IntelliScreenX is my favourite jailbreak application for the iPhone. In iOS 5, the notification center was brought to our screens. But it could do so much more, and do a lot better. It lets you see everything you have coming in from your lock screen -- all at a glance.
The notification center is replaced by this app, but adds so much more. It adds emails, Facebook, Twitter, phone calls, instant messaging notifications, plus more. From the weather, to RSS feeds, and even stock quotes, you can customise it completely to get exactly what you want from your lock screen.
At $9.99, it is entirely worth it. It comes with a free trial so you can see exactly what you're getting.
Price: $9.99 (+ free trial.)
Compatible with: iOS 5, 5.0.1, and 5.1.
SMSmileys replaces written text-based emoticons with actual emoticons. Such a small feature, but it's missing from iOS. Seeing as the iPhone is such a consumer -- and business -- focused device, it's astounding to think that the technology giant doesn't add such a simple feature.
Again: this is what jailbreaking is for. It gives you customisation -- often for free -- that you could get from other smartphones, like Android or BlackBerrys, yet retains the glamour of being an iPhone.
Compatible with: iOS 5, 5.0.1, 5.1.
Springtomize 2 for iOS 5+ allows you to "customise every aspect of your phone", and is one of if not the single most powerful and advanced application for your jailbroken iPhone.
This application gives you the tools to customise your iOS device, to make it look and feel how you want. It provides plenty of options to modify even the littlest aspect of your device, and it's all in one single place. You can tweak status bars, the colours of the interface, animations and capabilities, dock reflections, unrestrict folder sizes -- and even "skin" or theme your iOS interface to make it look like, of all things, an Android device.
If there is one reason and one reason alone to buy an iPhone and immediately jailbreak it, it's because of this fantastic app. It's worth every cent; in fact, it should probably cost more.
Compatible with: iOS 5+ (also for iPad, iPod touch.)
