CallBar and Apptivator [Jailbreak]

CallBar and Apptivator are just two examples of the Jailbreak community being in full flurry this summer with what has been the most productive and innovative season of Jailbreak tweaks to date. At a time when people question the current value of jailbreaking with iOS 5 on the horizon, the jailbreak community have spoken up and demonstrated that they continue to advance and innovate where Apple stops short.

With a vast amount of new Cydia tweaks, thanks majorly in part to @rpetrich’s TweakWeek challenge, I will be talking about only two recent tweaks that demonstrate to any non-believer that Jailbroken iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches are the way to go!

Apply selective coloring to your photos with Color Range for iPhone and iPad

SSA Mobile has released their new photo editing app, Color Range.

Simple and easy to use, this truly wonderful app enables you to convert any image into grayscale while keeping the selected color (or colors) bright and vivid. Color Range will make you feel like an artist photographer, except that instead of messing with a brush you’ll just need to tap the chosen color, select the color range and the smart app will automatically do the rest!

  • Unique Color Range effect with 2 work modes: color picker & color slider
  • Real time preview for all effects
  • Load pictures in any resolution or use the built-in camera
  • Zooming in and out for more convenient color choice
  • Gray / Color brush for custom edit of certain image areas when needed
  • Unlimited number of undo and redo options
  • HUE effect that allows you to change originally highlighted color (or colors)
  • Saturation and brightness controls
  • Easy and super user friendly interface and help
  • Save to Photo roll or share via eMail, Facebook & Twitter

Personally, I'm not the biggest fan of selective coloring, but if I was, this app looks like a great choice. Just tapping on the color is much easier than painting it in by hand.

Color Range is a universal app for iPhone and iPad and has an introductory price of $0.99.

Evernote Peek updated

Evernote has updated their iPad app, Evernote Peek, with support for audio clues.

Evernote Peek is the first app designed for the iPad 2 Smart Cover! Studying with an iPad has never been more natural. Simply peek under the cover to prepare for a quiz, practice a language or strengthen your memory.

Here's how it works:

  • Choose a notebook to study
  • Close the Smart Cover
  • Peek under the cover to see a clue, lift the cover more to see the answer
  • Repeat

The update includes:

  • New: Support for audio clues
  • New: Study notebooks that others have shared with you in Evernote
  • 3 new audio featured notebooks: bird calls, Spanish language, French language

I wish this app was available when I was a student! Some topics are studied best with flashcards, and if could have used my iPad and Smart Cover as flash cards, studying would've been more exciting - and I just may not have dropped out of Biology.

Evernote Peek is available on the iPad for free. Screenshots after the break.

iNitsua Z Twilight 3volution theme [Jailbreak]

iNitsua is back and this time it's with iNitsua Z Twilight 3volution, the sequel to K. Nitsua and Zausser's original Twilight HD, this time with the fit, finish and UI crafting of Barsoverbeats, and over 20 gorgeous Retina Display wallpapers by K. Nitsua.

For those keeping track, it's the 7th iNitsua theme since 2009, and the features just keep getting better:

  • Highly animated HTML5 lockscreen
  • Lockscreen seemlessly integrates camera roll photo, or CPBitmapConv tweak, or custom SSH image with no need for HTML editing
  • Unprecedented 7 iconsets immediately available to choose from
  • Highly detailed "Prestige" iconset, each icon took 30 min - 1 hr to make
  • 7 icon color mods available at launch

Theming -- the ability to customize the look and feel of your iPhone, your way -- remains something unique to Jailbreak and with themes like iNitsua Z Twilight 3volution, it remains one of the most compelling reasons to Jailbreak.
