    Just curious to see what everyones Top 5 JB apps or tweaks are.

    Also, let us know what the app or tweaks do. Some people might have apps/tweaks that are not so popular but might be useful to others. If you see the same items mentioned than there's no need to repeat what they are or do, but feel free to put them in your Top 5

    You never know, you might find something you never saw on Cydia :D

    Here is my list....

    1. SBSettings (toggle on/off 3G, wifi, BT, SSH, brightness)
    2. Backgrounder (I use this to run apps like Pandora or AIM in the background)
    3. Tap to Unlock (I find this SO much easier than sliding to unlock/answering phone)
    4. Cycorder (Video recording w/ audio works pretty well IMO)
    5. Status Notifier (shows email/sms/phone icons in status bar for every missed call/message)

    I find these the most helpful and makes my iphone experience that much better.

    Thats great man. I didn't need links from Dec. I wanted anyone to participate with there apps and what they do. Some people, like myself, maybe never tried them and wanted to see other peoples opinions.

    I really only use it for Pandora and AIM and it's not that bad. I only use AIM for a few minutes to talk to certain people so I don't have the apps running all day. I'm sure if you use it all day, it will be a juice hog.

    Anyone know how to edit Status Notifier so that it looks like it does in the screen shot in Cydia. So that text/emails/calls have the icon on the lock screen with a full size looking app?
