1 AppCake: Actually AppCake is not a tweak, but its a Cydia app and that app contains thousands of great tweaks which you never find in any other app. After Installous, it is most famous and useful app for those who like tweaks.
Actually, it is one of the best Installous alternatives. You can find cracked themes, icons and lockscreen tweak in that app. If you have never access, then you should, because it contains many of those premium paid apps in it’s database at free of cost.
2 IntelliscreenX: It is the best Cydia app and cool lockscreen tweak. If you are social media addict and love to get each and every updates, then IntelliscreenX for you. It is similar to your built-in notification center but more than just like notification center. It offers incredible real-time updates.
You can add your Facebook, Tweeter and Google+ account and of course your Gmail account to get instant updates. You can access IntelliscreenX on lockscreen too and this is the good tweak that built-in Notification center doesn’t provide.
3 LockInfo: If you like IntelliscreenX, then you will like LockInfo too. These both Cydia tweaks offer custom notification on lockscreen activation mode. I have seen many of friends who want each and every single alert and account on the lockscreen.
Built-in Notification center hasn’t such powerful feature that LockInfo offers. This is the best alternative for IntelliscreenX. I would suggest you that install one of these two tweaks and only add important updates to your lockscreen.
4 SBSettings: It is must have Cydia Tweak that powers up other built-in apps like bluetooth, brightness controller, SSH, network connection and much more. Actually, it has been on the top since after Cydia was introduced.
I am also one of them who have jailbroken their iOS because of SBSettings tweak app. Normally you can’t adjust brightness in your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, whereas SBSettings allows you to do all these stuff in just a few clicks.
5 : It is not just a incredible SMS app but it is more than it. It converts your built-in SMS app into quick SMS center. Once you will install this Cydia tweak in your iPhone, it will allow you to access it’s setting penal where you can set your Signature, Passcode, Custom Templates and also you can schedule your SMS for later occasion. This is also one of the top tweaks that every iPhone, iPad users should have.
6 Springtomize 2: I am one of those crazy guys who love to customize their iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. I love to see my iPhone as completely unique and different from others. This Cydia tweak does everything that I want in my iPhone.
It changes the look and design and change the icons that I want. If you are also love to customize your iOS 6.1.3 or 6.1.4 icons just like iOS 8.1.2.x.x then Springtomize 2 will do that for you. Its just like WinterBoard, but more than that.
7 : It allows multitasking feature to your iOS. It adds cool features to iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. It makes navigation too easy that you can access all your iOS apps within a few clicks. Swipe bottom to top to see all the running apps right on your screen. You can switch from one app to another one or just close unused app. You have tried many tweaks, but this is the one which you must have.
8 : This is also must have tweak that enable all the basic functions that have been blocked by Apple. Apple does’t allow theme change, background brightness changer, icon and lockscreen change. This Cydia tweak makes everything so easy in your iPad or iPhone.
9 : It is one of the best Cydia tweaks to make changes in your iOS UI. Actually, Dreamboard works just similar to Winterboard which quite more popular, because it came before Dreamboard. However, It is better tweak than Winterboard. There is two reasons for this. First is easy to change the gestures and second most importantly it applies changes within a second. I would recommend this Cydia tweak, if you are theme lover. Dreamboard and Winterboard is all about theme customization.
10 : If you have visited Apple app store, you have already saw many paid apps that you have to purchase in order to use. Many of these paid apps you can find in vShare at free of cost. Most of these apps and hacks are very useful. This tweak is similar to AppCake and Installous. You can count it in another Installous alternatives and must have tweak.
