  • MMi's Staff Picks: Our Most Used Apps List


    Today is a special little feature. I've gathered some of the best and most used app recommendations from the MMi Staff, and here is what we consider to be worthy of almost always being installed on our iDevices, dubbed as our "Most Used Apps".

    Here is how I will do this. After asking each of the staff members their top picks, I will list the apps from the most common first, and then I'll show each staff member's top picks.

    Here are the top 5 Apps that are installed on at least 3/5 of all of MMi Staff's devices. Don't foget to let us know what apps YOU use most, and share your experiences.

    1. MyWi 4.0
    Jailbroken iDevice Required


    Hand's down the most common app found on the staff's iDevices, is MyWi 4.0. From the developers of Rock, comes the one of the most fascinating apps available for a jailbroken iDevice. MyWi is more than just a tethering enabler. MyWi creates a WiFi HotSpot with a press of a finger! Wherever you are - you can connect your laptop or other mobile device to your iPhone's Data via WiFi. MyWi has tethering support to iOS 4, and works with all jailbroken iPhones (including 2G/3G/3GS/4) and the iPad on 3.1.2 or later.

    Available in Rock for $19.99.

    If your looking for data tethering but don't need the WiFi hotspot features and just need basic usb cable tethering, check out TetherMe for only $1.99, but keep in mind it doesn't have nearly the power that MyWi gives you.



    2. InfiniFolders
    Jailbroken iDevice Required


    Since the release of iOS 4, this is probably one of the best tweaks you could ask for with the addition of folders. Normally you are limited to how many apps you can put inside a folder on iOS 4, but with the help of @Chpwn, InfiniFolders lets you put as many apps as you wish, inside of a folder, thus giving it the name inifnifolders.

    This tweak is available via Cydia for $1.99.



    3. WiFi Sync
    Jailbroken iDevice Required


    Coming in at third place, for the most common app found on the MMi Staff's iDevices, is WiFi Sync. Wi-Fi Sync enables wireless syncing with iTunes at the tap of a button. No USB Cable required. Sync from the anywhere within your WiFi range. You will be required to install 3rd party software on your PC/Mac but it's really simple.

    Available from the Cydia Store for $9.99. More Info On WiFi Sync



    4. Air Sharing & Air Display
    Available in the App Store (link)


    Another app that trended across our iDevices was Air Sharing and Air Display. Air Display lets you use your iPad as a secondary monitor. Simply position your iPad next to your computer, launch the apps, and just like that you've got another monitor. Air Display is $9.99 on iTunes.

    Air Sharing allows you to manage documents on the go. With Air Sharing, you can easily mount your iPhone or iPod touch as a Wi-Fi drive on your Mac/PC/Linux system or simply connect from any computer's web browser. Your also able to actually view and email documents as email attachments. This is great for anyone collaborating or using a central place to store frequently used documents. Air Sharing HD is available for iPad as well. Air Sharing is available on iTunes for $2.99 for iPhone and $9.99 for iPad.


    5. Tlert
    Jailbroken iDevice Required


    Tlert is an integrated MMS/SMS Texting add-on. It does not replace your Messages app, but rather enhances it while keeping everything extremely tidy and non intrusive. Tlert, like other quick reply applications, allows you to reply and compose from any app.

    Do yourself a favor and check out Tlert on Rock for $6.99.



    There you have it folks. Here is the top most used apps that each of the staff members listed. I'll try and do more features like this in the future.

      The lists so far are great.. I have to add Ifile, safari downloader and torrentula. As crazy as it may sound, I love the ability to download torrent files using safari downloader and torrentula straight to my phone on the fly.. Yes, it's simpler on the computer but hey, if I'm not near a comp, the ability to do it on the phone is great!

      MyWi 4.0 is the most used app on my IPhone 4. It's also the main reason that my friends have chosen to have me jailbreak they're iPhones.

      how do you repurchase things in cydia. In rock its really easy. i purchased 3g unrestrictor and not sure how to go about getting it back.. I also want to purchase infinifolders but im uneasy about the way cydia handles purchases.

      Nevermind i figured it out. Once i purchased infinifolders i was able to get back whatever i purchased before.

      Cydia uses your payment email address. When you log in it recognizes that you have previously purchased it. The same way iTunes handles them.

      Great apps. It's a shame all are paid-apps. The world of 'free' is slowly going away.

      This is very helpful, but are they all compatible with iPhone 4? Cuz I have wifi sync and for some reason iTunes wont detect my iPhone when plugged in via usb. When I uninstall wifi sync then it detects it no problem. I can still use wifisync wireless just can't normally plug my device. PS I PAID for the app. Also BiteSMS is by far the best app which should be on the list, or iRealSMS.

      Again, no it is not. The icon you are speaking of would be the back of a first gen silver iPhone, black base, with a green background and green arrow pointing to the bottom of the iPhone, symbolizing 'download' towards the dock connection. *See Below*



      I am not sure what the icon on the bottom left of that folder is, but that is obviously a green background with a monitor in the foreground.
