Many people I’ve talked to are anxious to try out the new features Apple has brought to OS X Mountain Lion. Unfortunately, Apple has only made the beta of Mountain Lion available to registered developers. In this video, I’ll show you how you can get the biggest features of Mountain Lion today, using only existing apps.

It isn’t often that you can liken a Japanese TV programme to a sideways-scrolling monster truck game, but while racing the green shadow car over chaotic scenery, the obstacle course with the wrecking ball from Takeshi’s Castle comes to mind. Monster Trucks Nitro 2 takes the well worn and quite tedious premise of sideways-scrolling scenery with automatic acceleration and some obstacles to get over and turns it into a carnage-strewn, gravity-defying race against time. The aim of the game is to rotate the truck to get maximum lift on jumps and flips where possible to gain nitro

boosts, and get the tyres back on the ground to keep the speed up — as shown by the green shadow car. Best of all, the trucks are a shiny 3D, and the chaos caused during the race is a visual feast.


A new version of the Apple iOS has been released and with iOS 5.1.1 there comes the task of the many hackers and the jailbreak community to provide a new jailbreak solution and a way to unlock iPhone 4 on iOS 5.1.1.

The various dev teams have already begun bringing out updates to their jailbreak and unlock utilities. The new iOS doesn’t seem to have anything major in terms of changes and most of the changes are to fix bugs and provide a few performance enhancements. For those iPhone owners with older basebands who rely on the Ultrasn0w unlock there is good news.

The Ultrasn0w Fixer has been updated to support iOS 5.1.1. Ultrasn0w currently supports the following iPhone 4 and iPhone 4GS basebands:

• 01.59.00
• 04.26.08
• 05.11.07
• 05.13.01
• 05.12.01
• 06.15.00

The official version of Ultrasn0w is to be updated also but until then here is a quick way to ensure that you can unlock iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS on iOS 5.1.1. In order for this to work you must have a jailbroken iPhone on iOS 5.1.1 using custom firmware with old baseband preserved.

The first thing you have to do to unlock iPhone 4 on iOS 5.1.1 is to go to Cydia and browse to manage and select Sources. Next select Edit and Add to add the required repository. Type into the pop up and then press Add Source.

Once the repo has been added you need to open it in the source list which will display the Ultrasn0w Fixer 5.1.1 utility. Select the Fixer utility and tap the install button which you will find at the top right hand corner. The install will only take a few seconds. Once you have completed this the latest official version of Ultrasn0w which is 1.2.5 will need to be installed. Select Search in Cydia and type in Ultrasn0w and search the package. Once you find it, install it and you now have an unlocked iPhone on iOS 5.1.1.


In the past I’ve mentioned a great library that can be used to create elegant popup style modal panels.
Recently I received the submission of an interesting component that allows you to create partial modal views that cover the bottom of the screen and is styled after the National Geographic parks guide app.
The concept is similar to a UIAlertView however allows much more customization as you can insert any UIView elements within the model view and rather than just dim the screen the screen contents are shrunk, and shifted into the background with an accompanying animatio

Here’s a set of images from the Github page demonstrating how similar the components results are to the modal views in the National Geographic app:

The component is KNSemiModalViewController from Kent Nguyen.
You can find the component on Github here and read Kent’s writeup about the component on his site here.
You can find the National Geographic National Parks App on iTunes here.
The different animations and little touches with this component give it a very memorable effect.

This thing came up sometime back. While jailbroken iPhones actually let you play with the panorama feature which usually is hidden on the camera, there is a method which does not require you to jailbreak your iPhone or unlock it.

How to Take Panorama Picture on iPhone 4:
Okay, to do this, you’ll need:

An iPhone (duh! Quite obviously, eh?)
iTunes (latest is best)
iBackupBot (you can get it from here)

 Now, the process:

Step 1). Download and install iBackupBot
Step 2). Co

nnect your iPhone to your system and launch iTunes.
Step 3). Now, backup your iPhone via iTunes.
Step 4). Run iBackupBot. Find and open the iTunes backup file you just made, in iBackupBot. When the backup is loaded:
Step 5). Find this file: Library/Preferences/ and open it (on Mac, it opens. On Windows, you’ll need to use notepad)
Step 6). Now, you will have to add these lines of code somewhere in the middle of the file:


Step 7). Save the edited file.
Step 8). Now, right from the iBackupBot, restore the iPhone via the backup file.
Step 9). That’s it. Once you’ve followed the above steps, you will see the ‘Panorama’ option on the Camera’s Options. Use it!

While not many are aware that Apple has left the Panorama option hidden in the camera, many jailbreakers actually found it soon. However, in many cases, when the Panorama mode is used, the camera has been reported to get stuck.

With iPhone 4, and this non-jailbreak method, users have said that the camera on the Panorama mode works just fine and takes good pictures.

One of the new features introduced in iOS 5 was the ability to create keyboard shortcuts for common and often used phrases. This feature was embraced by many iOS users, and for some has become the most useful feature in Apple’s latest release of iOS. Many don’t know it, but OS X actually includes this same feature. In this video, I’ll show you how to find it and set it up.
