If this is the first time jailbreak an iPhone you probably do not know many Cydia tweaks and Cydia applications and not find as useful or Jailbreaking.
Best Cydia Apps For iOS 6
There are many ways to customize your device after Jailbreaking it. You can install themes, change icons, resize icons and do much more. Many constraints can be removed from the device after Jailbreaking. Before doing any of this customization, once installed Cydia, applications and settings must be downloaded first. Here are the best settings and applications you’ll find the Cydia Store.
1. BiteSMS, Messages+
Two apps, with one goal: to enhance iOS messaging. Both BiteSMS and Messages+ let you quick-reply to a text without leaving the app you’re in, or assign a gesture to compose a new message from anywhere in iOS.
BiteSMS has been around longer, and offers theming and tons of customization. Messages+ is more streamlined, and integrated into the stock Messages app. It’s worth checking out both to find your favorite.
Android fans always score over iOS fans when it comes to customization. Widgets are something which iOS for some unknown reason always ran away from. Well that’s what Jailbreaking is for right ? This Cydia tweak let’s you add android style widgets, there are a bunch pre-loaded into the app, and they can easily be re-sized and moved around your home screen.
What about the acceleration of iPhone animations: Unlocking the screen, opening up the settings, etc? FakeClockUp animations really speeds by a factor of 10 (or so they say). It has been known to work well in iOS 6 also (with some minor delays on occasion). The tweak is great if you’re not very interesting animations and prefer to kill them for the sake of faster processing.
4. LowPower Banner
If you hate those annoying low battery popups that interrupt whatever you are doing to tell you that battery life is at 20% or 10% left, grab the free LowPower Banner Cydia app. LowPower Banner lets users customize the actions and sounds when the phone is charging, and when battery power is low. Most importantly it makes the pop up alert for low battery life an unobtrusive banner.
Auxo brings new and exciting upgrades just multitasking gestures in iOS switcher usual and boring. View current status of running applications in task switcher bar and out of any one or more at a time by sliding down icons. From Auxo get to toggle Wi-Fi, 3G, Bluetooth, GPS and other functions directly from the iOS multitasking bar.
6. LockInfo 5
LockInfo is my favorite jailbreak tweak for the Lock screen. With LockInfo, you can check my emails, access the Twitter feed and easily dismiss notifications from the Lock screen. It makes me a lot more productive (or that is what I think). LockInfo also gives you give access to your Favorite Contacts and the weather widget on the Lock screen.
IntelliScreenX is another popular jailbreak tweak for the Lock screen, but I prefer LockInfo. It’s not perfect but I really like mail preview functionality in LockInfo. If you’re a Facebook addict then you may like IntelliScreenX.
7. Five Icon Dock
Now you can run more icons on the screen, with a help of a Cydia tweak called iOS 6 Five Icon Dock. It allows you to add more icons on each row of the table of spring, so that you can enjoy more icons on a page. It will save much of your time, because now there is more of the same icons one page. Once installed, you see five apps in the task switcher.
This little tweak is a big on adding powerful changes to Siri that will quickly become a must-have for many jailbreakers. AssistantEnhancer has the ability to control a number of features not available to Siri in the standard iOS setup. Though the features are many, the most significant improvement it makes to Siri is the ability to control non-stock music applications such as Spotify, Grooveshark and Pandora. In Spotify for instance, you can configure up to two favorite playlists with just your voice and one quick tap once list is loaded. The fact that this tweak allows Siri to control all your favorite music sources, you’ll soon find yourself gaining access to more music seamlessly.
There are some other cool features too though, For example, AssistantEnancer can search for concerts and music events in your local area, buy tickets, and so forth. AssistanEnhancer brings the same capabilities to the App Store as well, allowing search for apps by name. Once results are rendered, a tap on it leads you to the apps store and is ready to purchase or download. This tweak is compatible with all iOS 5 and iOS 6 jailbreak devices and is well worth the $1.99 asking price in the Cydia store.
It is a quite useful tweak especially for those of you who enjoy playing games on their devices. As you know, when you play a game, the game will be displayed on full screen. However, when you want to know the hour or battery level, you get to see a small NotificationCenter tab. For this, if you use StatusTab, you will be able to see the whole Notification Tab with all its options. You can even change the opacity of the bar.
Swype came out as an alternative keyboard for Android and did a pretty nice job as a quick and effective touch input method and the same app is now available as a Cydia Tweak under the same name for iPad. You can swipe your fingers across letters and a fancy trial follows which stops once the word is complete. To install Swype enter http://wynd.x10.mx in source URL dialogue box in Cydia or alternatively you can search for iSwipe from BigBoss repo.
