Best iOS 5 Features Now
« on: August 03, 2011, 11:15:27 PM »
Just a little thread I thought I'd make to help people out who want ios 5 features without upgrading

Some of these work with iOS 3, but this is intended for iOS 4

VIDEO DEMO COMING SOON!!!!

Notification System:

Notifications:
I use mobilenotfier beta 5, as it gives you the exact same functions as iOS 5 notifications, the only main function that it does not have is the slide the notifications to reply, open, etc.


Notification Center:
Lockinfo with iOS 5 theme is the best replacement, you can download plugins to make it exactly like iOS 5, but the only thing that you cannot do is have the moving stocks widget, and the slide weather widget for forecast
VS.

Wireless iTunes Syncing:

This is pretty much self-explained, Wi-Fi sync has been around for a long time, and works almost just as well, except it does not sync as smoothly as iOS 5's does, as iTune's locks up when syncing with Wi-Fi sync and it is not compatible with iPhone 4, iPod touch 4 or iPad 2


iOS 5 Safari:

Reader Function:

What is the point of safari's reader function, you cannot even view the pages offline, but with this app called Instapaper, you can save an entire web page at a size of even 20 pages and unlimited different web pages to read offline at anytime that is convienent for you


Tabbed Browsing:

There are already plenty of browsers out in the appstore that are mostly free I dont get why apple would try to add it now lol, I prefer atomic web browser though, as it has almost every feature of a desktop browser and is completely customizable


Private Browsing:
There are lots of apps for this in Cydia, but the best one is Covert, not much to say about private browsing lol

Fully Featured Camera:
Your best choice for this is camera+ as it has every feature that the ios 5 one has and more but it has the shudder sound removed... The way you can easily fix that is to download snaptap from cydia that re-enables it


Reminders:
Although Soltmeal's is pretty much perfect, an alternate that has every feature from the ios 5 reminders app is remember the milk, it has been out for a while, and easily the most popular reminders app in the appstore, and its FREE!!!! You can also set priorities to how important the reminder is...


iMessage:

Although the messenger in iOS 5 has many unique features, there are hundreds of messenger apps in the appstore that let you sent messages over wifi on an ipod touch, i prefer TextFree with voice it also phone calls that you can make for free


List of apps used:

MobileNotfier beta 5
Activator
Atomic Web Browser
Camera+
SnapTap
Instapaper
Wi-Fi Sync
Remember the milk
Text Free with voice
Covert

If you have any questions, just pm me or simply reply ;)

ENJOY ;D ;D ;D

THREAD CHANGELOG:
Since this is such a long thread, I thought I'd make a changelog so you dont miss anything

EDIT: Added Private Browsing Feature under iOS 5 Safari section
EDIT: Downloads coming soon
EDIT: Added MobileNotifier's debs

Actually Mobile Notifier 0.3.3-1 is compatible with iOS3, but it uses tons of ram and crashes often, but it works. The deb file is in the media section.

Yeah I tried to use theos but it isn't clear how to use it and the wiki is no use. The source code isn't super hard to understand, but the problem is if we use Mobile Notifier it will use at around 5 megabytes of ram because of its memory leaks. It would also crash to safe mode often. Maybe someone could port Beta 5 to 3.1.3?
