Apple does not allow its iDevices to use applications that are not located in the AppStore. This is applied to everyone without any exceptions, so this is the reason that Jailbreak was discovered. By Jailbreaking your iDevice, you FREE it from this restriction, and you are able to use ANY application you want.
Benefits of Jailbreak – Cydia application
Cydia is the AppStore of Jailbroken applications, which means that after the jailbreak of your iDevice, you will be able to connect with Cydia and download/install any iOS application you want. But why Apple blocks all the third party applications? Is there any danger behind those Jailbroken applications?
No, of course there isn’t any danger. Cydia is not a place where ANYONE can upload his/her application. Cydia monitors what applications are being uploaded and it also tests them for any malicious behaviors.
Top Cydia applications – Benefits of Jailbreak
The first application everyone downloads and installs to a Jailbroken iDevice is the WinterBoard. It allow you to customize the look of your iOS Device (You can change literally everything!), such as themes and icons. You will be able to personalize your iDevice and make it 100% unique!
Apple didn’t create a very user friendly interface, when it comes on configuring an iDevice’s settings. SBSettings application grands you extremely quick access to anything you may need, such as Wi-Fi, bluetooth, GPS, 3/4G and much more.
More Benefits of Jailbreak you can get from Cydia!
It is basically an iOS task switcher (and much more!). You will be able to get access to much more features, such as preview an app, delete it or delete multiple apps using more than one fingers. This is not supported by the iOS by itself!
iOS does not have many widgets like the Android and Windows operating systems, but this is what Dashboard X tries to change. It is a great tool which has hundreds of settings and features to play with!
Make sure to see if the application you want to download from Cydia is FREE, because it also contains paid apps as well. These are only a few Benefits of Jailbreak. There are many applications that can boost your iDevice’s performance or even increase the life of your battery!
