iOS 7 introduced filters, a cropping tool, red eye reduction and an auto-enhance tool to the Photo app's editing suite. iOS 8 has enhanced the Photo app's editing suite with several new features. Now you can straighten/rotate and fine tune by adjusting lighting and color levels all on your iPhone.
To edit a photo, simply tap the Edit button in the top right of the screen. Don't worry about ruining a photo, as you can always revert to the original later on.
The Pangu Jailbreak for iOS 8 has arrived with English support and full Cydia integration. Much like the original Pangu, the tool makes jailbreaking an iOS device incredibly simple. All devices officially supported with iOS 8.0 - 8.1.x can be jailbroken using Pangu. The Windows release will soon be followed by an OS X version for Mac users.
In the meantime, here is a complete tutorial explaining how to jailbreak iOS 8 with Pangu. To begin, make sure the iOS device is indeed updated to iOS 8.0 or later. In order to prevent problems, it is recommended to update from iOS 7 using the latest version of iTunes on a computer. Those with previously jailbroken devices should backup, then restore to iOS 8 to get started. Follow these steps to use the Pangu Jailbreak:
We've discovered a lot of horror-themed games while looking for the best Halloween apps this year. Here's a quick look at some of the games that caught our attention. We did not test all of these games. This is just a list of available new titles that have a horror / Halloween theme. You can also see a list of existing titles that have been updated with Halloween content here, and check out the trailer for Five Nights at Freddy's 2 here.

The game features large and detailed locations with dark dungeons and mysterious catacombs to explore, immersive music and beautiful HD graphics.
Time lapse photography is a filming technique that uses a lower frame rate for capturing video than is used for viewing it, resulting in a video that appears to be sped up. For example, you might record people walking through a park at one frame per second and play it back at 30 frames per second, resulting in something akin to a Benny Hill chase. Basically it is the opposite of slow motion. This technique is ideal for capturing motion that is too subtle for the human eye to appreciate, such as star movement, flowers blooming or clouds developing. It is also good for seeing long term progress, like watching the construction of a skyscraper, from beginning to end, in just a minute or two. iOS 8 has added this functionality to the Camera app, so now you can make your own time lapse videos with your iPhone or iPad.
Creating your own time lapse video is quite simple. Open your Camera and scroll over and select the "Time Lapse" option. Now all you have to do is tap record.
Team Pangu has finally released a full version of their iOS 8 jailbreak tool. Unlike the previous release, the new jailbreak comes with a Cydia installer. This allows users who jailbreak their device to easily access the Cyida app store which contains all the tweaks and apps created by the jailbreak community. Cydia has also been updated to version 1.1.14 to fix a few bugs and to add other improvements, like iPhone 6 support. Click here for step-by-step instructions on how to jailbreak iOS 8 with a Windows-only version of the Pangu Jailbreak tool. The jailbreak works on all devices running iOS 8 - iOS 8.1. There is no Mac version currently available, but that should hopefully change in the near future.
Popular jailbreak tweaks such as Zeppelin, WinterBoard and SwipeSelection have also been updated with iOS 8 support, and new tweaks like ForceReach, that take advantage of iOS 8-only features, are already being released to Cydia. Make sure you check out our weekly apps and jb tweaks recap every Saturday or follow us on Twitter to keep updated on the latest Cydia releases.
Developer Scott Cawthon has released a trailer for Five Nights at Freddy's 2. The official YouTube description doesn't offer any details about the new game, but it does include a link to the game's Steam Greenlight page. The good news is that the game has been greenlit by the Steam community. The bad news is that it's not coming to iOS devices first. This doesn't mean that the game will not be released to the App Store, it just means iOS users will have to wait a little longer to play it.
The sequel takes place at the "new and improved" Freddy Fazbear's Pizza. Freddy and his animatronic friends have been redesigned with new facial recognition technology, but they are still malfunctioning. You are once again the new night security guard, but this time around there are no security doors to keep you safe. Instead you have been supplied with an empty Freddy Fazbear head, to fool Freddy and his friends into thinking you're one of them.
Foursaken Media has really knocked it out of the park with its new match-three title, Puzzle to the Center of the Earth. Hopefully you didn't stop reading when you saw the words "match-three," because this game really breathes new life into the tired genre. First of all, Puzzle to the Center of the Earth is a platform game where you use match-three elements to dig your way to the center of the Earth. The goal of the game is to dig your way through colored blocks while looking for certain items. You do this by drawing a line with your finger to connect blocks of the same color to make them explode. This allows you to move and explore the caverns by swiping your finger on the gamepad located at the bottom of your display.
The main goal of each level is to dig your way down to the next level, but each cavern also has one gold star and secret switch that you can find. This is what gives the game its high replay value. Not only are there 80 levels to solve, but you will want to go back and try to uncover all the hidden items. This is easier said then done because you only have a certain amount of energy per level. And trust me when I tell you there is nothing more frustrating than finally finding the secret switch in a cavern to only run out of energy because you took too long!

When you receive a notification on your Lock Screen swipe left on the message to reveal the blue Reply button. Tap the button then type your message in message box and hit Send. Your response will then be sent without having to unlock your phone.
Snoozing an iPhone alarm in the morning just got more difficult. The jailbreak tweak EQUAlarm does its part to keep iOS users awake, by delivering a math equation. The ringing alarm cannot be silenced or snoozed until the correct answer is submitted.
Once installed, the difficulty level of the math questions can be selected from four choices, ranging from easy to insane. Entering the wrong answer means an alarm that keeps on ringing, while solving the problem reveals buttons to Snooze or Dismiss.
