Best Cydia Apps and Best Cydia Tweaks
There used to be a thread but I couldn't find it. I compiled this list and wanted to share it with you all. These are the best all-around jailbreak apps you will find on Cydia that serve purpose with great funtionalities. There are some great tweaks add to this list as well.


Activator: A really useful app that you can use to completely customize how to open applications. Volume buttons can open up the camera, gestures can open up your SMS. You could also do something crazy like holding down the power button to make a call to your Mom or Dad if you'd like. You can use it to launch anything on your phone. It is your choice what functionalities your iPhone has at this point.

Backgrounder: Apple implemented a quasi-multitasking in iOS 4 that's been good enough for most. But if you still want authentic, seamless and just good ol' fashioned multitasking, Backgrounder has always been the best option.

BiteSMS: It's a significantly more powerful messaging app and includes features like smileys, privacy, scheduled SMS, passcode lock, delivery reports, signatures, and more. The star feature is Qucik Replying, as you can reply without ever getting into an app.

iBlacklist: Easily block calls and texts from people you don't know or just don't want to talk to.

Lock Calendar: For those who like useful lock screens, Lock Calendar displays your calendar on, well, your lock screen. It's reminiscent of 'Today' home pages of Blackberrys and Windows Mobile devices.

MyWi: You can turn your iPhone into a 3G hotspot without paying AT&T or Verizon another dime. Sure, there's some grey area legally speaking but you won't complain when you're using MyWi instead of paying a hotel 20 bucks a night for crappy Wi-Fi.

My3G: My3G tricks your phone into thinking it's connected to Wi-Fi when it's actually on a 3G network. So you can Facetime over 3G, run higher quality videos in certain apps and do things that are Wi-Fi restricted. Crucial.

Notified Pro: Like Mobile Notifier and Notifier+, it's a better notification system for iOS. Though soon to be obsolete when iOS 5 releases (it's nearly the same solution), it delivers non-intrusive webOS style notifications and an Android style drag-down banner.

Pocketmode: It geniusly uses your iPhone's ambient light sensor to determine where your iPhone is. So if it's in your pocket (dark), the ringer is customized to be louder than when it's on your desk (bright). And don't worry, there's a night mode to prevent it from shrieking during your sleep.

SBSettings: This is a must have if you own a jailbroken iPhone. SBSettings gives you easy access to all the settings you'd like to adjust (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Orientation Lock, etc.) by just swiping down the Status Bar. No more digging in menus! It's totally customizable and accessible from anywhere. It makes no sense that Apple hasn't done something like this yet

Springtomize: A suite of custom tools and tweaks that let you adjust your iPhone like icons, folders, status bar, lockscreen, animations, springboard and more.

uWatch: Allows you to watch over thousands of dvd movies in very high quality. A must have app if you want to catch up on all the recent movies you missed, you have tons of free time on your hands or if you just want to stream movie from this app to your TV for the whole family to enjoy.

Winterboard: This app is a must have and a classic especially if you want to customize almost everything on any iPhone. We're talking about crazy themes, wacky fonts and anything else you'd want under the sun.

5-Row Qwerty Keyboard: It adds a row for numbers on the keyboard. Definitely a time saver.

Great list! I would suggest replacing MyWi with TetherMe though, MyWi is easily detectable by network providers and they have been threatening to force subscribers into a tethering plan or to force them off their unlimited plans completely if they are caught

You simply restore in iTunes and they will never be able to tell that it was ever jailbroken

My Top 3 are Cydia apps are:

1. uWatch (Allows you to stream or download new full movies in very high quality.)

2. Boot Logos (Requires Greenpois0n jailbreak to use - Allows you to change your boot logo and you can install custom boot logos from Cydia)

3. 3G Unrestrictor (Allows you to trick your iPhone into thinking it's on WiFi when really on 3G so you can get HD Youtube videos, use Facetime on 3G and download larger apps and also great for Skype on 3G.)

I installed uWatch app from Cydia and was able to watch some new movies like Abduction, Killer Elite, Drive, The Debt and Colombiana. If you don't have this app then I encourage that you get it from Cydia cause the streams are fast, downloads are even faster and the movie quality are insane 4 real.

These are the additional nifty Cydia apps I strongly recommend:

Multi cleaner - controls multi tasking behavior; enhancement for ios4+ w/c integrates nicely with Activator; lets you terminate current/all applications with a swipe of a finger

IFile and myfile - filesystem manager

AttachmentSaver - saves email attachment for later use

CyDelete - delete cydia applications off springboard

Icon Renamer - rename icons in springboard

MultiIconMover - move multiple icons at the same time from diff springboard pages

NoSpot - removes the search bar

NoLockScreen - disable lockscreen for faster access to springboard

PreventSleep - avoid idle connection lost

Rich Text for Mail - html type email editing / rendering

Action Menu (Plus) - adds further functionality to the default cut, copy, paste, select all

SMusic - plays any system supported audio file anywhere in the filesystem. now you can totally leave itunes behind.

Volume Boost - increase system max volume

WiCarrier - displays wifi name in status bar

Wifi Booster - displays all network list

YFiSelect - quickly change wifi network from anywhere
