MagicPad for iPhone, which once drew a lot of attention due to its copy & paste feature, is now on promotion to celebrate holiday season. Originally sold at USD$3.99, MagicPad is now available download at iPhone App Store.

While we are waiting for Apple to implement a system-wide copy & paste feature, MagicPad brings us copy & paste feature while writing note (but only work within MagicPad itself). Even copy & paste feature may not be what you’re looking for, MagicPad is still a very good replacement of the original Note application. It provides a rich-text editor that allows you to change font size, type or highlight your text with different colors.

To highlight text for copy & paste, you can just double tap and hold on any part of the word where you’d like to begin the selection. Then drag your finger until the end of the selection. Afterwards, you can just copy or cut the selection and paste it somewhere else. Copy & paste works pretty well within MagicPad. But for starter, you may need to take a few trial to get used to text highlight. The video will better show you how it works.

– Copy, Cut & Paste: easily move text within a note or to a brand new note

– Rich-Text Editing: customize text with 6 different fonts, 5 sizes, 8 colors, and 4 effects

– Email: send your rich-text creations to yourself or share with friends

New in this version * Email enhancements:

– CAPTCHA removed
– Ability to send email through iPhone Mail App
– Ability to send plain-text emails
* Ability for users to sort notes by:
– Date Modified
– By Title
– Manually
– Ascending or descending view
* Users can now set default text attributes
* Swipe delete action added for notes
* Ability to edit/delete several notes at once
* UI improvements
* Bug fixes

Turn Your iPhone Into Video Camera (Jailbreak Beginner Vol.2)

21 12 2008

This is volume 2 of the iPhone Jailbreak for Beginner series. In my previous post, i was covered how to use and install Cydia for Jailbreak Beginner Volume 1. The question is, What is the first application to install via Cydia?…

Cycorder is Free Video Application

Personnally, Cycorder is definitely the first application to download and I highly recommend every jailbreak user to put this application on your iPhone. For those who haven’t heard of Cycorder, Cycorder lets capture video using iPhone’s built-in camera. Cycorder is not new to long-time jailbreak user. It’s been released since Aug and I had put up a post about Cycorder at that time. For jailbreak beginner, you may refer to my post on how to install Cycorder via Cydia.

iPhone Video Recorder

Cycorder is not the only application to add video capture capability to iPhone. iPhone Video Recorder also added video capability on iPhone but it’s not free application.It offers a trial version that allows you record video for 30 times. And, it costs you USD$19.95 to upgrade to the full version. iPhone Video Recorder, developed by Dream Catcher is the first comer of iPhone Video Capture application and has been released the application to iPhone since 1.x firmware.

Same as Cycorder, iPhone Video Recorder can record both audio and video to compressed MPEG4 format. In mid-Nov, Dream Catcher released iPhone Video Recorder v3.0. The new version adds:

  1. Real time MOV-format Recording
  2. Huge Improvement in Video quality
  3. Spy-mode Recording (Record video even when iPhone Screen is turned off)

iPhone Video Recorder is available via Cydia. To download, please add iPhone Video Recorder source “” to your Cydia source, and install it. See my post on how to add sources via Cydia.

Which one should you head for?

Compared with Cycoder, iPhone Video Recorder comes with more options (e.g. video mode, audio recording quality) to configure. And, it lets you directly upload the video to YouTube or send it via email. Both applications are awesome and power your iPhone with video capturing feature. But considered the price, the *free* Cycorder is definitely the top choice.

How To Use Cydia (Jailbreak Beginner Vol.1)

20 12 2008

Cydia is the 1st Stop after Jailbreak (What is Cydia?)

With iPhone Jailbreak, Cydia will be the first application you need to know and start with. One of top reasons to jailbreak iPhone is to enpower it to install third-party applications. And, Cydia, developed by Jay Freeman, is the heart of all. You may consider Cydia as the App Store for jailbreak iPhone, that lets you download and install third-party applications on iPhone. Personnally, Cydia is like installer manager, its can make up your iPhone with common application for smartphone requirements. Its provide a lot of open source third-party application to install and sometime i called Cydia is “Cydia Installer”.

Cydia Developed by Jay Freeman (Saurik)

Why Cydia and 3rd-Party applications?

As you know, since the release of firmware 2.0, Apple enables every iPhone with the game-changing App Store. Developers can put up application on App Store for every iPhone user to download. Okay then, what’s the point to have Cydia? The short answer is not every application can get through Apple’s approval process and appear in App Store. A very good example is NetShare, which tries to turn iPhone 3G into a wireless modem, that was banned by Apple for some reasons. Cydia is here to fill the gap and lets you download other 3rd party applications that you probably can’t find on App Store.

How To Use Cydia For The Very First Time

Cydia is very easy to use and well manage. If you know how to use App Store, you’ll have no difficulties with Cydia. The first time you launch Cydia, you’ll be asked to select the type of filter:

For normal user, you can just set the filter to “User (Graphical Only”. With this setting, Cydia will filter out those applications which you’re not interested.

Upgrading Cydia
