One essential app in our beloved iPhone is , of course, MobileSafari. But , what can it do for you? How efficient are you when you are using it? Let’s take a look on how we can boost its features, and make you a more efficient user.

How can you do that? With just one pack of addons found in Cydia. You can find the package on the iSpazio repository and it is called Safari Addon Plugins. This package adds a variety number of new bookmarks. They are javascript that will allow users to do a lot things in Safari, like :


  • Tabulate – open link in new tabs
  • Copy-Paste – the new method to copy and paste offered by PasteBud
  • Find in this page : search words in a page
  • Translate to english : automatically translate the site you are visiting in english
  • Open in new tab : similar to tabulate
  • Image search : search for images in google Google Images with just one tap
  • Search in WikiPedia
  • iTransmogrify : first method to play flash videos in MobileSafari
  • Find similar sites
  • Dictionary
  • Display all images : shows only the images on a page

TABULATE

When you run Tabulate, the little corner box with the orange flag icon appears, indicating that Tabulate is active on the page. As you scroll the document, this corner box moves with you, showing you how many links you’ve flagged. When you’re ready to open those flagged links, just tap this corner box.

COPY AND PASTE by PasteBud

This is the new feature that allows you yo copy and paste between MobileSafari and Mail and MobileSafari and MobileSafari. For more info check the review i did a couple of days ago

FIND IN THIS PAGE

This is something that you are used to . Nothing new, and nothing to worry about. Just open the bookmark, type in the word that you are searching for and voila.

TRANSLATE TO ENGLISH

Of course not all pages on this world wide wide wide web got their content written in english. And if you dont speak other languages , you need a translator. Well this addon is the google translator and it the same with the one that i got on my blog ( see the sidebar ) . The translation is not accurate ( at least from Romanian to English ) but , at least you have this option now on your device, and you can get a slight idea about the content on that page.

OPEN IN NEW TAB

Now this one is similar to tabulate, but for some people this might be better. When you are on a page, activate the bookmark and everything that is a link on that page will have a icon next to it. That icon allows , when tapped will open that particular link in a new tab.

iTransmogrify

Now this is the feature that most of you  will be very excited about. When you are visiting a page that has a flash video on it, you will get the missing plugin icon. Well not anymore ; turn iTransmogrify bookmark on, and you will be able to view the video. ( the video will be displayed on the page, but once you will press play, it will take you to the youtube player ) ( i made my blog compatible with iPhone, and the video size on my blog is wayyyyyy bigger than the iphone layout of my blog…. but you get the idea ).
