PassGen – Generate Secure Passwords On Your iPhone

PassGen is a free app available in Cydia that lets you generate secure passwords on your iPhone. This app probably won’t be too popular, but could be really useful for iPhone users that do a lot of FTP’ing or SSH’ing right from their phones. The one problem with PassGen that we noticed was that you can’t seem to copy the password after it’s been generated, which pretty much defeats the […]

Want to change Mobile Safari’s boring gray background?

Cool Animated Space Invaders LockScreen

We mentioned in our Cool Animated Fish Lockscreen post that there aren’t too many animated LockScreens on Cydia worth talking about. But here’s a pretty unique one that I recently came across.

Cool Animated Fish Lockscreen

There are not as many animated LockScreens on Cydia as one may think. But here’s a cool one I came across the other day. This runs pretty smooth on the 3GS (and 4 obviously), but I don’t know how if it would fair too well on a 3G. (Please excuse the Lacoste logo on my slider, that’s not included in MultiFish.)

We mentioned in our SSH’ing Into Your iPhone – Why & How? post, that we would follow up with a quick list of where some of the main directories (Photos, Safari Bookmarks, Winterboard themes, etc.) are located on your iPhone.
