Since Apple released iOS 7, there hasn't been a jailbreak available for it -- Until now. But it doesn't come with a recommendation from Leo. There's only ever really been one reason to jailbreak an iPhone, and that's to install apps that haven't been approved by Apple. Instead, all previous iOS jailbreaks have come with an app store called "Cydia," which is well-known and fairly safe, or at least as safe as a jailbroken phone can be. The new iOS 7 jailbreak, however, comes with an unknown secret Chinese app store installed.
Frank has a Google Nexus 7 and has been using tethering. He updated the OS to KitKat and the tethering option has disappeared. When he takes the SIM card out, it reappears, but when he puts it back, and it disappears again. Leo says that it's likely AT&T doing that. They want to charge him for hotspotting and tethering. If he doesn't pay for it, they're not going to let him do it. It's also happened to T-Mobile users. Some solutions will require him to root his tablet, which is certainly possible.
Dan is looking for a cheap smartphone for his mom and wants to know what Leo thinks of the Motorola Moto G. Leo says at $180 without contract, it's a great, inexpensive phone. It's largely the same as the Moto X, except for the screen.
Allie is thinking of getting an Android tablet, but she's having trouble connecting her laptop and her Samsung device. Leo says that Allie needs to download a Samsung utility called KIES. It will connect with her phone and update drivers. Leo says it can be tricky to connect her phone to the laptop to move data, though. That's why Apple and Android have both moved to connecting over Wi-Fi. Leo also recommends getting DoubleTwist.
Scott needs a drawing program for his Android tablet in order to sketch out maps and diagramming. Leo looks to the chatroom and the consensus seems to be that there's an AutoCad for Android called "AutoCad 360." It's free at the Google Play Store. He'll need to pay the $5 a month fee to create new drawings, though.
Aaron has updated his Samsung Galaxy S3 and now his battery life has decreased. Leo says it may just be that the phone is older and the battery has diminished some. The phone isn't old enough to have battery life issues, though. So it's likely that there is a bug in the update that's causing some programs to run in the background. Doctor Mom in the chatroom had the same problems and suggests turning on power saving mode in Android.
