    I just downloaded iFile.
    And i was wondering what stuff you can do with it?
    I already know you can change the plist files.
    But what are other things iFile is used fore?

    It's not something you can force yourself to use, it's like Windows Explorer (Windows)/Finder (Mac). You'll know when you need to use it but it's not something that has a specific use. When I used to use it, I used it to edit plist/css/html files for themes/widgets.

    It is one of those programs that is on a must have list, yet is used rarely. But at the same time, used for lots of things. I'd just keep in around for when you will use it. Like ChrisL said, it's like Windows Explorer or Mac's Finder.

    Good for installing deb files, and installing themes without cydia or a computer. Once safari download manager comes out for ios4, get that, those 2 work well together
