    While the multitasking App Switcher is wonderfully easy to use, Apple never gave it support for landscape orientation for when you are in an application that wants you to have your iDevice sideways. This makes using the App Switcher awkward at times. A new free jailbreak tweak dubbed SwitcherLand by iOS developer BTPankow will give you a landscape orientation App Switcher if you want it.

    This isnít to say there has never been a tweak that allows landscape orientation ...

    First, we settled Heatgate. Now it looks like we can also resolve claims about battery charging issues with the new iPad.

    In recent days, reports have suggested that the new iPad inaccurately claims a full charge, often a full two hours before the device's battery is actually at 100%. On Tuesday, Apple VP Michal Tchao spoke with All Things D to set the record straight.

    As it turns out, Apple does allow the ...

    iMessage has always been bogged down to sending only messages or photo and video files. iOS developers Ryan Petrich and Nikos Lykousas have been collaborating to create a new jailbreak tweak duo, dubbed SendAny and ReceiveAny.

It is compatible with Messages for Mac as well as the iOS version. ReceiveAny is free, however SendAny will set you back $1.99 Ė both are currently available in the BigBoss repository.

    The tweak replaces the camera ...

    Following the release of the iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak, many rejoiced with the release of Spire, a simple Siri installer developed by iOS hackers Grant Paul and Ryan Petrich that could be used for installing Siri functionality on any iOS 5 iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.
