[iPhone] Met Office No Adverts

Met Office No Adverts

A handy free app supplied by the United Kingdom's main weather folk, which allows us Brit's to see the up coming weather along with some precipitation overlays. Though this app does come with a banner at the bottom of the screen - which even though it's only small, it still annoys me. Here's yet another simple/piss easy way of getting rid of it.

Requirements:
- Jailbroken iPhone
- Flex 2
- Met Office App (Dur!)

What To Do:
** I am hoping you have some basic knowledge of Flex? **

1) Add (+) a new App and choose... [read more]

[iPhone] TVCatchup No Adverts

TVCatchup No Adverts

TV Catchup, like a load of apps these days is getting more pants by the minute - mainly because "broadcasters" don't want them streaming their channels ... welcome to the digital age people! Welcome.

Also most of these sponsored messages and normal commercials are constantly cut-short. If that happened here in the UK, advertisers would go mental!

Dale's Ad Break (Episode 1: January)

Good morning everyone. I was bored the other day and got an idea when watching Sky TV at stupid-o'clock in the morning to film myself introducing adverts - I think the program's called Commercial Breakdown. Simple idea and not really much is needed. However A) I can't present to save shit and B) My camera is a cheap 640*480 VGA thing, so the quality of me is awful. I was due to get a decent camcorder before Xmas but it seems Argos doesn't seem to stock it in any of it's local stores within a 10-15 mile range... so I... [read more]
