First time accepted submitter jotaass writes “In news that are guaranteed to make the Linux gaming community (in particular, but not exclusively) excited, Valve has just announced that the Steam for Linux client Beta is now open to the public. A .deb package is available here. Interesting as well, they are using an empty GitHub repository solely as an issue tracker, open for anyone to submit, edit and track bugs, with no actual code in the repo.”

BBSettings: iOS 5 Notification Center Custom Widget Like SBSettings; But Comes With More Features

July 17th, 2011 07:05 admin View Comments

BBSettings

We’ve already seen a number of useful custom widgets for iOS 5 Notification Center such as Music Center, SpringPrefs, UISettings etc.

Manuel Gabele – developer of the unofficial Facebook widget - WeeFacebook sent us an email to tell us that he has developed a custom widget called BBSettings, which he says is like SBSettings but more powerful.

BBSettings custom widgets includes the following features:

  • Featured Apps You can easiely configure which are your most used apps.
  • Running Apps Shows you all current running apps.
  • System Info Shows you various device informations (Disk/Memory usage; Hardware). Allows you to kill all running apps.
  • Toggles Flashlight, Wi-Fi, Airplane, Bluetooth, Orientation Lock and Mute.
  • Preferences Configure your most used Apps.

You can checkout the screenshots of some of these features below:

If you’ve jailbroken your iOS device on iOS 5 using Redsn0w or Sn0wbreeze, then you can check it out by installing the .deb package (from this link) on your iOS device via dpkg.

We haven’t tried it out yet, but the ability to access these feature from any application by just swipping the status bar (via the Notification Center) in iOS 5 will be quite useful.

As always, please let us know what you think about this iOS 5 Notification Center custom widget in the comments.

Thanks Manuel for the heads up and keep up the good work.

WeeFacebook 2.0: Unofficial Facebook Widget For iOS 5 Notification Center

June 27th, 2011 06:01 admin View Comments

WeeFacebook 2.0

When custom widget WeeFacebook for iOS 5 Notification Center first showed up, we didn’t write about it as it looked like a misfit as it took up the entire real estate of the Notification Center, which we felt was too intrusive.

Manuel Gebele – developer of the jailbreak tweak seems to have realized it and has released WeeFacebook 2.0, which allows you to dynamically expand and shrink the widget.

Manuel writes:

Last week an iOS 5 widget named WeeFacebook was published. WeeFacebook allows you to show mobile Facebook in the Notification Center.

Now WeeFacebook 2.0 is available with a much better user experience. WeeFacebook 2.0 allows you to dynamically expand and shrink the widget so it does not fill the complete screen of the Notification Center.

You can checkout the screenshots of WeeFacebook and WeeFacebook 2.0 below:

The implementation of the slide up and slide down functionality in the custom widget is pretty cool. If you’ve jailbroken your iOS device on iOS 5 using Redsn0w or Sn0wbreeze, then you can check it out by installing the .deb package (from this link) on your iOS device via dpkg. As always, please let us know what you think about this Facebook iOS 5 Notification Center custom widget in the comments. [via Redmond Pie]
