Fleksy new iOS keyboard?

They desired to choose a little section of text from one spot to a different, as well as their telephones would not let them do it. They managed to constructed a remedy that beat Apple to the punch, though it finally did not catch on.
It created a straightforward scratch pad which can be shared between programs, and programmers only needed to add the attribute with their particular software. Just a few programs did thus, and once Apple added its utility, OpenClip faded away into irrelevance. Now one business is attempting to seek out success having the same attempt that targets a much more vital element of having an iPhone: the whole computer keyboard.
The Fleksy computer keyboard *By* Paunescu Ionut
For the last year as well as a half, San Francisco-based Fleksy has offered up its own computer keyboard program for iOS. And beginning today, the organization needs to distribute that computer keyboard to other programs, establishing a kit that lets other programmers add it into their own software using one line of code. The outcome is an entirely distinct, alternative computer keyboard, and one that users might be comfortable with from app to app. Fleksy has existed on iOS as a fantastic technology demo. It is an item of software made for both power users as well as for people who have eyesight difficulties, joining gestures and touch typing to increase writing on miniature displays. Like so a number of other alternative computer keyboards, the purpose of Fleksy will be to go beyond what smartphone manufacturers offer from the carton, speeding things up where potential and simplifying others. Yet, so far it is only existed as a standalone program, where users peck things outside, are perhaps impressed by the attributes, subsequently have to copy and paste the text elsewhere when they would like to do anything with it. Bringing Fleksy to other iOS programs isn’t without its challenges. Unlike Android, which will be open to all sorts of third party computer keyboard creations, Apple gives you its computer keyboard and nothing else. Programmers can construct their very own particular computer keyboards on an program-by-program basis, though it is unusual. Google has done that using a smattering of its own iOS programs, while Wolfram Alpha’s specific search program computer keyboard takes up almost the whole display with custom buttons. Even though it had been believed that Apple was considering opening up to third party computer keyboard manufacturers, ultimately it did not. But it did throw programmers a bone by simplifying its software applications, says Fleksy creator Ioannis Verdelis. “With every new variant of iOS the work needed on our part to create a computer keyboard SDK has reduced significantly,” he says. “We are [now] doing information on iOS that incorporates the computer keyboard deeper than it’s ever been incorporated.”
The organization is beginning that integration inside four independent job programs created by other firms: unofficial Google voice tool GV Connect, typing assistance Blindsquare, text editor Wordbox, and productivity software Launch Center Pro. All these programs will be pushing out upgrades including Fleksy’s computer keyboard as an alternative instead of the one which comes assembled into iOS. The organization can also be opening it up for other program manufacturing companies to get access to the API and contain the Fleksy computer keyboard within their very own programs, though it is not open to everyone. Businesses must request the attribute, and Fleksy gets to determine who gets access. For the time being, Verdelis says that is so the business could make sure everything looks great and is easy to toggle. If there is a wrinkle in Fleksy’s strategy, it is the organization isn’t clear how these other program developers ought to be offering the computer keyboard to users. Verdelis says he is leaving it up to other people to decide if they would like to offer Fleksy as a free addon, or as a paid upgrade through in-program purchase. That is an entirely distinct company from what Fleksy’s done on Android, and distinct from another software computer keyboard manufacturer. The organization found its computer keyboard on Android last week at no cost, which Verdelis says has recently been downloaded more than 100,000 times. Once installed, computer keyboards like Fleksy work everywhere. But competition on Android for computer keyboards is a lot more intense. Each has a gimmick and will be changed out in a moment’s notice, though just as readily be forgotten. For Fleksy, Apple’s platform provides a sizable library of software to incorporate into, with present estimates hovering around a million programs. Verdelis expects to do what was hard for OpenClip in 2008, and now clearly hopeless in 2013: get “every program” to purchase to the theory that another computer keyboard is great notion, and let somebody else control how people search for his or her preferred programs. “It is always not possible to determine before you have done it,” Verdelis says.

Change SIRI gender in iOS 9

iOS 9 brought many changes to Siri, with a whole new appearance and skills. Formerly this alternative wasn’t accessible although the male variant of Siri has existed since the start and was accessible to United Kingdom English users.

