‘ Paper ‘ the Best Facebook App ever seen


facebook has released their new iphone app called Paper to redefine the current newspaper trends . This app is now available from Apple’s App.if you are an facebook user from your iphone you should experience this app.because this is not a side project of facebook like messenger or other services .Facebook worked much hard for developing this app .
Paper’s Facebook feed is just a better-looking, more responsive version of what you’ll find inside the company’s main app. Every other section is a mix of recent and popular posts from the profile pages of Facebook's favorite publishers, curated by a small (and powerful) editorial team within the company. In Headlines, for example, you'll find posts from Time, the AP, The New York Times, Politico, and etc In Cute, you'll find a range of more curated posts from the likes of Grumpy Cat, Laughing Squid, and Zooey Deschanel's site HelloGiggle


  facebook  implemented fully revised new interface for this really does dispense with much of the stuff that associate with Facebook like companies trade mark and blue trim color everything is cleaner with a large content panel on the top and smaller horizontally – scrolling ones on the bottom, lots of big images and wonder full fluid animation effects are also enclosed in this app which gives entirely new reading passion to readers.Everything from swipes to pinch-and-zooms respond instantaneously and naturally, and images load quickly.


there is a big panel on the top and browsable smaller one below.even though the app still displays articles by giving you the same view you’d seen if you simply visited the site where it was published it shows in a less cramped full screen mode which makes for easier reading .and it provides options for saving and sharing news with your friends and all.
so why you are waiting download it now its self .

Thanks for coming by and taking your time to read this post :) I hope you have learnt something today. Now I'd love to hear from you. Got any views, thoughts and questions related to the post? I'm all ears here. Add your comment.

How to change System Font in iOS 7 with BytaFont 2


One of the coolest things you can do after jailbreaking your iOS device is change the system font.
So it was great to see BytaFont updated to version 2 for iOS 7 and 64-bit A7 chip.

  • Tap on BytaFont 2 from the search results (not BytaFont as that is not compatible with iOS 7)
  • Tap on Install, followed by the Confirm button.
Installing Font:
By default, BytaFont doesn’t include any fonts, you need to download them from Cydia.
  • Launch Cydia, and tap on the Sections tab.
  • Scroll down to Fonts (BytaFont 2)
  • Now you can install any font that are available in this sub-section  [note that only the fonts under this sub-section are compatible with BytaFont 2]
  • For the purpose of this tutorial, I select the Neuropol Font from the list, which is one of my favorite fonts.
  • Tap on Install, followed by the Confirm button.

Change Font:
That’s it, the font has been installed. All you need to do is select the font you’ve installed using BytaFont 2.
  • So launch BytaFont 2 from the Home screen
  • Tap on the Basic tab

  • Here you should see Neuropol as one of the options.
  • Tap on it. It will prompt you if you’re sure you want to proceed.
  • Tap on the Yes button. This will respring your device.
After the respring, you should see the font has been applied on your iOS device as you can see below.
Lock Screen Before (left), After (right)

Home screen Before (left), After (right)
Alternatively, check the video walk through where we show you how to change the system font:

You have the option to change the font in some of the stock apps such as Camera, iBooks and the keyboard via the Advanced tab.
If you want to revert back to the default font, you need to select BytaFont Backup in the BytaFont 2 app or uninstall the tweak. The More tab allows you to apply Arabic, Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Hebrew and Thai fonts.
BytaFont v2 is localized in Arabic, Chinese (Simplified and Traditional), French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Korean, Portuguese, Spanish, Vietnamese.
If you’re on iOS 6, then you can install BytaFont (v1.7.1) to change the system font.
Let me know how it goes in the comments below.

Add Files To iPhone Without iTunes Using VLC


Apple has always been known for putting restrictions on their users such as bluetooth connectivity availability  iPhone to iPhone only , Sharing files between iPhone and computer on same system where it was initially installed , Requirement of iTunes software for transfer of music between your iphone and computer etc. Nobody in this world want to live in any kind of restrictions. If you own a phone then it should work completely as you want it to work. Although it is not possible to remove all the restrictions from iPhone because developers of iOS firmware are very strictly concerned about the security of your iPhone and do not allow any app to take control over it and bypass the limits of apple still , there are some tricks which enable users some more functionality other than their default functions. Here I am going to reveal a similar trick by using which you can add your files to VLC Media player without using iTunes.

Sometimes there is a situation when you are at your friend's home and there is some good video song in his computer which you want in your iPhone but there is no iTunes installed in his computer , Now what to do ?
So the best solution to all such kind of problems is switch to VLC.


1. Firstly you need to have the VLC media player installed on your iOS device and also on the system from where you want the share the data .

2. Open the VLC for iPhone app and click on the button situated at the top left corner of the app as shown in following screenshot :

3. When you click on top left button , you will see a several options. Now , turn the WIfi Upload button ON and carefully note of the IP address and port combination the app assigns you.

4. Up to this step , you are all done with set up on your phone. Now open the browser in your computer and enter exactly the IP address with the Port number in the address bar which you have noted down earlier.

5. So this is the last step , here you just need to Drag and Drop the media file which you want to save in your phone  in this browser window and the file will be transferred to your iPhone within a few seconds depending on the size of file. 

So this was probably the most easiest and convenient way for transferring files between a computer without iTunes and your iPhone.

