    Earlier in the week, we showed you MiniBanners, a free jailbreak tweak by iOS developer Rudolf Lichtner that displays iOS notifications in smaller notification popups that take up less screen space than Apple’s stock banner system. The banners are very similar to that of the growl-like notification pop-ups. Today, we are showing you the upgraded version of MiniBanners, known as MiniBanners Pro. The tweak will be live soon in the ModMyi repository for $1.79 and it does a lot more than the free version did.

    When you download applications from the App Store in iOS, you are brought to the home screen where you will find the application you were downloading on the home screen. The icon will be darkened and a download indicator bar appears, showing the download and install progress of the application in real time. The application download indicator bar is usually preferred, but apparently not by everyone.

    We’ve seen jailbreak ...

    With more amazing apps and innovative accessories released each day, the iPhone has become a serious photography tool. People are nuts about iPhonography. And why not? It's the camera that's always with you. And always connected. Shoot, edit, share... done. Lotsa megapixels, convenient and socially connected - what more could you ask?

    While it can mostly replace a point-and-shoot, the 4 / 4S camera could use a little more versatility. Interchangeable lenses, better stability and protection to list a few.

    You'd like to protect it and outfit it for better photography - the problem is, you need a bunch of products that are not designed to work together. Most lenses stick on with adhesive or magnets and they're incompatible with protective cases.

    So... need a case. And ...

    The five locations include the original positioning at the bottom of the application icon, the top of the application ...

    Wi-Fi options in iOS are limited compared to what you can do on your personal computer. From a personal computer you can not only join and disconnect from Wi-Fi networks, but also view a history of every Wi-Fi network you've ever been on and information about those networks. Unfortunately the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad never came with this additional feature, but a new jailbreak tweak dubbed NetworkKnowledge by iOS developer rms aims to give you a little extra control.
