  • Cydia Gets a Sweet Plug in the Washington Post

    Although it seems like there's already an iPhone app for almost any practical (or impractical) purpose imaginable, the App Store has a penchant for disallowing many proposed apps from reaching the holy grail that is their digital storefront.

    As we know, for all the apps that Apple doesn't want us to have, there is Cydia. And even though the existence of Cydia isn't news to us, it was probably news to many this morning when the Washington Post gave a surprising mainstream plug for the third party App Store alternative.

    The piece was picked up from Mike Keller of PC World and is very pro-jailbreaking. Great plugs for three popular taboo apps:

    : an app that enables users to automatically block calls from those placed on your personal blacklist.

    : a true blessing of an app that lets us download YouTube videos to our mobile device to watch in any coverage dead zone

    : an app that lets us jailbreakers install personally created themes or download any of hundreds to choose from through Cydia.

      This will sure increase jailbreaking or atleast open people's mind, and see that apple lies when they say "jailbreaking" itself messes up the phone.

      Also, the more people know about jailbreaking, the less likely it is for apple to release future firmware updates that permanently crash jailbroken phones(I'm sure they've contemplated about that).

      I remember that the first real exposure of a Jailbroken iPhone was on SNL or MAD TV. There is a skit about the iPhone and you could clearly see "Installer", RIP by the way, on the home screen.

      Viva La Jailbreaks!!!
