I'm looking for good iPhone apps for my phone. What are some good ones?
Either from Cydia, Installer or the App Store.
A description would be cool!

I recommend that you try the Storyz app - it's also in the app store.

You can use it to send pictures, videos and text among you and your friends, something like group SMS/MMS

it also can be used with pc and normal mobile phone.
