A while ago I was engaged in a business plan with a friend of mine about mobile games. Mind-mapping is the very first thing after brainstorming in order to best capture and visualise our pieces of ideas. It is yet one of the best school-taught methods to organise ideas in an intuitive way. I did try a few iOS apps on the iPad that allow me to do so. However, they never do a good job due to some weird bugs or lack of ease to use. Until recently I opted into MindNode.

Recently Jay Freeman (a.k.a @saurik), the creator of Cydia updated Cydia Substrate (originally named as Mobile Substrate) to version 0.9.5000 to be compatible with both iOS 7 and ARM64 CPU used on iPhone 5s, iPad Air and iPad Mini with Retina Display. This is definitely a very exciting news on the New Year Eve for users of these devices with solely Cydia running on them for some days, including myself. So I rushed in and there have been quite a number of tweak being pushed to default repos that are recompiled with the substrate update with 64-bit support. So here are the 10 tweaks that I straightly installed after that.

Turning an iPad into a point of sale device requires some investment, but most POS systems for the tablet don’t offer a second functionality. Square, the payments company, has filled the gap with Square Stand – a piece of hardware that works both as a credit card holder reader and a mount holder for iPad 2, iPad 3 (30-pin connector) and iPad 4 (lightning connector).

It’s ideal for brick and mortar store owners with an iPad in possession. The card reader is featured at the front and it is compatible with several third-party accessories such as cash drawer, bar code scanner and printer.

The iPad Air is one of the worlds lightest tablets. However, don’t let the weight of this device fool you. This new iPad Air is blazing fast and lightweight.

GeekBench is a tool used on computers to measure the speed of the internal hardware such as the processors. It tells users how fast there machine or in this case, iPad Air is performing.

After running the initial test on the iPad Air I was simply amazed. It delivered scores twice as fast as the previous iPad 4 gen and the iPhone 5 too. What does this mean in layman terms? The higher the score is, the faster the device performs. This means gamers will get more fluid gaming on the bigger games such as COD or Real Racing.

I personally took RR3 for a spin on the iPad Air and it was amazing. The fluidness of the game overall was remarkable. It also started up much faster too. Want to see first hand how the iPad Air performs, watch the video below.

I have been always looking for better replacement for iOS stock apps that could not fulfill all my needs on practicality and design for particular categories. There are always the top-rated and state-of-the-art apps out in the market that everybody uses, yet many other choices that fits certain habits for certain group of people. 

Productivity apps are the one that I always browse and seek for perfection to get some installed on my homescreen. But there are limited slots for them…
