If you spend a good amount of time on Cydia searching for tweaks, then you will certainly know that there is a hidden treasure trove just waiting to be found and downloaded.  While popular tweaks such as Auxo and Zephyr are highlighted, there are obscure tweaks that usually receive little to no praise from the jailbreak community.

It is my pleasure to introduce a new iFans series: “Unmentioned: The Best Tweaks of Cydia.” In this new series of articles, I will attempt to unearth and highlight the hidden gems of Cydia.  These posts will hopefully stir up discussion over certain jailbreak tweaks that interest you, and stimulate members to try tweaks that seem worthy.

Live From CES 2013: Day One, From 32,000 Feet

CES 2013It’s finally here. Today is the big day that the annual Consumer Electronics Show — the largest of its type — kicks off in Las Vegas at 10 AM Pacific. While yesterday provided a sneak peek at what you’ll see during the show, thanks to some pre-show coverage, today is when the true excitement begins. And you’ll see it all unfold live on iFans, as I’m en route to the show as we speak. I’m typing this from 32,000 feet in the air, in fact.

If you’re unfamiliar with what CES has to offer, it is a large trade show within the Las Vegas Convention Center where new gadgets and other lifestyle accessories are shown off. The event lasts four days, today through Friday, and consists of both large companies like Samsung and Panasonic and smaller companies like Corning — set to debut its new Gorilla Glass 3 — and accessory maker Griffin.

The focus of CES coverage on iFans will be tailored towards the smaller new gadgets and accessories that companies are debuting, especially those that relate to Apple products. A lot of time will be spent in the iLounge Pavilion, which is essentially the unofficial Apple headquarters at the show. To deliver the best content, I will be attending the show by day and preparing comprehensive reports by afternoon. You’ll hear from me next later today.

Post Your iOS Screenshots and Wallpapers

iFans Wallpapers

iFans has reorganized its screenshot and wallpaper threads within the discussion forums to better suit the increasing number of iOS devices that have been released in the last few years. For starters, there is a designated iOS screenshots thread for all iPhone, iPad or iPod touch screen captures. In this thread, feel free to post your home screen, lock screen or other screenshots pertaining to iOS software itself, regardless of which device you have.

As for posting wallpapers, there are now official threads to do so based on the device you have. If you have a new iPhone 5 or fifth-generation iPod touch, post your 4-inch wallpapers in the official thread for those two devices. If your device is an iPhone 4S, fourth-generation iPod touch or older, try posting in the older iPhone wallpapers thread or older iPod touch wallpapers thread instead. Last, there are two threads for iPad wallpapers and iPad mini wallpapers.
