VirusBarrier- First ever Malware Scanner for iOS Devices


The world of Apple has been quite free of malware and safer, except a few threats that have often popped up. Incidences of malware have been low with both Mac and iOS. Intego, Mac OSX anti-malware maker has come up with a new scanner for malware in iOS devices. This new tool is called VirusBarrier. VirusBarrier will scan places like user’s dropbox folder, mail attachments and other locations which are directly exposed to the user. Thus, all the locations that are most likely to be affected by malware are scanned by this tool. This tool is an on-demand malware scanner. This means that it will not run automatically on the background, therefore, users have to run it manually when needed. The user has to hold the link to the file and select “Open in VirusBarrier”.

A question that comes to many minds is that what the need of such a tool is when malware does not affect iOS devices. The main motive of this tool is to prevent infected files from entering other vulnerable devices. The company explained the aim of the tool at a press release. The malware may pass on to any device at home or office, although it does not affect iOS devices. As malware can take any path to get into vulnerable devices so such a tool will prevent this from happening. The VirusBarrier can be purchased by downloading from the iOS App store. It is available for $2.99. This will grant you free updates of detection for a year. From then on every year you just have to purchase a license for an additional amount of $1.99 every year. Whether this tool is worth spending a few dollars is up to you. Though, common sense and little care are enough to keep away malware but another layer of protection is perfectly harmless.

Its Raining Apps at Apple’s App Store

Apple’s App Store is now believed to have more than four hundred thousand applications available for users having devices with iOS. AppShopper, a reputed iOS and Mac OS X app directory states that the App Store has 401,437 applications approved by Apple.

The former websites also allow the users the convenience to see the recent changes in the prices making it easier for them to make good judgements. These websites also boast of accurate of correct and accurate statistics.Apps at Apple store

The story of Apple’s App store is quite an interesting one as it is said that it was not originally meant to exist. Since the previous iPhone development model and its web-based applications did not gain much popularity, the company came up with the App Store model. Before this model existed the era of unofficial App Stores that were used on devices which had been jailbroken. This was the only means of getting full-fledged iPhone apps back then, until a year later Apple launched its very own AppStore. A Mac OS X compatible App Store was released with an update earlier this year, even though the favourite remains the iOS counterpart remains the more popular.

The growth chart of Apple shows considerable and commendable achievements. The store was launched three years ago in June 2008 with 500 apps, it displayed a good 1400% growth within 4 months in the number of apps available, and then a further 1200% growth a year later, having more than 100,000 apps. The number of downloads also increased from 1 billion to 10 billion by January 2011, in just a span of 1.5 years.

Today, all OS developing companies, basically competitors of Apple, have their own version of an App Store. The most popular competitor is the Android App Market, with more than 200,000 apps, half of what Apple has to offer, but then, the numbers just don’t stop rising.


You’ve Got ‘FakeMail’ : A Fake Email Sending App for iPhone

Another addition to the world of smartphone applications is FakeMail, an app powered by Cydia which lets you send emails from a fake email ID using an iPhone, an iPod Touch or an iPad.

Yes, sending emails from an email ID that does not exist has now become possible with this app. The receiver gets the email in the standard format, claiming that the mail is sent from the email ID that you enter. This app makes it as easy as it can get to send anonymous emails. Just enter the fake email address as the sender and the name and the address of the receiver, followed by entering the main body of the email message and clicking “Send”, and voila, you just sent an email from an address that doesn’t even exist.

Fake Mail App

There is no way in which the receiver can make out the email to be a fake mail as it is displayed in the standard email structure which provides for the display of the sender’s (fake) information and recipient’s details. This application will come handy for mainly three purposes, namely, sending confidential emails from a secret ID; keeping the sender’s name and details anonymous or for playing a friendly prank.

The only drawback of using this application is that there is no room for further follow up to the conversation as the email sent from the fake ID cannot be replied to. Since the email ID is non-existent, there is no inbox to receive the reply. The nature of this application, hence, makes it mainly usable for the purpose of playing healthy pranks on a friend or relative for a good laugh.

Using this application can lead to drastic consequences if not used responsible. The ability to pose as someone else can also lead to the user sending a controversial email using some other’s identity, causing actual harm to that person, which is a criminal offence. Therefore, it is strictly required that users exercise sheer responsibility and integrity while using this app.

FakeMail is available on Cydia’s BiggBoss repository. To be able to use this application on your Apple device, you will first have to jailbreak your device in order to allow the application to function (since it is not an approved by Apple). It is highly recommended that the unlocking of the device is performed by someone who possesses the basic skills.
