    I was wondering if anyone has posted a tutorial or video or whatever on how to create apps for cydia. I've looked around A LOT and haven't found anything. All I know is that python is used to create them, (right?). So any help would be appreciated.

    You create an app for a jailbroken phone the same way you would a non jailbroken phone. Code the application in Objective-C, sign it, and distribute. Cydia Store apps are the same as any other app.

    There are links in Cydia to pages that go over how to make applications. I highly recommend Jonathan Zdziarski's books on the topic. He was an original member of the DevTeam, one of the first people to make apps for a jailbroken phone (NES emulator), and the very first to have a book on programming for a jailbroken iPhone. He is also known by the handle NerveGas.
