iExploler and the annoying icon in my #iPhone

I used explorer to delete the ugly "iArabizer". The shareware application allows you to browse and modify files on iPhone


When I got my first iPhone, hyper stores where importing devices from places that actually has apple stores or authorized resellers. We were not enable at the time when iPhone 3G released to buy it from our tele-communication companies neither to use Arabic keyboard. It was not Arabic friendly back then! However I got mine as I was waiting for it just as the people slept in tents in front of the stores the night it has been released to buyers.

The ugly icon on first column, second raw in my iPhone home screen.

I looked into application called iArabizer it said that it add Arabic keyboard and it has the option to change the interface into Arabic, people who used this option faced several bugs caused by the application. Me on the other hand I only used the keyboard, and my device was working smoothly.

Then, a website called iPhone Islam claimed that the application is actually stolen from them. And the developer is providing it for free and asking for donation while they worked day and night to make it and sell it.

In a few time all this fuss ended right away, when apple provided the official support for arabic. I tried to delete the program and I just simply, normally did it. But guess what! The icon annoyingly return to it place in the next spring bored restart.

Update next to update the icon remained. Even after fresh install the annoying icon just kept annoying me more and more. And the ugly useless icon welcomed itself to move into my new iPhone 4

Yesterday i updated my iPhone 4 to iOS 5.0.1 and just had the feeling that i must kill this icon. I googled about it and i found were its located in the system’s file. I only then needed to an application to browse and edit the system’s file. I already know some of old complicated ones but i figured that there is might be a new product in the market. And there i found the shareware iExplorer.

When i opened the application a nice message came from the CEO of the company. Asking to share the application webpage on the social media as they lost their traffic when they changed the application name and url due to legal issues he said.

I found the application friendly and the message is nice and worth to share and thats why i wrote this blog post.

And yes, one more thing, Im glad to say that the annoying icon is no longer exists.


Never trust a free web hosting

A friend told me this few years ago, but I thought he was stereotyping the companies that provide free web hosting next to its paid plans. At the mean time I was amazed with the free service that provides, fast and zero ads web hosting supports FTP and databases, which means that I can upload my word press blogs on it. I needed the support several times and they were very cooperative, in fact I needed them to open the account it self and they helped me through it.

I established two blogs on this host for more than four years with no problems at all. Just on that day when they decided to stop supporting something on their free plans that allow to sever to connect word press to confirm API key. this meant that Askmit, the anti spam plugin is not functional anymore, right away my both blogs were subjected to huge spam attacks that killed both of them, I tried to reach the blog many times with no use .. I lost very valuable data for me, and at this point I remembered the mentioned advice after all this years.

now I’m opening a new blog with new name on word press servers itself, I thought that the perfect first post is to deliver this advice for those who still trust free web hosting … Please don’t !
