There is bound to be a lot more so please add here and we can make a decent list for new jailbreakers and old jailbreakers looking for new things to do/use.

 

Edit 9/10/14:- This list has gotten big! Thanks to all the input from members for this. Can i ask you, if you do want something added to the list then follow the format, dont worry about bullet points, i mean the  - part with description, thanks

In place of winterboard I chain together bigify+, dockshift, aquaboard. Makes my device feel a little more unique than setting someone's pre created winterboard theme. Plus aquaboard has me tapping my homepage all day on my ipad lol. F.lux is extremely nice for nighttime use of my ipad. Simply changes the color tone of the screen to a more pleasant warm tone for night viewing. Localiapstore is a must for any avid apple device gamer. Bloard is good if your like me and want a black keyboard for your black device.

Omg can't believe of forget "NoSpot ios7" For anyone that hates the pointless spotlight tool as I do. That app is a must have. Gets rid of spotlight altogether.

Check out FlipControlCentre for most of that. For what the controlcentre can't do, Springtomize 3 can

Great list ya got here!

I find myself using SwitchSpring regularly. It lets you restart the springboard or kill all apps in the same way you would go about closing an app. Swipe up on the Home screen from the app switcher.

  1. Are you referring to mine or OP's list or both? 
  2. SwitchSpring is a must have with SlideForUsage and maybe with Vertex :D
