There are tons of things that Apple could learn from Apple - both minute details of iOS that could be tweaked to be more beneficiary and also huge changes that could be pushed by the Cupertino-based company. While it's not anything iOS is desperately in need of, RapidLinks is a handy jailbreak tweak.
Now available on Cydia for $1.99, Reveal is a new jailbreak tweak that further enhances the functionality of Apple's new notification system. While Notification Center is a certain improvement over the obtrusive blue boxes that previously plagued iOS, some may argue that the current is a bit limited.
Just yesterday, a concept was posted on YouTube showcasing an intuitive text editing method that many people hoped Apple would eventually implement into iOS. Although Apple's view on the concept won't be evident until future iterations of iOS, a jailbreak developer has turned the concept into real life in the form of SwipeSelection.
Writer Michael DeLisi and I have spent the last weeks questioning the availability of the ability to somehow run multiple applications at one time on the iPad. While it would increase the functionality of your iPad, it would also be an awesome step in furthering the potential of tablets. The ability to do so is now here in the form of a respectable jailbreak tweak.
Dependent on which device you own, you may or may not want to update to Apple's newly released iOS 5.1 if you want to keep your device in the state that's it's currently in. Read down below for information about your device and whether or not it's safe to update.
As many of you are probably already aware of, the promised and anticipated untethered jailbreak for Apple's A5 devices was released just a few days ago and, though it currently was only available for Mac users, there's also now two ways to jailbreak when on a Windows PC.

I never did get the point of jailbreaking your iOS device to then go and download a paid tweak from Cydia, but this next addition that you can download really makes the difference. Something that I've really been wanting for iOS is an easy way to reply to text messages without quitting my current open process; an annoying task to exit your applications every time you decide to simultaneously get social. Messages+ for jailbroken fixes that issue, which really makes me want to jailbreak my 4S. Unfortunately, I can't do so with an untethered jailbreak, quite yet.
If you recall around the same time last year, people all around the world were complaining about their alarms not going off, and they were eventually reassured by Apple that the problem would resolve itself. Similarly, according to Engadget, the problem is occurring for many users this year who are either stubborn to update to iOS 5 or simply aren't able to and are stuck with iOS 4.2.1.
Even though 19 year old Comex, otherwise known as Nicholas Allegra or as the mastermind behind JailbreakMe.com, isn’t quite allowed to reveal anything about his upcoming internship with Apple, which we previously posted about, he was kind enough to take questions publicly and answer them as well.
