I'm coming back to iphone after trying out an android for the past year, I absolutely hated it! I got the note 4 instead of the iphone 6 or 6+ last year because I wanted to see if androids were as good as all the apple haters like to say they are, short answer is no, they suck. ANYWHOM, I'm coming back, my iphone 6s+ 64gb space gray should be here tonight and I'm eager to go straight to jailbreaking. Amazing how quickly a jailbreak was available, I think I waited like 5 months for an untethered jailbreak for iphone 5. On to the point of this thread, I've been away from jailbreaking for a while, what apps should I get? Or can you tell me if there are apps like the following, or if the apps still work or if there are better versions of them now?

1) Bossprefs/SBSettings
2) Activator
3) BiteSMS (I pretty much just loved the delayed sending option and the easy quick reply but doesn't apple have that stock now anyways?)
4) Phantom (to keep snapchat photos and be able to see them forever)
5) Biolockdown (makes certain apps require fingerprint to access)
6) one that made control center way better, rearranging toggles, adding/removing different toggles, etc.


I will miss the keyboard with android, having the number row, holding a character down for a punctuation, etc. Is there an android keyboard for iphone that has the 5 rows, a comma and period as dedicated keys and to where I can hold the "d" for "!" and "m" for "?" and that I can set the number row to be certain words if held down? I like to have a hold of the "1" key be my email address.

Is there a way to use all apps in multitask view? like, turn the phone sideways and have two apps simultaneously running like the new ipad is supposed to be able to do?

Best tethering app? Being grandfathered in on AT&T's unlimited data I'd like to have a good tethering app, I had tetherme that app that was in the app store for like 8 hours but I don't have that on my computer anymore unfortunately, but I know there are better jailbroken ones out there. I remember miwi 4.0, that was awesome, funny little story: I named a wifi network "Moorpark College" when I was going to that community college, set it with no password, waited for 10+ people to connect (which was still faster than the schools ****** wifi) and then turned it off and looked around in classes and watched as people tried to refresh, hahaha. Kind of evil, but it was really funny, haha.

Any tweaks that add some cool functions to 3d touch?

I'm sure there are others I forgot about but I'm about to leave so I just want to get this out there and hopefully get some responses when I get home and can have the phone and jailbreak it. Or any other suggestions for things I should check out now (I've been away for a year, new things must have come out). Thanks everyone!

-Robby

Apps to get - See picture

1) Bossprefs/SBSettings - FlipControlCenter, not the same exactly though
2) Activator - still exists
3) BiteSMS (I pretty much just loved the delayed sending option and the easy quick reply but doesn't apple have that stock now anyways?) - Prepare for disappointment. It was not updated for ios 8 and is no longer supported. Apple does have quick reply stock, but not delayed or quick compose
4) Phantom (to keep snapchat photos and be able to see them forever) - Pretty sure thats still a thing
5) Biolockdown (makes certain apps require fingerprint to access) - Still a thing
6) one that made control center way better, rearranging toggles, adding/removing different toggles, etc. -FlipControlCenter. CCControls is also one, but I prefer FCC.

I like to have a hold of the "1" key be my email address. ExKey and iKeyWei have this, but not the punctuation. Try a 3rd party keyboard from the store

Is there a way to use all apps in multitask view? like, turn the phone sideways and have two apps simultaneously running like the new ipad is supposed to be able to do? Not that I know of, though ReachApp in iOS 8 (not updated yet) allowed you to do that but in portrait and using the reachability view

Kind of evil, but it was really funny, haha. Haha, nice one. MyWi 9 for $20 works. If you bought Mywi 4, its should be free though

Any tweaks that add some cool functions to 3d touch? - Lots. See my picture
By the way, Anemone is a new theme engine gaining popularity over winterboard. It offers a better UI and previews. Check it out if you use themes.

You're my hero! VideoPane isn't working on my phone. I installed it, restarted the phone and it got stuck on the apple logo, booted to safe mode, deleted it and everything was fine. I also had an issue with Zeppelin (it's not on your list, but I wanted it to say "Rob" instead of "AT&T"), the issue was that after I renamed it, cydia wouldn't open, it would just crash, changed the name back to stock and it was fine again so I just deleted it.

Thats strange because video pane works for me. Its buggy like crazy though, so you aren't missing out.
