The best Cydia Apps for Jailbroken iPhones

As I have told you about the top cydia apps yesterday. The list included apps that were approved by Apple and, as a result, available in the traditionally-used App Store. As most iPhone users know, there is another side to the app world. Known to the world as Cydia, it is much like an alternate dimension that contains its own treasure trove of apps that Apple would never consider approving due to the fact that they use the jailbroken infrastructure to bypass restrictions on functionality and use that Apple has deemed necessary.

We’re not discussing the how-to or ethics of jailbreaking with Greenpois0n or any other tool. We’re not debating the potential impact of invalidating your warranty with Apple. We’re also not going to discuss things like Hackulous or how to jailbreak your device. These are all things you can research on your own, in order to make the decision that best suits you. The list of apps is provided with the assumption that you’ve already jailbroken your new Verizon (or AT&T) iPhone and want to know which apps have the greatest potential to make your iPhone life better.
