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.

Useful iPhone cydia apps/tweaks

Below is a list of useful cydia apps/tweets which I use.

Auto3G

This tweak automatically switch on/off your 3G network when you lock your device so conserve battery when you are not actually using it.

biteSMS

SMS app which is much better than the default one

Fast Copy

A tweak would will speed up the UI display of the copy “floating buttons”

CyDelete

This tweak allows you to delete cydia apps directly from the springboard like normal appstore apps.
Five Icon Dock

This tweaks creates a possibility of maximum 5 icons on the dock.

Frash

This allows you to view/run flash content on your Mobile Safari. Check out my previous post for more details how to get it

SBSettings

This shows a list of toggles where you can easily toggle the different preferences switches without running the Settings App. You can even do it while inside an app (for example, changing the brightness while you are inside an IM app to conserve power)

Veency

This make your iPhone into a VNC server so that you can remote access it through a VNC viewer.

Data Counter for iPhone (beta)

Anyway for those who are keeping track of this blog for the updates on the counter apps

I’ve managed to come up with a Data Counter app for iPhone for jailbroken phone. Adding to the collection of SMS Counter and Call Counter.

You can get it from the blackfacility repo:

Would really appreciate if you guys can let me know whether it works for you, or any comments, suggestions.

Thanks!

Also check out Blackfacility for more updates

Releasing SMS Counter and Call Counter

Been really busy – which explains the delay in the email for the beta test.

Anyway, I decided to release SMS Counter and Call Counter. It should be up on bigboss repo once we settle the admin issues.

If you want to get it immediately, please visit

Blackfacility.com

Basically just add this cydia source : http://www.blackfacility.com/cydia and search for SMS Counter and Call Counter

There’s also the descriptions of SMS Counter and Call Counter

SMS Counter & Call Counter beta test

I’ve finally finished Call Counter and SMS Counter.

Please email me/reply this post if you are interested to beta test it. (If nothing major goes wrong this would be the final actual app)

I’ve decided to make it a paid app (Fully functional for 10 days).

But beta tester will get a much longer fully functional period 🙂

What’s new?

  • Numbering bug fix
  • Keeping track of data even after the sms/call records are deleted
  • Able to keep track of calls made during certain period and disregard other periods (i.e. you can exclude weekend calls!)
  • Counting SMS more than 160 chars as more than 1 SMS even though it is a single sms
  • App Badge (for sms counter) which tells you how many outgoing smses you have sent for the month. (I didn’t include this feature for call counter because calculation for exclusion is rather inefficient and it might take up a lot of battery life if we update the badge at real time)
  • Simpler interface
  • Faster (if you are not having any exclusion periods)

Progress on SMS Counter/Call Counter

After much procrastination, I’ve decided to go back and fix up some of the bugs / add the features requested by you guys. I hope I managed to fix the “number” bug that some are facing in this coming release.

If there’s anyone is kind enough to test out whether the new bug fix, really fix the numbering bug, please leave a comment/send me an email 🙂

What to expect:

  • Numbering bug fix
  • Keeping track of data even after the sms/call records are deleted (haven’t really found a efficient solution for this yet, but I’m working on it)
  • Able to keep track of calls made during certain period and disregard other periods
  • Counting SMS more than 160 chars as more than 1 SMS even though it is a single sms
