Tweaks of the week: ControlF, QuickUnlock, and more

Cydia Home iPhone 6

Even if news of a jailbreak for iOS 8.3 has been floating around, we shouldn’t yell victory too soon. As far as I’m concerned, I won’t get excited until there is tangible evidence that this is indeed happening. In the meantime, we can all look at we can use right now, namely a bunch of tweaks that have recently been released on Cydia…. Read the rest of this post here

iOS 9 includes Markup feature to let you annotate email attachments

iOS 9 marup annotate

Similar to a feature that first made its way to the Mail app under OS X Yosemite, iOS 9 now includes Markup, a tool that lets you annotate email attachments, including image files as well as PDFs, effectively turning the Mail app into a more powerful one with a growing focus on productivity.

Just like its OS X counterpart, Markup for iOS 9 allows you to sketch, zoom, add text, and sign documents on the go. Absent from the list of annotations is the Shape button, which lets you easily insert squares, circles, etc.

Markup for iOS 9 works for both incoming or outgoing attachments, meaning that you can annotate either the attachments you receive, or those that you send. This seems to actually go hand in hand with another new iOS 9 feature that lets you attach documents from iCloud Drive…. Read the rest of this post here

A closer look at Apple Watch apps: PCalc, Notes, and Dispatch

App-Watch-Banner

I’m looking forward to the day when an iteration of the Elder Scrolls will come to iPad. Imagine strolling through Tamriel on your Retina display, engaging in Infinity Blade-style combat with man and beast. It’d be glorious. I’m not sure that day will ever come, but I’m anticipating it just the same. I’ll be happy when the latest version of iPad has the hardware to run such a game, regardless.

Instead of discussing my recently renewed obsession with Skyrim, we’re here to talk about some noteworthy Apple Watch apps that I’ve come across recently, so let us begin.

New Miiverse and Classic Dreamland Stages Available for Super Smash Bros.

New Classic Dreamland and Miiverse stages are now available to download for Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS /Wii U,

Dreamland is based on the first Dreamland stage from the original Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 64. It is available for Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS /Wii U for $1.99, or $2.99 for both game versions.

The free Miiverse stage features Miiverse posts created by players. “During matches while connected to the Internet, players will see Miiverse posts appear that cheer specific fighters on from the background,” according to a press release. “These messages will be pulled from individual Miiverse communities that just opened for each Super Smash Bros. character.”

Tourney Update Coming to Super Smash Bros. for Free

Tourney mode is finally coming to Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS as a free update this August. Tourneys come in two flavors: Community Tourneys, and Tourneys.

“Community Tourneys let players compete for the highest points in a certain amount of time,” Nintendo explained, “while regular Tourneys have a specific set of rules and only happen at select times.”

Perhaps this will factor into this year’s (or future years’) Nintendo World Championship.

Earlier today, Nintendo unveiled YouTube replay uploads, and revealed that every Super Smash Bros. character would get an Amiibo figurine, in addition to Lucas, Ryu, and Roy joining the roster today for various prices.
