Tv Shows

Screen Shot 2013-02-14 at 12.34.20 AM Screen Shot 2013-02-14 at 12.35.31 AM TVShowsAnyone who follows and downloads a lot of Tv show torrents will know that it can get tedious keeping track of episodes and then finding the right torrent to download it.

I came across an app(Mac) which is by far the best TV show app I have ever come across. Going by the name of TVShows 2 this app is a must for Tv SHow enthusiasts.

The interface is simple and to the point. You click “add show” and do a search for the show you want, click subscribe and you’re done. The next time your favorite TV show airs this app will automatically download the recently aired episode(HD) No need to track the shows and no need to visit any website.

It is actually that simple.

The TVShows 2 app is available for Mac only from here.

Hands on the Blackberry Z10

Blackberry Z10Do or die. Thats what it is now for Blackberry. The Z10 and Q10 is hoping to change that. I am not a Blackberry fan at all. I love my IOS and Android but today I got my hands on the Z10 and I must say I am impressed.

The initial configurations are simple. When your start up the phone for the 1st time it shows you a tutorial on gensture which is pretty important keeping in view forward, back, close etc are all gesture controlled.

Under the hood:

A 1.5GHz dual-core processor with 2GB of RAM. You also get 16GB of internal memory as well as the microSD card slot up to 64 GB. This is enough power and storage for most of you out there. Needless to say Wifi, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC and 4G LTE are also present.

Size and Build:

Some might consider the Z10 a bit chunky due to its measurements of 130mm x 65.6mm x 9mm but due to the build quality being pretty good, it gives you a very comfortable feeling when using it. The  front consists of a Gorilla Glass panel with touch-sensitive screen. All is all I really love the design. Read more »

Downloads movies and music directly on IOS

One of the limitations of IOS for me was always having to first download audio and video and then thru Itunes transfer to my Iphone/Ipad. Im going to tell you of 3 apps which will change this forever. These are available in Cydia for  free.

01) I transmission 3:

Torrents Anyone using torrents will greatly appreciate this app.

I download a lot of Tv shows using utorrent. I then have to convert them and put them in tunes after which I have to sync to my Ipad/Iphone which I then use to stream to my TV. Read more »

Installous Alternative

Lets face it. With installous shutting down its doors permanently a jail broken IOS device just isn’t the same. Lets take a look at a few of the alternatives.

Before you can install these, you would need to add the following repos in Cydia.

01) repocydia.com
02) cydia.iphonecake.com

Vshare-AppVV
The 1st one and my personal favourite is vshare-AppVV I actually prefer this over installous because there is no waiting time. Also no more captchas before you download. There are more apps here than you can think off. Compatibility: IPhone and Ipad

Appcake
Similar to Installous, this is basically the same. Although it has a decent selection of apps, I found it coming in at a close 2nd to Vshare. Compatibility: IPhone and Ipad

Combined, these 2 would replace Installous in every way possible, or at least it has for me. Happy app hunting.

My favorite cydia tweaks.

With the recent jailbreak for IOS6.1 Cydia servers are swamped but that’s not going to stop anyone from being persistent and downloading the much awaited tweaks/apps.

Here is a list of my top 10(In no particular order)

01) Winterboard: If you dont know what this is then you really have no idea about an Iphone/Ipad.

02) Auxo:

Auxo

This tweak is really something which was the way Apple should have made the default app switcher. The recently used apps are shown with a preview with an icon on top. To close the running app you simply need flick down. Scroll to the extreme left and you have your configuration toggle with the bluetooth, wifi, #g etc settings which saves you a lot of time by not having to go to the settings each time you want to switch something on/off.
