iOS 5 Review

Leave a comment

Alright! So I LOVE Apple! I am definitely an Apple nerd! Let me start this, iOS 5 is AMAZING. First for this, is iMessage. I have fallen in love with iMessage! You can talk to any other iOS 5 device free of charge! You can see when the other person has read your message, when they’ve been delivered to their device, when they’re typing back to you! I think its just awesome! Its so clean, and has a very nice theme. You can set ringtones! Buy them from iTunes or make your own! (Ill explain in another post)


Next is the notifications. I absolutely love notification center, the lock screen notifications and the non annoying top notifications. The first two pictures are the lock screen. You can see me sliding the application icon, this will take me directly into the app when my device is unlocked, for those who don’t have a passcode, it just unlocks right away, and goes directly into the app. On the picture of my home screen, you can see the new notifications pop up. They are very nice looking, and they don’t stop you from what your currently doing. You can also change these new notifications if you’d like. You can go back to the old ones (which have a new black theme), stay with these new ones, or have none at all! Now heres what i think is just awesome. Notification center. With just one swipe downward from the top of your screen, on any place, application, screen, ANYWHERE! you slide down notification center. It gathers all your notifications until you either delete the app notifications, or open it. You also have a local weather widget and a stocks widget, which you can turn off any time.



Next up! iCloud and wireless syncing! Now, when you unlock your iOS 5 device for the first time, it will ask you if you want iCloud. CLICK YES. It automatically backs up your device to the iCloud servers, it backs up every setting, app, home screen, and all! You just set up a FREE account, comes with an email that you choose the name of! And- every picture you take is automatically sent to photo stream, and when you set up iPhoto with it too, all your pictures go directly to iPhoto and any other iOS 5 device. iCloud is great for all devices, because whatever you do on one, you pickup on another! Now, with wireless syncing, (you don’t need iCloud) whenever you lock your iPod and charge it, it syncs to your iTunes automatically. Or you can do it on your own, when you want to over WiFi.


I bet you didn’t know iOS 5 has a built in dictionary! When you highlight a word, it will show the Select, Select All, and now when you select that word you can define it. Click the right arrow above a highlighted word and it will say define. Click that and it brings up this BEAUTIFUL dictionary, that works offline.


Newsstand, I think you’re amazing, but i wish i could put you in a folder. Theres already a lot of Newsstand subscriptions! But, with Newsstand, its just a folder, but it shows up in your multitask tray like an app. You can’t even put it in a folder!


RINGTONES! I just love these, and had to show off, so i posted a picture of the ringtones I have. And because I have a Lady Gaga obsession, these are mine. 😀


Reminders, they’re okay. On the iPhone they’re AMAZING. But on the iPod touch, its just another alarm clock app to me! You can only tell it to remind you on this day, no location. I understand, it won’t always have WiFi, but it can still track itself using the WiFi near you thats locked right? i thought reminders for iPod was pretty pointless.


Theres TONS of other features. Over 200! Like over the air updates, private browse on Safari, theres just so many! These are my favorites and not too well liked features. I think getting iOS 5 is definitely worth it though. Have fun!:D

Jailbreaking iOS 4

Where? On your iPod! What site? Is it illegal? NO! A law was passed specifically for this that makes it legal! Does Tyler suggest it? No. It slows down your iPod alot and the battery goes bad! I recommend not to! Maybe with a 32 GB or 64 GB.

Jailbreak iOS 4 Without A Computer


Put in your iPod’s Safari. Go down to what looks like a lock screen. Slide the lock. Bam! It will take about 5 minutes possibly more. DO NOT EXIT SAFARI UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE EVEN WITH  MULTITASKING!

Make an ipod/iphone/ipad stylus!

Items required: pencil, foil.

Wrap the pencil in the foil and flatten the side you want to use. Flatten good so you don’t scratch your device. Flattened side should be the size if the eraser on the pencil. And done! Stylus for your touch screen device!

I was talking to a person on this application. Turns out wherever their from they talk crap about Americans! Here’s the chat. START AT THE BOTTOM
what do u mean?? Guess u all amricans are stupid and fat


That sucks and lol I don’t think u need great grades to be an actor.. Most are stupid anyways hahaha


Well a tip to u is , have fun but still study hard. i dont like studying either but i still hav to do it cause knowledge and good grades are so important. i wanted to be a doctor but u need the highest grade in everything to get in which i dont have. so now my dream cant be true 😦


Hahaha lucky! I don’t like reading so I have a hard time studying… I used to be all perfect and smart then I went to middle school…


Well u seem more mature than what i was. I was really wild and crazy and was just having so much fun. But now i regret that i didnt study more. the grades wasnt important though but i didnt get the knowledge which was important in high school. and now its totally crazy that inext year will graduate become an adult and move from home


For me my parents friends actually comment on us how were so great and not crazy. Like the other day my friends were throwing popcorn and I told them to stop and they didn’t so I picked it up.


Yeye, im that too but i try to become more mature and not act like im 14.


Lol I can be mature and I can be immature at times and ur my older brothers age well close he’s 18..


I dnt know , i just think its hard to talk with too youbg people , i mean ure as old as my little brother and his not mature at all


I catch ppl that r all diff ages even 13. And I’m too young how?

Uhhhh. No. What’s wrong with 13 I’m not stupid enough to give my address or city. How old r u.
