Top 10 Best Cydia Apps of All Time
Working out the Top 10 is hard but the Top 10 best of all time is harder. We launched a campaign about a month ago. This campaign is to about the best Cydia app in your life and why you love it. We sent these two questions to our readers and received a good response from them. Thanks to everyone who wrote us the best Cydia apps based on their experience and the reason they love it. Here we managed to compile the top 10 best Cydia apps of all time according to the information we received from a group of Cydia enthusiasts.
SBSettings is widely regarded as a must-have Cydia app. One of our readers wrote – “What the hell on earth that I have to traverse the SpringBoard, open the Settings app, tap the Wi-Fi just to turn ON/OFF Wi-Fi on my iPhone?” With SBSettings, this barrier is removed. This app put all the frequently used features such as Wi-Fi, Brightness, Bluetooth, Location, SSH, 3G/4G, airplane mode, and Cellular Data at the flick of a finger.
iFile is yet another must have Cydia apps. It allows users to browse within the operating system. This means users are allow to create, delete, copy, paste, rename, change permissions, zip/unzip multiple files or directories. Besides, users are also able to transfer files via Celeste, Bluetooth, or AirBlue Sharing to any other iDevice with iFile installed. With all these features, it deserved a seat beside SBSettings.
Do you have any stalkers or exes who keep calling you? Is your phone number being used wrongly by a person who owed a lot of money? Is anybody keeps calling your phone without reasons? iBlacklist is an app to help you solve all these problems. It allows you to block and hide calls or messages from any numbers you hate.
Winterboard is one of the most popular Cydia apps in iWorld. Most Apple users jailbreak their iDevices is to download Winterboard. With Winterboard, users tend to customize their iPhone, iPad, or iPoad Touch’s home screen in anyway they want. If you want to customize the look of your home screen from head to toe and make it different with others, Winterboard is an app for you!
The most hateful thing Cydia users experience is data lost. Restoring a jailbroken Apple product is painful. Therefore, install PKGBackup today and it helps you to simplify the process of reinstalling all Cydia apps at once.
Activator appears a few times among all emails we receive from our readers. This means it has something special. Activator allows users to activate apps via gestures, buttons, and shortcuts easily. Any gestures can be launched with just ONE click. In other words, Activator turbo-charges the home buttons by giving you the ability to put more options for the home screen. The best thing about this app is not just the features but the cost to download. It is free!
Zephyr is yet another Cydia app that earns a lot of applause when we put it on stage. It makes one iPhone becomes two iPhone, one iPod becomes two iPods, or one iPad becomes two iPads. What does it means? Zephyr adds multitasking gestures to the iPhone, iPad, or iPod. You can swipe up from the bottom of the screen to bring up the multasking switcher easily. On the other hand, you can swipe from left or right edges of your screen to switch between your recent apps. Isn’t it a superb handy app? Oops! Looks like some of the features in Zephyr were “borrowed” by Apple for iOS 6.
This is not a free app but the price you pay is worth it. Octopus Keyboard appeared in our previous article 5 Awesome Cydia Apps for iPhone 5 because of its amazing features. It gives you extra eight arms to type faster than you usually do. This app places the most frequently used words or the most likely next words above the default keyboard. It is a simple feature but it helps you to complete your sentence faster. For example, You above Y, What above W, Going above G, To above T, Do above D, Are above A, and so on. It takes only six taps to form the message “What are you going to do?”
“I would have died without music in a single day” – Howsen. A reader wrote us this following his best Cydia app – Grooveshark. Grooveshark is an app from the Cydia Store that provides jailbroken iOS devices with a phenomenal music streaming experience. It was one of the most popular apps in Apple Store but it was banned because it doesn’t have licensing agreements. But now it is available in Cydia store for just $9/month with unlimited music.
Hands-free Control is an awesome Cydia app that allows you to access the voice assistant without even touching your iDevice. Install this app and choose a keyword to activate Siri (the default keyword is “Siri”). Once your iDevice hear the keyword you designated, Siri will jump into action when it is called. Ahhhh, the world is so beautiful!
