IntelliscreenX alone makes jailbreaking iOS 5 worthwhile

Of all the new tweaks coming out for iOS 5, IntelliscreenX is by far the best of them. Apple’s introduction of the Notification Center has revitalized the iPhone aging notification center and provided a way to organize all the various notifications that one receives during the day. However, like most things in life, it can always be a little better.

With this tweak, the iOS 5 Notification Center can be added to the Lockscreen, and you will not only be able to view the Notification Center from the lockscreen on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad, but also dramatically extend the functionality of the Notification Center by adding the following features:

  • Collapsible Sections
  • QuickSettings Widget (frequently used functions such as airplane mode and brightness controller)
  • Top Shelf (A configurable bar that appears above notifications)
  • View Full Emails, Calendar, and receive RSS, Facebook and Twitter updates
  • Much more…

iPhone Jailbreak App MobileNotifier Embarrasses Apple’s Notifications

MobileNotifier for jailbroken iPhone

Notifications on iOS are one of the operating system’s weakpoints. Peter Hajas’ MobileNotifier hack finally brings them into the modern era.

If you’re like me, you get very tired of having a Twitter or e-mail alert pop up in the middle of what you’re doing and forcing you to respond. Even worse, pulling your iDevice off the nightstand in the morning to be greeted by a stack of alerts which can only be viewed in order, and dismissed one by one. MobileNotifier is an jailbreak hack for the iPhone and iPod Touch that is so good, it should have come from Apple.

The iPad 2 jailbreak – How necessary is it?

I think anyone would be hard pressed to claim that the iPad 2 is not a solid tablet. I’ve had mine for a few weeks now and I find it noticeably faster and better than the original iPad. However, one thing the iPad 2 lacks is a jailbreak. Sure, all the big hackers are working on the jailbreak but so far no one has succeeded.

The funny thing is, though, I’m really not missing it. Continue reading