Tips And Tricks For Apple IOS 7


Apple has launched their latest firmware ios 7 with lots of new and exciting features , a cool user interface and a very attractive design and looks of icons. The latest version of Apple's mobile platform has been met with mixed feelings by critics, Apple has made it clear that this is the way it's going to be - no matter if you like it or not. With hopes that it's all a matter of getting used to, and that Apple has been polishing and improving its software since the early betas It is free and available for download from 18th September 2013. This new firmware is already installed by many apple users and they are using it happily but many of you dont know some hidden tricks of this new operating system.


  • Multiple pages of apps within folders.
  • The default weather app–shows animations of the current weather in your area.


  • The lag time when switching between apps “the old way.” While the animation does make for a cooler look, it makes the overall experience seem a little slower.
  • The new operating system makes his iPhone look like a Droid.




Apple ios 7 allows it's users to create many pages of apps inside any folder and to slide to switch between those different pages.

If you want to move apps between different screens the you should simply Tap and Hold the app icon , wait the phone to vibrate and then Drag the icon to desired screen where you want to place it and release the icon once the icon reaches place of your wish.


You can perform multitasking in ios 7 , thanks to the powerful processor which is always been a great feature of all apple phones. For experiencing multitasking feature in ios 7 just double click the home button i.e. the small round shaped button located on the bottom front on your iPhone and slide to easily switch between apps.


If you wish to close any application from the stack of running apps then you can simply drag that app upwards from the apps being displayed on the screen as shown in below screenshot.


The new swipe up feature for the iOS7 Control Center makes it much simple to swipe up and run control center unlike iOS6 where it needed  multiple clicks in order to reach control center . What used to be Settings > Brightness is now a swipe up from the bottom of the screen and a quick drag of a slider.

My favorite features of the Control Center are the flashlight, wi-fi settings, airplane mode , Bluetooth settings and screen orientation. It is much similar to that Notification Panel present in Android devices which gives freedom to user to change and manage the settings of phone anytime as per their requirements.The Control Center is available from any screen in iOS7, including the lock screen.

Here’s a full list of the features you’ll find in your control center:
  • Airplane mode
  • Wi-fi
  • Bluetooth
  • Do Not Disturb
  • Screen Orientation
  • Brightness
  • Music Controls
  • Airdrop and Airplay
  • Flashlight
  • Timer
  • Calculator
  • Camera


As similar to it's preceding ios , in the latest version of ios 7 the notification bar can be seen by swiping it down from the top of the screen. Here you can see notifications in several different categories such as TODAY , ALL , MISSED ,  


In earlier versions of ios , you had to scroll to the left in order to reach the last screen for using search feature. But ios 7 provides this search feature from any home screen. All you have to do is simply pull down the home screen and the search bar will be displayed.

I hope all these tricks will improve your experience of using new ios 7.

Top 3 Ways To Download Web Videos To iPhone For Free


iPhone users ever wanted to save videos from web to your phone ?
Many times there is a situation when one of your friend share some interesting or funny video in their Facebook profiles or send you link of Youtube to take a look of the video. iPhone doesn't provide any default application in iOS for saving web videos for watching them later while you are offline so far. Android users are more happy in this concern because they have number of apps available in Android Market for Downloading Videos From Web but it is not the case with iPhone users. Still there are a few good apps available in iPhone App Store to solve this purpose.

Here I am providing you top 3 Apps for downloading / Saving videos available on web to your iPhone.


For installing Download manager to your iphone , go to the Apple App Store and search for "Video downloader - download manager". Make sure that you include the '-' so the app will appear first in the list of results. There are many other similar apps available in App Store, so if you don't like this one, others work in  the same way.

The app is free to install so you can easily download it in your iphone. There is also a paid-for Pro version of the app, and you will see some pop ups prompting you to upgrade each time you launch this app, but the app continues to perform its job of downloading for you.


Launch the Video Manager app , default Browser of your phone will then open on help page. If you can't see it, swipe down to display the familiar address and search bar. Search for YouTube and then tap the site which you want to select from the list of results.

Tap on the magnifying glass button to search for video on YouTube. When you find the one you want to download, start playing it. As soon as you start playing video you will see a popup message asking you to Download video but in some other versions if you don't see any option for downloading video there would be an option for cache. It will save video to some different folder than downloads.

Video will be downloaded and saved to your phone.


VDownload  app has a built-in web browser where you can download or browse videos from certain websites at the same time. There are two ways to download videos using this app but these methods may vary from one site to another so you have to try both the methods.


While browsing the video , go to the video which you want to download and then tap on the middle button of browser present at bottom of the screen and then click on Save video.


In some websites you wont get the direct option to Save video. To download videos from such sites first you need to Play The Video and then you will get the option of Cache Video To Memory.

You can see your download progress by tapping on the Downloads button. Once it is finished, you can find and watch it under Videos. The videos saved in your phone will be with some Random names but you can simply rename them and save them to your gallery by using option Save To Albums.


MX Tube is another one of the best app for downloading videos from web. The best part is that it is supported by many lower versions of ios as well. This app is able to download videos to your iphone / ipod directly from web.
  • Run the MX Tube in your phone.
  • Search for the video you are looking to download inside this app.
  • Click on the desired video and select the quality in which you want it to be saved in your phone.
  • Once you select the quality , download will start along with a cancel button in case you change your mind.
  • After downloading , to view the video go to Videos tab under this app and enjoy.

I hope atleast one from the above given tricks will work for your iphone / ipod. But if you know some better tricks or apps for doing this task , feel free to comment below.
