VoiceActivator coming soon for your iPhone and iPod touch [Jailbreak]

Jailbreak developer chpwn is at it again and plans on releasing his new tweak VoiceActivator hopefully this week. VoiceActivator will allow you to take full control of your iPhone or iPod touch's voice control feature. It will allow users to launch apps, open URLs, use Activator actions all within the standard voice control feature.

As of now all we can tell you is he plans on releasing it sometime this coming week through Cydia and we are yet to hear anything as far as pricing goes but it should be well worth the money if you are jailbroken and have a lot of apps and many things you do daily that causes you to tap through folders and menus. If you want to follow to the status of this tweak, follow @chpwn on Twitter.

We want to hear from all you jailbreakers on who is interested in this new tweak. Also do you think Apple should have already included this as part of iOS out of the box or do you think they will include it in the next generation of iOS? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below! Check out a video of this awesome new tweak after the break!

New Angry Birds game coming in March

The next version of the hit game Angry Birds will be coming to the App Store in March. The new game will not be a true sequel, but will be a licensed game based on the tie in with 20th Century Fox's upcoming animated film Rio.

Rio is a film about rare birds being kidnapped by other birds and is all about them escaping to freedom. Therefore we assume in this game, you will be up against birds rather than the nasty pigs that steal your eggs.

The film Rio is due to be released on April 15th but the new game will be available sometime in March. No exact date yet, but we will let you know as soon as we hear. While you wait patiently, take a look at the video teaser after the break, then let us know what you think in the comments!

3DBoard bringing 3D home screens to iPhone [Jailbreak]

3DBoard uses the iPhones accelerometer and gyroscope to present a "3D" view of the Springboard/Home Screen icons and it looks pretty nifty. Sure it's pure eye candy and not as functional a tweak as SBSettings or LockInfo, but cool has to count for something, right?

It's coming to Cydia soon and will cost $4. Anyone going to grab it?

Video after the break!

Adobe Flash Packager to support iPad apps, pinch-to-zoom?

Japanese blog Macotakara claims that Adobe is about to update their Flash Packager soon so that developers will be able to cross-compile Flash apps for iPad as well as iPhone. (This following a long battle between Apple and Adobe that ended when Apple relaxed its cross platform compiler restrictions back in September of last year.)

Supposedly Adobe's next update for Packager will include not only support for the iPad but also more gestures such as pinch-to-zoom as well.

iWork vs Documents to Go -- Which one should you use?

When it comes to document editing and creation on the iPad, two solutions really stand out: Apple's iWork Suite (Pages, Numbers, and Keynote) and DataViz's Documents to Go app. Which is better? Well, I wish the decision was that easy.

Both apps (or set of apps in iWork's case -- you can buy each separately) allow you to edit and create documents, spreadsheets and presentations. iWork also has the advantage of using Apple's iWork format and Office format as well and is beautifully designed. Documents to Go does a stellar job of rendering and editing Microsoft's Office format. Let's begin by looking at each app a little more in-depth. I will focus primarily on the differences of how each application handles their word processing since this is the number one reason people would use these apps and, you probably don't want a mini-novel to read. There is an incredible amount to discuss with both iWork and Documents to Go, I cannot conceivably cover it all here. My goal is to give you a detailed enough overview to help you decided which app will work best for you.

DUE 1.3 hits App Store + Promo Code give away!

DUE, the awesome reminder app that makes sure you never miss anything important, has just updated to version 1.3.1 and includes a whole bunch of great new features:

  • Over the air Dropbox sync: View and add new reminders as normal while DUE retrieves your database in the background. It then finds the least intrusive time to merge your data. If you're using a multitasking-capable device*, DUE automatically uploads any changes back to Dropbox in the background on exit.
  • Backups: DUE automatically backs up your last 5 databases on quit. You can email yourself a copy of any backup file, or restore from a backup file from within Due.
  • Undo: Postponed a reminder wrongly? Accidentally marked a reminder as done? With Undo support, it's okay to make mistakes. One tap and your reminder will be back to where and what it was before.

DUE has also very kindly offered to give away five (5) Promo Codes to TiPb readers. To enter simply post a comment below telling us what DUE could help you remember (and yes, the funnier the better!). Make sure you leave a valid email address. We won't publish it but will use it to mail you your Promo Code if you win.

[$2.99 - DUE website - iTunes link]
