• What's New In Cydia: MarkRead, BiteSMS 5, NoLockScreen

    If you haven't done so already, check out our guides to jailbreak your iDevice! What are you waiting for? It's time to dig inside Cydia and see what's new this week, just be prepared for some slow updates, as Cydia has been extremely busy with traffic since Saturday's release of limera1n.

    If you're new to jailbreaking, check out our previous "What's New" articles, covering new apps and updates in Cydia.

    Mark Read

    "Ever wake up with an inbox full of Facebook emails? Annoyed by newsletters you're not going to read anyway? Going through all of them just to get rid of the red badge just takes too much time. This is why we invented Mark Read, an easy way to mark either your entire inbox or just the emails you want as read/unread, right within Mail.app."

    I couldn't have said it better myself. This is a tweak I have been looking/hoping Apple would add but it is quite clear that they have no plans to add this in iOS 4.2, so the folks of CocoaNuts (chpwn, petrich, and stephen) have developed Mark Read. Simply tap 'Edit' in your mailbox, then select the emails you want to mark off as read or unread and tap 'Mark' in the upper left corner. If you want to mark the entire mailbox as read/unread, tap 'Mark All'. It's that simple! Why Apple has not done this blows my mind.

    Mark Read is available in Cydia for $1.99.

    UPDATE: Now Officially Available in Cydia

    Not really much to say about this tweak. The name says it all. This tweak will disable your lockscreen (the slide to unlock part). It's a pretty cool idea and I'm getting use to not having my lockscreen. I could dig this.

    NoLockScreen is available in Cydia for FREE.
