If you've never jailbroken your iOS device before and have been wondering what all the fuss is about, the video above is a great indicator of the things you can do once you free your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch from the locked up clutches of Apple restrictions. In fact, even if you're a part of the jailbreak community, you may find some great tools here as well. This video gives you a quick walkthrough of thirty different jailbreak tools that you can use to make your devices more productive and more fun. Give it a look.
So, you've heard all about this iPhone jailbreak stuff, but haven't ever taken the plunge? The folks over at ReadWriteWeb have put together 30 reasons why you might wanna consider it. While the team "jailbreak" might sound a bit scary, what you are basically doing by jailbreaking your device is enabling the ability to install apps that aren't in the App Store because Apple wouldn't accept them for one reason or another. In the video above, for example, you get a look at FolderEnhancer, a tweak that allows you to put as many apps into a folder as you'd like, swipe between pages in a folder, and even put folders inside of other folders.
Another of our personal favorites, BiteSMS, makes the list as well, and it's basically SMS the way Apple should have implemented it in the first place. You can reply directly from the notification, send an SMS from anywhere (without having to go into the actual Messaging app,) and much more. There are other tweaks that enable things like FaceTime over 3G (removing the Wi-Fi-only restriction,) and the fantastic SBSettings, which gives you access to toggle a bunch of buried iPhone features off and on from anywhere.
Head on over to ReadWriteWeb for the full list.
