    Curious, if we were to send a message to Apple, which 3 JB apps would you like to see in App Store that would be enough for you to go back to mainstream?

    In other words, what are the top deficiencies that alternative Apps address that makes your iPhone worth hanging on to in spite of the great features of other service providers or hardware manufacturers.

    For me, Google Voice, Auto Silent, Exchange Unlock. If Google Nav ever makes it to the iPhone, that would be gravy.

    Info on lock screen, updated weather in the status bar, being able to generate a text while in other apps. That's my personal list :)

    Intelliscreen.

    Having my calendar and email available as previews without having to unlock the phone, open calendar, look at the next few days, or see who emailed me without having to unlock, is AWESOME.

    I'd also settle for some kind of today/agenda view, maybe as a page past spotlght or something.

    Just three? :D

    I think I need SBSettings, Backgrounder/Kirikae, Winterboard, Liveclock & Weather Icon, Status Notifier, and Lockscreen Info.

    None. I need access to the file system. Apple won't allow that.

    Why would it drain battery more than anything else?

    Dont know but that is why many have gone with doing it with SSH because it was a big battery drainer. Just like some other Apps have been known to.

    Flashlight on Cydia. Seriously hate all of the official AppStore Flashlight apps because they can't stop the iPhone from automatically dimming after a few seconds.

    I haven't noticed a huge drain, but I also limit it to just email, sms, calendar, weather. There's an option for RSS feeds that I imagine would destroy your battery though.

    Without a doubt, it's SBSettings - It makes the easy-to-use iPhone even easier. :apple:

    I'd have to say…

    iFile, as I use this app Constantly.

    Backgrounder/mQuickdo

    and SBSettings (only if they make the activation gesture more constant-as it plays havoc when trying to use mQuickdo.)

    Sling and Skype over 3G would be huge for me (I know Skype is coming but I don't think we'll see Sling for a while, if ever). SBSettings, Backgrounder and something similar to Intelliscreen would be great as well.

    My friend says:

    SBSetting
    Backgrounder
    3g unrestrictor (less of an issue if Skype over 3g will work, but the d/l cap over iTunes remains annoying)

    LockInfo
    StatusNotifier
    SafairDownloads/iFile (Go hand in hand... I wouldn't need iFile if I couldn't download files)

    LockInfo and Status Notifier look like they are things that Apple "forgot". They are perfect and I can't use my phone without them.

    Not necessarily "apps", but anyway....

    Backgrounder
    Scrobbler
    The ability to customize... everything

    People always tell Apple they want this... but lets think about it...

    In the 20+ years that Apple has been around, on Mac OS X we can customize... The color of our Close, Minimize and Maximize buttons!!!! Oh, and just to Colored or Grey! :p

    Customization is not going to be in the iPhone's future. It's more likely they would integrate smaller changes bit by bit to make each release seem revolutionary.
