igSpeedster: an awesome tweak for managing multiple Instagram accounts

igSpeedster

igSpeedster is a new jailbreak tweak that’s squarely aimed an social media managers with multiple Instagram accounts. But you don’t need to be a social media manager to benefit from igSpeedster, as it’s not uncommon for a person to have multiple Instagram accounts.

It adds the ability to save images to your photo library, tap on links, copy captions, and repost photos. It really is one of the best Instagram jailbreak tweaks that I’ve seen thus far....

Apple on Thursday posted a new ad to its YouTube channel labeled “iPhone – Apple Pay.” The spot is the latest in the company’s ongoing “if it’s not an iPhone, it’s not an iPhone” campaign, and of course highlights its new mobile payment service.

The commercial is very similar to previous ads in the campaign. It begins with a voiceover saying “this is an iPhone,” and then the video proceeds to show how Apple Pay works. The shot closes with the tagline “if it’s not an iPhone, it’s not an iPhone.”... Read the rest of this post here

Hands-on with Multiplexer, the six-in-one multitasking tweak

Multiplexer 2

Today, I got my first chance to try out Multiplexer, the highly anticipated upcoming multitasking tweak from Elijah Frederickson and Andrew Abosh, that’s currently setting the jailbreak community ablaze.

Multiplexer can rightly be labeled as an “ultimate multitasking tweak”, because it basically combines six multitasking-oriented jailbreak tweaks into one.

The tweak blends traditional side-by-side multitasking options along with enhanced backgrounding, and multiple desktops. But all of that is just the tip of the iceberg. Step inside as we give you the first hands-on look at Multiplexer on video.... Read the rest of this post here

Extensify: an upcoming tweak store for non-jailbroken iPhones

EXTENSIFY APP

One of the big concerns about iOS 9 is that Apple is rumored to have made jailbreaking a lot more difficult with its upcoming OS update. While the verdict is still out on “Rootless” and what impact it may or may not have on jailbreaking in general, it’s time to start thinking outside of the box.

Two developers have done just that. Majd Alfhaily and Kevin Ko, better known around jailbreak circles as @freemanrepo and @uhelios, have created something pretty special. It’s called Extensify, and it’s a tweak store that allows you to modify and add new features to App Store apps without needing to jailbreak.

When Alfhaily first approached me with word of this, I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical. Tweaks without a jailbreak? Huh? But then I actually tried Extensify and saw that it was legit.

Multify Keyboard expansion

Multify—one of the most impressive multitasking jailbreak tweaks that we’ve seen thus far—is now available for jailbreakers running iOS 8.3 and iOS 8.4. Up until now, the tweak wasn’t compatible with the latest jailbroken firmware, but that has now been remedied.
