PDF Print E-mail

iCloud became an integral part of the iOS after release of iOS 5. It certainly is a pretty convenient service to have, especially if you own more than one iOS devices. With iCloud, the photos and apps on your iPhone automatically appear on the iPad and iPod touch you own (check our full review here). Apart from that, it is a good way of backing up your data. However, with iCloud come certain annoying nuisances, with one being the syncing of items that you don’t want to go to the cloud, thereby cluttering up the storage and making it difficult to find the thing you were actually looking for. Usually, when you take screenshots on your iPhone, you probably won’t want them to go to iCloud, as they are mostly for temporary usage. Screenshot Dam is a simple Cydia tweak that recognizes screenshots as separate entities from other photos, and doesn’t allow them to sync with the cloud.

Screenshot Dam Many iOS 5 users have complained of the annoying syncing of screenshots with iCloud. If you are one of those users who don’t want their iCloud storage to be cluttered with screenshots, all you have to do is go to the BigBoss repo in Cydia, and download the new tweak named Screenshot Dam. After installation, the tweak will prohibit any screenshot from going to the cloud.

The prohibition of screenshot syncing doesn’t mean you will not be able to upload screenshots to iCloud ever again. If you want, you can manually send them to the cloud like any ordinary photo. After the installation of Screenshot Dam, there will be no icon added to your iPhone’s Springboard, and it doesn’t have any customizable settings, either. All irritated iCloud users must give this free tweak a try.
