GPower adds restart and respring functionality [Cydia]





GPower is a nice utility available in Cydia. With GPower we have the shut-off screen with 3 different operations, instead of the classic single switch off slide:

gpower1 gpower2

As you can see, hold down the button on / off and you'll see two additional slides: one in green (for the restart) and another in gray (for respring). Tweak is localized in English only and can be found in Cydia, category "System", repository BigBoss.

Pizza Hut app for iPhone [Video]



Pizza Hut has just released a new iPhone app, one that lets you order food as well as play a racing game. This app does what you'd expect it to do — order pizza and wings — while also making full use of the iPhone's functionality. When you order wings, for example, you need to shake your phone to get the wings covered in sauce. Cool?

iphonemultitasking

In order to understand the true power of the new iPhone 3GS let's do some tests on the new Apple device using the Backgrounder. You have about 150MB of RAM free, so you can open several applications and games at the same time and get good results. Here's the list:

Applications

  • Weathereye
  • Random Facts
  • Chalky
  • Google Apps
  • Phone
  • Mail

Games

  • Assassin's Creed
  • Metal Gear Solid Touch
  • Real Racing

Games listed above are among those that require a lot of resources. However, the device continued to function without major delays. Here is a video demonstration:

Navigon MobileNavigator for Free



navigon navigon2 navigon3

Navigon has just released free version of their navigation application. Navigon MobileNavigator Lite includes the same range of functions as the full version, although no active route guidance with GPS support is available. In other words you have the maps and you can just browse without Turn-by-turn directions.

In US AppStore we were able to find and download Navigon MobileNavigator Lite North America. There are many different other apps in different AppStores. For example there is MobileNavigator British Isles in UK AppStore. Unfortunately there is no free Europe in one app.

Who still has not tested the Navigon can do it now. Good download.

The app is free, here are couple AppStore links:.

  • MobileNavigator Lite North America link
  • MobileNavigator British Isles Lite link

YXFlash: player for Xvid, DivX, Flash and more



yxflashicon

YXFlash is a new application that is available in Cydia and includes the codecs to display Xvid / DivX video files . We will not longer need to convert movies into a format supported by Apple. The converted videos do play a bit smoother due to hardware acceleration, but xvid videos are watchable, at least the ones I tested. The player also plays flash content if you have downloaded flash flv videos to your device. It is not a web based flash player, this does not play flash videos embedded on websites. In order to add the videos just upload them using iFunBox or iPhone Browser.

Here is the complete list of formats supported by the complete version:

  • Flash Video -> .flv
  • Mpeg4, H.264
  • Windows Media Video (.wmv)
  • Xvid/DivX (.avi)
  • MP4, MP3, AAC and Windows Media Audio

The free version offers support only for MP3 and DivX. You can download the application via Cydia in the BigBoss repository. The full version costs around $10.

New Version of Google Mobile iPhone App Features Added "Ninja"



g

We don't have an explanation for this, but the new version of the Google Mobile App for iPhone/iPod Touch lists some pretty wacky improvements, notably "Longer Version Number" and "Ninja." This screen can be seen in the "Update Details" section of the app. We hope some fun-loving Google employee didn't just get fired for his ninja-humor-based initiative.

There are also "Terminal", "Game", "VRecord", "Blocks" and others.

Wolfenstein [Games, Cydia]



The original Wolfenstein is now available for free for the iPhone. You need to jailbreak your phone to get in on the fun. The game is truly a classic. This is a first-person shooter in which we should govern our character among many doors and endless mazes. The controls are "fairly" good, based solely on the touch screen.

Wolf3D avaliable from Cydia, repository ZodTTD.
