Vimeo gains finely graded notification settings, more informative layouts

Vimeo (Apple TV 001)

Following up on its August update which brought out uploading functionality in addition to some interesting private sharing options, Vimeo on Thursday issued a brand new version of its iPhone and iPad client.

Now at version 5.1.1, Vimeo’s video pages have gained more informative layouts with the title, creator, play count and other information.

Active Vimeo users often complained about an avalanche of notifications from the site. Feeling their pain, the video sharing site has finally made it possible to cherry-pick notifications to receive in the Vimeo app.

iH8sn0w shows off untethered iOS 8.1.1 jailbreak

ios 8-1-1 jailbreak

Well known iOS hacker iH8sn0w has posted a new video on his YouTube channel of an iPad 3 (J2a model) running an untethered iOS 8.1.1 jailbreak. This is significant because 8.1.1 patched 3 of the Pangu team’s exploits, effectively killing the latest jailbreak.

As usual, just because we have proof that a firmware can be jailbroken, doesn’t mean that we’re guaranteed to see a public release anytime soon. In fact, it’s worth pointing out that iH8sn0w has in the past demonstrated jailbreaks that never saw the light of day.... Read the rest of this post here

AppHeads: an upcoming tweak that reinvents iOS multitasking

AppHeads

iOS multitasking remained relatively untouched for the first several years of its existence, and although iOS 7 revamped its UI, it still maintained the core idea of using one app at a time. AppHeads is an upcoming jailbreak tweak that will reinvent iOS multitasking for some and, at the very least, greatly enhance it for others.

If you’re familiar with Facebook Messenger, you probably already have an idea of what the interface of AppHeads will look like. It uses the same round icons as Facebook Messenger, but instead of juggling conversation threads and friends’ faces, AppHeads uses these bubbles to manage running applications. You can watch this tweak in action in the video below....

IntelliScreenX for iOS 8 is due to touch down tonight, here’s our full video walkthrough

IntelliscreenX iOS 8

Get ready for IntelliScreenX for iOS 8 to touch down any minute now! The update, which is being released as an open beta, is scheduled to appear on Cydia’s ModMyi repo sometime tonight. If you’re somehow unfamiliar with IntelliScreenX, it’s a tweak that allows you to supercharge your Notification Center. It brings the ability to add Twitter, RSS, Mail, Facebook, and more to the Notification Center, and features Lock screen access as well.

IntelliScreenX is by far one of the deepest jailbreak tweaks of all time, and it’s the reason why a lot of people jailbreak. We’ve been able to go hands-on with a copy of the IntelliScreenX for iOS 8, and have tested it on a jailbroken iPhone 6 Plus.

Intelliborn has been working hard to prepare ISX for iOS 8 and for the new iPhones, and their hard work has paid off. Have a look at our full 12+ minute video walkthrough inside for the details on why this tweak remains such a staple for jailbreakers.

Major content networks launch Streaming Video Alliance without Netflix or YouTube

Float around the internet long enough, and you'll find a video stream that just doesn't wanna work. Maybe you're lacking some plug-in, or something's up with your browser? Either way, bad times. To help end situations like this, and to ensure the best video streaming experience possible, some of the biggest names in content delivery have formed "The Streaming Video Alliance." While big names like Yahoo, Major League Baseball (a powerhouse of its own) and Fox are onboard, there are two notable omissions: Netflix and YouTube. Like, really big omissions -- as these two account for over half of all internet downloads in the US (according to Sandvine).

By comparison, the third most popular service (Amazon Video, also not part of the alliance) is a huge drop down at just 1.6 percent of peak period downloads. Still, the Streaming Video Alliance (not to be confused with the Internet Streaming Media Alliance) has enough names signed up that its influence on what you watch isn't to be sniffed at. The door is, of course, still open for Netflix and YouTube (or Amazon) to join at any time. The alliance's main goals may center on the bits you'll never see -- content delivery techniques, industry collaborations and business standards -- but they all result in one thing: you watching the game without a glitch.

Now saying ‘Ok Google’ to your Android phone can search inside apps

Android's Material Design facelift is eventually going to trickle down into the entirety of Google's services, but for now the folks in Mountain View are just trying to make sure all its apps look consistent. The latest in a long line of Android apps to get the redesign treatment is Google's Search for Android, but that new look just might be the least interesting thing about it. No no, with the update in place, you can just speak and have Google search within apps installed on your phone. Itching to pull up tracks on TuneIn or get cracking on your holiday travel plans through TripAdvisor? All it'll take is a quick "OK Google" command to get things started.