Altering the voice sex of Siri in iOS 9 is quite straightforward. From that point it is possible to select between male and female variants of the personal assistant. Once chosen the voice sex is altered immediately and it doesn’t need an individual to restart the apparatus.

Interestingly this alternative is accessible for particular languages. Even the users of United Kingdom English cannot alter the voice sex of Siri. To be able to do so they are able to alter the language of Siri to usa or Canadian variants of English.

Which voice sex of Siri do you want? Tell us in the comments section below.

Know how many hours are left for your alarm with AlarmNotifier

In the event you count your slumber hours (that’s an excellent custom to ensure that you clock the required level of sleep every night), this tweak needs to be useful. AlarmNotifier reveals just how many hours are left before the alarm clock goes off.

So you get enough sleep.

AlarmNotifier makes sure you understand just exactly how many hours are to lapse between now and also the period of the alarm clock. And it kind of sets that advice not only beneath the alarm clock labels but is a little in your face using a popup dialog.

When you set an alarm clock (or empower a current one), you will receive a popup that says Time Until Alarm Clock is Active using how many hours, minutes and seconds left till the alarm clock goes off.


The time-left is additionally revealed beneath the alarm title so if you believe the popup is redundant, it is possible to disable it from the settings.

AlarmNotifier works unobtrusively and it doesnt alter another bit of the interface for the Alarm Clock. Exactly the same attribute can be had on third party alarm clock uses like Rise but should you prefer going the jailbreak course, its a considerably lighter alternative.

Or a far greater manner of operation will be to possess the popup show the time left but let it fade away on its own. The Vehicle Blow Off Popup does that. Enable the switch after which select a number in the Seconds Until Auto Blow Off setting (2 seconds is optimal).

AlarmNotifier is readily available free of charge on the BigBoss repo.

FiftyTree TradeMark Files Called Facebook Paper

Recently, Facebook is launched a new reader app Paper. The divergence with FiftyThre was declined by Facebook and name was not change. FiftyThree is motivated to protect her brand name. Her application for Paper term was filed on 30 January. FiftyThree CEO and cofounder, Georg Petschnigg, had make an address for TechCrunch and expire her sincerely sentiments and disposition for open negotiation. For Facebook is not a so good option to use this brand name, but technically FiftyThree only trademark on the USPTO was for the “Paper by FiftyThree”.


Cofounder and CEO of FiftyThree say in a declaration about Paper trademark and FiftyThree applied for that and approved “Paper by FiftyThree”.

UPSTO make regularly improvement in five-seven days but now he approve this faster. In a rezerve situation FiftyThree give the case for her lowers: Roberto Ledesma and Victor Cardona.

“Just by using a mark in a particular field, you’ve got rights,” said Cardona. “Some are state-based and some are federal-based, but if I start using a mark before you in the same area of goods or services, I’ve got rights to the mark over you.”

A lot of law men make more and more remarks about subjectivism of trademarks law and caused many deferens and rededications from the companies.

“As the later user, Facebook would have to make the case that these uses are distinguishable and consumers will not be confused,” said Roberto Ledesma. “The more similar the marks the less similar the uses have to be to find infringement. Here the marks are identical so less similarity is needed.”

The official position of FiftyThree is here: “In the U.S., trademark rights are use-based (i.e., one does not need a registration) and FiftyThree has well-established common-law trademark rights in PAPER alone. Google “Paper” and we are the #1 result. Search for #MadeWithPaper on social media and you’ll find over a million creations in public. Indeed, PAPER alone is widely recognized by the public as our brand and trademark. And we recently filed for registration of PAPER alone.

At this point we are reserving all legal options. More importantly, we stand for creativity and believe in a level playing field when it comes to building companies and brands”.

Facebook is a company so big and unfortunately FiftyThree is smaller. In this situation FiftyThre could be wear down even FiftyThree have 15 million funding. But peoples are happy: the Paper is very popular. Nobody lose.


Looking for a great Installous substitute? Check out our recommendations!

