Tweak that allows you to have the “Pull to Refresh” feature on default iPhone mail app

I just did up a tweak which allows you to have the “pull to refresh” feature (similar to that one on twitter, facebook, etc).


it’s a free tweak and you can get it from blackfacility repo or big boss repo (should be available within 24 hours)

Check out here for more details

If you find this tweak useful or have suggestions, feel free to send me also 🙂

Features you probably didn’t realised on you iPhone : Note Syncing

Did you realize that every time you create a new note, it seems to always access the internet even though you do not have any apps running in the background?

Note the network activity loading indicator on the statusbar.

Apparently, if you set up your email client (assume the mail server support IMAP), in my case gmail, it will automatically turn on syncing for notes.

So each time you modify your notes (or create/delete notes) in the default Notes app, it will save this changes to your mail server.

For example, if you are using gmail, the Notes app will create a Notes label and all the notes will be saved as entries having the Notes label. However, the process is one-directional, so you can’t modify the notes in your Gmail.

Of course, if you prefer not accessing the net and not syncing the notes, you can turn off this features in the Settings app under every email acount.

Bandwidth Meter feature

Posted this on blackfacility blog but I thought I will duplicate it here too.

Managed to do out a bandwidth meter feature which allows you to see the current data transfer speed. This feature should be available in data counter in future release. At the moment I’m still testing the battery usage and stability, and also fine tuning the UI.
