If you've got a jailbroken iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch and have never been a fan of notification banners or how they take up the entire top of the screen until they decide to roll away on their own, MiniBanners may be for you.
NCPad for iPad forces banner notifications to stretch the entire length of the screen whether you're in portrait or landscape mode. This allows more information to be viewed than what iOS allows with stock banner notifications.

AlbumArt on AppSwitcher does exactly what the title says - adds album art to your app switcher.

This way I don't have to jump into my iPod app, I can simply bring up my app switcher and look without having to stop what I'm doing.
Once installed from Cydia there's nothing to configure or set up, it should just work. It's available for free and requires iOS 5.0 or higher.
