Aeternum gives jailbroken iPhones the Apple Watch UI

Aeternum gives jailbroken iPhones the Apple Watch UI

Those enamored with the Apple Watch's UI can now bring it to their iPhone, as long as it is jailbroken. Called Aeternum, this Cydia app builds upon previous offerings to present users with the Apple wearable's smooth floating interface, complete with solid animations, the ability to rearrange and remove icons, and a nice dock at the bottom of the display. Aeternum isn't the first tweak to do this, with WatchSpring before it bringing about a similar version, but it is arguably the best available thus far.

Once you used iMessage with your phone number to accept messages, you were sort of stuck there. You couldn't switch to an Android phone, for example, and expect to keep getting messages - iMessage continued to get said messages, even if you weren't using iMessage. Apple released a tool to fix this - you can now de-register numbers from iMessage. Apparently they did not release said tool fast enough, as Judge Lucy Koh is on the case.

Nintendo easing up: it’s time to go mobile

Nintendo easing up: it’s time to go mobile

It may finally be time that Nintendo loosens its iron-tight grip on regions and accessibility for their many ultra-popular titles, characters, and games. The first baby step in this process is the opening up of regions for Amiibo. These tiny figurines are not region locked, as was previously suspected. Now if the ultra-popularity of Activision's similar gaming enterprise, Skylanders, is any indication, we can hope, pray, cross our fingers and toes, for mobile applications of Nintendo power next - Android, iOS, Windows Phone, the works.
