Who says you need a phone to make a call. All you need is an iPod and Skype! You cannot call it one of the best substitutes for a phone, but it will suffice your needs to some extent. Connect your iPod to Wi-Fi network and make Skype-to-Skype calls or Skype to actual phone numbers.

You must have noticed when you double-tap the home button, you first see the first application in the dock. Then, you need to scroll left and reach the iPod control. When you install DirectControl, you can directly reach Now-Playing controls and there is no need to scroll. The best thing is, you can set it to behave in this manner at all times or just when you are playing music on your iPod touch.

This Cydia app enables you to take High Dynamic Range (HRD) photos with you iPod Touch 4G. All you need to do is launch and select the ‘HRDEnabler’.

This app supports iPod touch 2G/3G/4G. Do try the demo version first to see it is compatible with your phone. If yes, then you can think about purchasing this useful app.

Top Cydia Apps for iPad

iPad users too have a wide range of choice when it comes to Cydia apps. For example:

3G Unrestrictor
This is a great app that tricks you iPad to think it is running on Wi-Fi Internet, when you are actually using a 3G or EDGE network. Thus, you can make and receive calls on FaceTime, download videos faster, make free calls using Skype and do many more fun things on your iPad when using your normal 3G or EDGE network.

Looking for an app that helps manage your files? iFile is a Cydia app that allows you to create and delete folders, rename them, open files directly and many more useful actions.

For just $2, you can protect your individual apps on iOS with Locktopus. Not only does it allow you to add a password to your Native apps and apps from Apple store, but also Cydia apps. This will help protect your apps from begin used without your permission.

You must have noticed you cannot delete your Cydia apps like you delete your App Store apps. You need to launch Cydia and then uninstall the app from the menu. However, CyDelete will help you delete Cydia apps from your application screen. Just tap on the app till it starts to wriggle. Then, click on the little X to delete the Cydia app.

These are some of the best apps that you will love adding on your jail broken Apple iPhone. There are hundreds of applications available and these are just a few that I find are the best.
