Apple has announced the date for it’s 2009 World Wide Developer Conference: June 8-12.
Last year, Steve Jobs’ Keynote at WWDC gave us an update on iPhone 2.0, the introduction of MobileMe, and the unveiling of the iPhone 3G. What will they have for us this year? More iPhone 3.0 no doubt. iPhone gen 3? Snow Leopard? Mac Netbook?

CyDelete, is a very small utility (only 10kb) that gives makes it possible to remove (uninstall) applications from Cydia just like those from AppStore. Everything that we have to do is click an icon on the springboard, so that they begin to vibrate. Than just hit (X) on application and confirm the deletion.
CyDelete is available in category Tweaks in Cydia.
In reality G-Map was a true offline browser, and the last update had also added the voice features combined with turn-by-turn directions. All these additions surprised us, because they violated the contract terms of SDK. About 10 days ago, we wrote that G-Map app had suddenly been removed from App Store.
The developers, on the official site, continue to exhibit the same banner which claim G-Map will be back in AppStore, and that the application was removed only because of a major upgrade. This is a very strange this thing, because usually you update applications directly, without any need to first be removed.
Clippy is an iPhone addition from Cydia for copy/paste functionality. It was updated to version 0.97-2. The main bug that was fixes is a crash of different applications such as Notes, Safari, Mail and others where the animation was drawn. New version also added a language pack, improved the animation of the menu, full support for selecting editable text in web views, themes support and a lot more.
Avaliable via Cydia for jailbreaked iPhones.
Full changelog for 0.97 updates:
There are many iPhone applications, that alow you to play drums (f.e. real drums). However you should take a look at Kanon Drums, application from japanese developers. This app is fantastic. It works really good, you can play along with some famous riffs.
DHowett is the developer who is working on a new Tweak called "Removal". This is an extension of MobileSubstrate that will allow the easy removal of Cydia applications through "Wiggling Icons" and the (X), just like the App Store applications. Removal will also remove applications installed manually in the directory "/ Applications /".
A new version of Cydia is comming soon. Here are couple words from the Saurik's letter:
The first thing is the name "Cydia Store". So far it is called "Cydia Installer". This could mean that the change concerns the addition of new sections in which the applications will be placed on payment. There will be an implementation of a new system of voting and feedback, similar to th eone in AppStore.
Surely you remember the video that showed you a few days ago the next version of Stack. The day after the developer anounced that he would stop developing free applications. Now he changed his mind. So the work on version 2.2 of Stack is continuing and this application will appear in Cydia soon. One more important thing is that once application is released, it will probably remain available forever.
