iBroken: Stop People From Using Your iPhone

Happy Friday everyone! Today we’re going to address a concern that some people have with their iPhones. Are you the type of person that is obsessed over the state of your electronics, and in particular your precious iPhone? Ever have little brothers or sisters or cousins want to play Flight Control with their sticky fingers?

How To Stop People From Using Your iPhone

We’ve all been in those situations when that certain someone wants to borrow your iPhone to “make a quick call” or “Google something” and they can’t because they either a) don’t have a cellphone or b) have a regular flip phone with no internet capabilities. How do you say “NO” without saying “NO”? Can’t muster up enough courage to say “N-O”? Easy! You activate the app iBroken!

iBroken is available in Cydia (jailbroken iPhones only) and what it does is simulate the “Connect to iTunes” picture on your iPhone. You launch this bad boy, then demonstrate that your iPhone is “having problems” and prove it by tapping on the screen to show that it’s “frozen”. The app will only exit if you press the Home button, so guard that button with your LIFE!
