1.- SBSettings Cydia App

The best thing about it is you can access the app almost anywhere. Simply tap or swipe on the status bar and your toggle switches can be made available, and you can easily change your settings.
Don’t you just hate how your iPod Touch just never seems to pair up with any other device through Bluetooth? Well those days are gone. For $4.99 on Cydia, you get an app that let’s you sync with any device that has Bluetooth.
Be it a computer, a phone or even an iPad. AirBlue supports the transfer of multiple files and almost any type including documents, pictures, songs and even videos.
We know today that digital files are made as easily as they can be deleted. All it takes is a clumsy finger to press delete or a crash for us to loose all our files. So aside from saving, we should learn to back-up our files. iTunes offers this feature, but what about your jailbroken and Cydia files?
PkgBackup does that for you. Simply click on the app and a file is created. If you want an even safer method, you can sync your backed-up files to Dropbox.
Now you can change the theme and design of your iPod Touch. It is able to change the smallest elements and is even used by other free apps to create extra tweaks to your iPod Touch.
Who wants Siri? Raise your hands. This nifty iPod Touch app installs Siri on any 4th generation iPod Touch. It does not need proxies or any configuration whatsoever. The only set back is that it may take a few minutes or hours to activate. But once it’s activated, you’ll have the little genius at your fingertips.
You’re walking down the street or having a chat with a friend or reading an article, then a question pops up and you just need to know the answer. With QuickGoogle, you can easily access Google with an activator button from anywhere in you iPod Touch. You could even be playing a game or surfing the web while using the app. Definitely a Google-worthy invention.
7.- Display Recorder
Do you like making tutorials or simply want to show off what your device can do? Display Recorder allows you to quickly and easily record your iPod Touch screen. The recording is high quality and you can edit and adjust the settings right in the app itself. It also features direct uploading to YouTube.
8.- VLC Media Player
This app was originally made available on the App Store but was quickly pulled out due to licensing issues. Similar to it’s computer counter-part, this media player can play nearly any format known to man. You never need any other player when you have this, and it’s completely free.
9.- Infini Suite
Technically this are three iPod Touch apps, instead of just one. The first is Infinidock, which allows the user to add an endless amount of icons on their dock. The second app is Infiniboard, which allows left-right and up-down swiping of icons. Last is the Infinifolders app. No longer will you be limited to only 15 apps per folder.
Put in as many as you want. Definitely a smooth and remarkable suite at just $0.99 per app on Cydia.
One of the best security apps out there. You can draw anything from a letter to a shape, or image, or even your signature. To add even more security, you can choose between adding the PIN lock after the gesture, but you can also simply choose the gesture alone. If you’ve forgotten what to draw don’t fret, there’s always the option of just filling in your PIN.
Now you can take a photo without the sound or the flash. Best of all, you can take a photo even while using other iPod Touch apps.
Calling all music lovers, here is an app for you. It searches and finds almost any song and allows you to play it on your device. Like what you’re listening to? Save the song so you can play it back even where you’re offline.
Jailbroken apps aren’t as easy to delete as regular apps and are usually deleted from inside Cydia. With CyDelete all you’ll need to do is press that “X” when in jiggle mode. No longer will it be too difficult or time consuming. So get CyDelete and start cleaning up your homescreen now.
14.- Manual Correct
The iPod Touch’s autocorrect feature can sometimes be more of a pain than a blessing. It just doesn’t seem to read your mind. Manual Correct turns this feature off and merely suggests words. It also underlines misspelled words but it leaves the actual correcting up to you.
15.- Springtomize 2
An app that’s even better than Springtomize 1 brings a vast amount of tweaks and customizations. To name a few you will be able to customize your lockscreen, resize icons, hide page dots, change the dock and icons, and hundreds more. This iPod Touch application is more about the feel of the device than the look so some people prefer it over Winterboard when they’re not too concerned about looks.
