AdSense Content Unit

There are a lot of iPhone, iPad and iPod users who jailbreak their iDevice to get Cydia. There are many other reasons also such as, they want to remove all the restrictions from apps which are imposed by Apple, and without jailbreaking they never remove those limits. Best Cydia Apps give them the real environment of Apple app store with many of paid tweaks at free of cost.

Once you jailbroken your iPad, iPod Touch or iPhone, you got the ability to install all those free Cydia tweaks in your iOS. There are thousands upon thousands of tweaks available out there in app store, so, its very time consuming job to find out the best out of the best.

If you are iOS 7 user, you can still use Top Cydia sources, you need to jailbreak your iPhone 5S, 5C, iPad or iPod Touch using iJailbreakPro that is incredible jailbreaker tool for iOS 7.

Its not good idea to test all those useful tweaks out there in app store to find out the best one. One more thing that you should keep in mind that its also harmful for your iPhone performance and battery life to install numerous apps. To make everything easy we have picked up Top 12 Cydia Apps for you so that you don’t need to install each and every tweak to test.

12 Best Cydia Apps that You Can’t Miss Out

I have picked up and listed this apps based on users reviews and download counts. They are top on their category such as productivity, utility, networks and customization. If you are looking for a bunch of top tweaks, then I would recommend a few of Top Cydia Sources that have a bunch of paid apps at free of cost. Mostly they are from Apple app store. Till then take a look at these top of the top apps.

1 Dreamboard: This is such a incredible app that you can’t imagine. Perhaps, you are aware of limitations imposed by Apple. You can’t use custom themes, icons and lockscreen styles. Dreamboard allows you to change themes, icons and lockscreen within a few seconds. It is better than Winterboard at many ways. This is the best Cydia app for theme customization. If you think that your iPhone look is boring, then you can use Dreamboard to customize it.

2 Activator: This app gives you better navigation experience. You can easily toggle from one app to another. You can instantly close or launch any app. Home button is the key feature for any iOS device, Activation make it so cool that you can access more powerful home button from any app, if you have installed Activator. This is one of the most essential Cydia apps.

3 IntelliScreenX: It gives more power to Notification center. You can add your social media activity accounts to get instant alert. IntelliScreenX is so powerful that you can access it from your lockscreen too. You can add your email account for real time updates. This is also top downloaded app in Cydia store.

4 SBSettings: I personally have been using SBSettings since the start of jailbreaking and Cydia tweaks. I love SBSettings. Many users like me don’t like built-in messaging center. We all are aware of iOS 7 iMessage app bug. If you are also facing any bug or do not like default SMS app, you can download SBSettings right now. It is on top in SMSing apps in Cydia.

5 Springtomize 2: If you are looking for more fresh icons for your iPhone, then Springtomize 2 is for you. This is the best iPhone app that changes your iDevice icons within a seconds. You can set up as many new icon sets as you want. You can use a lot of different icon set without changing your existing theme.

6 Zephyr: This Cydia tweak on the top of my apps list in utility category. You can instantly switch between all open apps by swiping bottom to top and left to right for different cause. It mainly care of all your open applications. Zephyr is one of the best multitasking gesture adder. This is also must have tweak.

7 Browser Chooser: Most of all iOS users use their iDevice on the go with internet connection. You are well aware of default web browser “Safari”. Any of link from any application will be open in Safari and if you want to change it to Google Chrome or Firefox, Apple will not allow it. Here Browser chooser comes to rescue you. It offers to set up default browser whatever you like, whether you like Google Chrome or Firefox, it will set up it for you. All future links from any apps, will be open in your preferred browser. Browser chooser is a free Cydia application.

8 iFile: If you are advance user who want deep file system settings, then iFile is the app that can give you all the ability to change file system. Using this Cydia app, you will be able to modify, change or delete system files that normally Apple will not allow you. You can use advance file and folder feature such as hide, read only and etc. However, iFile is not a free application, you will have to pay up to $4 for it. You can buy it iFile from Cydia app store.

9 Hands-Free Control: This is one of the best Cydia apps for Siri. We all use Siri in daily use while SMS or finding anything on the web. Siri works in background each and every moment, so, it consumes a lot of battery power. Hands-Free Control all gives you control over Siri. When you install this Cydia app, it runs in background and listen all your conversation and commands. At that time Siri will be deactivated and you will save your battery consumption, when you speak “Siri”, Hands-Free Control app will prompt you for your confirmation to activate Siri, just say “Yes”, Siri will be activate.

10 SiriToggles: This Cydia app will add more functionality to Siri. If you need more power to your Siri, just install it. You will able to control your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch much better with Siri using SiriToggles. You will have better control on system settings, apps and theme customization such as background brightness control over command using Siri.

From Editor’s Desk

All above apps work on iOS 7 users need to use iJailbreakPro to jailbreak their iPhone 5, 5S, 5C, iPad and iPod Touch that run on iOS 7 or newer firmware. EvasiOn is also ready to jailbreak your iOS 7 with Cydia installation. There are couple of more Cydia Downloader that you can try for.

You all were thinking that I have left two Cydia apps in above list, but it’s your turn to complete that list. I have added top tweaks that are frequently used by users, however, there are a lot more apps to add here, because all users have their own choice.

I would recommend you to give your valuable reply with the app name which you are using in your iOS device and what is your favorite Cydia app. You can contact us and leave a note there about your choice about the best tweak.

    SBSettings does not work with the new 7.1.2+ update. Keeps crashing and forcing into SafeMode. Anyone else know of an app that integrates RAM amounts into the menu bar ?

  • Anthony Talbert

    The Activator tweak says iOS 7.1 not supported Hands-Free Control says iOS 7 not supported. The title of this article says “12 Best iOS 7.1.2 – 7.1.1 Cydia Apps…”
    Hmmmm…..
    Did you actually test any of these?

  • Snoppy1972

    Hands-free control not available for IOS 7.1.1 give it a alternative

  • Sam

    Jesus Christ, not only does the list not even have 12 entries as the title says, but most of these don’t even work with with ios7.

  • Brett

    How can you tell if someone is monitoring your phone using cydia How can you tell if your phone has been jailbreaked

    • Jordan

      Jailbreaking is something you use to install apps not approved by Apple. It’s like making your “TOAST”er accept bagels too – it’s perfectly safe, but it’s not what it was meant to do. Cydia is simply an app store with unofficial apps in it. No one can monitor your phone with jailbreaking, you have to jailbreak your phone yourself.

  • Carlos

    Great information. My only question is what sources if any do you use outside of the ones that come stock with Cydia? “Best Apps” Indeed for iPad Air

    Oh and one thing that I think would be great is if you did best Paid and best Free in different list.

    Anyway, thanks again for the great info, some of these are going on my phone right now!

    I’m looking for the same best Cydia apps for iPad Mini 2 with iOS 7 (7.0.6)
