A great App Store alternative on jailbroken devices, Cydia is a must have for every geek alive. There are so many things you can do with the various applications available on the Cydia Store.

The Cydia Store is however not as clean as the App Store and hence looking for a certain kind of App using the small screen of your iOS device can be a little tiring. Why? Because plainly there are quite a few Sources that one normally searches in and lots and lots of applications, themes, screensavers and wallpapers in every corner.

Keeping this in mind, Planet iPhones have come out with a web app that will instead search entire Cydia App collection to find what you’re looking for.

You can search and browse all the applications on Cydia that you’re missing out on if you’ve not jailbroken your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad.
