Veency: remote control your iPhone [Cydia]



This application is developed by Jay Freeman, the creator of the Cydia. Veency is a free app that allows iPhone owners to remotely control their iPhone from PC or Mac desktop via a VNC client.

Here are some of the features:

  • Launch applications on your iPhone
  • Reply to emails, text messages, and more
  • Rearrange icons
  • Lock/Unlock your iPhone
  • Browse through Photos and Contacts

Of course you cannot do two finger gestures with this app. All other actions can be done with the click of your mouse. The only area in which Veency fails tragically at is when opening any video recording application on the iPhone.

This application is avaliable for jailbreaked iPhones via Cydia installer.

Be sure to restart your iPhone after installing Veency and connect to the server using a Wi-Fi connection. We recommend using UltraVNC or TightVNC to connect your Windows desktop. If you're using a Mac, we recommend Chicken VNC.

Here is a video demonstration:

Remote access software or remote desktop software is software that allows you to access a remote computer.

The future of BossPrefs



Many users of jailbreaked iPhones use application called BossPrefs. The developer of this app is creating a new one. The new application will be called SBSettings.

The toggles drop down when you swipe along the status bar. It is very fast and can be used while in any app without exiting the app. Suppose you are in Safari but realize your 3g is not yet enabled. Just swipe the statusbar and toggle 3g, than resume in Safari where you left off. The advantage is there is no need to exit Safari and load settings or bossprefs.

The look and feel of this new app will be something like this:
