BiteSMS, one of the best jailbreak apps available for the iPhone and iPod touch, has recently been pushed out of beta to version 6.0 with full support for iOS 5. The update brings along a number of new features as well -- here's the full change log:
If you are a fan of the original Fruit Ninja game then you are in for a bit of a treat with the newly announced Fruit Ninja Puss in Boots. Fruit Ninja Puss in Boots is a game with a tie in to a movie, this time it is DreamWorks Puss in Boots movie.
Before you go off and assume that this will be the same game with a few cat references, it looks to be much more than that. It is actually a good upgrade to the original game, with more blades and backgrounds, new magic bean powered Desperado Mode and much more.
Jailbroken and wondering how you can automatically respond to SMS messages? Have you ever been in a meeting and have gotten a text from someone and was not able to respond right away? Did they get mad because they thought you were ignoring them? The AutoResponder tweak from Cydia allows you to take control of your SMS messages and we'll show you how after the break!
iOS 4.2 is in the house! We'll save the iPad stuff for Sunday but we're talking all about, AirView, find in Safari, and AirPrint -- except for iPhone 3G. Plus, Steve Jobs, Cupertino Ninja, Unreal UDK out for iOS, free iPhone case programs a changing!
Bloomberg is reporting on the claims of a Japanese tabloid magazine SPA! saying that the Apple CEO, Steve Jobs, was stopped back in July by airport security at the Kansai International Airport in Japan. Jobs was reportedly trying to transport Ninja throwing stars onto his private plane before heading back to the United States from his family vacation.
My latest favorite iPhone game is Fruit Ninja. The premise of Fruit Ninja is simple; slice fruit, don't miss any and don't slice a bomb by mistake. Sound easy? Think again grasshopper! After beginning a game, fruit flies up from the bottom of the screen. You use your finger (or fingers) to slice the fruit. If a fruit falls back off the screen without being sliced, you receive an X. Three X's and it's game over. To make things interesting, bombs are thrown into the mix as well. So, not only are you trying to slice a lot of fruit coming at you and not missing any, you have bombs that shoot up as well. The challenge is, if you slice the bomb, it's instant game-over.
When it comes to difficulty with this game, it is a nice and smooth curve. The issue is that once you get good at it, it would be nice to start at a higher difficulty. However, Fruit Ninja always starts you back at the beginning. Your efforts are not at a loss though, the game has plenty of achievements via Open Feint and unlockables. Different colored swords and backgrounds can be unlocked if you have the dedication and skill of a true ninja.
Fruit Ninja also has two different play modes. First is Classic. This is the primary play mode I have described above. Score points by slicing fruit while avoiding the bombs. Zen mode is fun and fast. There are no bombs, but you have a time limit to slice as many fruits as you can. This is not hard, what is hard to is to slice with combos to rack up more points. Check out the Open Feint leaderboards and you will see what I am talking about.
I can't say enough about this game. It has great art direction, animation and fun. When you lose, it even gives you facts about fruit. This is a near-perfect game, I love it!
The jailbreak community offers an abundance of tools that allow you to make your iPhone fit your personality and mood. If you're anything like me, I can be pretty picky about layouts and exactly how my phone is set up. I want all my most frequently used apps in one place, neat and tidy, and ready to use.
For some iPhone users, that plain black background and all the stock icons get pretty boring. I change my theme on my iPhone a couple times a month, if not more. There are several jailbreak tools that can help turn your iPhone from boring, to brilliant.
There's always one problem with paid and free themes, you get what the theme developer gives you. There may be some theme elements you don't like at all, or ones that are missing that you'd like to add. There are several ways to edit themes and customize them to fit you individually. Today, we'll show you how to do just that.
