Assistant Extensions is a great new tweak that will allow you to open apps, send tweets and more via Siri. There are more and more tweaks released via Cydia every they and these allow jailbroken iDevices to get the most out of their devices. You could say that jailbreaks actually allow iOS to run the way it always should have run.

Since the release of the untethered jailbreak for A5 devices there have been more and more Siri tweaks released. Apple's voice recognition software has been the centre of so many developers attention since it launched with the iPhone 4S last Oc

tober. Jailbreaking allows using to enjoy some great Siri perks and these include allowing simple SBSettings-like commands to be activated using Siri. There are many more Siri tweaks including SiriToggles and the soon to be released Sireet which will allow users to send Tweets using Siri.

AssitantExtensions has been released however and this allows users to send Tweets, activate SBSettings toggles and open various different apps without having to touch your screeen. This new tweak is available free of charge from the BigBoss repository. If you have SiriToggles the developer of AssitantExtensions does recommend that you remove it even though no conflicts between the two have been reported. The features of AssitantExtensions do however supersede SiriToggles so you won't need it anyway.

If you plan on downloading AssitantExtensions you will need a jailbroken iPhone and there are plenty of tools that you can use to do this including Absinthe, Sn0wbreeze and more.

How to Sync Firefox Bookmarks with iPhone and iPad is a post from: iPhnoeStuffs4U.com
As such, it’s not possible to sync Firefox bookmarks with iPhone or sync iPhone bookmarks with Firefox because the iTunes library doesn’t have an option for that. You can however sync Safari bookmarks.
Of late, it’s been getting quite clear that quite a lot of users still prefer Firefox on their PCs or Laptops. The average household has become a combination of large-screen browsing (on PCs) and small-screen ones (on smartphones). When this is the case, syncing bookmarks becomes tou

gh if you used Firefox on the PC and Safari on the iPhone. But there are two ways you can solve this problem of syncing.
Here’s how to sync Firefox bookmarks with iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch:
Method 1 – Export / Import
In this process, you will export the Firefox bookmarks, import them to Safari and just sync. As simple as that.

On your PC, where you have bookmarks on Firefox, just export the bookmarks as HTML.
To do this, go to Bookmarks → Show All Bookmarks.
Now, choose the Import and Backup → Export HTML…
Save the file to someplace you can access fast.
Now, open Safari.
File – Import Bookmarks
Choose the file you just saved.

Now, just connect your iPhone to the PC and Sync via iTunes. Make sure Sync Safari Bookmarks is checked (under the Info tab for your iPhone on iTunes).
Method 2 – Firefox Home Firefox Home is a simple app you can download on your iPhone. (it’s designed for iPhone, not iPad, but works on iPad too). It works via Firefox Sync (which is a service that syncs your personal bookmarks and stuff on your local desktop Firefox to the cloud) so you will need to have Firefox Sync enabled on your PC.
Firefox Home is not a browser – but a syncing service which connects and syncs all your bookmarks to your iPhone. You can then open them via Safari on your smartphone. Firefox Home is available as a free download on the iTunes App Store. It comes straight from Mozilla Corporation, so it’s highly trusted.
Interestingly, Firefox Home can also keep track of your Tabs and comes with search feature that helps you search from your history, bookmarks etc. easily.

SAN FRANCISCO, MACWORLD/IWORLD 2012 — If your iPhone videos are so lame that even your loved ones won’t watch them anymore, we’ve got some advice for you.
Cult of Mac talked to Matt Dessner, co-founder of the Original iPhone Film Festival (OIFF),  about choosing a subject, keeping it steady, getting enough b-roll and what he calls the Golden Tip of Editing.
The OIFF is about to announce 2012 winners here; with a little practice you might win next year’s competition and a MacBook Air.

