Sound Equalizer For Any And All Music Apps On Your iPhone [Jailbreak]

equalizereverywhere
The same equalizer settings that make pop music sound good are never going to work for classic music but for some reason the equalizer on your iPhone is not only hard to access it also can't be accessed from the Music app itself. Instead, you have to go to the Settings app and select what kind of equalizer you want to use. Now, if you aren't too much of a music enthusiast this might not bother you but most people like to get the best out of their music library. EqualizerEverywhere is a Cydia tweak available in the BigBoss and Insanelyi repository that makes the equalizer accessible from any screen. Additionally, this equalizer works for every single music app on your device and not just the default Music app. Read More

Quickly Reply To Skype Messages From A Popup [Jailbreak]

skype-qr
Skype is one of those must-have apps that everyone with a smartphone has installed. As great as the app is, it's a bit on the slow side. That is understandable since the app isn't just for sending text messages but for making video and voice calls as well. That doesn't mean people aren't going to use it to send a quick message and when you receive an IM on Skype, it is somewhat of a wait before the app launches and you can actually reply to it. Plus, you have to leave the app you're currently using. QuickReplyer For Skype is a Cydia tweak worth $2.99 in the BigBoss repository that adds a quick reply option for Skype. The option appears on the lock screen, in Notification Centre, and when you're using an app. As a pre-requisite you must have Couria installed on your device. Read More

It’s seemingly pivotal, from time to time, to discuss the essential process of protecting your sensitive data.

Kinomatic - Intro 2
Video editing apps are not exactly a genre in immense demand. Not to say it isn't popular, but it attracts a niche. Professionals are probably using high end tools such as Final Cut Pro X or Adobe Premiere Pro CC, while the enthusiast sector probably use something like Cinelab, iMovie, Movie Maker, etc. However, for enthusiasts on the go, their options are either free apps with very limited capability or expensive apps that get the job done. Now, with the release and immense success of Kinomatic for iOS, an app worth $3.99 in the app store, we have a tool that can record, edit, render and upload your videos directly from your iOS device. The app is currently half-off so buying now is a bargain. Read More

WeTime name

That Movie With: Find Movies By Searching For Any Two Actors In It [iOS]

That Movie With and
A long time ago when our phones couldn't even tell time, a lot of people used to watch TV. TV channels aired shows, soaps, cartoons, and movies. Watching movies has since changed with many people using services like Hulu and Netflix to get their entertainment fix. People today don't know the agony of catching a movie in the middle or at the end and having no way to find out what it was called. A vague Google search and maybe IMDb can now solve those problems but what if the only thing you remember about a movie you once watched are the two most, or relatively most famous actors in it? That Movie With is a free iOS app that lets you search movies by any two actors in them. You can search for an actor and the app will then list all movies that they worked in together. Read More

Set Up A Shortcut To Enter Your Email Address [iOS]

iOS shortcut
An email ID is what unlocks almost every web service worth using. Facebook, Google, and Twitter sign ins are an option that is slowly growing but email is still dominant. Entering your email on your desktop is not problem since you're most likely to do it from your browser which remembers email IDs. That isn't true for an iPhone though. There are no built-in shortcuts for entering your email quickly and easily but here are two ways to do that. One is using the built in text expander which anyone can use and the other is by using a Cydia tweak called Tap TheAt which can only be used if your device is jailbroken, Read More

Rescue Yourself In The Multi-platformer Beyond Gravity [Paid]

Beyond Gravity - Jumping
You may have noticed that in the past month, mobile gaming went through a bit of a slump with a handful of big name titles such as the much awaited Hitman Go for android and the multi-platform Angry Birds Epic, but not many others, coming out. The mobile gaming landscape has been humdrum, at best. This could have been because of Steam's summer sale, diverting all gamers to PCs, or it could just have been coincidence, we cannot be sure either way. What we can be sure of, is that the new releases are a sign that the mobile gaming market is picking up once more. Beyond Gravity has been out on Android since the last week of  June 2014 and has enjoyed multi-platform launches. Even though it was slated for a late 2013 release, but after a few unexpected delays, it is scheduled to be out for iOS on July 10th 2014. Here is our review. Read More

