The whole point of jailbreaking our iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches is to apply modifications and customizations above and beyond what Apple allows. A standard iOS device comes bound up in chains, stopping us from doing what we want with it; jailbreaking gets us past that and Cydia is the jailbreak app store where we get these modifications and customizations from. Cydia is constantly being updated with new apps and tweaks and the following are just five of the very best, both free and paid.
