There are two ways to write a pebble app, use c code and release to the Pebble store, or as I have done with NewsSnacker, write in JavaScript and release to the Pebble app store.  They only problem is Apple has not released an update to allow iOS users to install apps written in JavaScript.  … Read More

The disastrous iOS 8.0.1 update that curtailed users’ cellular signals and created other bugs earlier this week may have a connection to another major glitch in recent history: the shaky rollout of Apple Maps . The company said less than 40,000 users downloaded iOS 8.0.1 before it was pulled over an hour after its release… Read More

I got this via email and thought I would share.  Looks cool enough.  Basically local navigation on your Pebble.  Right now, its iPhone only; I do not know if there will be an Android app (I asked) but I will update this post when I find out. Where To? 7.0: iPhone local search app completely… Read More

This has been a rough few days for Apple.  A ‘goto fail’ hole appeared in the OS that lets people defect a security server key which lets them do .. well not sure.  From a quick read of the code, seems like if you can get a false handshake to work then depending on the… Read More

Funny thing, I have been using the iphone since day 1. I have been jailbreaking for almost as long.  However, once the iphone 5 and my first view of iOS7 surfaced, I started to question if I wanted to keep playing this cat and mouse game of jailbreaking, reinstalling everything, losing some functionally because the… Read More

I have been using the iphone 4 for a long time now.  It works well.  I had it jailbroken and customized to do what I want. Never did update to the iPhone 4S and also skipped out on the five because I was too invested in the old docking station.  So much so, I had… Read More

Augmented Reality (AR) has been around for a long time, but it has yet to really find a local role in a major vender.  That has changed.  IKEA has a new app that work on both iOS and Android that will allow you check out various IKEA furniture as it would look in your place.… Read More

Today Pebble released update 1.2.   So far, the only thing I have noticed is Gmail support.  But that is huge.

This was a question posted on Reddit.  It brought up a good conversation, but I think I can condense it into a few point to help you decided between buying a Pebble or other smart watch now, or wait for the Apple iWatch. Before I bought my Pebble through kick starter a year ago, got… Read More

I finally got my Pebble watch after near a year from when I bought it on kickstarter.  When I first bought it I figured, well there will not be many applications at first, but hopefully some core useful apps will come out.  Now that I have the watch my reaction is .. meh.  However, Best… Read More


This is a bit late but I have been busy.  So its pretty old news now that yes many of the ‘New’ UI improvements in iOS7 have been around for awhile.  Many via Jailbreak.  So say something you really liked in iOS7?  Check out this list.  Odds are you can have it. However, before we… Read More

The rumors were true. Apple has finally overhauled its UI; and it looks like a combination of Metro and flaticons (Jailbreak).  I guess that says something for the Metro design approach. The redesign is cleaner and more efficient, but somehow it just does not sit well.  It feels like its trapped between Metro and the… Read More

In the past year, we’ve seen rapid infusion of consumer technologies into today’s workplace in the form of mobile apps. This trend is driven by two factors: the movement towards bring-your-own-device (BYOD), and the fact that enterprise apps now use consumer sales channels. As a result, user expectations on mobile are steadily rising, and customers… Read More

This is not that big of a deal, and if you are not using a SIM phone, you do not need to worry about it, but just goes to show that your phone is not completely safe. The new lock screen bug was first documented by YouTube user videosdebarraquito, who posted a video demoing the… Read More

For most people, probably not. Just in case you do not know what unlocking is; unlocking your cell phone allows you to use a phone carrior other then what is ‘locked’ to your phone. For example, if you bought an iphone that is locked to AT&T, you can ONLY use AT&T. However, if you ‘unlock’… Read More
