ok, in David Letterman fashion; the best jailbroken iphone apps (applications) for your smartphone happies.  Most of these should be applicable to the iPad. Same as the iphone4.

Latest news on jailbreaking the iphone.  Check it here.

And as always, if anyone thinks they know of something better then what I have here, I’m open to input.

Number 10 …. (drum roll)


10. WinterBoard
iPhone pimping made easy. The is normally the first thing people install and spend HOURS playing with. As for me, with exception to a few small changes, I do not bother with it since many of the changes can slow the phone down a touch.
9. 3G Unrestrictor

3G Unrestrictor allows you to go around the iPhone’s limitations and restrictions of not being able to use some applications like FaceTime, iCloud Backup, Photo Stream or high quality YouTube videos while on a mobile internet connection like 3G or EDGE as well as many other things.

It allows those things by tricking applications into believing they are on WiFi, even though they are on 3G or EDGE.

8. DriveSave.ly
This is a cool little app that you can get on all other phones, just not the iphone, without jailbreak. This app will listen for new SMS messages and convert those messages to voice.  Great when driving or REALLY great when motorcycling. I’ve been messing with PHP code to extend this to support email. I’ll update when I get it done. More on drivesafe.ly here.
7. VoiceActivatorJust as it sounds.  Near full command of your iphone through voice commands.  That includes ipod control, dialing people, opening web pages, even getting the time. I have not messed with this that much, but I’m trying to get map search to work. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RrVgvTgyUs8&feature=player_embedded
6. CyntactThis is pretty useful, at least for me. A simple hack, you get images of people next to their name.  Really I cannot understand why this is not part of the OS image address book iphone cyntact

5. Backgrounder

Backgrounder is nothing but coolness.  In fact, the only reason I do not have this lower then 5 is that I do not use it THAT much.. But LOVE it when I do.  Multithreading is something that is new and only for iOS4 users.  Yea right?  Nope. its not true multithreading AND its only for those apps that implemented it.  So what about that cool game you have been playing?  Nope, unless its been updated recently, most likely multithreading on iOS4 will not work. You can read more on iOS4 and backgrounder here.

Bollocks to that.  With Backgrounder you can use for any app , and I do.

4. IntelliScreenX 6
As much as I like this app, I’m still not 100% sure I’m going to keep it. It seems to have issues now and again.. Interfering with screen init(), slowing the iphone down, not working at times.. We’ll see. I still need to update to 6.

If you are ever in need of interwebs access for your laptop and there is no free wifi is site, well, use the iPhone! Its not fast, but handy when you need it.I also have this selected over MiWi because MiWi does not work on the latest iOS builds.  PDANet, works great.  Great for connecting my ipad.More here..

A must have if you have lots if junk on your iPhone. Basically its folders for your icons! Clear and simple.yea, I know, iphone4 has this… too little to late pal.
1. SBSetting
I could not go one day without this. (this is a older pic, its even better) This perfect little app provides a short cut to your most used settings and aps. I turn 3G on and off quite often, and going through all the menus within settings is a royal pain. With SBSetting, I simply swipe across the top of the screen and there they are.. ready for toggles. Sweeeettt.. More here..

Now, the following did not make the top 10, but I thought I would mention them anyway..

Quake. Yup ID’s Quake from the old days.  I do not play it much, just glad that its there. 🙂

VideoRecorder. If this worked properly I would place it over CyCorder because I love the fact you can change setting on both voice and sound.  More here.

Retro Phone Dialer.. What can I say??  Is just plain cool.
