SBSettings is quite a useful utility to quickly turn on and off different parameters (f.e. 3G, WiFi, Bluetooth), adjust brightness and etc. Now users can activate and deactivate the screen lock.
When the icons is green, it means that after a certain number of minutes (depending on the settings) the iPhone will enter into standby mode turning off the screen.
Changing the icon in Red will be the exact opposite. The lock will be removed and the device will remain fixed with illuminzione active.

Remember Stack version 2.2 video posted recently? There will be no 2.2. version and current version (2.1) will be removed from the repository quite soon. Why? The developer is angry at hackers, who cracked his apps avaliable in AppStore:
“I have to work extra hard as it is on creating things for the App Store, but when people like paniK go ahead and make my software available to pirates and I watch sales vanish overnight, it means I have to spend much more time on marketing and development for my App Store apps to try and offset my losses, leaving no time for projects like Stack that earn me nothing.”

Categories allows you to create folders on your desktop. It is a nice application from Cydia, recently updated to version 2.23.
Here is a change list:
- Fixed issue where users behind a proxy had the app close and safari open in some cases.
- Worked on memory usage. Fixed a large memory leak. (There is still a memory leak in the configuration part of the app, but it’s not as big. I hope I get time to fix it in the near future).
- The iPhone 2.1 and newer froze up when trying to respring with less than 7MB RAM. When memory got low, springboard would kill the app causing it to respring and freeze up. The respring flag should now be cleared in most cases when memory gets this low.
- The app will now detect if it gets closed due to low memory and allow you to continue your editing where you left off.
- Memory free and respring state are now in the status bar while the app is running

Here's a preview of a new application TapSB. It will be avaliable in Cydia soon. This is a new Mod, which allows user to move from page to page of Springboard using a system of zoom in and out.
