By: Marawan Alwaraki, February 20, 2013
When you open up the app store it is really common that you just download a lot of apps, or perhaps you are updating apps you already have downloaded. When your iOS device- whether it's an iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad- is downloading many apps things can get messy. You get a lot of downloaded apps scattered everywhere and you scroll between apps that you can use and others that are still being downloaded. If you don't like to have both downloaded apps and downloading apps together then a free tweak on Cydia is ready to help.

The tweak is called Download to Newsstand. It lets your Newsstand folder show all apps that are currently being downloaded to your iOS device. So the apps will not be visible on your home screen unless it has finished downloading.

Run Cydia in the background

By: Marawan Alwaraki, February 9, 2013

After jailbreaking your iOS device you may have realized that Cydia does not run in the background. It may show up in the multitasking switcher, but it's not actually running in the background. When you launch Cydia you'll realize it loads up every single time. This is not the case with most apps nowadays which do in fact run in the background.

The reason Cydia doesn't do that is because Cydia takes up quite a bit of memory. This used to be an issue on older devices, and may still be. However, if you have a new iOS device then you may want to follow this tutorial so that you can background Cydia. The instructions are really simple.

Edge EX- grab it while it's free!

By: Marawan Alwaraki, February 2, 2013
Today the deal of the day for AppGratis(an app that is similar to FreeAppADay) was called Edge EX. I decided to give the game a go and download it. But when I took a look at the screenshot I was predicting a minecraft like game and I was hoping that it wasn't. Thankful it wasn't, but also thankfully I downloaded it. I can safely guarantee that Edge EX will be my next addiction game, until someone beats my score in Temple Run 2 (10 million).
