There is a new widget available that would allow you to initiate a Cydia search via a Notification Center widget. It is called Cydia-SearchNC.
This past weekend, the App Store removed a fake Cydia app. This was a completely bogus app that was falsifying and tricking users into thinking it was the App Store for jailbreak apps and tweaks.
For quiet sometime, there was buzz about iOSOpenDev, an app that aimed at lowering the learning curve for iOS developers looking to create jailbreak tweaks. This app had been described as a utility that would allow users to develop tweaks using Apple’s own Xcode software.
