    Nice, it reminded me I need to download ProSwitcher. I really want to buy MiWi, but at $10 I don't know how much I'll use it.

    iFile ...great for tinkering with the phone when out and about.

    SnapTap...lets you use the volume buttons as the shutter button for the camera.

    biteSMS...better SMS prog lets you reply from within any app,compose quick txt without opening main program.

    SBSettings...quick access to settings.

    YourTube....great for downloading YouTube vids all from within the standard app.

    3G Unrestrictor...Fools certain apps into thinking it has a wifi connection.

    Intelliscreen..Calendar events, RSS feeds and more on the lockscreen.

    i personally liked snaptap, but i believe the new version of snappy is just great. the ability to load the camera without closing the current app is great, and with the new version, you can now take video. definitely replaces all camera apps imo.

    I only have one of those; Snappy. Looking at my phone, I would vote for iFile, AttachmentSaver, Safari Download Manager, QuickReply, QuickScroll and QuickShottr.

    Some people like to reward good ideas and good development. Myself included!

    1) Most people do not like to steal things from others.

    2) These aren't "hacked apps." These are apps that someone, or some people, have spent hours coding and compiling to run on the phone.

    I could jump on your favorite torrent site and download a version of Photoshop, but that, too, is stealing, from the developers/coders at Adobe.

    It occurs to me that a lot of folks these days somehow see a difference between stealing software and stealing something physical. You wouldn't find a lot of folks who think it's alright to steal gasoline from your neighbor's car, however, some of those same folks wouldn't bat an eye about downloading a torrent of Windows Vista from the Pirate Bay...

    I have no problem paying these developers. I have payed for music controls, quick reply for sms, mywi, universal search. Just as i would the offical app store apps. I don't jailbreak my phone to "hack it" to get "Free stuff" I do it because i love the iPhone as it is, but i just want a few added features that i feel are needed.

    if i could find a working version of stacks, that doesn't send my phone into safe mode, i would pay for that to!

    UniversalSearch is another amazing app. It turns the iPhone search page into something useful with links for google, maps, dictionary, espn, yelp, flickr, etc. Costs $5, tho.

    2.99 for quick reply. I still don't get the deal with not wanting to pay upwards of... 5 dollars for a jailbroken app. yikes

    I didn't forget Quick Reply. That same function has been available
    since 2008 (iRealSMS). I only made the video for programs released in 2009 and that share the same function.

    Is there a app that allows to skip songs and such without leaving the program you're currently in? I was hoping SBSettings would have a toggle but that only pause/play.

    If your using a iPod then you can just double tap home button and a menu shows up that does just that. Now if you want that for other music programs such as Slacker,Pandora,Last.FM then download Music Controls in Cydia. It costs $4.99 but works beautifully!
