Best Jailbreak Tweaks for Ultimate Protection of iPhone and iPad

Internet users are paying thousands of dollars for protection of their data and privacy, no matter what device or gadget they are using because every device that has communication capability needs protection of data. Theft of data and its misuse is a common issue now, almost every OS maker is trying to improve their OS's security but ultimate protection can be achieved by user itself with the use of third party apps and tools.

According to 2014's survey, iOS is the most secured operating system among all available in the market, because Apple has its own security standards for app makers and developers, while Android apps bring lots of viruses and malicious code with them. Of course iOS devices aren't secured from every type of exploit, as we've seen some potential issues like SSL security exploit and heartbleed bug with iOS too in past. One of the best methods is to secure your iOS device, is antivirus software; many of them are free with some basic protection services. Moreover, theft protection apps are more smarter than thieves, as discussed here about "find my iPhone" feature by Apple, that helps every iOS user in finding his/her device's location if the device is stolen or lost.

To make an iOS device including iPhone and iPad, I've complied some best jailbreak tweaks and apps that will provide you with ultimate protection.

Note: These apps and tweaks are only compatible with jailbroken iOS devices.

Protect My Privacy


Mostly viruses come from third party apps available in Apple's app store, in some circumstances their support misses to identify those vulnerabilities in apps if those exploits are new in technology World. When you use any iOS app, it accesses your data like location, unique identifier ID, advertising ID, device name and contacts. This data is enough to allow a hacker to blackmail you. Protect My Privacy is a free jailbreak app, that works awesome, because it doesn't allow any iOS app to access your personal data and for the time being it provides those apps with fake location, identifier and advertising IDs. This auto generated data changes when you close that app and your real information restores. Moreover, you can change these IDs and location manually every time you open-up an iOS app.

tsProtector P


If someone gets access to your file system then he can easily access your data, Apple ID's password, iCloud password and also he can purchase apps and products from Online resources. It's is essential to hide your system information from installed iOS apps, they can send your information to hackers via live servers. Tsprotector P helps you to stop iOS apps and tweaks from accessing your system information, by this you can make your iOS more secure. You can grab it in just $1.39 from Cydia.

iProtect


With this tiny and incredible jailbreak tweak you can password protect almost everything available on your iOS device. You can protect photos, documents, contacts and messages with iProtect. Moreover, the ground breaking feature of this tweak is that it allows you to open the password via fingerprint sensor or touch ID. iProtect is freely available in Cydia store.

Asuo


WhatsApp is the most popular chat messenger in all available messenger apps for iOS, but unfortunately no satisfactory protection is available for this billions dollars app. Asuo jailbreak tweak brings complete protection solution for WhatsApp for iOS. With the help of Asuo you can stop others from accessing your WhatsApp contacts, chats, favorites and contact notifications. There are many other tweaks available for WhatsApp like WhatsApp+ and WhatsAppProtect, but this Asuo is smarter than those. You can get this tweak in $1.99 from Cydia.

If you've any other jailbreak tweaks for ultimate protection of iPhone and iPad, do share with us via commenting on this article.

Mobile Application Marketing Tips To Elevate Your Business

App development is a constantly growing industry that, even though already densely populated, always has room for stars on the rise. It is this huge number of people already working on the development of smartphone apps that usually acts as a deterrent to those also thinking about pursuing the same career. Quite simply, people are afraid that they will never get enough exposure in such a crowded market and they give up before even trying. If, however, you are not scarred of a little competition, you’ll be glad to know that there are things that you can do to help you distinguish yourself from your competitors and attract quite a bit of attention from consumers.

