    It's been long since overdue. An essential list of cydia apps for all your iDevices (meaning iPod Touch, iPhone, and iPad).

    And yes this is half inched from <a href="http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showuser=177066" target="_blank">Guild McCommunist</a> (hope he doesn't mind)

    I think it's important that App store and Cydia Apps are listed separately, to prevent confusion.
    Some rules, first and foremost.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Also, a short description of the apps would be nice, though I don't mind doing it myself.

    Now get posting!

    My stuff

    Anything.

    I've updated the OP with everyones stuff.

    Any help with the price of Voice Control? (can't get it on my iPod) and any info on Five Column? I'm guessing it does what you'd think but I don't want to guess.

    Infinifolders - Decent
    OpenSSH - Pretty much required for a jailbroken device IMO
    iFile - Awesome, but not worth paying for +1 anyway.
    SBSettings - REQUIRED, this is pretty much THE reason to mod your iPhone
    MultiIconMover - Convenient but can get buggy with updates and send your phone into seizure mode.
    -1 Winterboard - Piece of shit in every possible way, laggy as all hell, sucks, in every possible way.
    -1 Mxtube - Crappy version of YourTube
    YourTube 2 - Superior youtube downloader, new version is miles ahead of MxTube
    -1 Five Icon Dock - Useless when considering you can just have:
    Infinidock - Vastly superior in every possible way, does everything 5 Icon Dock does and more, no one should be using 5/6/7 icon dock cydia apps as of almost 6 months ago, Infinidock makes them all pointless.
    -1 FakeCarrier - MakeItMine is better
    MakeItMine - Better version of FakeCarrier
    -1 5ColumnSpringboard - Pretty crappy, have had it crash on me several times in the past, there is a new version similar to Infinidock that simply allows you to choose number of columns (and rows) in Settings instead of having one app that's so single focused.
    AdBlocker - Seems to work decently for now....
    Activator - A good deal of cydia apps just automatically download it with it, it's awesome.
    AutoClose Folder - Damn those folders staying open is annoying.
    biteSMS - Awwwwwww HELLYEAH
    My3G - Works okay, for now I'm preferring it over 3G Unrestrictor
    Snappy - Regular camera is just TOO slow.

    Updated again. No half votes, only +1 or -1.

    I've put things with 0 votes or less (due to -1's) in a spoiler so it's faster to update if they get any votes. [​IMG]

    Thought you might. [​IMG]

    I haven't used much on Cydia yet, so for now I can only +1 SBsettings and OpenSSH, though I should try some stuff eventually.

    Thank you Pi for making a better version of my thread. [​IMG]

    Not to start a flamewar but I had to make a couple points.
    These.
    Point 1:Mxtube was the FIRST native YouTube downloader,and is free,unlike YourTube.Yourtube is an extension to Youtube.app,Mxtube is a standalone app.Basicly,it all depends on a person's preferences on what they like or not.
    Point 2:If you don't use Winterboard,what do you use?While I agree that it does tend to lag and some themes fail at times,there really isn't a practical,free alternative.Unless WinterSled gets a GUI,this is all the average user can use(Not everyone knows how to use mobile terminal).

    No flamewars,please.
