The 3D Touch is a great addition to the iPhone family and the more you use it, the more you will like it. One of the biggest advantaqges of 3D Touch is the ability to access options available inside applications right from the home screen with the help of Quick Actions. Force press application icons and you can launch specific sections, tabs or features directly from the home screen, and the best part is that 3d Touch support is being extended to non-native apps as well. Quite convenient, is it not?

The Quick Actions menus though add to your convenience, the colour scheme isn’t that appealing. But now you can customise that as well. All you need is a jailbroken iPhone 6S and a tweak named 3DColorChanger.

3dColorChanger Cydia Tweak iOS 9 (1)

3DColorChanger lets you add a custom tint to the Quick Actions menus. You can either select a single colour scheme or let the tweak pick the colour from the app’s icon. Additionally, you can change the colour of the labels and also add a border to the pop-up menus.

How To Use 3DColorChanger

Launch Cydia, let it fetch the latest tweaks, search ‘3dcolorchanger’ and install it. Perform a respring and navigate to Settings > 3DColorChanger. From there, either manually pick the colours for the label and background or enable the auto colour picker. The slider provided below the aforementioned sections is to be used to adjust the thickness of the border, if you opt to have it. Once the changes have been made, simply exit Settings (no need to perform a respring) and try the new Quick Actions.

Do you ever put your iPhone on charging at a public place or your work place while you are conversing with friends, family or colleagues? Even though you are engaged in that very conversation, what really engrosses your mind is the fear of not finding the device where you left it to charge. It does happen once in while where people end up losing their devices just because they left it unattended at a public place/gathering or work place only to charge the battery.

Users who have their Apple device jailbroken will now be less worried should an aforementioned situation arise. A new tweak named No2Theft promises to safeguard your iPhone from theft. However, the condition is that it should be put on charging. The user adds up to three trusted WiFi networks which if not connected to while charging, and the cable is pulled out, will raise a siren.

With the siren activated, the volume keys will be disabled and the owner will have to use his/her fingerprint or a custom pin in order to authenticate and deactivate the siren. Having said that, the siren can easily be deactivated if the device is turned off or a force shutdown is performed.

The tweak is hosted on the BigBoss repo and users will have to shed $0.99 to purchase it. It supports iOS 7, 8 and 9.

For as long as I can remember, Music is considered to be one of the best means of entertainment, and in the modern times it has only become better. Talking in context of the products offered by Apple, namely the iPhone, iPod and iPad, they offer one of the best music experiences and many of you will agree to it.

iOS 8 onwards, Apple has made significant improvements in the feel and functionality aspect of its native Music app and is constantly working on making it better. Now, users who are still on iOS 9 and have their iPhone or iPod Touch jailbroken can enhance the iOS music experience with the help of Playtopia. It is one of the latest tweaks which emphasises on a clean, tiny and efficient experience when using the Music app.

Playtopia adds a small floating music player, as an overlay on the screen, with a few controls such as play/pause, next and previous. Alongside, you can also switch the theme of the player to day or night, and can also switch to a ‘tiny’ player mode. The tweak is priced at $2.99 and only supports iPhone and iPod Touch for now. iPad support will be added soon.



How To Use Playtopia

Once you have installed the tweak, navigate to Settings > Playtopia and enable it. There is also a feature to hide the player in all or specific apps which you can select manually. Additionally, there is a feature wherein the widget/player can be flicked towards either edge of the screen and it partially hides itself while playing/pausing the music, depending on whether you have enabled the feature or not.

Now that you have enabled the feature, launch the Music app and play a song. As soon as you do so, Playtopia will be enabled. Tapping on the widget’s left top corner will open the current song’s page in the Music app while tapping the right top corner will replace the song progress bar with the volume bar. Tapping the little crescent-moon icon will toggle between the light and dark theme.


Lastly, there is also a ‘tiny’ player mode which can be switched to using the little round button placed right above the theme(crescent-moon) button. Enabling it will shrink the player to a round widget with the progress scrubber around it and a play/pause button in the centre. To exit the tiny mode, simply double tap the little widget.

Users planning to try Playtopia should also consider other tweaks such as Aria, Clex 2 and MiniPlayer.

WhatsApp is a brilliant means of connecting with people. You only have to have the cellphone number of the person you want to get in touch with and an active internet connection, which could either be Wi-Fi or 3G/4G. Add the cellphone number as a contact and you are all set to converse with the respective person over WhatsApp.

But don’t you think this convenience can cost many a user their peace of mind? There are a great number of people out there ready to annoy you with messages that are absolutely unwanted. They could either be a part of a WhatsApp group or a one-on-one conversation, or maybe both. Now, the notifications for group conversations can be easily muted but the same is not possible for one-on-one chats. Well, now it is possible.

WA ShutUp is a new tweak available on Cydia that allows muting all sorts of WhatsApp conversations; private and group. WA ShutUp does not come for free and one has to shed $0.99 for it. The tweak supports both iOS 7 and iOS 8.

After a bunch of rumours on LG’s next generation Android smartphone, the South Korean giant has finally confirmed what the new device will look like, at least from the back. In the latest posts on LG’s Facebook and Google+ pages it has confirmed the attire of the yet-to-be-unveiled LG G4.

In its posts LG says the following: ‘Always have authentic luxury in hand. The brand new LG G4 with vegetable-tanned leather cover.
See the great, feel the great.’


This gives away one of the most exciting bits about the G4, that it will feature a vegetable-tanned leather back which not only looks brilliant but would also feel great in hand. The leather back will have a seam running along the length featuring contrast stitching, along with a new camera shape.

Recollecting all that we have heard about the LG G4 as of yet, it will come with a 16 MP primary shooter with OIS and a F1.8 lens, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 chip instead of the newer Snapdragon 810 chip, a 5.5-inch 2560x1440 pixel Quad High Definition display, a micro SD card slot, a 8.9 mm thick shell and a 3000mAh-ish battery. Of course this is in addition to the vegetable-tanned leather back that has been confirmed last night.

LG G4 Leather Back

With the speculated adoption of a cheaper, Qualcomm 808 chip, it would be interesting to see how LG prices its latest flagship and how well it optimises the chip to make the G4 perform as good as the competition. Fans, there is a lot to look forward to. So stay tuned.