First of all, you should know that in this industry, app marketing strategy planning happens pretty much at the same time as the development of the app itself. In order to determine which features your app should poses and what criteria it needs to satisfy, you’ll have to do an extensive research of your competitors and to gain a decent understanding for the customer demands. Both of these things,seeing what is currently offered and what you can do to present people with a new, original and useful product, as well as identifying your target demographics and their specific demands, will play an important role in the creation of your marketing strategy. If you manage to create a uniquely useful product, you’re marketing will practically take care of itself.
mobile apps marketing



This also means that you can start creating hype among the potentially interested consumers as soon as you’ve determined who they are. Issuing updates and keeping the public informed can go a long way towards building up expectations and ensuring a rise of interest in your app. Alternatively, you could keep quiet until the app is completely finished, and hope to increase the impact that the features of your app will have on people after the launch. Deciding on one of these two approaches will depend both on your target demographics as well as on the type of the app you are making and the solutions that you have included in the app.

Naturally, having a website focused around the app could help you immensely, especially if you manage to make it informative and extensive enough to support its own steady reader base. This is to say that it doesn’t have to be only about the app itself, but can offer different materials that people in your target demographics find interesting or useful.

Engagement on social networks is pretty much already a given in any marketing discussion, and naturally, app development is not an exception. Keeping people notified on everything that is new with your app or company is just a fragment of your responsibilities, though. If you want to gain any real attention you have to offer something that people will find engaging. This is where you really get to be creative with your approach. Finding something interesting about your app shouldn’t be a problem for you, so feel free to make a video or post about it that you can easily share with people who are considered influencers in your niche.

Finally, make sure that your customers are satisfied and that you are offering a top notch product – word of mouth and positive reviews are as important as ever.

6 Tips to Create Great Mobile Web Design

It’s not a little known fact that mobile and web design have not just developed greatly, but have also blended well. Now a website design is incomplete without having a customized mobile web design in place. They both go hand in hand. In order to develop a solid, visually appealing and futuristic mobile web design, there are a range of options in between and aspects to take care of. Here are 6 ultimate tips on what to keep into account when defining your mobile strategy and designing for mobile.

6 Tips to Create Great Mobile Web Design

1. The mobile and web development industry is growing at a rapid pace

Web design companies are struggling to keep up with this pace and find it difficult to upgrade their creations every other month or year, as and when mobile advancements happen, or when people change their preferences. To be able to remain parallel to this change, companies need to be futuristic in their approach. As much possible they need to develop something which can be upgraded after few years rather than a complete redesign. For this, companies need to list their primary requirements, challenges and solutions. Once immediate needs are in place, one can alter the strategy around those requirements. Being futuristic will help companies to match the increasing development.

2. Be updated about new technologies and what are the expected trends

Knowing what device is more popular amongst the users, and from which device or region does majority of traction comes in, will help a web design company to work in a specific direction. It helps to plan a strategy according to what the user is expecting. For this, a strong research and analysis team is required. This team should be able to analyse and report about user behaviour. Moreover, they should be able to come up with constructive steps that should be considered while developing websites for mobile viewing. Go one step further by also analysing whether majority users have a speedy internet connection or not. It will be beneficial if the website aims at collecting data. You wouldn’t want the user to refill data repeatedly because the website takes too much bandwidth, than what their connection can give.

3. There are two perspectives to look at mobile design

One being that people are in a hurry and want everything quick and crisp on their mobile. Second being that people are on mobile majority times when they have a lot of time to kill. In both perspectives, to a large extent, companies are right. So what’s the middle path? Keep the content crisp, loading time fast and less scrolling and navigation. In either perspectives, these things will never backfire for any company. There are a range of misconceptions regarding mobile website usage that can lead to misleading design decisions.

4. Try to avoid building separate mobile sites

Continuity is always preferred by any user. Additionally, to make a separate mobile site will be time consuming as well as an added cost. During times of upgrade, it would be laborious to update two different websites of the same company. A web design company should always suggest this to their clients.

6. You can always optimize your design and codes keeping the same content in place

It’s how you play with designs and presentation that will enhance the impact of the content placed. Test this thoroughly before rolling it out. Not just on different devices, but test it through different people. Don’t consider all perspectives that you receive; choose the important and good ones to execute. Use it optimally since mobile is a great platform where features can be tailored to create a great experience and connect with the user, which a desktop might not be able to achieve.
