  • What's New In Cydia: FullScreen for Safari, GPower, iPShare, Chicken Fighter
    Here is your weekly breakdown of what is new in Cydia. So get to it, launch Cydia and get the latest and greatest.

    FullScreen for Safari
    Yllier

    Note: Only for iOS 4.x

    "Use Safari like never before!" says developer Yllier, with his recent release of FullScreen for Safari. This tweak creates a much more intuitive way to interact with Safari using touch gestures. Actions can be assigned to each Gesture, so you can customize the way it works to your liking.

    FullScreen for Safari is available for $1.49 via Cydia.


    GPower Pro
    John Heaton


    Gpower Pro, brought to you by John Heaton, is a simple tweak that modifies the options displayed when you press and hold the power button on your iDevice.

    Rather than just showing "Slide to Power Off", you'll now also have the ability to Respring and reboot in the same manner.

    GPower Pro is available in Cydia for $0.99 in Cydia.


    iPShare
    Mario Bucsics



    iPShare, developed by Mario Bucsics, is an App that allows you to share your 3G Data Connection from the iPhone or iPad within your local WiFi Network.

    "It's basically a SOCKS5 Proxy so you can create a WiFi Network on our Computer, connect the iPhone/iPad to that Network and browse the Internet on your Computer using the iPhones/iPads Internet connection."

    Note: You need to be connected to a WiFi Network for the app to work properly. Requires iPhone or iPad 3G.

      That iTracker looks sweet, though I was reading more in Cydia and it appears that you need to pay to get an activation code? Correct me if I'm wrong.

      Ugh... Always a catch. That would suck. Not sure if it's true, but sounds about right.

      iTracker is an App that helps you to recover your iPhone in the event that you lose it. The app allows you to get the phone number of the potential thief, or track the GPS location of your iPhone in real-time. The best part is that it's completely free.

      Main features:
      ●Detect the Lost-Status of your iPhone.
      ●Send you the notification SMS which contain the thief's phone number.
      ●Send you GPS SMS contain the location of you iPhone.
      ●Bind and identify 1-3 SIM card.
      ●Register 1-3 Numbers to Call.
      ●Send SMS silently without the thief's knowledge
      ●Provide test functions.
      ●Always keep in protection, even if someone reboot the iPhone.

      You can find iTracker in Cydia for FREE.[/QUOTE]



      Come correct buddy.

      iTracker is not completely free, it costs $9.99 for a license

      Do you people actually review these apps before you post false information?

      I have no problem purchasing this app but don't say its "completely free" when its NOT

      Darn. I knew iTracker being free sounded too good to be true.

      I'll pass on paying for GPowerPro.. SBSettings does the same thing for free.

      Guess I'll skip on iTracker then. I don't want my phone to get stolen, then my free license expires while I try to get my phone back. And I don't have 10 dollars to spend on it. Still cool idea, but falsely advertised.

      What sucks is when you have an iLocalis (or was it Cylay back then?) account and for some reason, your iP3G gets stuck in a recovery cycle, so you restore, but before you can reinstall all of your apps, your girlfriend makes you take her out... and of course, you lose your phone somewhere between the bar and the dance floor...

      Thankfully, the 3G[s] released shortly thereafter, so I just went ahead and picked one of those up... but I did have to go without a smartphone for almost a month... the first time without an iPhone since the 2G released, and the first time without a smartphone since before my iMate Jam (or whatever HP clunker I had before that).

      Of course, the next summer, I find a perfect 32GB 3G[s] in an otterbox, and I actually tracked the owner down to get it back to her. Didn't even get a thank you!

      What's so neat about GPower? Just seems redundant, as SBSettings give you all those options for free.

      Seriously! I get the RSS feed that says iTracker is free, jump directly into Cydia to download, then have to double-check with the forum and notice that THEN you've edited it? Who double-checked this info before posting??

      It didn't even say "this app is free." The original article touted "The best part is that it's completely free" as though he knew for certain!

      Very disappointed in the bait and switch here...

      Gpower = kinda useless. Everyone has sbsettings. Kind of a waste in my eyes.

      Agree with the rec for FoneHome ($1) from the app store. Also Device Locator ($5). Fortunately haven't had to use either to recover my phone, but both seem very solid (purchased the latter prior to the former planning to only keep one, but couldn't decide which was better so have accounts (free, just the price of the app) with both). Of the new Cydia apps mentioned above, iDashboard's all I'm really interested in. Decided not to install any new Cydia apps until I upgrade to 4.1 as soon as PwnageTool drops though.
