Rovio has done it again! The company’s latest version of Angry Birds “Angry Birds Space” has just become the world’s single fastest-growing mobile game ever. Angry Birds Space was downloaded over 50 million times in just 35 days after its release. Yes, you read that correctly, 50 million freakin’ downloads.
Angry Birds has been on the App Store’s top charts since it was first released, but the new Angry Birds Space brings something new to the series’ fans. The anti-gravity space experience is like no other previous game and offers totally new and fun gameplay!

Have you ever had your iPhone stolen? Or, maybe you’ve lost your idevice and just didn’t want anyone getting into it. Well, the folks over at AatmaStudio have a solution: the self-destructing iPhone.
We’ve seen many crazy concepts and heard even crazier rumors, but even though this is very far-fetched, the video looks damn good. Check it out:
An awesome new jailbreak tweak was released on Cydia today that brings something we’ve been desperately waiting for: watching .gif images right from the Camera Roll. I’ve saved many hilarious .gif images from Safari only to find that I can’t watch them on the Camera Roll. However, a jailbreak tweak named Giffy by iOS developer IanP is about to change that.
After installing Giffy, you can simply open up the Mobile Safari app (or Alien Blue for all you Redditors out there) and find a cool .gif image and save it. You will then be able to simply watch any .gif image animate right from your Camera Roll. In fact, they even play faster in the Camera Roll than in Mobile Safari since they are saved on your idevice. But that’s not even the best part…
Earlier this year we posted a picture of smartphones before and after the iPhone. The image shows that to say that the iPhone wasn’t revolutionary is simply ridiculous. However, it appears that Apple was seriously considering a different design for the iPhone, one that included a physical keyboard…
Had Apple chosen a design other than the iconic one that was released, things may not have gone the way they did. Ex-Senior Vice President of Apple Tony Fadell revealed some very interesting information on The Verge’s talk show last night:
GEVEY’s Ultra 5.1 SIM interposer disabled due to Apple fixing servers, Apple N Berry issuing refunds
In the matter of only a few days, the iPhone unlock situation has completely turned upside down. The SAM method of unlocking an iPhone that was released recently no longer works after Apple fixed their activation servers. But wait there’s more….
We recently told you that there was a new version of GEVEY’s sim interposer that made unlocking iPhones much easier. Apparently, the latest GEVEY Ultra 5.1S SIM interposer also used the same exploit as the SAM method, which means that it no longer works as well.
If you have already unlocked your iPhone using the SAM method, consider yourself lucky, as it appears that the method is no longer working. Apple has apparently fixed the issue with its activation server that the SAM method was using to unlock the idevices.
A few of us here at iPD tried it this morning after hearing comments from our readers, and unfortunately, we can confirm that it’s no longer working (at least for us). However, there hasn’t been an official word from the iPhone Dev team yet.
It’s important to note that if you’ve already unlocked your iPhone using this method, please backup your activation tickets! You can either back up manually or using RedSn0w but make sure you freakin’ do it. If you back up your ticket, you will be able to unlock your iPhone even after restoring it.
What do you think? Did you unlock your iPhone in time?
Some people may not agree with all of Tim Cook’s decisions so far, but you have to give him props on the latest iPad’s release. The latest idevice has just been released in 9 more countries today. It is Apple’s fastest international product rollout ever, being available in 30 countries around the globe in less than 60 days of its launch.
The list of countries that the iPad launched in today includes:
- South Africa
Unfortunately, China is still missing from that list. The country is most definitely a huge market and can really help Apple’s sales (not that they aren’t already impressive).
So, do you live in one of the countries that just got the iPad? Will you be grabbing the new device?
