After Absinthe 2.0: best post jailbreak apps
Absinthe 2.0, the long awaited untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.1.1, is finally out and now seems like the perfect time to dive down in Cydia and look for the best apps you can now freely install on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. 

Ranging from small tweaks to bigger changes like themes and modifying button behavior and adding gestures, these Cydia apps will not only boost your iOS experience, but make you feel free of Apple’s somewhat restrictive App Store. We look forward to also hearing about your favorite post-jailbreak apps, so let us know in the comments below, but now here are our picks.

I'm surprised not to see any tethering apps. I know that's against the rules nowadays, but there are a few apps that do some work to mask the fact that you're tethering. I've used MiWi for a while, but switched over to PDANet. Has two levels of hiding the fact that you're tethering.

Seen people getting charged for tethering because of these apps. Including pdanet.

Anyway I heard of all these apps except pull down to refresh but that would annoy me anyway. Would of loved a bigger list and fresher apps. Disapointed. If youn wanted to give starter apps you didn't evrn give winter board. Disapointing.

Bite SMS is also a cool app that lets you compose a message from any app and reply to a message from any app as well.

I find it so difficult to understand that if you want features then why buy featureless ios devices and jailbreak it and work so very hard to install apps that are present as core android apps. If you want the android features then just buy it. If you want customization buy android. If you want freedom buy android. If you dont need all this then you can buy ios devices

and if you want virus, spyware and malware buy android devices.
one thing you cann't understand is the truth that the ios devices are more safe than android devices.
one thing else, when there is an software update for appel it will be for all devices even for iphone 3, for android each one is swimming in his own pool

I like both OS's and have devices. The truth is, your are very, very, very unlikely to get spyware, a virus or malware on your Android device unless you're a complete moron. If you are a complete idiot, as in someone show can't spell "Apple", then you shouldn't buy a smartphone to begin with.
As I mentioned, I use and enjoy both Android and IOS. Truth be told; Android is leaps and bounds a more functional and sophisticated OS. There are things I can do with my Galaxy Nexus, hell, my 2 year old Samsung Fascinate that IOS just does not do...simple things. IOS has a lot of catching up to do.
