Vudu is one of the best names in the business of video streaming services, helped out immensely by the financial backing of Walmart, the company who owns it. Vudu subscribers have a digital marketplace where buying or renting films is possible. That kind of competition between streaming services is good for helping drive the price […]
iOS is to Apple mobile devices what Mac OS X is to the desktop computers. All smartphones and tablets made by Apple Inc. are shipped with the iOS operating system.
Since iOS is only available to be used on Apple smartphone and tablets, it doesn’t have anywhere near the number of shipments as its main competitor in Android. However, iOS is an excellent operating system that is neck and neck with Android, and sales would reflect that if Apple were to let it off its leash.
Jailbreaking is the iOS equivalent to rooting for Android. Unlike Android, Apple does its best effort to lock down the iOS operating system; thus making jailbreaking next to impossible to do with the modern-day versions of iOS.
Since iOS is designed strictly for mobile devices, the operating system is designed around the touchscreen input and not the keyboard or mouse like you would get from Mac OS X. iOS relies heavily on the use of applications. Outside of the apps, the operating system cannot do as many things as its desktop equivalent.
The most popular device to connect to a computer that is running on Windows 10 operating system is the iPhone. We all know the name iPhone way back since 2007 when Steve Jobs changed the world. To this day, the iPhone is the most popular mobile device in the world. As you likely know, the […]
Google Photos is no longer a part of Google+, and it is now a separate entity that helps you with managing your photos.

Prisma has revolutionized the way we add effects to our photos. It is an app that uses AI (artificial intelligence) to add filters to your photos and make them look more appealing than they originally are.

iBooks is a books library for Apple devices that allows you to keep all of your books at a single place for whenever you want to read them. Adding a new book to iBooks is not a difficult task as you can just buy a book from Apple and get it automatically added to your […]
TaiG is the main jailbreaking tool made available for iOS 8 software. As you probably already know, the TaiG team initially released it for Windows operating systems only. We created a workaround method for those who needed to find a way to jailbreak using Mac thanks to the help from a Virtual Machine. That was […]
One of the golden rules for any smartphone or mobile device software provider is to allow users to downgrade — at least for a period of time — so they can return back to the software version they were using before. Android and iOS have very different platforms for users. With Android, some devices are […]
Some of us live our daily lives without having any passcode lock on our displays. Others have passwords on but people around them know how to unlock it at any time. A minority of us continually changes the passcode to make sure nobody around them can possibly crack the code and access our super-confidential data. […]
Many people who originally buy iPhone’s choose to stay with the iPhone because it’s where all their music is stored — with iTunes, playlists available directly from the device itself and the dedicated music docks only work with Apple devices. To change platforms isn’t realistic unless you want to change everything else around you. Apple […]
The iOS 9 beta 4 is now up for grabs and available to download on all iPhone’s from the iPhone 4S and up, the iPad 2 and up, plus the iPod touch. All you need to do is sign up to be a member of the Apple Developer Program. Here’s what you need to do: […]
People all over the globe love Cydia tweaks for creating additional features within iOS software Apple do not provide. These days we are even getting Cydia tweaks developed for helping us within the walls of Cydia and using repositories, too. Currently in its beta stages, Timeout is a new jailbreak tweak that lets you add […]
The PP Jailbreaking tool is the secondary tool you should think about jailbreaking your device with if you want to unleash your mobile’s true potential. It’s widely regarded as the “rip off” version of TaiG and even TaiG themselves reportedly accused the PP team of stealing. That being said, many people have trialed the PP […]
iTunes 12.2.1 is now available to install on Microsoft Windows and Apple Mac OS X operating systems. It comes on the same day Apple released iOS 8.4.1 Beta 1 seeded to developers. Only people with a paid and registered developer account can get the iOS software release; anyone can download the latest iTunes version today. […]
We all know about downgrading our firmware and software update manually for the times there is no jailbreak available for the iOS updates we upgraded to earlier, but did you know you can downgrade a Jailbreak tweak, too? Sometimes we prefer older versions of the same tweak because it’s less “buggy” than the new version […]
Android Lollipop has been available for almost a year now and we’ll get the newer Android ‘M’ as an official release and not just as the Developer Preview like it is today. Lollipop is one of the largest changes we’ve seen made to the Android operating system since way back with 2.3 Gingerbread. As such, […]
Those of you who couldn’t resist the temptation of checking out the public beta releases of iOS 9 might now be wishing to downgrade back to the official stock build of iOS 8.4. iOS 8.4 is the current and latest version of iOS software available to anybody. The following is a guide that teaches you […]
Stefan Esser was the first man to jailbreak iOS 8.4 and he did show off the jailbreak to the world. According to Stefan, the TaiG team were former students in Essers hacking class and he’s been less than impressed with the way they’ve gone about their business. The so called rushed TaiG jailbreak released just […]
You might remember us reporting on the recent release of TaiG 2.3.1 that comes with the new Cydia 1.2.0. During the post I also mentioned how it was Cydia version 1.1.19 that changed the way we view Cydia: We skipped writing about the recent Cydia 1.1.19 release since it wasn’t attached to any TaiG jailbreak. However, that […]
The iPod touch 5G is a device that’s always involved in jailbreaking discussions, but seldom given the dedicated tutorial for owners to easily follow. If you are running the latest iOS 8.4 software update, thanks to Apple, you can easily jailbreak it today using the TaiG tool. There’s no other tools available to the public […]
The TaiG jailbreak team is continuously updating their tool to give users who have not yet jailbroken iOS 8.3 and iOS 8.4 a better experience. There were many complaints about the TaiG tool being “buggy” and it felt like a hurried release. While there doesn’t appear to be any TaiG bugs fixed directly in the […]
While most of us love rooting Android for keeping up with software and firmware updates that OEMs and phone carrier networks don’t push out quick enough, those on the Apple side of the fence love jailbreaking thanks to Cydia and its abundance of tweaks available. With Cydia tweaks, we can “tweak” the current OS and […]
The TaiG team produced proof today that they did create the iOS 8.3 and iOS 8.4 jailbreak first before the PP jailbreak team. TaiG is also not shying away from calling the headline “proof that PP Jailbreak stole our tool”. In any event, I don’t think there’s much difference in which you chose. However, the […]
Those interested in jailbreaking might be interested to learn that the team behind the PP Jailbreak reportedly released the iOS 8.3 untethered jailbreak first before TaiG. However, the team from TaiG claim that the PP Jailbreak team copied their tool. Regardless of who did it first, it is evident that each tool is made from […]
While most are jubilant about being granted a free jailbreak in which they can use that’s fully untethered finally, others are upset about the amount of bugs within the iOS 8.3/iOS 8.4 TaiG jailbreak and feel the release was rushed. Some hacking experts think TaiG definitely rushed the release and only had money in their […]
One of the great things that iOS 8 brought with it was the ability to use a custom keyboard on the iPhone that runs this latest version of the iOS operating system. Up until iOS 7, users had no choice but to use the default keyboard that Apple provided them, but they now have an […]
