Top 5 Jailbreak Applications
So I was thinking about doing another top 5 Jailbreak apps article for the front page here at TiPb and want to get your feedback of what apps I should spotlight... so be pals and help me out by listing what you think would be a good top 5.

Overboard! I really think I could get by without any other j/b app except that one. I can have 11 pages of apps and by keeping it on my dock, I can always go directly to whichever page has the app I'm looking for. It is my number one!

Thanks for the replies so far. Something to keep in mind a lot of what you happen to say may have already been spotlighted in a Top 5. So if you can think of some of the newest apps available. Thanks!

Iblacklist.. it costs money doesnt it? I jailbroke to "BEAT THE SYSTEM MAN" and not have to pay for wonderfully creative applications...the fact that I have to pay for one.. even if it is a great help to the creator.. is just ridiculous.

What is wrong with compensating developers for their time and energy. Some of these "paid" apps are very worthwhile and the $1, $2, etc. it cost is easily worth the extra time. I am all for support developers for their efforts. I am sure you have wasted $$$ on one or more "twitter" apps :-)

BiteSMS -- a MUST HAVE for heavy texters (30-day trial, $6)
3G Unrestrictor -- flawlessly lets you use apps on 3G that are only supposed to be used on wifi ($3)
qTweeter -- quick and easy post to Twitter and Facebook. Includes music tweet, Safari tweet, upload image or video. My only complaint, no location tweet ($4ish?)
iFile -- File manager and browser (I'm still using the trial...)
And of course the standards -- Winterboard, SBSettings, OpenSSH, Notifier

- Kirikae or ProSwitcher
- - Proswitcher is prettier, Kirikae is faster
- SBSettings + Rotation Inhibitor + Autolock
- - Automatically adjusts the brightness of your iphone screen to maximum
- - Youtube downloader
- Orbit ($2)
- - I hear Overboard ($2) is better. Is it really worth spending another $2?
And to a lesser extent...
- - Because my parents would never let me have one when I was little
- - Because it boggles my mind that my phone can play a game that my desktop was incapable of 15 years ago.

For those of you too lazy to look it up, The Top 5 Jailbroken Apps from each piece:
Part 4 (post 3.0)
So I'm guessing Jeremy wants apps other than those.
I would put in:
MyWi (once I finally get it set up and working)
Notifier (since status notifier doesn't work with OS 3.0)
Flashlight (it's amazing how much better it actually is)

Yeah, I like the tweaks!
