Screenshot Dam Prevents iOS Screenshots From Entering Your Photo Stream [Jailbreak Tweaks]



By making your photographs available across all of your devices, Photo Stream makes it easier than ever to share your holiday snaps with your friends and family. However, the experience is ruined somewhat when your stream gets cluttered up with screenshots you’ve taken on your iOS devices.

Screenshot Dam is a new tweak for jailbroken devices that aims to solve this problem by preventing screenshots from entering your Photo Stream altogether.

Screenshot Dam is available for free in Cydia and it’s incredibly easy to use. There’s no setup — all you have to do is download and install it. It adds no icons to your home screen and makes no other changes to your device.

What it does do is filter out the screenshots you take on your iOS device and prevents them from entering your Photo Stream. They will still appear in the camera roll as usual, they just won’t clutter up your cloud space.

    Photo Stream is so Half-Baked I refuse to use it.   It is probably the worst Apple product to date.  Including MobileMe

    I haven’t used Photo Stream and don’t plan to turn it on any time soon.

    Why is it half-baked?
