AppHeads
sharedRoutine | Tweak | $ 4.99

IMG_6986.PNG

It isn't everyday when someone repurposes the Facebook chat heads design... It's actually more like every other day. Many of them end up being terrible implementations that should never seen the light of day while others actually start off good, if not great, concepts. AppHeads is one such tweak. It takes the Facebook chat head UI and incorporates it into multitasking. It could definitely be much more though.

Features

AppHeads offers users the ability to replace their multitasking system with a set of AppHeads that sit on either side of the screen. Apps can quickly be quit by dragging down to the bottom of the screen. Additionally, AppHeads also features a live-view which allows users to view the live, usable app that they select in the center of the screen in a window. Configurations on how things are done are fully customizable in the app. Additionally, there are also...

Featured apps in the app store are red for AIDS awareness. Until Dec 7th, apps will be red, and devs will donate their proceeds to the AIDS Global Fund.

That's not a good way to raise money for charity. Nobody wants a red app version. Sales will go down, and less money will be collected than if devs had just kept their app the normal color and still donated the money. Seriously.

Update!

Zagg and iFrogz (owned by Zagg) have been added to the roundup. Both cases are good cases, the orbit is a dual-layer plastic and silicone bumper that comes with an InvisibleShield Glass screen protector while the iFrogz Cacoon is a matted case with a less glaring design. They can be found in the Bumper Cases and Transitional Cases respectively!

This is the iFans.com iPhone 6 case roundup. Here, we will feature up to 3 new cases each week (until I run out of cases), except for the first week when an initial batch will be featured. All featured cases will be shown in the second post of this thread.

SilverStone | Headphone Stand | $ 60.00

Banner.jpg

What do you do with your headphones when they aren’t in use? Many people simply toss them onto their desk/bed. Others will put them in their respective case or pouch. But for those headphones that look great and should be displayed, a headphone stand is a must. Stands vary in price from really cheap to really expensive. The SilverStone EBA01 is an aluminum stand that comes in at the lower price bracket.

Design

Silver aluminum finishes are what SilverStone’s Ensemble series is all about when it comes to design. Though the rest of the Ensemble series utilizes a brushed aluminum finish, the EBA01 headphone stand uses a beautiful sandblasted finish to the aluminum that sparkles in the light. The sandblasting is stronger on the top of the stand to increase friction allowing headphones to stay in place easier. The finish gives it a rougher surface as a whole while a single, smooth, and circular cut around...

Both the iPhone and iPad keynotes have come and passed, and twice the iPod touch failed to be mentioned. With the current generation media player being introduced more than two years ago, fans were disappointed that there was no planned update to the iPod touch product line.

But we can still dream. What if Apple did release a new generation of iPod touch, what would it be like? Here are my thoughts about this hypothetical situation. I'll try to be as realistic as possible based on what Apple would do, rather than idealistically adding every feature requested. The attached photos are photoshopped versions of an iPhone 6, to match the iPod touch hardware style.

Apple has always tried to match the iPod touch's general design and physical appearance to the iPhone of its current generation. With the 6th generation iPod touch, it's likely to be based upon the iPhone 6 design, with curved front glass and the more elegant...

MEElectronics | In-Ear Monitor | $ 9.99

Banner.jpg

A long time ago, MEElectronics began their journey in the headphone world with a number of IEMs. One of their main bang-for-the-buck IEMs they released was called the M9. It has since gone though a few revisions, though there are many people who are fans of the original sound. With that demand, MEE decided to bring back the M9, the M9 Classic is the classic from way back in the day for an unbelievably cheap price.

Specifications

Driver: 9mm Dynamic
Frequency Response: 20 Hz – 20 kHz
Impedance: 16 ohms
Sensitivity: 95 +/- 3 dB

The title says it all. State your favorite iOS 8 tweak(s) and why. That said, make sure it supports iOS 8 ;) I'll start with my top 3:
  • Activator for multitouch gestures for multitasking and hard music controls.
  • DockShift to get rid of the ugly overly blurred dock that iOS 7+ has.
  • LittleBrother for landscape support for a majority of apps.
What are your top 3?

One of the features that sets the iPhone 6 Plus apart from its little brother the iPhone 6 is the ability to display the Home Screen in landscape orientation as well as iPad-like split screen capabilities for stock apps. With the release of LittleBrother on the Cydia Store, Ryan Petrich allows iPhone 6 users to do just that.

LittleBrother works on 4-inch display devices, too.

What makes LittleBrother different to other SpringBoard rotation tweaks is that it does not use a custom display layout, but instead draws from the native display framework of iOS 8 itself. This means that apps will all display naturally in the exact same way as it would on an iPhone 6 Plus, and the keyboard will also display the extra function buttons that iPhone 6 Plus users have. The tweak forces the system to output everything to the iPhone 6 Plus size, scaled down to the physical display of the device. As a result, UI elements such as icons and...
