    f.lux, Activator, Winterboard (for theming) iWidgets, just to name a few.

    Yes, purchases are made through Paypay, or you can use Amazon as Cydia is set up for that.

    Saurik ended Amazon a few days ago. Only Paypal :/
    Though Saurik said he was looking into another payment method that will be released soon :p

    Thanks for that!

    I never use Amazon on Cydia so I didn't realize.

    FlipControlCenter is my favorite. Technically it hasn't been tested for 8.4, but it's working fine for me.

    It lets you customize the top and bottom rows of switches in Control Center - they can even scroll! So you can have easy-to-find toggles for your wifi hotspot, location services, and so on. Plus if you've got other favorite tweaks they often can be added as FlipSwitches - so you can easily enable/disable Untethered Hey Siri, OpenSSH, etc.

    This is such a great thing I predict Apple will copy it in the next 1-2 versions of iOS.

    Be aware that the more tweaks you use, the more your battery life may be impacted. Always-on tweaks like theme engines can significantly shorten how long you can go without having to charge again (some people say Activator is very bad in that regard as well, but I've never had an issue with it).

    I've got about 50 or so tweaks. Battery life is excellent.

    OP. I might suggest Eclipse 2 if you are interested in getting rid of iOS 8's color.

    Color Profiles and Monochrome is also what I use.

    Hands done the best theme in my mind is glasklart (use with winterboard), next I like to edit the lock screen with something called groovylock the theme I use is grand ls 12h. Next check out bytafont 2 to change your text. After that I would look into springtomize, it is probably the coolest tweak, allows you to customize most everything on the springboard

    Couple more to look into that are a must for me

    Ccsettings for iOS 8
    Lithium/alkaline
    Zeppelin
    Anchor
    Ifile

    How can i put a weather widget in the lock screen? Also i installed groovylock and tried using hexaclock, ls chronus, and ls mycs; however i guess cause i don't have ifile i can not configure them correct?

    Hi,

    I use the theme - Elite8

    I use tweaks

    Barrel.
    BrowserChooser.
    ICleaner.
    Eclipse 2
    BlurryBadges.
    CC Settings.
    f.lux
    BetterFiveIconDock.
    SwipeSelection.

    I advise to carefully perform a little homework on a tweak that catches your eye. Learn how to self resolve if you run into a tweak clash / safe mode etc.

    Enjoy the journey

    Still debating downgrading to 8.4 from 9b2, and just leaving my Watch 2b2 on airplane mode. I miss my jb and have been a very avid jb'er since the first iPhone, but not sure I really miss a lot of the tweaks. Probably WB, Message Customizer, Auxo, CCSettings. I'll probably jump if an 8.4.1 is released or something. We'll see. Enjoy the experience though! I learned so much just by installing things and tweaking stuff in iFile.

    I'm digging ClassicDock, Sicarius & Tinybar as some that haven't already been listed by others, just off the top of my head.

    This is pretty slick looking. Sure would be nice if it were updated to support 8.4...
