Instagram for iOS was updated yesterday with the ability to share videos from the camera roll and automatically straighten the photos taken directly from the application. As to the full list of features, you can take a look at it below:
Apple has released iOS 7 Beta 5 for the developers. As usual, this version has some interface changes as well as minor bug fixes and operating system tweaks. Let’s take a look at them.
Last month it was found out that very few users are ready to pay for iOS 7 app updates on apps they already owned. Most of them would prefer to stay on iOS 6, rather than to update to iOS 7 and pay again for the apps.
Let's have at what developers think.
Craig Hockenberry, developer at Iconfactory (Twitterrific):
Like many of my fellow developers, I am in the middle of an update of an app for iOS 7. As you’d expect, it’s a lot more work than previous versions of iOS. But results are stunning: both David Lanham and I have commented that our shipping version was “feeling old and clunky.”
While cranking along on the update, a couple of thoughts occurred to me: how many other developers were doing the same thing and were they going to commit fully to iOS 7? The depth and breadth of the changes in iOS 7 makes it difficult to support older versions of the OS.
According to the latest research held by ShareThis, iPhone turned out to be the most social device. What this means is that it is most frequently used to share interesting stuff through the social media. Can it be truth or this is simply another Apple’s marketing trick? Let’s find out.
I don’t use wallets. They take up too much space in my pocket. That is why I’ve been looking for a convenient and at the same time small wallet iPhone case for everyday use. And you know, looks like I’ve found it. It’s called Strap-E and here’s its mini-review.
Last Friday Rovio announced a new game. Well, personally I believe that won’t be something entirely new since this studio has only one product, which is truly famous and it’s called Angry Birds. Yes, I know about Amazing Alex and The Croods as well as about other apps created by Rovio, but come on, do you really believe they can be like Angry Birds called world’s game #1? Anyway, here’s what was shared on Twitter yesterday:
According to CNET, Microsoft has released another video to mock Apple's iPad. Such information was shared today on Twitter. What kind of video is that?
Twitter app for both OS X and iOS got the update recently. The new version can boast of a truly unique and noticeable feature – direct message syncing. What that means is that when you read a DM using official website or the Twitter clients for Mac OS X, iOS, Android, Windows Phone or whatever else platform, this message would be automatically marked as already read on any other device. Well, I’m new to Twitter and I’ve been using it for only about a week, but I do understand what a great feature the developers have embedded to the app. Every day I waste much time on scrolling through the messages I’ve already seen to reach the newer ones.
Photo and video landscape orientation is available on the updated Instagram. Additionally, front-facing cameras will now get more support.
Instagram allows you to share edited photos and videos with your family and friends. Various filter effects will help you improve the photos and make them spectacular. You can also follow your friends and enjoy an everyday update of their photo stream.
If you got tired of deleting odd or incorrect letters from your messages, sent from iPhone or iPod touch, then you might be interested in a new Cydia tweak released by iAmharic recently. It’s called Keyboard Control Pro and it changes the way you use your keyboard.
This tool is compatible with both iOS 5 and 6 and has a bunch of useful features:
Hacker p0sixninja (Joshua Hill) tweeted that he plans to create OpenJailbreak, a new repository of open source jailbreak components on Twitter earlier today.
Ok, I hate redsn0w, I hate sn0wbreeze, and I hate 6.1.3. I'm ready to get this #openjailbreak off the ground
Elaborating further he told:
Essentially it’s going to be a repository of open source jailbreak components that I created over the years. So much of my code has been hacked up and incorporated into other projects, it’s becoming very fragmented. There’s no central repository to maintain all this code, to allow other developers to submit patches or help layout a roadmap for what new features and abilities will be added in the future.
iOS 7 has been jailbroken. Popular iOS developer Ryan Petrich has posted a screenshot which appears to show Activator running on iOS 7.

System Version Too New
Activator has not been tested to work with this version of iOS. Some features may not work as designed.
Notably, this alert does not seem to be a UIAlert that could be generated from within a sandboxed application, suggesting that device may be jailbroken.
Well known iPhone hacker p0sixninja has teased the upcoming release of some 'amazing things' on Twitter that are bigger than a jailbreak.
Last night he tweeted:
I got a lot of amazing things coming to you all soon. think bigger than jailbreak
In March, p0sixninja revealed that he had found the exploits necessary to release a new jailbreak; however, as expected, he decided to hold those back for iOS 7 or iOS 7.1.
