Possible to make a seperate APK/App?

iOS Programming - Fri, 03/16/2018 - 18:58

Hey guys. Let me tell you a quick story; my school blocked Fortnite off our Ipads. I was wondering if it was possible to download the APK and downloading it from cydia impactor. Will this work or is there another way I could use to install it without being blocked? Thanks.

Would a Mac Mini from 2009 be good enough?

iOS Programming - Fri, 03/16/2018 - 18:29

Found one for $100. I just want to start practicing creating IOS apps. Nothing big. Simple apps and 2d games as I'm learning plus ones I feel are good to go up in the app store. Yes I should practice on android first but for the price I thought it was a good deal. Thanks for any answers.

It hasn’t even been a fortnight since we learned that Fortnite: Battle Royale, Epic Games’ wildly popular multiplayer survival shooter, would be coming to iOS, and yet now it’s already on my iPhone and iPad, running far more smoothly than I’d expect from a freshly-minted beta. Only a comparatively small group of players currently have access, but what I’ve seen so far suggests that Epic wouldn’t have to do much to fling open the gates to the wider public. (You can sign up for the beta here.)

KantoPlayer 2.0.0 - $49.95

MacUpdate - Mac OS X - Fri, 03/16/2018 - 16:38

KantoPlayer allows you to do karaoke on your Mac. It supports almost all karaoke formats: MP3, MIDI, KAR, MP3+G, CDG, KFN, and MP4 video karaoke. It also allows you to record your voice over the song and convert your midi files to MP3 format. The software is free to try, but with a few limitations. The user interface has an efficient layout. Playlists can be created and populated with songs on separate panes, on the right side of the interface, where you can also build up a song queue. If you play a karaoke file, its lyrics will show up in the central region of the interface, but it is also possible to display them in a separate window, which can be useful if you wish to show the lyrics on a different monitor or with a projector.

Version 2.0.0:
  • New features added
