Twinkle, my new favorite iPhone app.

If your a regular reader of my blog you already know I’ve Jailbroken my iPhone. I try and keep the software I run fairly up to date so I’ve visiting installer.app quite often to check for new updates. We’ll recenlty I’ve discovered a few nifty programs on the “Featured” section as soon as you launch installer.app, Wallpaper, Collage, and Tap Tap Revolution to name a few, but by far my new favorite is Twinkle.

Hello? Where are you?

Twinkle is a native Twitter client (yes you HAVE to have a jailboken phone to use this application). No more wasting txt messages to update Twitter, but whats really neat about this little beauty is that its location aware, meaning when you write a Tweet you have the option of having it display your current location. the downside? only users viewing your twitter updates on another Twinkle enabled iPhone can see your location.The Twinkle main screen Which honsetly is fine with me, I’m just jazzed at having a easier way to update tiwtter while on the go. The location feature is just a bonus.

But wait! Theres more!

Thats right they didn’t stop there they also added the ability to link a picture to your twitter post, but! again, the image can only be seen by another Twinkle enabled iPhone, other users can still see the text but not the image or location data attached to the tweet.

So what do I need to get Twinkle?

Easy! All you need is the following

  1. A Jailbroken iPhone
  2. Add “http://www.polarbearfarm.com/repo/” to your sources
    • Sources Icon
    • Click “Edit”
    • Click “Add”
    • Add above URL
  3. Then Twinkle will be on the Featured page at the beginning of installer.app
    • If not simply click “Install > All Packages” and scroll down to the “T” section you’ll see Twinkle there.

K2 Back!

K2 is back, but is RC5 out? nope, I did a bit of research and discovered the reason k2 was not working with WordPress 2.5 was actually the fault of the new WordPress 2.5 dashboard. While the new Dashboard is pretty impressive it now uses widgets.

Herein lies the problem k2 blocks the wordpress widgets to instead use its built in sidebar, now I love this sidebar. so the solution to getting k2 to function is to disable its ability to block widgets when displaying the admin screen. this can be done by modifying the widgets-removal.php located in:

wp-content/themes/k2b/app/includes

simply update the entire contents of that file to the following.

I’ve also noticed that in a few cases you will still receive errors when trying to view the admin panel. I was able to solve this by renaming the k2 directory to something different k2b for example. then under the themes section of the admin control panel reactivate k2.
