has finally taken a step on merging the Apple ids with feature called Family Sharing. With this feature designated family members (up to 6) can share all their iTunes content. Best feature of Family Sharing is; parents get notified when their child is trying to buy something from App Store. And they have option of either allow or deny this purchase (this definitely puts smile on people whose children buy anything using their credit card).

7) Interactive Notifications:

This is one more feature which will save a lot of time for iPhone users. You need not to open specific app for example messages to reply to a notification of message. Notifications are interactive in iOS 8 and you can reply it from notifications area itself. And you can do so without unlocking the device. Well, people might critic it on the privacy and safety; so Apple has put an option to enable/disable this feature.

8) Messages:

There are some cool features announced in messages too. This include the audio and video sending facility. With the option of self-deleting the audio and video messages after specific time. You will also be able to share your location through messages and might want to try Do-Not-Disturb feature for long group conversations.

9) Widgets:

Widgets will allow apps to share information (data) and functions with other apps.


 10) Lockscreen App suggestions:

iOS 8 will be packed with lockscreen app suggestion feature. There will be an App Store like icon on your lock screen and when you swipe it up; it will give you some apps suggestions based on your location etc. For eg, you might get McDonald's app suggestion; if you are walking across fast food chain's tore with App Suggestor on.


 11) TouchID for Applications:

TouchID started with iPhone 5S gets new level in iOS 8. With this new software upgrade developers might allow users to delete all passwords stored for an app with the TouchID.


 12) iCloud Drive:

This will be cloud saving system which will take many frustations away. This will allow you to save file formats which were not compatible on iPhones yet viz. PDF. It will be just like Google Drive or DropBox.

What do you say: These are what we feel to be the best features of iOS 8. Let un know your views on it. You might rate some other features to have upper hand than those listed here. Drop it in comments so all can be benefited.

WallCycler - Cydia Tweak For Wallpaper

Change Wallpaper Every Time You Unlock Your iPhone

Are you kind of person who wants to see new things all the time. Then this is the tweak for you. This is my all time favourite Cydia tweak for wallpaper. The tweak is called as WallCycler and it does a simple yet good adjustement to your iPhone/iPad wallpaper. If this tweak is enabled; every time you unlock your device you get a different wallpeper. And you can also manually change it by using activator gesture.

This tweak is available on Ryan's beta repo. And you can find it here: http://rpetri.ch/repo/


How it works?


wallcycler - cydia tweak for wallpaper

This tweak does not have a preference panel. You can go to Settings>Wallpaper & Brightness>Choose Wallpaper and select the album of your choice. Once you do this; a pop-up box will appear asking you if you want to cycle the images from this album.  And next time you unlock your device the wallpaper will be cycled to next image from the album. If you want manual control over wallpapers; you can assign activator gesture to a cycle-wallpaper changer; which should force the background and prompt it to change command.

What do you say?

Try WallCycler and let us know whether this Cydia tweak for wallpaper is worth a try or not. I certainly liked it being simple, easy to use and changing the wallpaper every time after unlocking. Big kudos to the fresh look every time you unlock your device.

FlipCam - Cydia Tweak To Quickly Change Front/Back Camera

FlipCam - Tweak To Change Cameras By Tap

For all people it might not be the app which does wonders.  But for someone who needs to change his front and rear camera too often; FlipCam is the app to download. This app just does one simple thing which is changing front and rear camera. Of course apple has given a switch over button in the right top corner of user interface to do the same thing. But with this tweak you can tap anywhere on your viewfinder to change the camera view.
FlipCam - Free Cydia Tweak

Some might appreciate this for saving time. But this cydia tweak has one real downside which may affect your photo taking experience. And this downside is non-functionality of focus-lock. As iPhone and iPads lock the focus when you tap the viewfinder; this tweak may disable this feature. Because you are tapping for changing the camera from front/rear; the focus lock thing might not work at all.

FlipCam is a free tweak which can be downloaded from BigBoss Repo. FlipCam works for 32bit as well as 64 bit devices. It is an open source project and you can view its source code here.

As we said earlier for someone not using the camera too often this might not be a charming app. But people who use cameras too often might certainly want to try it out. And the focus locking disturbance thing might not make this app so charming; but as it is free there is no harm in trying it out.


Have your say:

What are your views on this tweak? You can always interact and raise questions using the comment section.
