Ever since the iPhone and iPad were jailbroken, people have been doing cool stuff on their devices by installing great apps from Cydia, that they would not have been able to install otherwise. Cydia is sort of like an unmoderated App Store where you find all kinds of apps that Apple is too reluctant to approve for the official marketplace.
On Cydia, you can find apps to change almost everything about your iPhone. You can install unsigned apps using Cydia, download apps like iBlueNova that let you send and receive files via Bluetooth. However, in order to download apps, you have to add proper Cydia sources. Cydia sources are exactly what the name suggests, they list apps you can then install.
Cydia comes with a few stock repos or sources. You can find many apps on these stock repositories but for many other apps, you have to add a source first. We have collected 20 best Cydia sources or repos you can add to your device to find numerous apps that let you do more on your iOS device.
Bite Your Apple Source
Some of the notable apps in this repository include Full Screen for Safari, GroupSMS, Home Page in Safari and Wifi Sync. That last one is kind of redundant in the iOS 5.0 and later versions as Apple has made that option default in new iOS version. But, this source is still good for other great apps for cydia.
