  • Application Enhancer


    Application Enhancer (APE) is a software program released by Unsanity for Apple's Mac OS X operating system. Application Enhancer provides a framework that allows third-party developers to write "haxies" for Mac OS X. It also provides a daemon to load haxies when certain applications are launched. These haxies, or plugins, are known as application enhancer modules, or APEs. Once the APE is loaded by the daemon, the module modifies the behavior of an existing application. Examples include allowing the classic Mac OS WindowShade behavior, or adding/removing Mac OS X's brushed aluminum theme to/from all applications. Application Enhancer is freeware, but modules may be distributed as freeware, shareware, or commercial software. A license for the Application Enhancer SDK (required by developers to deploy haxies) is $100 for shareware products and $1000 for commercial products.

  • IOS jailbreaking


    The Cydia app on a jailbroken iOS 7.iOS jailbreaking is privilege escalation for the purpose of removing software restrictions imposed by Apple on iOS, tvOS and watchOS. It typically does this by using a series of kernel patches. Jailbreaking permits root access to iOS, allowing the downloading and installation of additional applications, extension, and themes that are unavailable through the official Apple App Store. iOS jailbreaking dates back to the original iPhone in July 2007. Apple has responded with updates to iOS: patching exploits and upgrading hardware. Jailbreaking communities have not been legally threatened. The legal status of jailbreaking is unclear in most countries; while many prohibit tampering with digital locks, they tolerate jailbreaks that do not infringe on copyrights. In 2010, 2012, 2015, and 2018, the U.S. Copyright Office approved exemptions allowing smartphone users to jailbreak their devices. Due to the gradual increase in security in new iOS versions, hackers were unable to create a jailbreak for the latest release (until Ian Beer released async_wake), iOS 11, causing jailbreaking to temporarily lose prominence among users, with two of the three main Cydia repos, which ship default with Cydia, being archived and no longer accepting new packages or updates to existing ones. Multiple iOS 11 jailbreaks are currently in development.

  • AppZapper


    AppZapper is an application for Apple's macOS developed by Austin Sarner and Brian Ball. The software is an uninstall utility which extends the method of uninstalling in macOS, which is dragging the application one wants to uninstall to the trash. By dragging and dropping an application to uninstall in AppZapper, the application searches for additional files residing in directories other than that of the original application, such as preference files and package receipts, the user is then able to select unwanted files and delete them. Apart from the core functionality of AppZapper, other features of the application include a safety system which protects system files and user designated applications from being deleted and a log of uninstalled applications. AppZapper is available as Shareware, which will block itself after "zapping" five applications. The current version 2.0 only supports Mac OS X 10.6.2 or later. The old version 1.8 of this software can run on Mac OS X 10.4 and 10.5.
