    Tough call. I would have to go with Lockinfo with SBSettings in a very close second.

    The ability to look at my lockscreen and see my upcoming appointments just seems so basic to me. I don't use it for anything else.

    I would say MobileNotifier (beta 4) and SBSettings. I use both of them all the time. Let's just say that I'll be extremely disappointed in Apple if they don't revamp the notification system. Especially since MobileNotifier is unbelievably more useable than the current system.

    BiteSMS--all the features. But if I had to pick just one piece of that, it'd be quick reply/compose, since I use it constantly.

    Notified App. Even if we couldn't get the pull-down, status bar icons would be an incredible improvement.

    Probably SBSettings. I tried LockInfo but I wasn't sold on it. I'd probably like it better with some Apple polish.

    Probably because they only have so many OS devs and most of them are currently working on finishing up Lion. Apple doesn't have two different teams for iOS and OS X.

    There's also a usability concern. A lot of the tweaks/apps on Cydia aren't that polished. Apple likes to nail feature look and usability before they release them (copy and paste is a prime example).

    Never had it or been able to try it...but Swype. Yes I know its not on cydia and I have looked everywhere for something similar. Even tried this crap known as EightKeys, why would I want to tap a block and then remember where the letter was and tap the letter to enter a letter? :confused:

    Non-Cydia Improvement - Just something as simple as apps being able to modify certain functions of the phone like keyboard, texting, etc... I dont see why it would be a problem if they went through Apple and didnt interfere with the "user experience"...I just grow tired of the lockdown :(

    Lock Info.. hands down. The changes the developer has made, the stability of the product etc make it the one app I could not do without. Frankly, it prevented me from switching to Android. Also use BiteSMS and it's integration within Lock Info is excellent.

    LockInfo. I think Apple should buy it and work out the few rough edges (tap on voicemail should play the message, tap on WhatsApp should open the chat, tap & hold a tweet should open a context menu to retweet or reply or open the embedded link).

    I think SBSettings would be my first choice. Everyone picking BiteSMS, is it just the quickreply feature? Or something else about BiteSMS?

    SBSetting and FastClockUp

    FastClock totally changes the behavior of the phone..it's ridiculous how much Apple slows down the UI.

    BiteSMS for me as well. I use the quick reply/quick compose functions thousands of times every month - can't live without them.
