KeyRaider Malware Infects Jailbroken iOS devices. Here’s How to Check for It

September 2, 2015 — by Hawon Nguyen0


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.

August 29, 2015 — by Hawon Nguyen0


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.

MindNode Updated for iPhone 6 With New Features

November 3, 2014 — by Xin Chan1


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.

Life is full of decisions.

Share Lovely Emoji Combos with Emoji Keypad

October 27, 2014 — by Xin Chan0


One of the most anticipated and welcomed features in iOS 8 is that users are able to add third-party keyboards, which has been long available on Android. There has been tons of options that serve various purposes but yet to be very smooth. Emoji has been a built-in keyboard in earlier iOS releases. However, you cannot get beyond the standard set that more than a single emotion icon with a single click. If you need a combined one, either, with your creativity, or copy it from apps, website or message history. Now, with Emoji Keypad, you will have a library of Emoji combined emoji presets right from the iOS keyboard.

Review: Dog & Bone Wetsuit Waterproof Rugged Case for iPhone 5s

February 6, 2014 — by Xin Chan0


It has been quite some time from my previous review on an iPhone case here. Since then, I have also tried out some more other cases with specific functionalities such as the Otterbox wallet case. This is not just for interest but also because of a reason of need as it is handy for me to carry downstairs for some snacks.

Recently I have been looking for a tough case for my iPhone 5s mainly used for traveling that I planned for the year, especially for hiking, sunshine and beach. So I need a waterproof case with shock protection. But what I have seen in the market, the options look bulky, and they are heavy and expensive. More importantly, there are quite some trade-offs for screen responsiveness and button accessibility.

Thanks to Dog & Bone, I recently received a case that I have been looking for that suits my picky requirement.
