IBM’s relationship with Openoffice.org goes all the way back to 1997. Ten years later, that finally led the computing giant to offer up a whole new Lotus product, Lotus Symphony, which was itself based upon the Openoffice.org codebase. The move came as a bit of a shock to plenty of folks in the IT business […]
Megaupload users who had important files stored on the company’s servers may not be completely out of luck… yet. Last week a US District Attorney made headlines by stating that hosting companies may begin deleting the servers’ contents as early as this Thursday. But apparently Megaupload’s lawyers have been successful in delaying that process. Megaupload’s […]
For those of you who are old enough to remember playing multiplayer FPS titles like Quake and Rainbow Six on the now defunct MPlayer gaming community, you probably have less than fond memories of ladder matches that suffered serious rubber-banding and lag when you put more than 15 players in a game. Of course this […]
Back at the beginning of the month, Apple rejected a Steve Jobs tribute calendar application, noting that apps made in honor of the late Apple co-founder and former CEO were not being accepted by the company. Now, the application’s developer has chosen to make the app (which is called “Tribute Calendar”) available via the Cydia Store, where it can be downloaded for free.
We are really happy (& proud) to announce that ‘Tribute Calendar’ is launched with Cydia Store.
We have kept our promise to release the App free (as well Ad Free), it will remain Free for lifetime.
Though Steve Jobs wasn’t exactly a fan of jailbreaking, it’s nice Apple fans can download the application in an ad-free form free of charge, providing they have a jailbroken iOS device. However, the app’s developer added:
One more thing…

aremaC ($0.99) by Dominik Seibold is an effects app that goes a lot deeper than most. Beginners can use the stock effects. Intermediate users can download more effects from an extensive crowdsourced online library, for free. Advanced users can create new effects, in astounding detail, and add it to the online library for others to use.
If you’re not looking for complex photo editing maneuvers, simply tap the book icon at the bottom to bring up the stock effects. Choose a photo from your photo library and tap an effect to add it. Or choose an effect first and start shooting with the effects applied live. There aren’t a ton of these to start, just Invert, Rainbowed, River, Warhol, and Small World.
The next step would be to check out the online library of filters/effects; simply tap the “Online Library” icon to access them. You’ll need to sign up for a free account in order to access these. The “nickname” you choose will be your name attached any filters you may create. Here you’ll find categories such as Lomography, Vintage, Avant-garde, Special Effects, Video, Art, Simulation, and lots more. Find an effect you like? Tap “Use” to add it to your list of stock effects available within the app. Each effect has the creator’s name at the bottom. Tap that name to bring up a list of all the effects that person has created. You can also sort these filters by popularity or newest added.
If you are interested in creating your own effects, I’d strongly recommend that you watch all of the videos in the help section of the app. To be honest, the effect creation is really beyond my abilities, but I mention it because AremaC really is an impressive app in terms of setting your creativity free from limitations. If you’ve thought of an effect you wish existed, you’ll probably be able to create it here. One of the videos in the app even explains how to create a green screen effect; as seen here in the photos of Jessica Alba. Once you create your own preset, you can share it to the online library with your name and the title you wish to give it.
Whether you like simple photography apps where you can add cool filters and effects with a tap, or whether you like to create your own with professional-level tools and share your presets with the community, there is something for everyone in AremaC.
Last year, when Motorola promised to unlock the bootloaders on its phones, the development community celebrated. Online petitions, social media bombing, and numerous emails were credited for pressuring Moto into making the pledge. The only problem, though, is that Motorola hasn’t followed through. The original announcement had promised that all Motorola bootloaders would be unlocked […]
