Earlier this week, we informed you guys about a new malicious software called KeyRaider that is responsible for nearly 250,00 hacked iCloud accounts. Unlike most viruses, this malware only infected those with jailbroken iPhone and iPad. Specifically, anyone that added shady repository and download pirated jailbreak tweaks are most likely to already have this malware running inside their device. From personal experiences and different research, we found that if you stay away from any illegal packages and Cydia sources, then you are safe from this.
We have seen many popular web browsers make its ways to the mobile devices like iOS and Android. However, something that a lot of people are waiting for is the official Firefox browser for iPhone and iPad. Mozilla, the team behind Firefox has announced that they’re working on Apple’s Firefox back in December of last year. Recently, a selected number of beta testers were able to get their hand on the beta version and we think that it’s stable enough for Mozilla to release their first public preview to normal users.
With that being said, FireFox Public Preview for iOS is now available for download. But there is a little catch, though, the application is currently downloadable for those in New Zealand only. Of course, it will be released worldwide in a couple of days. For now, you can check out some of the outstanding features in Firefox.
There are several reasons why someone would want to enable the Private Browsing feature on their iPhone or iPad. Most commonly, it’s to protect themselves from advertising agencies because most browsers including our stock browser, Safari, track our data for ads purposes. Another good example would be to avoid others from violating their privacy.
The default settings in Safari store all the websites and searches that users went to and allows them to easily get access to that information just in case they close all the tabs. Last but not least, auto-fill data, this feature is somewhat helpful as it automatically enters our login credential to a website, only if you’ve done so previously.
Apple operating system is well-known for its robust security and so on rare cases we see an iPhone or iPad being hacked. In the past, there were several incidents where hackers steal revenue by injecting their scripts to iOS devices and most recently over 220,000 iCloud accounts and passwords were stolen. Just because the iPhone operating system is really good when it comes to protecting you from malicious malware, that doesn’t mean it’s unbreakable.
A recent research from Palo Alto networks has discovered a new piece of malware called KeyRaider that aims at jailbroken users and their devices. This malware allows the hackers to steal Apple’s iCloud accounts. As up to this point, statistics showed that KeyRaider has helped hackers steal over 250,000 Apple accounts. These iCloud accounts do not just based in the U.S but also in many different countries where iPhone and iPad are popular, including China, Australia, France, Germany, South Korea, Singapore, and many more.
Through many iOS releases, major or minor, Apple still hasn’t bothered to change its lockscreen interface. The design and its functionality remain the same even though the company did modernize it a little bit to live up with the design standards. Earlier this month, we saw a post on Jailbreak sub-Reddit about a redesigned lockscreen interface made by a former Apple employee. Of course, everyone has to love it and sure enough someone decided to come up with a jailbreak tweak that integrate these features into our iOS devices.
A recently released tweak called FutureLock is here to turn the concept into reality. With that being said, let’s dive into it and see what’s so special and cool about this package.
As Instagram users, we all have to admit that Instagram still lack important features. This gave many iOS developers the opportunity to create third-party applications to meet these needs. However, I know that the team behind Instagram is working extremely hard to roll out new features for its users. For example, in today’s update, the Facebook-owned company has made it possible to post landscape, portrait photos and videos without using any third-party applications from the App Store.
You can find multiple apps today that offer you the ability to add filters to your pictures. However, users who are looking for a little more creativity should pay attention to the app we’re reviewing today.
If you’re looking to enhance the appeal of your photos by adding depth or some form of typography instantly, you should try Over. It’s an app that enables you to add custom-made fonts and well-crafted artwork to images. And it supplements these features with easy-to-use functionality and a sleek design.
When recording a video with our iPhone, there’s a button beside the record/stop button that enables you to snap images while you record. However, the images can only be snapped when you record, and once you’re done with the video, there is no way to extract photos from the video.
Keeping that in mind, we would like to share our thoughts with you on an app we came across. It’s called Taplet, and it allows users to record HD videos and take HD photos during the recording session, just like the default camera app. However, it stands out by giving an option to save any part of a video as an image, with frame-by-frame support.
There are loads of photo editing apps for iPhone, and a majority of them include heavy-handed features that make it difficult to churn out beautiful images. For those who don’t like the hassle of digging through all the features to get desired results, Litely is available.
It’s an app that comes with high-quality adjustable filters that won’t ruin your images, and more filters can acquired through in-app purchases. It’s a photo filtering and editing app that would enable users to create the best quality photos in the shortest possible time.
Productivity apps are always welcomed with open arms by iPhone users. App developers look to create new ways to assist users in managing their tasks, and remembering things we’re prone to forget now and then.
As a result, we have an array of task managers and to-do apps offering calendar and email integration, rewards for task completion, and other things to motivate you to get things done.
But QUEST is a newly released app in this genre that does things quite differently. It is actually crossed with a game. The user can create lists, and tasks will be listed as ‘quests’ and the user reaches a higher level upon completing a particular task. The app is geared towards users who are motivated by receiving rewards.
How to use QUEST for iOS
QUEST doesn’t have social integration and you are the only player in this app, so you do not need to sign up for any account to use it.
