    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.

    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.

    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.

      Isn't MobileMe $99, I think $9.99 is a better price. Posting what you posted is as misleading as the "totally free" deal.

      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.

      Where is it in SB Settings? What is it called ?

      When you open SBSettings, it is the power button on the bottom right. Give it a tap and you'll see a menu pop up asking what power option you want to do.

A password lock is literally just as good.
      I think you vastly over estimate the average thief or person that finds a phone. Not everyone is tech savvy, and there are plenty of people out there that have never even used one of these phones.

      That said, under your same logic, locks and alarms on our houses and cars are worthless too. You are always going to find someone able to "get through the defenses" Hell, it isn't hard to rob a place, if you chose to do so. It is the morality of the average person that keeps us from harm, not necessarily all these safeguards. This app is more for a bit of piece of mind, or to help let you know where you left your phone if you can;t find it, in my eyes anyway...

      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!
      you're tell me that she just walked away without a hint of gratitude after the trouble you went through to get her lost iphone back to her.

      that's kind of hard to believe!

      and what was your reaction to all that?

      you much of called her something

      I know I would've been mad as hell if I was in your shoes.

      yes but breaking a numeric security keypad is a lot harder than just restoring an iphone. I also wonder why an iphone restore security was never implemented in first place, that way apps like itracker would've been much more useful.

      Already had FullScreen for safari, and GPower Pro for a week. They are both very nice.

      I often thought the same thing about the end result of these so called security apps. The passcode is easily defeated.

      About over-estimating a thief--the below average thief or person Sven knows how to access info on the net. That being said, they can do research on how to defeat security protocols on iPhones. The passcode is. Good Idea but it can eventually fail by simply plugging it into the computer etc.

      Hmm. I may check put itracker. Currently I have an ilocalis account, but perhaps when that expires. Despite what others say about restoring a phone, the object here is to track it to the new location. I left my phone in a cab and the cabbie took it home and gave it to his kids, who did a restore on it. Not before ilocalis showed me the house it was in and I drove over and politely told them I tracked my phone to the house and would like it back. It was returned. Though I had to then downgrade and re-jb, but at least I got it back.

      was the cabbie nervous when you showed up? and how were you able to locate your iphone through ilocalis so fast or did the cabbie took his time before restoring?

      I had trouble like yours yesterday evening. Give it some time and try later. It worked for me today just fine now.

      The cabbie wasn't there. Two young kids answered the door and fed me some bs about they restored it bc the wanted to be able to contact me. The full story is on here somewhere. Basically my battery died that night. I kept checking ilocalis the next day and when they finally charged it and powered it up, I got the location then.
