AppInfo Lists Tweaks by Install Date

Photo: pic     Photo

The AppInfo iPhone tweak is unmissable on a jailbroken iPhone, giving you access to all sorts of information:
  • A list of your apps from the Apple AppStore
  • A list of Cydia tweaks and repositories
  • Springboard tweaks
  • iPod music
Most of which can be exported as a simple or detailed list that you can email (to yourself).

Extra noteworthy is that the lists of AppStore apps and Cydia tweaks can be sorted:
  • Alphabetically
  • Size
  • Date Installed
Install Date helps you remember which apps or tweaks you installed most recently. Can be very useful, for example to help you identify sudden problems you may experience with newly installed apps or tweaks, like sudden increased battery drain, poor performance, or crashes.

This Cydia tweak can be found in the BigBoss repository, usually shipped by default in Cydia.

Hope you found this useful!

If so, and you're feeling generous, please tip some Bitcoin above left, cheers!

Send iPhone photos to PC Instantly


This is a pretty random post, but it may just stick at the back of your head and save you a minute or two.

How do you get a photo or pic (e.g. a screen capture) from your iPhone to your laptop/desktop PC very quickly?

I usually email it. But today I couldn't be bothered to wait that long. First, the Gmail progress bar always annoys me, then I can't copy paste the image straight out of Gmail.

Alternative? Facebook. Share the image directly from your iPhone's camera roll or photo stream to Facebook - make it PRIVATE if you want by selecting "Only Me" under Audience.

Then navigate to facebook.com, hit your profile and right-click to copy the photo/pic.

This took me a matter of seconds. Simple, trivial, but very satisfying!

Free Summer Vacation Music Tip


If you need a nice juicy supply of new tunes for your Summer vacation, you can use a 1 month free Spotify Premium subscription - easy to cancel before you actually get charged.
Spotify Premium will let you download as much music as you like legally, for free, on your phone/tablet/laptop.
You can cancel before the month is up and you will not be charged!
Even if you've done it before, you can do it again, just sign up for Spotify using a different email address.
So here are the steps (and some Tips!)

  • Sign up for Spotify (NOT with Facebook but with an email you don't use much) https://www.spotify.com/signup
  • Then log on to your new Spotify account and opt for 1 month free Spotify Premium.
  • Use PayPal to pay for it (other payment method also probably ok)
  • Download Spotify on your phone/laptop/tablet, https://www.spotify.com/download then open Spotify, browse the app and put all the music you like into PLAYLISTS. It's important to make playlists as this allows you to save the music 'offline' for listening to later without an internet connection. I recommend making a new playlist for each whole album you like. But you can also organise your playlists into music genres or mood, or whatever you like!
  • IMPORTANT, you need to select the 'OFFLINE' setting in each of these playlists, so that the music actually gets stored on your phone/tablet/laptop and you can listen without an internet connection. Note that if you selected a lot of music, this may take up quite a lot of space.
  • Note: Spotify never lets you actually download mp3, so you NEVER get to permanently keep the music. But it's perfect for vacation!
  • Cancelling your subscription before actually paying anything is easy. Just go to https://www.spotify.com/account/subscription/cancel and choose to cancel you subscription.
  • Or! you can stay subscribed to Spotify Premium and pay a reasonable monthly amount to get lots of music indefinitely!
