Couple of weeks back, Yahoo released a gorgeous standalone weather app for the iPhone.
When I first heard rumors about the possibility of Yahoo launching a weather app, I wondered if the company was little too late as there were so many awesome weather apps already available in the App Store.
Siri, the personal assistant feature that is available on newer iOS devices, isn’t as good as Apple would want us to think it is.

The latest update to Google Chrome on iOS added a couple of new features, one of which is AirPrint and Google Cloud Print support.
Another related feature that has been added to Chrome in the latest update is the ability to save webpages as PDFs to Google Drive, which can come in handy when you want to “archive” a webpage or simply store it for offline viewing.

Activator is an awesome jailbreak tweak by Ryan Petrich that you probably already know about. For those who’re new to jailbreaking, Activator lets you assign various actions that get called when a certain event, selected by you, occurs.

The “actions” list is equally diverse, letting you launch apps, toggle settings and is extensible via tweaks on Cydia.
