Thread: Essential jailbroken apps
08-16-2010, 10:48 AM #1Essential jailbroken apps
I am new to the jailbreak scene and I have recently jailbroken my phone and have done some things such as change the notification sounds and installed a few apps but I feel underwhelmed by the experience and dont really understand the hype. I think it is because I have not found any of the sweet apps that everyone seems to be talking about. Can everyone out there give me a few apps that they can not live without(free or paid) and explain why. Thanks alot.

My best advice is to explore Cydia as much as you can when you can. Tons of cool stuff on it (download RockApp, its faster, but dont update core apps with it always do that with Cydia to avoid bricking). I have had a jailbroken iPhone for 2 1/2 years now and I still find great new things from Cydia to download.

Ipodmusic.info, irealsms, ibluetooth, iblacklist ,ibluenova, backgrounder with multiflow, cydelete, bosspaper, bossprefs, categories, categoriessb, iblank, multi icon mover, add call history, bbciplayer, lockinfo, lockdown, rename, mewseek, tvout2, unlimtones, shrink, yourtube and wifi sync.
There are some amazing apps there all from cydia but there are some amazing app from app store too. Search YouTube videos for these apps if it helps to identify them.

I can't live without quick reply from the lockscreen. I think the only app working on iOS 4 is Bite SMS.