Topia World Builder: Play God As You Populate The Earth With Animals [Paid]

Topia - Created Land
With all the mainstream attention coming to mobile gaming and all the souped up hardware that goes into these things, it is high time a non-traditional game came along to set new precedents. There is immense power in modern mobiles which goes underutilized to reach a wider audience. Developers who cater exclusively to high end devices have to narrow their demographic from potentially billions to a handful of millions, that is not a risk developers are generally willing to take. However, sometimes, these risks are necessary to the medium progress. Games like Asphalt, The Room and Walking Dead are good examples of games that push the performance part of this platform, but they are not as unique as Topia World Builder in its approach. Here is our review. Read More

Denny’s Atari Remix Resurrects Famous Titles; Asteroids, Centipede, Breakout

Hashteroids-Copy.jpg
It’s hard to describe just how exciting retro gameplay was in its time. Modern video games may sport the most realistic graphics but many of them fail to capture the same charm that Atari did back in the 80s. Denny’s, the popular pancake restaurant chain across the US, aims to bring back that charm by resurrecting three Atari titles through its Denny's Atari Remix offering for Android and iOS. Available for free at Google Play and iTunes App Store, the remix is basically a homage to Atari’s 8-bit era, and aimed to promote Denny’s new “Greatest Hits Remixed” dishes lineup. Lets take a look at each title of the package. Read More

Kalky: Gesture Based Calculator App That Saves Results [Paid]

Kalky calculation
iOS developers develop apps for playing music, saving and syncing photos, editing photos, capturing photos, games, and more. Very few developers will create apps that are alternatives for stock apps like Notes, Calculator, or Reminders. It makes sense because the apps get the job done and really, what else is there left to add? Meet Kalky; it's an iOS app worth $0.99 and requires iOS 7.1.1 (or above) that tells you exactly how the calculator app can be much better. It is gesture based and saves multiple results. Gestures allow the user to clear all calculations, save a calculation, use the result from a calculation in the next one, and delete the previous number entered. Read More

Appear.in_.png
When you’re working in a large team, effective communication is the key to getting anything done. You need every member of the team to know what’s really happening therefore, a central place to chat becomes the obvious solution.

Appear.in, however, is a different take on video chat that makes itself stand out from the crowd by letting you create free chat rooms and share them with up to 8 people, allowing all of them to video conference without creating an account.

An Introduction To Apple’s New Programming Language: Swift

swift-banner

This year at WWDC, the focus was so heavily on iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite, that what should have been the biggest news of the event, went rather under-appreciated. Apple introduced the Swift programming language to the world. This, to the end user, is barely news. However, to the developer community it might as well be a game changer. Certain programming languages have clear advantages over other programming languages, some are faster, some more efficient, some are just cleaner, some incredibly simple. Apple is the latest firm to create their own programming language after Google's Go (Golang) and Microsoft's .Net FrameworkSwift Programming Language claims to have learned from these languages, while staying true to its Objective C predecessor. Apple claim to have created the fastest, most robust high-level programming language. Let us explain.

ContactBox: Privately Share Contacts Between Android And iOS Devices

ContactBox-Intro.png
Smartphones have become smarter over the years. What was once a clunky little device we kept in our pockets to make phone calls has turned into a multi purpose machine which lets us play games, stream HD videos, and listen to music on the go. But what hasn't changed that much about smartphones is the way we manage our contacts. Sure, you can now sync your entire address book with Google or iCloud, but when it comes to sharing them with others, the default solutions still leave us wanting more. ContactBox is a new app for Android and iOS that tackles this issue by letting users create custom contact lists and privately send them to their friends via text or email. Read More

Slingshot confirm
Facebook's new Slingshot app is now available in the App Store and the Google Play Store for iOS and Android, respectively. The app, for now, seems to have been made available to users in the United States only so if you live elsewhere, you're in for a slightly longer wait. Before we get down to our review of the app, we're going to talk a little about privacy and what using Slingshot means. The app itself is indeed the Snapchat competitor eveeryone thought it would be and with a large company like Facebook behind it, the design is well up to par. Read More
