    Default Apps You May Want to Consider Getting in Cydia
    Since there are so many Cydia apps around, I thought I'd pick out some of the more notable, useful apps that I have came across or am using right now. If you think I have missed out any Cydia apps that should be included in this list, please let me know and I will duly update it.

    For obvious reasons, I have not included the one most notorious app so please do not reply to me asking me to include it. If you do, I will report that post to the mod. I will also not include iSt**my since there might be underage forumers.

    Hope you guys understand my position. It's better for me to report than the mods to close this thread. I took several hours to compile this list for your benefit so please, help me to help you.

    You may think it is crazy to pay for apps but for those who does coding, you will appreciate all the hard work involved. It's not a 9am-5pm routine task. It's worst when you have got responsibilities to paying customers.

    Also for those who doesn't know this, yes you can share your account on multiple iDevices. I am sharing my Cydia account with 4 iPhones, 2 iPads and one iPod Touch. So in that sense, it is money well spent since I only need to fork out once. And don't worry, it's is perfectly accepted.

    So without further ado, I present the list of apps which I think/been suggested worth considering to get:

    iWipe: USD $2.99
    Author - Jay Freeman (saurik)
    Description - Want to make sure a deleted confidential email or embarrassing photo is purged forever from your iPhone? Simply deleting a file doesn't guarantee it's gone for good, and doing a restore only quick-formats the iPhone. Protect your deleted data from being recovered by hacking tools and prying eyes, or in the event your iPhone is stolen.
    iWipe is a simple utility for zeroing out the free space on your iPhone. The tool does not delete any live files, but uses the same method that Mac OS X uses to zero free space: it creates a large temporary file, which writes zeroes over the free space where deleted files can still reside. The entire iPhone user partition is cleansed, forever purging deleted photos, email, voicemail, and other deleted files.
    This helpful utility can be run periodically to effortlessly clear out old data and ensure it is beyond recovery. Because it doesn't erase your content or settings, you won't need to recover any backups or risk losing data. Actual erase time varies depending on the amount of free space on the device. You're still able to lock or receive phone calls while iWipe is running.
