Do you own an iPhone and wanted it to become the best, if not standout, from the rest of your friends who also own an iPhone? Cydia applications are basically apps you can only use after you jailbreak 3G iPhones. They’ve become even more popular recently after the US government declared all jailbreak software is legal.
So if you are wondering what are the best Cydia tweaks for your iPhone in 2011, here are the top apps in my opinion:
1. 3D Board –