Cult of Mac: What’s the best way to shoot steady with

an iPhone?
Matt Dessner: Ahh, the puzzling question: “To mount or to grip?” Like many challenges, there are often several good solutions.
When shooting with an iPhone, it always helps to have something to steady the ship. One way to go is to use a mount like ALM’s mCam. I really like this mount because it has 1/4″ holes to put it on a tripod or mic stand and additionally offers so many additional spots to add a light, mic or anything else you can screw into a 1/4″ hole. Without going into a full-on review, I assure you it should be one of the first mounts to consider.
The other option is a lightweight run-and-gun grip, like one from Zacuto called the iPhone zGrip. It’s simple to use and you can literally point your iPhone and shoot with one hand — and get the steady shots you could never do unassisted and one-handed…If you intend to attach other iPhonefilmmaking accessories and build a rig, go mCAM. If you’re on the run and want something simple you can keep in your bag for those eyewitness moments – grab a zGrip.
CoM: What makes a good subject for an iPhone film – since you’ve got some limitations with the field, etc.?
MD: A good subject is always something the iPhonefilmmaker feels passionately about. Yes, it sounds a bit Tony Robbins or Hallmark-like, but  if you are not 100% committed your audience will pick up on it immediately. So when picking a subject to shoot, if your passion is in place then there are really no limitations. The emerging ecosystem of iPhoneFilmmaking accessories and apps are amazing and can provide a solution for most challenges.
The iPhone in many ways is like a blank canvas; as a filmmaking device it can be dressed up in many ways to achieve amazing cinematic imagery.
CoM: Where do you stand on the “zoom” issue – is using it good idea for an iPhone video or better to  take separate shots?
MD: This really relates to shooting style and what is the best way to capture a shot that forwards the story being told.
I’m a fan of separate shots. It’s just the way my mind works and the way I see a story being built. I actually visualize a storyboard in my mind and see the shots broken down in sequence.  Every shot is a unique step in the staircase of the narrative that fits in a certain spot.
Zooming has its place but it often is overused and reminiscent of home movies shot on camcorders. Now if zooming is something that is integral to your style of shooting, then I’d look into a lens adapter like one that encinema makes. You can that pop on a DSLR lens and really control your zoom without having to artificially blow up the frame with a digital effect.
CoM: Do you have any editing shortcuts/tips?
MD: I come from a post-production background having designed, edited and animated TV commercials in New York City. So post is one of my favorite parts of making a story come to life. Whatever the flavor of the month is in the production world, one rule holds true: “garbage in, garbage out.” That simply means that you can’t rely on the old adage “We will fix it in post.” You need to get good shots in the can.
So now here is the golden tip..wait for it,wait…OK here it is: When it comes to iPhonefilmmaking, make sure that when you offload your footage onto your drive (assuming you are cutting on a computer not the phone) you want to grab the UNCOMPRESSED footage off the iPhone.
This will ensure you are starting with the most pristine version of the digital file. A great app to do that with is the Photo Transfer App. You can pull the uncompressed raw files over to your mac and it works wirelessly. Just brilliant.
CoM: The best advice I ever got from a producer was “b-roll, b-roll, b-roll!” (meaning you can never have enough supplemental/extra footage), does this hold true for iPhone films? What makes good iPhone b-roll?
MD: B-roll is always great because it visually fills in holes that can act as a bridge between cuts/shots. Good b-roll starts with having it in the first place. Remember to remain a “first-time viewer” when making your story. People are not as familiar with your subject as you are. Bring out the details of the story by showing the viewer some of the things they would observe as if they were actually experiencing the shot in person.
Naturally, we don’t lock our eyes on one point of view when we witness and experience something. We look around, we notice…we take stock. We see that the blue collar worker we are talking to has rough skin on his hands from working all day outside. Or that the child eating a lollypop telling a story had thrown the wrapper halfway into his jeans pocket and it’s sticking out. Get a shot of the hands to cut away to during your edit! Get a close up shot of the wrapper poking our of the jeans pocket and use it – these details are the moments between the shots that engage us.
So b-roll can really elevate the production value and provide a deeper emotional connection for the viewer.

There are quite a few variations of the classic tile matching games on the iPhone or iPad, but this is easily our favourite. While the lack of any sort of multiplayer annoys, there’s a huge range of board layouts to work through, the controls work very well and you can choose from a variety of different tile faces (including classic movie posters). The price feels a little high, but this is nevertheless a solid translation of a decades old game.

The UIAlertSheet, and UIActionSheet API’s can be difficult and cumbersome to use – often requiring excessive amounts of source code with all the delegates, callbacks, and switches required.
Blocks can definitely make these components much easier to use, and there are a number of implementations out there.  Recently I received a submission of a block based library, and I liked this one quite a bit – mainly because of the added button types, and the simple syntax for programming buttons.

t on a control seen in a collection of categories and helpers from Peter Steinberger.
You can find the control on Github here, and Gustavo’s got a writeup on his blog.
Definitely a lot easier than creating UIAlertSheet’s and UIActionSheet’s with their API’s in the iOS SDK.
