MightyText: iMessage for Android
iMessage is one of the coolest thing happened in iOS 5. With it, you can send and receive unlimited text messages on your all iOS devices via Wi-Fi or 3G. If your Android user then sorry you won't have iMessage capability so I suggest you switch to iOS now :-) Ofcourse I am joking. No need to be bitter if your Android user since you can have an iMessage clone by installing MightyText. Let's discuss its features after the jump!

If iPhone 5 mockups Are True

iPhone 5 mockup
If the leaked schematics and mockups from this site is true then I am officially disappointed with the upcoming iPhone 5. I won't even bother going into the details of its new features because the design is plainly boring for me. I started using iPhone 3GS and then upgraded to iPhone 4. When the iPhone 4s was released, i thought twice before deciding to upgrade again because there were no enhancement in how it looks. Mobile phone overall appearance is a big factor for me when switching to newer model. Based on the recent iPhone 5 mockups, I don't like it. Although it has a bigger display, the design is the same with iPhone 4. I might change my mind in the future but if iPhone 5 was released today, sorry I wont buy it. Maybe it is just me. Your opinions are welcome. Drop a comment.

Apple Won The First Round By $1Billion Versus Android

1 comment
Jury from a San Jose court scored it in favor of Apple today. Sure $1B penalty for damages in patent infringement is litte more a jab than damaging blow for Samsung. But this win is more than money for Apple. For Apple, it is a start of a bigger battle against the japanese tech giant and other Android platform mobile companies. The win signifies that Apple can win this patent war agains anybody who they wanted to contest. Investors would now think twice in investing on these Android based technologies and probably would think wiser and diversify. One company aside from Apple will surely benefit from this victory is Microsoft. Unlike Android, Windows phone is far more like iOS and certainly not a target for Apple revenge.

This patent war between Apple and Samsung is far from over so keep tuning in.

New Facebook app for iOS Rewritten In Native Language

1 comment
Facebook has released a completely recoded app yesterday replacing the HTML5 approach that made the original Facebook app run on iOS and Android platform. With this release, Facebook had abandoned the design concept of "write once, run everywhere". The benefit? an enhanced and a lot faster app for iPhone and iPad. As for the other platforms, including Android, Blackberry and Windows phone, the HTML5 version will still be used. Changing it to native OS like this release for iOS is not impossible in the future.

 

Try the new Facebook app. Download it from the app center.

Security Flaw in iOS SMS

No comments
Jailbreak developer pod2g had found a security flaw on how iPhone handle SMS messages. It does not involve code execution but he consider it to be severe because of the things you can do with the flaw. In layman's term, when you write an SMS and press send, your phone translate your SMS to PDU (Protocol Description Unit) language and then transmit it across the network to its recipient. PDU is a set of standard language for SMS technology. If a hacker understands how to create raw PDU text format, he can create a nasty message and change the User Header so it would appear as if it coming from a person you know.

Call Me Maybe With My Disposable Mobile Number For iPhone

No comments
Unlike Carly Rae Jepsen in her popular song "Call Me Maybe" trying to say. I am one of majority people who preferred not to disclose their personal number to people they don't know or close to. But sometimes there are situations that you may have no choice but to give it anyway and later on regretting it. Luckily, there is an app that can get you out from the situation. You can provide a number without actually giving your own by using disposable mobile numbers with Burner app. How it works is well explained in here. For only $1.99, you'll have a fresh Burner number with 20 minutes voice call and 60 SMS. Watch demo video after the jump.

iPhone Jailbreak Tweak To Increase Battery Life

No comments
For the best technology ever invented for the past decade, iPhone's battery life sucks. It should have been a perfect tool if I don't have to charge it everyday. I know many people would agree with me on this one so methods that will help extend its battery usage are more than welcome. BattSaver is one app that I recently tried but requires a jailbroken iPhone. What it does is, it checks for the features of the iPhone that are draining its battery life and suppresses them. Features like WiFi and cellular connections. It has four (4) saving strategies.
