Display Recorder, developed by Ryan Petrich and available for $4.99 from the Cydia Store, allows you to record your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad’s display. This app is terrific if you want to record your device’s display for a YouTube video, send a video of your recorded display to a friend, or record a video and download it to your computer so that you can edit it, such as what we use it for.
Display Recorder records directly to H.264 or MJPG/AVI for amazing HD quality, optionally records microphone audio, features on-device YouTube uploading, adjustable framerate and quality settings, hardware accelerated video encoding (meaning new devices will encode recordings faster than older devices), and includes a web site to manage your recordings. Simply enter the web server address (in the format of http://IPaddress:port) that’s displayed at the bottom of the app into your web browser.
Steps (once your iPhone is jailbroken):
1. Open Cydia
2. Search for “Display Recorder”
3. Download the app.
4. Congratulations! Display Recorder should now be installed on your device.

Airplay is most likely the most exciting iOS feature since multitasking. It has huge potential, and we’re still waiting to see what Apple will do with it, they already leaked a couple of details this week that will lead you to think good about it.
Apple told Fox News during a review of Apple TV that, they will open the feature to developers. They will definitely let apps stream audio and video over the air, which is awesome. Will Apple take it even further and allow apps to stream to an external monitor of sorts? We don’t know right now, but it sure is interesting.
Big apps like Hulu or Netflix restricting the use of the feature can’t be underestimated. This is uncharted territory when it comes to licensing deals, so it might not even be up to the developers.
So what do you think Apple will do? Let us know in the comments below.
TechGeec.com was given the opportunity to review another iFrogz product. The Earpollution ThrowBax headphones give you more bang for your buck. They provide you with bumping deep rich bass and smooth stereo sound. They come in a variety of colors consisting of red, lime green, blue, pink/white, as well as orange. You can’t get much better headphones than the Earpollution ThrowBax heaphones which retail for $29.99 USD.
Here are some of the main features of the ThrowBax:
Driver Unit: 44mm
Impedance: 32 ohms
Frequency Response: 5Hz to 20 KHz
Cord Length: 1.2M (roughly 4 feet)
These headphones offer magnificently painted metallic coated speaker cups along with metal side rails so that you may have the ability to adjust the size. The ThrowBax offer designated left and right channels with the cord only coming out of the left channel. This is a huge advantage because having only one cord to worry about lessens the chance of the cord becoming tangled. The headphones also have padded leather speaker cups to add extra comfort. The speaker cups are large enough to fit around one’s ears so that the is more noise isolation providing for better sound quality. The inside of the speaker cups feature an elegant Earpollution design. The padded leather headband features an embroidered Earpollution logo with matching side stitching. The color of the embroidery is based upon the color of the speaker cups.
As I said previously, these are the best headphones that you can get for the price. What many people do not realize is that headphones provide much better noise isolation as well as sound quality than you will ever get with a pair of ear buds. These headphones are definitely durable as they rarely show scratches and/or scuffs. The volume is even fantastic. Truthfully, these headphones are louder than the built-in iPod Touch speakers and the “old school” style of the ThrowBax is superb.
There are a few minor downsides, however. The main one is that the headband seems to have a bit less padding than I would like it to. If you happen to wear these headphones for possibly an hour or more, they may start to feel discomfortable on your head. Also, because the plug is larger than most, you may have a hard time using it with a device that has a case on it. The last flaw is that I find that the plug can come out about half way with the slightest tug. When this happens, audio will only be expelled through one of the channels (most likely the left).
Overall, if you are in the market for fairly inexpensive quality headphones, go for the iFrogz Earpollution ThrowBax. They provide amazing sound quality and style. Scroll down for some HD photos and scroll all the way down if you would like to see a video review of the headphones.
