ShowOrHide: View Hidden Files Without Using Terminal Command [Mac]

We’ve covered quite a few tips in the past that required access to hidden files on your Mac. Additionally, hidden files aren’t just used for tweaking; every app you install creates a folder on your hard drive, which is saved in the Library folder, hidden by default. While you should just hope that no app requires you to ever go digging after these files, viewing hidden files on Mac isn’t a big deal, and can easily be done via a Terminal command. However, for those that don’t want to go there, there is ShowOrHide - a free Mac app that does nothing more that toggling the visibility of your hidden files. Read More

Photo Enhancer: Hide Photos In Any iOS Album & Reorder Camera Roll [Cydia]

Apple maintains a pretty tight control over almost all areas of iOS, specially if you don’t have access to the Cydia store. One thing which has always bugged a lot of users about iPhone is the way it handles photos. In very old versions of iOS, it was not even possible to delete albums without using iTunes, and then there were all those Photo Stream horror stories. When you look closely, however, it is evident that the problems encountered by the Photos app in iPhone, iPad and iPod touch can be resolved with only a few minor changes, and those changes are just the thing Photo Enhancer brings to jailbroken iDevices. Using this fresh tweak, you will be able to do two things; first, Photo Enhancer gives users complete control over the way albums appear in the stock Photos app, and you can even change the position of Camera Roll. The second, and more important feature the tweak brings to the Photos app, is the Hide button, which will let you hide all the photos in all the albums. Read More

Connecting To Hidden Wi-Fi Issue To Be Resolved In Mango

If you are a user of Windows Phone 7, then some of the basic issues that an Android user (and a WP7 hater) is sure to throw at you are missing features like the lack of copy paste (now resolved), ridiculously small number of apps (we are getting there, with 25k already in the Marketplace) and too much security (read inaccessibility of hidden Wi-Fi networks). On the latter you can now hold your own in any argument. Hidden Wi-Fi connectivity is finally coming to Mango! For a lot of people, it is the unavailability of such relatively small features that make Windows Phone 7 virtually impossible to use. If you are already using a beta version of the upcoming Mango update, then don't be surprised if you don't find the hidden SSID functionality on your phone. The feature has not been rolled out just yet, but will make its way to WP7 in the final Mango build. Read More

How To Access Hidden Wi-Fi Networks On Your Windows Phone 7 HTC Device

One of the features that distinguish Windows Phone 7 from other operating systems is the strict security measures it takes to ensure that it is almost impossible to break into the user’s privacy confines. Not only that, Microsoft certainly knows how to protect it’s own intellectual property too (nothing open source when it comes to Windows!). But they can go a bit overboard when trying to be secure and overdo the whole thing a little. People usually hide their Wi-Fi networks to ensure safety from casual hackers. But at the same time it leads a person into a false sense of security and this makes hidden Wi-Fi networks a security risk. Due to this, WP7 does not allow users to see and connect to a hidden Wi-Fi network. But if a hidden network is the only choice you have, then what to do? HTC users have a choice. Read More

How To Enable ‘Show Hidden Files And Folders Option’ When Disabled By a Virus

A few days back my “Show hidden files and folders” option was not working at all even if I selected the option Show hidden files and folders from the folder option window, the changes would just disappear upon closing the dialog.
