VideoPane Jailbreak Tweak Brings Samsung's Pop Up Play To For iPhone And iPad

VideoPane Jailbreak Tweak Brings Samsung's Pop Up Play Now For iOS

With Galaxy S3, Samsung introduced a new and exciting feature that is pop up play. Pop up play allows a user to type a text or read an email while playing the video on the screen. This feature of popping up of the video in an adjustable way on the screen was exciting and new as no one every thought about a feature like this until Samsung.

iOS is always behind when it comes to adding cool new features. However, if you jailbreak you device, you can download and install a lot of new tweaks that are available in the Cydia store. Some free and some paid but the wide range of app and tweaks that you can find after jailbreaking a device will make you play with your device every day.

Today, a popular jailbreak community contributor Ryan Petrich has released a new tweak that does exactly the same that which Samsung's pop up play does. Video pane tweak for iPhone and iPad allows you to multitask video while you are working on something else. You can watch the video and re-size it to continue with what you are doing allowing you to not just do your work but also watch the video that is being played at the same time.

Video Pane is an application/tweak for jailbroken iPhones and iPads that allows detaching of videos from the player, be it YouTube or native iOS player or any 3rd party player like VLC and float the video on the screen while you can work on your device or do facebooking or tweeting. Video pane is a must have tweak for all iOS users. Video pane currently supports, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4 and iPod touch 4G and 5G.  You can purchase video pane from cydia store for a nominal price of $1.99

Here's a video of the tweak in action

iSleepWell Automatically Switches Into Airplane Mode When Its Placed Face Down

iOS Tweak To Automatically Switch Your iPhone Into Airplane Mode

Developer xvolks is not new to jailbreak and cydia tweaks. His contribution to Corona jailbreak is widely appreciated. There used to be some issue with the jailbreak that disabled iBooks in jailbroken iOS devices. Xvolks patch made iBooks work on iOS deivices. His work on iBooks can be seen here.

cydia tweak iSleepwell for iPhone

iSleepWell is a tweak by Xvolks that has just hit Cydia and brings with it a feature set that attempts to give the user a good night sleep. The application uses a simple method of deactivating all radios, in other words, setting Airplane mode to on through a simple detection routine.


iSleepWell is useful to turn airplane mode ON when going to bed (for example) by just putting your iDevice beside you on the screen side. It detects that position and turns off all radios. You can sleep without being disturb by unsolicited calls and you are not bombarded by negative waves. Many parameters can be changed. iOS devices comes built in with a number of hardware sensors that can detect the orientation of the phone, allowing certain things to happen for each state it may be in. iSleepWell uses this hardware capability and turns off all radios when the device is placed screen down on a surface.

cydia app review iSleepwell

Features Of iSleepWell:

Enabled : if ON (default), iSleepWell will detect the sleep position and react as expected. If OFF, it does nearly nothing except waiting to go ON.

Play Sound : when the airplane mode is about to be triggered the device says Airplane mode enabled. This let you put it on the right side to prevent the mode change.
When you take back the device in your hand, the device says Back to normal.
If OFF, no sound is played.

Vibrate : when airplane mode is actually changed, the device vibrates if ON.

Scan interval : iSleepWell polls the accelerometer state each X seconds : 5 and 10 are good choices.

Screen down : by default you have to put the device on the screen to trigger the airplane mode. you can change that behavior by setting this switch to OFF. Useful to test and see the plane too...

Active on sleep mode : when you let your device without using it at all, it goes to suspend state and the applications receive no CPU time from iOS. This switch set to ON awakes to device every 15 minutes to check if the position have changed. So turning your device may not trigger the airplane mode right now if it is in hibernation. This will consume very few battery.
You can set it to OFF if you fear for your battery, but I did not notice significant change.

Disable on manual change : if you set Airplane mode by yourself (when you are aboard a plane ;)), iSleepWell will detect this state and will disable itself until you reenables the radios by yourself.
Setting this to OFF, will let iSleepWell to reenable the radios. It's safer to let this to ON.

Prevent from running : if set to ON, iSleepWell will exit completely and will be unable to do anything. The only ways to relaunch it is to respring or reboot the device after putting this toggle to OFF.

You can get iSleepWell from the Cydia Store for $0.99.

iPhone Dev Team Talks About iOS 5.1 Jailbreak and iPad 3

   iPhone Dev Team Talks About iOS 5.1 Jailbreak And iPad 3

Dev-Team made a post on their blog talking about the New iPad fever and how apple fans are lining up to get the first look of the new iPad. Ironic but Dev-Team calls the New iPad as iPad 3. Hmm, interesting. Apart from the iPad fever, Dev-Team also mentioned that the jailbreak which worked on iPad 2 will also work on the new iPad 3. He has also mentioned that i0n1c has successfully jailbreaked his iPad 2 on iOS 5.1. Apparently there is one more jailbreak that is being worked on. This is what the Blog says:

  • We can confirm that the method used to jailbreak the iPad2 4 months ago (before corona) still works even in 5.1. That means we’ll at least be able to get our foot in the door to get the required kernel dumps on the iPad3. That’s an important step, but by no means is it the end of the story.
  • Those of you following @i0n1c may have noticed he’s already tweeted pictures of his iPad2 jailbroken at 5.1. As far as we know, he’s using a method completely unrelated to the one mentioned above. That would be great news!
  • We’ve also seen bits and pieces of an entirely different jailbreak method being investigated by someone close to the Cydia repo scene.

So there are 3 methods of jailbreak under process and there is one more on which @pod2g is working on. The bottom line for the iPad users is not to update their new iPad beyond 5.1 or whatever iOS it comes shipped with.

Seems like the jailbreak for iOS 5.1 will be a nightmare for Apple..

When it comes to camera quality, this is what Apple has to say about the new iPad. According to apple, megapixels matter but the quality of a photo is determined by other things along with the mega pixels like the camera’s optics, image signal processor.

With an ƒ/2.4 aperture and a five-element lens, iSight captures light efficiently to produce a sharper overall image. And the hybrid infrared filter which is typically reserved for expensive SLR cameras keeps out harmful IR light for more accurate, uniform colors. So, if you have the new iPad you'll have some features of SLRs.
