Activator is one of the most popular jailbreak iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch applications available. It allows you to assign gestures and reassign hardware buttons to launch applications or perform certain functions.
With it, you can assign any hardware key on your iPhone, such as the home button, to launch an application on a sequence, such as a double-press or a short-hold press. You can even assign your volume up- and down-buttons to adjust how loud your music is -- while short-holding the up-key to skip to the next track, and short-holding the down-key to jump to the previous track.
Compatible with: iOS 5, 5.0.1 (and 5.1, though not yet officially supported, it works.)
SBSettings adapts your lock screen and notification center to bring you the toggle buttons you need and use on a regular basis in one place.
From your lock screen and notification center, you can easily toggle all kinds of settings without digging around in the depths of your menus. From 3G data toggling to Wi-Fi networking toggling, you can even adjust the brightness of your device and see how much data you are using all in one place.
For power users, this is an absolute must-install.
Compatible with: iOS 5+ (and 5.1.)
3G Unrestrictor 5 works on all versions of iOS 5, including the latest iOS 5.1 version. It tweaks applications to allow normally disallowed 3G services to run when there is no Wi-Fi connection available. This means you can video call your friends without using Wi-Fi, or backup your device with iCloud, as it bypasses the need to be connected to a high-speed broadband network.
But be careful. There is a reason why Apple restricts these settings -- so that iPhone users do not churn up their data tariffs by using FaceTime or Skype video.
Price: $3.99 (or $1.99 upgrade.)
Compatible with: iOS 5+ (including 5.1.)
