    I'm on the iPhone 6 (16GB) on iOS 8.1.

    I currently have installed:

    ForceGoodFit - Forces apps to use the 6/6+ resolution (some apps look bad or break when you use this though, be warned)

    DetailedBatteryUsage - Wayy more detail for Battery Usage (I just wanted the graph)

    iCleaner - Remove junk files off your phone

    SameStatus - Smaller status bar on the lockscreen

    Alkaline - Battery icon themer

    LockGlyph - Replaces Slide to Unlock with the Apple Pay animation

    Springtomize 3 - For customizing Springboard appearance

    RecentFacebook - Forces Most Recent for the Facebook app

    check out:

    callbar - beautiful smaller phone/callbar

    möbius - lets you continually swipe through their iOS pages

    flurry - change the blur and tint level of overlays

    Aria - changes the color of default music app to match the currently playing song album art (instead of the dead white space)

    What I've added so far & how I use it:

    iBlacklist--set to block calls from all but my contacts
    BetterFiveIconDock--obvious...can't bear a 4 icon dock
    HomescreenDesigner--set to a 3x4 centered grid
    Folder Enhancer 7/8--12-16 icons per page in folders, + folders in folders
    DockShift--bye bye, stupid blurred dock background & page dots
    Icon Renamer--bye bye, icon names
    MusicGestures--swipe on album art to play next song, double tap for play/pause

    Most all of these do more than I've listed. I'll probably go back to theming again soon enough, but I typically add those tweaks last after a few days of making sure everything else is stable.

    Edit: added Aria thanks to this thread. While I still prefer BlurredMusicApp for making the Music player more attractive, there's no sign right now that particular tweak will be updated for 8. So Aria will do!

    here are mine, free unless otherwise indicated:

    20 Second Lockscreen
    Activator:
    • 3 finger pinch: lock screen
    • swipe from right: switch to previous app (install LastApp from activator)
    • swipe up from bottom: first springboard page, simulates hitting the home button
    • hold status bar: rotation lock
    Autopause: pauses music when volume turned off
    BattSaver (paid): purports to extend battery life by turning off radios when locked
    BetterFiveColumnHomescreen
    BetterFiveIconDock
    CCcontrols
    Dietbar: reduces the size of the navigation bar for most apps
    ForceGoodFit: makes apps not yet updated for 6/6+ look right, doesn't always for every app, but when it does work, pretty awesome
    Haptic Pro (paid): haptic feedback when typing with stock keyboard, doesn't work with 3rd party kbs
    iCleaner
    MusicGestures: allows swiping to skip tracks and pause/play in music app
    MyReachability: reachability tweak that uses accelerometer to move window to right or left side
    NCSingleTapClear
    Nitrous (paid)
    OpenNotifier: adds android-like icons to status bar for notifications
    Safari Refresh
    Samestatus: same font size btw lockscreen and homescreen
    Showcase: kb tweak that shows whether you're typing in upper or lower case
    Slide2kill8 Lite: closes all apps when swiping down in multitasker
    Springtomize 3 (paid)
    Tinybar: makes notification bar smaller so doesn't block navigation bar (adjustable)
    Untrusted Hosts Blocker: blocks ads
    VolumeNotifier: adds a sound when adjusting volume like on a mac

    So I can have 5 columns of 6 icons rather than 4 columns of 6 icons. Same reason I have 5 icon dock. So I can have 5 icons there rather than 4.

    Oh my bad.. for some reason I thought 5 columns was the default on the 6+, I forgot I used Springtomize to make mine 5 columns.

    I tried to do it with springtomize but when I rotated it the icons would get bigger and the icon name would come back for a second then go back to normal. Weird little glitch. I don't have it with the better5column tweak.

    Hmm, at first I didn't think it was but after a couple days I think it is making some difference. I haven't done any testing by turning it off and comparing tho.

    It does also affect the UX though because since the radios are off when phone is locked. But if you can live with it, it does extend the battery life.
