Top 10 Cydia App choices for year 2011



Cydia has over 10,000 apps and it is difficult to determine what to install or where to start. This thread should give you an idea of what others are installing based on the popularity of these apps. Feel free to leave a reply below with your top 5 or top 10 favorite Cydia apps to also help others get an idea what to install. When you post your replies, make sure to give a description of the app and it's functionality. Please do not reference about xxxxxxxxx or any cracked apps for it is against this forum's policy.

1. 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.)

2. 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.)

3. bigU Movies: (Allows you to watch over thousands of full length new movies and dvd movies in very high quality. A must have app if you want to catch up on all the recent movies you missed, want to watch new movies, 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.)

4. 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.)

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

6. 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.)

7. 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.)

8. 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.)

9. TVOut2: (Allows you to view your iPhone and all apps including games on your TV.)

10. 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.)
