October 21, 2013 — by Xin Chan0


If you are fond of iphoneography like me, you will always find your iPhone’s storage precious especially with the basic 16GB model. It is disturbing at the moment that you find your phone running out of space when you want to take a video or some photos for some memorable moments. It is also a bad moment when you find not only insufficient space on your device but it is also running out of battery juices. To gain such visibility on storage space and battery life before you take pictures and videos with your stock Camera app, a newly released Cydia tweak called FreeSpaceCam is adding these into the Camera interface for your convenience.

SearchAmplius and SearchCollapse are new jailbreak tweaks developed by EDA Tweaks went live hand-in-hand that enhance and extend your SpotLight search results.

SearchAmplius allows you to configure and put additional search modules for use in Spotlight under the name of SearchLoader in the Settings app. The tweak adds 8 new modules to Spotlight searches including Cydia, Calculator, Weather, Stocks, YouTube, iTunes Store, App Store and Maps. Under the Extensions section, you can drag to rearrange the modules and also enable or disable specific modules by tapping them. You can also configure how many search results you want to display under each category which the values can be 5, 10, 15 or 20 for any of them. But I would recommend tuning it to a lower value to improve the total loading time.

July 23, 2013 — by Xin Chan0


In recent years I am often invited to various conferences, meetings and dinners in my industry and associations they I am affiliated to. It is always painful not only to recognize numerous people that I meet, but also to reorganize the business cards that I acquired from these people in a proper manner in which I haven’t developed myself to make it a good habit.

What I need could be just a simple business card scanning app that allows me to take the record instantly and, most importantly, where I met them as well. Now ABBYY Business Card Reader put this away.