Ever since 2007 when the first Jailbreaking Tool was released, iPhone and iPad owners were provided with an alternative to the applications that AppStore issued for its users. The thrill behind the jailbreak phenomenon was due to its possibility to access apps and programs that were either condemned by Apple, or, even if accepted, they were not free. One of the most popular platforms to use after jailbreaking your iDevice was Installous, which was similar to the App Store, but the apps you downloaded were free. Unfortunately, Installous was shut down, and people all over the world were in search of possible alternatives.

There is a wide range of apps and programs to choose from, but finding a good substitute might sometimes be tricky. It`s impossible at this moment to state which one is best, but we compiled a list of options for you.

So, in alphabetical order, we have:

  1. App Cake is rumored to be very similar to the much longed for Installous. It is very user-friendly and therefore easy to use, but user ratings depict the fact that it is a little bit slow.
  2. HipStore , which can be accessed by users via their computers . With just one click, a world of free apps, games and so on is revealed to you. After browsing through the platform in search of your desired apps, you must simply drag&drop them from your computer onto your iDevice. In order to install HipStore on your iPhone, you will need to have AppSync installed, and the following repo added to the sources on Cydia : cydia.heaveniphone, so you can search and download the HipStore.
  3. The iFunbox is a good substitute for Installous because it helps you install apps from IPAStore easy directly on your phone, or transfer them on various devices (iOS,Mac,Windows). Its popularity increased due to its similarities to Installous.
  4. Next, we have IPAStore, which basically is a web page that allows you to search and download the apps you want directly on your iDevice. For installing it, you need to add the following repo: http://ihacksrepo.com between the Cydia`s sources, and then simply search for IpaStore.
  5. Last but not least, we have the vShare which is almost like Installous, but with a different interface. It is well organized mostly because it is indexed so you can find your desired apps browsing different categories. It is available for both jailbroken and non-jailbroken devices, and like the platforms presented so far, it requires the hackulos.us repo , allowing you to download anything you want from basic apps to IPA files.
  6. Zeusmos is another great app that will allow you to download everything from free apps&games, to themes and ringtones. There is a big variety you can choose from. In order to install it, you need to open Cydia, search and download Zeusmos (by adding this source www.repo.zeusmos.com) .Of course, you need to download AppSync as well. The apps are installed directly to your home screen. What can be easier?


Both AppCake and IPAStore as well as vShare can be used only if you have the AppSync installed which is available via hackulo.us repo.

If you don’t know how to add new repositories to Cydia, let us make it easy for you by explaining it very short&simple: You have to open Cydia and choose the Manage tab from the ones that will appear on screen. Once you opened it, go to sources and tap the edit button, which will allow you to either add a new repository or delete the existing ones. Good luck!

Apple devices are one of the most popular and wanted technology pieces these days, but considering the fact that they are a bit pricey, it really comes in handy for every owner to know that there are various things he can do, and different apps&platforms he can download in order to access his favorite applications without having to spend some more money. Of course, the purpose of this tips&tricks is to help you try an app before you buy it.

All these alternatives to Installous may not be as highly-rated and adored as the original platform, but they are intensively used by a huge amount of users with no complaints. They work great on iPhone, iPod and iPads and are only one-click-away. Try them yourself!

See all your interactions with your screen with TouchPosé+

If you like mirroring or to record a short presentation or tutorial but don’t know how to include and shot taps, touches and swipes well TouchPosé+ does the trick easily. Even though it is the paid version of TouchPosé, TouchPosé+ has also support for multi touch. Just like its small brother this will show a semitransparent blue circle for any touch interaction of you with your screen. These features are the same as those from Display Recorder developed by Ryan Petrich but without the recording capability.
The installation is easy and the settings for this can be found in Settings > TouchPosé+, from where you can choose the size of the circle from 20 pixels to 100 pixels using a slider. You can also choose the color for the circles.


This tweak is simple and neat so for just $1 I say money well spent. TouchPosé+ is developed by iolate and can be found in the BigBoss repo. Even though we find paid apps with bugs I guaranty that this tweak is bug free.

For making video tutorials if you already have a recorder this is perfect if not I suggest the all-in one Display Recorder from Ryan which his creation is also worth trying.
