It’s easy to Google and read about certain apps and tweaks, but most of them are just a list or not properly presented. In this article we will try to clarify those misunderstandings. This short list will contain cydia apps and tweaks that I consider essential for any user with a jailbroken iDevice.
- Even if you are new to the jailbreak world there is that one thing you will try to find and install it. As you know all iDevices lack a file manager. The answer is simple iFile does the job perfectly. Beside the things that you find in a file manager you will be surprised to see that it is also an Image viewer, video and audio player. It supports a lot of multimedia formats. You can also install DEB. You can also view and edit text files. With its built-in web server iFile is also a file downloader and uploader. You can also compress or decompress files.
- Users with many apps know well the folder limitations of iOS. With FolderEnhancer all those limitations are removed. With this tweak you can create folders inside a folder, add folders to dock. Possibility to have up to 320 icons in a folder. You can also disable animation or hide the folder name and wallpaper.

Well SBSettings brings most of the important toggles to SpringBoard. This way you will have like toggles for Wireless, Bluetooth and many more at your fingertips.
- Activator is the perfect tweak if you like gesture control. By defining gestures you can activate certain features or apps. It is very intuitive and easy to use.
- Auxo is relatively new to the jailbreak world. It tries to redefine the iOS task switcher. You can get e better preview of running apps, dismissing them with ease. Toggles for some usual features.
