  • 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.

    iPShare is available in Cydia for $2.90.

    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. iTracker is free to download however it costs $9.99 for a license.

      Is iTracker tracking really in real time? Like with mobileme? Or is it like all the other apps? If so i'll stick with fonehome...

      iTracker = epic fail. Not the price, but rather the app itself. Stolen iPhone? DFU>iTunes>restore>setup as new iPhone. Try tracking that, iTracker. If there was a full proof way, as in blocking a restore without a password of some sort, it'd work and be awesome, but without it, it's only good for loss or being stolen by a total idiot. A password lock is literally just as good.

      I bought Fullscreen For Safari almost as soon as I saw it. I thought it was a great idea. I was, however, disappointed with the experience soon after configuring the options.

      One of the best things about mobile Safari is the seemingly intelligent way that it (usually) handles zooming in on different parts of web pages. So when using Fullscreen for safari, this behavior is affected. Either safari zooms on the wrong part of the web page when trying to toggle fullscreen (double tap), or the triple-tap just simply didn't work for me when I tried to use that instead.

      Also (only an opinion), but I found that using the double finger swipe method for forward and back navigation, I thought it was terribly inefficient to have to use two hands. I can usually get around in safari using only my thumb as I hold the phone in portrait orientation.

      Anyone else experience the same thing? Also, maybe I'm missing something configuration-wise. If so, please send me a clue - my $1.49 was spent (foolishly) on an app I uninstalled 5 mins after I bought it.

      Again, a terrific idea that didn't work for me at all.

      iTracker might be a good addition if I was careless with my iPhone. When not in use, it goes straight back into my right pocket.

      GPower Pro is a pretty big evolutionary step backwards from SBSettings, which has all the same options, plus "safe mode", and is free. That's like re-inventing the wheel and making it oval.

      What the hell is up with iDashboard? Why is it giving me weather and time in Houston, TX? I see no instructions on how to configure it and I've looked through settings and tried looking around in the app. Oh well, the interface was not that good anyway. Keeps updating the weather and at times it would take several minutes to do so.

      Edit: Also iTracker sounds like a great tool, but you have to know that an app like that is bound to have some price tag on it. So the previously advertised price of free should have sounded fishy to whoever read this article.

      Wow, fullscreen Safari is TRULY revolutionary! Not! Atomic Web has exactly the same features AND MORE for $.99. So do plenty of other ninety-nine cent browsers. GPowerPro? Why hold the power button to do that when you can just download Activator and set it to whatever you want, for free? SMS on iPad I'm pretty sure is offered through the App Store for free. I know SMS and MMS are available for iPods, and I'm pretty sure the app had a + next to it. This is kinda a sorry list this time…

      People are generally ungrateful. The same happened to me but with a car... I could have had this guy's 200? Chevy Cobalt with alarm and power entry. Didn't get a smile or a thanks...

      Almost make you WANT to turn to crime.

      why is the sbsettings vibrate toggle in there? That has been out for a long time right? I have never really been able to get that working properly. Does it work for anyone else?

      Yep. I pretty much agree with all your views...

      I would be surprised if it did not use more memory as well....
