Snapchat is locking users who have Snapchat jailbreak tweaks installed on their iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad. If your account is currently getting locked out of Snapchat, chances are you have got a jailbreak tweak such as Phantom, GhostPref or SnapMoreText running. The application now detects for jailbreak tweaks specifically used to breaks Snapchat features and/or adds more functionalities to the app.

For example, if you have Phantom for Snapchat tweak, you’re allowed to disable Live Stories, screenshot without notification, play a Snap for unlimited of time, and much more. According to CokePokes, creator of Phantom, he tweeted out today. In the future, there might be a way to bypass this.

Looking for some ways to supercharge your Camera app? These are the best Camera tweaks we found on Cydia for your jailbroken iOS 9 devices.

There are thousands of applications out there on the App Store that iPhone and iPad users can use to replace their stock Camera app. However, through personal experience, I still believe that the built-in Camera app is still the best because it is easy to use, taken photos or videos will go directly to your Photo Gallery, no ads, or and it give you some of the top filters.

Instagram is known for its simple and easy-to-share photos application with millions of active users. The service recently jumped on board and introduced direct messaging. A feature that has existed in Twitter and Snapchat in ages.  At first, Instagram Direct Conversations feature were the lack of feature and missing certain design elements.

However, the company has quickly improved this functionality and revamped the whole entire feature. Direct Messaging in Instagram is now sleek, straightforward, and you will receive notification when someone send you a new message or reply to an existence conversation.

The notifications feature might annoy some people if they continuously receive messages from marketers, their friends while at work, or just don’t like getting notifications from Instagram at all. You can quickly turn this functionality off right from your Instagram app.

How to write unlimited words in Snapchat without Jailbreak

Snapchat is a great social application on our iPhone and iPad. But with the limitations that it brings, sometimes users prefer another alternative such as Twitter and Instagram. One of the biggest dislikes that I see from most Snapchat users is the fact that they can’t write as many characters as they wanted. Of course, Twitter has that limitation, but it’s up to 150 characters while Snapchat only allows you to write in a single line.

This problem can be solved if your device is jailbroken, meaning you have access to Cydia to install tweaks like Phantom for Snapchat by CokePokes. For some users, jailbreaking isn’t their thing or it’s not worth it just for a single application. Good news, now you can bypass Snapchat character limit without jailbreak tweak.

Last week I wrote a tutorial on how to get RetroArch, an alternative emulator to NDS4iOS for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. The reason for that being ND4iOS is no longer support iOS 9 and it was removed from its developer repo. This is a really bad news for a lot of iOS users, especially the one that still want to play some of the newer Pokemon on their iPhone or iPad.

As the title suggested, this tutorial will show you how to get the good old NDS4iOS back and running smoothly on jailbroken and non-jailbroken iOS 9 devices. This version should work with iOS 9.0 – 9.1, 9.2, and Cydia is not required. Let’s get straight to it.

Just like photos, videos, and documents, your downloaded songs should also be back up once awhile, whether that’s through a computer or cloud server. For some people, this might not be a convenient way since it deals with a computer, going to a specific folders, and such things.

A new jailbreak tweak called MusicExplorer is here to help you get over that long process of backing up all the music on your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad. The major goal of this Cydia tweak is for users to not touch any other device or operating system rather than their iOS devices. MusicExplorer allows you to backup or share music from your iOS music library in the .zip form, send an individual song via a text message, email attachment, or upload them to cloud services like Google Drive and Dropbox.

Even though Apple has made some changes to their App Switcher in iOS 9, the features, how it function remain the same, and there is definitely room for improvements. A new jailbreak tweak on Cydia today called Lylac is here to add more features and give users the ability to customize iOS 9 App Switcher.

As far as functionality, Lylac allows users to combine both Control Center and App Switcher together. Thus, making it extremely easy to use different toggles, music controls, and see which applications is running on the background. Lylac also works really well with newer iPhone models (6s/6s Plus).

Without doing much research, I can immediately tell that download videos are one of the most requested features on YouTube. Not only when users use it on the Web but also on their smartphone, specifically iPhone and other devices such as iPod touch and iPad.

Of course, with today’s technologies you can easily create a third party software or app and can immediately download any videos on YouTube. The web version is quick, easy, and friendly. But when it comes to mobile applications that allow you to quickly download YouTube videos, expect some popups, infinite ads, and much more.

How to Install RetroArch Emulator for iOS 9 – 9.0.2

November 9, 2015 — by Hawon Nguyen0

One of the easiest ways you can download free and paid games on the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad is from the App Store. In fact, if your iOS device is not jailbroken, this is the only method. With that being said, iPhone and iPad with Cydia installed can use an emulator such as Nd4iOS, GBA4iOS, and RetroArch to install games from other devices on your iPhone.

Apple has become really strict when it comes to installing an emulator or any unsigned applications on their product. However, Cydia will help you get rid of that restriction and allows you to get any emulators. As you may know, ND4iOS (Nintendo emulator) is no longer available, and the Game Boy Advance only supports iOS 8, so we are left with the only solution, which is RetroArch.
