Cyder-Cydia For Your PC

Written by Blind Guardian over at iPhoneApps.ru, this application helps you manage Cydia from your PC. This is good for those of you who are fed up with Cydia’s slow load times. Obviously it will load faster on a unit with more RAM (too bad that unit happens to be Windows only at the moment). No word on when or if there will be a Mac version, but we will certainly keep you posted.

Here is what you can do with this app:

  • Sync between PC and iPhone
  • Download & update packages on iPhone
  • Install new packages to iPhone

Adium To Support Twitter

Adium developer Zac West talked about the progress of adding Twitter his popular chat client for Mac-Adium.

Many Twitter users now have an abundance of applications installed on their desktop and mobile devices to Tweet with. In my opinion I am overwhelmed by all of these options. When Twitter is fully incorporated into Adium that will be one less window open on my already cluttered workspace.

Heres how it will work:
You can follow and unfollow Twitter feeds by adding and removing them from your contact list.
When you IM a Twitter contact it will send them a direct message.
Your Twitter feed is displayed in a group chat that you can open and close at any given time.
Replies are also made very easy.

If you are familiar with Adium and are an avid Twitter user then you will be as excited as I am when I see the next update!

For more details on this as well as screenshots-visit the Adium Blog

[Release] Rock Your Phone

Rock Your Phone, which we mentioned in an earlier post, has finally been released. Rock Your Phone includes their own jailbreak (what they like to call ‘soft unlock’) utility as part of the process. The jailbreak method is similar to Pwnage Tool which we are all familiar with.

The drawback to using Rock My Phone is that you have to go through their jailbreak method to get the mobile app. Not to worry though, Rock My Phone runs side by side with Cydia and the AppStore.

So far there are five applications that have been released through Rock My Phone:

  1. Vonagent - $9.99 USD
  2. IntelliScreen - $9.99 USD
  3. Elert - Free
  4. Intelli Dial $2.99 USD
  5. MyProfiles - $12.99 USD

The Rock My Phone store is nice because it allows a 10 day trial period on all applications before you decide to buy. Also they accept payment through PayPal as well as all major credit cards. Rock My Phone is not an alternative to Cydia as they do not intend to host free apps, rather focus on commercial apps.

Cydia may have some competition however long time jailbreakers will most likely continue to support Saurik and his countless contributions to the community.

You can get more information at www.rockyourphone.com

Blackboard Learning System for iPhone

Many college campuses use a web utility known as Blackboard. For those of you who don’t know, Blackboard is a website (and an upcoming iPhone app) that allows students to log in with their full name and student ID and check their grades, upcoming tests, lecture notes and slides, upcoming events, class syllabus, and much much more. It is a great tool for any college student (given the campus uses Blackboard) to stay on track and up to date with their busy schedules.

iPhone 3.0 Software Announced

Save The Date!

March 17th, 2009

Apple iPhone 3.0 Software

That’s right! On March 17th, 2009 Apple will introduce the new 3.0 Software. Apple is calling this an “advance preview of what we’re building,” so don’t expect a public release to be ready on the 17th, but rather a new SDK which will allow developers to start working with the new OS. Hopefully now we can see some push notification and less restrictions in the AppStore given this newly coded firmware.

IF YOU ARE JAILBROKEN-DO NOT UPDATE TO 3.0 (or anything else for that matter) UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE!!!
