15 Widgets that are Available for Jailbroken iOS 5 Right Now

Forum member jonathanl374 has put together an extremely helpful list of all the widgets that are currently available for iOS 5 if you jailbreak. Currently there are 18 listed, though the list is going to be updated if or when more become available. Some are available today, though others are being kept under wraps until iOS 5 is officially shipping later this year. The widgets range froman RSS feed to a quick way to search Google. Without further ado, here they are:

Again, that helpful list comes from jonathanl374 (stop by and say thanks!).

Considering that iOS 5 is still very much in a beta form, it’s fantastic to see that developers are already reaching in to the system and trying to make widgets for the OS. It’s opening a door that I was personally hoping to see Apple officially prop open, but this is the second best thing. Who knows, widgets for Notification Center might just be the next “killer” reason to jailbreak your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch!

Be sure to stop by the comments and give a shout out if you know of any other widgets!
