How to install the genius media app that Apple banned from the App Store

Sat, 02/18/2017 - 11:00

What is Kodi and why should one want to install on the iPhone or any other iOS device? It’s a versatile media player that’s already quite popular with the crowds. You may have used it on other devices back when it was called XBMC. Unfortunately, it’s not the kind of application that Apple allows in the App Store, so you can’t really enjoy it on iOS devices unless you’re willing to jailbreak the phone, or pull off other tricks that would let you sideload the app.

If you’re looking to install Kodi on the iPhone 7 or any other kind of iOS device without jailbreaking, then you’re in luck. It looks like such a method is already available.

The method does work, and it’s as shady as you can expect. But if you can’t go without Kodi in your life, and you don’t want to jailbreak the iPhone 7, or can’t find a method that jailbreaks the phone, then you could always go for this option.

Discovered by Kodi Tips the trick involves navigating to a shady site — just because it’s in a language you don’t understand — and downloading an app to your iPhone.

Once that’s done, an error message will appear when you’ll try to run Kodi. However, you can fix it by simply choosing to trust the application from the phone’s Settings menu. Check out Kodi Tips full instructions if you really want to go through with the procedure.

Finally, if all else fails, there’s one other type of Kodi install for the iPhone that you can try, which doesn’t require a jailbreak either. You have to pretend you’re an app developer and use Apple’s Xcode to get the app running on your iOS device — Macworld has all the instructions, assuming the method is still available.

The internet is not happy with Trump's 'Southern White House'

Sat, 02/18/2017 - 10:53

Donald Trump has already referred to his club, Mar-a-Lago, as the "Winter White House," leading many to believe that his weekend trips to Florida would become a regular occurrence. In a tweet on Saturday, he called the club the "Southern White House" — and now people are even more convinced. On Twitter, critics are pointing out the already high cost of Trump's travels, particularly considering he frequently criticized President Obama for traveling. There's also the fact that dues at Mar-a-Lago just doubled to a cool $200,000 per year, making increased traffic at the resort profitable for Trump's business operation. And that's all separate from the security concerns.

Powers push for ceasefire, weapons withdrawal in eastern Ukraine

Sat, 02/18/2017 - 09:56

By John Irish and Andrea Shalal MUNICH (Reuters) - Germany, France, Russia and Ukraine agreed on Saturday to use their influence to implement a ceasefire and the withdrawal of heavy weapons from Monday in eastern Ukraine. Fighting has recently escalated between Ukrainian forces and Russian-backed separatists in the region, refocusing global attention on a simmering conflict that has strained relations between Russia and the West. "On Feb. 20 the ceasefire regime will start and withdrawal of heavy military hardware will also start ...

Sat, 02/18/2017 - 09:52

More than 680 Cubans have been deported back to Cuba since the United States ended its decades-old policy giving them preferred immigrant status in January, state media reported Saturday.

On January 12, then-president Barack Obama scrapped with immediate effect a 1995 policy that had given Cubans near-automatic entry to the United States if they managed to set foot on American soil, regardless of their visa status.

Jason Chaffetz and Mitch McConnell are the new 'Hardy Boys' except much worse

Sat, 02/18/2017 - 07:00

Rep. Jason Chaffetz, the chairman of the House Oversight Committee, has been doing a really great job not investigating some of the major controversies surrounding the Trump White House. Mitch McConnell, the Majority Leader of the Senate, has also impressively managed to avoid publicly denouncing or questioning even the most flagrantly unconstitutional executive orders signed by the POTUS.

Battle in west Mosul could see siege, mass displacement: U.N.

Sat, 02/18/2017 - 06:52

Iraq's U.S.-backed offensive against Islamic State in western Mosul could displace up to 400,000 civilians and involve a siege in the densely populated old city, the United Nations' Humanitarian Coordinator for Iraq said on Saturday. The military and security forces last month recaptured the eastern half of the city, Iraq's second largest, and are expected to advance on the western side in coming days. Western Mosul contains the old city center, with its ancient souks, Grand Mosque and most government administrative buildings.
