  • Three Awesome Cydia Sales You Won't Want to Miss Out On

    Still trying to decide what to install on your newly jailbroken A5 device?

    If you have recently jailbroken your iPhone 4S, then you are probably wondering what you should install on it. Chances are that either you got rid of your older iPhone to get it and you became rusty with jailbreaking since then, or you are completely new to the jailbreaking scene altogether. To help with that, we put together a list of useful free and paid jailbreak tweaks and applications that we know you'll just love. If you're continuing the search for that perfect application, however, then we will help you by pointing out some new sales going on in the Cydia store right now to celebrate the A5 jailbreak!

    1. CallBar - 50% Off

    The first sale that we know you'll love is with CallBar, a genius application that changes the way that you answer, decline, and manage phone calls on your iDevice. It is compatible with FaceTime, Phone, Skype, and Viber and works on iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. The recent update to version 1.0 brings with it a better-looking GUI (graphical user interface) and more settings to tinker with. CallBar puts a banner at the top of your screen that resembles the iOS 5 banners when you get an incoming phone call. Normally, when you get an incoming phone call, the phone application fills the whole screen asking you to accept or decline the call which is very obnoxious if you're playing a game or typing a message. CallBar is normally $3.99 in the BigBoss repo, but you can get it until this Wednesday (01/25/12) for just $1.99.



    2. PwnTunes - 50% Off

    This next sale is for you iTunes haters. If you have ever wanted to manage your iDevice content through drag and drop functionality instead of using iTunes to sync content back and forth, then you want PwnTunes. PwnTunes makes it so that you can use Finder or Windows Explorer to put content on your iDevice without ever opening iTunes. It makes it so that you can use more than one computer to manage your iDevice because normally when you connect to another computer, iTunes wants to erase your iDevice and sync it with the computer that you're using. With PwnTunes, you can combine media from two different computers without erasing anything. It makes owning an iDevice more convenient and it is updated to work with iOS 5 and runs on an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad. It comes with a free trial so that you can try before you buy. PwnTunes is normally $12.99 in the BigBoss repo, but you can get it until this Thursday (01/26/12) for just $6.99.



    3. iRealSMS 3.0 - 50% Off

    The last sale is for anyone who wants a more intuitive text messaging application. iRealSMS is a feature-packed text messaging client that replaces your Messages application; it also works with iOS 5's iMessage. It has a whole ton of features that you can't get with Apple's stock Messages application. It supports contact photos, status bar icons, quick reply, quick compose, email text forwarding, conversation sorting, text message reading, and much more. iRealSMS is one of the original text messaging expander applications ever made for the iPhone. iRealSMS has been so widely enjoyed that it even made it into a New York Times article on November 25, 2010. iRealSMS comes with an unlimited free trial so that you can try before you buy. iRealSMS is normally $12.99 in the BigBoss repo, but you can get it until this Thursday (01/26/12) for just $6.99.

      Weird, because mine places custom ringtones. Must be something else you installed.

      It worked fine for me on 4.X on 2 different iphone 4's. As soon as those were upgraded to 5.0 the custom ringtones stopped working. Nothing new was added to either phones after the upgrade, so I can't put my finger on what other installed app would be causing my issue.
      Now fast forward to a 4s I have the same issue. The developer has acknowledged the issue on twitter, but as of yet has not fixed it. I have seen many other posts about custom ringtones not working for others. Wonder what is different from your than mine...

      Oh wait, I set my custom ringtone through Unlimtones. I went to manage, highlighted the ringtone, and pressed the Check mark and I have custom ringtones.

      Well its kind of a standard thing when store or whom ever announced sale ends Thursday 1/26/2012 that it's implied as in Thursday is the last day it's on sale, otherwise should have said sale ends Wednesday. IMHO :/

      The developer is in a different time zone than you, so you can expect your timings to be quite off from his.
